You may not have heard of Charice Pempengco, but if you're a Glee fan, then you soon will. The 18-year-old Filipina singer is the latest addition to the second season's cast, and she comes highly recommended by the likes of Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey, who dubbed her the "most talented girl in the world." But her fans may notice that she looks a bit different when she debuts on the show. Charice recently underwent Botox injections and Thermage, an anti-aging procedure. Vicki Belo, the cosmetic dermatologist who treated the girl, explained that the procedures were done to make Charice "look fresher on camera" and that she aimed to narrow Charice's "naturally round face." Her rep admits that Charice had Botox, which was medically necessary to treat her TMJ symptoms, but he doesn't address the claims of trying to keep her age - and ethnicity - at bay. Maybe she did it to avoid the scathing remarks of one Sue Sylvester?
