Lisa Rinna Got a Bit Too Cheeky

In a new interview with parenting site MomLogic, jumbo-lipped actress Lisa Rinna talks candidly about her facial-feature enhancing woes and her upcoming stint in Playboy.

“I had Juvederm put in my cheeks. That’s what I overdid—big time,” Lisa, 45, admits. “I tried it because my girlfriends did it. I thought: I’ll do it! I saw a photo and I was like, ‘Oh Jesus. That’s no good. That’s NOT good.'”

It’s not the first time Rinna has spoken out about the overzealous packing of her face with Juvederm. In November she told Us that she’d learned the error of her cosmetic surgery ways after being shocked by a photo of herself.

“What I learned is that I don’t really need it,” Rinna continues with MomLogic. “You get older and insecure and you think you need it and you don’t. I learned less is more. Keep your skin good.

“But, I still like Botox. It’s great! It doesn’t change the shape of my face. When you change your face, you don’t look like yourself. Looking fresher is one thing. I look like a freak!”

Freakishness aside, the onetime Melrose Place star is slated to appear sans clothing in the pages of Playboy soon.

“[Posing] can be a way of expressing yourself and your sexuality. You can control it and control your image,” Lisa explains. “I view sexuality in a different way. It doesn’t mean you’re a victim. Doing this can be a strong and powerful choice.”

And as for her ’90s gig on Melrose Place, she says she’d jump at the opportunity to appear on the upcoming re-tooled modern version of the show set to air in the 2009-2010 season.

“That was my favorite show I’ve ever done. I loved that show,” says Rinna. “I loved playing Taylor.”

Fans of the actress can catch her on the TV Guide Channel this Sunday, doing red carpet coverage with Joey Fatone at the Golden Globe Awards.

The author of Celebrity Cosmetic Surgery, the most popular blog by a plastic surgeon in the country, says 

2009 will bring with it a plethora of new extreme, bizarre, and unusual plastic surgeries. 2008 brought us such plastic surgery oddities as cosmetic leg lengthening, the G Shot, the Boob Jab, and the Acupuncture Facelift. I expect fringe medical practitioners to do the same in 2009. Can we expect to see actual rib removal to thin the body, removal of the omentum (fat around the intestines) to decrease a protuberant tummy, or tummy tucks performed at the time of C-sections?  Not by me!
