Housewives Surgery Secrets
Which Real Housewives have gone under the knife?
Nipped, tucked, reconstructed and Botoxed — just some of the many alternatives stars have taken to achieving eternal youth.

Plastic surgery continues to be a tricky topic in Hollywood, with celebs often denying having any work done to enhance their image.

While some stars remain dedicated to aging gracefully, others have learned to love cosmetic enhancements, even opening up about their decisions to go under the knife (or needle) — all for the price of beauty.

Most recently, Kelly Ripa admitted to using Botox in an interview with ELLE.

“Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes,” said the 42-year-old mom of three. (via ABC News)  “So I feel like it makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now.”

On the other hand, stars like Kathy Griffin undergo more drastic procedures, such as liposuction, the devastating results of which she featured in her 2009 biography, Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin.

“It is embarrassing,” Griffin says. Still, she maintains, “I want women to know that this is what lipo looks like. Like, are you sure you don’t want to just work out a little more?”

But, despite her liposuction debacle, Griffin has no regrets.

“I work in an industry where if you don’t get a little nip and tuck, a lady of my age is going to end up playing Katie Holmes‘s great-grandmother in the Dawson’s Creek reunion. I’m never going to be Halle Berry, but I want to look as good as I can,” she told People in 2003.
