Candice Bergen Says No More Plastic Surgery Even If “I’m Clearly in Need” of Some Work.

None of this ‘eat to live’ stuff for me.” She continued, “At a recent dinner party I shared bread and olive oil, followed by chocolate ice cream with my husband. I thought if I am going to write another memoir, I think the only antidote to the narcissism of it is that you are as honest as you are capable of being. I don’t know what happened.’ He has as much emotion as the customer-service representative who tells you your bags missed the flight.” Giuliana proved she was willing to forgive when she gave the relationship a second chance.
