I’ve been getting emails about Naomie Olindo’s nose for the past couple of days and I suppose we need to address it. The feedback I’ve been getting is 100% negative. People say she had some character and personality to her face and now she looks like everyone else. While I agree that all the kids today who are getting nose jobs end up getting basically the same nose, I think she looks great. Again, I am the only one. Someone said, “Naomie’s nose job almost as big a mistake as Jennifer Grey’s.”
I feel like she was pretty before and she is pretty afterward and if she is happy, and she is, more power to her. If I wasn’t so terrified of surgery and had the money, I’d get a lot of stuff done starting with a breast reduction. It would be fantastic to have round boobs on my chest again rather than long boob down to my belly button. And I’d be doing it for myself not for anyone else’s viewing pleasure. Just as Naomie says she had her surgery.
Unfortunately for Naomie, trolls on social media feel the need to express their opinion directly to people they don’t know. I find this bizarre. This is not even something that happened on the show. It’s more like going up to a random stranger in the Piggly Wiggly and saying, “You’ve made a horrible decision about your outfit. That color washes you out and for the love of God, put that spreadable cheese back where you found it and do a juice cleanse until you drop 20 pounds. I’m just being real with you.” and flouncing off.
This doesn’t mean you can’t express your opinion to me in an email, or in comments here. I just think people who attack reality people on their social media have some sort of character flaw. It is unkind to flock to their social media and insult their looks. I feel differently about behaviors. If you see a reality person being nasty or rude or behaving badly I still don’t advocate confronting them directly unless you come from a place of compassion. But that’s just me. As for this site, I’ve always said we talk about the behaviors we see, and the fashion choices, and perhaps the fake hair, fake nails, fake boobs, fake noses but we don’t say negative things about their natural features. There are exceptions of course. It is very hard to ignore the fact that Nene Leakes nose grows back every time she has a nose job. Because that is a medical mystery. And pointing out here (not on her delusional social media) that Phaedra Parks is in fact never going to be a Wilhelmina model here is not the same as mocking her delusions ON HER SOCIAL MEDIA.
It’s a fine line I guess. Clearly, I am in the minority opinion about this. It’s the same reason I don’t have a single photo on the Internet. Though there was this one photo of my boobs in a bra and some point. Tee Cee was the first to chime in that she was not a fan. But that image is long gone. I wish I still had it so I could relive the glory days. I still get comments all the time though from people who THINK they have seen my photo and who would like me to know I am unattractive. It’s a photo that appears to be a selfie taken from a phone. It’s been posted on sites where people claim it is me. I feel sorry for the poor lady who is being associated with me. It generally comes with other insults about my weight, and how all I do is sit on the couch all day and don’t take showers. And pretty much every other thing I’ve shared here about myself. UPDATE! I just got out of the shower for the second time in two days! Because, Lent I am still fat as fuck though. My point, and I did at some point have one, is that it makes me sad that Naomie got a big discount on a nose job for talking about it on IG, and she is happy with it, and people are telling her it was a mistake.
Here is how she responded to one “helpful follower”…
“You are part of the problem. If someone doesn’t like something about themselves and has the opportunity to change it, do you think they shouldn’t because beauty comes from within? It’s a very personal choice and thank god I feel so secure + happy about my decision that nothing pea minds like you could ever say would ever affect how I feel now. Use your brain.”
In my personal life, when I have had colleagues get a surgery that I wasn’t particularly impressed with, all there ever is to say is “Congratulations! I’m so happy, you are happy!” Because that is what kind people do.
But now, here, in this space, feel free to go ahead and tell me what you really think. I know you have all been chomping at the bit. At least she has the maturity to make these decisions about her own face hand the trolls. Other than Brielle, who does not, and still denies doing anything just like her mother. WHAT? I’m just saying!
So, go ahead. Tell me what you think of the nose job. I’m sure she’ll never read this…
