VIENNA GIRARDI was the winner of the 2010 season of the reality dating show “The Bachelor.” What she won, albeit briefly, was the heart of Jake Pavelka. The pair have since broken up — she says because of his lust for fame; he says because she’s a liar.
I didn’t know any of this, or who Ms. Girardi was, until I read a headline about the nose job she procured for herself in July, at which point she was added to the list of celebrities I am obsessed with because of their nose jobs (Jennifer Aniston, Tori Spelling, Heidi Montag, Ashlee Simpson, among others).
“I always felt like I had this little face with, like, a Mr. Potato Head nose!” Ms Girardi, 25, told Us Weekly magazine, where she made her debut in before and after pictures that showed a straighter, more upwardly sloped nose. “In school, they called me Pinocchio. After ‘The Bachelor,’ bloggers called me ‘horse face.’ ”
