When the freakish and abnormal go too far (whatever “too far” means), normality starts to beckon

But is it too late to go back?

The story, from today’s New York Post, is a sort of illustration of the previous entry, “The inversion that is our norm.”

Heidi Montag wants her old boobs back


The poster child for plastic surgery gone wild, Heidi Montag, wants her G-cup breast implants removed. “My boobs are crushing me,” Montag moaned to Life & Style. “I have major anxiety about it.” The reality star, 23, who endured 10 hours under the knife last November to achieve her “perfect” body and almost died from a Demerol OD during recovery, is looking to downsize her breasts to a not-so-modest D or DD cup. Montag says the surgery ruined her marriage to Spencer Pratt. “No one wants to be taking care of his wife who looks like she’d been in a horrific accident,” she said, adding he “begged her not to do it in the first place.” Montag claims she now wants to live a simple life in Costa Rica. “I just really want to get out of Hollywood … I don’t have anything back home: no family, no friends.” She posed with little makeup and exposed two inches of roots for the photo spread. “I won’t get anything done again,” she insisted, “at least not for a long time.”

Thanks VFR for discussions of the freakish and abnormal. As with the old issues of the National Geographic, the illustrations are invaluable.

I happened to tune in to the Miss Universe pageant during the swim suit contest. As each of the finalists walked out on the stage, I noticed that every one of them had what appeared to be enhanced breasts. None of them had smaller, natural looking breasts. I would think the pageant would exclude any contestant with evidence of plastic surgery. Just goes to show how far things have gone.
