Botox Mom Kerry Campbell’s story keeps getting sketchier. Just to catch you up on the details so far: She told the Sun back in March that she injects her eight-year-old daughter with Botox so that she’ll become a star. Last week she appeared on Good Morning, America and allowed her daughter to be interviewed; the girl admitted that, yes, the injections hurt. Then a San Francisco paper reported that the woman’s name might not even be Kerry Campbell, nor does she live in the Bay Area. But supposedly officials had taken her daughter, Britney, away from her.
Now she’s popped back up in the Sun again, apologizing profusely and “wailing.” She told the Sun, “I am going to seek therapy for my obsession with looks so I will no longer push my insecurities about appearance on to her.” She explained that she never wanted to hurt Britney and thought she was helping her.
And the source of the needles? A pharmacist and a diabetic friend. Let’s hope they were at least fresh and unused. Just an aside: If a friend asked you to borrow some of your insulin needles, would you really share them? Anyway.
Whether this story is true or not, we sincerely hope that both mom and daughter get a lot of help from mental health professionals.
