Shonda Rhimes Stuns With Dramatic Weight Loss on Magazine Cover

Shonda Rhimes, the creative genius behind blockbuster TV hits like “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” recently graced the cover of Variety’s “Power of Women” issue, flaunting a visibly slimmer figure that had fans buzzing.

However, the celebration of her success quickly turned into speculation about the methods behind her dramatic weight loss.

The cover features Rhimes donning a chic all-black jumpsuit with a pearl belt, showcasing her stunning transformation. While admirers flooded social media with praises for her new look, some couldn’t help but wonder if there was more to the story.

Social media erupted with comments suggesting that Rhimes might have turned to weight loss drugs, particularly Ozempic, to achieve her remarkable results.

References to the drug peppered platforms like X, with users jokingly attributing her transformation to the influence of media mogul Oprah Winfrey or the alleged magic of Ozempic.

“Oprah talked her into it,” the person said.

Another person commented with excitement, “Yes! Shonda & that weight loss!”

Meanwhile, others began speculating on how she got in shape.

“Ozempy down. IKTR Shonda,” one person wrote on X.

Another person claimed, “Ozempic worked wonders on Shonda.”

Rhimes has previously shared her weight loss journey, attributing her success to a lifestyle overhaul that included dietary changes and exercise. In 2015, she embarked on a journey to prioritize her health, shedding over 117 pounds. By 2017, she had lost close to 150 pounds, documenting her journey in her Shondaland newsletter.

“I just decided I was gonna get it together and get healthy. I have some little kids, and I want to be around for them,” the 54-year-old mother of three girls told Extra.

She added:

“I changed everything I ate — and I hated all of that — and then I hate exercising, and I did that too, and I hated it the whole time.”

However, amidst the admiration for her perseverance, questions about the involvement of weight loss drugs like Ozempic persist.

Rhimes joins a list of celebrities, including Busta Rhymes and Oprah Winfrey, who have faced similar speculation regarding their weight loss methods.

Rhimes has not publicly addressed the recent rumors surrounding her weight loss.
