I wrote a post the other day called Psycho Street which discussed New Beauty magazine, dedicated to plasticizing your face and body into some kind off morphed version of yourself, with the help of botox, and other poison filled products.
Ever since I have been thinking about how I didn’t take that one far enough. As I scoured the web for images of stars and the like who have engaged in these “beauty” rituals, I came across some pictures that, frankly, were too gross and disturbing to post.
I thought to myself, I can’t post these because it is mean spirited. After all these people look like total freaks, and I don’t want to make fun of them.
Then I thought, wait a minute. They made a choice, and they keep going with it. One beauty procedure lead to another, and another, and another…until the result was something maybe no one expected, and no one can repair. I still find this so sad because the reason these women were lead down this path is because they didn’t have self esteem.
Here are the worst of the worst plastic surgery cases I have ever seen. If this is the “New Beauty” count me out.
Introducing “The Cat Lady.” Jocelyn Wildenstein is a Manhattan socialite who prances around the city drawing crowds where ever she goes.
Remember the band Dead or Alive? This is Pete Burns, his most famous hit “You Spin Me Round Like A Record” was all the rage in the eighties. What makes a guy, that is quite good looking, start injecting his lips to the point of no return. This story has a sad ending, since Pete ended up suing his surgeon to the final botched lip operation that turned out so grotesque, he considered suicide.
Latoya Jackson has followed in the footsteps of her brother Michael. This one makes me especially sad because the “real” Latoya doesn’t exist anymore due to major work on ever feature on her face. What makes a woman so unhappy with herself that she undergoes painful, repetitive surgery to rid herself of her god given face?
I’ve always felt sorry for Pamela Anderson. I don’t know why, I guess I always sensed this sadness about her. I understand some would say she is parading herself out for the world to see, and loving every minute of it…..but I don’t buy it. This is one sad girl, you can just see it in her eyes.
Another natural beauty who just was not good enough for herself.
At first I had a hard time believing the woman on the left was Catherine Zeta Jones, but if you look close enough you can see the resemblance.
Former supermodel Janice Dickinson butchers her beautiful face.
Meg Ryan 1999, and Meg Ryan now. My husband and I were at a movie and there was a preview for Ryan’s latest film. The second she came on screen, we looked at each other and said “What did she do to herself?”
OK, enough of that, lets talk about women who are aging gracefully! What child wants a Grandma that is hard as a rock?
Amen for these ladies. They are shining examples of real beauty.
