It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, and five years after her diagnosis, Wanda Sykes is just getting used to her new “girls.”
In 2011, Sykes talked openly about her diagnosis and decision to undergo a double mastectomy. Now, she says her body is better than ever.
“I am used to the new girls. It took a while,” Sykes told Ellen DeGeneres on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Monday. “You know, the old ones, I had broken them in. We got along. They didn’t bother me. I didn’t bother them, you know?”
She went on, “I’d wake up in the morning and I’d be brushing my teeth and old boobs would just be like, ‘Hey,'” she joked. Now it seems that her new boobs have a mind of their own. “The new boobs, they’re like 22-year-olds now. They want to get out and do things! I gotta show them my ID ever now and then to show them, ‘Hey, I’m 52.'”
She is definitely in love with her new body, but there is one woman Sykes just can’t get behind.
No, we’re not talking politics. We’re talking dolls. Her daughter Olivia’s Barbie just doesn’t sit right with her.
“We bought her [Olivia] the Barbie with the Dream House. And, I was just like, ‘What does Barbie do? What are we teaching her?'” she said. “My son’s toys do things. Like, his Transformers is a robot and then he plays with it and it’s a car. He’s learning things. He’s using his mind.”
“But what does Barbie do? What does she transform into? A ho,” Sykes joked. “Barbie is just a starter kit for the ‘Real Housewives.'”
