Demi Moore told David Letterman last night that she’s a fan of leech therapy. The 46-year-old admitted to visiting Austria to partake in a detox treatment that involves your body being covered in leeches. Demi said, “I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy. These aren’t just swamp leeches though – we are talking about highly trained medical leeches. These are not some low level scavengers – we’re talking high level blood suckers.”
Why bother going all the way to Austria when she has her own leeches at home – her daughters!
She said you get your body ready for the leeches by shaving and bathing in turpentine. “They have a little enzyme that when they are biting down in you it gets released in your blood and generally you bleed for quite a bit – and your health is optimized. It detoxifies your blood – I’m feeling very detoxified right now. I did it in some woman’s house laying on her bed. We did a little sampler first, which is in the belly button. It crawls in and you feel it bite down on you and you want to go, ‘You bastard.’ Then you relax and work on your Lemaze breathing just to kind of relax. You watch it swell up on your blood, watching it get fatter and fatter – then when its super drunk on your blood it just kind of rolls over like it is stumbling out of the bar.”
Demi also can’t wait to visit Austria again for a second session. She only had 4 leeches the first time and felt a little cheated. Demi definitely needs to go back for a second time, but only to let the leeches suck the blood out of her head. Methinks her head is full of blood and that’s why she’s trying all these zany beauty treatments. It’s not that serious!
I’m also calling bullshit on her story. When she said “Austria,” she meant Beverly Hills. And when she said “leeches,” she meant Botox.
Here’s Demi with Tallulah Belle, Bruce and Fetus Girlfriend at the premiere of “Flawless” in NYC last night. Whatever Demi’s using, it’s working. Her daughter looks older than her.
