    Did anyone else notice the drastic change in Linda Gray's neck from the Soapnet Reunion and the Return To Southfork Special? In the first one she had many wrinkles in her neck which is expected in your 60's. But then in the Return To Southfork Reunion Special...the wrinkles were gone. She looked younger than everybody else there, I thought. Did she do something natural or have a face lift? Does anybody know?

    Bottom line...No matter what she did, SHE LOOKS WONDERFUL!! [​IMG]

    Linda has sworn off Plastic surgery...so I say it probably taking care of your skin...and if you drink the right amount of water...it will help your skin from not drying out.

    i think she had a little nip and tuck nothing too much. but they can never operate on your neck. its almost not possible not to have wrinkles at 60. but i think it was only recent. not like victoria who has had them all along

    I think not, as far as Linda goes... Victoria is another matter....she's gone way to far with it, in my opinion...

    No surgery ever done. Linda Gray said on many interviews that she intends to grow old gracefully. She just bleaches her hair from time to time. I admire her for having such a healthy attitude to aging in Hollywood.

    I'd like to see one of these interviews. I always hear people say she said no to plastic surgery, but come on, to a celeb, no plastic surgery means very little.

    I was watching her on Melrose Place then comparing it to today, and she's definitely had something done on her face, because it's a lot tighter now. So, she's had little done, but she HAS had something done. I'll get pictures to compare, but it's no denying it when you see it side by side.

    But anywhoo, she did a good job. She didn't overdo it, she just got it when she needed it and hasn't abused it like Victoria.

    Linda will be 65 in September-- I'm assuming she's had a little, but she hasn't gone too far with it. She's used good judgment regarding when to stop.

    These days, you can get some stuff done without actually having to go under the knife- she might have done something like that- which is fine for her as long as it does not jeapordize her health. A lot of looking young is 1) hair and 2) Staying a reasonable weight- when you get older, your hair changes, it loses it's bounce and shine-

    I believe Linda when she says she is against surgery. I believe she looks the way she does through sensible eating and exercise. She's amazing. She gave an interview on the biography channel where she pointed to all her little lines and talked openly about how she felt about surgery. Just because she looks amazing in her sixties does not mean she has gone under the knife. [​IMG]

    I agree with that also. I believe if Linda Gray had plastic surgery she would have admitted it. She is beautiful and I believe she has retained her youthful beauty by a sensible life style.

    Well, you know...having fat sucked out of your neck and then tying the loose skin behind your neck under your hairline doesn't qualify as surgery. So, she's telling the truth. [​IMG]

    That was my second option! [​IMG] But yeah, watch her on Melrose Place or Models Inc and you will know that she's had plastic surgery.

    Hell, Victoria Principal says she hasn't had her face done. What do you think? [​IMG]

    I love Linda and I love plastic surgery, but there's no need to deny it.

    Yes, exactly.

    While I fully support a person's right to lie about cosmetic surgery and, yes, I believe Linda fibbed a little and I think she has every reason to as it's a personal choice, it is harder to stomach VP's assertions when she so clearly has had so much done, especially with those cheek implants (has she had them removed, or at least reduced?) that for a while were so very obvious and not-so-terribly complimentary.

    I realize VP might not want to disclose her work done, as she also sells beauty products and doesn't want to admit she looks as young as she does due to processes other than a pleasant face-gel, but when you've altered yourself so much, the denials start to get a bit silly.

    That's what I mean about Linda: she's not done too much, or had anything too drastic. Good hair is nice, and healthy eating and exercise and especially regular, large water consumption have a real effect on the aging process, but at this point, I'd be very stunned to find out that Miss Gray's really had no cosmetic procedure at all.

    But again, lying about it is fair-game.
