A LaLa Anthony-produced documentary at BET is set to premiere soon.
The documentary, Killer Curves: Bodies To Die For, is also narrated by Anthony.
It “investigates the increasingly popular and sometimes fatal trend that is globally impacting the lives of many women of color: black market cosmetic surgery.”
The network says in the description: For decades, the ideal female body type was said to be tall and thin. In recent years however, the rise of video vixens and reality TV stars have redefined and influenced that image in a profound way. Today, thousands of women are resorting to risky body modifications to emulate the exaggerated curves of the hottest pop culture female figures. The documentary features a range of voices, including recording artist K. Michelle, who discusses how her struggle with body image pushed her to repeat the procedure several times in a quest for perfection.
The documentary airs Wednesday, August 8 at 10 p.m.
