"To land a reality show" should NOT be a career goal.smiley - facepalm

"To become unattractive to men" strongly suggests she's a very disturbed young woman.

I'm not saying that she should want to be attractive to men, I'm suggesting that she probably experienced some traumatic encounters with men in her life.

Those who are interested might want to revisit the Snopes article I linked to above regarding the "Florida Woman" impersonating Eccentrica Gallumbits. Snopes has much more info and have declared her a fraud.
