Ah, the perks of being a reality star. You get to go on decadent vacations, eat at famous restaurants, walk the red carpet at special events. Apparently, even plastic surgery can be covered by the network your show is on, as evidenced by Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards’ nose job, which was paid for by Bravo.
47-year old Kim Richards went for a nose surgery to correct a small imperfection on her nose that had been bothering her and allowed Bravo’s cameras to follow her during the surgery and the consequential nose job recovery and celebratory party.
Kim is no stranger to plastic surgery. Like many of the other housewives, she has breast implants and also took advantage of treatments by costar Dr. Paul Nassif, although he apparently did not perform her nose job (See Make Me Heal’s story on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills plastic surgeries).
According to Radar Online, Kim’s new nose was paid for by Bravo, and the network also wrote the storyline. Kim isn’t as wealthy as the other housewives and probably wouldn’t be able to take on the cost of plastic surgery on her own.
“Kim doesn’t have an assistant or a houseman, she can’t afford that, let alone plastic surgery,” the source says. “So the story line was created for her and Bravo footed the bill.”
“She went to the same doctor that did Kyle’s oldest daughter Farrah’s nose job, she recommended him to Kim!”
