Celebrity Fembots

What do Shawn Southwick, Heidi Montag, and Kate Hudson have in common? They’re fembots—walking, talking Barbie dolls that are dominating tabloid headlines this spring. Rebecca Dana on the newest category of celebrity.

Kate Hudson

Everyone's favorite hippie chick may be the latest soldier in the Fembot army: Kate Hudson may recently have had breast implants, Us Weekly reports. The magazine caught the actress in a pushup bra—which, according to a source, is proof that she had a "small breast augmentation."

Shawn Southwick

Larry King's seventh wife is, at 50, 26 years his junior—but with a toned physique and blond bob, she looks about 26.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian may be known now for her reality turn on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but it's her curves that have brought her real fame. A year ago, she posed for an un-retouched cover of Life & Style magazine with the headline: "I Have Cellulite, So What!" But since then, the pounds have melted off (Kardashian has recently made an exercise video entitled Fit in Your Jeans by Friday and become a spokeswoman for QuickTrim Burn & Cleanse.) In November 2009, any excess weight was gone—and Kim was tanned and toned. "I've finally reached my goal!" she tweeted with a picture of her new bikini body.

Christina Aguilera

After she cleaned up her Dirrty image and had a baby boy with husband Jordan Bratman, it appeared Christina Aguilera would retreat into housewife mode. But her slinky numbers on the red carpet are far from muumuus, and the pop star has gone full-on fembot with a short blond crop and gravity-defying dresses lately. Luckily for her, she feels sexier than ever. Luckily for everyone else, she got rid of the dreads.

Heidi Montag

Heidi Montag used to be an athletic girl with dirty blond hair, a wide smile, and movable eyebrows. Now, apparently, she can't jog, give hugs, or express emotions on her face, after undergoing 10 plastic surgeries in one day. Montag may have posed for Playboy without going nude, but, there may be more to come: It's not even summer yet and she has already flaunted her new body, at a pool party she hosted at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Kendra Wilkinson

Former Playmate Kendra Wilkinson had breast implants when she was 18—but she says that's simply not enough. Wilkinson, who had a baby with husband Hank Baskett in December, told the British magazine Closer: "When I'm 30, I'll get everything done. I think Heidi Montag looks way better after her work!"

Loredana Jolie Ferriolo

Tiger Woods' 13th mistress, a 26-year-old model named Loredana Jolie Ferriolo, seems to be cut from the same cloth as her 12 predecessors. According to Hollywood madam Michelle Braun, Jolie is "a stunning girl." She has posed for Playboy and even lived in the Playboy mansion, of which she has said: "The girls are amazing; everyone's walking around with bikinis on. There's like all these hot chicks, but a lot of parties, and a lot of celebrities. It was fun. It was a great experience at 18 years old."

Kelly Bensimon

Lordy, lordy, look who's 40! It's no secret that Real Housewives of New York star and former model Kelly Bensimon cares about her fitness: The mother of two was shown jogging through the streets of New York on the show and graced the March cover of Playboy magazine. She may be chiseled and toned in real life, but she told E! News of her Playboy shoot: "The roundness of the hips, the buttocks, the hair, the teeth—those are the things that I think are the most evocative and provocative parts of the body. So I don't really think it's necessary to show that."

Yoanna House

The Yoanna House of America's Next Top Model fame has virtually disappeared in the six years since she won the 2004 season. House, then a thin, pale model with a short, sharp coiffure, appears to have completely modified her eyes, lips, skin tone, and breasts. The model has only confirmed her breast augmentation, citing a newborn baby, lack of sleep, and aggressive bronzer usage as reasons for her new face.

Katie Price

Katie Price (aka "Jordan") rivals Victoria Beckham for Britain's ambassador of plastic surgery. The sometime author, sometime model, and constant tabloid target has gone through a maze of breast augmentations and reductions that have morphed her chest from glamour model petite to Playmate busty and back again. The reality TV star revealed that she had to delay plans to have another child until she could have her breasts repaired with yet another procedure. Price also had her teeth filed down—to the point of constant pain. Was it all worth it? In 2008, she told women to "just stay natural because I've been through all this and look at the state of me." We'll take her word for it.

Tila Tequila

Tila "Tequila" Nguyen has made a career out of transformations—from a MySpace model and would-be musician to a reality TV fixture and celeb news feature. Accordingly, it came as no surprise when Nguyen, a naturally petite and formerly flat-chested celebrity, was suddenly sporting gigantic breasts.
