Earlier in the week, Valerie Bertinelli was at the 27th Central California Women’s Conference, where the actress and former addict discussed things that concern women, including her publicized weight loss and plastic surgery.
The 54-year old Hot in Cleveland star was a keynote speaker on the event. This year’s theme was “Nurture You” and Valerie Bertinelli gave information on how to do that and her own personal struggles.
In the past, Valerie admitted that she has struggled with abusing food by eating too much and also overcame a cocaine addiction in her younger days. She also discussed her much publicized weight loss a few years ago and how she felt “guilty” and uncomfortable when she gained back some of the weight.
Earlier in the year, Valerie admitted to feeling bad about gaining weight when she broke her foot and couldn’t work out for a while.
“And then I thought, ‘Wait a minute. I broke my foot. Why do I feel so much shame?’ We need to take the shame out of it. We all need to give each other a break, especially women. Let’s leave each other alone.”
At the event, Valerie admitted that losing her addiction for food was harder than fighting her addiction to cocaine.
“I used food as a crutch, and I abused food in a way that I shouldn’t have,” she said. “[Drugs] wreaked havoc on [my body], because one day I’m eating a healthy meal and the next day I’m just putting a bunch of white powder up my nose.”
“I think more women need to be nice to each other,” said Valerie, at the event. “We have bad examples on television of the ‘Real Housewives’ of whatever town they’re in. I would never want to have those people as friends. I want someone who supports me and backs me up and loves me.”
When the crowd was able to ask questions, Valerie took one about whether or not she has had plastic surgery. The actress said that she was apprehensive about procedures, but didn’t want to rule out going under the knife or needle down the line.
“Needles in the face and cutting is scary,” she said. “Never say never, but not yet.”
Back in 2009, Valerie lost almost 50 pounds with the help of the Jenny Craig program. She celebrated her success by appearing in a bikini in a series of commercials that chronicled her progress. Some thought that her new look meant that she would turn to plastic surgery to ensure that her face matched her body.
However, Valerie looks like she is aging naturally and that losing weight also helped her appear younger, without needing Botox. Even if she has gained back some weight, Valerie looks like she is still eating right and living a happy life, so her frown lines aren’t visible with a smile.
If Valerie did decide to enhance her naturally youthful appearance, she would likely start with just a touch of Botox or maybe opt for a blepharoplasty to improve her heavy eyelids, like costar Betty White.none
32-year old Chloe Sims has been sporting hair extensions since she was 25. She has also had plastic surgery more than a few times, including having breast implants placed twice and a butt lift, not to mention having Botox injections to help soften her jaw line as well as lip fillers. So it was with some surprise that the reality star and former Playboy bunny decided to give up her Botox injections and hair extensions to show off her natural beauty. Or as a natural as the TOWIE star gets.
Wearing minimal makeup and lighter locks that didn’t have the heavy weight of extensions, Chloe said that she actually liked her new look.
“I really like it! I’ll admit I was nervous but I’ve been thinking of cutting my hair for a while. My dark hair and eyebrows looked quite harsh, so I lightened my hair to soften it.”
In an interview Chloe dished that she liked her make-under so much that she was considering appearing on TOWIE without getting Botox injections for the season.
“Then I thought: “Let’s do a series of TOWIE with no Botox so everyone can see what I really look like.”
“There’s not much difference in it – I just have a bit more movement in my forehead. I wondered if the snide comments that people make would stop, but they didn’t really.”
Chloe is referring to the Botox injections she got in response to people who criticized her strong jaw. Rather than ignoring rude comments, Chloe tried to make herself more attractive by getting Botox injections on her jawline.
While Chloe may be laying off on Botox, she says that her boyfriend, Elliott Wright, has used the injectable.
According to Chloe, Elliott uses Botox as a way to look better on camera even though his girlfriend doesn’t approve of the results that Botox have on men.
She explains, “He’s had a little bit. Botox isn’t that attractive in men, but I can understand it – Elliott was new to television and you do start looking at your features and wondering what to change, but I’ve told him not to ever have it again.”
“I’d rather have a man with character in his face rather than date a pretty boy with cosmetic surgery. While he’s with me he won’t be having any more of those things done.”
It sounds as though Chloe may be giving up on plastic surgery after years of procedures that haven’t made the mother of one any happier.
In the past, Chloe has revealed that she has always been insecure about her face, although she loves the results of her breast augmentation and buttocks lift. Comments about Chloe being ugly actually made her turn to Botox injections to help soften her look although she has adamantly denied having any invasive procedures, including a facelift, done.
“I’ve always been insecure about my face, but reading that you’re ugly just makes it worse.”
Abbey Clancy is a British model, better known for being married to footballer Peter Crouch and her appearances on reality TV shows, including Britain’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2 and series 11 of Strictly Come Dancing in 2013. As a model and WAG, Abbey has been facing down rumors of plastic surgery since the beginning of her career. Now it seems that she has had a botched breast augmentation that has left her with mismatched breasts.
28-year old Abigail Clancy has been modeling since she was 18 and over the years has had faced a lot of rumors of plastic surgery as her weight fluctuates due to becoming a mother. Recently stepped out in a very sheer and very revealing shawl style maxi dress and no undergarments. It looks like it must have been a chilly day as Abby’s bust was clearly defined and clearly on display, showcasing the fact that her breasts are not completely symmetrical and leading to rumors that her breast implants are “running away from each other.”
While a bad breast augmentation can look like the breasts are headed in different directions and will never meet up in the middle, it seems unlikely in Abbey’s case. Abbey has said that she hasn’t had a breast reduction because her breasts were never large enough to need reducing, “I wish me boobs were big enough to get a boob reduction.”
Many women have asymmetrical breasts, with one being larger than the other or one hanging lower than the other. This looks to be the case with Abbey. As a lingerie model, she can usually hide any differences with the use of padding and wires, but without any support, her natural breasts are inclined to fall where they may.
In addition to a breast augmentation and breast reduction in the past, Abbey is also thought to have had a lip augmentation. Afew years back, Abbey also appeared to have very full lips, which were thought to be the results of lip augmentations. Again, as lip injections can be temporary when a filler like Juvederm is used, it is possible that Abbey tried the filler in the past but has since stopped using it and returned to her own natural lip shape. It is also possible that a shiny gloss or temporary superficial lip plumper was used by Abbey or her makeup artist, giving the appearance of having had some kind of plastic surgery lip augmentation.
However, Abbey has routinely denied having any plastic surgery at all—even dental veneers.
“Bloody hell. I haven’t had a boob job, I haven’t had veneers, I haven’t had Botox.”
And while magazines keep careful tabs on Abbey’s appearance, they forget that looking differently can also be a sign of aging naturally. After all, not many people look the same at 18 as they do at 28. And Abbey has acknowledged that motherhood has taken a toll on her body.
But if Abbey wants to avoid further rumors, maybe wearing less revealing clothing and more underwear would be a good place to start.none
Actress Jane Fonda is no stranger to showing off her amazing body. Even at the age of 76, the woman is able to steal the spotlight from her younger colleagues. But in her new film, This is Where I Leave You, she shows off more skin than usual thanks to her “bionic breasts.” And although Jane is no stranger to plastic surgery, for this role she relied on Hollywood magic, not plastic surgery to add some cleavage.
76-year old Jane Fonda has been dubbed a “Glamorous Grandma” thanks to her stunning figure and her constant maintenance that prevents her from looking anywhere near her chronological age.
In her new film, Jane plays an outlandish version of herself as the mother of grown kids and a recent widow. In one scene, as Jane is tucking in one of her kids, her robe pops open to reveal what looks to be a plastic surgery breast augmentation—leading her grown son to dub them “bionic breasts.” Although they look fake enough to be real implants, they are actually a prosthetic that Jane wears for the film that were put on the actress each day of filming.
Jane plays the mother of grown children Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, who have returned home for their father’s funeral.
Jason asks, “What’s different about her?”
To which Tina answers, “The boobs. She got a little touch up.”
Although the touch up is only for the movie, in real life Jane has admitted to having a few plastic surgery tweaks here and there.
In an interview on TODAY, Jane discussed her decision to go under the knife with Matt Lauer.
“I thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s me,’” said Jane. “I feel so great and so rested and I look so different and I just decided — and I’m not proud of it — I decided I wanted to look more like how I feel.”
“I just decided I wanted to buy myself some time and look more like how I feel,” said Jane.
Jane definitely looks better and not at all overdone since getting an eyelift and tightening the area around her neck. While immediately after the procedures she wore turtlenecks and sunglasses to cover up, she has since been sporting plunging necklines on red carpets that show off her tightened jaw and beautiful décolletage.
Although Jane struggled with her decision to get plastic surgery, her results were excellent. And while she may not have gone under the knife for her new film role, other actresses have found that playing women with breast augmentation has encouraged them to go under the knife in real life.
Anna Farris decided to get breast implants after sporting push up bras to augment her cleavage in The House Bunny.
Jane looks stunning and her breasts have become the topic of conversation for much of the film’s press tour.
The View is ready to make a comeback for a new season and almost entirely new hosts. Returning is Whoopi Goldberg and her new co-hosts include Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace as well as the fiery Rosie O’Donnell. The View always gets a lot of attention for showcasing different points of view and stirring up controversy for those that disagree with the ladies and their bold statements. It looks while the women all have experience in the entertainment field, they all have different view points when it comes to aging and whether or not plastic surgery is part of their game plan.
Rosie Perez, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie O’Donnell are joining The View as Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and the show’s creator Barbara Walters exit. The View’s predessors are well-known for using plastic surgery in one capacity or another: Jenny McCarthy first got breast implants as a young Playboy Playmate and more recently has become an advocate of the anti aging injectable Botox while Sherri Shepherd may have had a tummy tuck after losing a lot of weight and Barbara Walters appears to have had at least one facelift in her lengthy on camera celebrity journalism career. So what about the new ladies?
Rosie Perez is now 50 years old and looks much the same as she did when she was a hopeful young actress close to 30 years ago. Rosie clearly takes good care of herself, eating right and exercising and in addition she may use plastic surgery on occasion as well. Because Rosie doesn’t look so different from her younger days, she probably hasn’t had any drastic work done. However, some of the wrinkles on her face tend to disappear from time to time, so she may use Botox injections. She may also use Botox injections to prevent vertical lines on her neck as well but it doesn’t look as though Rosie has had a facelift at this time.
Nicolle Wallace is probably The View’s least known new member. The 42-year old has a career in politics and has been a supporter for George Bush and Sarah Palin. For a brief period of time, Nicolle has been an on air reporter but mostly stays behind the scenes. However, she may have had some minor plastic surgery touch ups, such as a laser treatment or chemical peel to look fresh and rejuvenated before joining The View.
Rosie O’Donnell is actually returning to The View after leaving the show for getting into a lot of drama with the former ladies. Rosie is now returning to the show in hopes of having a peaceful relationship with the other ladies and will also be a much a slimmer version of herself after revealing earlier this year that she has undergone weight loss surgery following a health scare. The 51-year old has not yet revealed if she plans to follow up the procedure with plastic surgery.
With all the speculation and turmoil caused by the turnover in casting, it will be interesting to see how this version of The View turns out.
Taraji P Henson is a great actress. After all, as E! reports, in 2009, Henson was nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In 2011, she earned an Emmy nomination for the title role in Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story. Yet the beauty vents to Ebony magazine that she is still treated “like I’m on the D-list.” Maybe she is hoping some plastic surgery will get her the credit she deserves?
44-year old Taraji P Henson may not feel like she gets enough credit as an outstanding actress but it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t expect to get recognized, and treated accordingly. In the interview with Ebony, that Taraji reveals that if she’s hungry enough, she will play the “do you know who I am card?” at restaurants.
Taraji proudly admits to using her celebrity status “to get my fat ass into a restaurant. If someone tells me there’s a wait, I’ll walk right to the front of the line like, ‘I need a table now. I need to eat, and I want this. So let’s work this out.’”
Despite her natural beauty, it seems that Taraji is not only insecure about her standing as an actress, but about her body as well.
Although Taraji looks like she works out and takes good care of herself, she tells Ebony that if she decides that she doesn’t like a body part a few years down the line, she’ll have no problem undergoing plastic surgery for a procedure such as liposuction or a tummy tuck. Taraji is drawing from her mother’s experience, who apparently underwent the procedure a few years back, to her great satisfaction.
When asked if she is insecure about a body part, Taraji answered, “My stomach. I get it from my mom, who had to get a tummy tuck because she didn’t exercise. I try to work out at least five days a week. But if it reaches the point where I am not satisfied, I’m just going to be like, “Can you suck this out of me? Thanks!””
Overall, Taraji has a very natural look, but there is some speculation that she may have small breast implants due to the very high and round appearance of her breasts in certain gowns. However, her breasts are not too large for her frame, so it may just be clever undergarments that boost Taraji’s cleavage on the red carpet.
Having very high brows is often a sign of Botox injections. However, it looks like Taraji just has naturally high and very arched brows. On occasion, she may use a touch of Botox in the “11” space between her brows as that area is sometimes more wrinkle-free than others. It is difficult to say for certain and if she does use Botox to get rid of wrinkles, she is very careful to make sure that she still retains a natural appearance.
Overall, Taraji looks great and hopefully will one day get the credit she feels she deserves.none
Helen Mirren may be in her sunset years, but you’d never know it. The 69-year old British actress has been having a resurgence in popularity the last few years, becoming known as one of the world’s most attractive women, giving crazy quotes and seemingly doing a lot more films in recent years. And apparently she’s not done yet. Perhaps in a bid to stay on top, Helen is said to be considering having plastic surgery “very soon.”
Although Helen Mirren’s recent popularity has been attributed to her personality and youthful outlook, many believe that Helen has already spent some time under the knife, including plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn.
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Youn writes, ” Helen Mirren is 66 and looks fabulous. She has SO had a facelift! It is extremely unusual for a woman her age to have a jawline as tight as she does. That’s the sign of a great facelift.”
However, Helen has never actually admitting to a facelift or any other procedure, limiting her opinion to plastic surgery to discussing other people and saying that young people have no need for any cosmetic procedures.
A few years back, Helen talked to InStyle magazin saying, “The only thing I don’t like on young people is plastic surgery.” The ‘State of Play’ actress had previously defended the right to have cosmetic surgery, saying she understood why people change their appearance. “You go, I don’t want to look at that face anymore and I understand completely, I think people should be allowed to do whatever they want to make themselves feel happy.” adding that she doesn’t understand why younger women would want to ruin the “purity” of the bodies.
In other interviews, Helen has said that she would consider plastic surgery as long as her results didn’t make her look “ridiculous.”
She told Woman’s Own: “I think about all those women you see with duck or fish lips and you don’t ever want to look like that. But I wouldn’t rule it out. People have the freedom to do what makes them happy.
“It’s sad when people destroy their faces with too much work but there are also many people who have had success with cosmetic surgery. If you can look in the mirror and feel good about yourself, even when you have these ridiculous lips, why not?”
However, new rumors indicate that Helen has either changed her mind about going for some nips and tucks herself or she is going back for more—depending on which stories you believe.
In another recent interview, The Daily Express quotes Helen as revealing that she occasionally does Pilates to stay in shape and may be plotting to go under the knife in the very near future.
“I don’t do much of anything,” she said.
“I’ve done about three Pilates classes, and it was great. I should do more.”
And when asked about whether she would be having plastic surgery to combat aging, she answered, “Very soon, I think. Very, very soon. Watch out!”none
Fashion designer Carolina Herrera is famous for her impeccable taste and style and her lengthy history of having a celebrity clientele, from Jackie Kennedy Onassis to Renee Zellweger. It seems that in addition to sharing secrets of amazing style with the stars, Carolina also shares some beauty secrets, including plastic surgery.
75-year old Carolina Herrera has received many accolades over the years, including recently being honored with the 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. Throughout her nearly 40-year long career Carolina always looks beautiful and refreshed and it seems that plastic surgery may be her secret.
Back in 2010, Carolina revealed many of her beauty secrets, including staying hydrated and wearing sunscreen.
According to Carolina, her daily beauty routine includes, “The most important thing I do is drink lots of water. I wash my face with Universal Anti-Aging Cleanser by New York dermatologist Dr Patricia Wexler – I love her products as they are so light on my skin. I then use Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream, Sally Hansen Your Skin Makeup Foundation, Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Smoky Eyes, Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara and Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Plum Berry.”
And if she got trapped on a dessert island, she would try to avoid the sun and wear sunscreen, “I would sit under an umbrella wearing a panama hat and dark glasses, covered in Bain de Soleil sunscreen – it’s so important to protect your skin.”
However, when it comes to plastic surgery, Carolina confessed to a blelpharoplasty on her eyes, but says that she believes in parameters when it comes to going under the knife. Like her fashion style, Carolina says that restraint is key and plastic surgery should never look unnatural and that lip augmentation is too much.
“I’ve had work done on my eyes in the past. However, I think there are limits. I wouldn’t ever have too much done as it looks unnatural, and I don’t think you should do anything to your lips as it changes the entire shape of your face.”
Carolina admits that celebrity dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler is on her speed dial but she didn’t mention her plastic surgeon’s name. However, it is rumored that New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell Aston counts Carolina amongst his celebrity clientele.
Dr. Aston is renowned for his facelift procedures, which produce natural-looking results. Carolina may not have yet had a facelift in 2010, but recent photos of her at fashion week show that although she does have signs of aging that befit a woman her age, she doesn’t have especially loose jowls or sagging skin on her face. Either Dr. Wexler is working wonders with chemical peels and non-invasive cosmetic procedures or Carolina may have opted for a facelift to help tighten up any sags and deep wrinkles. When it comes to clothing, Carolina insists on being wrinkle-free and it seems she may feel similarly about her appearance.
Carolina looks amazing and clearly takes good care of herself; even though she occasionally indulges in grilled cheese sandwiches and fries.none
Don’t you hate it when your mom inadvertently reveals some embarrassing childhood anecdote in front of your friends? Celebrity Big Brother 2014 star George Gibey can likely relate. The star that shot to fame on Gogglebox, along with his mother, Linda McGarry was probably floored when she revealed that George had undergone plastic surgery as a kid.
George Gibey looks to be the least likely suspect to have plastic surgery in a house filled with stars sporting everything from breast implants to facial fillers. Yet apparently George was bullied so much as a kid that he went under the knife to get rid of the mole under his nose that made him a target for the other kids. So while George may not look it, he was actually very young for his first experience with plastic surgery.
Linda explains, “He was bullied when he was little. He had a mole which appeared out of nowhere – I thought he had his dinner around his mouth! He had plastic surgery to get it removed when he was seven because people called him ‘Moley.’ He’s got a scar under his nose.”
And Linda says that although she is no longer George’s Gogglebox costar, she holds no hard feelings, telling Ok! Magazine, “I’m fine. This was George’s big break.”
George does have a slight scar under his nose where he has a hairless patch in his mustache. If George is clean shaven, the scar is likely less noticeable and because it has been so long since the procedure, it has probably healed nicely.
Celebrity Big Brother stars are known for their adventures in plastic surgery. Angelique Morgan, better known as Frenchy has already been kicked out of the house, but not before showing off her assets. The adult film actress is no stranger to reality show competitions and has showcased her duck lips, likely the result of silicone injections and supersized breast implants on other reality shows in the past, including Rock of Love and its spinoffs as well as I Love Money.
According to Frenchy, while in the Celebrity Big Brother House, she had a fling with Lauren Goodger, another augmented member of the cast. Lauren rose to fame on The Only Way is Essex, affectionately known as TOWIE and was open about having a $10,000 breast augmentation so that her bust remained full and large no matter how much her weight fluctuates.
George is in good company not only with his fellow castmates but also with other male celebrities who have had moles removed from their faces—although not as a result of childhood bullying.
Crooner Enrique Iglesias was well known for a mole on his cheek but had it removed. It didn’t interfere with his looks and was probably due to fears about skin cancer development.
Scottish star Ewan MacGregor had moles removed from his forehead for similar reasons, largely that he didn’t want them to become problems as skin cancer is becoming a growing concern.
The next season of competition for the mirror ball trophy is getting ready to begin and with it, the stars that will be competing on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. From the web to sports and faces of screens large and small, here’s a look at the celebrities in the running and their possible plastic surgery.
42-year old Alfonso Ribeiro is best known for his role as the annoying Carlton on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Although the actor doesn’t have a long resume, he does have a history of dancing—remember “The Carlton?” In any case, Alfonso looks to be aging well, without plastic surgery.
Antonio Sabato Jr.
42-year Antonio Sabato Jr. is probably very familiar with the world of plastic surgery as a soap star and model. However, this hunk doesn’t look like he has spent much time under the knife, unless it was for a nose job early in his career. Other than some possible laser treatments or chemical peels and maybe a hint of Botox in his forehead, Antonio looks to be aging naturally.
72-year old fashion designer Betsey Johnson has been wowing fans with her famous cartwheels at the end of her runway shows. Her youthful appearance likely comes courtesy of not only her famous bleached hair, but also some Botox and fillers and maybe even a facelift a few years back. And of course, her bubbling personality and pink aesthetic.
25-year old Janel Parrish probably hasn’t had any plastic surgery in her young life. Instead her naturally full lips seem to be all the casting help she needs. But the Pretty Little Liars star does have her share of tattoos, some of which she may no longer want as she ages. If Janel changes her mind about her ink, she may find herself exploring laser tattoo removal as an option.
32-year old Lolo Jones uses her experience as a professional athlete to look fit and fierce. If she did spend time under the knife, it would probably be for reconstructive surgery as a result of her occupation rather than elective treatments.
76-year old comedian and actor Tommy Chong looks to be aging naturally, with nothing more than some possible whitening treatments to brighten his smile.
18-year old Bethany Mota is a YouTube personality who seems to love transforming herself with makeup and hairstyles rather than surgical procedures.
33-year old Jonathan Bennett played hot guy Aaron Samuels in Mean Girl and looks to be aging naturally. Although he has said that he is no stranger to bullying. Probably not about his looks though.
51-year old race car driver Michael Waltrip seems to be speeding through life without a visit to the plastic surgeon.
51-year old actor and UFC champ Randy Couture probably hasn’t paid a visit to the plastic surgeon. Unless it was for some stitches or necessary procedure after a bad bout in the ring.
17-year old Duck Dynasty star is too young for plastic surgery right now. However, some of the older women in her family look to use Botox, so she may follow in their footsteps in the next 10 years or so.
49-year old radio and TV host has a face for radio, but it doesn’t look like he’s gone under the knife to do anything about it.
53-year old actress Lea Thompson looks like she must have a time machine because she looks as good as she did in Back to the Future, back in the day. However, the actress insists that her beauty routine is basic and natural and doesn’t even use glycolic acid peels on her sensitive skin.none
