Model's Black Market Butt Injections Leave Her Life and Career in Painful Shambles

Several years ago, Anivia Cruz-Dilworth was a successful plus-size model in high demand. The picture of flawlessness she presented to the world, however, came at a steep price. Now, the former model, whose career ambition drove her to elective black market plastic surgery, suffers from nonstop physical and emotional pain, brought on by the loss of her career as well as the...

E!'s New Plastic Surgery Show Good Work Isn't As Bad As It Should Be

E!'s New Plastic Surgery Show <i>Good Work</i> Isn't As Bad As It Should Be

On Tuesday night after Botched, E! debuted a new series called Good Work, hosted by RuPaul and featuring Botched surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow. Its mission is to analyze and critique alleged celebrity plastic surgery. It could've been an utter disaster.

It wasn't. The show idea itself—publicly dissecting celebrity faces and bodies, overwhelmingly women in this case—is inherently crude,...

Penny got her first breast implants at 23 and is now looking to Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nasif to fix scarring from her second boob job. Penny also happens to love corsets and waist training,...

Did You Hear About the Dude Who Got Breast Implants To Win a $100,000 Bet?

Did You Hear About the Dude Who Got Breast Implants To Win a $100,000 Bet?

On the most recent episode of Botched, an American “gambler/magician” named Brian Zembic tells the following story:

Sometime in “1997ish,” he was having dinner with his gambler/sadist friends in Europe when one of them bet him $100,000 that he wouldn’t get breast implants. I assume they thought their gambler/magician friend was more magician than gambler, but, no, it was definitely the other...

Botched By Nature Is Botched Without the Circus Factor

<i>Botched By Nature</i> Is <i>Botched </i>Without the Circus Factor

At the top of Wednesday night’s Botched by Nature series premiere on E!, a narrator tries to explain the difference between this spin-off and its popular parent show Botched. Unlike Botched, Botched by Nature will feature “patients who weren’t botched by a doctor’s scalpel but were botched by nature.” As you might’ve expected, though, the show is tonally the same.

It would’ve...

Would You Have Sex With Botched's Terry Dubrow?: Staff Pick Edition

Would You Have Sex With <i>Botched</i>'s Terry Dubrow?: Staff Pick Edition

Welcome to Would U?, an academic forum in which I share my gross crush of the week and ask if you, too, would bang that person.

Terry Dubrow . Plastic surgeon, Real House-husband, notorious smirker. Terry, you’d say to him with a coy smile, fingering the buttons on his crisp white oxford. Does his name feel good coming out of your mouth? Did you just whisper Terry Dubrow to yourself, sotto...

A Chat with the Botched Doctors On the Alluring Sideshow of Hack Jobs

A Chat with the <em>Botched</em> Doctors On the Alluring Sideshow of Hack Jobs

The first time I watched Botched, it was with equal levels of shock and shameful fascination. The premiere episode featured a woman with a lumpy uni-boob. Subsequent episodes: a woman whose ass implant flipped, a Justin Bieber wannabe, Janice Dickinson and a woman whose tragic tummy tuck had repositioned her vagina—all people who’d frustratingly sought plastic surgery to fix unsightly (to...
