If you take a step back and have a good look at our celebrity-obsessed culture, it really is quite bizarre. We spend hours and hours of our lives reading magazines and watching TV shows about people who we’ve never met, probably never will, and who might not give us the time of day even if we did.
For the most part, celeb gossip is harmless fun, but there are those who fall off the deep end, and dedicate their lives to trying to become their favorite celebs.
Mum-of-three Xochytl Greer, from Texas, revealed this week that she’s spent over $20,000 on surgery, in a bid to look just like Meghan Markle. She’s happy with the results, and claims that her 2 year-old daughter now confuses the real princess for her mom.
Greer, 36, said that she was at a pretty low ebb in terms of her self confidence, when she had her youngest daughter two years ago.
“Previously I felt no matter how much make-up I put on or how I fixed my hair that I wasn’t properly presentable,” she said. So, of course, her solution was to spend thousands of dollars trying to turn herself into someone she’s not. Sounds healthy, right?
Well, a whole load of liposuction, a rhinoplasty, fillers under the eyes, lip filler, jawline filler, Botox and a butt lift later, and Greer says she finally feels like a real princess again.
“When I look in the mirror, I’m happy again,” Greer said. “I still see me, but a better version of me. I’m at the point where I feel I can put myself out there in the world again…”
I think you could have achieved that without trying to look like Meghan, but whatever works for you, I guess…
“I don’t think I look identical to Meghan Markle, but I do see our similarities a lot more now, my nose definitely resembles hers more closely.
