“Plastic Wives” on Nightline – What Do You Think?
- Posted on: Jan 29 2013
Nightline recently ran a story interviewing the four women on TLC’s Plastic Wives special. They are the wives of four prominent Beverly Hills cosmetic docs, including Extra’s Dayna Devon. I saw a small snippet of the show last night and have it DVR’d, but haven’t caught the whole thing. The interview here, though, and the segment that I’ve seen reveal a side of Beverly Hills plastic surgery that is glamorized and dramatized. I’ve never met any of the doctors on the program, but am familiar with two of them (Dr. Matlock and Dr. Moelleken).
I think viewers should keep in mind that the producers of this show purposely cast plastic surgery wives that would make for a controversial, drama-filled hour. I know several plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills whose wives are nothing like the plastic surgery-addicted women on this program. While it is true that many plastic surgeons operate on their family members (even plastic surgeons in the Midwest), the majority of them haven’t had “head-to-cameltoe” liposuction like they mentioned here. In fact, the only time I’ve operated on my wife is to take off a lipoma from her hip! And that, my friends, doesn’t make a reality show.
I’m looking forward to watching the rest of Plastic Wives. If you’ve seen it, I’d love to know what you think.
