Human Barbie Doll Subject of New Documentary

“Space Barbie.” The Real live Barbie Valeria Lukyanova has taken the internet and Youtube by storm for being able to transform herself into the American famous toy. She is unapologetically all girl and not just another pretty face. “I like everything beautiful, feminine and refined, and it just do happens that is what dolls are based on,” says Lukyanova.

The controversy

Known around the world, the Ukranian model went from Youtube to Jezzebel and V magazine spreads. The human barbie’s smallish features and fixed stare helped photographers to transform “the look.” What took everyone by surprise is the doll-like appearance actually looks as if she is the plastic proto-type.

The extreme image made people wonder what the real life person must be like on the inside, especially in an age when individuality and a person’s quirks are what make the person. Some feminist abhor the Barbie doll and the “cookie-cutter” image and what it represents.

Did she or didn’t she

The rumor mill has run mad with stories about rib removal, breast augmentation, and plastic surgeries, but the doll-faced girl swears it’s all makeup and some studies may touchup the pictures just a bit to add to her image of doll-like.

Spiritual one-tank trip

Space Barbie. The “Human Barbie Doll” has another side, her spiritual side using the Barbie-look to draw attention to the enlightenment of being.

“I am a lecturer on the subject of out-of-body experience. I am a beautiful, inspiring young woman talking about spirituality and you can see what people choose to focus on. People hear and see what they want to. I have a vast amount of work to do on myself. When people think they’ve reached perfection that is when the degradation begins.”

Her homemade spiritual advice videos on Youtube add a few makeup tips, and it’s easy to look beyond her alien-like appearance. She has an enormous following, for just the numbers of “haters” in her closet she has just as many supporters.

Is it live or is it Memorex

The Human Barbie even does a séance in her documentary to prove her remote skills, with her real life friends she refers to as “soulmates.” At one point the groups resorts to a bird whistling technique that Lukyanoya says aligns you with your spiritual DNA.

Has the “plasticity” gone to her head

She’s been to a psychiatrist she claims to check on the “voices” in her head, and visions of other planets. “He said I was very lucky, anyone else would have taken me to the “special place.”

The Human Barbie has a sister Olga, “I never thought my sister would be called a Barbie. She’s always had this doll-like look, but a doll in associated with an unintelligent person, and my sister is very intelligent and interesting to talk to.”

Dr. Oz talks extreme weight loss ‘thigh gap’ diets and magnesium energy boosters

For several years, girls, teens and young women have been obsessed with achieving the newest slim sensation: Thigh Gaps. But their extreme weight loss plans can pose dangers, according to Dr. Mehmet Oz. On his Feb. 25 talk show, Dr. Oz explored thigh gap diets. Plus: Find out how to boost your energy with magnesium.

As an example of how these diets can become obsessive, Dr. Oz talked with Camille Hugh, author of “The Thigh Gap Hack: The Shortcut to Slimmer, Feminine Thighs Every Woman Secretly Desires” (click for details). Camille feels that her book does a service in offering tricks such as overcoming hunger, exercises and focusing primarily on very low calorie foods. She defended her desire to achieve the thigh gap look.

However, Dr. Oz is concerned that books and views such as Camille’s can lead to eating disorders. He asked eating disorder specialist Dr. Jennifer Thomas to offer her insights.

Author of “Almost Anorexic: Is My (or My Loved One’s) Relationship with Food a Problem? (The Almost Effect),” Dr. Thomas notes that Camille’s emphasis on extreme weight loss and low body fat parallels the development of anorexia. By obsessing on those goals, young girls are at risk of developing eating disorders.

In addition to the emotional aspects of anorexia, girls focused on developing thigh gaps put their health at risk, warned Dr. Oz. They may lose muscle, which impacts the metabolism and even can affect the heart.

Also on the show, Dr. Oz discussed magnesium for energy and health. Symptoms of insufficient magnesium include constipation, anxiety, fatigue and muscle spasms. Studies show that up to 75 percent of American adults lack enough magnesium.

To boost your magnesium levels, eat these foods:

  • kidney beans
  • black beans
  • brown rice
  • quinoa
  • bran cereal

2014 ‘Bachelor’ spoilers: Is it all over for Juan Pablo & Nikki Ferrell?

Reality Steve spoiled earlier in the season that Nikki would win the final rose, but there are conflicting reports about how this season turns out. From rumors that Juan Pablo is already cheating on Nikki to a former “Bachelorette” star stating that “it’s all over” for Nikki, there is plenty of gossip to keep fans wondering what’s really going on between “The Bachelor” and his final pick.

Does ABC pay ‘Bachelor’ Juan Pablo to propose to Nikki on ‘ATFR’ special?

Here’s the latest gossip about Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell:

Juan Pablo loves Instagram and photographs himself with a variety of women, both friends and fans. Many fans assume that he is cheating on his rumored final pick, Nikki Ferrell, with at least one of the girls pictured on his Instagram.

Galavis was recently spotted out on a date at a Miami Heat basketball game, accompanied by singer Mayra Veronica. Several gossip sites claimed that they were “huddled close together” at the game and assumed they were dating. Either that, or Juan Pablo just loves the company of gorgeous women everywhere he goes. Read more here: Is Juan Pablo already cheating on his final pick?

Former “Bachelorette” Desiree Hartsock and her fiance, Chris Siegfried were guests Jason and Molly Mesnick’s recent podcast on Kiro Radio. During the foursome’s conversation, Desiree mentioned how it’s “over” for the other girls on the show because Juan Pablo introduced Nikki to his daughter and family during last week’s epsiode in Miami. Jason Mesnick agreed, saying that “He would not have introduced her unless he liked her a lot.”

Contrary to Twitter rumors, Desiree was not saying that it’s over for Juan Pablo and Nikki. Instead, she felt it was over for the other girls on the show and that Nikki had an unfair advantage when she met Juan Pablo’s family.

Reality Steve still maintains that Juan Pablo chooses Nikki at the final rose ceremony. However, the king of all spoilers states that he does not give her an engagement ring and he speculates that their relationship will not last long, something that’s totally believable. Fans should be shocked and amazed if they make it one week past the “After the Final Rose” special that airs right after the finale on March 10, 2014.
