The trailer for VH1’s forthcoming TLC biopic, “CrazySexyCool,” has hit the internet, and it looks pretty damn good.

“My Crazy Obsession” Finally Managed To Freak Me Out With A Crazy Troll Lady

“My wife’s routine starts first thing in the morning when she wakes up, scrolling online looking for trolls,” say the husband of Michelle Kerrins, featured on the latest episode of “My Crazy Obsession.”

Just A Man And His $25,000 Mustard Collection

Will I ever tire of “My Crazy Obsession” and the special individuals they feature? Answer: NO. This week’s episode features Barry Levinson, whose obsession with mustard started 26 years ago when he was shopping at an all-night grocery store and heard “a voice” tell him to collect mustard.

Sugar Bush The Squirrel Is One Spoiled Princess

“You have to have a reason to get up in the morning and a reason to go to bed at night,” says Kelly Foxton. And Foxton’s reason is Sugar Bush, a pet sugar bush squirrel who demands 12 hours a day of her attention. As we see here on a clip from TLC’s masterpiece “My…

“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

Watch This Woman Huff A Rat

OK. I’m not a super judgmental person, but it’s not normal to like rats more than people. Chantale, featured on Season 2 of “My Crazy Obsession” is wild about her 19 pet rats. She “huffs” them, meaning “deeply inhales their scents. She says they smell like “nachos.” (Just vomited in my mouth.)
Chantale should be…

“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,…

Oh, heeyyy. What’s that? TLC has a new amazing show coming down the pipelines? Oh, yes they do. The channel whose womb I want to crawl into, is bringing us “Plastic Wives,” a series about the wives of some of the most high profile surgeons in Beverly Hills.

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: A Mega Multi-Meal Thanksgiving

This episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo” made me realize that I’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving wrong all these years. I’ve never made a Junecrow to scare the gnats away or ate Billy Bob mega multi-meal style or worn a fuzzy turkey hat or used the wishbone as a toothpick. What have I been doing with…

Gather ’round children and let me tell you a ghost story that will scare the ooo out of you. It’s about the Fart Ghost — a ghost that you smell before it scares you and it likes scaring people really bad. Sometimes the Fart Ghost farts … mayonnaise. BWAHAHAHAHA!

I’m Kind Of Obsessed With Knowing Everything About “Wives With Beehives”

Oh, feminism, what a tangled web you weave! How could I have missed “Wives With Beehives,” a program that aired last Thursday night on TLC (of course), about couples who purposefully live a 1950s lifestyle? The husbands go off to work, carrying their lunch in a pail, natch, while the wives stay at their kitsch-ed…

Happy HOLLAdays from Alana and the gang at “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Guess what Sugar Claus wants to stuff in your stocking? A special HOLLAday nickname!

“Extreme Cougar Wives” … TLC Is Going There

Nobody does extreme quite like TLC. They are leaving behind toilet paper eaters and polygamous couples for the moment, and delving into the world of extreme cougars and the men who love them.
In this instance, the adjective “extreme” when used in conjunction with the word “cougar” means that there is a 20-year or larger…

“Long Island Medium” Channels Legendary Skater Harold Hunter

Well, this is weird: “Long Island Medium” Theresa Caputo wandered into a New York City skate shop on last night’s episode and channeled skateboarding legend — and “Kids” star — Harold Hunter. Hunter, a controversial figure in the downtown scene (who died in 2006), supposedly wanted to let the dudes in Wampum Skate Shop know…

Finally, An Answer About “Abby & Brittany”‘s Sex Life!

A shout out to RoyalEagle0408 who sent me this Atlantic article, The Sex Lives of Conjoined Twins, which endeavors to answer some of the questions the TLC show “Abby & Brittany” failed to touch upon. In a British documentary about conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel twins, which aired a couple of years back, there…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: All Aboard The Biscuit Express

The good news is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has been picked up for another season! WOOT! And the bad news is … well, you know the bad news. The season is over and now I have nothing to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I’m almost too sad to write about the “Here Come…

Watch A Sneak Peek Of TLC’s Crime Documentary, “Half-Ton Killer?”

We need to talk about the upcoming TLC documentary, “Half-Ton Killer.” If you’ve seen TLC’s other “Half-Ton” docs (“Half-Ton Mom,” “Half-Ton Teen,” etc.), this is a different beast. Yes, Mayra Rosales does weigh a half-ton. Actually she weighs 1,100 pounds and is considered one of the heaviest women in the world. But this is not…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Put Your Bingo Face On

I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode,…
