Looks like Melanie's black eye has healed!
Decked out in an eye-catching leopard print coat, Melanie and hubby Antonio Banderas (who knew his beard was so gray!) enjoyed the Aspen snow yesterday with their daughter Stella.
Beware the reflection off the snow, Mel! We don't want another cancer scare!
And it looks like her eye is healing, so yay for Mel! The Working Girl star is in Aspen for the holidays like everyone else. But where's Antonio?
X17online was the first to bring you the news that Melanie Griffith was sporting a shiner, and now her rep is speaking out about what caused the black & blue bruise underneath her right eye.
A rep for the star says the black eye was caused by surgery to remove early stages of skin cancer from her face. Luckily (so says her spokesperson), it was done early enough to prevent further complications.
I'm sorry, but would the procedure, which would remove a portion of the skin, really blacken that whole area around her eye?
Or could it be just an embarrassing case of botox gone bad?
So much going on with Melanie Griffith these days...
First she leaves rehab and THEN gets a black eye. WTF! She was so open about showing off her eye before, and now she's covering it back up. Why?
And now we spotted her leaving Neil George holding someone's hand. Sure, it looks like he was just ushering her out, but still. Where's Antonio???
We first showed you Melanie Griffith's black eye yesterday, but now here it is in full view! Poor thing. That looks like it hurt!
We sincerely hope there's no suspicious story behind it, and that it was just an accident...
Photogs snapped Melanie Griffith nervously smoking in her car yesterday after she was spotted trying to buy concealer to cover up a black eye.
A source tells X17online Xclusively that Melanie ran into the Larchmont Beauty Supply store yesterday afternoon with a big shiner.
"Melanie ran into the store looking like she was wasted on something," says our source. "She was so out of it, she mistook me for a salesman and asked me where the concealer was! As I showed her the makeup section, she rambled on about being a klutz. She bought the concealer I suggested then ran back out to cover up her shiner. As big as it was, I think she needed a lot of it!"
Later, photogs snapped Melanie driving around in the rain, talking on the phone and smoking, before she threw her butt out the window.
If she really is that clumsy, we hope she'll be more careful next time!
The actress slash mom still looks pretty damn good for 52! (That is, when she's not smoking up a storm.) Who cares if she's had plastic surgery or not, right?
Yesterday we caught Melanie Griffith and daughter Stella shopping at American Apparel, and it looks like the two are closer than ever after Mel's recent stint in rehab. And that's not all the shopping these two have done since mom came home!
A source who recently ran into the mom/daughter duo at Urban Outfitters in Hollywood tells X17online exclusively, "I saw Melanie, Stella and some of her girlfriends shopping at the Melrose store the other day, and Mel generously spent hundreds of dollars on the girls. She was such a sweetheart, and she's definitely back on track ... she clearly enjoyed spoiling her daughter and her friends!"
Aww, Mel! We want to go shopping with you too!
