The Politics of Plastic Surgery Now On Cable-------
If you can’t wait to see what Jessica Simpson’s alleged $25,000 beauty budget looks like when her VH1 reality show The Price of Beauty airs next year, here’s a little something to hold you over. Addicted to Beauty, a new reality “dramedy” that chronicles what happens when the rubber gloves come off at Changes Plastic Surgery and Spa in San Diego, premieres tonight at 11 p.m. EST on the Oxygen Channel. While medi-spas don’t necessarily strike us as the kind of workplace environment typically wrought with conflict, this show is out to prove us wrong. Dianne York-Goldman, socialite and marketing expert, has just left the former plastic surgery practice she ran with her husband (with whom she is now involved in a messy divorce) and has enlisted a cast of strong characters to help her in a new venture with well-known plastic surgeon Dr. Gilbert Lee. Jaw-dropping antics no doubt ensue. Produced by RDF Media USA, the same company that has championed such winners as Don’t Forget the Lyrics, Wife Swap, and A&E’s masterpiece The Two Coreys, this one has delightful train wreck written all over it—set your DVRs.
