PHOTOS:Meet The Woman With ‘The Most Expensive Body On Earth'

 


Busty blonde and celebrated transsexual party-goer Amanda Lepore,, has been labeled as having the most expensive body on earth.
Now 46 years old, Amanda had a sex change operation from male to female at the age of 19 and according to her, that was the most painful procedure she’s ever done.

Amanda will later invest so much in extreme plastic surgery including three breast augmentations,
butt implants. She even had her bottom ribs broken so she could achieve a smaller waist. Plus multiple nips and tucks, 5ft 2in Ms Lepore boasts a perfect hourglass figure measuring 38-22-38.
Facially she has had lip injections, fillers, Botox, a nose job, a forehead lift and her hairline lowered.

Asked how much her cosmetic work has cost in total, the busty blonde declined to provide an answer, merely stating:
'There is a reason I am labeled ‘The Most Expensive Body On Earth’.
Amanda's father, an Italian-American chemical engineer, and her mother, a German-American housewife who was schizophrenic and spent much time in mental institutions, both found it difficult to accept their daughter's transgender identity at first. They refused to take her to ballet lessons and stopped her from growing her hair long but eventually, they supported her transition.

Riot Outrage In Lagos State University, Students Stone VC (Photos)

 



Lagos State University students today went on the rampage  disrupting the university’s second semester examination, destroying properties in the process and even stoning their University Vice Chancellor Prof. John Obafunwa as he made to escape their wrath.

Trouble started in the university when their VC decided not to open the registration portal for over
2,000 students who were yet to register their second semester courses as exams was to begin Thursday.
According to the students, only 708 were able to register before the portal was shut again leaving,
1292 students to their fate.

When the students union government went to plead on behalf of the students, the VC was reported as saying those yet to register are insignificant and would automatically have to carry the session over, a statement which infuriated the students and they decided to take laws into their hands.

They started a riot, destroyed properties in the school and threw sticks and stones at the Vice Chancellor’s convoy as he made to escape through an alternative route beside Conoil Filling station.

Why Yaya Toure Beat Mikel To Win The CAF Award


Most Nigerians especially fans of English club Chelsea cried ‘blue murder’ yesterday night, when Ivorian and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure was announced winner of 2013 African Footballer of the Year (making it a third in a row).

But statistics point to the fact that the Ivorian deserves the accolades based on his performances in 2013.
Let’s not get confused, the award is basically an ‘individual award’, so the football club you play for or the country your represent winning all the prestigious tournaments like the FIFA World Cup, Nations Cup, Champions League or Europa League might not have any bearing or lead to your winning the award. It is your personal performance that will win you the awards at the end.

“Sometimes when I cry in movies, it isn't the script that makes me cry. When I recall my humble beginning, I give thanks to God. When I remember how we moved into an uncompleted building and had to take cover whenever it rained because of the condition of the house; how my brother did a menial job as a bricklayer to earn a living and those days when we rolled over a stick to cover the windows up till the point when I started acting and raised money to cover the roof… I recall those days we were living with lizards because the floor and the walls of the house were not plastered, or when I had scars as a result of my several falls.” She disclosed.
