Thalia Almodovar was born a man and she has spent £70,000 turning herself into the reality TV star- Kim Kardashian. Thalia was born male but remembers crying when she had to use the boys’ toilets instead of the girls’ at school.
She transitioned to female when she was in her teens, and had surgery on her boobs and bottom in her early 20s. Soon, it was easy for the New Yorker was being compared to Kim.
Thalia, 28, says: “I couldn’t see it at first but then I embraced it. I’d get preferential treatment in clubs and restaurants. People would mob me for selfies.
Some £50,000 has gone on surgery, including a bottom enhancement to match Kim’s all-natural biggest asset, as well as breast implants to complete the voluptuous look. Another £10,000 on clothes and the same on shoes helps her keep up with Kardashian.
The make-up artist said: “I also get collagen in my lips every six months – it makes me feel better about myself. I love being mistaken for Kim.”
Now she is looking into becoming a professional lookalike.“I’d like to be famous for who I am, but why not?” she says.
And she wants her own Kanye West – though finding love has been difficult. She says: “Sometimes guys just want to talk to me because I look like Kim without getting to know me – that annoys me.
“I had this guy that dated me only because he had an obsession with Kim. I’m single now so I’m on the lookout for my own Kanye.”
