There’s a rather interesting documentary headed to BET. Executive produced by Lala Anthony, Killer Curves: Bodies To Die For, will take us inside the lives of several women who will share their experiences with the risky but popular and sometimes fatal side of cosmetic body alterations.
Singer-songwriter and Love & Hip Hop reality star K. Michelle has been very vocal about the dangers of silicone butt injections after making the decision last year to have them removed.
“The first surgery went well, so we thought, until my body started to shut down while I was on tour,” she revealed on Instagram. “I later found out the silicone had spread and I would be rushed back into surgery. Last Wednesday I entered surgery barely functioning with my legs and an infection. The surgery to remove all of this from me lasted a long 6 hours.”
We will hear from other women who will share why they sought to have these procedures done and the consequences they have faced while trying to achieve the “perfect” body.
According to BET’s official description of the upcoming documentary, for decades, the ideal female body type was said to be tall and thin. In recent years, however, the rise of video vixens and reality TV stars have redefined and influenced that image in a profound way. Today, thousands of women are resorting to risky body modifications to emulate the exaggerated curves of the hottest pop culture female figures. The documentary features a range of voices.
Killer Curves: Bodies To Die For is scheduled to air on BET Wednesday, August 8th at 8PM EST.
