Aubrey ODay

Aubrey O’Day‘s fans were horrified by her distorted facial features in an ad posted to her Instagram.com page on Thursday. The 33-year-old former Danity Kane member is barely recognizable in the ad for an eyelash kit.

“Too much makeup and plumping girl! Your [sic] so hot without all this junk!” one shocked fan wrote in the comments.

Aubrey might be suffering from Body Image Disorder, a mental illness involving a distorted self image that causes the sufferer to obsess over a perceived flaw.

The sufferer spends hours in the mirror obsessing over imagined flaws in their appearance.

Signs & Symptoms

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) says the sufferer needs to exhibit the following three signs or symptoms to be diagnosed with Body Image Disorder or Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD):

    1. A preoccupation with a defect in appearance. The defect is either imagined, or, if a slight physical anomaly is present, the individual’s concern is markedly excessive.

    2. The preoccupation must cause significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

    3. The preoccupation is not better accounted for by another mental disorder (e.g., dissatisfaction with body shape and size in Anorexia Nervosa).

Other comorbid conditions that are linked to BDD includes anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideations.

Treatment

Treatment for BDD includes Cognitive and behavioral and talk therapy, antidepressant and anti anxiety medications.

Experts urge parents and caregivers to avoid telling children how beautiful or pretty they are. This can lead to body confidence issues and narcissism later on in life.

  • MissHarlem

    Guess her face matches her entitled attitude. Dem be the breaks ?

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    unfortunately, Aubrey seemed to think she was the breakaway ‘star’ of the group. she started really feeling herself and couldn’t be told. she’s “old” now to be still trying to catch a big break. sad part is, those industry dudes will continue to pretend she’s ‘next’ just so they can finish destroying her (mind, body, and soul), smh.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    man listen… iont know who gassed this girl up, but they did a number on her, smh

  • Coy little wink

    Wow. I blame Kylie

  • Elevated Soul

  • Karen Brady

    You feel me!!

  • Shamari123

    So you think you’re ugly or that your face is not pretty enough so you go and get surgery to look even worse than you originally did? Talk about hideous

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9832619d3c9b258210a4fbc85b43fcffd669119ad5f6735f5d041c5768797879.gif

  • klwbaby

    If Ms. Wonder Bread want to alter her face to look like an alien, go right ahead.

  • Karen Brady

    Nice. I think EEEEEK gives your response a flair of drama.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Lol don’t start, Karen Brady.

  • Harley

    Ewww she looks a mess. Digusting!

  • JV

    She looks like something from Star Trek.

  • Harley

    Aint that the truth!

  • LeeSeeCee

    What a waste of her money and STILL has NO success. She fully bought into her fake hype, lol..

  • Karen Brady

    🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I think this must be for her “fan base” in Dubai. When I see so many of these people, former celebs, ex reality buffoons, etc., I often wonder what are their LinkedIn profiles. Surely by now, they have regular jobs.

  • Passion

    Yikes!

  • NicoleZee

    Um, I don’t see anything wrong with praising children and complimenting them. My family told me I was pretty as a little girl. I’m not conceited nor do I have body image issues, so it’s not the same effect with everyone. If you never compliment children, won’t that lead to insecurities too?? Women are way too hard on themselves anyway. Aubry obviously needs help and treatment. I can understand wanting to look nice and be in shape, but you don’t have to get cosmetic surgery to feel good about yourself. People please learn to love yourselves first, and if someone doesn’t like how you look, tell them to go and f*ck themselves……easy!!!!

  • bhavana

    I hope she seeks psychiatric help before doing anything more to her face.

  • AQUEEN

    I think it maybe a bad makeup job more than anything

  • NicoleZee

    Exactly! We should be fine with how we were created. Nothing wrong with improvements and enhancements like makeup, exercise, etc. But cosmetic surgery is sometimes going too far! And if you can tell someone had cosmetic surgery, they went to the WRONG damn surgeon! Refund please!!!!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Y’all seen that guy that wants to be a Ken doll?!?! TRAGIC ?

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly….

  • THE Queen

    that aint bad makeup, she looks manufactured like kim k and lil kim and all these other chicks. thats wild. sop cutting on your selves

  • Ni Ni

    She is about at the point of no return. She almost has no nose left.

  • stav

    You can tell her breathing has been obstructed!

  • RealGzOnly

    Sad. Broads out here trying to look like their own clone! Scary.

  • Rita fontaine

    To bad she can’t reverse that face…..oh well

  • Ni Ni

    She looks like she’s on drugs.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Body dysmorphia is real y’all. Just ask Jocelyn Wildenstein, lil Kim, Kim Z, Nene, Tamar and the list goes on.

  • Coy little wink

    Lol….like the wonder twins I’m stealing this ?

  • Torae

    Everyone has the same billy the puppet face. She looks like Kim K, Kylie and the rest of those Instagram models?????

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    These folks so desperate for black features. They are the ones that look like baffoons! Whatever she selling I ain’t buying. Kim k, Khloe, Kylie- all them look like they put a curling iron on their lips. Sad, embrace your white features.

  • Lisa daniels

    Aubrey was pretty before who the hell she let do her face? An undertaker? Phaedra, did you do this to that poor girl? Looks like somebody put roots on her.

  • i troll it like i see it

    She used to be pretty, why would she do this to herself?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Damn.

    House of Wax style.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    “What happened to yo faaace?”

  • Kayke

    She looks like Kim K…. Everybody gets the same nose and then do their makeup the same…. Contouring and all that mess. Everybody looks like a drag queen or plastic.

  • interestingconcept1

    That makeup is what got her looking like the tin man. Stop with all of this conturing and highlighting..sigh.

  • Tink Tink

    You must be from the Lowcountry SC or GA, lol. I truly believed at one point my ex put root on me. I HATED,her but just couldn’t leave. She had my head FvCK’d!!!

  • PhillyFacts

    I am both.
    I’m doing just fine.
    I recommend both.

  • imright

    and that pink eyeliner aint helpin !!

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Let’s just blame Hollyweird that’ll get em all.

  • bemetoo

    lolololololol

  • Kimberly King

    Coming from someone who has worked in the makeup industry prior to becoming a teacher, red and pink eyeshadow make YT people look dead or distressed. Pay attention to scary or suspense movies and notice the reddish/pinkish eyeshadow they use on their low lash line. She looks horrendous. And honestly there was nothing wrong with the way she looked (judging from the pic on the left). GWORL !

  • Unhappy American

    She looks HIGH AF to me but OK ?

  • Missy

    ??????

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Who’s Kim Z?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    White trash Barbie from real house wives of Atlanta

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Kim Zolciak Biermann from RHOA

  • BloodBlood

    What in the entire crack f uck is going on!!!!

  • leapyearpisces

    I personally think something traumatic happened to her and Dawn Richard at the hands of Devil Diddy because Dawn suffers from it as well. She went and got her a WHOLE ‘nother ENTIRE face altogether. The only difference is that Dawn”s plastic surgeon apparently finished medical school. 😉

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    ???????

  • Pebbles

    She was already pretty before , but she is unrecognizable.

  • Pebbles

    Well! He did have his eyes on her but her mouth is what did her in aaand unbeknownst to Aubrey daddy had dawn on the razor also she was less mouthy than Aubrey

    And the other white Andrea she supposedly said bunk this she quit & returned to nursing school and was getting married…. don’t know if she did both or not

  • Faithz

    My goodness she paid money to make herself
    look like a dang clown, Smh.

  • Faithz

    Auntee This is a very Interesting Topic, Thanks.

  • Faithz

    There are more who are getting themselves
    Sliced, and Diced to what the European Look is
    Supposed to be, Just saying.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    On the left pic she already had surgeries.. She should’ve stopped there.

  • ArDnAhC45

    Her and Dawn look different. Sad…

  • Nala Shakur

    I believe i unfortunately suffer from this lowkey…i have spent a good chunk of my life trying to convince myself i was beautiful..like other girls..but at the same time constantly tearing myself down over my perceived flaws…i was teased a lot so much of it still lingers…i am a tomboy at heart so never really was a girly girl…I didn’t feel like i had those soft features like most girls have..and i got a riri fivehead my sons father used to talk so much shit abt it…it hurt me a lot…always hiding behind a side swoop lol now i jus wear it with pride…ain no way im fuckin wit my hairline like blac chyna ? I’m good…i like natural me.

  • Angela Flowers

    She looked like she walked up in there and said “let me get that Kim K special number 7…or whateva number Kim is on now.

  • violet_skyz

    She looks androgynous now. Low key that’s an in thing in hollwood

  • Enoughsaid2020

    When you lack talent, you have to do something, for attention. SMH!

  • Nessa

    The girl can actually sing she’s just messy

  • Rahab

    People project their own insecurities on others to make themselves feel better. Walk away from these people and never look back!!!

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I never heard her voice, only when she was in the group.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    This is I can’t believe, I just knew this was fake news, but naw, it’s real and very sad how this woman disfigured herself, this beats many (knifed up, gone bad) I’ve seen because she was a pretty girl, attractive, cute, whatever description of beauty you want to use.

    Not feeling like you’re good enough or look good enough, or not having or feeling your self-worth can be a challenge, seeking perfection is a downward spiral. But, this example kinda takes the cake for me!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Okay thanks.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Thank you. I forgot about her.

  • stacee

    What the holy f**k happened to her face????

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Your welcome.??

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    oh lawd…

  • Jussjess25

    Everybody wanna look like kim k. Even beyonce filling her lips up as well

  • rayne215

    no she dont. she gained weight

  • rayne215

    tiny and lil kim has this as well

  • Jussjess25

    Rayne keep believing that honey?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Someone on IG said she looks like Stuart from Mad Tv

  • SDot

    She needs Help. This is a cry for help. What ever doctor touch her face after this needs his L’s revoked

  • ShWa

    She looks horrible!

  • ShWa

    Yes, she wasn’t as bad there, she went too far!

  • ShWa

    That top lip puffy, and those cheeks-all bad!

  • Vegas1989

    I know. This is horrible. Both were cute girls in the beginning and just needed a stylist not surgery. SMH

  • Vegas1989

    Yep I think it might have been number 3.

  • Vegas1989

    Her nose is the same size of the mascara that she is holding in her hand…LOL

  • Jennifer

    Eeek! What kills me is there is no diversity in plastic land…all the faces end up looking the same. That’s why its so obvious when one of US has had work done because we don’t natually look like that, ever!

    Beverly Johnson, Traci Bingham, and Wendy Williams all look similar to the prototypical plasticface. Vanessa Williams, on the other hand, only gets botox so she doesn’t look like this. I wish Black women wouldn’t go this route, ever!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Aubrey could dance (for a yt girl), but she had nothing on Dawn – Dawn was the sleeper and had the right work ethic. Andrea had some sense too. Aubrey just assumed too much (’cause we know Puff ain’t loyal) LOL!

  • Nessa

    Lmao

  • Pebbles

    YEs she could! and he sure ain’t loyal (LOL!)

  • sunni_daze

    Like she used a mask morohed of them both.

  • YellowSauce

    there is … it is not obvious on some folks because they don’t go over board and have good surgeons so you don’t notice they also take care of themselves to maintain

  • YellowSauce

    Aubery’s mental condition is Hollywood … it affects millions
    it usually happens while they watch TV and listen to the radio but gets worse when they get on the LAX Red Eye … After a few parties and being in the same company as any a-z list celeb and you can forget treatment … they are too far gone for reversal … blonde hair blue eyes big lips and booties some sort of designer bag and that’s IT … you will never see them in true form AGAIN …. lol
