To say I was shocked seeing Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson post-plastic surgery is an understatement. After a chin implant, cartilage reconstruction in her nose, and fat injections in her cheeks -- the woman looks almost unrecognizable. On last night's Watch What Happens Live! Vicki finally revealed her new face and the reason behind her decision, saying a lot of people were calling her "Miss Piggy" and she wanted a change.
Watching her talk, it's ... interesting. To be real, it's kind of heartbreaking. While it's sad that a woman in her 50s still doesn't love herself, I think what's worse is that she felt so negative about her face that she wanted to completely change her look.
I don't think any other Housewife has ever gone this far.
First things first, let's watch Vicki respond to the criticism over her new look from "friends" Tamara and Gretchen:
I will agree with her a bit. Her face definitely looks a bit more settled now than it did in those pictures from the end of 2012 (top). However, I'm a firm believer that if you're going to go in for plastic surgery -- the goal shouldn't be to come out looking like another human being. The goal should be to come out still looking like yourself. I can't say that holds true for Vicki.
It really does break my heart that she was so unhappy with all the criticism that she felt like what she had wasn't good enough. And while I hope the Housewife is happier now, I pray none of her costars take after her example. In my eyes, going to these extremes is just going too far.
What do you think of Vicki's new face?
