Celebrity lookalikes who have taken on the personas of Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Marilyn Monroe, and Barbie, are documenting their complicated love lives in a new reality series.
Look Alike Love follows Los Angeles-based impersonators Jennifer Ward, Yuriel Michell’e, Jasmine Chiswell, and Nannette Hammond as they try to balance their personal relationships with their desire to transform into their favorite stars.
‘I’m the number one Kim Kardashian lookalike,’ Ward says in the trailer for the show, which premieres on Lifetime on Wednesday, July 7.

Ward has dedicated her life to looking like the brunette reality star, but her family isn’t impressed. They miss the old Jen, but she’s not the only one who has taken their celebrity obsessions to the extreme.
Michell’e, a transgender drag performer, wants to become the top Beyoncé lookalike in the world, while Chiswell purchased Marilyn’s old home and believes the ill-fated actress communicates with her.
And Hammond has spent roughly $1 million on plastic surgery to transform herself into Barbie, the most famous doll in the world.

Ward, 29, has developed a full-blown obsession with Kim Kardashian over the years and spends thousands of dollars on hair, makeup, and clothes to look just like the curvy star.
The professional makeup artist and beauty influencer has nearly 90,000 Instagram followers and has dubbed herself the ‘number one Kim Kardashian lookalike.’
In the preview clip for the show, Ward tells her husband that she has made an appointment with a plastic surgeon.
‘I have the booty, I have the hourglass shape, but my stomach, it’s just not there,’ she explains in her testimonial.
Unhappy: Despite her success, her family doesn’t approve, and they make it clear in the trailer that they miss the ‘old Jen’
Hard to handle: One of her family members is concerned she will live her high school sweetheart-turned-husband (pictured) behind as her star continues to rise
Ward was bullied as a child, and her transformation began years ago when she started her fitness journey with the help of her high school sweetheart-turned-husband.
Emulating the world’s most famous reality star has helped boost Ward’s confidence, but it has also caused a rift with her family, who doesn’t approve.
‘I just don’t want you to turn into this big superstar and leave him behind,’ one of her family members tells her in the trailer. ‘This is an unhealthy obsession.’
Ward insists she’s ‘not obsessed,’ but her words fall on deaf ears.
‘You used to look like Jen and now you look like Kim Kardashian,’ her loved one hits back.

Michell’e is working to become the number one Beyoncé lookalike in the world, and she is well on her way to achieving her goal.

Michell’e, who has more than 90,000 Instagram followers, takes advantage of the resemblance whenever she can, often getting her meals and club covers comped.
‘Every man on the planet has a fantasy of f**king B, and I’m the closest thing they’re gonna get,’ she boasts.
The Beyoncé doppelgänger works as a hairstylist by day, but she dreams of finding fame as a rapper and touring the world as Michell’e.
Unfortunately, her larger-than-life aspirations seem to be negatively affecting her love life. The reality show’s trailer shows her arguing with her partner, telling him that she wants him to be with her.
‘That takes time; that takes preparation. You’re expensive,’ he replies, prompting her to storm away into her bedroom.
‘Just leave!’ she yells.

‘I believe that you are probably possessed by Marilyn Monroe,’ the expert says.

However, her husband is less than pleased about her plans to go under the knife yet again, especially since she didn’t run it by him first.
‘My mind is blown right now,’ he admits. ‘These are big, life-changing events.’
