Barbie-Obsessed Woman Makes Herself Brainless

While most of us are always trying to find ways to sharpen our minds, one California girl is undergoing hypnotherapy in hopes that it will lower her IQ — yes, really! According to The Huffington Post, the "Barbie-obsessed" woman is taking extreme measures to make herself look and act like a living doll. Touting "natural as boring," 38-year old Blondie Bennett has had five breast enhancements (read: double-J size), as well as other procedures to look as, well, fake as possible. "I don't like being human, if that makes sense," she said.
But, her latest effort involves going under — no knife necessary. Bennett is enduring weekly hypnotherapy sessions in an effort to "dumb down her thoughts." Is it working? According to Bennett, it is. Only 20 sessions and she's already feeling dazed and confused. Don't people take meds to not feel that way? And, who said Barbie was dumb anyways? Somehow, we remember a doctor, astronaut, and business executive in our toy box. Check out the Bennett video below. (The Huffington Post)
