On the left is NeNe Leakes of The Real HouseWrecks of Atlanta working nose job #1 (and an exquisite pair of brown cholita brows) at the GLAAD Media Awards in April. On the right is NeNe working nose job #2 on Watch What Happens Live last night.
While on WWHL last night, a caller asked NeNe if she got her nose chopped, screwed, rotated and pinched again. Anybody who has the ability to see knows the answer to that question, but NeNe answered it anyway and confirmed that a plastic surgeon’s scalpel has touched her nose for a second time. But this time around, NeNe had to do it and not because her Real Housewives contract states that she must stay as plastic looking as possible at all times. NeNe says she did it for medical reasons.
Usually it’s a good thing when a tip touch’s your lips, but not in NeNe’s case. NeNe got the Tamar Braxton special, because the tip of her nose kissed her upper lip every time she smiled and she needed to move around the cartilage or something. I don’t know. This is what she said:
“Yes, I had my nose done again. Because it was a real medical reason why I had to get it done. My cartilage was growing in my nose. My tip was touching the top of my lip when I smile. I didn’t get a full rhinoplasty the first time. When I did it the first time, I only had my nostrils taken in on the side, the very first time. This time I had more cartilage moved around. “
NeNe went on to say that her latest nose is only 13 weeks old so it’s still swollen. She also sashayed into “Bitch, you don’t make sense” territory when she said that she doesn’t get plastic surgery just to get plastic surgery. She got her first nose job because she didn’t like the way it looked and she got her second one for medical reasons. Um, aren’t those the two main reasons for why people get plastic surgery? I don’t think anyone sits around like, “I like the way I look and I don’t have any medical issues, but I’m bored and I want to waste money, so I’m going to get ass lip lipo.” Actually, I take that back. I’m pretty sure the Kartrashians sit around and think that exact thought.
I burned around 400 calories from rolling my eyes back and forth after Andy Cohen looked at NeNe’s obvious nose job and said, “I can’t believe I didn’t notice it.” I’m surprised he didn’t look at his other guest, plastic Lucky Cat statue Vivica Fox, and say, “You haven’t had work done too, have you?!”
