Bethenny Frankel's frozen face really shouldn't shock anyone since the Botox look is so popular with "Real Housewives" stars, but according to a Sept. 22 report by Reality TV Magazine, some experts believe that the talk show host has gone too far and paralyzed the muscles in her face.
Dr. Robert Guida told the Daily Mail that Bethenny's eyebrows arch way too much, which is probably the result of having too many Botox injections in the wrong spots. Over-arched eyebrows can make women look surprised and cartoonish, and Dr. Guida described Franke's look as "overdone" and "ridiculous." Another anonymous expert said that Bethenny Frankel has used so much Botox that her face muscles may be paralyzed. This expert described the reality show star as having a "bat-eyed appearance." Bethenny has fessed up to trying Botox in the past, but her rep claims that she's not using it anymore. Obviously her face tells a different story.
It might seem wrong to critique the looks of the "RHONY" star, but maybe doing so will actually make women think twice about ruining their own looks by trying to freeze their faces. Many women see Botox as being harmless since it's not a surgical procedure, but there are dangers of getting the quick little injections. They can cause scarring, facial asymmetry, permanent nerve damage, and infections. Celebs like Teri Hatcher have spoken out about the negatives of using Botox, but any naysayers are easily overshadowed by the parade of Hollywood women who have had obvious work done. Some celebs even swear by it, but their endorsements don't mean that it's completely safe.
So do you think that Bethenny has gone overboard with the Botox?
