Sandra Vergara Of 'Good Work' Talks Plastic Surgery, Meeting RuPaul And Dishes On Which Celeb Has Had The Best Work Done
"Good Work" has arrived! The new E! reality show about plastic surgery - starring RuPaul, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow and beauty expert and actress (and Sofia's sister) Sandra Vergara - premiered yesterday to a slew of headlines as "Real Housewife" Brandi Glanville and Tiffany "New York" Pollard opened up about what they've had done, Dr. Dubrow gave himself Botox on air and RuPaul promised to get a facelift.
We called up Sandra before the premiere to talk about her work on the show.
What can viewers expect to see on "Good Work"?
You'll see a lot of celebrity guests talking about plastic surgery, and we're going to talk about all the current trends and give you our opinions on what works and what doesn't according to our own experiences. Hopefully you'll have a laugh because we're very real. It's like being with your girlfriends or at a cocktail party, but with a surgeon in your group.
How did you get involved with "Good Work"?
I had a couple meetings with E! to talk about my experience as a celebrity makeup artist and actress. They wanted someone who was a personality, mixed with the expertise, so it was the perfect combination for the threesome that is me, RuPaul and Terry.
Had you met RuPaul or Terry before?
I had not, no, but when I met them it was instantly amazing. We have great chemistry and we all three give such different perspectives and information to the audience. I feel like it will be very informative and very fun. It's also honestly not mean. We're going to be dishing, not dissing on plastic surgery and work.
As a beauty expert, would you ever encourage people to get plastic surgery?
Absolutely. As an actress, I always thought that in 20 years, I'm probably going to need Botox and whatever it takes! I encourage it as long as it's making you feel good. If it's going to bring out the best in you, and give you confidence, then absolutely. I don't think it's shameful. I'm with my co-host, I think plastic surgery is coming out of the closet. We have celebrity guests admitting what they've done, and I feel like it's fair and very real to the audience. We're giving them information where they're learning, this is attainable, you can be the best you!
When a celebrity suddenly looks very different and then puts out a statement saying it's just makeup, do you think it is usually just makeup, or is that an attempt to cover it up?
I think a lot of time it is makeup, makeup can do wonders, but I also think that sometimes it's that they don't want to admit it. I respect that. We're there to share our information with the world, what we're there and what we're good at and what you should do and what you shouldn't do. We're not focusing on who's lying or who's not. We're not going to be targeting people. It's more about us sharing our magic through everyone else and showing we're not afraid to say it. We're not ashamed, and no one should be. It's all about becoming the best you.
Which celebrities would you say have had "good work"?
I think Jane Fonda has had the best work ever. I think she looks amazing for a 77-year-old woman. She looks like a bombshell. I feel like she went on the "less is more" approach to plastic surgery and made it as natural as possible. She still looks just like her, she doesn't look like anybody else. She just looks really, really good.
Who do you think has had "bad work"?
I wouldn't say "bad work" because I don't know what their motives are. Maybe they wanted to look like that! That's the whole point: plastic surgery and anything that requires change, anything that's done to enhance you for you, amen to that!
