“Plastic Wives”: A Peek Inside The Wild World of The Cosmetic Surgery Industry
As if the Real Housewives series wasn’t scary enough, TLC is introducing a new reality show that features one woman who has trouble remembering all the cosmetic surgery she’s had, but who certainly won’t forget her labiaplasty surgery…because she keeps her labia in a jar. Plastic Wives, which premiers later this month, offers an inside look at the lives of the lucky ladies married to the most sought-after plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, chronicling their lives and, undoubtedly, their countless nips and tucks at the hands of their husbands. Needless to say, these women have, by default, racked up some serious frequent flyer miles in the plastic surgery world.
Beverly Hills is the Mecca of cosmetic surgery, and you’d think that the wives of the most revered Beverly Hills plastic surgeons would be the best advertisements for their husbands’ services. For at least a few of the four main women featured on Plastic Wives, however, this is not exactly the case. Take Dayna, who has had a rhinoplasty, breast implants, tummy tuck and more, and who may not be able to show expression in her face anymore thanks to Botox, but who at least still looks like a normal human being. Alayna (the labia lady), on the other hand, has, with the help of bad plastic surgery, morphed into a masculine-looking humanoid with rock-hard boobs and giant lips.
Reality television has really raised the bar for the shocking and scandalous over the years, and Plastic Wives is TLC’s latest pet project. Ironically enough, “TLC” first started out an an acronym for The Learning Channel, and the network initially produced shows focused solely on educational content. TLC seems to have found a new niche though, flooding the airwaves with sensational reality TV shows like Secrets of a Trophy Wife, Extreme Cougar Wives, The Real Housewives series and now Plastic Wives, relying on strange, unconventional relationships and appalling subject matter to gain viewership. What exactly are we learning here, TLC?
If shock factor equals success in the reality TV world, TLC seems to have hit the nail on the head with Plastic Wives. As the network so accurately puts it, “These women are so obsessed with looks that they’ll stop at nothing to attain perfection from head to toe — and everywhere in between. From labiaplasty to chin liposuction to G-Spot injections, these extreme treatments have become routine for those living inside this industry. To certain women, aging gracefully isn’t an option.” And now, thanks to TLC, we all have front-row seats to the freak show. Will you be tuning in for the premier of “Plastic Wives” on January 27th?
