*TV mogul Oprah Winfrey is preparing to address a significant issue in America in her upcoming TV special … namely, the impact prescription weight loss drugs are having on society, including herself.

Winfrey states she will discuss medications and their relation to the weight loss revolution in her new ABC primetime special, “An Oprah Special: Shame, Blame and the Weight Loss Revolution” — scheduled to air in a couple of weeks.

Oprah’s special follows shortly after her separation from WeightWatchers, ending a nearly 10-year partnership, amidst criticism for openly admitting her use of a weight loss drug.

As previously reported … Winfrey acknowledges dropping 40 pounds last year, with the assistance of doctor-prescribed medication, although she has not disclosed the drug’s name.

Recall, Oprah’s use of weight loss drugs stirred controversy as she had previously criticized medications like Ozempic and Mounjaro as an “easy way out” — yet, she later began taking them … although it’s uncertain which drug she is using.

The TV special will examine questions and concerns about weight loss medications’ intended uses, side effects, and their impacts on people living with obesity and diabetes.

In a statement introducing the special, Winfrey remarks … “It is a very personal topic for me and for the hundreds of millions of people impacted around the globe who have for years struggled with weight and obesity.”

She adds … “This special will bring together medical experts, leaders in the space, and people in the day-to-day struggle to discuss health equity and obesity with the intention to ultimately release the shame, judgment, and stigma surrounding weight.”

Look for the special to air on March 18 at 8/7c on ABC. It’ll be available will be available for streaming the next day on Hulu.
