Sunday night’s episode of “Kim and Kourtney Take Miami” was a hot, bloody mess. Literally. On the show, Kanye’s baby mama received a “Vampire Facial” – ie, an anti-aging skin treatment using her own blood. And yes, it was as gnarly as it sounds.
Apparently, coating a patient’s skin in her own blood has radiance-boosting effects. So, as Kim’s wispy BFF Jonathon Cheban looked on in horror, the dermatologist extracted blood from Kim’s arm, and then massaged it onto her skin using a device affixed with nine tiny needles. Despite being treated with a numbing lotion first, the 32-year-old moaned and groaned throughout the gruesome procedure. “Oh my God,” she cried, “I will never get a facelift if it feels like that!”
This facial was over-the-top gross, but to be fair, women have been purifying their skin in blood since the dawn of man (ever heard of the 16th Century Hungarian Countess, Elizabeth Bathory? She’d lure virgins into her castle, slaughter them, and bathe in their blood to preserve her complexion). We’re pretty sure it’s the first time anyone’s been shameless enough to film it, though.
