Funny woman Joan Rivers passed away earlier this week after being placed into a medically induced coma after suffering complications during a routine throat surgery. After the sad news was revealed, her fans and friends were quick to Tweet their shows of support, including her E! family and Fashion Police co-star, Kelly Osbourne.
After the news that 81-year old Joan Rives had passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones, fashion forward Kelly Osbourne took to Facebook to share her feelings.
Via The Daily Mail, Kelly wrote, “I’m completely heartbroken by the loss of my beloved Joan. Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew. She was family and I will never forget her.”
“Laughter will be difficult for a while but when I’m sad, lonely or upset all I will have to do is think of Joan and a smile will cross my face. Laughter is what she gave us and laughter is what she would want us to do in remembrance of her.”
29-year old Kelly is reportedly currently enjoying a hospital stay of her own, courtesy of pneumonia then reached out to Joan’s family, saying, “Melissa and Cooper, my thoughts are with you and I love you both so much. Joan, thank you for taking me in and loving me as a daughter. I will miss you deeply and will always hear your voice in my head saying ‘my darling get out there and be you!”
Other stars also took time to Tweet their love for Joan, including the proud to be natural and nude outspoken Lena Dunham.
After hearing of Joan’s passing, prolific Twitter user Lena took the opportunity to share her thoughts on social media.
“Watching Joan Rivers do standup at age 81 was incredible: athletic, jaw-dropping, terrifying, essential. It never stopped. Neither will she. I told Maron I’d have a zinger when Joan died. But I didn’t think she ever would. She felt eternal, and anyway, zingers are her territory.”
“That being said, Joan is gone but a piece of her lives on: her nose, because it is made of polyurethane.”
Lena’s efforts are humor, but Joan herself said it best when she used her famous self-deprecating humor to say, “I’ve had so much plastic surgery, when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware.”
Over the years, Joan became as well known for her plastic surgery as for her caustic wit, undergoing numerous procedures including numerous facelifts, a brow lift, cheek lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), Botox injections, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and breast augmentation, in addition to other procedures.
And while many tried, Joan always got the last laugh when it came to her own looks, capitalizing on her love of plastic surgery in her comedic routines and even writing a book advising others about the ups and downs of various plastic surgery procedures and recovery.
Joan made her mark on the world and will be missed greatly.
Renee Zellweger shot to fame as Jerry Maguire’s over animated assistant and stunned fans when she ballooned up for the title role in Bridget Jones’ Diary, not once but twice. Since then she’s done many more films but fans have really become more concerned about her appearance than her acting roles. From dropping lots of weight to looking unable to move her face and open her eyes, Renee has sparked comments and concern. Now it seems that the actress may have taken note and begun to ease up on the temporary fillers that drastically changed her looks.
45-year old Renee Zellweger made a rare red carpet appearance, stepping out for the annual benefit luncheon for the Couture Council to honor her friend and fashion designer Carolina Herrera. Sporting a chic red dress with full short sleeves, Renee wore her hair in a messy topknot with tendrils falling into her face. But most remarkably, her eyes looked wide open so that you could see their beautiful blue hue and her forehead actually showed a few wrinkles, making the star look much better than she did last year.
At a film screening last year, Renee sparked concern when she showed up at an event with a super smooth and shiny forehead, which looked to be the result of very over zealous Botox use. The past few years, Renee has also become known for having squinty eyes. While some suspected that a facelift or other drastic plastic surgery had caused Renee’s eyes to close up, it seems more likely that she had simply gone overboard on fillers such as Juvederm in her cheeks. Now it seems that the results have worn off.
It looks like Renee has definitely eased up on plastic surgery and is going for a much more natural look as her face shows expression and movement. Injectable fillers and Botox are temporary but take months to wear off and Renee seemed to be getting the injections performed regularly so they have taken a while.
Renee appears to have exceptionally oily skin for a woman her age, which is part of the reason she appears so youthful. However when the oil is caught on camera with a flash light, it is possible that the image could be mistaken for Botox as her forehead then appears to be completely smooth and shiny.
Although Renee looks much more natural and relaxed than she has during her past few appearances, her hair did appear to be a little too fly away for the occasion.
Other stars on hand for the event included fashion model turned mom mogul Ivanka Trump, who has her share of plastic surgery in the past including a breast augmentation and nose job. Multi media diva Martha Stewart also has a modeling background was in attendance. And other stars like Lucy Liu, Hilaria Baldwin and fashion greats Anna Wintour and Ralph Lauren showed up at the elite event to honor 75-year Carolina Herrera as Fashion Week kicks off.none
British glamour model Casey Batchelor had promised that she was planning to undergo a breast reduction procedure. Although she built her career and fame off her buxom figure, Casey hoped to “change men’s perception” by reducing the size of her bust. At a recent event, Casey showed off her newly reduced chest and talked about her recent plastic surgery.
Sporting a snug fitting crop top that showed no cleavage and a matching high-waisted skirt, 29-year old showed off her figure sporting minimal makeup and talking with OK! Magazine about going under the knife at a recent Jeans for Genes event.
Talking with the online version of OK! Casey said that she hoped having a breast reduction procedure would actually improve her love life, because “Hopefully it will change men’s perception of me.”
Casey also revealed that there would be a few other changes to make after having the procedure done by Dr Jan Staneck, but none that were too drastic. When asked if Casey would be making any wardrobe changes, Casey said that she had gotten rid of her vast array of bras in her former size, but that her clothing still fit because she prefers to wear tight things.
“I’ll have to throw all my bras away but I’m hoping to give them to charity. I counted them the other day and I have 60 bras. Clothes wise I’ve always worn tight clothes so there won’t be a drastic change.”
Despite her happiness with her look and reportedly “gushing” about how “liberating” her new breasts are, Casey admitted that her plastic surgery recovery was difficult, thanks to bandages and medications.
“I had full on tape dressing wrapped around me for a week and I couldn’t get wet. That was difficult and I was on antibiotics so I was a bit out of it.”
At the event, Casey looked great and still had plenty of curves after the operation. Prior to the procedure, Casey had revealed that she was hoping that her FF to GG bra size would get down to a still ample EE. It seems that her hopes came true as although Casey isn’t revealing any cleavage yet, her bust was still full looking in her clinging crop top.
In a column that she wrote for the Daily Star in which she had initially revealed her plans to go under the knife, Casey admitted that although her breasts were a big help to her career, she still had insecurities about them.
“You might say I’m a model and use my boobs for my work, which is true, but it doesn’t mean I still can’t be insecure about them and being surrounded by girls who have perfectly-formed smaller breasts or girls implants so their chests sit there all perky, made me even more insecure.”
Casey said that her insecurities stemmed from childhood, when she developed much more and much sooner than her classmates.
The former Big Brother Celebrity contestant hoped to feel better about her breasts and to help fend off some of the “nasty” comments she received from male admirers after her procedure. Here’s hoping her wishes came true.none
Linda Evangelista is considered one of the top supermodels of all time. At one point her face covered nearly every major magazine. Yet these days, the 49-year old is almost unrecognizable and it isn’t just because of a new haircut and color job. It looks as though Linda is trying too hard to fight signs of aging and has actually gone overboard with non-invasive plastic surgery techniques, including Botox and facial fillers.
Linda Evangelista is best known for her glamorous looks, whether she’s rocking red hair or platinum blonde. But even supermodels take a day off, for better or worse. And Linda was looking less than her best when she stepped out without makeup last month, allowing paparazzi cameras to check out her plastic surgery up close.
Although Linda still is slim and in shape, her face appears very full and puffy, which is like the result of too many fat grafts or fillers being placed in her cheeks and in the laugh lines that go from nose to mouth. Without having any distinction in the areas of her face, Linda looks a little bloated and strange.
In addition, Linda’s forehead is very smooth, as is the space between her eyebrows. Her eyebrows have always been very arched but now they seem unusually elevated. This is likely an effect from too much Botox being used.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn hasn’t worked on Linda, but tells Radar, “The supermodel’s face looks super plumped up. I suspect that she’s had some injections of fat into her cheeks, causing them to look puffy like they do.”
“It also appears that she may have some Botox in her forehead, helping her keep the arched eyebrows that are her calling card. I also suspect that she may have had some injections of filler like Restylane into her smile lines, causing them to be a bit blunted. Overall, it’s hard to recognize her now.”
On the other hand, Linda looks flawless and is close to 50, so she is looking pretty good for her age.
“Linda looks remarkable for an almost-fifty-year-old. Her skin is tight, smooth, and flawless. She has admitted to Botox in the past, but nothing surgical,” New York plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman tells Radar.
“I cannot say that her face looks surgically-enhanced. She has likely benefited from a good skin care regimen, regular Botox, and probably an occasional chemical peel or some fillers. Add into the mix some great genetics and you probably have the reason why she continues to look amazing.”
Dr. Schulman is right. Shortly after she turned 40, Linda revealed that she is a firm believer in Botox and had also tried laser treatments, such as Thermage.
Linda said at the time, “I’m pro-cosmetic procedure. I use Botox and I’m not afraid to say it, though I do like to keep some movement in my face.”
“I do Thermage, a treatment to stimulate your collagen… For me, it’s just for enhancement, like hair color or make-up or any other tricks you can do to make yourself feel better.”none
Newcomer to the Real Housewives of New York City Kristen Taekman discussed her second breast augmentation at the reunion earlier in the summer. She recently showcased her new curves while on vacation at the family’s California home.
Kristen had revealed on a podcast the breast implants are actually her second set and were a present from her husband, EBOOST co-founder Josh Taekman, in celebration of the couple’s ninth wedding anniversary.
“First year is diamond, somewhere along there is paper and nine years is silicone,” the RHONY star joked during Brandi Glanville’s Podcast One show.
“I’ve had two kids and breastfed. I needed new ones. They look and feel so much better,” she told Glanville.
Before going under the knife the first time, Kristen revealed that she tried temporary devices to make her breasts appear to be larger.
“I had the cutlets for the longest time. I burned those puppies the second I got the real thing,” she laughed.
Although Kristen has talked about her new presents, this was the first time that she really showed them off. The Daily Mail recently posted pictures of Kristen having some playtime in the pool with her kids while sporting a small striped bikini that showed off her new implants.
Kristen’s new implants are said to be a size larger than her last pair, but the breast implants are still reasonable and look natural on her fit model’s body. While some Real Housewives become known for having oversized implants, Kristen appears to have stuck with a size that looks fairly natural on her frame. However, she will likely now show more cleavage at fancy events than on a casual pool day with the kids.
Because of her thin frame, Kristen could have run the risk of having very obvious bolted on and round implants, but her results are pretty natural and look to have settled in nicely because they aren’t set too high on her chest, nor do they look like they are “running away” from each other with too much space between them.
Rumor had it a while back that the entire current cast of RHONY was going to be fired in favor of finding new ladies, but reportedly that is no longer the case. For her part, Kristen certainly brought plenty of drama and interest, largely because much of her storyline focused on her tumultuous relationship with her husband, Josh.
Kristen revealed to Ok! Magazine that she feels doing the season was like marital therapy, as she didn’t realize before how badly they argue.
“After every episode, viewers would go on Twitter and tell me to divorce my husband. You’ve gotta love Twitter, right? I am really bummed about how he was portrayed. People are calling him a douche bag, and it really hurt him. He is not a douche bag. The show made him seem much harsher than he really is. Josh is an amazing guy, and a wonderful father. We learned, for example, that his humor is super dry and it really doesn’t translate to television. He was like, Oh my gosh, if we do season two, I’m changing my sense of humor. And I’m like, Don’t you dare! It’s what I love about you. I don’t want him to change.”none
Khloe Kardashian has been going through some major changes in her life and her physical transformation is just one of them. As Khloe gets older, it looks like she’s becoming more like her sisters and turning to plastic surgery for a boost.
30-year old Khloe Kardashian was recently spotted with a hot new look—super voluminous hair and plenty of lips and cleavage. But what really stood out was her dramatic brow structure, leading fans to wonder if Khloe had tried Botox injections.
Khloe’s super arched brows and firm and smooth forehead look like they could definitely be the result of Botox injections, which helps to refresh fallen brows and get rid of wrinkles.
However, the glam look could also be the result of makeup application, which enhances Khloe’s mouth into a perfect bow-shape and also amplifies her already arched and full brows.
Dr. Steve Fallek tells HollywoodLife, “It definitely looks like Khloe has had some work done. “She appears to have had lateral [injections] because her forehead is now firmer and her brows are in a new place. You also see a disappearance of crows feet on the outer eyes; there’s definitely new firmness there.”
Given her relatively young age, Khloe could be using Botox as a preventive measure to prevent further drooping as her eyebrows appear much higher than they were in the past. Dr. Fallek says he isn’t a fan of Botox as a preventative for wrinkles, but says that Khloe’s eyebrows and forehead look to be refreshed from their formerly droopy state.
Khloe could be experimenting with a new look after her rumored breakup with new beau French Montana, who is said to have cheated on the reality star and used her for her fame.
Whether or not Khloe has had Botox is unclear, but it certainly isn’t the first time that the reality star has faced allegations of plastic surgery. After showing off her ample rear end in a tight-fitting dress, many wondered if the statuesque star had undergone a buttocks augmentation like her big sister, Kim Kardashian.
A deleted scene from a recent Keeping up with the Kardashians episode seems to reveal the answer.
Khloe and sister Kourtney volunteer at a charity event with plastic surgery fan Bruce Jenner and an old lady pulls Khloe aside to tell a personal anecdote.
“I told my son how beautiful you are, and then I said, ‘Is that her real butt?’ And he said, ‘Yes, mom, it is!’” Khloe laughed, and said it was real — “You can touch it! It really is!”
Another old lady then approaches to whom Khloe explains, “She asked if my booty was real, and I said, ‘Yes, you can touch it!’” Khloe told her.
In the past, Khloe has claimed to be the only natural Kardashian. While big sister Kourtney has openly admitted to breast augmentation and Kim has openly admitted to Botox and laser treatments, Khloe says that she is all natural and any changes are due to working out.none
Funny woman Joan Rivers has plenty of experience going under the knife. But the outspoken comedian and fashion critic remains in the hospital one day after going into cardiac arrest during a routine visit to the doctor’s office.
81-year old Joan Rivers was placed in a medically induced coma after going into cardiac arrest in a doctor’s office during a routine visit. 911 was called and Joan is now in The Mount Sinai Hospital.
Daughter and professional sidekick to the legendary comic Melissa Rivers has flown from California to New York to be near her mom and issued a statement saying:
“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”
Joan is a busy lady, as the host of “Fashion Police” on E! network, she also presides over an online talk show, “In Bed With Joan” and co-stars with her daughter on the WEtv reality show, “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?”
In addition, Joan had performed live just 12 hours before her doctors visit, where event goers say she seemed to be in the best of health.
It’s unclear exactly how Joan is doing at this time, with her condition being named everything from critical to stable to resting comfortably. Hopefully Joan will make a full recovery and be back to her usual caustic banter in no time.
Joan is an open proponent of plastic surgery, having gone under the knife seemingly countless times. Over the past several decades, Joan has undergone numerous procedures which include numerous facelifts, a brow lift, cheek lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), Botox injections, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and breast augmentation, in addition to other procedures.
According to Joan, “I thinned my nose and raised the tip, had my eyes done, a full face-lift, liposuction, breast reduction, chin tucks, botox, collagen … I’m sure I’ve spent at least $80,000 over the years.”
Joan is such a fan of plastic surgery that she even encouraged her daughter Melissa to go under the knife at an early age. Melissa looks like she has undergone a nose job, cheek augmentation and possible browlift, although she has said that her mother’s constant procedures are a source of conflict for the couple.
Joan is well aware of her perception in the public eye and has even released a book advising others about plastic surgery. She tells a cautionary tale about liposuction as her own procedure wasn’t completely comfortable.
And while others may poke fun at her appearance, Joan always gets the last laugh when it comes to her own appearance, “I’ve had so much plastic surgery, when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware.”
The world is waiting for Joan to make a complete recovery and wait for the legend to return to her busy schedule as her daughter and grandson stand vigilantly by her side.
New mom JWoww is no stranger to plastic surgery. She’s had breast augmentation and probably liposuction. However, when it comes to discussing plastic surgery of the face, JWoww is full of confliction.
The Jersey Shore star best known as JWoww, whose real name is Jenni Farley, says that although she is in the midst of a mommy makeover and changing up her look, having plastic surgery on her face isn’t part of her plans. Instead, the new mom is relying on laser treatments and hair dye.
“I’m going a little blonder, obviously dieting – I want to get rid of all my jiggly-ness – and my girlfriends from The Real Housewives of New Jersey introduced me to their doctor,” Jenni tells People magazine of all she’s done so far to look better after baby. “He’s really good at doing microderms and skin tightening.”
Despite her open love of plastic surgery and willingness to do anything that makes her feel good about herself, Jenni says she draws the line at facial plastic surgery, such as nose jobs and facial implants. Why? Because she’s afraid that if she didn’t like the results, she would have no way of going back to her original look.
“I would do anything if it makes me feel good,” says Jenni. Except for her face. “I don’t like touching my face only because I’m always scared you can never go back. All those nose jobs and cheek implants and stuff like that, people get those and can never go back to what they were. I love my nose.”
Although Jenni has misgivings about trying any type of invasive plastic surgery on her face, the 28-year old is well aware of the passage of time and is still open to trying Botox as a way to get rid of wrinkles.
“I’m getting up there in age – I’m about to be 30. I don’t like wrinkles. But I wouldn’t go overboard and get that frozen face when you’re trying to cry and look like you’re smiling.”
Jenni has always prided herself about being open about transforming her body with plastic surgery. She tells the magazine that she is planning to have another procedure in the near future. Sometime after BFF Snooki gets married this fall, Jenni plans to upsize her current breast implants with a larger pair. But she doesn’t plan to go too crazy with that either.
“The only thing I’d implant is my boobs. I’m planning on getting my boobs bigger in the fall after Nicole ["Snooki" Polizzi's] wedding. I’m a 34F right now. I’ll stop before I get to the balloon stage.”
Jenni’s confessions about her thoughts on plastic surgery come on the heels of claims that Jenni has already been using Botox and fillers, which have the effect of making her appear older than she is.
Yet Jenni maintains that makeup is what has transformed her appearance, not plastic surgery and that underneath the layers she is just a plain Jane mom.none
Saaphyri Windsor is probably best known to reality television fans for appearing on Flavor of Love 2 and winning Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School. Saaphyri is now back on reality television, seeking the aid of plastic surgeons Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow as she tells the reality star men about her previous botched plastic surgery and all the bizarre details of her experience.
During the pre-surgery interview with former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dr. Paul Nassif and Real Housewives of Orange County star Dr. Terry Dubrow, Saaphyri reveals her bizarre past experience with plastic surgery.
Saaphyri, who has made the rounds on several of VH1’s reality competition shows, begins the interview with the story of her weight loss on an unusual diet plan.
“A few years ago, I lost a lot of weight. I did like, this three-day diet where you just eat ice cream at night, and you eat the other foods during the day,” Saaphyri told the doctors, who then exchange looks.
“The ice cream diet? No, I don’t know that,” Dr, Dubrow said, laughing. In the confessional camera, Dr. Nassif said, “I like that ice cream diet, I think I want to get on that!”
After the revelation about her diet secret, Saaphyri’s story becomes even more unbelievable.
She says that during her first breast augmentation, she woke up in the middle of the procedure and said, “ow!” to which the doctor told her to be quiet.
She then related other tales of the doctors of misdeeds, including, “There was one patient, and he didn’t even take her to the hospital, he took her to his home! She actually died in his home. It was actually in the news and everything,” she said before adding that her family was really upset.
At a later point in the discussion, she went on to say that with yet another patient, the doctor did that to someone else and that the patient later murdered the doctor at a Frosty Freeze—no less than an ice cream place!
Saaphyri wants the doctors to correct her previous plastic surgery, which left her with huge implants and a prominent mark across her stomach. She explains, “I need my breasts to be professional breasts, not stripper breasts.”
Saaphyri hopes that the doctors can reduce the size of her breasts as well as perform some liposuction and give her a flat stomach. They accomplish the difficult task and Saaphyri leaves satisfied with her new 34DDs and an internal girdle to keep her stomach flat.
According to Wikipedia, Saaphyri has appeared on many reality shows in the past, including every episode of I Love Money 2 except for the reunion episode due to her legal issues. Apparently in 2009 Saaphyri was sentenced to three years in prison after failing to show up for a 2005 court date where she was charged with using her uncle’s identity without his permission. Maybe she needed to pay for some plastic surgery?
Kim Zolciak isn’t shy about showing off her assets. Whether it’s her wig collection or her post baby body, Kim is taking pictures and sharing them with fans. But when Andy Cohen questioned her about a new pair of breast implants, Kim suddenly played coy.
Andy Cohen, the host of Watch What Happens Live frequently hosts the stars of his reality shows on his own show. And after hosting for several seasons now, he has learned to spot signs of plastic surgery, from recent fillers to new noses. So he probably knows what he’s talking about when he asked Kim if she had recently had a breast augmentation.
“Did you get new boobs?” Andy asked. To which Kim answered, “You have to watch the show and see.”
Kim is promoting her new season of Don’t Be Tardy and clearly wants to make sure that viewers are interested in watching. The trailer for the season that was previously shown indicated that Kim has gone under the knife recently. In the trailer, Kim, a former RHoA star visits plastic surgeon Leo Hochstein, the “Boob God of Miami” and the husband of Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein.
It’s not exactly as if Kim is a complete stranger to plastic surgery. In an early season of RHOA, Kim underwent a liposuction procedure—even as she ate pizza. She also admitted to having a nose job to help straighten out her nose, a procedure she had been considering for years. And on a trailer for her new spinoff show, Kim is seen in a doctor’s office being examined by a doctor and someone is shown holding breast implants.
The possibility of a mommy makeover as Make Me Heal predicted is also indicated with Kim’s warning to hubby Kroy, “Once I were to get my tummy and boobs done, I will kill a bitch if you were to get me pregnant.”
After having her twins earlier this year, the latest addition to Kim’s family after four other children: 19-month old Kash, 2-year old KJ and 12-year old Arian and 16-year old Brielle, Kim slimmed down quick.
According to Kim, she lost the weight by working out hard, but not be depriving herself of her favorite foods.
When a fan tweeted Kim to ask if she had actually undergone any procedures, Kim once again played coy, responding, “I consulted with @lhochsteinmd on a mommy makeover you will have to watch and see if i go through with it.”
Kim is clearly open to the possibility of plastic surgery. In a recent episode, she hits up her local plastic surgeon asking for as much Botox as can possibly be injected.
So when she plays coy with Andy, Andy is pretty certain that Kim has indeed gotten her breast implants replaced, saying “I think you have new boobs.”
Kim still declines to answer and moves on with the segment. Which means fans will have to watch the show to see whether or not Kim has had a breast implant replacement.
