    Default Famed Dermatologist Fredric Brandt commits suicide

    after comparisons to Martin Short's freaky doctor character in the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Daily Mail article.

    I don't want to speak ill of the dead but he was very scary-looking. RIP

    Reporter: Doctor Found Dead Was Devastated by Martin Short Impersonation

    According to the New York Post, Dr. Fredric Brandt—the celebrity dermatologist behind the many faces of Madonna and Stephanie Seymour—was found dead Sunday in his Miami home.

    Brandt’s publicist, Jacquie Trachtenberg, confirmed his death to Page Six's Emily Smith, saying, “He passed away this morning. He was suffering from an illness. Everyone who knows him is devastated... I worked with him for over 20 years and he was an amazing man, not only was he a brilliant doctor, but he was the kindest human being.”

    But a Miami Herald blogger says Brandt was also depressed and "devastated" by a Martin Short character thought to be based on him.

    According to a New York Times profile published last year, Brandt freely admitted to testing new treatments out on himself.

    And there is Dr. Brandt himself, who has experimented over the decades with self-administered injections of Botox and an array of fillers — Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm, Voluma — as each new substance gained approval of the Food and Drug Administration and entered the marketplace. The result is a mask of serene immobility, a face with a creaseless brow, a square firm jawline, lips feminine in their puffy fullness. His skin is impressively smooth and so pale as to lend him a lunar aspect. Strangers often inquire, Dr. Brandt said, whether he is from Sweden.

    “Actually,” he replies, “I’m a Jewish kid from Newark.”

    When asked why he worked such late hours at his lucrative practice, he reportedly said, “I want people to feel they haven’t given up on life and are still in the game."

    If all of this is true, it's really sad he was fragile enough for it to help push him over the edge. He should have given them the finger and carried on raking in the dough.

    That's not speaking ill; that's just a statement of fact.

    or tina fey ,since this is her show. and lots of people are saying she should feel bad about this on other sites, which i think is bullshit. i mean, the doctor in kimmy schmidt was obviously based on this guy but lots of characters are based on real people.

    That's because people like to oversimplify suicide. They're always looking for 'the' reason. Suicide doesn't usually work that way.

    Come to think of it, people like to oversimplify everything, and life itself doesn't usually work that way.

    I'm sorry he died but having madonna as one of your celebrity clients is not exactly a ringing endorsement for his dermatological expertise.
