E! To Debut New Bridal Plastic Surgery Series "Bridalplasty"

E! has ordered episodes of a new program that mixes a wedding competition with extreme plastic surgery. Bridalplasty combines elements of a game show competition, dream wedding, and plastic surgery documentary. Read about it in the Hollywood Reporter:

Each week, a group of women competes head-to-head in such challenges as writing wedding vows and planning honeymoons. The winner receives the chance to choose a plastic surgery procedure from her "wish list." She's given the procedure immediately, and results are shown at the start of the following week's episode. One by one, the women are voted out by their competitors and, according to the show's description, "possibly walking away with nothing and losing [their] chance to be the perfect bride." The last bride standing will receive a "dream wedding," where she will reveal her new appearance to friends, family and the groom. "Viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery," E! said.

The plastic surgeon from the Swan will be performing all the procedures, and the host of the show is Shanna Moakler.

No, I have nothing to do with this program, but I have heard from a few Hollywood producers that there are a few plastic surgery-related programs currently in the works. This one sounds quite similar to the Swan, which aired several years ago for one full season. I bet there will be a lot of people watching, especially since these brides have got to be absolutely crazy to be featured in a program like this!

Thanks for reading.

This show sounds very disturbing to me and I think it will send the wrong message to women. I also feel that plastic surgery is very serious and not to be taken lightly.

Interesting. I think I may watch an episode or two.

I think that it's said that plastic surgery is being turned into a sport, though. These women obviously have some sort of confidence problem and thus should not undergo ANY form of plastic surgery until they have been worked through.

They should also remember that their soon-to-be husbands love them and the way they look, or they wouldn't be getting married to them.
