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)
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?

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)

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.
