  • Whoopi Goldberg opened up about her weight loss journey.

  • She is also defending Kelly Clarkson’s recent choice to share her experience with weight loss medication.

  • “I’m doing that wonderful shot that works for folks who need some help and it’s been really good for me,” Goldberg told Clarkson.


Whoopi Goldberg recently opened up about her use of weight loss medications while on The Kelly Clarkson Show last week. The conversation led the show’s host, Kelly Clarkson, to address Ozempic use rumors and share her own experience with weight loss drugs, and in defending the singer, Goldberg is sharing more about her own weight loss journey.

It all started when Clarkson told Goldberg that she looks younger every time she sees her. “It’s all the weight I’ve lost,” the 68-year-old quipped. “I’m doing that wonderful shot that works for folks who need some help and it’s been really good for me.”

After Oprah Winfrey shared her weight loss injectable experience in March, Goldberg revealed on The View that Mounjaro, a shot designed to help with blood sugar management in people with type 2 diabetes, is “one of the things that’s helped me drop the weight,” she said.

She continued: “My weight has come and gone, and up and down, but it’s never been an issue for me because I don’t listen to what other people say about me so it has never been a problem. But I think it’s very hard for people to just know what a normal weight would be.”

The alarms sounded for Goldberg when she was accused of wearing a fat suit in her 2023 film Till, she told Clarkson. “I’ve lost almost two people,” she said. “You say to people, ‘Did I always look like that?’ When you realize it, you go ‘Damn,’ and everyone says, ‘Well, I thought you knew.’”

After their discussion, Clarkson faced internet-wide backlash for not sharing her experience earlier. And on the May 15th episode of The View, Goldberg stood up for the singer. “A lot of people are taking the shot because they need it. Some people need bodies jumpstarted, some have diabetes, there’s lots of reasons... there are issues with thyroids,” she said. “We have to let people do what they need to do to get where they need to get to, and stop being mad that they’re not doing it your way.”

Clarkson shared her story when she was ready, just as Goldberg did. “It seems like this generation shares everything,” Goldberg continued. “What they ate for dinner, who they ate for dinner, all kinds of stuff. You have people like myself who, it’s like, ‘When I’m ready to tell you, I’ll tell you. When I’m comfortable, I’ll let you know.’”
