Brooke has admitted to getting breast enhancements and Botox. "If I wasnt on TV, I probably wouldnt. Fillers at a minimal level are okay, but it scares me because I dont want to have that bloated look. In our industry, people do too much too soon or just too much. Theres nothing worse than that frozen. I'm 40 but I want to look 24." (prevention.com)
She added, "I was hosting the Miss America pageant, and I was having a great time. Then it hit me: I could be any of these girls mothers! Thats when I realized Im freaking 40. It was weird. She prefaced this with: Forty is better than 30. I have a better understanding of who I am, what makes me tick, whats okay and not okay. Ive had such a great experience professionally in the last 3 or 4 years that it really opened my eyes to not procrastinating."
