Trista (Rehn) Sutter, the original Bachelorette, revealed she recently went under the knife, hoping to “feel pretty” again. Trista opted to have a blepharoplasty, which lifts the eyelids and removes under-eye bags, and a breast augmentation and lift.
“After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated and I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I’ve ever taken,” Trista says.

Trista continues, “I realized that the surgery was something I had to do for myself, just for my own self-confidence and to feel good again about being in bathing suits and being intimate with my husband.”
That husband would be the super hunky Ryan Sutter, of course. Trista says Ryan supported her decision. “He wanted me to be happy, so he said, ‘Whatever you need to do to make yourself happy, go for it,’ ” she shares.
Trista‘s ultimate goal? “I wanted to feel pretty again,” she says. “And I do!”

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm, the latest Bachelorette couple, recently traveled to Ghana to build wells. Doesn’t she look cute? If we were building wells, that is exactly what we would wear. <rolling eyes>
Seriously, did princess Emily really get dirty in Ghana? Jef explains, “The wells were already built by People Water. We were celebrating with the families, and altogether visiting nine wells on the outskirts of Ghana.”
Still, not doing the actual physical labor doesn’t make their trip any less praiseworthy. According to Jef, seeing the crisis first hand had a big impact on Emily. “It was almost a spiritual experience to see these people’s need for clean water. It hit Emily hard,” says Jef. “She would be crying, seeing how people lived. It was a heavy thing for her, but it was awesome. They had no idea who we were. None of these villages have electricity and nobody recognized us. It was a really welcoming celebration in a good and different kind of way.”
Jef‘s charitable work is admirable. Yet, on the Bachelorette, Emily said she was drawn to Jef because he is a “bad boy.” Jef has many layers to him, including his funky clothes, old soul, sense of humor, and skateboarding abilities. But, he hardly seems like a bad boy. Jef says, “I think I was kind of a bad boy in her eyes. I was kind of standoffish. I didn’t really care about the TV show. I was just myself. When people first meet me, they don’t think I started a company like this. I’m kind of rough around the edges. Emily actually thought I was talking crap, or that I would end it, or go home early!”
Jef continues, “A lot of people had preconceived notions about me — the way I look or dress or act, and I do have a young spirit about me. Emily got to see a deeper side beyond the way I dress or talk. She got to meet my family and see how I was raised and talk about hopes and dreams and viewpoints and vision in life.”
Does Emily share those same visions?
“We’re both grounded,” says Jef. “In our personal lives, we see eye-to-eye on the way we want to treat everybody, how we want to be great parents. We want a grounded marriage. We see eye-to-eye on foundational things like that, and it’s really important.”
What’s next for Jef?
“We [People Water] are going to Haiti in September, and Emily wants to come and bring Ricki and teach her how to get involved and make her aware of everything going on in the world,” says Jef. Then, possibly Jef’s biggest challenge yet, he’s going to be the head coach of Ricki’s soccer team, The Green Beans. How cute!
Emily and Jef‘s life now – from Ghana to Green Beans – is much more interesting than that crap fest called the Bachelorette. Maybe a spin-off isn’t such a bad idea.
