If you ever visit a prison, you’ll notice an unusual phenomenon among the inmates. One hundred percent of them are innocent, at least if you ask them. You often notice the same phenomenon with TV and movie celebrities about plastic surgery. They all look twenty years younger than they are, but all of them are innocent of plastic surgery if you ask them.
One of the most vocal deniers of plastic surgery was Kathie Lee Gifford, co-host for fifteen years with Regis Philbin on their popular morning show. She always had a fresh and youthful face, and as the years went by and no changes were evident, people began to wonder if she was having any work done to keep her youthful looks. She just never seemed to get any older, even after the birth of her two children with her ex-footballer husband, Frank. Questions about Kathie Lee Gifford cosmetic enhancement were met with the same outright denial, year after year.
In 2010, Rosie O’Donnell started Kathie Lee Gifford rumors again on her radio show, and Kathie Lee was enraged. She claimed that she hadn’t had any work done on her face, and did her TV morning show without any makeup to prove it. Gifford even mentioned O’Donnell during the broadcast, and dared her to look for scars while she was on the air live. This got Rosie to issue an apology, and Gifford said she felt vindicated. But when Kathie Lee published her tell-all memoirs, she admitted that she had been having Botox and laser treatments for eighteen years!
So Kathie Lee Gifford plastic surgery denials are like the denials you hear in prison. The louder they are, the more likely they are to be false. The treatments Kathie Lee has received are plastic surgery by any definition, and she should have admitted it earlier. She’s doesn’t overdo it, and she’s kept her youthful looks even though she’s now over 60 years old. Just two years after she popped a gasket over Rosie O’Donnell’s comments, she had plastic surgery on live TV, along with her co-host and some guests.
Kathie Lee Gifford plastic surgery went from a rumor she denied to be broadcast to the world, so other observers wondered if the perennially young-looking Gifford might have had other procedures. Kathie Lee’s face does not show signs of aging that you might expect from a woman of her years, and her skin is very taut and shiny, so some people assume that means she’s had some sort of additional facelift procedure, eyelid surgery, Botox injections, and laser treatments.
Other observers have observed that whatever her opinions about having surgery on her face, Kathie Lee obviously has other ideas about what goes on below her chin. Kathie Lee Gifford cosmetic procedures must have included at least a boob job, and she’s hinted at that when asked about her face. She’s also likely had liposuction or laser treatments on her legs, which look like they belong to a woman twenty years younger than she is.
