It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian is still one of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood … But how far would you go to look like the reality TV beauty? For one woman, nothing is too much!
24-year-old England resident, Claire Leeson has come forward and admitted that she has spent $30,000 dollars to look like Kanye West’s wife. During an interview with ITV’s This Morning, Leeson revealed that the reason for her new look was to gain self confidence after being bullied and taunted throughout her childhood.
“I’ve had my teeth whitened, then I wanted my boobs enhanced … and with pictures [of Kardashian] explained to my surgeon that I wanted to look like this,” she said. “I also wear bum padding, it’s a silicone base. Pants with silicone inside.”
Claire became obsessed with the 33-year-old mom after watching an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians back in 2009. “So I watched [the show] and realized I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on,” she explained. “I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her.”
Leeson admitted that she is in major debt and that her obsession with trying to look like Kardashian has ruined a relationship … But she still won’t give up her life as a Kim Kardashian lookalike. “I work, my job doesn’t pay enough … I’ve used credit cards to pay for everything. I’m in major debt,” she told the show’s hosts, Ruth Langsford and Ben Shephard. “I say that I’m going to pay them but as soon as money comes in I just think about getting my Kimmy on.”
She added, “When I get my Kimmy on I feel like I’m unstoppable and untouchable and I feel like no one can stop me and I can make something of myself. I feel strong … and I feel that I have built enough confidence to love myself a little bit more.”
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
