Lacey Wildd lives up to her last name. The proclaimed "human barbie" is preparing for her 37th cosmetic surgery, and I'm a little perturbed to be honest. According to Cosmo, the "extreme Barbie" has been living on a diet of only an apple, lemon juice, and water for the past six weeks. Oy.
Obviously, doctors have informed Wildd that this type of behavior is a no-go: the combination of major surgeries and poor nutrition is potentially fatal. That doesn't seem to be slowing her down, however. She's undergone thinning of the nose and widening of the eyes in order to look more doll like, and now she's prepping for another breast augmentation. Her new, and arguably dangerous size, will be QQQ.
Surprisingly, this kind of extreme desire to look like Barbie is not uncommon. At all. A whole passel of human Barbies and human Kens are out there, all looking equally disturbing. Let's face it (literally): dolls are creepy to begin with. Living, breathing, flesh-covered dolls? It's the stuff my nightmares are made of.
"I feel really good but I still think I need to lose more weight," Wildd said, according to Cosmo. "I want to go down to a size 3 or even a 0. I want to have the most extreme body in the world, I want to be a walking cartoon character. But I know I have to be careful."
Oh dear. I'm all for people doing what it takes to boost confidence and self-image in a healthy way. I'm no doctor or body image expert, but I'm going to go ahead and assume this intense desire for cosmetic surgery is way out of bounds. Look at her boobs! Triple Q? I don't think I can recite the alphabet to Q, let alone carry around that cup size. Ouch.
We can only hope that Wildd gets some help surrounding her cometic obsession, and takes her doctor's advice. I don't think the "apple a day, keeps the doctor away" applies to eating only an apple every 24 hours.
