The drama is set to air on 2011.

Before that big plunge into primetime American television, a Filipino teenage singing sensation has decided to undergo the latest, state-of-the-art cosmetic surgical procedure to prepare that look set to strike fear in Rachel Berry’s eyes.
Right now Charice Pempengco still looks all so bubbly and effervescent. But, with a character set to make life miserable for the leading female character in “Glee,” it is but natural that such changes would happen, particularly with that round, beaming face.
Cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo dedicated her Saturday schedule for a skin-tightening Botox procedure on the youngster to achieve a narrower, firmer face that would make her look apt for the breakthrough role in her fresh yet phenomenal career.
Charice herself said that such procedure was important since she will be appearing in a hugely popular, critically acclaimed and widely followed show: “Lahat po ng mga tao inaasahan nila, ‘Ano kaya ‘yong itsura ni Charice? Karapat-dapat ba siyang itapat kay Rachel Berry?’ So, siyempre sobrang laki ng pressure,” she tells ABS-CBN.
Belo herself injected Botox on her face in the jaw area right after a painless thermage procedure at her Tomas Morato clinic. This was necessary to take inches off her growing, naturally round face, Belo explained, to prepare her for ‘Glee’s’ second season, which starts filming by end of this month.
After a successful audition last month, Charice landed the plum role about a Filipino exchange student who’s attending McKinley High School and joining the school’s New Directions glee club. In the story, Charice’s character will rival Rachel, played by Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Lea Michele.
Certainly, it will be the role and the face that will have the whole world watching. As such, the slight facial transformation was necessary, Belo stressed. But the procedure she said was merely to check her widening face muscles, which will become more emphasized or worse bloated on high-definition cameras. But no facial enhancement was needed, she added.
“So what we did, we did thermage, pampaliit ng mukha ‘yon… ‘yong muscle [sa jaw area] na nagbu-bulge, puwedeng i-Botox para maging normal ulit. And then she will not chew gums anymore para maganda na siya sa ‘Glee,” Belo added in her ABS-CBN interview.
But are those procedures really that necessary, especially for an 18-year-old whose face has already been equated to that exceptional singer who wowed audiences around the world with her powerful voice?
After all, “Glee” is about sensational musical performances not Botox-stuffed celebrities.
