Julie Chen shocked the media world [not really] when she revealed that she had gotten eye surgery to look ‘less Chinese’ at the behest of her agent. Julie said the choice was a difficult one for her to make when she was younger, but her family and friends supported her in getting plastic surgery, and it eventually did wonders for her career. However, despite rumors to the contrary, Julie claims that the eye surgery was the ONLY plastic surgery she’s gotten, and she has never gotten a nose job.
She told the audience of the Talk, “For the record, I have never had a nose job. I have only had plastic surgery done to my eyes that I’ve already told you about. I do not have cheek implants, I did not take out fat over here to make my cheeks look more [sucks cheeks in, fish-style]. I did not have chin surgery, I did not have a nose job. These [teeth] are not veneers. I’ve not done my teeth. I’ve never even had braces. These are all my real teeth.”
The audience actually clapped at her statement, somehow implying that getting a nose job and getting veneers is worse than getting plastic surgery for your eyes? Plastic surgery is plastic surgery, and unless it’s done for health reasons, it’s all superficial – meaning getting a nose job isn’t somehow more demeaning than getting eye surgery, despite the social stigma that surrounds it.
Besides, anyone who looks at Julie’s old photos can clearly make out the difference in her nostril shape, and the bridge of her nose is obviously thinner than it used to be. It’s not like anyone’s saying anything derogatory, but to be open about one procedure and then lie about another just seems hypocritical, doesn’t it?
What do you guys think? Do you think Julie got a nose job and is just lying about it? Or is she telling the truth, and the eye surgery is the extent of what she’s gotten? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
