When Kari was young in Hollywood, her record label wanted to buy her breast implants, so she thought, “Why not?” She later got her implants changed out and then, within six months, her implants encapsulated. As a result, she got rid of them. Once she became a mother, she had a whole new perspective on body image, especially having two daughters (pictured above). She appeared on The Drs to talk about her story and revealed that she strives to be a good role model for her kids.
