Paul PJ James is a sexy, ripped personal trainer that went from fit to fat, to fit again! In an attempt to better understand what his overweight clients were going through, the trainer decided to add 100 pounds to his lean and trim 176-lb frame. Instead of bench pressing and practicing endless lunges, the handsome hunk sat back and enjoyed carton after carton of ice cream. He didn’t stop eating until he couldn’t buckle a size-48 belt, and his health began to suffer.
James is not only a personal trainer, his incredible body has also earned him the opportunity to model some of the world’s most fashionable underwear, such as Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabbana, Versace and more. Even with perfect pecks and well-defined arms James encountered some difficulties in his occupation. He was struggling to motivate his overweight clients that complained of achy knees, and other excuses why they couldn’t complete certain exercises.
As a man that lived on lean protein, vegetables and squats James felt disconnected with his heavier clients struggling with overeating disorders and a lifetime of body insecurities. James wanted to relate to his clients and offer them better advice than, “Eat more vegetables.” To which many replied, “You are an underwear model, you don’t get it!”
As a compassionate guy James knew he didn’t get it, but he sure wanted to. Otherwise, taking on clients that really needed help getting into shape didn’t feel right anymore. And what’s the point of being a personal trainer when you can’t help the people that need it most?
And so came the decision to add 50% of his body weight and then lose it in only 1-year. His first binge night fell on New Years Eve. As James rang in 2009 he devoured 4 lamb gyros, a plate full of BBQ, salad, bread with fattening dips, fried fish, and 8 cans of Cola to wash it all down. Not only is James a model and trainer, but he is also a trained chef used to eating the healthiest foods. His ultra-fit body was quick to react, packing on 12-pounds in only one night!
For the next few months James continued indulging in all of the foods usually reserved for his Sunday cheat days, mac and cheese, KFC, ramen noodles, fudge pizzas, you name it and James ate it!
He also dedicated himself to the couch instead of lifting weights, swimming in the ocean, or playing a round of golf. At first, the 33-year old Australian was in “heaven,” but as he saw his years of hard-chiseled work morphing into fat he started to feel less enthusiastic about watching marathon TV shows with a bucket of caramel ice cream.
Once he reached his goal weight, his doctors became concerned about his rising cholesterol, blood sugar, and liver enzyme levels. Not to mention the stretch marks ripping across his chest and his increasing depression. And so at last it was time to ditch the couch and the potato chips and shed the pounds, getting back to being the real James. After working his buns—and belly—off James was able to achieve the rock hard body he possessed before, as well as a whole new outlook on life and weight loss.
His clients appreciated the efforts he was willing to go through just to walk in their shoes. His dedication helped them make sacrifices of their own, shedding off excess weight and eating healthier in ways they never even imagined.
In the end James was able to prove that no matter what size you are you can achieve a perfectly fit body with the right exercises, tools, and dedication. Anyone else feeling motivated to hit the gym?!Tags: Paul James, personal trainers
Chris Brown threw a hissy fit online yesterday after Tamar Braxton and Adrienne Bailon insulted his relationship with Karrueche Tran. Tamar and Adrienne, who co-host “The Real”, insinuated that Chris Brown’s girlfriend simply puts up with him because she and her friends love the fame and, clearly, their statements hit a nerve with hot-headed Chris, who unleashed on them via his Instagram account.
Chris started in on Adrienne Bailon, calling her a “trout mouth ass bitch“, claiming that she was a hoe and that “Last time u was important n****s was riding spinners and wearing 6x tall Ts“. (For the record, Chris Brown is only 6 years younger than Adrienne Bailon.)
Chris then turned his anger to Tamar Braxton calling her “the ugly sister“, a “muppet face ass” and calling her out for having bad plastic surgery. Or as Chris so eloquently put it, “Dat plastic surgery f***ed yo face up“.
And while we personally find Chris Brown to be an immature douchebag, welllllll, he’s kinda right about Tamar Braxton looking like a muppet after all of that plastic surgery…
Tamar Braxton is the younger sister of singer Toni Braxton, and like her sister, 37-year old Tamara appears to have had a bit of plastic surgery over the past few years. The unfortunate result, as Chris Brown said, is that she is looking a tad on the Muppet-y side!
Like her sister Toni, Tamar appears to have had a nose job, which really isn’t so bad, but paired with those crazy looking cheek implants and whatever she had done that has left her with a permanently surprised look on her face (brow lift and/or loads of Botox), is just too much.Tags: feuds, over 30
After a year of being under a conservatorship by her parents Amanda Bynes is back on the streets, off her meds and back to her old tricks of DUI’s, bad weaves, plastic surgery and twitter rage.
When the conservatorship ended, a little over a month ago, Amanda left her parents house, stopped taking her medication and has managed to get: arrested for DUI, accused of shoplifting, kicked out of school and thrown back into a mental facility. Now, she’s out of the hospital and back on the streets acting bizarre, talking to inanimate objects, obsessing about her looks, talking about her numerous plastic surgery procedures (that she’s had, wants and needs) and judging other celebrities on her scale of ugliness. In her most recent Tweet, Amanda sets her sights on Zac Efron. According to Amanda. Zac makes her “not ugly” list:
By the way I just want to tweet that Zac Efron is not ugly

Amanda’s parents headed back to court last week to obtain another conservatorship, which sent Amanda off the rails and back to Twitter to accuse her father of sexual abuse, again.
The police filed a report against my dad – I am not able to be in the same room with him. He is a sexual predator and he SHOULD BE IN JAIL
— amanda bynes (@amandabynes) October 31, 2014
On Friday, Amanda met with a judge to try to convince him that she was under control, but not before stopping off at a restaurant for lunch where the waitress described her as “chatty” and openly “talking about her plastic surgery”. Although the waitress did have to step out of the way several times to make room for Amanda’s imaginary friend…
Amanda has been spotted with several bandages on her face over the last month, so who knows if her latest plastic surgery is all in her head, or if she has really found a plastic surgeon to operate on her, but most recently she claims to have had a procedure done to remove “micro cysts” under her eyes.
Currently, Amanda has not been able to convince the judge that she is well enough to make her own decisions and a new conservatorship is in the works. Hopefully her parents will be able to get her under control again, but it seems like just a matter of time before she reverts to her old ways of bad wigs, plastic surgery and TMI Twitter posts.Tags: actresses, under 30
Uh, oh. Kylie Jenner is bored. She is sooooo sick of reading about how terrible her fake lips look and would appreciate it if we could all please talk about something new. Kylie went on a bit of a Twitter rant and this is what she has to say about all the talk about her new lips:
“how long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao…Let’s get a our lives together guys and talk about some important shit. Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.”
Now let me take another selfie, showcasing how ridiculously large my plastic surgeon made my lips and post it all over the internet. Again. Anddddd again and again andagainandagain…
And in case you forgot what 17-year old Kylie Jenner looked like before having plastic surgery, here ya go:
So there you have it Kylie, the reason that everyone is talking about the shocking amount of plastic surgery that you had before you are even old enough to buy a cigarette, is because you looking fucking ridiculous. And for whatever reason you think you look pretty and feel the need to plaster selfies of your new face all-the-fuck over the place in a desperate cry for attention.Tags: teenagers, under 20
Europe has a new popular cosmetic surgery on the rise: repairing stretched earlobes. Huh!? Ever seen a punkster walking around with giant round holes at the bottom of their earlobes? The piece of jewelry that fills out the perimeter of this hole is known as a plug. But just because someone goes through the pain of obtaining plugs in their youth, doesn’t mean they are going to want big holes in their ears forever.
Especially when you take into consideration what stretched earlobes look like when the plugs are removed…
Insert plastic surgeon Adrian Richards and many people have a second chance at a new set of ears, sans holes. Dr. Richards has crafted a way to repair stretched earlobes in as little as 30 minutes. Patients are placed under local anesthetic and charged around $2,900 for both ears. Dr. Richards has no shortage in patients seeking the operation, and he performs about 10 of these ear correction surgeries each month.
Dr. Richards sees people from all walks of life, he’s repaired the ears of a golf professional that wasn’t allowed to tour on the PGA with stretched earlobes. He has also helped a former punk rock band member look more suited to his current career as a teacher. And just recently, a solider came to Dr. Richard’s office wanting reconstructive surgery on his ears after his commanding officer informed him that internal guidelines prohibited ear tunnels larger than 2cm.
Despite the bad reputation stretched earlobes carry, they are a popular fashion trend for punk rockers and rebels going for a more ‘grunge’ look. The process isn’t easy, and it can also be rather painful.
A Hawaiian man by the name Kala Kaiwi (pictured below) holds the world record for the largest earlobe holes at 10cm—that’s large enough to fit a fist through!
Ear stretching takes time and dedication, and includes slowly expanding your ear by inserting larger sized plugs every few weeks. Once the hole measures 1.5cm in diameter, your ear will never again regain its original shape. Overtime this creates an extremely unattractive appearance where the earlobe skin unnaturally sags when plugs are removed.
Yet after all of this hard work, many people with stretched earlobes grow up and enter the real world, only to realize their stretched ears are no longer so cool. It isn’t easy to snag a job with huge holes in your ears, just ask 24-year-old Luke Clark, a recent college graduate interviewed by The Guardian. Clark admits he couldn’t land a job, and he quickly realized his issue might be the unattractive holes in his earlobes.
Dr. Richards fixes saggy earlobes by removing excess skin and then stitching the ear back together using melt-away stitches. He claims that the procedure is fairly straightforward and requires little down time. He says, “The main discomfort is from the anesthetic, which lasts about 10 seconds…. Dressings come off after a week, and that’s it really.”Tags: earlobes, trends
At 34-years old Justin Jedlica has already undergone over 120 cosmetic surgeries; as a result he literally looks like a human Ken doll. His house actually looks like the sort of place you’d except to find Barbie and Ken hanging out as well, but Mr. Jedlica doesn’t consider himself perfectly plastic just yet.
On the Botched reunion show, Justin admits he already has another surgery he’d like to undergo. Apparently the veins on his forehead, which he refers to as “Julia Roberts veins” are causing him a lot of angst and he’d like to have them removed.
When Justin Jedlica first appeared on Botched, Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nassif both agreed they were interested in him as a person, but not on operating on him. When the doctors made a house call to his LA mini-mansion they were greeted by a male butler wearing nothing but panties, and it only got stranger from there. After Justin showed off his self-created implants, he asked the doctors to grant him lat, ab, and calf implants.
Maybe it had something to do with Justin referring to the docs as “glorified tailors” but they politely declined, warning Justin that he’s incredibly lucky nothing has gone terribly wrong so far with so many surgeries under his cosmetically altered belt. And perhaps now was the time to slow it down, while he was still ahead.
Not so fast says Justin, who feels his luck is not about to run out. After all, his homemade implants are already inserted throughout his body. Justin’s arms, legs, face, chest, almost every part of him has some sort of implant or alteration. And he’s not done yet!
On the Botched reunion show, scheduled to air this week, the world renowned doctors warn Justin once again about his most recent pursuit of perfection, tampering with the veins in his forehead. Dr. Dubrow explains how these veins are directly connected to the eyes and “if a blood clot forms in those you could go blind. That’s a real risk.”
Apparently Justin firmly believes in the motto: no pain, no gain.
Perhaps losing his eyesight would be the best thing for him, at least than he couldn’t pick himself apart all day! Although this would leave him jobless, he currently spends his days consulting individuals on the best plastic surgery options for them.
Some might argue Justin is removing the wrong type of vein, and instead needs to rethink his vain personality. But each to his or her own, Justin is a unique person on a unique mission.
Judging by the concern in the Botched doctors’ comments, it’s clear that neither Dr. Dubrow nor Dr. Nassif will be the ones performing Justin’s vein-removal surgery. I’m sure Justin can find someone else hungry for money and willing to give his latest plastic surgery ideas a go. And if no doctor is willing to perform the risky surgery, chances are the human Ken-doll may simply take matters into his own hands—and that’s hardly a joke.Tags: over 30
Being a fan of Selena Gomez is easy, she’s gorgeous, seemingly sweet, plus she can act and sing really well. Still, after the ongoing antics with Justin Bieber some fans have jumped off the Selena bandwagon. But has she really turned to Kris Jenner to keep her career on the uphill?
The forging of a new partnership? Kris Jenner and Selena Gomez snap a selfie together
Earlier this year, Selena kicked her own mother to the curb, firing her from the position of manager. And while her official manager is Aleen Keshishian of Brillstein Entertainment Partners, some rumors suggest that Kris Jenner is stepping in as the new momager.
Rumors say that Kris has been telling Selena that she needs to shape up and obtain a nice firm six-pack. She has even gone as far as to sign her up for Barry’s Bootcamp—a program big-booty Kim does regularly. She has also reportedly been throwing out tips about plastic surgery, hair color, and fashion. Causing some of Selena’s truest fans to shout, “SAY IT AINT SO!”
Selena and Kris have been spotted out and about together more than a few times
While Selena and Kris are apparently close and Kris may be giving the Disney doll some tips, she is not Selena’s official manager by any means. Manager or not, Selena’s loyal fans are wondering just how much influence the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s tiger mom has on her.
For starters, perhaps Selena’s newfound friendship with Kris has something to do with the fact Justin Bieber and Kendall Kardashian have been spotted hanging out multiple times over the years. Maybe she’s making such close ties with Mama Kardashian in order to interfere with Justin’s questionable relationship with her daughter. After all, let’s admit it, girls (and guys) will go to all types of measures when obsessing over an on and off again ex.
The Kardashian’s might be incredibly famous but Selena almost seems “too good” for them—you know what I mean? She rightfully earned her fame with talent and hard work, not sex tapes and a reality show similar to a train-wreck, so wild you can’t look away. Yet, no one doubts the Kardashian’s taste in style, or ability to stay on the cover of every magazine year after year.
But gorgeous Selena really doesn’t need any of their tips, she does a great job all on her own. Regardless, we can only hope that Kris Jenner doesn’t convince Selena to get loads of butt implants, early Botox, and film a sex tape with Biebs, I can just hear it now, “But it worked wonders for my daughters!”
On Monday Renee Zellweger hit Elle Magazine’s 21st Annual Women in Hollywood event, and well, she just doesn’t look like the same ol’ Renee Zellweger that fans remember! The internet has been abuzz with rumors of over zealous plastic surgery and while Renee hasn’t addressed the plastic surgery question directly, she has responded by saying that she is glad that people think that she looks different now.
Renee attended the Women in Hollywood event with her boyfriend, musician Doyle Bramhall II, wearing a black dress, minimal makeup and an easy hairstyle. Looking happy and carefree, the 45-year old actress admits that she is currently in the best place of her life at the moment and hints at recovering from past issues.
According to Renee:
“I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows…My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”
While a healthy new lifestyle may play a part in Renee’s new look, we think that plastic surgery has also come into play in her transformation. Although it doesn’t appear that Renee has had any work done recently, the eyelift that she got last year, completely changed the actress’s face.
