May 21, 2003 http://www.etonline.com/celebrity/a15945.htm
Reality vixen and famed comedienne KATHY GRIFFIN will be the host of NBC's upcoming summer reality show, "Average Joe," so the fiery-haired TV diva wanted to glam up for her new small-screen gig!
Kathy came to ET for a little makeover magic, and tonight you're invited to tune in as she goes through the entire invigorating process!
The first issue for Kathy? Taming those wild, wavy tresses at the hip ART LUNA salon in Hollywood. Hairstylist LINDA CHO straightened Kathy's rebellious locks using a Japanese method that can take up to five hours and last around six months. "I'm going to have straighter hair after 50 hours of chemicals," Kathy joked. "They're going to set it on fire at some point!"
With her beautiful, new, slick mane, Kathy then cruised over to the MALONEY Vision Institute in L.A. for a consultation, where doctor ROBERT MALONEY corrected her eyesight using the latest in laser technology, called "Wavefront."
Next up? The plastic surgery offices of DR. PAUL NASSIF, where Kathy's sensitive skin was treated to special treatments like dermaplaning, dermabrasion and a vitamin cocktail just for her face.
"Now, I'm going to get Botox, which is shots of botulism in my face. ... Come on, it'll be fun!" the high-energy Kathy beckoned. And with an already glowing complexion, Kathy then visited the good doc himself, who gave her a few Botox shots around the eyes and on her forehead!
Finally, it was down to Kathy's smile. She visited the Beverly Hills office of cosmetic dentist, DR. KOUROSH MADDAHI, who decided to give her 20 porcelain veneers to achieve that perfect smile!
