Bob Costas suffered an eye infection during the Sochi Olympics, but The New York Post‘s Page Six claims to have an exclusive scoop on the reason why: “botched Botox.” That’s right, Page Six claims a source told them that “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.”
And while that seems a bit far-out there, NBC actually gave a statement to Page Six denying that Costas’ eye infection had anything to do with smoothing out face wrinkles.
NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection from a Botox procedure.
A spokesperson from NBC Sports insisted to us, “This has zero truth to this. Zero.”
Now, in theory, it is possible for someone to get pink-eye from an “unclean” Botox injection. It’s also possible that the Russian water was worse than we thought.
