Tawny Kitaen, an actress, model, and media personality, died on May 7, 2021, at the age of 59, in her Newport Beach home.
Tawny Kitaen death was confirmed by her 28-year-old daughter Wynter Finley, who informed The New York Times that the cause of death was unknown at the time.
“We are grieved and sorry to report our mother’s passing… Her children published a message on her Instagram saying, “We miss her and adore her, and we know her legacy will go on forever.”
The diva was most known for her roles in Ratt’s Back for More and Whitesnake’s Still of the Night and Here I Go Again music videos. Malibu, California Girls, Witchboard, The Surreal Life, Botched, and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew are among her cinematic and reality TV credits.
Kitaen was also known for her enticing appearance, which she attained in part through plastic surgery and breast implants during her busy years. She was, however, unlike many other celebrities, very open about her procedures in public.
Because of her insecurities, she had to go under the knife.
In 2017, during an appearance on Ereality !’s show Botched, the late actress discussed how she came up with the idea for breast implants in the 1980s. Even though she was doing well in her career, she said she had doubts about her appearance.
“It had to be something inside of me that didn’t let me feel safe enough in myself. And [I] reasoned, “Well, this [surgery] will solve the problem.””
Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif, who questioned Kitaen after her confession, said that she may have been under a lot of pressure to look her best at the height of her career. As a result, Kitaen considered boosting her breast size in order to stay a bit longer at the top.
In addition, the Hercules actress underwent facial surgery, which she discussed less openly than her breast implants.
She had her breast implants removed
Kitaen went on Botched, a show where professional plastic surgeons attempt to repair faulty plastic operations, to get her breast implants removed after her sixth surgery went tragically wrong.
“Within six months [of her implants], the implants began to slip through the mesh, and now the implants are like down to the bottom of my, um, rib cage,” she explained her implant problem.
She also expressed dissatisfaction with her breast size, claiming that they were too large.
“Oh, you want to be completely free of implants?” Dr. Dubrow inquired. She said affirmatively, asking the surgeons to remove the implants and restore her natural appearance.
The surgeons were taken aback when an actress asked them to remove all of the implants, but they quickly understood that after a while, one could become tired of it all.
They also congratulated Kitaen on her desire to be free of her problems and pledged to help her in any way they could. On September 1, 2017, the actress updated her followers on her implant removal procedure through Twitter. She stated that she was completely real, with no false body parts, and thanked her surgeons for their excellent work.
