Laura, 47. Tennessee.
She says she's a writer but she's disabled. Ummm. What disability keeps a person from writing? She says she has colon cancer. And to satisfy internet trolls...IM NOT A DOCTOR!!! Don't come to me for medical advice! Thank you.
"I'm living on borrowed time. I should be dead."
Her husband is a psychologist yet he can't help his own wife. He's living in garbage.
Michelle is her daughter. She felt like her mother was always ruining their lives.
For some reason another daughter is living there with her kid. 18 months old. Get babies out of here! Move out of your mom's house.
It's Tonya Harding who we all learned last week is actually Robin Zasio.
Every house is always the WORST HOUSE they've ever been in. Bull shit! Tell me which one was the actual worst house. I don't believe a word you say from here on out.
"The feces is just falling out of it." Tonya Harding. Oh yuck! It was just all over everything. Poop everywhere. Right next to beds and stuff. The shame has set in for the hoarder.
The hoarder was crying then just got a nose bleed. Now she is catatonic and looks like Ozzy Osbourne.
She's up and worried the cleaners didn't have masks on.
Now she's cleaned up and happy. Hopefully that lasts. Laura died September 15 at peace her family didn't have to clean up their mess.
Penny, 44 from Michigan.
She works for the government. The federal government. I wonder what exactly she does. I'm betting on assassin.
Ladies and gentlemen, we've got poop.
This son thinks he's the new Dad and it's creepy and I don't care for it. He doesn't understand that they lost their electricity because his Mom doesn't pay bills. He just knows he can't call an electrician in cuz they will see the house and take him and his baby brother away.
Pete is Penny's brother. Henry is Penny's father. He owns the home.
The hoarding started when her Mom died. She died at 54.
She sleeps with her son on the sofa! Yuck City.
"In twenty years it's going to be twenty times as worse." Hoarder's kid and fill-in husband.
Bun hoarder lady! Suzanne Shebough
Penny's hoarding is at SEVERE LEVEL. Let's say that's Stage 5 Level.
I think the specialist should probably not refer to hoarding as "acquiring."
4 years ago an incident happened at her Dad's house that was very super traumatic and not good. It was a 44 room house with apartments in it and I don't know her Dad's new wife had to throw some things away and she just lost her shit about it. I think that's basically what's happening here.
"Oh Jesus. Get your door on straight at least." Scott
Oh it's the Certified Professional Organizer Specializing in Chronic Disorganization. She's got helmet hair. I kind of hate her. For no good reason.
Husband Son can't believe he let it get that bad. You see, he thinks he has to be the man of the house. That is just sooo creepy.
*Commercial Commentary* What's this shit about Tony Danza teaching kids? Let's not do that, America.
Oh great. Penny has a creepy doll of a young boy. It got thrown in a box with toys and she says it's an heirloom. She was certainly really concerned with it before when it was sitting in a pile o' garbage.
She looks like a lady version of John Lithgow. Lady John Lithgow Husband Son is going to need so much therapy.
*Commercial Commentary* The next episode promises to be the worst hoard the expert has ever seen. Yes, they all are the worst ever seen. Stage 5. Level Severe.
Husband Son is so happy he's balling his eyes out. Good god I feel so awful for him.
Oh look a futon without a cushion. Futons are uncomfortable enough with the cushion.
"That poor kid is a Lions fan. That's so sad." Scott
