When the Real Housewives of Orange County first aired, nobody ever thought the Bravo program would become a franchise with housewives segments popping up to hit the airwaves in New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and now Beverly Hills. These women are made for TV because they embody normal everyday life to an extreme. Through embracing plastic surgery, talking about/showing their procedures, and maintaining lavish lifestyles for moms, it’s clear to address a common theme of the Real Housewives and compare the seasons with a plastic surgery scorecard.
The O. C. Housewives franchise can boast of:
Lauri Waring: cheek and breast implants, rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, possible face lift, Botox.
Tamra Barney: appeared in a video with her O.C. plastic surgeon talking about her breast implant revision. Tamra’s mother, Sandra Bake, had a face lift by the same plastic surgeon.
Jeana Keough: eventually became a spokesperson for a cellulite removal system.
Lynne Curtin: likely breast augmentation and Botox.
Viewers even followed one of a housewife’s teen daughter through a breast enlargement procedure.
Of the New York Housewives:
Bethenny Frankel, now 38, had breast augmentation and possibly, a breast lift. We know that because Beth appeared topless in a 1994 movie which clearly revealed large, but sagging breasts. Plastic surgeons in the Big Apple and L.A. also think Beth has had Botox or chemical peels and rhinoplasty.
Ramona Singer: thigh reduction, neck surgery and Botox.
Jill Zarin: regular Botox injections and breast implant reduction (32 G down to a 32D.)
In the Real Housewives of New Jersey:
Jacqueline Laurita: Botox, lip augmentation, possible breast implants.
Teresa Giudice: Breast augmentation, from an A to a C cup.
Danielle Staub: Breast enlargement – twice — with a bad outcome; Botox, lip enlargement, possible eyelid lift, cheek implants and removal of a cleft chin.
Dina Manzo: Breast implants which she wants removed.
Real Housewife TV star or not, most women are on a quest to put their best foot forward. Maintaining a diet routine, sticking to your beauty regime, and a rigorous workout schedule are all forms of self-improvement. It’s clear, all shows have a fair and consistent amount of plastic surgery and viewers will continue to tune in to see what’s next on their agenda.
