Say hello to a plastic surgery commercial stirring up … controversy. But is the ad actually controversial — or not? I’m not entirely sure what the deal is, but it sounds like this commercial for Park Avenue Smart Lipo ran as an actual ad on Gawker last week. According to another sponsored post featuring the commercial that ran on Gawker today, “some readers of our sister site Jezebel were outraged by it, and the post was pulled after an hour.” So, this is a commercial, a paid spot, claiming that the commercial itself is controversial, which would increase views of the commercial. So, real controversy, or not? I am not entirely clear what the controversy would be, other than the women are asking the men what the men think of various parts of the women’s bodies and such. Which I guess is controversial. If you want it to be. And Park Avenue Smart Lipo sure does. What have we learned here? PASL FTW. [Gawker] Keep reading »

In news that should be a shock to absolutely no one, Kim Kardashian is now ready to admit that her picture-perfect look is not totally natural, and we’re not talking about concealer and beauty products here. So far, no scalpels have come near her body, but she’s dabbled with Botox:
“I’m totally not against plastic surgery. I’ve tried Botox before. That’s the only thing that I’ve done. I’ve never had my nose done. What’s funny about my nose, it’s my biggest insecurity. I always want to get my nose done. I went to the doctor, I had them take the pictures, he showed me what it would look like and it just didn’t — I wouldn’t look the same.”

You know how everyone in the universe basically agrees that Jennifer Grey’s nose job was the worst decision she ever made, because it changed the look of her entire face and no one recognized her anymore, even though she played Baby in “Dirty Dancing”? That is the way I feel about my beloved NeNe Leakes’ new nose. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star — and I do mean STAR — was so beautiful the way she was! Whyyyyy did she have to go get her nose chipped away to oblivion?! Ugh. [Young, Black & Fabulous] Keep reading »
