Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. The Huffington Post brings our attention to 24-year-old Claire Leeson, who spent an estimated $30,000 to look like reality TV queen Kim Kardashian. Apparently the money went to breast implants, hair extensions, spray tans, makeup and clothing to emulate Kardashian, who’s 33 years old.She explained to ITV that the extreme makeover was done in an attempt to gain self-confidence after being bullied as a teen.
That’s an interesting coping mechanism. Via Huffington Post:
“I’ve had my teeth whitened, then I wanted my boobs enhanced … and with pictures [of Kardashian] explained to my surgeon that I wanted to look like this,” she told “This Morning” hosts Ruth Langsford and Ben Shephard. “I also wear bum padding — it’s a silicone base. Pants with silicone inside.”
So how’s she paying for it? ON CREDIT, of course! God bless America:
I work, my job doesn’t pay enough … I’ve used credit cards to pay for everything. I’m in major debt. I say that I’m going to pay them but as soon as money comes in I just think about getting my Kimmy on,” she explained, adding:
“When I get my Kimmy on I feel like I’m unstoppable and untouchable and I feel like no one can stop me and I can make something of myself. I feel strong … and I feel that I have built enough confidence to love myself a little bit more.”
I’m all about people doing whatever the hell they want to be better people. But it scares me this girl is doing this to herself on borrowed money she doesn’t have, which is definitely going to lead to some issues down the road.
I think I need to lay down. All this makes me feel ill.
