(Photos) Before & After: Teen Mom Star Farrah Gets $16k Nose Job & Chin Implant (SMH)

This Teen Mom show puts money into the hands of the wroooong people! We’ve watched Jenelle Evans and her issues with abuse, Amber and her drug problems, Leah is on marriage two and baby 3 at the age of 20…it doesn’t stop! Now Farrah (who’s had her fair share of troubles on the show) is on surgery number 3 at the age of 21. She got her boobs done in 2010, and now both her nose and her chin. “I’ve hated my nose since I was 13,” she told In Touch. A nose I can understand because some people really have complexes about that but your chin? Really? Smh! The before is above, below after the jump. Personally I think she looks worse! Marisa Mendez


FOOD: STD Cupcakes? Look Nasty, But Taste Good!!

(Video) 50 Cent’s “Formula 50” Book Promo

50 Cent’s forthcoming workout and nutrition book, “Formula 50”, will be hitting stores on December 27 and Fif took some time to explain what the book is about in a promo video. Fif explains that his book isn’t just about losing weight or gaining muscle mass, but about being able to do both while forming life long healthy eating habits. The book promises to be “A 6-Week Workout and Nutrition Plan That Will Transform Your Life.” I wonder if there will be a follow-up workout DVD? I’m sure many ladies would do the DVD just to thirst over 50’s body, LOL. Check out the promo video below. Julie A.


(Photos) Before & After: Wow! The Man Who Received A FULL Face Transplant Looks AMAZING!

A man who’s lived as a self-described “hermit” since a horrific 1997 accident now has a new lease on life. Back then, an accident with a gun took off Richard Norris’ entire jaw, his lips and his nose, leaving his face severely disfigured (above). He’s rarely gone out in public since then and when he did, he’d wear a surgical mask to hide his face so people wouldn’t stare. Now, he’s gotten his life back, after a huge surgery in March replacing both jaws, teeth, tongue and skin, along with nerve and muscle tissue from his scalp to his neck. It was a procedure that took 36 hours to complete, done by Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Since March, doctors said that the right side of his face is at about 80 percent normal motor function and his left is at about 40. He has also regained the ability to smell and taste. “Richard is exceeding my expectations this soon after his surgery, and he deserves great deal of credit for the countless hours spent practicing his speech and strengthening his new facial muscles,” Dr. Rodriguez said. “He’s one of the most courageous and committed individuals I know.” It’s amazing what science is capable of these days! Check out the before and after in the gallery, and Richard’s statements below. Marisa Mendez
