Bad Ideas: Beef Fat Is Not A Botox Replacement, Ladies

We all want smooth skin, am I right? But ladies, the key to getting it is not — most definitely not — injecting beef fat into your face. That’s exactly what Janet Hardt, of Homewood, Illinois, did, thinking that injecting beef fat into her face would mimic the effects of Botox. Instead, she ended up with a face full of hot, sweaty fat. Hardt was rushed to the hospital complaining that her face felt like it was burning, and died shortly after arrival. An autopsy revealed, however, that she actually died from peritonitis, which somehow wasn’t related. Either way, lay off the beef fat, mm’kay? [Chicago Sun-Times] Keep reading »

11 Reasons I’ll Never Get Botox Again

I thought Botox would change my life. I admired the shiny, perfect foreheads of my elders on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” (or New York, New Jersey, D.C. and Miami, for that matter) and wished that I too could include myself in the natural-but-not club. I’m 28 and definitely the only one in my small-town Indiana family to even consider Botox. I thought it was a necessary form of torture–some sun damage from a few years back had left its mark in the form of noticeable (probably only to me?) horizontal lines across my forehead. It wasn’t quite as if someone drew on my face with eyeliner, but it bothered me. So with the help of a Lifebooker special for $179, I took the plunge before a trip to Jamaica where I intended to do a little more sun damage.

And here’s why I won’t ever do it again. Keep reading »

Quickies: “Botox Mom” Says She Was Lying & Rashida Jones In Lingerie For “GQ”

  • Kerry Campbell, the mother who said she gave her her eight-year-old daughter Botox so she could compete in beauty pageants, now claims she made everything up. In fact, she says her name isn’t even Kerry Campbell! A woman named Sheena Upton claims she is an actress who was offered $200 by The Sun, a tawdry British tabloid, to “play the role of Kerry Campbell” for an article. Upton/Campbell’s daughter was removed from her home by Child Protective Services, then returned after the girl was examined by doctors.

Mother Gives 8-Year-Old Daughter Monthly Botox

Being a stage mom is bad enough. But being a stage mom wielding a needle to give your 8-year-old daughter Botox injections every three months? Well, that is just straight up insane. Beautician Kerry Campbell does this to daughter Britney, a beauty pageant enthusiast, and defends her actions saying she is actually a responsible parent. “What I am doing for Britney now will help her become a star. I know one day she will be a model, actress or singer, and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer,” she says. “More mothers should do it for their daughters… I wish that I’d had the same advantages when I was younger.”

Please, please, please stop the insanity. But it gets worse. Keep reading »
