What's wrong with your face? Unfortunately that's a question I've been getting a lot lately. And while we could just start at the aging neck and work our way up J the main issue currently seems to be my lips.

Some of your emails have been extremely kind...asking questions and voicing concern.

Others, not so much. For the most part I "just don't go there" often on personal issues. Sometimes I can't resist a mention of my sweet kids but I know it's not always easy for them or my husband to have their mom and wife on t-v and I respect that.

However this latest rumor seems to have taken on a life of its own. What started as snickering about "lip plumping" has accelerated into all kinds of wild speculation. Since you all have to look at me each night and I don't want my lips to distract from the real news I thought I would offer an explanation. So here's the deal for those of you who care. If you don't...feel free to skip on to something more won't hurt my feelings a bit.

A few months ago I noticed a small hard nodule under the skin of my upper lip.

I didn't think much about it. But it didn't go away and in fact there seemed to be a little cluster of them. Since I have had Melanoma in the last couple of years I had the lumps looked at. Turns out the "granulomas" were nothing to worry about. But the painful and repeated process of removing them left my lip swollen, scarred and uneven. All in high def I might add! Clearly it looked worse than I thought.

Can I have it fixed? I'm not sure. Will I have it fixed? I'm not sure about that either.

I keep having visions of Goldie Hawn in the "First Wives Club". J

So thanks for listening and as always thanks for watching.
