The definition of “ridonculous”…..
…..is Heidi Montag deciding to get bigger boobs.
I hate to waste even more ink on this poor girl, but I am hoping that she will serve a purpose. The public is actually seeing something relatively unique – we get to watch the mind of a body dysmorphic disorder patient working in real time. And anyone out there who has doubts that this is a screaming example of body dysmorphic disorder, is delusional. I hope that watching her will scare some of the girls who think that a boob job is all that stands between them and popularity. I hope that watching her will shame those plastic surgeons who would ignore the signs of BDD and operate on these sick people to make a buck.
I am a bit pessimistic, however, after seeing a recent episode of EXTRA where Dr. Frank Ryan operated on a lady who sought him out because she thought that he did such a fine job on Ms. Montag. Really? Well, I guess it all worked out as expected. She got publicity, a reality show and, I’m sure, lots of money to appear on other shows. He got publicity and lots of new patients who are flying in because they admire his work.
I guess we will see, won’t we? Its only human to be fascinated by a train wreck in progress.
