Julia Louis-Dreyfus is back in Veep

The beautiful and hilarious Julia Louis-Dreyfus is back on TV with Veep on HBO, where she plays the Vice-President of all things.

One could say with some assurance that her latest creation, the quick-witted, power-hungry, domineering second banana she plays in HBO’s Veep (premiering Sunday, 10 ET/PT) would not be quite so accommodating or easygoing.

Her Selina Meyer, the vice president whose political affiliation is never divulged, is a desperately ambitious woman, a former senator who ran for president but settled for second best. And now, her days consist of signing condolence cards and pushing a green jobs agenda. She’s neither Sarah Palin nor Hillary Clinton but an amalgamation of numerous morally and politically expedient and opportunistic elected officials who simply struggle to stay relevant and remain close to the Oval Office.

I’ve always been a big fan, and Julia is one of the few hot actresses who is funny as hell. We’ll always remember her as Elaine on Seinfeld but she’s such a talented actress that she can overcome the type-casting very easily.

She’s also managed to remain gorgeous over all these years with her all-natural look. She either has great genes or a great plastic surgeon that is able to make the subtle changes that hide aging without distorting how a woman looks. Fortunately for her she never had the Barbie sex symbol look so she didn’t have to resort to big fake boobs. Not that there’s anything wrong with women in their 40s or of all adult ages for that matter looking to augment their chest by looking for quality breast implant information. A great chest can make many women look better!

Some women and actresses know how to do it well, and Julia is definitely one of them. We’ll see how the series turns out, but she definitely has the talent . . . and the looks to pull it off.

Great Britain wants to impose tax on plastic surgery

I guess the cost of being a celebrity or glamour model is going up in Great Britain.

In a strange story, we’ve heard of proposals for a “boob tax” as the government scrambles to generate more tax revenues. It basically involves a new tax on plastic surgery, including stuff like breast augmentation, facelifts, tummy tucks and liposuction.

A Value Added tax of around 20% would be imposed on these procedures. I guess they think that celebrities and others who want this can afford it. Overall it should raise up to £500 million if enacted. Until now, only minor procedures like Botox would be taxed.

Naturally, this is big news for celebrities, particularly young starlets looking to garner some attention. Not everyone has a face like Natalie Portman, or her acting ability. Some need to make it purely on sex appeal. Basically, this won’t just affect the thirty-something actress who has made it and wants to maintain or even enhance her looks.

Places like the Nu Cosmetic Clinic have a ton of business from regular people and celebrities, so it will be very interesting to see how this development is received by the public. Will they think it’s fair? Plastic surgery has become much more popular, so this will affect a wide group of people.

Niraj Manglam, the owner of The Cosmetic Clinic, explains:

This Knee jerk reaction by Treasury will prove disastrous for the industry as a whole and will ultimately affect working class women.

If at all this proposal has to be implemented this should be done in a phased manner over 5-10 years so that industry can make reasonable adjustment without affecting top line.

This isn’t an issue that just applies to women. For men, hair loss is the biggest issue, though they are also starting to get other procedures as well.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.
