Nov. 16, 2009— -- In this age of camera cell phones, viral video and paparazzi, it's nearly impossible for a celebrity to go unnoticed.

That is until television's "Secret Celebrity." The E! Entertainment special, which aired last week and re-airs tomorrow night on E!, put professional prosthetics on Hollywood socialite Kim Kardashian and pop star Nick Lachey, and fooled even their biggest fans.

"When you have such big celebrities, they are always being pandered to by their fans," Nick James, manager of development for E! studios and one of the show's executive producers, told "They wanted chance to see what their fans really think of them."

So Kardashian, with the help of award-winning Hollywood makeup artist Matthew Mungle, put aside her famous good looks and was transformed into homely Cynthia.
