(Newser) – Beware, Heidi Montag, or you could end up like Sheyla Hershey: She achieved her dream of having the world’s largest breasts, but now she’s fighting for her life because of them. The Brazilian model, who now lives in Houston, got all the way up to M-cups before downgrading when she got pregnant last year. After her last breast augmentation in June—the most recent of more than 30 plastic surgeries—Hershey suffered a severe staph infection in both breasts.

Staph infections can be life threatening, but one breast is already improving. The other, however, is still in danger—and might need to be removed entirely. Hershey went into surgery yesterday to have her implants removed, MyFox Houston reports. She says her son has been asking her to downsize her breasts, and she is trying to get over her plastic surgery obsession.

I'm surprised FoxNews would even talk to someone with such a thick accent. This probably didn't get air time in AZ.

that photo of her is just disgusting. what in the world was she thinking? and no, i'm not going with the dumb blond jokes. i had a roommate once who had a breast reduction. before she went into surgery she was in constant pain with back aches, bra straps cutting into her shoulders etc. i don't know what her before size is, can't remember, but she told me that the surgeon took off 5lbs from each breast. could you just imagine carrying around a 5lb bag of flour or sugar on each side of your body? and this freak thought that 38kkk boobs were what? inviting? irresistible? no just a side show freak show.
