A former reality TV star, who became famous for selling farts, and earning big bucks, is retiring due to health issues.
Stephanie Matto, 31, from Connecticut, made around 200k USD from farting and selling her products. Her career was ended abruptly, as she ended up in a hospital after chest pains. It turns out that Steph went a bit too far with her business.
The doctors did EKG/ECG and took blood samples. 90 Day Fiancé star's symptoms were caused by her infamous diet, which consisted of too many beans, eggs, and protein shakes.
Stephanie Speaks Out About The Experience
Steph sold her farts in a jar and even had a special diet to fill out all the bottles and send them to her loyal customers. She started her career in November after receiving offers for her farts on the adult platform Unfiltrd.
One bottle cost 1000 USD, but due to high demand, her diet and eventually health deteriorated.
Matto told Jam Press:
"I thought I was having a stroke and that these were my final moments. I was overdoing it."
"I could tell that something was not right that evening when I was lying in bed, and I could feel a pressure in my stomach moving upward. It was quite hard to breathe, and every time I tried to breathe in, I'd feel a pinching sensation around my heart."
After calling a friend, Stephanie went to the hospital, where she was told it" wasn't a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains."
Due to doctors' concerns, she is now on a new diet and has to "take a gas suppressant medication."
Bananas As The Key Ingredient
Reality TV star explained that she had no idea that the demand would go that high:
"I honestly could not believe the demand. I think a lot of people have this fetish in secret."
During her two month gig, she changed her diet to make her farts more attractive:
"I think that certain foods produce better smelling farts, so I usually tend to go with the smoothies as opposed to things such as cabbage and eggs."
The menu included black-bean salad, onion, and ham-and-pepper omelets.
Stephnie's short-lived and strange career brought her mixed reactions:
"I have a lot of people praising me, calling me a girl boss, telling me that I inspire them to be unashamed of who they are and what they do."
"But on the other end, I have been getting a ton of negativity. I have even received death threats, people telling me I should end my life, and so on."
Her message is clear:
"In this day and age, we need to stop tearing people down for their choices."
"Especially if their choices are literally hurting no one."
Matto is "working on digital fart jar artwork at the moment."
