Real-Life Ken and Barbie Dolls
image Steve Erhardt boasts that he's had over 30 plastic surgery operations, at a cost of over $250,000. These include pec, bicep, and butt implants. The results look a little creepy, but he claims to be happy with his new look, even though he really does look plastic. Another real-life Ken doll is Miles Kendall, who has spent about the same amount of money to transform his appearance. In terms of real-life Barbie dolls, there's Cindy Jackson, who describes herself as a "bombshell who wasn't born that way." Of course, Michael Jackson easily retains the title of King of Awful Plastic Surgery. (via J-Walk)

Sometimes I wonder who is creepier, Michael Jackson or the people who love and defend him.

"Second, there is absolutely -no- question that Michae Jackson is the -best- performer out there, there is just denying that."

"... These include pec, bicep, and butt implants. ..."

Sheesh, some people will do ANYTHING to get out of exercising!

one of the really scary things anout the real Ken, is that he had no Manly Bulge...truly- just a V, just like Babs...how many kids did that scar for life...ar least GIJoe had scars And a manly bulge, but that's the world of Wartoys, eh?

If this is an improvement, he must have been really pathetic before.

I wonder if he's just like Ken below the belt too.

Botox is poisonous.

There is an Australian guy (probably from Queensland) who is having himself converted into Barbie. This has included removal of some ribs, and (I think) leg extension by breaking and stretching. When seen on TV a couple of years ago, the voice wasn't right. But I've never heard Barbie myself.

I heard that people can get addicted to this sort of thing. Weird...

Yeah.. Surgical addiction is very real, ditto tattoos. Generally it's a low self-image/esteem thing.. They're trying to make themselves better people, not just physically, but mentally/socially. Very similar to eating disorders, really. If the 'body' is perfect, then the person inside must be as well, right?

Personally, I've met folks with a lot of work done.. they tend to be very shallow, self-absorbed, and grouchy. Me, i've got a spare tire, thinning hair, and bad skin.. and I'm comfortable with it.

That may be true of surgical addictions, but with tattoos... I just like the pain...

Oprah did a show on surgery addiction. One woman on there really did look like a living Barbie doll.

Not only these persons are creepy: the surgeons who work on them are too.
