Jax Taylor, a controversial character from Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Lisa Vanderpump’s spinoff reality show, Vanderpump Rules underwent a nose job earlier this year. The reality star is now showing it off on the current season, but not all of his costars are as impressed with the procedure as he is.
Earlier in the year, it was reported that Jax Taylor was undergoing a nose job out of medical necessity due to a deviated septum—a rampant problem in Hollywood. The consultation and procedure was filmed for the series with costars Scheana Marie, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz offering up cookies and care afterward. However, Jax does notice that one member of the cast is absent from his plastic surgery aftercare festivities: Katie.
However, a deviated septum is the oldest excuse in the world for a nose job and although it may correct breathing issues, it doesn’t change the outward appearance of the nose. Yet now, Jax is happy with his nose because it is straighter.
Makemeheal.com isn’t the only one doubting Jax’s need for a new nose. Bloggers and Jax’s costars are also wondering about Jax’s trip under the knife.
During Bravo master’s Andy Cohen’s late-night talk show, Watch What Happens Live, a fan asked Scheana and Kristen what they thought about Jax’s nose job.
Scheana looked nervous as she gulped before finally coming out with, “No, he had really bad allergies.”
When Andy questioned her on that, Scheana laughed, revealing her own doubts.
Kristen was a little more open about her doubts, saying, “He probably had a hole in his nose, yeah.”
Jax may be the first cast member to undergo plastic surgery on camera, but he is certaintly in good company. As all cast members are obsessed with perfect looks and bodies, it is quite likely that Jax isn’t the only person to change up his nose. Some of the female members likely have had breast augmentation, including ringleader Lisa Vanderpump.
Lisa Vanderpump admitted in her book out a couple of years ago that part of the reason she looks great past 50 is due to getting Botox and Juvederm injections, and she has probably had a breast augmentation as well.
And Jax’s story about why he heeded a nose job is amongst the oldest tales in Hollywood.
Ashley Tisdale famously admitted to undergoing a nose job after leaving the world of High School Musical for more grown up acting jobs.
At the time, then 22-year old Ashley said, “Growing up I always knew I had a deviated septum on the right side of my nose, which caused trouble breathing,” Tisdale told People on Monday from her Los Angeles home.
“The older I got, the worse it got. I went to get it checked out, and the doctor told me the septum was 80 percent deviated and that I had two small fractures on my nose.”
Tisdale vehemently denies having gotten the surgery for cosmetic reasons and says that she is not a supporter of plastic surgery.
“I didn’t do this because I believe in plastic surgery. I did this to help my health. I literally almost could not breathe out of the right side of my nose,” said Tisdale.
“I want my fans to know the truth. I’m not someone who is going to act like I had nothing done. I just want to be honest because my fans are everything to me.”none
