Getting up there in age
Plastic surgery isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Take Priscilla Presley. The once beautiful woman had a facelift that left her looking like she’s standing behind a B-52 engine at take-off. I almost didn’t recognize her when I saw her on an episode of Oprah. If her daughter hadn’t been with her, I’m not sure I would have put two and two together. Sometimes you can go too far.
Who has aged gracefully? Michelle Pfeiffer. I swear the woman still looks like she’s 35 when she’s actually 54. Wouldn’t mind aging like her and from all accounts, she hasn’t had anything done. Talk about great genes!
I know we’re supposed to be talking about women who’ve aged well . . . or not. But in a nod to the Olympics, I have two words. Bruce Jenner. I swear, his ears are on his cheeks he’s been so tucked and tightened. He’s a walking advertisement for what not to do to your face. Like Priscilla Presley, his mouth is drawn into a taut line and he blinks and his scalp moves. I’m old enough to remember when he won the decathlon in 1976 and at the time, he was the Olympic hotty of the games. Now that he’s been relegated to the Kardasian stepfather, he looks more like a billboard for don’t let this happen to you.
I’m not anti-paint and body work. I like my botox and I’ve had a lid lift. Nothing major though and I’d be a little afraid to get any of that done. The last thing I want to do is look like Priscilla. Too bad I have a bad gene pool. But maybe with enough moisturizer I can make it to the end without a major overhaul.
So if you could have anything done, what would it be?
