julie_chen_plastic_surgeryIn a compelling ten minutes of television, CBS host Julie Chen opened up about how some harsh advice she received during her younger years as a TV journalist in Ohio contributed to her getting cosmetic surgery to, she described ‘open up’ her eyes.

Chen talks about the irony of the controversial procedure, noting that, in fact, her career did start to gain momentum after she had the surgery. 

WATCH! It’s a compelling story that was no doubt difficult to tell, and is being met with both great praise and harsh criticism. At the very least, we should give her some credit for being honest enough to tell it.

Her honesty pulls reveals some of the harsh realities faced by many people in the television business. She could easily have kept this a secret if she wanted to, and I have to applaud anyone who has the courage to be completely upfront about anything personal.
