Kim Kardashian is, by societal standards, an attractive woman. She’s got an impressive rack, a gigantic ass, hourglass curves and enough plastic surgery performed on her to create a face that is, technically speaking, rather flawless. With that in mind, I suppose it’s not entirely shocking that there are women out there who would want to look like her… and would spend money to do so to the tune of, say, $30,000 (£18,000).
That’s what happened with 24-year-old Claire Leeson from the UK, who is “up to her eyeballs” in debt after becoming obsessed with Kim from watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians and undergoing multiple cosmetic procedures to get the Kim K look. She calls it “getting [her] Kimmy on”… seriously. And she even makes money off being a Kim K impersonator. Dear God.
Leeson has spent over 30 thousand dollars to transform herself into her idol. She’s undergone breast augmentation and regularly pays for teeth whitening, makeup, padded underwear (the Metro refers to it as bum padding which makes it sound fun and quaint but also not 350 pounds fun and quaint), hair extensions and extensive tanning. She pays for it all with credit cards and is now in extreme debt due to her transformation. She’s even been summoned to court, but that’s not stopping her. Leeson’s now looking into more extreme measures to emulate Kim. Her latest plan is to have fat transplants to her butt so that she can achieve Kim’s glorious derriere without the silicone prosthetics she currently wears.
Why are people so fucking crazy? Girl, no. Here’s her full interview on This Morning – and some more comparison pics – are below the cut:
