Suzanne Somers on ShopNBC

Started 1334285365.87 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1334593239.587 by nlwilliams

Suzanne is saying that she has never had any work done. In fact, she couldn't remember the names of the substances that are injected. She and the host made fun of those who had lip enhancement. She says that her victory over aging can be attributed to her diet (she grows her own organic foods) and her own skin care devices and etc. etc. What do you ladies think of her claims? This woman does not look 65 whatsoever.

Well I am not trying to look like her so I really don't care about any work she may or may not have had done. Don't really care about that with the reps for any skin care line.

I do not believe her at all. I have seen her lips when they were inflated for sure . She is so out there on this one . I think she also had face injections of some sort -stem cells or something to that effect when she looked so blown up and puffy. It probably was juvederm or radiesse. She doesn"t even know the names ? ha!! isnt she in the anti aging business and well researched??? what a crock of sh#t{#emotions_dlg.devil2}

She has that puffy look that comes with using injectables.

Please don't put me in a timeout.

I think what I found damaging to her basic credibility was the remark about the injectables. Saying, "What's the name of that stuff - that thick goopy stuff". Come on - at least call it hylauronic acid instead of acting as if you know absolutgely nothing about it and the name itself is demonic. I understand the dynamics of selling but you're taking peoples' money, and if you want to embellish the truth that's one thing, but to out and out lie is another.

I like Suzanne, but her story changes with time. I did hear her say a couple of years ago while she was selling products, that she had Restylane injected either in her lips or naso-labial fold, can't recall which. She said it burned like a son of a ....., but lasted for months and was worth it! I don't doubt she can't remember whatthe filler was was called, but pretty sure she remembers the procedure!

I agree. She's lying. Look at her face. Her lips didn't look like that on Three's Company.

I've watched many of her presentations and used some of her products that I do like very much. When she says she has not had any work done, I think what she really means is "surgery." I don't think she has ever denied not having injectables. I don't really care if she has or has not, she's successful and I give her credit for that and I also give her credit for creating (with others of course) some really good skin care products.

Frankly, I don't know what to think about Ms. Somers; however, I do like some of her skin care items. Looking younger than your chronological age, IMO, is all in the genes. Of course, good diet, exercise, attitude, not smoking --- those all help, but I've lived long enough to see anecdotal evidence of the huge role that heredity plays.

I think she looks her age - and then some.

ShopNBC probably has a Legal Department with very strict regulations about what any vendor or host can and cannot say on air. I realize that they don't have absolute control over what Suzanne says, but they probably try. There must be certain terms that are legally acceptable, such as referring to no work done, as opposed to no injections.

I have posted in the past that I've heard Suzanne say in news interviews (Larry King?) that she had, I believe, some type of injections, but now I don't recall exactly what I heard. {#emotions_dlg.blink}

If you'd see her without her special studio "lighting" you'd see that she's 65. And, NO, I don't believe that she hasn't had any work. However, she is knowledgable about health issues. But, it's sort of like "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing" type deal to me.

I agree, I believe she has mentioned at one time getting some type of injected stuff, but no "facial surgery". I do love her organic/toxic free skin care line. I think she is a wonderful woman's advocate and I appreciate all the research/Doctor interviews she does on health issues.

Be kind to one another.

{#emotions_dlg.blink} SS must have gone to the same surgeon that did JR they look very much alike now.{#emotions_dlg.w00t} And she is not a doctor I would never buy any of her products or take any advice she has to offer.{#emotions_dlg.sneaky}

I think with all SS injections it has aged her. Her face looks deformed as well. Too many fillers gives you a shoebox shaped face. It cracks me up that she actually thinks we're going to believe she's had nothing done!! LOL!

Reminds me of the movie Legally Blonde, where the fitness guru chick refused to admit she was having liposuction done while her stepdaughter was murdering the husband, because it would ruin her empire that was built on her exercise videos.

Ms. Somers must not consider INJECTING FOREIGN SUBSTANCES INTO HER FACE "work".

She must reserve "work" for "surgical procedure" only.

Oh brother. Does she think we are stupid and blind? No one ages and gets younger naturally!!!!

I heard her say on Larry King a few years ago that she uses injectables in her face.

Without her special lighting, she looks every bit (if not older than) her age. I sat a row over from her on a flight a few years ago and her skin is damaged and leathery. I thought she looked really bad in person.

A number of years ago she was selling her "honker" jewelry with Coleen and on air, she admitted to selling but not liking a number of her pieces. She actually admitted to making gagging noises at some of them off camera. After that I knew she was capable of saying and doing anything to make a sale.
