Big Brother season 11 finalist Alex Rose Lee comes out of the closet, gets a rad makeover
Alex Rose Lee, who was a finalist on Big Brother's 11th season, has now come out of the closet and declared herself gay after she underwent an amazing transformation and turned herself into a literal "Barbie girl".
The celebrity told Diva magazine that she knew it for a long time that she was majorly attracted to the same sex, but hid her true identity and called herself bisexual for personal reasons.
"I’ve known since I was younger that I’ve been attracted to women. It’s only quite recently that I was able to find the strength to come out and say, 'Look, I’m gay.'"
She continued, "I was saying to people over the last couple of years that I was bisexual. It wasn’t until I was at Gran Canaria Pride that I was like, 'You know what? It just feels so great to be around so many strong women and men.'"
The reality star even shared the moment where she came out to her parents as homosexual, especially her mother.
"When I arrived back to the UK, my mum picked me up at the airport and I said, 'Look, I need to tell you something.' And I just said it in the car park. She was just made up about it." She added, "I think she knew anyway, but I hadn’t said it out loud and being able to say it I feel so much better. I felt like a huge weight off my shoulders."
For those who haven't noticed her in the past, Lee has undergone a major transformation since her appearance on Big Brother back in 2011. The star has since then treated herself to a few cosmetic enhancements and plastic surgeries like a boob job and lip fillers.
Lee shared about the reason behind her transformation and why she decided to undergo all the surgeries in the first place. "In a way it's sad, because when I saw myself on telly, it wasn't me. It wasn't what I thought I looked like. It really affected me over the years with body dysmorphia."
She added, "Using the money and getting surgery and changing the way I looked, it's made me into the person I always wanted to be. It's like a fresh start."
