Brigitte Nielsen broadcast her plastic surgery live on German TV

In May, we told you about washed up actress/model Brigitte Nielsen’s plan to pose for Playboy to commemorate the first time she did it 20 years ago. Back then, she went on and on about all the plastic surgery she was going to have to prepare herself. It looks like the boozy blond D-lister has managed to parlay that into a TV show in Germany. More than 2 million German viewers watched Nielsen have a boob job on live TV recently.

She looks like she’s gone ten rounds with Rocky – but it’s only the beginning for Brigitte ‘We Can Rebuild Her’ Nielsen.

Over two million Germans tuned in on prime-time TV to watch the latest reality show shocker – the ex-wife of Sly Stallone getting a total plastic-surgery makeover.

Brigitte, whose breasts stayed buoyant while her movie career sagged, signed up for the ultimate in questionable taste telly; going under the knife in a bid to look young once more.

The viewer is spared no excruciating detail: fat is vacuumed from her thighs, her eyes are Botoxed and those famous upper-assets – she calls the left one Titsi and the other one Tatsi – are being drained of their silicon to bring her down to more manageable proportions.

Nielsen hopes to revive both her looks and her career prospects at the hands of German plastic surgeon Gerhard Sattler.

‘I know I am the first female celebrity in the world who has allowed herself to be filmed like that in an operating theatre,” said Brigitte, 44.

‘I know I will be breaking a taboo. But I’m sure that it will provoke a new discussion. It’s time things change. I feel 30 and want to look that way again.’

The show is entitled “From Old to New; Brigitte Nielsen in the Celebrity Clinic” and viewers will see Brigitte in upcoming episodes also get new teeth and watch every incision and injection as she is remoulded from her head to her toes.

Brigitte is no stranger to cosmetic surgery. At the end of this highly public bout, however, she hopes she will make the grade to be able to strip off for Playboy at year’s end, 20 years after she first graced the mag’s cover.

[From the Daily Mail]

I can’t say I’m surprised by the latest desperate move by Brigitte for attention. The woman’s been on several reality shows, her latest walk of shame being “Celebrity Rehab.” I’ll never forget seeing her frolic topless in a thong with a puppy while downing a bottle of vodka on “The Surreal Life,” or making out with Flavor Flav on “Strange Love.” It’s pretty clear the woman has no shame. What I can’t figure out is why 2 million Germans cared enough to watch it. Those crazy Germans- they’ll watch anything! Aren’t they responsible for making David Hasselhoff think he’s a rock star?

Note by Celebitchy: Here’s a clip of Brigitte getting liposuction. It’s not that graphic. I haven’t heard of this program at all and we live in Germany and get RTL, but we don’t watch a lot of TV either. Also the David Hasselhoff thing is often brought up by people to diss Germans’ taste in music and pop culture, but there is an appreciation for campy and nostalgic performances here which could easily explain it.

    Didn’t help her.

  2. Because I say So says:

    She’s only 44? No wonder she’s getting such a body makeover. Her hard way of living has definitely impacted her appearance. Such a shame that a doctor would do this, and even sadder that she’s recording it.

  3. Carrie says:

    Nah, she must be older than that! I know for afact she’s older than I am. I think 50 is nearer the mark.

  4. Arvedia says:

    What this with David Hasselhoff? I am German, but I am not aware that he is/was a major star here. Brigitte Nielsen is, though. Pity.

  5. Meredith says:

    Huh, even the pic of her at 22 on Wikipedia looks like she’s older than 22. Maybe she’s just one of those people who always looks older than she is, but of course the hard living doesn’t help. That last pic is the best of her in a long time .. hope she’s getting the help she needs to be happy.

    ‘I know I am the first female celebrity in the world who has allowed herself to be filmed like that in an operating theatre,” => operating CIRCUS
    This will never make her feel 30 again, because it’s coming from the inside, and I don’t only mean mentally, but also the way the body is working : feeling full of energy, no bone troubles or puffy eyes in the morning etc.
    By the way, the big breast makes her look fat

  7. melodee says:

    I cannot believe she is only 44!!!!!!!!!!!! I just turned 60 and I look WAY better than her after picture!!!!!!!! Stop drinking and smoking cigarettes!!!!

  8. melanie says:

    She is definitely not 44. We walked down the runway together in Rome in 1981 when I had just started my modeling career, and she already had a reputation. Back then she was 3-4 years older than me, and I am now 48.

    I found your blog on google and read this great post. I just added this site to my Google News Reader. I Look forward to reading more here in the future.

    I don’t believe she is only 44. Though bad nutrition and no exercise will result in making us older than our age. Is she a heavy drinker or drug user? This too ages people terribly.

    It’s so sad, all she really needs to do is eat better and exercise. She has the body of an athlete, seriously, she could be amazing if she weren’t so lazy and opting for the “easy out”. Too bad. Plastic surgery will not last and especially if she doesn’t change her lifestyle.

  13. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, but I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net might be much more useful than ever before.
