Kim Kardashian: 'Botox Just Wasn't Necessary'

Kim Kardashian had a painful start to the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, enduring a bruised face as a result of a televised Botox procedure. After emails and comments flooded her blog, the 29-year-old reality star decided to come clean about the incident. “On the show you saw I had some bruising around my eyes after the procedure, which is totally natural, but because I hadn’t looked into the side effects, I freaked out,” she writes on her website. “In no way was Dr. Kassabian a bad doctor… it wasn’t a botched job at all!!” That doesn’t, however, mean that she’ll be trying it again anytime soon. “I am not against botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non surgical procedure, but I think when you’re young there are other ways you can look after your skin….Botox just wasn’t necessary for me at this age.” The star points to FusionBeauty’s Illumifill, a product that she represents as a spokesperson, as her go-to instead.

KIM K IS THE BIGGEST LIAR EVER!!! Botox is the least of your worries. What about the eyelid lift multiple injections to cheeks and lips, breast and butt implants etc. Botox does not make you look like the cat lady. Her face is identical to Heidi Montag. At least Heidi is not a liar!

I can’t imagine why any 29-year-old thinks they need botox, even a 29-year-old in Hollywood. In my opinion, Kim is one of the most beautiful women on earth and she’ll be beautiful 20 years from now, even without surgery or other procedures.

All of the Kardasian girls are GORGEOUS the way they are, and Kim seems like a total sweetie. No botox needed at all! But if she, or anyone for that matter, wants to try it, kudos to them for wanting to feel and look beautiful :) <3

I think Kim is a beautiful, well-established business woman. Though she did initially go through with the procedure, it did help her realize that not everything/everyone in Hollywood needs enhancing. She is a beautiful woman all on her own and doesn’t need any beauty enhancers.

guess who on

Right ….. She’s not going to do botox. hahahaha! she just wont do it on TV again.

who cares? she only did it and is STLL talking about it to stay in the news because she’s pathetic.

Botox was necessary–for the show’s producers to fulfill their episode order. This plotline was obviously cooked up in a “story meeting”…just like the “lost” engangement ring!
