Reality Stars Who Should Have Stayed Away From Plastic Surgery and "Cosmetic" Procedures

It’s Just Not a Good Look: 15 Bad Plastic Surgery Jobs On Reality Stars!

Photo: RHS/

The pressures of Hollywood are hard to cope with sometimes. You have to be one of the beautiful people or you’re a nobody…or so these Reality TV stars thought. They underwent cosmetic procedures to stay or become beautiful, but as you’ll see on this list, they probably should have left well enough alone. The following reality TV stars would’ve been better off embracing their aging looks rather than forcing youthfulness.

1. Elsa Patton (Real Housewives of Miami)

The 80-year-old Cuban mother of Real Housewives of Miami cast member Marysol Patton underwent far too many surgeries in her lifetime. One doctor in particular botched her surgery and caused the face we see today, leaving her looking more like a muppet than a woman, which, we’re guessing is not what she went in for.

2. Big Ang (Mob Wives/Big Ang)

Former Mob Wives cast member Big Ang loves the lavish life and plastic surgery. This firecracker has no problem admitting that she’s had a tummy tuck, liposuction, her lips injected with 5 vials of collagen at once, and her breasts done three times! Now, at a 36 J, her boobs are scary large and her lips are just…scary.

3. Lisa Hochstein (Real Housewives of Miami)

The self-proclaimed “professional housewife”and former Playboy model is married to Miami plastic surgeon (obviously!) Dr. Leonard Hochstein, who is known as “The Boob God.” All in all, her cosmetic surgery really isn’t that bad. She looks like any normal 45-year old woman would after getting a nose job, botox, and what appears to be lip injections. Wait, she’s 29? Uh…

4. Taylor Armstrong (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)

Taylor hasn’t had a lot of work done, thankfully, but she does get routine botox and filler injections as seen on an episode of  The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She also confesses that she got lip implants back when she was in her 20’s. Kudos to her for the minimal plastic surgery, but her lips look like they belong on Mrs. Potato Head.

5. Bruce Jenner

The 63-year-old Olympic gold medalist and stepfather to the Kardashian brood underwent a partial face lift and nose job back in ’98. When Bruce appeared for the first time on the hit reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians his plastic surgery made him the butt of many jokes by the media. In 2010, Kim Kardashian blogged that he had undergone a second facelift to correct the first.


6. Sharon Osbourne


The soft-voiced, outspoken, mama Osbourne has admitted to loving plastic surgery in the past. She’s told the public that she has had various parts of her body lifted, tucked, and implanted but it’s her face that has us worried. The America’s Got Talent  judge said she has had a face-lift, a brow-lift, and some lip and face injections, but now says that she will never get another procedure done because her face has started to look plastic. We agree. Is it better to look your age or better to look like you’ve obviously had a lot of work done?

7. Dwight Eubanks (Real Housewives of Atlanta)


The outspoken celebrity hairstylist and former cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has a look that can only be described as…feminine. He’s one of the few people who would elect to get a Jackson-family-style nose job. And is it us, or does he straight up have that Cicely Tyson swag going on?


8. Tori Spelling

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star, who currently has her own reality show called Tori and Dean, had a pretty screwy breast augmentation. We’re not really sure what happened but there’s a strange indentation on her left boob. Freaky!


9. Adrienne Maloof -Nassif (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)

The daughter of a billionaire, Adrienne never had to worry about money, but as it turned out, she didn’t need it anyway, not for her plastic surgery at least. The 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was married to plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, and it’s not hard to tell. She’s had botox fillers, a nose job, and a possible brow lift. The two are newly divorced, but she’ll always have her face to remember him by.

10. Marysol Patton  (Real Housewives of Miami)

Marysol, who is the daughter of Elsa Patton (whom you saw at the top of the slideshow) and the owner of her own premier PR firm, sports a pretty rigid face on The Real Housewives of Miami.  She says she hasn’t had any cosmetic surgery, but we say, ‘don’t play yourself, Mary.’ Dr. Nassif (yes the plastic surgeon ex-hubby of Adrienne Maloof-Nassif) has remarked that Patton appears to have had “a browlift and rhinoplasty, lip augmentation which was a bit overdone, Botox, and facial fillers.” She should quit while she’s still ahead.

11.Heather DuBrow (Real Housewives of Orange County)

Photo: FayesVision/

Here is yet another Real Housewives star married to a plastic surgeon and claims she hasn’t had any cosmetic surgery. Perhaps she hasn’t had any “surgery,” but botox and fillers–which she admits to–are cosmetic procedures; so, we’ll say it’s just a game of semantics with these ladies. All those procedures just makes her look more rigid and harder than she needs to be.


12. Danielle Staub (Real Housewives of New Jersey)


The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star is looking a bit over-processed, much like several of her Housewives counterparts on this list. Though she claims she hasn’t had any plastic surgery– just botox– it looks as though she’s had a brow lift and lip injections as well. Also, news flash to ALL the REAL Housewives, Botox and fillers have to be performed by a cosmetic surgeon, therefore, they ARE cosmetic surgeries! Fine, they’re “procedures,” if we’re being technical, but really these ladies are just trying to save face by making the distinction. “Save face.” See what we did there?

13.Pete Burns

Photo: Lia Toby /

The “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” singer (from 80’s band Dead or Alive) has undergone multiple surgeries and injections in his face for over a decade. His overblown bubble lips were the result of a lip implant procedure gone wrong, and the negligence of the surgeon whom he later sued. He has had to get corrective surgery to fix that botched surgery on top of all the other surgery he already had! Wow. But his tranny appearance is ALL him. In spite of his evident facial woes, the former contestant of Celebrity Big Brother 2006 has said that he will continue to buy himself a new face like people buy themselves a sofa. Again, we say, WOW.


14. Joan Rivers


The comedian and TV personality has had so many cosmetic surgeries we couldn’t even count them. The funny thing is, while she’s barely recognizable from her original self, she’s been this way for so long we doubt anyone even remembers what she used to look like. And even at her age (she’s 78) she still gets surgery done as what she feels is a necessity in Hollywood. Viewers can see that for themselves during an episode of her reality show Melissa and Joan on E!

15. Tamar Braxton (The Braxton Family Values)

Photo: Nikki Nelson /

Tamar Braxton says she’s only ever had a nose job (several, in fact) to fix her nose since she was born without cartilage in it, but there’s definitely some other cosmetic enhancements going on here.  Tamar looks to have had some– and by “some” we mean “many”–botox and filler injections in her face. In fact, all the Braxton sisters on The Braxton Family Values look like they’ve been dipping into the Botox pool. Look, if there’s anything we’ve learned from this slideshow is that Botox is BAD, kids. Don’t fill your face; it is a cosmetic procedure, and it doesn’t look good! EVER. Not the way these stars have abused used it, at least.

  • That lacefront Tamar is wearing doesn’t help her appearance much at all

    • Kek

      LOL. My thinking as well.

    • at first glance i thought adrienne maloof was tamar…wow!

    • weissgirl

      the sad part about all the women featured here in the segment, they are wearing war paint. We joke about the makeup from the 80’s, if it wasn’t for the hair and clothing clearing dictating them from the now.

      • janisofny


      • Alan Dombrowsky

        The sad part about your posts is nobody knows wtf you’re talking about, grammer and spelling matters. English, speak it please.

        • Art

          Says the goof who doesn’t know how to spell grammar.

          • Stephanie Alexis

            ahahahaha!!! right?

  • Pifoot

    Most of these are “Real Housewives” (which they aren’t) and I don’t consider them celebrities, either. And a rather high ratio are married to plastic surgeons. What, they couldn’t find any wives of plumbers or engineers to be on the show? I

  • CriticXtreme

    The white ones, I could care less about. It’s a fact that they don’t age well. It’s the black women who want to look like them and be accepted by them. Black women who eff with their faces never fair well from the results. The either look like old black jews, chinese, japanese, muppets. It’s like they will take anything as long as it’s not black. I can’t stand the fake hair, it smells, it’s not you and makes you bald. And to you who wears this korean wear, you know that you would never ever be with a man wearing a wig or toupee. And when you take your beautiful black faces from royalty to fakery, this is self hate and not improvement as you say, when the truth to matter is that you would rather look like a muppet then be black. You’re acting Napoleon when he rode up on the Sphinx in Giza. When he saw the face was of an African, he did his own type of plastic surgery by blowing off the nose and lips making it what you see today.

    • Excellent point!! Yeah whites say they hate our full lips, complexion, etc. and they in turn get surgery to look like us, and most Blacks trying to look like them by getting nose jobs, bleaching, etc.. Crazy.Where was NE NE Leakes? New York? and other sisters destroying themselves?

    • lmao dam yo

    • You made my day. Thank you!!

    • Nonya

      What an incredibly ignorant comment. First off, it’s “I COULDN’T care less.” To say that you could care less, means that you care!!!!! Save your stupid, racist comments for your friends over drinks. You wouldn’t appreciate it if someone said that they couldn’t care less about the black women. Don’t do to others what you would be belly aching about if done to you. NO, I’m not white. Just fed up with stupidity.

    • fraulein

      Forget to mention. It is NOT A FACT that white women don’t age well. THAT IS ONLY YOUR OPINION AND THAT’S ALL IT IS.

      • Alan Dombrowsky

        White girls don’t age well though, the reason I think is that their skin gets leathery from lack of pigment or too much tanning. Especially without make up some of these girls i’ve seen look 40 and they are a few years out of high school, smoking doesn’t help either (cigs). On the other hand i’ve seen asian girls in their 40s and thought they were still in high school. It’s not racist if it’s true, I think it’s just harder for white girls to keep their skin healthy due to genetics. Yes races DO differ genetically like it or not, hispanics and blacks susceptible to sickle cell and diabetes, white girls age badly, asians get bad ear wax (fact, they have ear cleaners that make house calls it is so bad). People need to learn the difference between facts and opinions, it is what it is.

        • Cleareye

          My lady is 67 and looks far better than any of these women and has done nothing other than take care of herself.

      • plum82

        NOT A FACT…..depends on genes….i’m in my 80’s and some think i’m in my 70’s !!!!!!!!!! NO WRINKLES !!!!!!

      • Sarah Thomas

        Too true, I am white and am 26 I get that I look 17 still! I get carded everywhere, I do not smoke or do drugs blah blah. I simply call it the “young” gene, my sister and I are both this way and she is 30 now. And yes tanning adds to the aging process, I don’t go out in the sun much.

    • jcolson1027

      You’re an idiot!

    • Lin

      I am white and I was still getting carded when I was 50, so people like me blow your comment away that white women don’t age well. That is not true in many cases. It just depends on how people, of any race, treat themselves.

    • Cleareye

      Tell that to Michael Jackson.

  • For Tori Spelling, you need to do a little research. She has a condition called pectus
    excavatum which leaves an indent in the chest. She’s had it forever.
    It’s not a botched boob job. You’d think places like these would need
    to do SOME research, I just had to google it. It took me, literally,
    less than 20 seconds to find out what it was called. You can’t find 20
    seconds to keep yourself from looking like morons?

    • weissgirl

      she has only mention this in the pass.

      • janisofny

        is English not your first language? I never understand your posts.

        • youngpro

          is logic not your first subject?

        • Bev Ward-Badger

          she meant, I think, that she has mentioned this in the past.

    • SexyJodi

      It’s too late for you I’m afraid.

    • Skiltz1

      What are you a self-appointed apologist for Tori Spelling and other full time associates of the “born ugly squad?” This woman, and others of her cast, should give up on trying to look like gentile women. They’ll never make the grade and they should give up on trying to perform the impossible.

      • gritsngravy418

        @Skiltz1……You must be an ABSOLUTE knockout, maybe even a lookalike for Marilyn Monroe, Cindy Crawford, Jackie Kennedy or even Princess Dianna..OR if you’re a guy, Robert Redford, Tom Cruise….What are you? A member of the ‘Beautiful People’ ? You should be ASHAMED of yourself…I’ll tell you one thing and I do NOT even know Tori Spelling, but odds are, she has MORE empathy than you EVER will….SHAME ON YOU!!!!

  • Tina

    Botox & fillers can be done by any type of physician. Dermatologist commonly do cosmetic procedures.

    • danajoym

      Doesn’t have to be a physician.

  • 36????!!!! Are you joking? She looks like she at LEAST in her 50s!!! WOW!

    • Her breasts are 36J, I thought the same too because they put a space.

  • she looks like the devil lol

  • sara

    Big Ang is only 36?! She looks way older.

    • Nicolet75

      Carla is 36 and is the youngest, so big ang has to be like 45 at the youngest!

      • gritsngravy418

        @Sara…. Yes and in my dreams, I’m STILL 16….LOL

    • DillPickleMum

      36 J is her bra size!

      • gritsngravy418

        @dillpicklemum:disqus And Double AAA was what she was born with….Surely, she knows she looks SO ridiculous……I hope….

  • Jack

    Adrienne’s husband apparently got his revenge before the divorce. What I don’t get is the disparity. Some celebs have had plenty done (Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise) and yet you can’t really tell. Is it a matter of taking it slower, more small procedures, obviously more expensive but far more positive results.

  • Nonya

    Botox and filler do NOT have to be injected by a plastic surgeon. Nurses and Medical Assistants can do fillers and botox.

    • lmlq

      I’d never let a medical assistant (whatever that is) do a botox fill. A nurse yes, under the guidance of a doctor. The stuff is medicine and it does have serious, long-term effects. It’s called “cosmetic” in the sense of how most people use it but it is a powerful drug.

  • No

    I think that Joan looks great. Yes, plastic but so what? At her age she can do whatever she wants to do. Let it go already.

    • Sally

      She does look great

  • Minha Zavut

    How is Little Kim NOT on this list…

  • Jack_Reacher

    Some family member of Pete Burns needs to get this mentally ill moron locked up. What’s with the “I just got shot by a nail-gun” look? Is that what is holding that clown mask on?

    Give me a break. The Housewives of …… Need to change the title to the “House-Idiots of ….”

  • teriquajones

    I remember how Bruce Jenner looked at the time he won the Olympics. He was such a beautiful man. It’s unfortunate that he had work done to his perfect face.

  • weissgirl

    Big Ang, I can understand the 36J. For years I’ve been buying a 50D, a little snug but they fit. After my sister suggested going in and haven’t a bra made, that was the size the lady stated mine are. They are around the same size as Ang but mine are real, and I’ve hated them my entire life. It’s just hard finding shirts that fit that don’t look like I raided my grandmothers closet.

    • janisofny

      again, hard to understand what you are saying. 36J and 50D are hardly the same size. 36J is an average sized back and very large breasts. 50d is a very large back and average-sized breasts.

      • whattheheck

        can you leave here alone? damn!!!

    Jane Fonda needs to be on this list. Her plastic surgery wasn’t nearly as successful as she seems to think it was.

  • danajoym

    Botox and fillers don’t have to be done by a cosmetic surgeon. This writer is being a little harsh about a few of these people. Anything to make a point.

  • ImOld Greg

    Shaksmac, this article was SO POORLY written. How distasteful that you had to make all your snotty & rude comments. Report, don’t place you opinions in everything. NO ONE wants to read them!

  • Tasha89

    80% of premature aging is caused from the sun. There’s no such thing as “young genes” it’s all about how you take care of your skin. Washing your face, antioxidant serums, moisturizing, and using SPF. You need to reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours. Skincare is how you say looking young, no matter what your race.

  • Fudgee

    They should have just went to south korea and got it done. It would have looked very natural.

    You can look at Tori Spelling and only see she has an a collapsed breast? What about that uglylooking plastic face. Every single thing on her face has been done. She is absolutely scary. It really a tale of leave well enough alone or you may regret it. She should sue the surgeon who continued to do work on her.

  • Denise Clooney

    Maybe Tori Spelling has had a breast lump removed which caused the indent. I looked closely at the photo and I don’t notice an indent. She looks cute and healthy to me!

  • TikTok

    Did you really have touse the word such an ignorant word as “Tranny” for Pete Burns? Was Trans too long ? Or do you like to perpetuate the use of derogatory terms?

    Who in their right mind would transform themselves into a lion with down syndrome. Old, and wrinkled is a vastly superior look. It has to be mental illness to willingly disfigure yourself like that.

  • Cleareye

    A more hideous group would be hard to find. Maybe the “shoppers” at Walmart series?

  • frenchie

    Tori spelling looks like she got kicked in the face by a pack of mules and then got bad botched plastic surgery to try and correct it. They thought she said she wanted to look like a mule so they tried, they only did a half-ass job though! My apologies to the mules out there!
