Botox Mom -- 'GMA' Never Checked Its Facts

5/19/2011 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sheena Upton aka Kerry Campbell claims "Good Morning America" was so anxious to get the first interview with the Botox Mom ... show producers never even bothered to double check her story.

Sheena Upton

Upton tells TMZ, GMA -- who she claims offered her $10,000 for her story -- "didn't ask me any questions to try to figure out anything" before airing the show last week -- adding, they just put her straight on TV.

A spokesperson for ABC has already insisted the show made several attempts to verify Upton's story -- telling us, "Good Morning America has repeatedly questioned Upton, members of her family, and other sources who again and again stood by the Botox story."

As we previously reported, Upton claims the entire story that she injected her 8-year-old daughter with Botox was a complete sham ... concocted by a U.K. tabloid called The Sun -- which then paid her $200 for acting the part.

I think she contacted the paper in the first place with her "Botox Story". They may have after the fact given her a script to follow, telling her exactly what they wanted to see her do. She's trying to cover her butt, but her lies are transparent!

Jailbird: Botox Mom Served Time Behind Bars – For Lying

Long before she allegedly lied about injecting her 8-year-old daughter with Botox, Sheena Upton got attention from the law.

She served a total 14 days in jail in connection with three separate driving violations, RadarOnline.com has learned. In two of the incidents, she lied to cops, according to records.

Upton currently faces losing custody of her two children after she falsely admitted on Good Morning America that she injected daughter Britney with Botox so that she could compete in beauty pageants.

But in 2003, Upton’s lying actually landed her in the slammer!

n May of that year, she was charged with giving false information to a police officer during a traffic stop, according to records. She eventually pled guilty in a Los Angeles Superior Court and ended-up serving 4 days in jail and fined $20 in court costs. She didn’t pay.

A year later, she was charged with driving with a suspended license and, after failing to appear in court, once again pled guilty. She was ordered not to drive without a license. But on May 27, 2005, she was caught violating the judge’s order.

She was charged with driving without a license and, once again, lying to the officer who stopped her.

Sentence: 10 days in the big house, and a $40-fine. Upton didn’t pay for that fine either, but authorities sent a collection agency after her.

"This woman beat them at their own game. No harm, no foul"

"No foul"? How about the fact that this woman scammed media sources out of a minimum of $10,000 for selling them a FAKE story? That's a crime and she should pay restitution as well as serve a little time for that to discourage others from pulling the same stunt.

"Actor" my ass. Does this woman have any professional acting experience at all? What about formal training? Telling lies for money doesn't make one an "actor" - it makes them a thief.

If this woman wasn't destitute before, she will be by the time the lawyers for ABC and The Sun get finished with her.

I am willing to listen to what people have to say and not judge too quickly...but two things that this mothers said made me doubt she's saying the truth:

1. She talks about how she was "told" to hold a SYRINGE against her daughter's face...And then after that she says that they were just "NORMAL" pictures and she didn't know it was going to be this kind of story. Uhm...since when is holding a SYRINGE against a child's face by a parent NORMAL???!!! The alarm bells should have gone up by then (if not by the time the brazilian wax request came....That is IF any of what she says is true...which I don't really think it is...).

2. She says "Honestly...I don't even know what Botox is!". Yeah. Right. So she really wants us to believe that she will go on TV and will agree to do an interview and talk about something she doesn't even really know anything about? Was the GMA lady in on the whole thing as well and part of the "script" because this woman did seem to know exactly what she is talking about and had no difficulties answering the reporter's questions.

I am not surprised these kind of people keep showing up, who also use their kids in their money getting schemes...Wouldn't be the first time. The Arvizo family who accused Michael Jackson comes to mind....Greedy parents will do anything to get money...and they will make their children lie for them in the process if they have to. All unfit parents. Sad, really.

She gives new meaning to cheap tramp. And she got her kid to back her up on Dr. Drew! This is another "perk" of reality shows all over the place. Lowlifes like this will do anything and use anyone, including their own kid, to get on tv. The dumbing down of America continues.

This STUPID & unintelligent B!tcH needs some physic help STAT! That kid should be taken away from her because she is immoral, unethically and mentally challenged to be a sound-minded parent. Plus the hag looks like Fiona (with downs on crack) from the Shrek movie!

No way is this bogus. Look at her child's face! She injecting her with something! Maybe not botox, but she's still injecting her! To me, the fact that she's injecting her child, "just for the money" is worse! She should be put away imo.

HAHA, I totally used to work with her. She is a cool chick, not nearly as bad as everyone is making her out to be. She probably really did think of it as just a hoax that really wouldn't be as big of a deal as it is being made out to be. I totally believe that she sold the story to a tabloid to make a little extra $$. She is a good person.

GMA got trolled. Out there, there is some parent who has done this and is mad due to the lack of attention they've gotten and some freakish 8yo is all botoxed out.
