Marilyn Monroe had plastic surgery

 

Wow. Marilyn Monroe wasn’t born that way. Medical records and X-rays of the Hollywood legend set to be sold at auction in Beverly Hills next month show evidence of plastic surgery. The actress likely had a cartilage chin implant, as well as rhinoplasty (aka a nose job) on the tip. The memorabilia came from her plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Gurdin, reports The New York Daily News. Monroe, 36, was found dead at her home on Aug. 5, 1962, of acute barbiturate poisoning.

Feud continues

Miley Cyrus says she’s not sure she’s OK yet with Sinead O’Connor. When asked in an AP interview if she and the performer would kiss and make up, Cyrus replied with: “I don’t know. Are we supposed to kiss?” The drama started when the Irish chanteuse warned the pop star to avoid being exploited by the music industry. The first open letter came after Cyrus said her naked Wrecking Ball video was inspired by O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U. Cyrus responded on Twitter by mentioning O’Connor’s struggles with bipolar disorder and compared her to Amanda Bynes. O’Connor published a fourth open letter to Cyrus, asking for an apology that she is yet to get.

Special friends

Kenny Rogers has finally set the record straight: his relationship with fellow country legend Dolly Parton has always been platonic. “Everybody always thought we were having an affair,” Rogers told HuffPost Live. “We didn’t. We just teased each other and flirted with each other for 30 years.” The five-time-wed singer added the Islands in the Stream duo are still close.

Red hot

Prince Harry may be the next to go. Reports out of the UK suggest he and Cressida Bonas could be getting engaged. Bonas bonus: The blonde beauty has lineage, unlike commoner Kate Middleton. Her mum is Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, daughter of the late Edward Curzon, an earl. Harry and his gal were reportedly introduced by Cressie’s best pal, Princess Eugenie.
