Yes, I realize there are more devastating things in the world to write about right now – say, Haiti? Because that is as devastating as it can get, and I am certainly not comparing the two. But we also have this woman below. She indicates to me a deep disaster waiting to happen in American society that can lead to more and more young women copycats going under the knife. Here we have a role model to many younger girls, and what has she done? And further more, why has she done that?
I plan on writing a fully disclosed article on AND Magazine as to why I cannot fathom how a beautiful young 23-year old girl named Heidi Montag from the television show The Hills went through 10…count them, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 facial surgeries in one sitting to get her from looking like this:
to looking like this:
And still think she looks amazingly better than before. She doesn’t even look like the same person. I overdramatically plea, “What has our world come to?!”
Last night, when I read this article online and watched the video of her on People.com explaining how this is the happiest she’s ever felt about herself, I just stared with my mouth hanging open for a good ten minutes. No, literally, I think it may have been longer even. Even Katie Piper, the acid burn victim, had less facial surgeries than Heidi has had. It makes me sad that she can be so deceived…it’s her face and she can do what she wants to it, but at what cost?
