The tree didn’t fall far from the apple. Like daughter, like mother. Obviously these are backwards, but they kind of make sense for Janet and Jane Cunliffe. Janet, the mother (and the one on the left), wanted so much to look like her daughter, that she spent about 15,000 bucks to do so.
The best thing to do with this story is to give you the quotes from the story, which appeared in one of the UK’s prestigious beacons of journalism, The Daily Mail.
‘It might sound barmy that I had cosmetic surgery to look like my daughter, but she’s gorgeous. Who wouldn’t want to look like her?
‘The way I see it is that she got her looks from me in the first place – mine have just faded with age.
‘Seeing how attractive Jane is made me want to get my looks back. Now instead of mum and daughter we look more like twins. I had good genes and good skin, but I needed a helping hand to make me feel better about myself.’
Barmy indeed, Janet. That’s a pretty expensive helping hand, wouldn’t you say? Here’s something else that sort of got my attention. The way she talks, you’d think she just got new boobies and a face lift or something. Well, I know you’ve been dying to see what her “before” picture looks like. FEAST YOUR EYES ON THIS!
Janet’s first foray into plastic surgery was her boobs. Apparently her husband was not too impressed, and with words worthy of a Pulitzer, The Daily Mail states:
Alas, the new breasts weren’t enough to save her marriage.
So Janet and her husband divorce. Janet moves to Spain with a lover. Janet and her lover call it quits, so she has nowhere to go. She moves in with her daughter, Jane. She began to party with Jane and Jane’s friends. The saggy saga continues.
‘Jane and her friends are so glamourous and gorgeous that I stood out like a sore thumb. I felt like an old bag,’ she says. ‘Jane told me not to be so self-critical, but I knew it was true.’
Jane didn’t say it was false…
‘I envied Jane’s crinkle-free eyes, full lips and luscious, long blonde hair,’ says Janet. ‘I was desperate to look more like my daughter, but knew no wrinkle creams could ever wind back the clock that far.’
Janet just had to do something!
‘I had some savings and knew if I wanted to look more like Jane then I’d have to get my eyes done first, and my nose.’
So now, when Janet and Jane go out, people think they look like sisters… or twins. But I’d say those who call them twins have been drinking too much. Bleached hair and big boobs does not necessarily mean that they are twins.
Another cute pic of the girls (notice that Jane is wearing the same outfit that Janet is wearing in the picture above!):
And I’m speechless.
Apparently Jane doesn’t care and thinks her mom looks better than Madonna, but I’m not so sure. I mean, how would you feel? Sure, people get plastic surgery– that doesn’t bother me. If that’s what they need to do to feel better, then alright. But I think it’s a little bizarre that a mother would get plastic surgery to look like her daughter. It just seems…odd. Am I wrong here?
