In 2010, fashion expert Carson Kressley flew to Alberta, Canada, to meet Dawn, a 44-year-old mother of two. At the time, Dawn had breast implants, lip and Botox injections, eyelash extensions, fake hair and nails, and a wardrobe that left little to the imagination.

As part of an unforgettable Oprah Show makeunder, Carson helped Dawn embrace her natural beauty...but that didn't last long. A few years after the show aired, Dawn admitted to Oprah: Where Are They Now? producers that she had reverted back to her old look.

Now, in this exclusive update, Dawn opens up about the highs and lows she's experienced the past few years. In 2013, Dawn got married in an elaborate ceremony. "[It] was, in my eyes, the most beautiful Cinderella wedding that anyone could have," she says.

Dawn also celebrated a milestone birthday with friends and family. "I just turned 50, for crying out loud!" she says. "We went down to Cancun and had a fabulous time."

In 2014, however, Dawn's life took an unexpected turn when an accident landed her in the hospital. Watch as Dawn opens up about the terrifying ordeal and shares how it gave her a new perspective on life.
