A major news story at the moment in the Philippines: that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo once had breast implants. The story is old news that only came to light because her 80's-era implants were apparently leaking-and the story got even more complicated when her spokespeople denied and then confirmed the rumors, and then people began questioning whether laws guaranteeing transparency in matters of the president's health should make Arroyo's boob job (and any other plastic surgeries) public knowledge.
Now, we get how gross it must be for any woman to have her chest discussed on the nightly news. But honestly, people, we've seen this guessing game with a zillion celebrities, and we really have to ask: when someone has a boob job, an eye tuck, or any other kind of surgery, whatever the situation that sparked that decision, isn't the whole idea to, duh, change your appearance? And is it that shocking when people, you know, like, notice?Also, do you think plastic surgery can make you more successful in your career?
