A massage therapist claims to have undergone plastic surgery to obtain a third breast.
Jasmine Tridevil (not her real name) says she had the surgery “a few months ago” and is now hell bent on starring in her own reality TV show.
The 21-year-old has hired a camera crew to follow her around and hopes to pitch her show to MTV. Writing on her Facebook page, she says she has upcoming appearances on the Jimmy Kimmel show and the Inside Edition.
Jasmine Tridevil says she had to contact more than 50 doctors before she found one willing to perform the surgery
“It was really hard finding someone that would do it too because they’re breaking the code of ethics.”
Of the one who agreed to carry out the operation, she claimed: “He made me sign a non-disclosure agreement as he was scared he’d get in trouble.”
Tridevil dreams of starring in her own reality TV show
Tampa resident Tridevil, who recently celebrated her 21st birthday, says her parents have not taken the news of her transformation well.
She said: “My mum ran out of the door. She won’t talk to me. She won’t let my sister talk to me. My dad… he really isn’t happy. He is kind of ashamed of me but he accepted it.”
Tridevil says the surgery cost $20,000 and that included a “nipple” implant. She claims to have had an areole tattooed around the nipple after the surgery.
Looks familiar: The three-breasted woman first made an appearance in 1990's Total Recall
She also revealed: “I got it because I wanted to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore.
“Most guys would think [the extra breast is] weird and gross. But I can still feel pretty because if I wore makeup and cute clothes, I can still, you know… feel pretty.”
Kaitlyn Leeb reprised the role in the 2012 remake of the film
Upon meeting a prostitute with three breasts, one enamoured suitor exclaims: “Baby, you make me wish I had three hands!”
The film was remade in 2012, and yes, the three-breasted woman made another appearance.
Toronto-based model and actress Kaitlyn Leeb took the role and even decided to display her (prosthetic) triple cleavage at a Comic Con event.
We think you’ll agree Leeb’s prosthetics are pretty convincing – could it be that Tridevil simply followed suit and hasn’t been under the knife after all?
