Melissa Rivers has a message for her mom: enough plastic surgery! She said her 77-year-old mother's surgical enhancements are a source of conflict. Comic Joan Rivers said in a book she wrote two years ago, "Men Are Stupid ... And They Like Big Boobs – A Woman's Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery," that she's had more than a dozen cosmetic surgeries.
"In my opinion, it's like enough," Melissa Rivers said. "Stop it. It is a source of conflict, it really is. It bothers me."
The two women were at a news conference Friday to hype their upcoming WE network reality series, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" The series premieres Jan. 25.
Rivers joked about her daughter's concerns, but said it's part of being in show business and doesn't think there's any such thing as too much.
"If you had a dollar for every stitch in the face of someone you interviewed, you wouldn't be here," she told reporters.
Has Melissa Rivers Had Cosmetic Surgery?
Melissa Joan Rivers was born on January 20, 1968 in Manhattan; her mother is Joan Rivers, the well known comedian.
Melissa’s birth name was Melissa Warburg Rosenberg.
She is a television host and producer. She and her mother, Joan, star in the reality show Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best?
Melissa married John Endicott, a horse trainer, in December 1998; they divorced in 2003. That marriage resulted in one son, Edgar Cooper Endicott.
Melissa took her mother’s stage surname in 1990. She interned for CBS News after graduating from college. She was a reporter for CBS This Morning and a contributor to Hangin’ with MTV.
Melissa also had roles in television shows that included Beverly Hills 90210, The Comeback, and Silk Stalkings. She has hosted various events on television.
Has Melissa Rivers Admitted to Having Plastic Surgery?
Melissa admits that she has had plastic surgery; she states “I’ve had my breasts enlarged and my nose done as a teenager, which was botched and had to be re-fixed, and I do Botox too.”
Melissa has said before that she and her mother have both dealt with low self-esteem and terrible body-images issues.
She states that she has read things that have been written about her where people have called her “ugly” and “horseface.”
Melissa states that she has never denied having Botox and that she gets it once or twice a year. She also states “I am willing to talk about it. I think I’d be more upset if they were saying I was fat.”
Melissa Admits To Botox
Melissa discussed the fact that she uses Botox injections with People magazine.
In some celebrity plastic surgery before and after pictures, some would probably argue that she has taken away from her natural beauty; however the wrinkles are gone.
Botox works by paralyzing the muscles temporarily in order to give the skin a smoother appearance.
Some comedians and other celebrities have made fun of celeb plastic surgery. One example of this is Claudia Jordan, Melissa’s “Celebrity Apprentice” teammate, who states “Melissa’s forehead does not move. I can’t tell if she is happy or sad.”
On The Wendy Williams Show, Williams asked Rivers if she had plastic surgery and she said:
“Show me someone in the cast of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ that has not seen the better end of the Botox needle.”
Melissa Rivers On Her Mother’s Surgery
Melissa has openly discussed the fact that she does not like Joan Rivers’ plastic surgery obsession.
Melissa’s mother, Joan has undergone facelifts, brow lifts, cheek lifts, Botox, breast augmentation, and several more.
Melissa says it bothers her that her mother continues getting more and more plastic surgery and “she needs to stop.”
Joan laughs off her daughter’s concern and says “there is no such thing as too much plastic surgery.”
You can see a before and after plastic surgery picture of Melissa that dates back to her younger years in 1993 and then onto 2008 and be the judge for yourself if her Botox has been an example of celebrity plastic surgery gone wrong.
From pictures posted, some people seem to think she has undergone other plastic surgery besides the breast implants and Botox; some seem to think she has had a nose job, cheek augmentation, and a browlift.
Speaking of mother and daughter plastic surgery, one may wonder if Goldie Hawn’s cosmetic surgery and Kate Hudson plastic surgery is a possibility. Kate Hudson does not appear to have had any plastic surgery and looks like a natural beauty.
Another very famous mother and daughter plastic surgery saga is that with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner (see Kris Jenner’s mini face lift).
Melissa Rivers having some plastic surgery is not a secret, but she is slim and without wrinkles on her face!
