Botox mom now claims she made the whole thing up for money!

I don’t know what’s worse – her actually giving her daughter Botox, or her getting paid to LOOK like she gave her daughter Botox. Either way, she went on national TV with her daughter, and made herself look like a horrible mother. Was it really worth $200? That’s how much she claims The Sun paid her for the fake story. She also claims that ABC offered her $10,000 to tell her story. Is this the truth? More from TMZ:

The woman who went on “Good Morning America,” claiming she injected her 8-year-old daughter with Botox, now swears under oath … she made the entire story up for a few hundred bucks.

TMZ has obtained a sworn declaration written by Sheena Upton, who claims she was recently approached by the British tabloid, The Sun, and asked “to play the role of Kerry Campbell” for a story called “I Give My 8-Year-Old Daughter Botox.”

Upton now confesses The Sun paid her $200 adding, “I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview.”

After the story ran in The Sun, Upton says she was approached by “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition” and claims she was offered “a large fee” to appear on camera. She went on both shows and re-told her story.

After the interview, child welfare officials took Upton’s daughter away.

Upton now admits in her declaration, “The truth is I have never given my daughter Botox, nor allowed her to get any type of waxing, nor is she a beauty pageant contestant.”

Upton says professionals agree with her declaration, because on May 17, she took her daughter to the UCLA Medical Center and says, “After my daughter received a full medical exam, the results indicated that she has not ever received treatments including Botox or other such injections.”

We’re told the UCLA reports were forwarded to child welfare officials, who then returned Upton’s daughter to her, with the proviso that a cousin would stay with her and the child for the time being.

As for “Good Morning America” — sources connected with Upton claim she was promised $10,000 to appear. We do not know how much she was offered for “Inside Edition.”

As for the declaration — signed under penalty of perjury — we’re told Upton wrote it so her lawyer can secure full rights to custody of her daughter.

An ABC News insider tells TMZ, “There is no truth to the story about compensation, but they did pay a broker no more than $10,000 to license photos.”

Botox mom loses custody of her daughter!

I am happy to report that the mother who gives her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections AND waxes her legs and pubic area has LOST CUSTODY OF HER DAUGHTER. Amen and hallelujah!

The California mom who admitted to injecting her 8-year-old daughter with botox for a kiddie beauty pageant is now being investigated by the San Francisco Human Services Agency.

“It’s pretty unusual for a mom to be injecting an 8-year-old with botox and certainly is grounds for an investigation,” said Trent Rohrer of the San Francisco Human Services Agency.

Mom Kerry and daughter Britney, appeared on “Good Morning America” Thursday defending the 8-year-old pageant contestant’s use of botox.

“I just, like, don’t, like, think wrinkles are nice on little girls,” Britney said.

Britney admitted it hurt to get the injections on her face, but said she was used to the pain.

The admission sparked an uproar online, in the medical community and by child advocates.

Kerry told ABC News that she does not believe she’s endangering Britney’s health and that her daughter asked for the injections. Kerry, who asked that her family’s last name not be used, is a part-time aesthetician and no stranger to Botox herself, having done the treatment on her own face.

“Like I said, I do the botox myself. It’s safe,” Kerry said.

“She had watched me do it before,” said Kerry. “So when we first did it, she was fine with it.”

Kerry wouldn’t reveal who provides her with the Botox. Kerry typically administers the Botox to Britney through a total of five shots, in three different locations on her face.

And ABC news is reporting that this horrible mother has lost custody of her daughter.

ABC News has learned that a Bay Area mother, who was giving her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections, no longer has her child living in her home.

According to a source very close to the case, 8-year-old Britney Campbell is “doing well.”

Britney’s mother, Kerry Campbell, is being investigated by Child Protective Services. The Campbells were interviewed last week by ‘Good Morning America.’

Research Shows Plus-Sized Models Make Women Fat?

A new study out of the University of Bologna suggests that using plus-size models on the catwalk and in advertisements could make women fat. Say what?

PAUSE….. The university of BOLOGNA? Okay, back to the article.

From Huffington Post:

In their paper “Thinness and Obesity: A Model of Food Consumption, Health Concerns, and Social Pressure,” Dr. Davide Dragone and Dr. Luca Savorelli cite the relationships between Italy, Germany and Spain and their respective fashion communities to produce more plus-sized clothes and uphold a minimum size for models. They write:

When reading the content of the agreements, it is clear that both the government and the fashion industry agree that fashion is a powerful trend-setter. It not only influences what clothes, styles and colors are trendy, but also determines how a person should appear to be desirable.

Okay, so fashion is apparently super-influential. Dragone and Savorelli adds:

If people are underweight and stay on a diet, increasing the ideal body weight allows both aggregate welfare and health to be improved. If people are overweight and on a diet, however, increasing the ideal body weight can improve overall utility, but it worsens health because it induces people to become even more overweight.

And, “Given that in the US and in Europe people are on average overweight, we conclude that these policies, even when are welfare improving, may foster the obesity epidemic.”

The pair also said, according to the Daily Mail, in plain language, “To promote chubby fashion models when obesity is one of the major problems of industrialised countries seems to be a paradox. Everyone has to trade off in life a number of things like the pleasure of eating and going to the gym or something as a cost. So if you just fix the average healthy weight then maybe you will throw up some incentives to be thin.”

Um, so far, seeing plus-size models hasn’t made us any bigger. And watching size zero models lurch down the catwalk hasn’t made us any skinnier, either — if anything it’s made us simultaneously revolted and ravenous.
