Bravo to her! She does look so much better. Believe she had a nose job too.

Nothing hypocritical about it. Those were the facts of life and she did what was necessary to have the best chance of succeeding in her chosen career. Oprah's hairstyles over the years have served the same function. Nothing "natural" about most of them. And how many Jewish American women have sought to appear more "princess-like" with a surgical adjustment to the old schnozolla.

That was great of her to admit and even show her pics! Based on the headline I was quick to judge she's a sell out, but she's pointing something out and bringing attention to her experience. Wonderful.
