In a new interview, the 41-year-old actress revealed she previously got plastic surgery in an effort to save her 10-year marriage to the TV chef, 51.

“[I] couldn’t get a job I wanted on camera, couldn’t get attention for my production projects, couldn’t travel the world far enough or fast enough or immerse myself in philanthropy enough to make it all go away,” Stephanie said.
“It was like watching a glacier cleave into giant chunks: massive and seemingly well beyond my control. See, the other thing that was happening was that my marriage of nearly 10 years (and 14 together) was falling apart. And nothing, nothing was helping me cope,” she continued.

“[I] could not fix it — any of it. [So I] decided to try one last thing, [which] was exactly what you are not supposed to do when it comes to plastic surgery. I decided to change my body because I couldn’t change my life,” the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star told Refinery 29.
“In five weeks I looked darn good. Skinny from my misery. Nice breasts from my wallet. My life may have been falling apart, but this? This was pretty good,” Stephanie said of undergoing a breast augmentation, adding she later had her implants removed.
