E! is looking to clean up some plastic surgery disasters with its latest reality offering.
“Real Housewives” husbands Terry Dubrow (spouse of “Real Housewives of Orange County” cast member Heather Dubrow) and Paul Nassif (the ex of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” femme Adrienne Maloof) are teaming for the new E! series “Botched,” in which the two plastic surgeons will team up to repair ” ill-fated cosmetic work.”
Each episode of the series, which is due to premiere in summer/fall 2014, Dubrow and Nassif (pictured) will perform two surgeries in hopes of fixing plastic surgery results such as “frightening facelifts, shockingly bad boob and hideous nose jobs, to devastating tummy tucks and lopsided butt lifts,” according to E!
“In a culture fixated on looks, I think we are equally fascinated by stories of both good and terrible plastic surgery,”E! executive vice president, programming & development Jeff Olde said of the venture. “As more and more people endure multiple procedures for that perfect look, all too often the outcome can be a nightmare. But with the help of two of the best doctors in the field, ‘Botched’ will offer them a second chance at beauty.”
Now who’ll launch a program that removes the blemish of reality TV from our cultural landscape?
