Raquel Welch is 70?


~~~~~~Raquel Welch, 70?????    WTF!

~~Okay, so I’m watching Oprah (again) because I love her quite abundantly and don’t know what I’ll do without her insight and insanity while walking on my treadmill. I mean, seriously, what will I fill this void with when she’s gone?   Certainly not Rosie if she takes her place, or God forbid,  Tyra- it’s all about ME and  my fat ass, Banks.

Anyhow, I’m watching the Big O and who do I see; Rachel freaking-gorgeous-unbelievable-age defying-Welch.   That’s who.

And I don’t get it.    Not one single solitary bit.

This woman is 70 years old, but it seems she’s gone all Dorian Grey. It’s appears her plastic surgeon is either a mastermind or a damn miracle worker. It appears I am envious as all hell about a 70 year old woman looking better than I do.

70???   What the HELL?

“Look at me. I’m holding together just fine, I’m not doing it with no effort, I’m doing my yoga every day, an hour-and-a-half of that” —Raquel Welch

Alll-righty then, you mean to tell me all I need to do is a bit of Shakti; a bit of Shashankasana; a bit of downward dog?   If so, I’m pulling out my mat and mind this second.

The frustrating thing is- 99% of women   Do. Not. look like this at 70.

I mean, shit, shit, and double shit.    Are you Seeeerious?   Reallly?

And then a few years ago Oprah’s guests were Diane Carroll, Cheryl Tiegs, and some other mature women… Suddenly Oprah gushes and points to Diane Carroll who, by the way, happens to look striking, but one can most positively observe that she’s had a bit of tucking, plumping, cutting, and pulling done. Any Woo, Oprah points to Diane and squeals,

“THIS IS WHAT 70 LOOKS LIKE!”

I jumped up from my couch and screamed  (like some crazy lunatic) cause you know I am….

“NO!   No!    Hell No!”

Sure, perhaps this is what 70 looks like with a bit of Botox, babe. (Not that anything is wrong with that) Perhaps this is what 70 looks like when your Hollywood Nip/Tuk doctor takes your excess skin and pulls it over your face like an expensive egg-white mask. Yeah, perhaps this is what 70 represents when, yes, I’ll just say it, ONE HAS A FRIIIIICKIN FACELIFT.

I am not against plumping and lifting and cutting. Let me say it again… I am not opposed to a bit of fat from your rump pumped into your face. Nope. That’s all cool with me.

What annoys me is when somebody declares, “This is all me. I had no help. I used loads of olive oil. I do an hour of Yoga a day. I don’t use soap on my face. I have lots of sex. I don’t eat red meat.”

    SHUUUUT UUUUUUUUP.

Just say it. Tell us the truth. Stop lying. Stop behaving as if you’re all Hollywood and Hollow.

Don’t let us walk around thinking that we should look like that at 70, okay? Don’t make us feel bad about ourselves because we have a few wrinkles, crow’s feet, or Nora Ephron’s sagging neck. And please don’t say this is what we are supposed to look like if we are taking care of ourselves.

Now, will you pardon me while I go get an injection from my Ass to insert into a few of these wrinkles…?

Welch On Oprah…..2010…Do people look like that at 70 by doing YOGA….?   Tell me, please.  i’ll go take a class today.

    Age defying? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA!

    The first cut is the deepest, babe!

    I can’t stomach Rachel. If she is 70, I am still in the womb!

    I would like to see her portrait up there in her attic – would scare the rats to death.

    did I mention I am not fond of her.

    But I love you. xxx

    Kim,

    You nailed it Sista!!!! I always said I never want to look 20 at 50 I just DON’T want to look 80 at 60!!! It’s so funny because so many people lie about their age, me included… BUT, I have a little trick with mine, I tell them I am 62, then they say, “DAMN girl you look GREAT” and I nod my head and smile… If I told them I was younger they would say, “DAMN girl what happened to you?” HA HA HA HA!!! Remember, beauty is a light switch away!!!

    Love love love!!!!

    Kel

    She looks good but she’s wearing a wig, her teeth are capped, and yes….she’s had alot of “work” done. We can’t compare ourselves to someone who has good genes to start with and unlimited funds to fix any little thing she doesn’t like. I heard someone say it’s not about looking young for your age, it’s about looking really good for your age.
    Well,
    I’m off to the doctor to get some help for my big M. The change is coming!!!!

    She is still lovely! I think it’s sad though that what she said in teh interview… “For a woman. getting old is the last dirty word.” Now I am not so naive to admit I am not thrilled with some of the physical aging things that are going on with my own body… But I think it’s sad many people think the worst thing you can be called is OLD! I think there is a lot of beauty in older people.

    She looks better than she did in some of those pictures of her in her 20s! Weird! Looks like a new nose kinda, doesn’t it? Pumped cheeks? If she said she was 50 I’d believe her. I mean, she has NO WRINKLES, no sagging — how can that be? Jeannie T. is exactly right — she has good genes to start with; she was always so beautiful (my dad is/was crazy about her so she was a household name, the golden ring to strive for of pretty…) And she probably does have a wig, great teeth. But her mind and her attitude are awfully sharp and she is really hip. My mom is 76 and very youthful, hip, but boy, she can carry on a conversation and doesn’t have to snap her fingers or try to think of a word or have a moment … I bet she eats clean, doesn’t drink, as well as that damn yoga! I’ll tell you, I would love to look/act like her at 52, much less 70 🙂 but most important, I’d hope I keep FEELIN’ good!

      Yoga classes will be packed now, Ginger!

      It’s all about attitude…but good genes/ jeans help, too. The high
      cheek bones are holding the wrinkles up … and of course, a bit of Botox.

      xxx Love love love.

    One more thing – what’s up with Oprah’s face here? She has these white lines on either side of her nose …

    Pumping, lifting & cutting is ok with me ————- if you can look like Raquel. You have to have something
    to start with & boy does she have it. I have seen many so called movie stars with cutting tucking swollen
    lips (ugh) but nobody like her.

    I saw her speak at Women of Faith last fall in the cities. 🙂 She has a wonderful testimony! (I thought she said she was like in her late 40’s/early 50’s……??) She is so inspirational to us, as women!! She is now traveling with the Women of Faith team and speaking all over the country! I know she has a daughter named Haven…

      ~~~I’d love to go see her if she spoke in the area…
      her daughter is stunning, as well….
      I’ve seen her
      interviewed.

      I didn’t know she was a Christian.

    On GMA she looks about 40 to 45. She does not even look 50. Her voice gives her away that you might say 50 but if she is not talking she looks in the 40’s. I mean go to the grocery store and look at a 70 year old woman Raquel could pass for 30’s. People get your glasses fixed.

    I just saw her on fox news and I had to pull up her age on the Internet and then pause the show and rant and rave very similar to this post about how ridiculous it is that she looks like that. How is that possible?? I am just in utter shock and glad that I am not the only one who said “wtf” when I saw her !
