Joy Behar had a hot attitude Kelly Clarksons weight loss journey after the singer confessed to taking a weight loss medication.

Behar, 81, and her fellow panelists – Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Alyssa Farah Griffin And Sunny Hostin – discussed Clarkson’s revelation on the Wednesday, May 15, episode The view. Clarkson, 42, admitted days earlier in a conversation with Goldberg, 68, that although she wasn’t taking Ozempic, she had turned to “something else” to help her body “break down sugar.”

“Kelly is receiving backlash on this from people who say she previously claimed she was losing weight by walking,” Goldberg further noted The view. “She ran, but that helped her.”

Goldberg pointed out that Clarkson has taken heat from all sides over the years when it comes to her body, adding, “They kick her butt when she’s bigger, they kick her butt when she’s bigger.” “She lost weight and now they’re kicking her for saying it out loud.”

Celebrity weight loss and transformations

Really shocking! Some celebrities look for extreme methods to lose weight, while others transform themselves using healthier methods. From Rosie O’Donnell and Jordin Sparks’ respective 50-pound weight losses to Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson, who was a whopping 155 pounds lighter, see before and after pictures of celebrities’ weight loss transformations.

When Haines, 46, argued that “walking or fasting” probably isn’t the only thing that helps many stars lose weight, Behar shared her own views.

“Diets don’t work. I’ve dieted on and off, on and off. You lose it, then you gain it back,” Behar claimed. “Nobody except a sumo wrestler wants to be fat. It’s uncomfortable, clothes don’t fit, everyone wants to lose weight.”

Instead of analyzing which weight loss methods are most effective, Hostin, 55, criticized the social pressures that are responsible for poor body image.

“When you feel good, you will feel better mentally. There is an epidemic of depression in this country, an epidemic of women shaming women, men shaming men, men shaming women. Everything has to stop. People don’t say to a man, ‘Hey, are you taking Viagra?'” she said. “I don’t think the personal health decisions you make should be the subject of discussion.”

As the conversation came to a close, Goldberg explained, “Let people do what they have to do to get where they need to go and stop being angry because they don’t do it your way.” Griffin, 34, joked, “And leave Kelly Clarkson alone!”

Clarkson and Goldberg got candid about their respective weight loss journeys on the Monday, May 13, episode The Kelly Clarkson Show. When Clarkson gushed that her guest looked like she was getting younger every day, Goldberg blamed it on her slimmer figure.

“I lost [the weight of] “Almost two people,” Goldberg revealed, later noting that she “makes this wonderful record that works for people who need a little help, and it was really good for me.”

For her part, Clarkson said she relied on “someone else” and denied that Ozempic helped her transform. (Ozempic is intended for patients with type 2 diabetes and is not recommended by doctors for occasional weight loss.)

As these Hollywood stars show in their words, actions, and online posts, the body positivity movement has officially entered the mainstream. Well-known activists have used social media as a tool to spread more messages of self-love to their fans. Mindy Kaling caused a stir when she posted a series of photos wearing various two-piece suits […]

“Everyone thinks it’s Ozempic, but that’s not the case. “It’s something different,” Clarkson said, explaining that she has “thyroid issues” and her body has difficulty processing sugar. (Earlier this year the American idol alum revealed that she was diagnosed as prediabetic.)

The women of The view aren’t the only ones supporting Clarkson’s weight loss. Al Roker came to her rescue during the Tuesday, May 14, episode Today.

“There’s too much judgment,” he said. “People, as long as they cooperate with their doctors and stay healthy, they should back off and let them live their lives. … It’s not easy whatever you do, so stay out of people’s way.”
