Follow-up posts are the theme of the week. After discussing the BOTOX® Bandit’s probation sentence yesterday, I will delve into yet another favorite topic today. Sheyla Hershey is breast implant queen no more. Her massive 38KKK breast implants have officially gone down for the KKKount.
At the Cosmetic Surgery Directory blog, we have been following Sheyla’s escapades for several years now. We first took notice when she upped her breast size to 34FFF several years ago. We thought that was already going a bit too far, but Sheyla was determined to push the limits of excess a bit further – all in the name of fame and glory.
Sheyla has stated in several interviews that one of her life’s dreams was to have the world’s largest breasts. When American plastic surgeons refused to gift wrap that dream for her, she packed her bags for Brazil, where the plastic surgeons are apparently a little more apt to sell out their scruples for the right price. Sheyla returned home from her Brazilian breast augmentation vacation with brand new 38KKKs and a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Shortly thereafter, Sheyla discovered that there was a serious price to pay for becoming the undisputed breast implant champion of the world. Her silicone behemoths did not want to cooperate with her body, and a nasty staph infection developed that ultimately threatened her life.
Yet Sheyla would not be derailed in her quest for supreme breast implant vanity. She was living her dream and God dammit, she wasn’t going to let something silly like a life threatening staph infection shatter that dream.
That is, until now. I’m not sure why the light bulb finally went on, but Sheyla has done a 180 and decided that her life was more important than her gaudy implants. As of now, Sheyla Hershey is implant-free for the first time in many years, and it is a bitter pill for her to swallow:
“I know it’s going to be a lot of pain on me because I love to have them, but I realize that my family comes first and I love my daughter and son and they come first. Even though I love to have huge breasts, I don’t know why, I’m just addicted to it; I’m going to try to live without it. Hopefully, I will be done then and be happy and just running around with my kids!”
Yes! Run around with your kids. That’s one thing you can do now that you couldn’t do with that 38KKK silicone albatross bouncing around on your chest.
I’m sure Sheyla hasn’t thought about running in years. Maybe she will get inspired to take up tennis now that she can run again. Maybe she can take her kids to Brazil – the site of her breast augmentation disaster – and they can run along the beach together.
I can picture a montage scene reminiscent of Rocky III (when Rocky keeps racing with Apollo along the beach).
At first, we would see the undisputed world breast implant champion version of Sheyla trying to run with her kids, but her massive boobs would just keep bouncing up and down, hitting her in the face. Maybe we’d even see some silicone shoot right into her eye as she trips and stumbles onto the sand. Can you picture the look of dejection on her face? The utter embarrassment as she wipes the sandy silicone out of her eye?
But then she sees her kids frolicking down the beach, and that look of shame turns to one of determination. Sheyla will rise again. As we hear the Rocky theme music in the background (“Gonna fly now…”), we also encounter a leaner, meaner, slimmer, more flat-chested Sheyla doing her best impression of Marion Jones along that same Brazilian beach. The sweat is pouring from her bleached blonde hair as she tries desperately to catch her kids in full sprint. At the final moment, she bursts by them and they all dance around in the ocean together. It is a cinematic moment for the ages – one that sings the praises of silicone redemption.
Of course, this version of the film omits the scene where a large black plastic surgeon with a Mohawk and 30 pounds of gold chains around his neck deals Sheyla’s implants the ultimate knockout blow as he says, “I pity the fool who thinks she can stay undisputed breast implant champ for long. Fool, you ain’t got nothing on Dr. T!”
