Carolina "Bimbo" Gynning Shows her Breasts ...

Carolina Gynning, once the winner of the Swedish television real life soap Big Brother, shows Alexandra Pascalidou her breasts in TV4's Förkväll, saying:
I'm as sexy as you are!
And Alexandra Pascalidou says:
Congratulations Carolina! I love your new Self!
Carolina Gynning has now taken out her breast implants creating such a fuss in the media not long ago when she implanted them. And now she sat there in the TV studio, dressed in a strict suit and strict hairstyle with her former breasts in her hand and bandied them around. And Pixi, just wondered ...

Yes, I did! I have been gifted with real breasts. In the size L. So I have never really understood the sense of implanting breasts unless for medical reasons,
says Pixi who thinks that the media circus that Carolina Gynning's breasts and sexlife has created is just plain stupid.

And yesterday, Carolina Gynning was invited as a guest to Stina Dabrowski's talkshow Stina! in SVT1. And Britt Ekland was also there, and she also wears breast implants. About her fake breasts, Britt said that she NEVER got used to them although she put them in years ago.
The implants don't feel like a part of me! she said.

And Carolina Gynning told Stina that she now is seeing a therapist. And that she has come to the conclusion that she has tons of problems. Which? She didn't want to tell when Stina asked. But if you want to know, Pixi says that it's not difficult to guess.
And Pixi, she REALLY hopes that the this therapist of Carolina's REALLY can help her!

Izabella Scorupco - Ex Slimming Bimbo!

Izabella Scorupco, 37, ex Slimming Bimbo, ex Bond actress and model for the Swedish fashion company Lindex, said in an interview in the Swedish magazine Plaza Kvinna (Plaza Woman) that she during a period of her life slimmed on cherries and a handful of popcorn / day!

And the slimmer she got, the more encouragement she got! From her employers at Eileen Fords modelling agency in New York!

Izabella says that she in the beginning of her career was completely focused on weight. When she was 17, 18 years of age she was on a constant diet. And once, when she got back from New York, her weigh was 50 kilos!
"My mum, who never cries, started to cry at the airport!" Izabella says.

And Izabella is convinced that all models are devoted and hard-working slimmers.
"On stage the look like fantastic panthers, but in real life they are extremely tall and extremely thin."

And Pixi believes Izabella. 100%. And she hopes that NOBODY! follows her bimbo slimming diet on cherries and a handful of popcorn! If you read Swedish, you can read more about Izabella Scorupco and what she has to say about slimming, her in aftonbladet ....
