Botox - The Rumor Mill
A look at the rampant rumors going around about who has had Botox, from those who won't confess, to those who do.
You knew it had to happen. Eventually the whole world would be looking at every Hollywood star and trying to figure out the one burning question in the back of their mind, "Did she or didn't she?" or, he as the case may be. We of course are referring to the stars who have gone and gotten themselves a bit of Botox injected into their faces.
While none of the rumors can be confirmed, except by the few stars who have actually admitted to having Botox injections, these rumors are still flying around the Internet and magazines. Some may surprise you. Others, you probably would have bet your life that they were getting pumped up.
We'll start the rumor mill off with probably two of the hottest stars today because of the show "Desperate Housewives". We're of course referring to the very hot Nicolette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher. In an actual interview, Hatcher admits to having had some work done on her face. She said, and I quote, "In the past I've had Botox and collagen". She then went on to deny that she and Nicolette Sheridan have had any plastic surgery and didn't know if Sheridan had had Botox injections. Sheridan herself would not offer any comment but if you take a good look at her face, as many plastic surgery experts have pointed out, and compare it to her days on Knots Landing, it is painfully obvious that she has had work done on her face and most likely has had Botox as well.
Hatcher went on to say that she stopped the Botox injections, not for any health reasons but simply because she finally decided to let herself age naturally. She said that the last time she had an injection was over a year ago.
Another big name in the rumor mill is Cher. She has always publicly admitted to having work done on her face as well as many other parts of her body. However, she admits to some surgeries but when asked about other surgeries she denies them. As for Botox, she has never actually said she has or hasn't. The question probably just never came up.
Of course, one of the most famous names in history for plastic surgery is Joan Rivers. She is one of the few people who has admitted to having so much work done on her face and her body that she incorporates jokes about these procedures into her comedy routine. She has made Botox a running joke in her life and it has paid off.
The men are not exempt from the Botox craze. Ryan Seacrest, it has been reported, has been forbidden by doctors to have anymore Botox treatments for certain undisclosed health reasons. These reports have not been confirmed but they are all over the Internet.
And the list of stars goes on and on. Famous celebrities on the rumor mill also include Sylvester Stallone, Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna and Phyllis Diller.
With millions of people getting these shots each year, according to statistics, somebody is getting them and let's face it, some of these people shouldn't be looking as good as they do.
