Jasmine Tridevil, the Triple Breasted Woman. We know, sounds like a circus side-show tent. But Tridevil went under the knife, not for the benefit of drooling carneys in overalls and paying customers of Barnum Bailey’s, but for reality television.
File this one under the what-were-you-thinking category of obtuse stories. But this is not a drunken evening anecdote that ends with a “how did that get there?!” morning revelation of an ill-remembered shoulder tattoo. It’s more along the lines of, well, we can’t think of any bizarre metaphor or obfuscated explanation that even comes close.
But try this: Remember that scene in Colin Farrell’s “Total Recall,” where he stumbles across the triple-breasted mutant? Here’s a video reminder, should you require one.
Tridevil (not her real name), a 21-year-old Florida massage therapist, is borrowing a page from something that lands roughly between whacked-out porn and nuclear DNA contamination, and found a doctor that was willing to construct a third breast centered on her sternum.
“It was really hard finding someone that would do it, too, because they’re breaking the code of ethics,” Tridevil said. “I called like 50 or 60 doctors, nobody wanted to do it.”
Yeah those ethics can really get in the way of crazy cosmetic surgery. Finally she found someone willing – evidently this guy.
Tridevil, who is actively seeking a role in reality television, said her extra breast feels like the other two, save the nipple, which she had to have tattooed on.
Excuse us while we wretch our chicken salad sandwich all over the keyboard.
“My whole dream is to get this show on MTV,” she said. “I’m dumping every penny I have into this. If this doesn’t work, I’m through.”
Good goals there. A real go-getter.
“I got it because I wanted to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore,” she said.
Mission accomplished. As for her mom and dad?
“My mum ran out 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,” she said. “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.”
Writes the HuffPost: “On her Facebook page, she thanks followers for sharing YouTube videos featuring her swiveling her hips in a tri-cup bikini. She also hired a camera crew to follow her around so she can pitch a reality show to MTV.”
Not that we even have to ask, but any thoughts in the triple nipple? Tridevel, who said she doesn’t want any attention from men, is now getting it… left, right AND center! A little tit for tat?
