'Plastic Wives' Star

I NEED Plastic Surgery ...

to Survive in L.A.

1/25/2013 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


The star of "Plastic Wives" -- a new reality show about the wives of plastic surgeons who pride themselves on FREE nips and tucks -- says the only way to keep up in L.A. is to go under the knife ... and firmly believes there's NOTHING wrong with that.

Frances Marques -- one of four women featured on TLC's new show -- was out in L.A. Thursday night and we asked all about her controversial new show and her various procedures ... we're talkin' butt implants, lip reconstruction (NOT on your mouth), botox, liposuction ... the list goes on.

Frances tells TMZ ... plastic surgery shouldn't be seen as a taboo thing, because "everybody has everything done" -- and it's nothing to be ashamed of.

She explains, "Upkeep is important, especially in Los Angeles ... Everybody that's beautiful around the nation comes here, to be somebody. So we're competing with these gorgeous women. So we wanna keep it up. What's wrong with that?"

Um ... nothing?

i love wisconsin because we don't live that way. i think it's embedded in celebrities that youth is what sells, and maybe that was true at one time but i don't see it these days. a good actor gets work by their performance. as for non celebrities getting surg. done to the extreme it's almost a sickness, every woman is extremly thin with blonde hair, blue eyes and bleached teeth, cookie cutter looks.

She looks horrible, not because she is ugly, but because of the plastic surgeries. What happened to common sense?

This freaks husband is going to go out of business. If he did that to someone he "loves", WTF does he do to a regular patient? And one more thing, if you are considering any type of plastic surgery, not only should you do ample research on the doctor, you should get a doctor who specializes in the area you want worked on. My breast augmentation was done by a doctor who only did that. My facial procedures were done by a doctor that only does faces. Because seriously, would you want to get a facial procedure by a doctor that just sucked the fat out of someone's a s s? Yuck!!!!

Well, at least her outside appearance probably matches her emotional and intellectual inside very well. Truth in advertising (WYSIWYG), so to speak...

Trophy wives, what a sad, desperate existence for women in the 21st century! Then again, "first world problems" - fcuk her!

I think it's time I called my cable provider and tell them to remove TLC from my lineup. I'm getting freakin' tired of this garbage they call "REALITY". I laughed my arse off the last time the "WRITERS GUILD" went on strike because very little has come out in the way of "ENTERTAINING and ORIGINAL" writing. The next time the writer's go on strike, Hollyweird will start making the big screen versions of "REALITY" shows. Anyone remember Steve and Terri Irwin getting their own movie?

Whoa! What Hollywood needs is less Plastic Surgeons and more Psychologists and Psychiatrists.

In most state it is illegal to operate on your own family. Considering plastic surgery ( excluding botox injections ) is surgery how do these Doc's legally perform these operations on their own wives?????? Now I suppose it is California law that makes it legal.
Amazing, wait until one of these women dies and her husband was the surgeon, this makes bad medicine and if it is not illegal it should be. She looks overdone, plastic and phony, aside from being unattractive.
