7 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Botched’
Botched has become one of the most fascinating reality shows on television right now. The series tackles the hard job of fixing extreme plastic surgeries gone wrong. Instead of turning it into something superficial, these doctors play the role of the hero by taking on patients who are looking for life changing surgeries they cannot get anywhere else. The stars of the show are Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif, two of the most highly demanded (and hottest) plastic surgeons in Los Angeles. These two are no stranger to the camera. They both started out as reality stars on Bravo’s series Real Housewives. Nassif was formerly married to Adrienne Maloof, a former Housewife on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills while Terry is married to current Orange County Housewife, Heather Dubrow. Today, Nassif and Dubrow are stars all on their own since the success of their own reality show, Botched. The third season of Botched is currently airing, as well as it’s spin-off show, Botched by Nature, so before you tune in, take a look at our 7 things you might not have known about Botched:
7. How The Show Began
Paul Nassif said in an interview with Celebuzz that he was in the talks of doing a plastic surgery show way back when he was working on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “I think it happened one time with the executive producers of the Housewives show when I was finished with that. Actually, even during that we were always looking for a good segue into a good plastic surgery show since there hasn’t really been anything since Dr. 90210. We wanted to do something where we’re really helping people, more of a human interest, life changing, but at the same time add some shock value into it. So we had a discussion once and thought about it. Then I called Dr. Terry Dubrow,” said Nassif.
6. Friends for 17 Years
One of the best things about the show Botched is the friendly banter between these two best friends. It’s pretty clear just from looking through their social media and watching an episode of the show, these two love to tease one another. This kind of friendship only comes from a long history! “When I first went into practice I worked with his family a little bit and he was still in his plastic surgery training and then he came out and we started working together. We have had about 40 years of plastic surgery experience together and we’ve seen it all. At least we thought until we did this show,” Dubrow said. Nassif chimed in and said, before the show started, dating back 15 years ago, Dubrow would regularly come to his office in Beverly Hills once a week to visit with patients, because Dubrow’s practice is in Orange County. “Terry has been teasing me for many years. I let him! It goes in one ear and out the other — I kind of ignore it. And when it comes to working together: we’re friends, we like each other, we’re like brothers and we’re both talented surgically. That’s symbiotic in some of these cases where we’re bouncing things off each other to see what we can do to get the best possible results,” Nassif said.
