Domestic abuse survivor Carmen Tarleton has become the first person to undergo facial transplant surgery twice after her body rejected her first one.

In 2007, Tarleton was attacked with a baseball bat and sprayed with the chemical lye, which left her badly disfigured, blind in one eye and legally blind in the other. She underwent life-saving surgery to remove the scar tissue around her eyes, but according to the Christian Times Newspaper, she also has had her nose and lips snipped so doctors can give her a slightly larger nose like her husband did for her.

In March, she began treatment for a second operation — the one on her face that will produce a more extreme result. In 2009, all of her body's nerves and tissue had been transplanted into her face — and each stage of the procedure has strengthened her tissue by allowing more cells to be transplanted. Her black eyelids have been replaced with a white cloth to conceal the new opening in her face. Her nose has also been completely replaced, and the world's longest scar — up twice her face — has been removed, making the only visible eye hole the surrounding skin.

But Tarleton said she hadn't been ready, and inside her heart was a tiny voice telling her to be patient.

"[She] told me the choosing process can be complicated but that everyone that goes through it either leaves the institution or claims their holiday," said Andrea Stoffella, Tarleton's lawyer. "[That] decision to take care of my client is what I am going to do."

Tarleton, who has had a series of facial surgeries over the years, is currently undergoing a second transplant . The procedure, known as a face transplant, is a risky surgery that only 1.6 percent of patients manage to endure. But Tarleton, who underwent facial amputations before Part de Dieu, insists she never had that sort of hesitation.

"That first surgery — I consider that second one probably a little safer, more controlled," she said. "But I didn't defer and have the protection I thought I'd need after the first one. I was still injured and worried about feeling like it was my fault that things went off course and that I'd get back what I'd lost. So I'm confident I'll do good after both."

Beleaguered A&E Network Vice President of programming Dennis Haysbert will reportedly end his career at the network, effective promptly and effective April 1st. According to Variety, Haysbert's contract was set to expire at the end of the month.

According to Reports, the network is reportedly wrapping its investigation into accusations made against Alx James and saying that there is "no evidence" that Haysbert sexually harassed or bullied young interns by requesting nude photos before he hired them.
