Before and after

[2010] Close Encounters with Celebrities & Show Business by 'feliciag'  Clones and synthetics - I'm not really sure what all is going on there, myself. I do have a theory that sometimes horrific plastic surgery, of the type that really is more mutilation than beauty improvement, can sometimes be done as a form of torture to bring the star "in line." I can't look at some celebs like Mickey Rourke, Heidi Montag, and Ashley Simpson without thinking "Maybe the original is still in there but they were tortured into shutting up or falling in line in some way." So using extreme surgeries as a form of torture and abuse might happen long before someone is actually replaced, or maybe in place of replacement. But then some real plastic surgery DOES take place to make replacements look like the originals, too, or to even "improve" upon the originals. So it all gets very confusing.

'The desparation to maintain MK's "appearance fees" often leads to horrible disfigurement. MK's fighting the losing battle of aging is a sad thing to witness. How much of this is torture or abuse is anyone's guess...'---Esoteric Kitten
