RHONJ: Ashlee Holmes' Shocking Makeover

Teresa Giudice's cookbook catastrophe was nearly upstaged by another cast member's dramatic new look on the season four premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night.

Jacqueline Laurita's daughter Ashlee (she changed the spelling of her name from Ashley last year) Holmes was almost unrecognizable thanks to a major hair color change and enhanced facial features.

In addition to going from brunette to light blonde and sporting super tanned skin, the 20-year-old, who got a nose job in 2010, significantly plumped up her lips.

While most viewers were seeing Holmes' altered appearance for the first time Sunday night, she actually debuted her makeover on Watch What Happen Live back in May 2011 while RHONJ was taping.

"Out of curiosity, are your lips bigger?" Andy Cohen asked before Holmes covered her mouth with her hand. "Um, I got a little bit of Juvederm in them," she replied, referencing the popular injectable filler. "People would always say that when I smile, my top lip would disappear, so I tried it but I'm not a fan to be honest."

Ever the diplomat, Cohen complimented her larger pout. "You actually look a little Angelina-esque,"

Holmes moved to Los Angeles to work on her clothing line last August.  "I can't believe I'm moving tomorrow........ I have 85412554326 different feelings right now lol #lalaland here i come," she announced via Twitter at the time, later adding "been here for a total of 10minutes and i already LOVE my new home! #LA !!!!"
