Kim Kardashian: 'Botox Just Wasn't Necessary'

Kim Kardashian had a painful start to the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, enduring a bruised face as a result of a televised Botox procedure. After emails and comments flooded her blog, the 29-year-old reality star decided to come clean about the incident. “On the show you saw I had some bruising around my eyes after the procedure, which is totally natural, but because I hadn’t looked into the side effects, I freaked out,” she writes on her website. “In no way was Dr. Kassabian a bad doctor… it wasn’t a botched job at all!!” That doesn’t, however, mean that she’ll be trying it again anytime soon. “I am not against botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non surgical procedure, but I think when you’re young there are other ways you can look after your skin….Botox just wasn’t necessary for me at this age.” The star points to FusionBeauty’s Illumifill, a product that she represents as a spokesperson, as her go-to instead.

Give her about four to five years and she won’t be able to live without botox. Seriously. Because the lines will begin to form around her eyes when she smiles, and her forehead will begin to show signs of aging. Which isn’t allowed in hollywood or in everyday life anymore it seems.

I just had 16 shots of Botox again today, and I am only 24. You gotta start young to look good old!

OMG Please! People don’t feed into this! KK has been using fillers and botox for years!!! She is such a liar- she has alter her facial features and body over the last several years! Yes- Kim, keep trying to fool the public. Such a liar! The show is scripted! Your makeup artist- did a great job of making you looked brusied!

Yeah . . .I Said It on

Please. She has had so much “work” done (face and body included). If you were to compile pictures of her from before she became a “celebrity” to now, you can see just how much her face has morphed. The only reason why she got botox on t.v. is because it is all too evident that her face has undergone numerous changes, and people have been talking. She just wanted it to appear as if it was her first time to deflect from the truth. She used to favor her sister Kourtney, now she more closely favors her 50+ mother. Kim is pretty, but in an overdone and unatural sense. Kourtney is more of a natural beauty. Just my two cents.

Glad Ms Kardasian realizes she is much to young for Botox. I think she now bears a striking resemblance to Danielle Staub. What a pity.
