A 33-year-old songwriter who has spent more than $100,000 on surgeries to look just like Justin Bieber was--and here is the real news--turned down for more procedures by a famous Newport Beach plastic surgeon. (Honestly, walking around Lido Village and seeing over-inflated ladies with Joker smiles had me convinced cutters in town turned no one down.) But while we agree with the decision of Dr. Terry Dubrow, husband of Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Heather Dubrow, our take is based on economics, not medicine. Lissen up, Toby "True Belieber" Sheldon: You can still look just like your Canadian idol for the low, low price of $5.87.
