When We First Fell in Love:

Career Highs: Her 1970 TV special “Raquel!”, Spokesmodel for MAC cosmetics at the age of 67.

Career Lows: A bunch of Lifetime TV movies; playing a transvestite in Myra Breckinridge, often referred to as one of the worst movies of all time.

“Work”: Welch isn’t afraid of the knife—she had rhinoplasty before she arrived in Hollywood.  She’s probably had a facelift or two, but her plastic surgeon deserves a medal for his work.
