Melissa Gilbert has removed her implants, she has blogged about her decision, she says
“I Am Concerned For My Health”
. Gilbert was first recognized when she starred in Little House on the Prairie as Laura Ingalls Wilder and she reveals that she removed her breast implants in January, 2015. The former Dancing with the Stars contestant will now look different when you see her, the fifty year old had very personal blog, titled “A Tale of Two Titties,” on December 31, 2014 about the decision she made to remove her breast implants.
“The bottom line…or top line.. is that; A. I am concerned for my health and 2. I don’t like the way they look or feel. Frankly, I’d like to be able to take a Zumba class without the fear that I’ll end up with two black eyes,” she wrote.
As she explained to her fans why in the first place she got two breast implants, she stated that it was because of motherhood which first sparked the push.
“And then my husband at the time, referred to my boobs as…and I quote….’Socks full of marbles with knots at the top,’” she wrote of her insecurities being fueled by her ex husband Bruce Boxleitner after giving birth to her first son Dakota in 1989.
Soon after she got a boob job, noting,
“The surgery went perfectly. I was sore for a while after but nothing too awful and my boobs looked really natural. Most importantly,…and most pathetically really…my self-esteem went back up.”
She has also said that while she was on the reality show she found that she was looking her worst.
“I had spent most of my life pressured to look a certain way and I believed the hype,” she wrote. “The height of this obsession with my outward appearance culminated with my appearance on the dancing show. It was all about spray tan and glitter and glamor and what other people think and being skinny, way too skinny!! Yuck!!”
