For those who are curious about the latest cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery procedures, 2009 is the year for yet another television show showcasing the latest quick fixes. "Addicted To Beauty" is a reality TV-inspired show that takes place in a full-service medspa.
The show is focused on the staff's perception of their clients and the latest beauty fixes available; the most popular picks at this spa include Botox, lip implants and the basic spray tan, but the show will highlight the hordes of women who head to this beauty destination to feed their addiction to looking younger.
“Obsession with beauty is addictive to watch and “Addicted to Beauty” gives our audience a vicarious glimpse into that fascinating world,” said Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for Oxygen. From RDF USA, “Addicted to Beauty” is executive produced by Chris Coelen, Greg Goldman, and Mike Duffy for RDF ("Secret Millionaire,” “Wife Swap”), Mechelle Collins and Kevin Dill (”Millionaire Matchmaker,” “Sunset Tan”) and Scott Dunlop ("Real Housewives of Orange County”).
