Looking like she’s had bad plastic surgery to make her look older, the former reality star stepped out for Zappos.com Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & 1/2 on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday.
Kate Gosselin recently insisted she hasn’t had a facelift.
“I am probably one of the rare few who de-age,” she said.
Gosselin then denied claims she’s dating her bodyguard Steve Neild.
“I’m single! Still and always,” she said.
“Because in my job as a single parent to provide for eight kids, my safety is imperative to them,” she added, justifying Neild’s constant presence.
“I’m not going to give out past horror stories, but it’s warranted for sure. He keeps them safe.”
Kate Gosselin Denies Getting Plastic Surgery, Claims She 'De-Ages'
Has Kate Gosselin had more plastic surgery?
The 36-year-old mother of eight, looks nothing like she did in the first season of "Jon and Kate Plus 8," but when she showed up for the first day of her new job as a blogger for a coupon site, Gosselin looked like she was debuting a new face.
A source tells Us Weekly the former reality star is "consumed with her appearance."
And that's not hard to believe since Kate received a free tummy tuck on television in 2007, was rumored to get breast implants in 2009, tans three times a week and had what looked like botched Botox injections in June 2010.
According to a plastic surgeon who does not treat Gosselin, it appears that she might have had more than just a face lift.
"It appears Kate may have lost weight as well as having undergone a face and necklift so that her lower face and jawline appear smoother and more defined," Dr. Jennifer Walden told Hollywoodlife. "[She] possibly [had] an eyelid lift for younger appearing eyes with a little different shape, Botox to the forehead, and rhinoplasty surgery that lowered and straightened the bridge of her nose.
When Kate appeared on "The View" in July 2010, she spoke about her experiences going under the knife.
"I've had a tummy tuck we all know that," she said, but wouldn't admit to getting a boob job or Botox injections.
"Why is it so fascinating? I got a good bra!" she said. "Botox? Absolutely not. Boobs? No. Tummy tuck, yes. We all know that. I run every day. I work out, I'm healthy, I want to look as good as I possibly can."
Kate Gosselin still insists she’s all natural, again shooting down reports that she’s had plenty of work done to look as good as she does, especially after giving birth to 8 children. Below is video of the interview in question.
You might remember that Kate has been subject to plastic surgery rumors before, but she always maintained there was nothing artificial about her whatsoever.
On the contrary, she credited her incredible figure and wrinkle-free face to healthy eating, taking proper care of her body and, last but not least, plenty of exercise.
She does the same during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Bravo’s Andy Cohen. The entire interview is below, with the comments referred to next at the 5- through to the 7-minute mark in it.
“What did you have done, what is different?” Cohen asks, right after showing a photo of Kate taken days after she gave birth to sextuplets.
“Probably 40 pounds [18.1 kg], for a start. That was probably 3 days after I had sextuplets,” Kate says.
But there’s more.
“I am probably one of the rare few who de-age,” she adds, refusing to own up to any procedure she might have had.
Kate Gosselin also describes the post-pregnancy period as “the roughest time ever,” pointing out that there was no way she couldn’t look better afterwards.
“You have to get better, right? You can’t get worse than that,” she says.
Kate, as we also informed you earlier today, is now preparing for a new reality show – a dating series, this time – and, as such, she’s doing the media rounds to promote it.
While she’s winning in that field, not even she can win them all. Earlier today, the CouponCabin CEO confirmed that they fired Kate as their blogger because she did not work well with the image of “authenticity that we set out to build almost a decade ago.”
