A reality TV star who once made her living off of selling jars of farts online has found a safer but still disturbing new way to make money after she was hospitalised for her flatulence.
Yup, you read that right.
Stephanie Matto, who gained a following after appearing on the reality TV show ‘90 Day Fiance’, switched up her diet to make her gas smellier and more frequent. She took to Instagram to share what she ate in a day, and it's no joke (or is it?).
“I like to get things rolling with some beans, a protein muffin, sometimes even a yoghurt (less sugar is better), some hard-boiled eggs," she said.
"While waiting for farts to develop I like to read. I’m very smart, I love to read.”
Unfortunately, she wasn’t smart enough to forsee the consquences of her wind-breaking ways. She ended up having to be hospitalised after her bowels disagreed with what she was chowing down.
She talked to Jam Press about what led to her heading to the hospital.
“I could tell something was not right that evening when I was lying in bed and I could feel a pressure in my stomach moving upward," she explained.
She thought something was wrong, maybe even a heart attack, so she and a friend headed to the hospital, hopefully with the windows down.
“It was made clear that what I was experiencing wasn’t a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains,” she said.
“I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business.”
A sad story for sure, especially for all the fans of her flatulence.
However, Matto, ever the entrepreneur, found a new bodily secretion to sell to adoring followers - her boob sweat.
She let her 300k followers know about the new product by posting a video of her sunbathing while holding a jar of the supposed sweat.
She also let us know how she obtains the valuable product - hint, it's not exactly back-breaking work.
She then sells the stuff for $500 a pop. Sheesh, say what you will but that's a hell of a way to make a living.
