To Botox or Not To Botox, That Is the Question



A good mother-in-law TiVos Mad Men for you while you’re traveling abroad for two months. A great mother-in-law TiVos Mad Men and Gossip Girl and Project Runway. The best mother-in-law ever TiVos Mad Men, Gossip Girl, Project Runway and Regis and Kelly for you because she knows about your SSB. I’m a lucky girl indeed to have the best mother-in-law (and father-in-law) ever, especially considering the typical mother-in-law stereotypes out there.
After a long drive back from Orlando via Savannah to Greensboro, Georgia (long because it was raining and I had a head cold that made me feel for Sneezy — imagine that after three consecutive days surrounded by thousands of kiddies at Disney World), I was happily curled up on the couch getting my Regis and Kelly fix as I sucked down Luden’s cherry cough drops (so they’re like candy, I swear by them for a sore throat). Regis and Kelly are doing holiday makeovers this week and I was astounded, dumbfounded, astonished, oh my, by the results of one woman, Karen Ann Smith.

Granted, she was pretty to begin with, but Lawrence Zarian & Co. took her from drab to fab with the help of a little hair dye and makeup, some teeth brightening, a snazzy new dress and, most importantly, Botox.

Now I’ve never been one to believe in plastic surgery or any of that who-ha (of course, that was easier to say in my twenties), but this makeover has me thankful that I have the choice to inject Botulism into my face some day.

Mostly I was surprised that Dr. Brandt gave her a whopping 18 (yes, 18!) injections and her face wasn’t that paralyzed look you often associate with Botox (hi, my eyebrows never move!). Given that no knives or anesthesia are needed, what do you think… to Botox or not to Botox, that is the question?
