The Season Premiere Of “My Strange Addiction” Features “Maskers” (AKA Something New To Haunt Your Nightmares)

Let's be clear: there's nothing "strange" about men dressing up as women; if that's what you're into, whether it's just for fun, or a sexual kink, or you moonlight as a drag queen, go for it. But there is something a little odd about "maskers," men who dress up in head-to-toe latex female doll outfits,…

Can A Doll Really Be Your Soul Mate?

Getting to the heart of why I continue to be riveted by TLC's "My Strange Addiction" (I know I said I would take a break after the dirty diaper sucker, but I just can't!), it makes me ask questions I otherwise would never think to wonder about.

“My Strange Addiction” Tackles Dirty Diaper-Sucking

Pee drinker? Whatever. TLC's "My Strange Addiction" can pack it up and go home after last night's episode featuring Keyshia, a woman who is addicted to smelling and chewing on DIRTY diapers. I mean, at least the…

“My Strange Addiction” Face Off: Would You Rather Drink Blood Or Pee?

Let's play a game of "My Strange Addiction" Would You Rather.  You go first. Would you rather drink blood or drink pee? You have to pick one, "neither" is not an option. While you think about your answer, let's take a moment to remember Carrie from last season, the woman who had been drinking…

There's a love of natural medicine ... and then there are the people who are so into natural medicine that they end up on TLC's "My Strange Addiction." Margaret, 53, is one of the latter.

“It’s Got A Cotton Ball Taste,” Says The Woman Addicted To Eating Cat Hair

Yesterday, I had dim sum and was feeling adventurous so I ordered chicken feet just because I was curious. Not exaggerating, one bite and I gagged. They were so gummy and gelatinous, I wanted to die. I felt nauseous for most of the day and into this morning. Sometimes, when I am disgusted by something,…

9 Strange Celebrity Addictions

TLC's "My Strange Addiction" is everything I could have longed for in a show and more. I am like a kid in a candy store grappling with toilet paper consumers, rock eaters, compulsive nail growers, and even pee drinkers. OK, so the pee drinking episode was really hard to watch. But most of…

The Real March Madness (The Final Four): Rush Limbaugh Vs. Obsessive Pee-Drinker

Whoa, we're getting down to brass tacks here. In one corner, we have Noted Cro-Mag and All Around Conservative H.R. Puff-N-Stuff Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh's been blathering over the airwaves for years, spewing his particular brand of toxic anti-lady crap. It's Rush's completely bombastic misogynistic drivel that's taken him all the way from the…

The Real March Madness: Toenail Grower Vs. Pee Drinker

First, there is Ayanna, who is addicted to growing out her toenails. She looooooves her toenails so much, and has gotten them to crazy lengths. Beyond crazy lengths. But the kicker? Her toenails are only part of the problem. She's got redonkulously long fingernails, too, that cascade down and curl around. How doe…

Cancer-Stricken Woman Drinks And Bathes In Her Own Urine On “My Strange Addiction”

I gotta be honest: the season finale of "My Strange Addiction" may be going too far. Over the course of the show, I've been weirdly fascinated by the various detergent eaters, tanning addicts, and nail talon enthusiasts, but a cancer-stricken woman who drinks and bathes in her own urine? No. Just no. Carrie, 53, ha…

Woman With The World’s Largest Breasts Gets Her Inevitable “My Strange Addiction” Episode

We've long been fascinated by/concerned for Sheyla Hershey, record holder of the world's largest boobs. The 32-year-old Brazilian model carries around size 38KKK mammaries. (Or tried to, anyway. It turns out that carrying a gallon of silicone in your ta-tas is dangerous, which Sheyla learned the hard way when she developed a staff staph…

A Moth Ball Sniffer Is Coming To “My Strange Addiction”

We made our predictions for this season of TLC's "My Strange Addiction." We expected a toenail collector (apparently there is going to be a toenail addict this season) or a vinegar drinker (also, a woman who likes to smell Pine Cleaner ... that's close), but a moth ball snorter? No, we did not anticipate…

“My Strange Addiction” Tops Itself, Seriously

My strange addiction is that I'm addicted to "My Strange Addiction." Each week I promise myself it will be my last time writing about it. And then I see a new episode and the cycle starts all over again. The surge of adrenaline, the utter disbelief, the running to my laptop to blog about…

“My Strange Addiction” Presents A Pillow Addict

  This week on "My Strange Addiction," we met 33-year-old Tamara and her pillow Boo. This pair has history. They've been together since 1982, when she found him at an antique shop, but their connection deepened when she leaned on Boo (literally) as a coping mechanism after being molested. Even though Boo has never…

Calling All Never Nudes

We've seen a couch eater, a toilet paper muncher, a kitchen cleanser licker, and a scab sucker so far on this season of "My Strange Addiction." But TLC is going bigger and better next season. Tobias Funke from "Arrested Development" can't be the only person in the world who refuses to get completely…

This Man Would Literally Rather Eat Glass

On tonight's all-new episode of TLC's "My Strange Addiction," we meet Josh, who is addicted to eating glass. He has a particular affinity for champagne and wine glasses -- classy! In all seriousness, this is one of the more dangerous addictions featured on this show and I certainly hope Josh gets some help. Eating…
