Joan Rivers Gets 734th Procedure, Reese Not Opposed to Nip/Tuck [Weekly Round-Up]

Princess 19 on 3 Feb 2012 at 11:30am

Ladies and gentlemen, it's back - The Weekly Round-Up.  All the plastic surgery news worthy of a quickie mention from the past week.  It was a celeb-filled week as January wound down.  Let's start with Joan Rivers, the "poster child for too much plastic surgery" as she dubs herself.

The reality series Joan and Melissa:  Joan Knows Best? premiered two weeks ago on WeTV.  How did we miss this?  The show does not disappoint with Joan River's honest, yet comedic, views on going under the knife.  In two episodes she has already had another facelift-type procedure and given procedures as gifts, such as liposuction and cheek work

Joan, Then and Now

Melissa, her daughter, does attempt a "skintervention" to keep her from getting her 734th procedure (or so WeTV wants us to believe as they flashed that number with this insinuation), but clearly THAT did not work.  Joan trudged on as it was "time for maybe a 10,000 mile tune-up on my neck” as she put it.

Why all the "under the knife" fuss? 

According to Joan, "The whole thing with plastic surgery is you should know what you need," she tells WeTV.  "I'm on television. I need my face to look good."

Your really can't argue with that.

Reese Talks Plastic Surgery

Reese Witherspoon plastic surgeryReese Witherspoon (gasp) gave her opinion on going under the knife, albeit for Glamour UK.  Why is it when directly asked by any US media outlet, celebs seem almost tight-lipped about the subject.  When anyone across the pond or Asia asks, it's blab, blab, blab.  Have they not realized there's something called the internet that will take these quotes and blast them to their homeland?  We digress...

Regardless, Reese gave the lovely ambiguous celebrity answer: 

"I'm not for it. I'm not against it. I have plenty of friends who do stuff and if it makes you feel good, great."

She also gave the PC opinion of, "I don't think it's the fix for some sort of unease that you're having about who you are as a human being." 

Lastly she adds, "I don't think I need plastic surgery at this point."

No, Reese, you do not.

HGH Hormone Hits Hollywood

Looks like Hollywood has discovered the fountain of youth.  But, it's not another drug.  It's a hormone.  The March issue of Vanity Fair, claims that Tinseltown is all abuzz injecting HGH or Human Growth Hormone as the "end all be all" cure for everything from gray hair to sexual impotence. 

Alana Stewart HGH hormoneAlana Stewart, ex of both George Hamilton and Rod Stewart, is the only celeb admitting use in the piece.

"I had started noticing a few gray hairs coming in. But I noticed that when I was taking it — no gray hairs.”

If only if it were that easy!

Don't rush to your drugstores just yet.  The hormone is not FDA-approved for cosmetic use AND it costs a hefty $10,000 to maintain results. 

A nice box of L'Oreal might be a much cheaper habit.
