This must SUCK. Vishal Thakkar went to get a nose job after a divorce, and trusted the PRESIDENT of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina, to give him his first surgery. Something went wrong, which required a follow-up surgery. Then it gets worse and worse, and 22 surgeries later, the doctor just went ahead and removed his nose. He now breathes through a straw in his nose. This doctor certainly needs to have his license revoked, but also, why would you allow this joker to perform 22 surgeries on your face? Check out a picture of the poor victim in the gallery.
Paris Jackson was rushed to the hospital early this morning, in what is being reported as a suicide attempt. Michael’s daughter was taken in from her house in Calabasas around 2am, after a call came in saying she’d possibly overdosed. There were also multiple cuts on her wrist. TMZ has found some recent photos (in the gallery) of what appears to be scars on Paris’ wrists from previous cutting attempts. A source in her family says this is not the first time she’s attempted suicide, but it’s by far the worst. Just before the attempt, Paris had posted some pretty scary tweets on her account, seeming to speak toward the mood she was in. A family member says she was upset that she couldn’t go to a Marilyn Manson concert. Thankfully, she is reported to be doing okay.
Herpes rumors surrounded Rihanna for years, especially after that infamous fight with Chris Brown. A new lawsuit associated with the superstar concerns the awful STD as well, but luckily, it has nothing to do with something that Rih did. A woman by the name of Starkeema Greenidge has filed suit against M.A.C. Cosmetics, Inc, claiming that a sample of Rih’s new lipstick “RiRi Woo” given to her at Rihanna’s Barclays Center show earlier this month gave her herpes. Greenidge says a M.A.C. rep applied the red lipstick to her upper lip, told her to press her lips together and spread it around. Since it was a sample, it had been on many others’ lips as well. Allegedly the day after the concert, “My whole lip was irritated and hugely swollen,” Greenidge says. She immediately went to a doctor, who then told her she had herpes. Not sure if she’ll win in court, but let’s see what happens!
Dehydration is no joke. After standing outside on the blue carpet of the Billboard Music Awards for a solid 3 hours in blazing Las Vegas heat last night, Rocsi Diaz ended up fainting. Ironically, I fainted too for the very same reason this weekend, and my knees, my head and my chin are pretty banged up from it! Thankfully, the ET correspondent is doing just fine, and confirmed to Necole Bitchie that it was not only dehydration but exhaustion getting to her as well. “It was so scary and embarrassing but a reality check to take better care of myself!” she said of the incident. Glad to hear she is okay!

Bayonne Medical Center in Bayonne, New Jersey has the highest billing rates of all the hospitals in the nation. The Medical Center charges the highest amount in the country for the most common treatments. The data used to come up with these figures is from 2011, the most recent available, and comes from the bills the hospital sends to Medicare. The hospital was facing bankruptcy back in 2007 and for a long time many insurance companies refused to work with the hospital because of it’s high costs. Now it seems that the only reason the hospital has recovered well is because of the high billing. Sadly, I know first hand that my hometown hospital that I was born in might be costly but that doesn’t mean you will get good care. Bayonne was only in the top 50% of a study surveying New Jersey hospitals in 2011. For the amount being charged, you would think the care would be better? Read more below.
