Botox Mom Was an Actress Paid to Pretend She Gave Her Kid Botox

The Superficial / May 19, 2011

So apparently Botox Mom was nothing but a giant scam. Not only did Kerry Campbell never inject her eight-year-old daughter with Botox, her name isn’t even Kerry Campbell and, for kicks, let’s also assume the kid’s Arnold’s. TMZ reports:

TMZ has obtained a sworn declaration written by Sheena Upton, who claims she was recently approached by the British tabloid, The Sun, and asked “to play the role of Kerry Campbell” for a story called “I Give My 8-Year-Old Daughter Botox.”
Upton now confesses The Sun paid her $200 adding, “I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview.”
After the story ran in The Sun, Upton says she was approached by “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition” and claims she was offered “a large fee” to appear on camera. She went on both shows and re-told her story.
After the interview, child welfare officials took Upton’s daughter away.
Upton now admits in her declaration, “The truth is I have never given my daughter Botox, nor allowed her to get any type of waxing, nor is she a beauty pageant contestant.”
Upton says professionals agree with her declaration, because on May 17, she took her daughter to the UCLA Medical Center and says, “After my daughter received a full medical exam, the results indicated that she has not ever received treatments including Botox or other such injections.”

Child services has already returned Kerry/Sheena/Botox Mom’s daughter presumably with some form of warning that roughly translates to, “You’re a fucking idiot.” In the meantime, I hope we’ve all learned a valuable lesson about believing everything we see on TV, and also that I was right about Heidi Montag being entirely CGI. I don’t see how this doesn’t prove it.
