The most uncomfortable moment during last night’s episode of Bravo’s Thintervention With Jackie Warner wasn’t this: (Brian, Stacy, and Shannon working the evening’s Pussycat Dolls dance-off event. But don’t get me wrong; this was embarrassing and uncomfortable.)
And it wasn’t this: (The sweaty trio surrounds Jackie with awkward gyrations post-dance-off.)
It wasn’t even this: (Joe’s pathetic and failed attempts to hit on women in front of Jackie at a nightclub. However, this was a close second.)
No, the most uncomfortable moment during last night’s episode was when I realized that it’s not weight that’s the problem here: It’s bad plastic surgery. (Really, is there any other kind?) The contestants are all working out, eating better, losing weight, dealing with their emotional issues, and feeling better. No one is cheating on Jackie’ program anymore. This makes me glad. But I worry for a few of the women. What’s going to happen when they proudly present their healthy new bodies, only to be left with their odd-looking faces that have been mistreated by one too many lifts, nips, and tucks? Jeana and Mandy: This is L.A., you both have money, and you’ve done unfortunate things to your once-pretty faces (or rather, a professional did those things, we hope), and no amount of cardio or crunches or smoothies will ever change this unsightly fact, especially as you age.
But you’re not alone. Your fearlessly fit leader and host, Jackie Warner, is no better. She’s an attractive woman made of muscle who has had crazy shit done to her face. Can I prove that these women have gone under the knife? No. I don’t have to. Just look at them. Actually, that’s the problem: It’s hard to look at them. Every time I do, I wonder: What’s the point of working so hard to achieve a healthy, perfectly-sculpted body if your face looks like you were in a serious car accident? Make the body prettier by exercising and eating right. Sounds good. Make the face prettier by slicing it open and injecting it with chemicals.
Sounds like Thintervention needs an intervention.
