BET greenlights K. Michelle’s show about reversing plastic surgery
After surviving her traumatic surgeries, r&b singer uses her platform to help other women
Over the last two years, K. Michelle has gone through a well publicized and traumatizing ordeal regarding complications caused by botched cosmetic procedures. The Love and Hip-Hop star is now drawing from that pain as inspiration for a new series.
According to BlkCosmo, the singer is currently producing a show which aims to help women reverse cosmetic surgeries they now regret. The show has reportedly finally found a home at BET.
Last December,The Jasmine Brand revealed that the 33 year-old was shopping around an idea for a new reality series that would spotlight women who have chosen, similarly to her own procedure, to have harmful silicone removed from their bodies.
The site is now stating BET has bought into the idea and committed to bringing the Tennessee native’s passion project to fruition. Jesse Collins Entertainment whose credits include The New Edition Story, The Bobby Brown Story, Real Husbands of Hollywood, Amanda Seales: I Be Knowin’, The BET Awards and more has also signed on to produce the series.
K. Michelle has been a vocal advocate for women who are suffering the after effects of plastic surgery, most notably during an episode of TV One’s series Uncensored. During the show, the Love & Hip Hop star was incredibly candid about how expensive and emotionally taxing it is to get silicone butt fillers removed.
“No one knows why this girl can’t walk and why her immune system is weak,” she explains. “We did an MRI and saw that my whole buttocks area and hips were black. All you saw was darkness from the top of the butt to the side, and it was from the silicone injections.”
Her reversal procedures led to a host of physical complications, including emergency blood transfusions. Despite that, K. Michelle says she hopes that her measures to take back her health will improve her health and her ability to have more children.
