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.

Yet Donovan, an unemployed graphic designer and mother of 3-year-old Mason, did exactly that, having plastic surgery on her arms, chin, jowls and flanks (she calls them “woman handles”) and a breast lift before walking down the aisle to greet longtime love John for a dream wedding paid for by the production.
For Donovan, who beat nine competitors — including conniving runner-up Janessa Wainwright — her post-surgical suffering was nothing compared with the celebrity-style wedding the show bankrolled.
