Many believed she had gotten a nose job, which she denied, but now, Kaley Cuoco is admitting the reasons why she actually went under the knife.
The surgery was to correct a deviated septum-and Cuoco admitted on her recent appearance on The Ellen Show that she actually had been addicted to nose spray in the past-which led to her needing the procedure in the first place.
"I had sinus surgery the day after Christmas and it has been the worst surgery of my life, very painful. And on top of it, everyone thought I got a nose job, which is so funny because if you know me, I would have told you that I got a nose job, I'm not going to keep it a secret," she told Ellen DeGeneres. "But I was actually really addicted to nose spray, like Afrin, before, for years."
The Big Bang Theory star then went on to admit that she was surprised no one knew of her addiction before now.
"Like at awards shows, I would have to pick out the right clutch to be able to fit my Afrin in it, and I would be under the table like snorting it," she admitted. "I'm surprised there are no photos of 'what am I snorting?' It was Afrin, and I couldn't get enough and it was such a problem, and I ruined my sinus so I had to get it fixes and I had to have a surgery."
Cuoco also went on to praise her husband, Ryan Sweeting, for taking care of her during the time (and even shared a hilarious video of he shot of her snoring with the show's audience), but admitted that she hasn't been very good at being a wife lately, and joked that the combination of her snoring and forgetting to thank him after winning her People's Choice Award have dampened the couple's plans to start a family.
"Not only did I not thank him, I'm snoring, my ex thanked him, I've been the worst wife, it's just been one of those things," she said after sharing the video.
"I was gonna ask you if you're starting a family, but probably not because of that," DeGeneres said. "I mean, that's not going to help anything."
"No, that's not helping anything, it's not a turn on," Cuoco admitted with a laugh. "It's not been sexy."
