Kerry Campbell, aka “Botox Mom,” has been all over the news for reportedly bragging to Good Morning America that she injects her 8-year old daughter with Botox in order to win beauty pageants. Now the sad saga seems to be drawing to a close as Botox Mom has admitted that the whole thing was a farce and she was paid to make her claims.
34-year old Kerry shocked the world by seemingly injecting her child with Botox in order to win beauty pageants. An esthetician, she refused to say where she got the Botox from and eventually protective services were called to study the case. Now Kerry has revealed that the whole thing was a hoax, and she was paid to make her claims.
According to TMZ:
” TMZ has obtained a sworn declaration written by Sheena Upton, who claims she was recently approached by the British tabloid, The Sun, and asked “to play the role of Kerry Campbell” for a story called “I Give My 8-Year-Old Daughter Botox.” Upton now confesses The Sun paid her $200 adding, “I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview.” After the story ran in The Sun, Upton says she was approached by “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition” and claims she was offered “a large fee” to appear on camera. She went on both shows and re-told her story. After the interview, child welfare officials took Upton’s daughter away.”
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia writes, ” We have discussed Kerry Campbell: “The Botox Mom,” when the story broke. The saga just keeps sprouting new roots however… ”
“At present Ms Upton (apparently “Kerry Campbell” was an alias) claims to have been paid by The Sun to act the part of the Botox Mom. Of course most recently the State stepped in to take her child from her. I also heard that she obtained a doctor to certify that her daughter had never been injected with Botox although I am not certain that can be done reliably. The lady is a liar one way or another. I don’t buy the “paid actor” role when you go on Good Morning America and tell a “Fantasy Island” story.”
“While the present rendition of the story could be true, it is a sad day when we must consider that a newspaper (even a tabloid) might actually pay a person and script a “made up” story.”
“Maybe I am not yet jaded?”
“P.S. I have seen the supposed lip injection images at TMZ. I think they are staged. There is no swelling at the injection site. That doesn’t mean she didn’t inject her daughter with lip fillers.”
Botox injections should only be done by a medical professional, and only with Botox, not a knock-off. After injections, there is often swelling at the injection site, which can be helped with cold compresses.
The whole story behind Botox mom seems yet unfinished and Makemeheal.com looks forward to seeing how it all turns out.
