Welcome to the World's Worst Botox Party

Welcome to the World's Worst Botox Party

So you've heard of Botox parties, right? I know, it's so six years ago, yet news organizations keep recycling this old story. (Oddly, though, I've never heard of one of these in real life.) The latest resurrection is an unintentionally amusing look back at a 2002 party:

  • The scene involves serious wildlife. And salsa: "Even [Dr. Gregory] Roche's wife, Bonnie, is involved. She made the guacamole, salsa and beef tenderloin. She got the flowers and made the family dogs, cats, parrot and pet raccoons behave."
  • Poor Bonnie was her husband's guinea pig: "A few months ago, her husband experimented on her, injecting her lip with a tiny dose of Botox to see what would happen. She couldn't whistle or sip through a straw for three months until it wore off."
  • The doctor talks like a drug dealer: "I think it's an entry-level drug. It gets people in the door," Dr. Roche says.
  • There's bruising! And awkward joking: Most people who get Botox don't bruise, but one fair-skinned patient's eye begins to swell. "Don't tell anyone you got Botox," Dr. Roche jokes. "I won't," she responds playfully. "I'll tell them you hit me."

Sounds like fun, huh?

I keep envisioning people running around with needles, with the wife being unable to drink through a straw, with one poor woman having a puffy bruised eye — a total melee. What a nightmare.

Same here. That sounds like an awful "party".
