I think I have been watching way too much mainstream television. Dancing With The Stars, Celebrity Apprentice, Access Hollywood and the list goes on. I have developed a big peeve about some of the interviews and personalities. Have you ever noticed how they rave about certain older actresses' looks? Well, who wouldn't look great for 50 or 60 or 70 when you have had a little nip and tuck every once in awhile? It is like getting credit for something you never did. I understand that many (most?) actresses have to keep up appearances in order to maintain their careers. I am not against plastic surgery in general. I will never have it, but within reason I think it is one's own business. But, PLEASE, don't rave on and on and give accolades to older actresses for looking young, when it is ARTIFICIAL aging.
Tonight on Access Hollywood, Raquel Welch was given the compliment of being the most glamorous grandma (in time for Mother's Day). She is a beautiful woman (aged 69) who has obviously had some very good plastic surgery. She looks natural. Her skin is not pulled too tight which makes some women look like monsters. BUT -- she has not aged so beautifully without the help of a talented plastic surgeon. I want to see someone who has not had "work" done and still looks good for her age be given a compliment or award for aging naturally and gracefully without plastic surgery.
That is my opinion for the day.
