Earlier this year, Kesha went to rehab in hopes of curing her eating disorder. If there’s one thing Kesha didn’t gain in rehab, it’s weight. So did her time at Timberline Knolls, an all women rehab facility near Chicago, really pay off? Well for starters, her name is now Kesha—no dollar sign. And while she still looks skinny as ever, friends and family say she has made big improvements since returning home. Her mother, Pebe Sebert, has said her daughter’s condition before rehab was so bad she’s lucky Kesha is still alive.
Kesha has never been big, except maybe by the crazy standards of Hollywood—and her producer, a man named Dr. Luke. Dr. Luke has taken a lot of blame for Kesha’s eating disorder ever since it went public he told Kesha she resembled “a f**king refrigerator.” Fans are furious, and they should be, no man should make a woman feel bad about her body. Still, cops are working to protect Dr. Luke, as fans fire off about killing him on his Twitter page. Perhaps Dr. Luke sees it as his job to tell Kesha to keep fit and lose weight, but his big mouth might lose him his job. Petitions with over 11,000 signatures are circulating trying to free Kesha from Dr. Luke’s management. Dr. Luke was the first to offer Kesha management after hearing a demo tape of hers back in 2005. He has also represented names such as Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.
In all photos of Kesha, she has thin arms and legs; the singer carries most of her weight in her mid-section. Regardless, she always looks gorgeous. Plus, she’s got a lot of accomplishments under her belt. The pop star has written hit songs for others in the industry, including Brittney Spears. She also has put out many number one hits herself. You’d think this would give any woman all of the confidence in the world, although Kesha said pre-rehab, “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice.” This was her reason for going to rehab, in order to re-learn how to love herself no matter what.
Fans looked to her latest music video for Timber, featuring Pitbull and Kesha together, as a visual sign of her eating disorder. In the video Kesha looks much skinnier than ever before. Perhaps just as skinny as she was back in high school when Kesha appeared on The Simple Life with Paris Hilton and Nichole Richie. Yes, she was one of the ‘simpletons’ that allowed the x-best friends to stay at her house and mock her simple way of life. Not so much anymore, Kesha is a full-blown celebrity, even able to hit up rehab whenever she wants. While she originally said she was going to be at rehab for 30 days, she ended up being there for 2 months.
In March, Kesha made her first red carpet appearance since being away at rehab, and her fans were full of support and admiration. Kesha is in a great position to be an advocate for other women with body image issues, although you can’t help but think the singer doesn’t look much thicker post-rehab.
In a photo the singer published after returning home from rehab she wears a shirt that reads, “IMA SURVIVOR.” Although her legs look questionably thin, something any woman concerned with body image is sure to notice. Still, friends report that Kesha is doing great since rehab, and so long as she is happy and healthy…
The Netflix original series House of Cards almost had to cast a different actress to play Claire Underwood. Robin Wright stands firm when it comes to her beliefs, and original proposals for the show did not sound favorable to the 48-year old long-time actress. Admittedly she says, “I’m not up there with Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts. I don’t sell tickets. I’ve known that for a long time.” Lucky for her, producers of House of Cards still wanted her bad enough to make some deals. Now, after wining awards for her character Claire Underwood, Wright might be able to sell more tickets than ever before.
House of Cards rocketed Wright into the spotlight, but the show wasn’t her first rodeo by any means. Back in 1987, Wright played Princess Buttercup in the movie Princess Bride. As her first feature film, she was ecstatic but also incredibly nervous. Looking back, she recalls hardly acting at all, but instead just trying not to look bad in front of all the amazing actors and actresses on set with her. You may also remember Wright from the classic movie Forest Gump.
Her biggest competition back in the day was Molly Ringwald, who beat her out for a number of roles. Today, both actresses are in their forties and rocking it on the red carpet. Although it was a close call for Wright, when she nearly missed her opportunity to get back in on the media glitz and glamour. She debated turning down playing the wife of Frank Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey) on House of Cards—in fact she was almost positive she wouldn’t take the role.
That’s because the role of Claire Underwood originally began as a less active character, and Wright has no interest in playing “arm candy.” If she’s going to play a role, she wants to work at it and develop as a character before the audiences’ eyes. Another problem with the role was the pressure to undergo a face-lift in preparation for the part. She told Town & Country, “I was sitting there going, ‘You’re 45, and you’re not gonna get a face-lift. And I was really considering that stuff, because in Hollywood the pressure’s there… And I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles!’”
In order to have Wright on set, David Fincher, director of House of Cards, agreed to all of Wright’s conditions. He’s sure glad he did. Not only does Robin Wright play an incredible Claire Underwood, but she also helped create the character the world has grown to love.
Being famous is clearly not Wright’s number one priority; being out of the spotlight doesn’t bother her one bit. According to her, “Hollywood is difficult to navigate if you have integrity.” In order to keep her integrity, Wright doesn’t take just any role. In fact, for a long time she faded out of the spotlight completely. Choosing to focus on raising her family instead of being the ‘it’ actress in Hollywood. As opposed to playing a pointless role, Wright says she’d rather do a “menial labor job, where I can actually get my hands dirty.”
You’ve got to admire the woman for her confidence to turn down big time roles in honor of her own morals. Wright is also brave enough to rock the wrinkles on the red carpet, which you can see (just barely) in the photo below. Good thing she’s talented enough to talk the ‘no-lines’ minds of Hollywood into giving her ‘natural’ look a chance. You go girl!

Rumor has it that, when it comes to her stunning looks and perfect body, Beyonce is faker than a 3 dollar bill. If you believe the gossip websites and tabloids Beyonce has had everything done: from her nose and her lips, to her boobs and her hips. Apparently Beyonce also has butt implants, got a facelift, she lightens her skin and she even photoshops her own Instagram pictures to appear slimmer. We are all for speculation and analyzing photos of celebrities then and now, but when so many people just flat out make up things up, it starts to get a bit ridiculous. I mean, come on, if you’re going to gossip about stuff, at least gossip about something that might be true?
After seeing some recent pictures of Beyonce looking a little facially stiff at a basketball game, we delved into the archives to compare pictures of Beyonce through the years to see if she’s dipping into the Botox. After pouring through pictures of Beyonce, from her high school years to now, clearly Beyonce was born beautiful and she has great genes to thank for her pretty face and perfect smile.
Check out the picture above of Beyonce at her high school prom. Can you look at that picture and tell me that you really think Beyonce has had a nose job, lip injections, cheek implants and a facelift? She looks exactly the same! As for that envious body of Beyonce’s, that’s all hard work and dedication. In addition to her powerful voice, Beyonce is also well-known for her dancing. And to pull off the difficult moves and rigorous routines she performs, that takes numerous hours of practice, which will leave anyones body in tip-top shape.
Beyonce gettin’ down as only Queen Bey can:
So if you ask us, Beyonce is one of the lucky few that is not only talented, but apparently she also won the gene lottery and those good looks are all natural. What do you think? Is 32-year old Beyonce truly a natural beauty or does she have the worlds best plastic surgeon on hand?Tags: Destiny's Child, over 30, rumors, singers
According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2013 men and women underwent 11.4 million cosmetic procedures. While a lot of those procedures can likely be linked to Joan Rivers, these numbers indicate that more people are getting plastic surgery than they have in years. 83.5% of all cosmetic procedures performed last year were nonsurgical, think Botox injections and laser hair removal. That means only 16.5% of procedures required going under the knife.
So what was the most popular surgical procedure of 2013? Liposuction takes the cake, with 363,912 people getting the fat literally sucked out of them. Last year liposuction even beat out always-popular breast implants—maybe because so many people already have those
Despite what liposuction did to Tara Reid and Courtney Love’s stomachs, Americans are getting a lot of liposuction lately!
Butt implants were clearly on the rise last year, right alongside big booty celebrities like Nikki Minaj and Kim Kardashian. 58% more people got butt implants last year than ever before. Even more impressive, those interested in the procedure increased by 100%! If you’re thinking about getting your bottom enlarged, buttock augmentation is apparently well-worth the ‘pain in the a**.’ 94% of people who underwent surgery to enhance their bum in 2013 rate the procedure as ‘worth it’.
Another surgery on the rise is labiaplastiy. What is labiaplasty? Oh, you know just changing the shape or size of your lady parts. This procedure costs around $10,000, give or take a few thousand, and literally includes surgically removing parts of your labia. As it sounds, the procedure is terribly painful. 44% more women (very brave women, might I add) underwent the procedure last year than ever before. From this group of women, 85% say all of the pain was worth it and they are happy with their new labia. I think I’m more curious about the 15% of women that are not happy with their results. I can only imagine how much might go wrong…
What procedure did you fantasize about getting most last year? Are you still dreaming of the same procedure today?Tags: 2013, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
After over 50 years in the entertainment industry, Patti Labelle has not only made a name for herself, but she is regarded as a legend. Reflecting back on her career and rise to fame, Patti has very few regrets, but the one thing she wishes that she never did was having plastic surgery.
In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, when asked if there was anything that Patti would tell her younger self, if she could go back in time, she makes a shocking revelation and admits that she had a nose job. According to Patti:
“I would tell my younger self not to have had problems with the way that I looked when I was younger. Not to worry about that nose. I had a bigger nose so I had a nose job. That’s the only surgery that I’ve ever had on my face or body. Nowhere [else]. But, I was beating myself up about the way my nose looked and my nose was fine before I changed it, but it was my way of thinking that once I got on TV it was going to look bigger. Got the nose done and that’s it. But, I would have said Patti back in the day, you shouldn’t have touched your nose, be yourself.”
Like many women trying to make their way in Hollywood, even multi-talented Patti Labelle caved to the pressure at one point and underwent plastic surgery. It’s easy to pick yourself apart, and even easier nowadays to “fix” every little thing with plastic surgery. Thankfully Patti stopped after the one nose job and looks amazing at 70, without undergoing any further surgeries. When asked about her beauty secrets, she credits God and good genes for her radiant appearance today.
Perhaps even more shocking than Patti Labelle’s plastic surgery confession is that the 70-year old singer does not own a cell phone! Now you certainly don’t see that everyday…Tags: over 70, regrets, singers
Gwyneth Paltrow appears sweet and innocent, even according to most of her movie roles. And with that girl next-door appearance, it seems all of her neighbors would love her. On the contrary, according to people who actually share her Brentwood neighborhood, she is somewhat of a raging nightmare. While her neighbors aren’t huge fans, it seems that Joan Rivers wouldn’t be much of a fan either. Especially after Gwyneth went on the record to say that while she would consider plastic surgery within the next 10 years, there was no way she was going to go for Botox again. Not after injections left her looking, “crazy, like Joan Rivers.”
Rivers is a practical joker who loves to make fun of people, and she doesn’t seem to care what Gwyneth has to say. Apparently her response to Gwyneth’s remarks were, “She should see what I look like without Botox. That’s really scary.”
Apparently Gwyneth can say what she wants about Joan Rivers but be careful what you say about Gwyneth. Turns out her neighbors on the exclusive Mandeville Canyon Road can’t even talk to the blonde mother of 2, actress, and now divorcee. The moment her and her family moved in they installed Do Not Trespass signs, layers of trees, and a 9-foot fence. All in hopes of keeping the hungry paparazzi out of their personal lives, and their neighbors too. Not even their neighbors have a chance to get to know the couple, who are currently going through a split. Instead a man named Oliver handles the couple’s public relations, including those with their neighbors.
One neighbor shied away from telling reporters anything about Gwen, saying “I don’t want anything bad to happen to me, so I can’t say anything. Last time I did, then it was difficult, so now I don’t want any problems.”
Gwyneth Paltrow sure looks sweet, but according to her neighbors you don’t want to mess with her, or else!
Still, for being in her forties Gwyneth Paltrow looks amazing, so what does she do to keep her skin perfect? “I’ve probably tried everything.” She says in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She will continue trying just about anything, especially when she starts to age a bit more. Although after trying Botox, it’s a no-go. Gwyneth isn’t the only celebrity to swear of Botox. Nicole Kidman stopped getting Botox and admitted she is relieved to, “…finally move my face again.” As for Gwyneth’s own mother, Blythe Danner, she said back in 2010, “Well, I think we’ve all fooled around with Botox.”
Vanity Wonder can’t tell you about Wonder bras, but she can tell you about her wonder booty—no really, this thing is huge! The 30-year old woman won’t be making it any bigger though. After spending $15,000 on black market injections, Wonder has given up her addiction. Some sources say this decision arose because butt injections almost killed her. Other sources quote Wonder saying she stopped getting the butt injections because she nearly went to jail for it, and she couldn’t imagine her sons carrying on without her. Either way, Wonder has now written a book called “Shot Girls” in which she tries to actively spread awareness about the dangers of black market injections.
(…And if you think that’s shocking, you should see what Vanity looked like before!
It doesn’t seem like any book will stop Detroit resident, Karmello, from getting her butt injections. This 23-year-old woman is profiled alongside Wonder on TLC’s show, My Strange Addiction. Karmello takes risks to keep her booty growing bigger. She regularly meets strange and un-credentialed people in random hotel rooms, and allows them to inject unknown substances into her body. Karmello doesn’t care, she’s just proud of the 3 dress sizes she’s been able to increase thanks to all of the injections over the last 3 years. If you’ve never seen TLC’s My Strange Addiction, it’s a show that profiles all types of addicts, from people who dress up as babies, to those who sniff gasoline. The show always forces the addicts to go to a doctor to ensure they are not developing any underlying health complications because of their addiction. When Karmello goes to the doctor, her x-rays reveal an odd material that looks spongy swimming throughout her body. The doctor warns Karmello that one more injection could be all it takes to end her life.
Karmello and Wonder are not the only women familiar with black market injections, although they are among the lucky ones, simply because they are still alive. You may not hear about it often, but deaths from black market injections have been reported in Mississippi, New York, Florida, Nevada, and many other locations. In one California case, a woman went to her doctor after getting illegal butt injections and then experiencing hard, painful nodules. Her doctor informed her of the horrifying truth: she was being injected with silicone that could be purchased at a hardware store.
Morris Garner was once a man, and then he became a woman. Throughout the transition, Morris also decided to become an uncertified “doctor” and inject women with counterfeit silicone, among other harmful substances. Many of the women Garner injected ended up dying. Karima Gordon was one of these women; she died only days after being injected by Garner. When Gordon was opened up for her autopsy, silicone spilt out everywhere onto the table and floor. The excessive amount of dirt-cheap silicone had caused Gordon to form blood clots in her lungs and die. No big booty is worth it for that.
A big butt looks sexy, but no one looks sexy when they are dead. Stay safe out there!Tags: butt shots, My Strange Addiction
Khloe Kardashian and her sister Kim stepped out last week to go to the NBC Universal Upfronts Presentation in New York and…Good God! Look at Khloe’s gigantic new fake butt!!
Khloe showed up with her sister Kim, and they proceeded to pose in every which way possible so that the photographers could shoot Khloe’s newly enlarged derriere in all of its ridiculousness.
Times sure have changed for Khloe, haven’t they? It was just last year that Khloe was desperately trying to get pregnant with Lamar Odom’s child, but her embarrassing divorce seems to have thrown her into a tailspin of clubbing, bad plastic surgery and poor fashion choices. Honestly, I am not a fan of any of the Kardashians, but Khloe was always the least abrasive to me…Well, that sure changed quickly, as Khloe has suddenly become the most desperate for attention!
Seriously, though, what was Khloe thinking? You know that old saying, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”? Well, maybe we need to update that to today’s times and use instead, “you can put a big ol’ grandma butt on a wookie, but it’s still a wookie”?
So how did 29-year old Khloe achieve the butt of an obese grandmother, set atop a pair of skinny as hell legs and flat-as-a-board stomach? The same way her sister Kim Kardashian did: plastic surgery. Just like Kim, Khloe has had a “brazilian butt lift”, or liposuction with fat transfer. During this procedure, the fat is removed, via liposuction, from the waist and thighs, and it is then injected into the butt to add volume and round the shape.
Don’t get me wrong, I like big butts and I can not lie, but I’m already so tired of the weird fake butts that are becoming trendy. Bigger is not always better.Tags: Kartrashians, reality stars, under 30
