The Doctors TV show guest: Japanese Bagel Head body modification! La Carmina on CBS medical daytime TV show.
As you may have deduced, I was in LA… to be a guest on The Doctors! The hit CBS daytime TV show, which tackles medical and health topics, has 14 million viewers per week and airs in USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Ireland, Sweden and Finland.
I discussed bagel heads (Japan saline forehead inflation) on the show, with John Skeleton as call-in guest. Guess who also interrogated me… Roseanne Barr, presidential candidate and famed comedian!
My bagelhead episode is called “Health Dilemmas Caught on Tape” and aired Wednesday, October 24 in the daytime. Check your local listings for repeats. If you missed it, I got your back — you can watch my segment above and on YouTube.
Ready for behind-the-scenes pics? After the filming at Paramount Studios, I posed with a bagel from the green room. My deco necklace and hair flower clips are provided by Angelica Brigade.
But let’s rewind. I started the day at my beloved Orlando Hotel in West Hollywood, where I always stay. Best staff and green apples on the planet.

I passed security clearance and entered Paramount Studios Lot. The Doctors films at Stage 30, right next to Dr. Phil. The staff escorted me to my private dressing room, with my name on the door.
There was a large wardrobe selection, in case someone showed up in Bermuda shorts.
Funny story: I did my own makeup on the lighter side, since this is a daytime TV appearance. However, when I sat down for a touch-up, the makeup artist decided to dramatize everything!
The finished look. Do you prefer the makeup before or after?
Waiting, waiting, in my dressing room. That’s a Hugo poster on the wall (I love this film, saw it twice).
Finally, I was miked up and led to the front row of the studio audience.
During the second segment, Roseanne Barr and all four doctors (Travis Stork, Lisa Masterson, Jim Sears, Andrew Ordon) interviewed me and John (who called in) about Japanese bagel heads.
Is the body mod safe? Is it really a trend? Watch the clip to find out.
I got to chat with the doctors after the show, but didn’t get a chance to take photos. This pose with Dr. Travis Stork will have to do!
Do you like what I wore on The Doctors? What do you think of my TV guest appearance, and the bagel head procedure?
