Wow. I know that new reality shows often push the limits of bad taste, but E!’s new offering is so execrable that I’m having a hard time believing that it’s real. The cable channel is about to announce “Bridalplasty,” a competition show in which affianced women compete for the right to get plastic surgery makeovers that get revealed to the groom and their families AT THE WEDDING.
Each week, a group of women go head-to-head in such challenges as writing wedding vows and planning honeymoons. The winner receives the chance to choose a plastic surgery procedure from her “wish list.” She’s given the procedure immediately, and results are shown at the start of the following week’s episode…
The last bride standing will receive a “dream wedding,” where she will reveal her new appearance to friends, family and the groom. “Viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery,” E! said.

Whoa, cool! If you squint your eyes while reading those paragraphs, you can actually glimpse our dystopian future.
Also coming to E! — “Bridleplasty” starring Sarah Jessica Parker. That’s a horse joke, son.
