Extreme Makeover Indeed

One of the worst things being promoted by a television network right now is Extreme Makeover. The thesis is that your miserable life--due to your gut, double-chin, bags under your eyes, drooping face, etc.-can be reversed by walking the cross of a surgical makeover.

Well bestselling author Olivia Smith has died undergoing a facelift.

Blessed Mother Teresa pray for our society that makes people feel unwelcomed if they are not perfect. Teach us to feel the acceptance of the God, Our Father and Creator. Release us from the demons that make people feel unloved.

From ThisisLondon:

"Best-selling author Olivia Goldsmith has died after her facelift went wrong.

She was best known for The First Wives Club which was turned into the 1996 hit film starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton as three friends who take their revenge on cheating husbands who dump them for younger women.

The 54-year-old writer, whose real name was Justine Rendal, had been in a deep coma for more than a week caused by a reaction to an anaesthetic while she was having plastic surgery. "
