Julie Chen reveals she underwent plastic surgery to look “less Chinese”


It’s secret week on The Talk this week. The hosts have been sharing their own personal secrets, and yesterday’s revelation from Julie Chen might take the cake for most shocking!

The 43-year-old Chinese-American co-host revealed that when she was beginning her career as a news anchor, she got plastic surgery to make her eyes look more American.

“My secret dates back to—my heart is racing—it dates back to when I was 25 years old and I was working as a local news reporter in Dayton, Ohio,” she said. “I asked my news director [if] over the holidays, if anchors want to take vacations, could I fill in? And he said, ‘You will never be on this anchor desk, because you’re Chinese.'”

“He said, ‘Let’s face it Julie, how relatable are you to our community? How big of an Asian community do we have in Dayton?'” she said. “‘On top of that, because of your Asian eyes, I’ve noticed that when you’re on camera, you look disinterested and bored.'”

“Well, fast forward, I’m like I need to get another job—if I can—so I start meeting with agents for career advice,” she said. “This one big-time agent basically told me the same thing. He said, ‘I cannot represent you unless you get plastic surgery to make your eyes look bigger.”

Chen talked the surgery over with her parents, who gave her their support. “After I had it done, the ball did roll for me, and I wondered, did I give in to the man? I have to live with every decision that I’ve made,” she said. “And it got me to where we are today. And I’m not going to look back.”

I think it’s pretty impressive she admitted it, and her eyes are obviously not the only thing she’s had tweaked. Her nose is much smaller than it used to be.

Patti Stanger says plastic surgery “saved my dating life”

Patti Stanger confesses that she has turned to plastic surgery to help boost her confidence in the dating scene. She helps others find true love on her Bravo show ‘Millionaire Matchmaker,’ but finding it herself took a bit longer.

“I had my first breast reduction and lift five years ago,” the 52-year-old tells this week’s issue of Life & Style. “Then I had another one. I felt skinny and young again!” Then in 2011, she went back in for a face-life, but, she recalls, “my doctor suggested an eye lift.” Afterward, she was a new woman: “I felt pretty and like I could go out, date and compete with all the young girls,” she says.

And it wasn’t long before Patti found her own man: mortgage broker David Krause. “When I met David, he thought I was younger than I was!” she raves of her tweaks. “He didn’t care, though, when he found out my real age.”

Plastic surgeries may have helped Patti’s confidence soar, but, she admits to Life & Style, it’s part of the business. “When you’re on TV, you have to do this. Anyone who says they don’t is lying.”

I guess whatever it takes to make a person feel better about themselves – is all that really matters. But it worries me when women go through such drastic measures to feel good about themselves.


Kim Kardashian shares picture of her face full of needles!

Kim Kardashian spent her Sunday getting acupuncture done. “Oh just relaxing….” Kim posted on Instagram

The 32-year-old reality star shared the painful-looking photo of herself with needles sticking out of her face.

What was the reason Kim was getting acupuncture done? Beauty reasons? Morning sickness?

Kim’s got a thing for unconventional beauty treatments. Recently the reality star underwent a vampire blood facial. The treatment includes injecting your own blood into your face. “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” Kardashian said.


PICS: Kim Kardashian gets a “blood facial”

Kim Kardashian has taken her beauty routine to a whole new level! The reality star went to a crazy extreme to achieve good skin on Sunday’s episode of ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami’.

Taking her BFF Jonathan Cheban’s advice, the 32-year-old underwent a “blood facial.”

For the procedure, doctors draw blood from the arm, spin out the platelets, and then re-apply the blood to the skin via tiny needles.

For the out-there procedure, doctors draw blood from the arm, spin out the platelets and then apply the blood onto the via tiny needles. “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” the now-pregnant Kim reasoned.

The experience may not have been worth it, however. “Oh my god! I will never get a facelift if it feels like that.” On Sunday, she tweeted a pic from the experience. “Look what @jonathancheban did to me!”

Here’s more from Huff Po:

The made-for-horror movie cosmetic procedure is gaining popularity in the U.S. because it’s an “organic alternative to those that require chemical injections,” according to Dr. Sam Lam, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon based in Dallas, Texas.

“The patient’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the skin preceded by a laser treatment and followed by a micro-needling process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes,” explains Dr. Lam. “The growth factors in the platelet rich plasma reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture.”

On the latest episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” she gives us an up-close view of the vampire facial. With her BFF Jonathan Cheban by her side, Kimmy can’t help but scream out over the agonizing buzzing of the laser: “Oww! That hurts so badly.”

Would you do a vampire facial??
