It’s been just over a year since Farrah Fawcett passed away and her longtime boyfriend, troubled actor Ryan O’Neal has apparently gotten close with her former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs. This unlikely couple may have more in common than just Farrah, they may also share some plastic surgery secrets.
According to the National Enquirer, “Nearly a year after the death of his longtime love Farrah Fawcett, Ryan O’Neal is writing a new “Love Story” with former model Cheryl Tiegs. The friendship between Ryan, 69, and Cheryl, 62, has blossomed into romance since they ran into one another at Farrah Fawcett’s funeral last June, The Enquirer has learned.”
“Around the time of Farrah’s passing, Cheryl had just broken off a 7-year relationship with world explorer and endurance bicyclist Dan Buettner. During the funeral service for the “Charlie’s Angels” star and for months afterward, Cheryl comforted grieving Ryan, who had been with Farrah more than 20 years before she died of cancer. Over the last year, the friendship betweent the “Sports Illustrated” model and the star of “Love Story” grew into a “full-blown love affair,” says a source.”
“The pair came as a couple to the book-signing party for Raquel Welch’s new memoir, “Beyond the Cleavage,” which was hosted by Alana Stewart at Oscar de la Renta’s boutique in West Hollywood on May 6. A beaming Ryan asked a columnist who was in attendance: “Are you going to mention us as an item?”
“He had his arm around Cheryl’s waist and it was clear that they were very happy together.”
Makemeheal.com thinks that some new plastic surgery could help Ryan and Cheryl get a new lease on a new relationship. While neither one currently looks to be suffering from too much plastic surgery, although Cheryl may have overdosed on fillers at one time (See Make Me Heal’s story on Cheryl Tiegs’ plastic surgery), they could do with matching facelifts and eyelifts to help brighten them up.
Manhattan Plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “From the photos, it appears that Cheryl Tiegs may have had dermal fillers in her nasolabial crease and her cheeks. She would benefit from an upper eyelid lift. Ryan O’Neal does not look like he has had any invasive plastic surgery. However, he would benefit from a neck lift and upper eyelid lift.”
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “I don’t think either of them have had any plastic surgery. Both would strongly benefit from a Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and facelift to rejuvenate their looks.”
Dr. Paul A. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Cheryl Tiegs may have had a facelift, fillers, and Botox. She may have had lip augmentation as well. The work appears a bit aggressive, and she would not benefit from any additional work at this time. Ryan O’Neal does not appear to have had any work performed. There is a possibility of fillers and Botox, but that is about all.”
Whether or not they go under the knife, they should certainly go to counseling, giving Ryan’s shaky past with women.
