What was considers news that night was Trista (the original bachelorette) yes, ashamed that I even know who she is, was getting a boob job and her eyelids lifted because she was 40 and it was her gift to herself and she deserved to feel beautiful again.
It went on to show before and after pictures of what she looked like and how much happier she was with herself and how much more confident she felt since having the surgery. This was all reported by the fake-ass looking reporter like having plastic surgery is usual and expected and downright necessary for every women about to hit 40.
Is there really that much difference? Was that even worth the 15-20K it cost? Why should we women start to feel bad about ourselves at age 40? Shouldn't we be feeling great about what we have accomplished with our lives and done with those bodies? Certainly, I wish that I would have no grey hairs, or no man hairs growing on my chin and sure my boobs have been higher in my lifetime and my eyes used to look more open and doe-eyed.
Why are we told by the media and Hollywood that when we don't look 20 anymore or like Barbie we have to fix it?
This is what we are bombarded with day after day. No wonder our girls have eating disorders and body dysmorphia. I cannot imagine that wasn't any better news to cover that day than Trista's new boobs... Sad really.
I honestly don't even care that she had the surgery. Good for her, if it makes her feel better.
What bothered me was that:
1. it was even news. Let the poor girl have surgery in peace for cripes sake.
2. that is was considered usual and almost necessary for a old hag of a woman in her 40's to 'fix' herself.
Ok, enough of that nonsense. Let's move on to more important topics. Like the state of my feet, for instance.
Oh my freakin' grossness. How did I not notice this until today? None of it hurts, thankfully. But it appears that I am in dire need of a pedicure or at least a pumice stone. Can you say runner problems?
How are your feet? Are they as gross as mine?
What do you think about Trista 'fixing' herself because she's 40?
