How many cash bonds would you trade in for a shot at looking like your favorite celebrity?
Say hello to Claire Leeson: The British woman who’s racked up nearly $30,000 in credit card debt in her quest to stun the world as the next Kim Kardashian.
Leeson was bullied throughout high school and found solace by immersing herself in a world of reality television shows. Claire says she became obsessed with Kim after discovering the socialite’s family reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, in 2009. In the years since, Lesson has undergone several surgical procedures and invested thousands of dollars in a luxurious wardrobe in her bid to emulate Mrs. Kanye West.
So what costs so much just to look like Kim? Here is an approximate cost breakdown:
Breast Augmentation- $8,500
Shoes and Clothes-$5,400
“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.”
