If you've been following the tale of Debrahlee Lorenzana, who claims she was fired from Citigroup for being too distractingly good-looking, you''ll know that the burden of being beautiful is something she has struggled with her "whole life." Being head-turningly attractive is not a gift, as one might think, but a cross she has had to bear. "I get harassed in the supermarket with my son just wearing sweatpants with my hair in a ponytail," she lamented at one point. "I can't help how I look." Some nights, it even keeps her awake — wondering what it might be like to just look like a normal person, with frizzy hair, a poochy stomach, and a less Jessica Rabbit–like chest.
"If being less good-looking," she says, "means being happy and finding love and not being sexually harassed and having a job where no one bothers you and no one questions you because of your looks, then, definitely, I'd want that. I think of that every day."
But in fact, Debrahlee already knows what that's like, because back in 2003, she got a tummy tuck, liposuction, and two boob jobs to bring her rack up to its current 32D size.
The process was chronicled by the Discovery Health Channel, and the Daily News dug up the video, in which Debrahlee expresses her desire to look like "a Playboy Playmate."
"That's what I want to be: t--- on a stick," she titters in "Plastic Surgery New York Style."
Well, we all have dreams. Debrahlee's lawyer says this new information about the authenticity of boobs doesn't have any bearing on her case against Citi, and he might be right: If they really fired her for being too bodacious (which they deny), it doesn't matter if her boobs were fake or not. But it does cast some doubt on the authenticity of her statements.
