So yesterday we reported on advance clips from 17 year-old Courtney Stodden’s Dr. Drew “Lifechangers” appearance where she got an ultrasound to determine whether her breasts are “rill,” as she, her stage mother and her 51 year-old husband have all insisted on. When I covered this, I mentioned that the sonogram probably wouldn’t reveal anything and that perhaps Courtney has had non-traditional enlargement where she’s had fat transferred to her breasts. I just never thought that she would willingly get a sonogram when she has breast implants that could easily be seen. This girl has been trained to be shameless, though, and even when the plastic surgeon revealed that she had implants she denied it and said “no, I don’t have implants.”
Then, as Evil Beet reports, the sonogram expert and the plastic surgeon totally backtracked and said “It could be bone.” You could tell they were just covering for her because they felt awkward pointing out that she was a blatant liar. It was ridiculous.
However, at least two potentially knowledgeable people commented on Dr. Drew’s site that the ultrasound wasn’t performed correctly. User Jamie wrote “I’ve been an ultrasound tech for 17 years. I saw the episode today and have been bothered ever since. Like someone else who posted said…the tech on the show is using the wrong transducer. The first images they were showing were not even of breast tissue it was of her liver! When they briefly scan her again from a different angle it was still hard to tell because they were using the wrong transducer! This proved nothing. I could care less about this girl. But, if this is a legitimate medical show it failed today! Do a real ultrasound!”
True, the show really did fail. They failed by putting this creature on, they failed by not doing the ultrasound correctly (allegedly) and then they failed by accepting her lies and weakly backtracking. Either there was an implant there or there wasn’t. Don’t just take that girl at her word, that was the whole point of the ultrasound. If you’re going to pull a stupid stunt like that at least do it right.
I have to use this photo again.
