Former 'Bachelorette' Says Being Called 'Hot Dog Nose' Drove Her to Plastic Surgery
Jillian Harris, ABC's fifth “Bachelorette,” says cyberbullying drove her to get a nose job.
Harris took to her blog at JillianHarris.com to share her experience with “mean people."
"Some people are mean,” she wrote. “I've found the best way to cope with this is to just feel sorry for them. Think about it... how many emotionally wonderful people will jump onto the old world wide web and lash out at someone they have never met? Not many. So if someone says you're fat, have a hot dog nose (yes this happened, and yes I got a nose job because of it) choose the route of empathy instead of anger."

She also denied reports that she had additional work done. "OMG I didn't realize how greasy I looked in pictures until i started wearing mattifying powder!! Ladies... this can MAKE or break a photo and there is a fine balance. NO I have not had tons of work done on my face, rather I've only just now figured out how to do my makeup."
