Cayetana James Fitz-Stuart – Plastic Surgeries
Cayetana was nothing short of a celebrity in Spain. She was the Duchess of Alba – one of the most powerful women in Spain. Her countrymen loved her for her flamboyant attitude and spontaneity. Aside from that, she was also a fashionista, having been often featured in Vogue‘s Best Dressed list. To look young and stunning are a must for most royals, and in order to maintain her youth, Cayetana often took help of plastic surgeries. She made big investments in order to keep herself appear young and beautiful. Looking at her before and after pictures, we think she should have called her attorneys to sue the doctors who worked on her face!
Nichelle Nichols – Dementia
Nichelle Nichols, born in 1932, is an American actress and singer. Nichols is mostly known for playing communications officer Lieutenant Uhura aboard the USS Enterprise in the ‘Star Trek’ television series between 1966–1969. Nichols’s role was groundbreaking as one of the first African American female characters on American television not portrayed as a servant. Today, according to medical documents the star was diagnosed with “moderate progressive dementia” and was described as having “major impairment of her short-term memory and moderate impairment of understanding abstract concepts, sense of time, place and immediate recall.” That is quite common for 85-year-old’s, but we still hope that she will get to live the last years of her life with lesser suffering as possible.
Mel Gibson – Alcohol Abuse
Well-known actor and director Mel Gibson struggled with alcoholism for a long time. Once touted by People Magazine as the “Hotest Man Alive”, Mel has certainly lost his charms with his sunken eyes and wrinkles etched on his face. With a growing concern for his health, Mel finally joined Alcoholics Anonymous. He confesses openly that without their help, he wouldn’t have made it. Now, he is a man on a mission, trying to re-establish himself in the movie industry and restore his fallen glory. We do hope it turns out to be good for his bank account, too.
