Vladimir Putin has had a troubling year! In between the stress of hosting the Sochi Winter Olympics and invading Ukraine, Russia’s grey cardinal just hasn’t been looking quite so fresh! In a recent press conference where he addressed the Malaysia Airlines tragedy, the Russian Prime Minister shocked everyone with his haggard old man appearance. Looking wrinkled beyond his 61 years of age, with bags under his eyes, many people wondered if Putin had slept in weeks!
Fortunately for the hawkish Putin, plastic surgery always seems to be an option. Make Me Heal has suspected Putin of going under the knife in the past. Back in 2011, Putin appeared at his presidential nomination event with his skin looking mysteriously smooth and taut, visibly free of wrinkles and eye-bags. Putin’s entire face was so distorted, in fact, that it looked like he was wearing a plastic mask!
Russia’s New Times Magazine was even forced to speculate about all of the work he’s had done in an article titled “What has happened with Putin’s face?”
Make Me Heal suspects that Vladimir Putin is a habitual Botox addict. Putin has showed up in various public meetings sporting massive black-and-yellow bruising around his eyes. This is a telltale sign of Botox overuse. In addition, Putin may have undergone a blepharoplasty eyelid lift and a possible facelift that have left him all but incapable of laughing, crying or making any sort of facial expressions at all.
Renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn agrees. He theorizes: “I previously suspected a possible eyelid lift and necklift.”
More recently, Putin stepped out in front of the limelight without his trademark crow’s feet around his eyes. It appears that Putin follows a plastic surgery pattern: Whenever he is feeling and looking stressed out, he quickly follows up with more plastic surgery.
Unfortunately for Putin, while his numerous plastic surgeries have left him without wrinkles and eyebags, going under the knife has given him an odd appearance. Too much Botox and too extreme of a facelift, combined with possible overuse of cheek fillers, have left him with an androgynous, womanly appearance. It’s not unusual for male Botox addicts to gain a more feminized appearance. Mickey Rourke and Bruce Jenner are two other 50+ male celebrities who’ve overdone the Botox and ended up looking a bit more girly.
While Make Me Heal recommends that Putin slow it down with the Botox, should the Russian leader continue his addiction, he should allow some time for recovery. Before stepping out into the Botox spotlight, Putin should consider using a filler recovery product such as VitaMedica Arnica Montana Injectables/Fillers Blister Pack. By taking just three tablets per day, three times per day, Putin could drastically reduce the post-treatment swelling that has plagued him in the past.
Putin’s penchant for going shirtless and sucking in his gut in public has also led many to wonder if this plastic surgery aficionado is considering a tummy tuck or possible liposuction.
While Putin has shown a love of non-invasive plastic surgery, no evidence yet exists that he’s had any form of weight-loss plastic surgery yet. Should Putin, however, decide to drop a few lean, mean pounds, he might consider using a non-plastic surgery option such as a male shapewear garment like Men’s Belly Buster Abdominal Binder. Such a garment provides maximum compression in the midsection reason, eliminating love handles and supporting your back.none

Every man loves full, luscious lips. Everyone from pin-ups like Marilyn Monroe to Jessica Rabbit seem to have that perfect pout.
Scientists have even found that the size of a woman’s lips play an important role in determining whether they are sexually attractive to a man or not. Essentially, bigger, fuller lips equals better. Women with fuller lips are often associated with sensuality and confidence.
Unfortunately, lip fillers are expensive and not everyone is blessed with the money to help achieve those plump, kissable lips. Many people suffer from overly-thin lips that give off a ghastly schoolmarm look ─ even celebrities! Read below to find out which Hollywood celebrities suffer from pursed, stern lips and what they can do to help fix their pout (and yours)!
Kirsten Dunst may be one of the hottest actresses of the millenial generation, but the Marie Antoinette starlet is also cursed by notoriously thin lips. The actress who has battled anorexia and other body issues in the past has gone on record to describe the challenges she has faced with finding the right lipstick or lip-gloss for her mouth.
However, rather than opt for expensive, invasive lip fillers, Kirsten Dunst may be better served by using a lip-plumping balm such as Dr. Lewinn Resculpt 3-D Lip Plumping Balm – SPF 15 (by Kinerase). This lip-plumping balm helps plump and improve lip contours and curves in as little as five minutes. By applying this sheer, glossy formula, lips are dramatically re-shaped on three dimensions: volume, surface area and curvature, lasting up to 20 hours!
Gwyneth Paltrow seems to have it all and she usually has no problem letting you know that! The Shakespeare In Love Oscar-winning actress is notorious about bragging about her lavish lifestyle and rock-star husband on her lifestyle website Goop. However, the daughter of actress Blythe Danner may be lacking in one area: her thin, lipless mouth!
Paltrow may have all the money in the world to pay for lip augmentation but the actress has gone on record to state that she is against invasive plastic surgery:
“And I still refuse to use silicone, Botox or other of those gimmicks out of pure vanity.”
Judging by the evidence that the actress has had a nose job, boob job and chin augmentation, Paltrow may be lying to save face. But nonetheless, should she decide not to go under the knife again, she may want to consider using a quick, lip-volumizing product such as Physicians Formula Plump Potion Needle-Free Lip Plumping Cocktail. Specially-formulated with a high-tech cocktail, this non-irritating lip-plumping lacquer helps transform lip’s appearance, contour, size and color so that they look and feel fuller, smoother and sexier.
Women aren’t the only ones who can suffer from unattractive vampire-thin lips. Men such as Twilight superstar Robert Pattinson may also from not having a kissable pout! Fortunately for Pattinson, his thin lips may not be keeping him from maintaining millions of screaming girl fans.
According to Seventeen Magazine, Robert Pattinson’s “thin lips” reveal him as “this mysterious guy [who] keeps his true self hidden.”
While this may or may not be true for a vampire, Pattinson may want to consider contouring his lips as he ages. According to Dr. D’Anne Kleinsmith, the older you get, the less collagen you produce and this keeps your lips from maintaining their youthful plumpness. The sun’s UV rays may expedite collagen breakdown and make lips appear thinner.
“One way to help preserve the fullness of your lips,” Dr. Kleinsmith states, “is to protect them from the sun by wearing a lipstick or lip balm with sunscreen.”
Should the on-screen vampire decide to brave the sunlight, Pattinson might want to consider applying a long-lasting lip treatment for men such as Menscience Advanced Lip Protection SPF 30. While most men may be against applying any sort of lip product, this lip-protection stick applies easily and offers no greasy residue the way lipstick or chapstick does. This way R-Pat can protect and plump his lips without having to turn in his man-card!
Lips are important. We eat, kiss and talk with them and nobody wants thin, unattractive lips. Fortunately, with some of the inexpensive, easy-to-use products such as above, we can help make our lips kissably pouty and plump.none
Think Tamra Barney is smiling a little differently these days? The newlywed gym bunny may have tried to play coy, but as fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County know, the blonde isn’t the world’s best liar and has admitted to getting facial fillers.
46-year old Tamra Barney may be looking her best yet, but she is looking a little more squinty than usual. No, she doesn’t need glasses, it seems that the fillers in her cheeks are making her eyes appear to be smaller.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, the blonde chatted it up with the host of the show, Andy Cohen.
Eventually, the host began taking viewer questions, including one that read “What all has Tamra Barney done to her face? Eyelift? Facelift? Her legs look great though,” and adding his own: “Have you done something to your face?”
At first Tamra, tried to deny doing anything to alter her appearance, responding with a straight faced, “Nothing. Zero.”
She even pinched her cheeks, as though to prove it.
The host continued to probe, saying, “I feel like I’m looking at some fillers.”
“Feel. I haven’t!” Tamra protested as she leaned forward to let Andy touch her face, which he politely declined to do.
Fellow guest Angela Kinsey chimed in: “Can you feel a filler? I don’t think you can.”
“I mean, come on, I’m honest,” Tamra continued with a telling giggle, her eyes disappearing into the sockets in the process thanks to her newly accentuated cheekbones.
“Oh my God! You have!” Andy exclaimed. “You’ve got fillers.”
“I don’t lie!” she chirped in a high-pitched voice, her ear-to-ear grin absolutely giving the game away.
“You have some stuff in your cheek, new stuff in your cheek. No?” Andy pushed as Tamra pawed at her face.
“Maybe just a little bit,” she finally admitted with a smirk.
Tamra may have tried to play coy in this instance, but in the past she has been very open about her efforts to look young, even going under the knife while filming on the show.
In Tamra’s first season on the show, she had supersized breast implants, which were apparently encouraged by her ex-husband Tamra Barney. In a later season, Tamra had her implants replaced with a smaller size, much to the dismay of Simon.
Finally, after ditching Simon, Tamra also ditched the breast implants altogether, writing in a Facebook post in 2012: “Removing my implants was a way of me taking back control of MY body physically and mentally. The best part of being in my 40s is that I started to feel more secure with myself and accepting of my body. I now work hard to keep myself healthy with diet and exercise. I love the way I look without my implants and do NOT miss them at all.”
Tamra now has a new husband with whom she co owns a gym and also dabbles in hormone replacement and Botox, along with fillers to stay looking her Orange County approved best.none
Kelly Ripa looks to have it all: a great job, handsome husband and a bunch of kids. So with everything going on in her life, plus the early mornings that are a requirement of her job it seems like something of a miracle that Kelly manages to appear open eyed and fresh faced on a regular basis. It turns out that Botox is responsible for Kelly’s look.
43-year old Kelly Ripa let viewers on her secret when she made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
“Botox. And that’s pretty much it. People are very ritualistic about their beauty routine. I am not. I’m not advocating one way or the other but I’m just saying Botox has changed my life. It’s cut my getting ready time in half…suddenly my eyelids are no longer resting on my eyelashes. I think the key with anything is knowing what you look like and being a minimalist.”
Kelly’s beauty routine is lengthy because of the time it takes to get her camera ready and she likes the Botox helps to shorten the process as her eyes already look more open and alert than needing heavy makeup contouring.
And while Kelly is clearly big on Botox, it sounds like she doesn’t like the results of fillers nearly as much. She told the host, “Your cheeks are not supposed to block out your eyes when you smile!”
It’s not the first time that Kelly had admitted to using Botox. In a candid interview with In Touch magazine, Kelly admitted that Botox injections are part of her beauty regimen.
“I work out every day. I don’t overeat. I try to drink water, but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead as much as possible!”
Kelly also admits that she knows she needs a touch-up when her kids can see she’s mad at them.
“It’s when my kids start asking me if I’m mad at them, and I say, “Why do you think I’m mad at you?” They say it’s because I’m frowning. I go, “Oh no! I am? I’ll be right back!”
While Kelly may consider her usage minimal, it actually looks pretty obvious to many viewers. Not only is Kelly’s forehead and brow region very smooth, it also has a sheen that is usually associated with Botox rather than the oily skin of youth.
And although Kelly is open to using Botox and clearly loves the results, she draws the line when it comes to invasive plastic surgery. After having three kids and breast feeding, many women opt for a breast lift and augmentation in order to restore lost volume and improve the appearance of their breasts, but apparently Kelly isn’t into it.
“I like to say I’m a 32A long,” Kelly, who swears by Victoria’s Secret bras, tells Life & Style. “I’ve added the long because I’ve nursed three kids.”
In the same interview with Life & Style, Kelly said she would never have a breast augmentation, “I would never have a boob job. I am too wimpy. Are you kidding? I am such a wimp!”
Katie Price knows a thing or two about plastic surgery, having been under the knife seemingly countless times herself. And despite having a few mishaps, she can still laugh at herself—and her scars.
Pregnant Katie Price talked about her plastic surgery procedures on Fubar radio with TV presenter and comedian Mark Dolan.
The conversation began as the cohosts discussed foot surgery, a new procedure in which women shorten the toes of their feet in order to better squeeze their tootsies into narrow designer footwear. The conversation moved on from there as Katie asked a plastic surgeon guest for advice on future procedures.
The plastic surgeon shared some of the mistakes women make by going under the knife with unrealistic expectations about reversing the effects of pregnancy on their body.
Katie joked, “Basically, if you want to look like a patchwork quilt, it’s out there.”
She added, “Cause I’ve got the scars. The caesarean scars… and obviously because I’ve gone up and down with my boobs I’ve got the keyhole scar.”
“Luckily it doesn’t bother me because I heal really well but people have got to remember that if you’re going to have a procedure, sometime it can go wrong and it will leave you with scars.”
Indeed, Katie likely has quite a few scars from plastic surgery. In the past, breast augmentations, several breast reductions as well as a nose job or two and vaginoplasty and Botox injections as well as collagen injections and lip enhancements. According to past reports in the British tabloid The Daily Mail, Katie has spent around $80,000 on cosmetic surgery, including four boob jobs, fillers, collagen and nose job, with another $40,000 on dental work. In the past, she also said that she would routinely fly from her home in London to Los Angeles in order to get Botox injections and hair extensions.
And despite it all, Katie continues to love plastic surgery, feeding speculation as to what she will do next and posting on her social media accounts when it is time for her next Botox injection.
Still, despite her overall confidence, Katie admitted on the show to feeling insecure about her body in its current state, even while flaunting her growing bump in crop tops.
The 36-year-old said on Loose Women: “I’m insecure at the moment because I’ve put on four stone… my husband cheated on me and I’ve got that into my head.”
“I’ve been pregnant the whole time that I’ve been with him. It’s my own fault,” she told the ladies, after giving birth to the couple’s first son Jett in August.
Fellow panellist Myleene Klass soon replied: “You’ve put on four stone because you’re pregnant. He cheated on you because he’s an idiot, not because you’re pregnant!”
Katie’s newest relationship appears to be messier than her notoriously bumpy past with numerous husbands and the resulting offspring. Still, despite speculation about an upcoming divorce, Katie has said that she would like to take her new husband’s last name, although that has yet to happen.none
Botched star Dr. Terry Dubrow Dishes on his Wife, Real Housewife of Orange County Star Heather Dubrow’s Plastic Surgery
It would seem that a plastic surgeon husband and an actress wife would have a perfect surgical relationship. But Botched star Dr. Terry Dubrow says that he would never operate on his wife, Real Housewife of Orange County star, Heather Dubrow. Although he does reveal that the actress does have the occasional non-surgical plastic surgery treatment.
Although many people would think that an actress married to a plastic surgeon would have her husband to thank for her high cheekbones and sculpted jaw, it apparently isn’t the case for the Dubrows. Heather Dubrow is apparently naturally blessed with sharp features and her husband sees no need to operate on his wife, despite her giving birth to their four kids.
Many women opt for breast augmentation after having kids to restore lost volume, Terry tells Rumorfix that Heather remains all natural.
The Doctor shares, “Those four children just sucked the life out of them. Her breasts are still good but they are slightly deflated, but equally attractive.”
He does say that the couple has thought about installing breast implants however, “We have talked about it. I don’t want my wife to have any plastic surgery – look at her, what would you do? My wife’s body is unbelievable, my wife is rarefied air… I told her, ‘They look good and you’re not bothered by them – we’re not doing it.’”
And he puts the kibosh on rumors that Heather has had any facial work done since starting her career and finally making a name for herself as a reality star.
“Compare her photos to college or when she was on Jenny in the ’90s.”
While Heather may workout for hours to get her body in shape without the benefit of plastic surgery, when it comes to her face, she is willing to dabble in some non invasive procedures. Under her husband’s supervision of course.
Heather has said that she does use a little Botox here and there and apparently it was Dr. Dubrow that got her started.
“She had this little wrinkle so I asked her ‘Does it bother you?’ She said ‘Yes’ so I started injecting her at 27. But she only does Botox once a year – its lasts forever on her.”
In the interview, Terry also revealed that his wife gets some fillers injected as well, including Sculptra.
Heather has tried to be a successful actress for years but seems to have finally found her niche by playing herself on a reality show. Oddly enough, it was apparently husband Terry who nudged her into it. Terry himself has appeared on numerous shows over the years, offering his expertise on plastic surgery. The cosmetic surgery guru is currently costarring on Botched with another former Real Housewife husband, Dr. Paul Nassif. Together the doctors meet and treat patients who have suffered from botched plastic surgery in the past and are looking to correct the results of past procedures.
Former X Factor judge Tulisa is stirring up new rumors of plastic surgery after appearing in public with a swollen-looking face, similar to how some people react to fillers. However the the former N-Dubz singer says that it’s a new makeup look not plastic surgery.
25-year old Tulisa has denied having plastic surgery in the past, when rumors sprang up that she had had a nose job and lip fillers. However she has said that it’s all cosmetic application and not plastic surgery that is responsible for her changing face.
And Tulisa has at least one supporter for her side of the story. The Daily Mail reports that celebrity make-up artist Mikey Phillips believes Tulisa’s dramatic new look could well be down to her new beauty regime.
Speaking about Tulisa’s face, which appeared slightly ‘pulled back’ and swollen a few weeks ago, he said: “Tulisa’s make-up has really changed since her early days.”
“Now she goes for a heavily contoured look to slim the face and add shape. She also contours her nose, which again slims and adds dimension.”
“How you contour your face can totally have a dramatic change to your face. Concealer can be used to lift and brighten and bronzer to shade and define.”
“Lip liner and lip plumping products could be responsible for the plumper pout but remember make-up is all smoke and mirrors.”
However, there does seem to be a difference in opinion amongst experts.
Annemarie Gillett, Non Surgical Director from Transform Cosmetic Surgery, isn’t convinced that the changes in Tulisa’s appearance are solely due to makeup application tricks.
She said: “Looking at the photos provided, Tulisa definitely looks like she has had some kind of temporary dermal filler to her lips and is a very popular treatment with women of Tulisa’s age. Tulisa’s lips looked thinner in earlier pictures.”
“The elongated and shiny forehead is a classic tell-tale sign of having injectable wrinkle treatment.”
“Her cheeks also look fuller than in earlier photographs.”
“Her skin looks quite taut and shiny which would suggest Tulisa has had regular facial peels/skin rejuvenation treatments.”
“It appears Tulisa has indulged in non-surgical treatments of late. However Tulisa is very young and less is more and I would encourage using less product and leaving more time in between treatments.”
Cosmetic and plastic surgeon, Paul Banwell FRCS (Plast) from the Banwell Clinic says: “I think Tulisa looks great but I can see the tell-tale signs of Botox, fillers in her lips and possibly in her cheeks too.”
“She looks like she’s lost a bit of weight in her face as well which has made her lips look more sensuous and striking.”
This isn’t the first time that Tulisa’s altered appearance has come under scrutiny. Late last year, Tulisa’s nose looked thinner and her lips looked larger, which the singer attributed to weight loss—including in her nose.
“I’m eight stone at the moment, but my weight always fluctuates between eight and nine stone,” Tulisa told The Mirror.
“It’s not a deliberate thing, and I really don’t give a toss about being skinny. That’s just not me. But when I lose weight it goes from my face, and everyone says my nose looks thinner.
“I swear on my life I’ve not had it done. I’ve literally just lost weight, and it goes from my nose!”
The stars of the hit reality show Pawn Stars focusing on a family owned Las Vegas pawn shop are not known for their svelte figures. But when Corey Harrison’s doctor put him on medication for diabetes, the young man considered it a wake up call and opted to have weight loss surgery to drop the pounds.
31-year old Corey Harrison says that at his peak weight, he was around 402 pounds. But in 2010 his doctor was putting him on preventative diabetes medication, he says he realized that he needed to do something.
“I literally drove straight from the doctor to the lap band center and had the surgery almost immediately,” Corey tells PEOPLE of his 2010 weight loss procedure. “Back then, the surgery was too expensive for my bank account, so I had to pay with four credit cards, but it was something I had to do – I was not going to get diabetes!”
After the procedure, Corey says he lost 50 pounds just in the first six weeks. And then another 100 pounds during the first year after lap band. After the pounds began to drop off, Corey says, “I could never go back to weighing as much as I did,” he says. “It made me realize what I ate, how I ate and what I did to myself. It was a WOW moment.”
192 pound lighter, Corey is continuing to having his lap band checked regularly and lives a much different lifestyle than he did prior to the procedure. In addition to the surgery, Corey also works out regularly and eats a protein heavy diet.
“I’m actually excited to go to the gym now. I box 12 rounds a day five days a week,” he says. “When I was a teenager I loved snowboarding, but in my 20s I was too big to strap my feet in the boards. Being able to finally touch my toes made me realize I could snowboard again, so I went out and got new gear immediately.”
Corey’s healthier outlook has spread in the shop. His best friend and costar, Austin “Chumlee” Russell has also been inspired to drop some excess baggage.
“It was time for me to get healthy,” says Chumlee. “I started at 320 lbs. and now I’m down to 225. When I first began, I eliminated all processed foods except mustard. Now, ‘everything in moderation’ is my motto.”
Fans can check out the duo’s weight loss on the spinoff show Pawnography on the history channel.
“When I meet fans, they are always congratulating me on the weight loss,” says Harrison. “They actually say, ‘You look just like that guy from Pawn Stars, but you are a lot skinnier and better looking than him.’ ” I say, ‘trust me, if I were going to pretend to be someone, it wouldn’t be that guy from Pawn Stars.’ ”
Kudos to the stars for taking their health seriously. Maybe their new outlook will spread to other castmembers including Rick and “the Old Man.”none
British reality show The Only Way is Essex, affectionately known as TOWIE is filled with beautiful people and surgical enhancements. The exception to the rule being Jasmin Walia. However in an interview Jasmin reveals that although she is a natural beauty, she would consider undergoing nose surgery as she is insecure about her nose. 23-year old TOWIE star Jasmin Walia may not have had plastic surgery like her costars, but she still holds her e. So it came as some surprise that despite her overall confidence and favoring clothing that shows off her hard body, she still has some insecurities about her looks. “I hate my nose,” she exclusively told OK! Online at the OK! World Cup Summer Barbecue. “No one has ever given me a hard time about it but I’ve always been a little insecure because of it. “I guess everyone has something they don’t like about themselves.” “I’m against surgery, I don’t believe in it,” she explained. However, despite her anti-plastic surgery stance, it sounds like she may be considering going under the knife if she thinks it will improve her own opinion of her nose. “The only thing I would consider getting done is a nose job. “When people ask me what I would get done I tell them I want a nose job – but that’s it.” Jasmin looks great and clearly takes care of herself with diet and exercise. She is also younger than some of her costars and probably doesn’t yet have a need for injectables like Botox or Dysport and has naturally full lips so doesn’t undergo minor procedures like lip fillers. Jasmin’s natural approach to beauty is a huge contrast to others who have appeared on the show. Amy Childs is the same age as Jasmin, but has been open about undergoing numerous plastic surgery procedures. So many, in fact, that she has dubbed herself a “freak” saying that she has overdone the surgical enhancements. She told the Daily Star she made “a big mistake and became addicted to cosmetic surgery.” She said, “I don’t want to look like a blow up doll anymore.” Amy has used lip fillers, but had a bad reaction, which left her lips lumpy and had the procedure reversed. In addition, Amy had breast implants placed when she was only 18 and now regrets the decision so much that she wants the legal age limit to be raised to 21. Like her lips, Amy’s breast augmentation did not go well, becoming damaged, and she ended up having emergency surgery to remove and then replace the implants to avoid being left with loose skin. Lauren Pope, another star of the show, has admitted to transforming her career over the years via plastic surgery, including undergoing a nose job, dental veneers and two breast augmentation procedures.none
Plastic surgery queen and daytime talk show host isn’t shy. So at a recent Vegas pool party, she joined other celebrities sporting swimwear, showing off the prominent tattoo that conceals her tummy tuck scar.
Wendy Williams is a plastic surgery queen, according to her own accounts, and she isn’t shy about showing off her purchases. Days away from turning the big 5-0, Wendy was at a Vegas pool party over the last weekend. The host of the “world’s largest bachelorette party” at Tao, Wendy posed wearing a skimpy bikini and a sarong style cover up that revealed her prominent tattoo over her lower stomach, the site of her tummy tuck scar.
In the past, Wendy has said that she is not a fan of tattoos in general and doesn’t even like the one that she sports on her own abdomen. However, it does serve the purpose of covering up the scar left by a tummy tuck procedure, which she says is better.
In a 2012 interview when she talked about posing nude for animal activist organization PETA, Wendy explained, “I got my tattoo to cover my tummy tuck mark.”
“I’m not really one that likes tattoos. I still stand by that. I don’t particularly like that one, but I’d rather have that than the cut [mark].”
Wendy had a tummy tuck six months after giving birth to her son, Kevin Jr., in 1999.
In addition to the tummy tuck, Wendy has also had breast augmentation as well as liposuction. She also regularly gets Botox and fillers to help ward off signs of aging.
Last year, she decided to lose about 20 pounds before turning 50 (and posing nude for PETA).
At the time, the host said, “It’s funny because I wasn’t a gorilla before. I lost maybe 20 pounds. I weigh 175. I told you when I got on the scales, it was 195 and then you know I was like ‘Ok I’ve got to get ready for my 50th birthday…’ Fifty, I can see that as one of those milestones that makes you want to jump off a building.”
While Wendy is always open about her plastic surgery, her outspokenness has gotten her into trouble on occasion.
In a past interview with xoJane.com, When asked about why she thinks people criticize her so much for getting plastic surgery, Wendy responded, “They are jealous. Because if I said to that person, ‘I got the doctor and I’m going to pay for it. Choose three things you want to do,’ believe me, they would get it done. They are very jealous and scared. Scared of what their other friends would say, or to break out of the box and be different. And being black? Ugh, please. My people will not go for any kind of surgery. We are supposed to be natural. Ugh, whatever.”
More recently, Wendy got into a celebrity battle with rapper Lil Kim, criticizing the scantily clad former stripper’s ever changing face and saying, “Kim, in my mind, I knew your goal was always to look like La Toya Jackson,” Williams said, adding, “You’ve out-La Toya’d La Toya in your new look. Don’t blame Photoshopping, blame your plastic surgeon, girl.”
