Jumping into a big swimming pool full of lies and photoshopped waistlines is a lot for the modern woman to deal with, so we talked to Melissa about how seeing all that stuff makes her feel.
The girls on TV and the Internet always have better teeth, boobs and hair than girls in the real world. It’s like jumping into a big swimming pool full of lies and photoshopped waistlines. It’s a lot for the modern woman to compete with, so we talked to Melissa about how seeing all that stuff makes her feel.
PRETTY REAL: Why do you hate your body?
MELISSA: I never said I hate my body….
Sorry, how do you feel about the way you look?
It could be better. I guess I could lose some weight.
Why do you say that? You look fine to me.
Well, I’m not exactly magazine material, am I? Unless they start making magazines for chubby size 14s with small boobs and no butt.
There probably are few magazines out there like that. Why do you want to change? Is it because magazines don’t accept people who look like you?
Nah, it’s not that. I guess I’d just like to feel less self conscious about my body when I go out. I always feel like the girl sitting next to me on the tube is dressed better or has nicer tits or longer legs. It’s like every day’s a beauty contest.
That doesn’t sound like much fun.
It’s not, but that’s life. Women are judged on how they look, and men are judged on how much money they make.
Do you think having “the perfect body” would make you happy?
I dunno. Maybe. Probably not, but it would make me feel a lot more confident.
I always hear girls saying that they “don’t dress up for men” and that they “hate getting approached by guys,” etc. Is that true? Who do you want to impress?
That’s bullshit. Of course we dress up for guys. If you take the time to look good when you leave the house, then you want everyone to notice, both men and women. All that “I dress up for myself” stuff is a lie. On the rare occasion when I actually feel sexy, I’d be pretty upset if no guys looked at me.
Who do you think has the perfect body?
I like Kim Kardashian’s, she’s got a nice ass.
You know she bought that, right?
Yeah, but it still looks good. If I had enough money, I’d buy some new tits, an ass and get some lipo.
So what if you did all that stuff and nobody cared?
I’d probably pay to get more work done, then I’d sit around the house all day making money from my flashing my over-sized breasts on the Internet.
That sounds like fun. Do you ever get really down about not looking like Kim Kardashian?
The other day, I was in the bathroom and I’d just come out of the shower. I was staring in the mirror and I just started crying for no reason. I felt so stupid. My boyfriend had just dumped me, so it may of been that. He never really made me feel secure about my body.
Do you think someone can be fat and happy?
Maybe, but they’re probably suicidal inside. I really can’t imagine someone being overweight and truly happy. That just doesn’t happen.
