The Chimp Lady face is hot. The “Chimp Lady” is the lady who was mauled by a chimp. The “Chimp Lady” face is a tragic story, as a lady’s face was completely removed by an irate chimp.
Charla Nash was 55 on the fateful February day when her friend and employer called to ask her to help coax her chimp back in to her house. The chimp never has been aggressive, and even liked to water plants and drink wine from a stemmed glass. Charla Nash had no reason to believe that Travis, a 200 pound chimp, would maul her face.
The Chimp Lady face is missing eyes, nose, and lips. The Chimp Lady drinks from a hole that doctors created in her face. Hopefully one day Charla Nash will be able to have a face transplant, but until then she remains in a severely deformed state.
Prior to showing up on the Oprah Winfrey show, Charla Nash always wore a scarf around her face. She isn’t ashamed of herself, she just doesn’t want to scare people or make them uncomfortable. For the first time, on her 56th birthday, she took off her scarf and let the world see her – on Oprah.
The Chimp Lady face story is inspiring. The Chimp Lady holds no hard feelings for her friend, the owner of the chimp that changed her life. She’s not bitter, and doesn’t want to know too much about the extent of her injuries. Although she just found out she won’t be able to see again, she still remains very positive.
The Chimp Lady’s family is also inspiring. Her brothers and daughter have been with her every step of the way. The fact that 56-year old Charla Nash is still alive is a big blessing.
Travis the chimpanzee responsible for the attack could have been provoked by any number of things. His owner spiked his tea with Xanax to calm him down. The Xanax could have caused a reaction in the chimp that wasn’t expected. The chimp could have felt threatened by Charla Nash, as she just had her hair cut and looked a lot different than she used to.
Animal experts point out that exotic animals are unpredictable and dangerous. This is why they should be kept in controlled environments – not a human home.
Still yet, Charla Nash – the Chimp Lady as she has been dubbed – is an inspiration for all. Her positive outlook on life should be commended – an example that true beauty is on the inside. Charla is one of the most beautiful women in the world.
