The newest star of Real Housewives of Orange County, Dr. Jen Armstrong, was seen for the first time shooting with the other cast members.
Over the weekend, the Instagram account The Talk Of Shame posted a clip on filming by a tipster showing Jen arriving at the LeBlanc Spa Resort Los Cabos. She was spotted being escorted around the resort by Heather DuBrow and Shannon Beador.
The video is confirmation Jen is being brought on to spice up season 13. As Radar previously reported, the producers decided to clean house after last season and fired Kelly Dodd, Elizabeth Vargas, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. She will be joining fellow new cast members Noella Bergener and Nicole James.
Armstrong is quite the character with a very interesting history. She is bringing the drama even before the season premieres. As we first reported, the doctor is being sued by a former client named Judy Hecht for battery and medical negligence.
Armstrong runs her own company named Advanced Skincare Medical Center in Newport Beach. Hecht went to see the doctor in October 2019 to get fillers in her cheeks.
Hecht claims Armstrong called herself as a specialist in the area. She had the fillers injected and then came back a little bit later for another "Exilis non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment" around her eyes and cheeks. She accuses Armstrong of improperly performing the work which caused the fillers to melt inside her face.
“Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that as a result of the manner and method by which Defendants performed the Exilis treatment her previously injected fillers below the surface of her skin melted causing issues that needed correction and deformity in her face," her suit read.
She continued to go back to Armstrong who allegedly said she could fix the issues. In the suit, Hecht says her face “changed remarkably” after adding more fillers.
Her lawyer wrote, “Plaintiff's physical appearance was that of a puffy or fat face with her checks sticking out toward her head and ears and the contour of her face being dramatically uneven.
Hecht says she kept seeing Armstrong until early 2020 when another doctor finally agreed to fix her alleged issues.
The former client says the Bravo star provided unnecessary treatments, misdiagnosed her condition, and failed to properly inject the fillers which screwed up her face. She is suing for unspecified damages. Armstrong has yet to respond to the case in court.
