Lisa Rinna and Ashley Bashioum: “Soap” Connection

January 12th, 2011

Guest Comments by Ashley Bashioum

Lisa Rinna is known for her provocative roles on Days of Our Lives and Melrose Place during the 90s. She now appears with her husband Harry Hamlin, called Harry Loves Lisa, a reality show which features the engaging married couple.

I had the pleasure of meeting this spunky TV personality while being interviewed on her show Soap Talk while I was on the Young and the Restless (Mackenzie). Both on and off screen Lisa was a joy to be around. She was very professional and since it was my first live interview, she made sure I felt at ease.   We spent a considerable time talking about my Dad being a plastic surgeon!

A recent tabloid hot topic has been Lisa’s decision to undergo a lip reduction in order to restore a more natural look to her lips. The silicone that had she injected into her lips in the 1980’s (not FDA approved) created scar tissue, started moving, creating an uneven contour. In August 2010 she had the corrective procedure done with the full support of her family. It will take six-nine months to see the final results, but judging from recent photos featured in People Magazine,  she’s already looking fantastic! When you’re in the public eye there will always be scrutiny, you just learn to live with it.

Update:  Lisa Rinna has just been named to Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice.  I know I’ll be watching this season!

“Boytox” = Men having Botox

May 5th, 2010

According to a recent report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) their survey found men’s relatively infrequent injections of Botox rose to 330,000 in 2009, an increase of 10%.   This is compared to the numbers of women having reached a plateau at 2.8 million procedures last year.

The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, reveals the non-surgical cosmetic surgery market has seen continued growth in 2009, with dermal fillers and chemical peels driving the increase by 26% and a whopping 306% respectively.  In perhaps an emerging new trend, 2009 also saw a continued rise in the number of male patients (up 10%).  Men now account for 18% of all patients seen in the UK.  The numbers are slightly lower in the US.

This growing market has coined two new terms,  â€˜Boytox’ (male Botox) and ‘Sweatox’ (anti-sweat Botox).
