Roy’s New Nose
Roy, a crew member on The Doctors, has wanted to fix his nose for years.
“I had an addiction to alcohol and drugs,” Roy says. “I lost the tip of my nose acting really stupid in a drunken rage and my own dog attacked me. This is when I knew I had a problem.
“I’m [celebrating] 11 years of sobriety this year,” Roy continues. “I’ve worked on myself on the inside but [my nose] is the one glowing factor. I am embarrassed by it.”
