At first I was a little skeptical about the whole show but, after I did some investigating about the women involved, I am kind of curious. The women involved were all down since day one. They were the women who held their men down, not some groupies they picked up along the way. From radio personalities, to boxers these are an array of women who live normal lives with Celebs as the men in their lives. I definitely will be tuned in to see what happens.
First and for most, I want this to be discussed critically, I welcome feedback. I am not giving my opinion based on something I read about or heard about. This is personal, because this involves a part of my own life. Recently, model Pebblez Da Model was arrested on charges of homicide due to butt-injections.(She is to be considered innocent until proven guilty) Now, being that I knew her personally I was taken aback by this news, so immediately I investigated the matter. Apparently a young woman from Atlanta was murdered when she received butt-injections packed with cement. My goodness, CEMENT!! The stuff you lay on sidewalks that last for years. SOMEONE, negligently put this is a human’s body. Where was this person’s moral compass? But wait; let me take you back to a place, so you can familiarize yourself with why I think this is so inhumane.
June of 2006, I recently got out of the military and embarked on what I feel now to be a foolish, yet inspiring journey. I began dancing, I was about 140 pounds or smaller and had ZERO behind. I mean the thong was baggy. This situation of having no ass was bad, Michael Jackson BAD. So I had a friend that referred me to a person (no names) that administered me about $700 worth of shots. Now, being that I had no butt I didn’t want to go from ZERO to 60 overnight. I felt, a little bump would get me by. First of all, let me tell you about this needle. This needle had to be horse needle; I have NEVER seen anything this big in my life. I would say that the part of the needle that actually goes inside of you is about 6 inches long. Let’s talk about the pain, this person, told me for an extra couple hundred dollars she could numb the area. I foolishly declined, thinking that I was tough. I screamed like a skillet was being shoved in my butt no KY. That’s exactly how it felt. She put whatever, (To this day I have no idea what was put in my butt, we will get back to this) I mean Jello, peanut butter, gelatin, silly putty could possibly be swag surfing in my butt to this day. BUT, I will say that what I saw looked clearish and after about 9 shots, in both of my cheeks I could barely walk. She sealed the shots with super glue and stuck a cotton ball on the end. She then told me to soak the cotton balls off that night. Well, being the fast, flight catching heffa, I was at the time. I had to wobble to the airport to make a flight. AS SOON as I got to my destination I soaked off the cotton balls. I remember the dude I went to see was like, “did you get shots?” I remembered feeling good because I felt like, I FINALLY HAD A BIG BUTT.
Naivety and low self-esteem are the things I attribute to hazardously placing foreign matter in my body. In the three years that I danced, I had seen girls go from sticks to build a bears. Well, build a strippers. Even women who were just modeling, or just wanted an enhancement all came looking for the cheap alternative for getting an ass. Let me tell you something, my butt is bigger now than it ever was. I say it was because of natural body changes and squats. I now have to worry about some foreign matter in my body that could possibly make me ill, for a few years of “living the life” or “dancing”. I always get girls emailing me asking where they can get shots. Mainly because I am an open book, I feel no need to live in shame of my choices. Maybe this story can inspire just one girl from making this possibly life threatening choice. It was dumb, I regret it. I would NEVER recommend this to any girl. Love your future health and you more than some man’s objectivity. That money you are investing into a butt, so some raggedy man can say you are fine, invest it in your teeth, your hair, your skin. TRUST when I say someone will like you for you, no need to conform your body to make someone else temporarily happy. Looks fade, but work on something that lasts like your soul.
No back alley, mystery concoction, is worth your health. I sit and wonder in 20, 30 years will all of us, who made that life choice feel as pleased. Now having to watch our health for things swimming in our blood stream. Now if you want to go to a REAL doctor and get those enhancements done. By all means knock yourself out. I am not opposed to plastic surgery. Then I wonder about Pebblez, who is now sitting in jail. Does she feel responsible for this other woman’s death? Even if she just referred the girl, she is somehow responsible in my opinion. All of us, who have gotten this done know that this is illegal and could possibly have some health ramifications. So we are all guilty to some degree for not being proactive about the dangers of this situation. For going and getting bigger butts so we can feel accomplished when Drake walks in the club and demands the girls with the biggest butts. What a joke. This lifestyle is so fickle and not one you can make a career out of. Invest in yourself ladies, not things that fade like simple butt shots. It’s just not worth it.
