Ariana Madix thought she'd found the filter for her — and then things took a "terrifying" turn. Addressing her followers in Instagram Stories on May 5, the Vanderpump Rules bartender spilled all the details of her sordid, face-slimming quest. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

"So, I've talked before about how I want a skinny face," the Fancy AF Cocktails author said. "I've gained like 20, 25 pounds since starting Vanderpump Rules. Working on getting a little bit fitter. But I found this filter called Skinny Face, and I got really excited about it." That excitement was premature. 

Taking her hand down from her face, Ariana laughed: "Now, I look like the [haggard] food critic from Ratatouille. What is going on? There's like — what is that? It's terrifying." For the record, we think it would take a bit more than a strange filter to make the lovely Ariana look anywhere close to scary ... but we'll grant her that she looks even better unfiltered.

Ariana didn't want to leave her fans with a "terrifying" image. Returning with a new filter, she said: "This one makes me look super tan, but I just feel like I needed to post something as a palate cleanser for that last one because, oh my god."
