1. I’m 15 and for the first time in my life, a teacher calls me out on sleeping in class when I’ve been awake the whole time. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened earlier, because kids have made fun of my eyes since preschool. Times are a-changing I guess. I’m the only Asian in my class, one…

Eek: Woman Busted For Performing Unlicensed “Vampire Facelifts”

It’s scary how often nowadays you read about some quack getting arrested for performing plastic surgery procedures without a license.

Why Julianne Moore Won’t Be Getting Plastic Surgery

“My feeling is live and let live. But some of those procedures that make you look younger — I don’t know that they really made anybody look younger. I think most of the time they made you look like you’ve had something done to your face. Even with the laser stuff, the skin becomes so…

Did Bristol Palin Get Plastic Surgery?

Did Bristol Palin get plastic surgery with her babysitting abstinence-preaching money? It looks like someone’s got a new face! In these new pics, Bristol Palin’s face looks slimmer and more heart-shaped while her chin and cheekbones are more defined, giving her an admittedly more “generic Disney star” look. Very “High School Musical” instead of “Tee…

Girl Talk: My Bikini Waxer Suggested I Get Liposuction

I am a hairy person. Think of the hairiest person you know, then think hairier. Think “Harry and the Hendersons” hairy. Anytime I am within a tongue depressor’s distance of an aesthetician, they find something new to wax. (This is how I learned the hard way that upper-lip waxing is not something you should agree…

Amy Winehouse’s Breasts Aren’t The Only Body Parts To Get Plumped

Amy Winehouse was spotted leaving a doctor’s office, and don’t her lips look a little fuller? I’m so happy she’s taking an interest in her appearance now, but maybe she should hold off on all the cosmetic surgery before she develops another addiction. [London, 11/5/09]…

To Bag Or Not To Bag George Clooney

I love being a woman, but there are plenty of things I envy about the opposite sex, too. The whole standing up when they pee thing is pretty convenient (as are their short lines for public bathrooms!), but what’s especially nice for guys is how well they age. Let’s face it, appearance-wise, women tend to…
