The Popular Reality Show, Real Housewives of Orange County Has “Altered” Stars
Each of the Women have had Cosmetic Makeovers
Does all this Nipping and Tucking Bring Love and Happiness in O.C.?Â
“Botox in Paradise”
The Bravo TV reality series, The Real Housewives of Orange County, follows the lives of five women, ages 40 to early 50′s, the majority of whom have been nipped, tucked, botoxed, and boob jobbed.
We wondered, do cosmetic makeovers really make a difference in one’s life, bringing happiness and or success?
In the 3rd season, viewers lived vicariously through the five women as they went about their southern California sun-drenched lives, living in beautiful homes in gated communities with marble floors and crystal clear blue pools in the backyard.
We watched as the 40-year-old Tamra, along with the 40-something Tammy and 52-year-old Quinn attended a “botox” party at a plastic surgeon’s office. Both Tamra and Tammy opted for botox shots in between “liquid” refreshments while Quinn politely declined.
What is BotoxÂ®? BotoxÂ® injections are a diluted form of botulism which is injected into facial muscles to paralyze or weaken the muscles that form wrinkles. Last year, the procedure was performed in the United States more than 1.6 million times, a 46 percent increase since 2000 and a 2,356 percent increase since 1997. Source - Smart Plastic Surgery
With the exception of Quinn, who looks the most “natural,” all the “housewives” have had cosmetic work done, to their faces, their breasts and bodies. The 52-year-old Quinn claims to still have her “own” face but we’re not sure about the boobs.
Does “Botox in Paradise” describe the women?
