Actually, from what the cast members reveal in this preview clip, the new Oxygen show (premiering tonight) could be titled Plastic Surgery Overload. These men and women don't just work at a "medi-spa" in Southern California; they're customers:
Combined, they've had breast implants, cheek implants, chin implants, nose jobs, dental procedures, neck liposuction, waist liposuction and laser hair removal. One woman has had Restylane injected into her feet.
In today's New York Times, Ginia Bellafante writes:
"Addicted to Beauty" aims to be "The Office" with liposuction, the emphasis placed on staff politics rather than on patient shenanigans… Nobody looks good; everybody merely appears as desperate as [a castmember named] Gary sounds.
LA Times TV critic Mary McNamara calls Addicted To Beauty "less a reality show than an infomercial." Whether people tune in to watch a "reality" show in which people are so fake remains to be seen. But since these people clearly feed on attention, it seems kind of creepy to enable them.
