Priscilla Presley's Face Was Injected With Auto Lube

Priscillapresley Consider this post to be your PSA of the day, ladies: If one of your friends hosts an "injection party" where an unlicensed doctor from Argentina offers to pump your face with an illegal, non-FDA approved "miracle injection" he smuggled into the country for the bargain price of $500 a shot, claim you left your wallet at home, offer to go get it, and then RUN AWAY AND NEVER TALK TO THOSE CRAZY BITCHES AGAIN.

(And here I used to be annoyed for getting suckered into $20 measuring spoons at a Pampered Chef party.)

So if you've been watching Dancing with the Stars, you have probably at some point looked at Priscilla Presley's face and thought: hmmm. Or maybe: huuuuuh.

Turns out Priscilla was a victim of Dr. Daniel Serrano, a phony cosmetics peddler who targeted the Hollywood social scene with anti-aging injections that he claimed were better than Botox.

It was actually low-grade industrial silicone. Basically: auto-part lubricant. Now that is hott.

According to TMZ:

Several women, including Shawn King, Larry's wife, and Diane Richie, Lionel's wife at the time, held injection parties in their homes, with Serrano needling them with the non-FDA approved drug that he had smuggled in to the U.S. Shawn King has said the injections created a lump in her lip that made it difficult to speak and drink liquids.

Other victims suffered lumps, paralysis and HOLES IN THEIR FACES after getting the shots. Oh my heavens.

Serrano, who was nicknamed Dr. Jiffy Lube, was indicted by the Feds for smuggling drugs, and the conspiracy and use of unapproved drugs. He was convicted, and last week he was released and is currently being investigated by federal immigration officials and could be deported.

Okay, so I guess once you become comfortable with the idea of injecting botulism into your face, perhaps it isn't that big of a jump to becoming comfortable with getting mystery shots in your friend's living room over cocktails and finger sandwiches. Perhaps. I don't know. My friends and I are more of the backyard barbecue types.

Priscilla claims she had no idea she was being injected with silicone (oh, and clearly, there was NO REASON TO BE SUSPICIOUS) and is currently undergoing corrective work.

Yeah, I won't even use Mary Kay products but maybe I'm just the suspicious type. From someone who often researches the wealthy--- you won't believe some of the crazy shiz they do.


I have had both BOTOX and Restalyne done, in a DOCTOR'S OFFICE...and they show you the packages when the open them so you know what you are getting.

I have always thought that it was weird that you would have these procedures done in someone's living room. Especially by a doctor who don't speak no English.

And did you also see that Lionel's ex has been indicted as well? Seems that she knew what was going on...nice friend there to have your friends injected with 10W 30.

Dude. I have a hard time looking at her. He did some crazy shizz to her face.


Hollywood has gone crazy with the cosmetic surgery and injections. They are starting to scare me.

Robyn G

I am just so happy to have an explanation for what is up with her face. It was boggling me, for reals.

Suzy Q

What a stupid-ass she was for doing this. What'd she save - $50?

I knew something was wrong - she looks EXACTLY like Joan Van Ark, whose face right now could make babies cry.


A friend of my mil thought she had MS at one point--turned out to be BAD side effects from some botox a doctor friend had "leftover." The problems went away, but that sure was a lesson for me (as if I'd let anyone inject me with that stuff anyway--in my kitchen or in the doctor's office).

If I ever get an invitation for an "injection party," I think my son will suddenly have something very important that night that I just can't skip, darn it.
