Hollywood Actors Strike A-Listers Saving Face ... Flocking to Plastic Surgeons!!!


Lots of actors who are on strike are getting work ... courtesy of Beverly Hills plastic surgeons!

Business is booming ... so says Dr. Ben Talei of the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic Surgery. He told Harvey and Charles on "TMZ Live" he's working 7 days a week, because actors are using the downtime to go under the knife and recover without being noticed or missing work.

Dr. Talei says it's the A and B-listers who are swarming his office ... mostly because they can afford it. He's been doing work on some of his favorite sports stars and actors, and there's an interesting story about a famous Scientologist who went under his knife.

And here's the most fascinating part ... he says some actors made contingency plans -- if it seemed the strike wouldn't last long, they'd get minor, filler work, but if it was prolonged, they get the full monty.

Get ready to see some rejuvenated celebs once the strike comes to an end ... courtesy of Dr. Talei!

Kylie Jenner Do As I Say, Not As I Do ... No Boob Job For Stormi!


Kylie Jenner says she doesn't want her daughter, Stormi, to go under the knife to get breast implants ... but also admits she had that very surgery years ago and now regrets it.

KJ got candid about her boob job on the season finale of "The Kardashians," telling her pal Stassie Karanikolaou she got her breasts done at 19 -- something she's never confessed before -- just before having her first kiddo.

It's a decision she's definitely looking back at differently now, and really hopes her 5-year-old daughter doesn't follow in momma's footsteps as the years go on -- saying she'd be "heartbroken" if she did, because she's beautiful as she is.


ICYMI, Kylie addressed a long-running rumor on last week's episode that she got a lot of surgery on her face ... saying she's gotten fillers, but that's about it.

The reason that was even addressed on the show is because the Kardashians, in general, have been criticized for inspiring millions of Americans to get cosmetic surgeries, for better or worse, often attempting to achieve the same look as Kim, Kylie and co.

So, it's interesting Kylie's turning her boob job confession into a teachable moment for her daughter, and possibly for young women everywhere.

Kevin Costner My Estranged Wife's Using Plastic Surgery Expenses ... To Justify $248,000 in Child Support

Kevin Costner says his estranged wife is living in outer space thinking she's entitled to $248,000 a month in child support, because some of her alleged "expenses" include her own plastic surgery ... according to court docs filed by Kevin.

Kevin's forensic accountant says in the new divorce docs, the expenses Christine Baumgartner uses to justify a quarter-mil a month are outrageous. One of the expenses Christine lists includes more than $100,000 in cosmetic surgery -- her own. There's also thousands of dollars in boutique shopping, huge ATM withdrawals and other expenses Kevin's people say have nothing to do with child support.

A lot of what Christine lists as expenses are on credit card bills ... including her own attorney's fees.

And, Costner's accountant says there are one-time expenses that have nothing to do with child support, such as construction loans.

According to the docs, Kevin has been paying all the expenses for the kids, and will continue to do so. He says the reasonable amount -- the amount he is currently paying ... $51,940 a month.

As we reported, Christine has now agreed to leave the family house and get a place of her own by the end of August. His lawyer, Laura Wasser, will appear in court on July 5 to make sure Christine is ordered out by the end of August, if not before. At that hearing, we're told Christine will contest the validity of the prenup, and Wasser will argue it's rock solid.

We covered the messy divorce on a recent episode of The TMZ Podcast, available on all podcast platforms.

DC Young Fly Of Course I'm 💔 Over Jacky Oh! ... But God's Keeping Me Positive!!!


DC Young Fly is staying strong with the support of God and his children following the sudden death of his partner Jacky Oh! ... telling us it's important to stay positive, even when things get tough behind the scenes.

DC was back to work in NYC Wednesday, sharing he's understandably broken up over Jacky's death. DC admits his wounds are still raw, and he still cries over her loss ... but he's not someone who will post his emotional heartache online.

Overall, DC says his new mission is to continue to inspire people who may also be down after a significant loss.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

DC and Jacky have three beautiful kids -- ages 6, 2 and 10 months -- and admits the conversations with his young ones have been tough. Admittedly, DC says you really truly understand what those emotions are like until you experience a personal tragedy.

Jacky died on May 31 after undergoing some sort of medical procedure, shedding light on a larger conversation about cosmetic surgery.

DC acknowledges her death may go on to provide a teachable moment for some ... and wants everyone to make the best decision for their family and own personal energy.

Latto Forget More Plastic Surgery ... I Hired a Trainer!!!

Latto says she felt tempted to go under the knife again for another round of plastic surgery ... but convinced herself to strip weight the old-fashioned way and hire a personal trainer.

The "Put It On Da Floor" lyricist recently sat for a new interview with "Cosmopolitan" for their "Skin Issue" ... admitting her confidence in herself ultimately made her believe she could see results in the gym without going under the knife.

Latto says in the past, she got both a BBL and 360 liposuction -- which covers her entire torso -- but explained how surgery isn't a magic solution, people still have to take care of their bodies.

She says the decision to exercise with a trainer allows her to balance her workouts but still hold true to her schedule.

Much speculation around the safety of the surgeries has been sparked following the death of former "Wild 'N Out" star Jacky Oh! after it was reported she underwent an operation in Miami.

Medical safety isn't the only category in which Latto keeps her guard up ... she discussed her airport incident of 2021 where she was busted carrying a loaded firearm. TMZ Hip Hop broke the story ... Latto was detained at LAX and had to complete a 12-month diversion program to scrub her record.

She explained security guards can't always accompany travel along -- and her pretty face isn't going to protect itself.

Joe Giudice Makes Splash at 'RHONJ' Reunion ... Look Who's On the Phone!!!


Joe Giudice is back in the 'Real Housewives' universe after his cameo in the New Jersey reunion ... where he was looking for a surgical consultation, of all things!

The 'RHONJ' alum called his ex-wife Teresa on the phone just as the first of the 3-part reunion kicked off with host Andy Cohen. Teresa and the other housewives -- Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin, Rachel Fuda and Danielle Cabral -- seemed surprised.

As Teresa answered the phone, she said, "Look who's calling me: Joe Giudice," who has been living in the Bahamas since 2021 after leaving Italy following his deportation from the States.

Joe had an important question for Jennifer's plastic surgeon husband, Bill, who was not present either, so he addressed it to Teresa. Joe said, "Tre, ask Jennifer's husband, Bill, if he does bags under your eyes," while everyone chuckled.

Andy then snatched the phone from Teresa and asked, "Giudice, are you looking to get your eyes done?"

Hell no!! Joe said he was just researching the procedure for his uncle and pointed out, "[Mine] aren't baggy yet."

Besides all that ... we learned Joe has a few girlfriends in the Bahamas, and he never watched 'RHONJ' -- not even while he was in prison.

After everyone said their goodbyes, Andy hung up and remarked, "Wow, unexpected." Not so sure about that, but anyway ... it was a moment.

As we reported, Joe was convicted in 2014 of conspiracy to commit wire and bank fraud and served 41 months in federal prison. A judge ordered him to be deported to his native Italy, and he was eventually booted from the U.S. after losing several appeals.

Teresa was also convicted on the same charges and served 11 months in prison, but she was released and got divorced from Joe. She has since remarried to Luis Ruelas.

Priyanka Chopra Opens Up About Botched Nose Job ... Fell Into 'Deep, Deep Depression'

The Howard Stern Show/Sirius XM

Priyanka Chopra says she fell into a "deep, deep depression" after a botched nose procedure and thought her career in entertainment was totally over.

Chopra made the revelations during an interview with Howard Stern on his Sirius XM show, going into detail about the dark period earlier in her life.

The actress, who's married to Nick Jonas, told Stern that a physician recommended that she go under the knife to remove a polyp in her nasal cavity.

She followed the doctor's instructions and got the nose job, but, afterward, she says her face looked completely different, causing her to slip into a "deep, deep depression."

Not only did the surgery affect her physical appearance, but it negatively impacted her work. Chopra says she was fired from three films as a result of the bungled procedure, making her think that her career was “over before it started.”

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

She says things got so bad that she didn't even want to leave her house at times, but her late father -- who was a doctor as well -- convinced her to get corrective surgery despite her misgivings.

Chopra said, “I was terrified of that, but he was like, ‘I will be in the room with you. He held my hands through it and helped me build back my confidence.”

She says she got her career back on track with the help of Bollywood director Anil Sharma, and was grateful to him for giving her a supporting role in a movie, even though she was originally slated to play the lead. Chopra went on to star in several major Hollywood TV series, including Citadel and Quantico.

As for her marriage to Jonas, the two tied the knot in 2018 and had their first child via a surrogate in January. They named their little girl -- Malti Marie Chopra Jonas.

Latto Admits to Getting Plastic Surgery ... I Wouldn't Recommend It, Ladies!!!

Latto is coming clean about her experience with plastic surgery ... copping to getting "a little work" done after her recent bars made Coi Leray's body shape a trending topic.

The "Big Energy" rapper was discussing the downside of going under the knife on her '777 Radio' show on Apple Music, but says in her case, her procedures were done correctly as people often think she's au naturel.

However, Latto gave a stern warning to her cohost Brooklyn Nikole and all other young girls looking to fix "little tweaks" to find a healthy appreciation for their bodies because they'll end up obsessing over trips to the surgeon and can never please everyone.

Latto says her surgery still hasn't stopped her from editing pics or having wardrobe malfunctions but says being in the public eye since age 16 forced her hand.


Latto's recent Nicki Minaj diss "Put It On The Floor" angered Coi when she rapped that her blunts were bigger than the "Players" rapper, but the two have since made up ... with Coi apparently capitalizing on the moment.

On Friday, Coi dropped her new single -- aptly titled, "My Body!!!" -- to redirect the controversy to her streams.

Kim Kardashian Look-Alike OnlyFans Model Dead At 34 After Reported Plastic Surgery

Kim Kardashian look-alike and OnlyFans model Christina Ashten Gourkani has died, possibly after a plastic surgery procedure gone wrong.

Christina's death was detailed in a recent GoFundMe made by her family, who say they got a call last week from another family member, frantically screaming that she was dying ... something they say "instantly shattered our world."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

They quickly arrived at the hospital where they were told her health went in a steep decline after suffering a cardiac arrest and she didn't make it. Her family says the death's being investigated as a potential homicide -- related to a "medical procedure that took a turn for the worse."

There have been reports that the procedure Christina was undergoing involved plastic surgery ... but the family says they aren't going into more detail at this time.

As for the fundraiser, they're asking people to help reach their $40K goal to go towards Christina's memorial.

For those unaware, the model -- who also went by Ashten G -- didn't just garner a ton of followers on OnlyFans, but also had over 600K on IG at the time of her death ... getting a ton of attention for bearing a striking resemblance to Kim K.

Christina was 34.


Drake Posts Shirtless Thirst Trap... Fans Suspect Surgically Enhanced Abs!!!

Drake's latest thirst trap in the wee hours of the night is a hot shot, no doubt -- but it also has many fans questioning the authenticity of his abs, instead of just salivating over them like he probably intended.

Late Tuesday, Drizzy was obviously feeling the mood when he posted a photo to IG wearing nothing but a towel around his waist ... captioning the pic "5 min cold plunge for the soul."

It probably took about 5 minutes for fans to give their opinion on Drake's bod -- and many wondered if he had indeed gotten work done ... as they didn't spot the same muscle definition in his arms.

Drake's got a big tour this summer with 21 Savage, so it shouldn't shock anyway to see him getting in tip-top shape for those all shows, either. 🤷🏽‍♂️

IG MODEL MARY MAGDALENE Breast Reduction After Implant Pops ... I'm 20 Lbs. Lighter!!!

The Instagram model who's been down one breast -- thanks to one of her massive implants bursting -- is now sporting a new look that takes a major load off her back.

The Canadian model, who goes by Mary Magdalene on social media, tells us she underwent breast reduction surgery ... going from 5,000cc implants to a mere 700cc. If that sounds like a giant difference, it is -- without her famous pair she's a full 20 lbs. lighter!

Remember ... one of Mary's implants popped last month, leaving her with one 11-pound breast she referred to as her "uni-boob" and a bunch of saggy, tattooed skin where the other implant used to reside.

Mary says she's now a C cup after going under the knife ... a major difference from when she was walking around with K cups. It doesn't sound like those enormous implants did the body any good; she says her actual boobs were so damaged, she had no tissue left.


In addition to a breast reduction, Mary says plastic surgeons also performed a lift, implant exchange and liposuction.

The healing process was brutal ... she says she got an infection and a fever and needed antibiotics through an IV. However, she's feeling better now.

One more tidbit, shall we say ... Mary says she also had a vagina reduction, so she's no longer claiming to have the "world's fattest vagina." Someone call Guinness.

Some might call her a glutton for punishment -- or body dysmorphic -- as Mary says she's now had 50 surgeries, and plans to get more work on her cheeks and lips.

Madonna Stop Judging My Grammys Look ... It's 'Ageism and Misogyny'

Madonna is firing back at the haters who made fun of the way her face looked at the Grammys ... she says it's degrading and reeks of ageism and misogyny.

The pop star posted a lengthy social media rant Tuesday, addressing the jokes that were flying online during the Grammys, when she introduced Kim Petras and Sam Smith before they performed their Grammy-winning song "Unholy."

Madonna says the folks judging her physical appearance are focusing on the wrong thing -- Kim was the first trans woman to perform at the Grammys -- and she says the photos were "taken with a long lens camera by a press photographer that would distort anyone's face!!"

She says it's just the latest example of her being "caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny that permeates the world we live in."

64-year-old Madonna says anyone making wisecracks are part of a bigger problem ... she says our society refuses to celebrate women over the age of 45 and feels the need to punish women who, like her, are strong-willed, hard-working and adventurous.

Madonna's really digging in her heels ... saying she's never apologized for the way she looks or dresses and she sure as heck isn't going to start now.

While it was mostly Twitter users hurling insults, Madonna adds ... "I have been degraded by the media since the beginning of my career but I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come."

Madonna's also channeling another big winner from the Grammys, saying ... "In the words of Beyoncé 'You won't break my soul.'"

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Don't expect Madonna to shy away from the cameras, long lenses or otherwise ... she says she looks forward to many more years of subversive behavior, pushing boundaries, standing up to the patriarchy and enjoying her life.

Bottom line for Madonna ... "Bow down bitches!"

Uni-Boob IG Model I'm Not Mentally Ill ... Body Morphing Was My 'Extreme Sport'


The Instagram model who had one of her 38J breast implants pop is having her mental health questioned online ... but she says she's not ill and views plastic surgery as a hobby.

The Canadian model, who goes by Mary Magdalene on social media, tells us she started getting plastic surgeries at 18 and after 12 years and a ton of procedures, she says she started feeling like her plastic transformation was her own way of being an adrenaline junkie.

Mary says she's just like anyone who gets super into extreme sports ... but instead of climbing bigger mountains or jumping from higher heights, she went bigger and bigger with her injections ... from her lips, to her butt and, of course, her boobs.

Instagram / @1800leavemaryalone

As we reported ... Mary says she's going to change to a more "natural" look after one of her 11-pound boob implants popped, leaving her with a uni-boob and a bunch of tattooed skin.

Mary says her out-of-this-world surgeries brought her happiness over the years, but adds her feelings have changed and now she's going to change her appearance. In fact, she says if her implant didn't pop, she would have gone even bigger with her next procedure and doubled her already massive 38J cup size.

The IG model says she's going to do her next breast procedure in Brussels, and she's going under the knife twice for a breast reduction that will set her back nearly $33,000 ... and bring her breast implants down from 5,000 cc to 700cc.


Mary says she had a spiritual awakening after the incident, with her come-to-Jesus moment aided in part by some mind-altering substances ... and she wants to move away from what she sees as her current "bimbo" look.

And, get this ... Mary tells us she's going to save the excess skin cut off during her breast reduction surgery and save it in a jar ... as a reminder of what she's been through.


An Instagram model known for her out-of-this-world appearance says she's going back to a natural look ... because one of her massive implants popped!!!

Instagram / @1800leavemaryalone

The Canadian model, who goes by Mary Magdalene on social media, says the 5,000cc implant recently popped ... leaving her with an 11-pound breast she's calling her "uniboob," and a bunch of saggy, tattooed skin.

MM, who has dropped six figures on a wide array of plastic surgeries in her life, says she's going to take out her 38J implants and revert to her natural self ... openly wondering if the burst boob is a sign she needs to change her look.

Mary's mega boobs have gotten her in trouble before ... as we reported, last summer she claimed her 22-pound breasts got her booted from a flight from Canada to Dallas for looking "too explicit."

It's unclear what caused one of Mary's implants to rupture -- she's not saying -- but she's also considering reversing surgeries to other parts of her body ... including her butt.

Cardi B Kim K. Gave Me Nip/Tuck Hook Up ... Doctor Recommendations!!!

The Jason Lee Show

Cardi B is opening up more about her plastic surgery journey ... revealing she actually took surgeon recommendations from Kim Kardashian before going under the knife.

The Bronx-bred rapper is the first guest on Revolt TV's The Jason Lee Show, and audio from the interview first dropped on the Jason Lee Podcast where she talked about her cosmetic procedures -- including a nose job and butt lift -- and she gives props to the SKIMS founder for pointing her in the right direction.

Jason asked Cardi how she was able to find good docs she could trust to work on her face and her body ... and she says she did, in fact, phone a couple of the names Kim gave her.

She doesn't say whether she ended up going with any of them in the end.

Kim has been very candid about how much she loves giving beauty advice.

During a chat about Madonna's skincare line in 2018, she told Fashionista ... "I love analyzing someone's face and going with them to a doctor, and being like, wait, a little Botox here."


As for Cardi, she's been open about her different procedures and she's even shared some advice of her own.

BTW, The "Bodack Yellow" rapper looks damn good ... so, she chose good docs!!!

Lensa AI 'Magic Avatars' Celeb Surgeons Getting Self-Portrait Requests ... Warn of Dangers

Lensa AI's new "Magic Avatar" feature is all the rage online ... and also in plastic surgery offices, where some patients are willing to pay for those images to become them in real life!!!

Dr. Terry Dubrow, who cohosts "Botched," tells TMZ … 2 people have already approached him asking if he can turn them into their Lensa AI self-portraits, which were generated by the app.

Dubrow -- who says he thought it was a crazy prank request at first -- tells us he turned them down because what they wanted wasn't possible in the operating room.

He also says he's concerned this trend is going to take unrealistic expectations to the next level -- making people feel worse about what they see in the mirror, and not wanting to show their real selves in public anymore.

Ditto for Dr. Deepak Dugar -- who's had clients like Mia Khalifa. He tells us he's actually had 5 Lensa-related requests over the past week, and it gravely worries him as well.

Dugar says he thinks this can actually become pretty dangerous if folks get too accustomed to their AI avatars ... as they might start to blend reality and fantasy.

Basically, the features exhibited in some of these AI renderings do not translate to real human bone structure -- but even if someone insisted, Dr. Dugar says he'd steer them away from it completely, because it’s simply not safe to even attempt.

He also says he thinks this is just a fad that'll die down the more people participate.

Likewise, Dr. Ben Talei -- who's done work on celebs like Shanna Moakler -- tells us he too has received a Lensa AI inquiry, but notes he's gotten AI avatar submissions a lot over the past few years.

He says while Lensa might be the new iteration of this avatar fascination ... the phenomenon actually traces back to Snapchat.

All the same, Talei says his fear is a dysmorphic patient actually does find a doctor with the same vision for a surgery … something he says no ethical surgeon would perform.

Dr. Talei tells us the medical field can only hope people don't start finding outlets for this sort of wishful thinking, because the results could be disastrous.
