Linda Tripp is an American civil servant who gained prominence in 1998 when she was involved in whistleblowing the affair between President Bill Clinton and his White House intern Monica Lewinsky. During her investigation of the affair, Tripp secretly recorded the phone conversations of both women and submitted them to the media.
Her act of revealing the intimate relationship between the president and his intern caused her to become the subject of ridicule. She was called a “sub-Hollywood beauty” by critics. Even today, these comments are still painful.
She went through a lot of ridicule and she was also harassed by the media for her looks. She sported an unkempt appearance and this was the reason why she wanted to change her look for the upcoming wire-tap trial in Maryland.
To get rid of her unkempt appearance, Tripp underwent several cosmetic procedures. These include a nose job, chin tuck, neck reduction, facial peel, and liposuction.
In addition to these procedures, Tripp also underwent a rigorous diet and exercise program. This resulted in a weight loss of 40 pounds.
The plastic surgery procedures that she underwent helped her to transform her appearance from frumpy to beautiful. In her admission to the National Enquirer, she stated that she underwent a full top-to-bottom makeover using various plastic surgery procedures including nose job, chin tuck, liposuction, and facial peel.
Linda had her face lift in 2008 but she was not happy with the results as she found that her chin implant did not fit her long oval face. She also complained about her face becoming a bit swollen and her cheeks looked flat.
Despite her complaints about the plastic surgery, she did not stop her efforts to change her appearance from a sexy duckling into a stunning beauty. She was determined to change her physical appearance, and a number of cosmetic procedures were the best option for her.
Her insecurities about her appearance led her to undergo a number of cosmetic procedures which included a nose job, chin tuck, and neck reduction. She also embarked on a rigorous diet and exercise program which helped her to lose 40 pounds.
She was able to change her appearance and she did not regret the decision. However, she did not forget her past because she was afraid that her children would be affected by her actions.
One of the episodes in the FX series “American Crime Story: Impeachment” makes a reference to Linda Tripp’s insecurities about her looks, which led to her undergoing a number of plastic surgeries. The episode features a scene where Linda watches a Saturday Night Live parody about her plastic surgery.
The episode also shows Linda talking about how she was bullied as a teenager and how kids called her ‘Gus’ after NBA star Gus Johnson. It also shows her watching a movie about her life.
