The REAL Housewives of Atlanta are Back!!!
On Thursday, July 30th, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" kicked off the new season with a bang! The housewives welcomed a new member, former Xscape band member and grammy-winning singer/songwriter, Kandi Burruss and of course the show wouldn't be complete without drama from housewife, Kim Zolciak. From her suitor and mystery man, Big Poppa, to her drama with Nenee and her close to near death experience with cancer, wherever she goes, drama follows! She is best known for her big blonde hair, if you watched last season we all found out it was a wig, Big Poppa (which will hopefully make a cameo this season) and her foundness in all things gold, shiny, and new. And this housewife is very open about her beauty routine, last season she took another housewife, Sheree Whitfield to get Botox. Although receiving Botox injections around the eyes for smile lines, the glabella, or on the forehead is very common, most people made a big deal out of it because Kim claimed to be 29 at the time of the show and the injection. I recently read an article in Marie Claire that stated that research now show that many younger women, even in their late twenties, are starting young and getting Botox treatments. The reason is because Botox works by reducing the activity of the muscles that can cause wrinkles in the skin. After years of wrinkling and crinkling, the facial lines can become more permanent especially true for people who are very animated with their facial expressions. Botox can temporarily reduce these wrinkles and as many young women hope, help prevent new wrinkles from forming.
