Did anybody see Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty last night? I thought it was really good, actually!
She and her friends went to Thailand to see what was considered beautiful in that part of the world and the price women paid to embody that. In Thailand, that included things like layering brass rings around women’s necks to elongate them, and using skin bleach to become as pale as possible. They interviewed one woman who had a terrible reaction to a facial skin bleaching solution, which left her scarred and embarrassed. That was the “price” she paid for beauty. I was intrigued and I can’t wait to see where else they go!
There were a couple times where she was tip toeing around being offensive (getting the giggles after meditating with a monk for 40 minutes,) but that girl has some serious Southern charm and I thought she pulled it off. Ben, on the other hand, was highly annoyed.
