Mama Kelly Ripa Gets Botox Re-Fill When Her Kids Notice
It's still the number 1 cosmetic injectable. And yeah, probably 99% of Hollywood lovelies get pinched by the needle every 3-6 months to stay wrinkle-free. So, it comes as no surprise to allegedly hear that even NYC famous Kelly Ripa gets Botox, too.
But in her case, it's kind of unique for Kelly to recognize when she needs a Botox re-fill.
Huffington Post repeated a little tabloid gossip that's been going around. And we're going to share it, too, because we admire Kelly Ripa's honesty in a world of pampered, pretty celebrities.
If this rumor is true, at least the Emmy-award winning daytime host is keeping it real.
As most people know, Kelly and her family spend their summer weekends at the Hamptons. The TV star was reportedly overheard making these remarks:
"I work out absolutely every day. I don't overeat. I try to drink water but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead, as much as possible."
But that wasn't it. Kelly continued talking about the magic Botox injectable:
"Oh, you know when you really need it?" she said. "It's when my kids start asking me if I'm mad at them, and I go, 'Why do you think I'm mad at you?' They go, 'Because you're frowning.' I go, 'Oh no! I am? I'll be right back!' Give me Dr. Brant: He's the best, he is my real husband," said Kelly.
That's hilarious, if it is in fact, true. Kelly Ripa's forehead looks very smooth, and we don't note any elevens, or those two frown lines in between the eyebrows. Botox is especially effective for ironing away forehead lines and creases between the brows. We do see a few light crow's feet by the outer eyes. And that's about it. At age 40, Kelly Ripa is holding it together well.
If you aren't wild about getting poked repeatedly with a Botox needle, you could try the non-needle Botox. The British have developed organic Natox for $139.99:
No needles organic Natox - pain-free alternative to invasive anti-wrinkle injection products.
Lines become reduced - Smoother and refined skin tone.
Skin becomes more firmer and plump.
Creates luminous complexion.
Does it work? Well, some people love it. Check out the Natox website.
We're certain the results would not be as dramatic as the real Botox by needle, but if an over-the-counter beauty product can hold back the frowns for a while, it's worth a shot.
