Priscilla Presley was perhaps naive when she underwent bad plastic surgery at the hands of a shady character who was posing as a medical doctor. She was not the only celebrity client to fall for the fake credentials of the phony physician. Daniel Serrano is currently serving an 18 month sentence for performing procedures using imported substances that were not FDA approved. He entered a guilty plea in Los Angeles Federal Court for conspiracy, smuggling and use of unapproved drugs.
The miracle injections occurred around 2003. Serrano, from Argentina, claimed that what he was injecting was better than Botox. What it turned out to be was low grade silicone. Several women, including Larry King’s wife Shawn King, and Lionel Richie’s wife Diane held injection parties in their homes. Serrano smuggled the non FDA approved drugs into the U.S.
Other noted plastic surgeons have suggested that Presley has likely had a chemical peel done to improve the appearance of her skin. In addition, Priscilla is rumored to have had Botox, a brow lift, a nose job and cheek implants.
Presley is not please to discover that she has come under renewed scrutiny now that she is in the spotlight on Season 6 of Dancing with the Stars. She and partner Louis van Amstel did well with their foxtrot during the first night of competition. Their performance put them in second place for the evening. Presley is the oldest contestant to compete on the show at age 62. She has continued to do well, much to the surprise of the judges and audience members. She is said to have already surpassed Jane Seymour in her dancing abilities. Seymour, 58, danced in last season’s competition.
Presley’s 6 year marriage to Elvis Presley produced a daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. Priscilla had a 22 year relationship with Italian screenwriter and director Marco Garibaldi before they parted ways. She is currently dating British TV executive Nigel Lythgoe.
