MedSpa Reality TV... Unbelievable!

Hard to believe, but we should’ve seen it coming... a reality show about a medical spa has hit the airwaves. Last night, the Oxygen channel debuted a new reality series called “Addicted to Beauty”. It follows the daily antics of “Changes Plastic Surgery and Spa” in La Jolla, CA.

All I have to say is, after watching this ridiculous show you’ll never complain about your staff again! And, if this is what medical spas are like in La Jolla, am I ever glad I’m on the East Coast!

The show centers around Dianne in the midst of a divorce who joined forces with Dr. Gilbert Lee, plastic surgeon. Reminiscent of the Cat Woman, Dianne thinks her staff is her family, which explains the total lack of control, disrespect and dysfunctionality.

Her Spa Director, Shannyn, is equally as disfigured from excessive aesthetic procedures. I didn’t see much management of the staff or spa during the show, but hey, just watching her try to portray an executive with some management experience was entertainment enough.

Gary and Ronnie’s responsibilities have yet to be determined. Between crying fits and backstabbing I never quite got the gist of what their job descriptions actually were. Only Natasha, Dianne’s assistant, actually did some work as she is aspiring one day to own her own medical spa. I actually never did see any "medical spa" procedures or staff members other than Dr. Lee's nurse.

Poor Dr. Lee. He seems like such a talented plastic surgeon with a wonderful personality to boot, to be hooked up with such drama and incompetence with the circus staff of the medical spa.

Showing the worst possible side of a medical spa, I’m not sure if a show like this will help or hurt the our industry, but I can honestly say, it definitely was entertaining!

Sounds like the producers hired and wrote the script for this circus. Reality TV IS scripted. I would be embarrassed to put myself out there like that. Time will tell if his gamble pays off.

This is something I would like to watch for entertainment. I could never imagine people wasting time, talent, production for something like this. I hope they can achieve what they want to achieve by this program. Again, I'll be watching it to be entertained and no more other expectations, whatsoever.
