A Real Housewife went under the knife for a plastic pick me up. Not exactly shocking news, right? Still, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes is facing harsh criticism for getting a nose job, smaller breast implants and a lift, and liposuction around her waist last April.
Come on, people. We're not going to name names (Heidi Montag), but haven't we seen far worse than this before? Never fear: The Real Housewives of New York City's Jill Zarin came to NeNe's verbal rescue with a few choice words for those bashing her Southern pal. "Stop bullying my friend NeNe," Zarin told Hollywoodlife. "Leave NeNe alone. NeNe is a good friend and a very good person. She does not look plastic at all, she looks beautiful and natural."
Haters be damned: NeNe is loving her upgrades -- regardless of the backlash. She spills to People, "I'm very comfortable and confident in myself. I just wanted a tune up. I still wanted to look like NeNe, the black woman that I am, but a better version."
Jill continues to echo that rah-rah message: "I just went to Kim Kardashian's birthday party with her on Saturday and she was looking fierce. NeNe looks better than ever. Her skin was glowing and she was on fire!"
So wait, is NeNe Jill's new Bethenny?
