Crystal Kung Minkoff Considered Ozempic During Eating Disorder Recovery: I Checked Myself

The challenges Crystal Kung Minkoff has with an eating issue are being spoken about openly.

Even though there were many chuckles, it raises awareness, which is ultimately what they are after, and I think it’s fantastic. The TV star spoke out about her battles with disordered eating to her RHOBH co-stars during the last season, saying to in August, “I was never going to deep dive into it. It was intense, yet I managed to speak about it without getting choked up.

If you don’t have an eating disorder, it’s difficult to comprehend one, she added. It is intricate and subtle, and every individual’s experience is unique. “I’ve been in therapy since I was 11,” Kung Minkoff continued. It drains your mental energy.
