The third season of TLC’s “Strange Sex” is back this Sunday and will include a segment about a man with a breastfeeding fetish. Yep. Jeff is sexually aroused by getting his wife Michelle pregnant and drinking her breast milk. He has been “feeding” off of her for the last year-and-a-half and claims that milk straight from the source cured his erectile dysfunction. (Wait. What!?)
“The first time I breast fed from Michelle, I just latched on and the milk started flowing and it was just such a huge turn on that I had to stop because I would have just finished right then and there,” Jeff confesses. Keep reading »
Put a flipper in her and call her a reality star, because “Toddlers & Tiaras’” Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo Child) is getting her own show. Ms. Alana’s spinoff — working title “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” — will be coming to TLC late this summer and will follow Alana in her pageant pursuits and her day-to-day life in rural Georgia doing normal things like picking up roadkill for the family cookout. Best part: The show will also feature family members like belching mom, June Shannon, chalk-mining dad, Sugar Bear, and sisters Lauryn “Pumpkin,” Jessica “Chubbs,” and Anna “Chickadee.” OMG yessssss, please! Congrats to our little tummy-squeezing, dollar-hollering, Go-Go juice guzzling spirit animal muse ! There are various celebrations going on here in the Frisky office. I am playing with my stomach fat as we speak. But dare I say it? What about Makenzie? [Us Weekly]
As someone who is some small percentage Gypsy (my mother swears we’re Russian from the Caucaucus mountains), I’m more than a little bit fascinated by Gypsy culture. I’ve watched the UK version of “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and have been blown away by the elaborate wedding ceremonies Gypsy families participate in, passing off their often very young daughters into marriage. Gypsy communities seem to be tightly knit and in some ways highly traditional (despite the short skirts that many of the young women wear to their friend’s weddings, Gypsy girls are expected to remain very, very chaste until marriage.)
Gypsies aren’t just a European phenomenon, either. A new TLC series documents the similar Gypsy culture in the U.S. — a people who also fight against immense prejudice and stereotypes, who love fiercely and who really seem to love a big, froofry, extravagant wedding dress. Check out the American version of “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” on Sunday nights at 10 pm EST, and check out some of the girl’s wild dresses here.
Tupac isn’t the only artist experiencing a resurrection: Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes will appear with her TLC bandmates in an upcoming reunion tour, despite the fact that she died 10 years ago, the group’s rep tells TMZ. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas are currently planning the tour, which will take place this year in the US. Lopes’ vocals will be incorporated into the live show, and her image will be projected onto a large screen. Read more…
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 others … absolutely compelling. So many odd obsessions, so little time. What are the chances they’ll start airing the show ’round the clock? Maybe they could feature Scarlett Johansson next season. Now that she’s off her strict “Avengers” diet, she’s going buck wild … with buffalo wings. “Oh my good [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings, I am addicted to them … You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me … I can’t stop eating them, I just can’t get enough.” That sounds like the makings of a great “My Strange Addiction” episode. I’m picturing ScarJo making covert excursions to sports bars and eating her wings secretly in the parking lot. Keep on clicking to see other celebs’ strange addictions. [Celebitchy]
Last night, TLC’s “My Crazy Obsession” took us inside Stanley’s world. It’s a world of diapers, baby powder, onsies, pacifiers and bottles. The 31-year-old is proud to to call himself an adult baby for the last 18 years. He gets satisfaction from acting like a toddler up to eight hours a day and says, “It’s not sexual.” Although there are people who do baby role playing in a sexual way, Stanley’s more into crib toys than sex toys. Sadly, he says this obsession stems from an abusive childhood, and the adult baby role play helps him feel the safety he didn’t feel as a child. Much like the urine drinker on “My Strange Addiction,” it felt vaguely exploitative to watch Stanley get burped and swaddled. I felt almost too uncomfortable to watch. I hope in addition to seeking an “adult baby mommy” that he’ll find the help he needs to feel safe and cared for in the world. Like, without giant diapers.
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 does this woman get anything done? And then there’s Carrie, a cancer-stricken woman who believes that drinking her own urine — and bathing in it, and using it as a beauty treatment, and brushing her teeth with it — is the key to curing her disease. Both were featured on “My Strange Addiction,” and both had, we’ll say, “problems.” So which is the stranger strange addiction?

- Ayanna's extra long toenails cross the crazy line! (12%, 70 Votes)

TLC just took its bizarre reality programming to the next level with “My Crazy Obsession,” which premieres next Wednesday. Straight out of the gate, we’ll meet Pat and Joe Prosey who are obsessed with spoiling their Cabbage Patch Kids rotten. How does one spoil a doll you ask? Here’s how: They build elaborate amusement parks for them in their backyard, complete with swing sets, motorized trains and hot air balloons. In addition, they set up play dates with other Cabbage Patch Kids, whose parents are also “collectors.” These kids have come a long way from the humble patch they were born in, from the fear of being enslaved by Lavender McDade or eaten alive by Cabbage Jack. I’ll bet they really appreciate the life of privilege that their adoptive parents, the Proseys, have afforded them. I know I’ll appreciate watching their life. This show may in fact be the best thing that has ever happened to me. My sincere thanks, TLC. [Zap 2 It]
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 that. On this Sunday’s episode we are going to meet Alicia, a 45-year-old hairdresser who lives in Atlanta.
“I love the smell [of moth balls] … I find it irresistible and it’s hard for me to stay away from it for long periods of time … I always keep a stash somewhere so I can get a smell … I am so dependent, I can’t go more than an hour without the scent … I’ll just have to quit cold turkey and keep them away from my children,” she said of her ball habit.
I know, you’re thinking, What’s the harm in letter her sniff her moth balls? Well, they contain toxic chemicals, which can affect one’s health when sniffed in excess. WOW. [ONTD]
The new season of TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” is about to start, and while we’ve already been tipped off that this round will feature a woman who is addicted to eating cat food, we can’t imagine what other weird people with odd habits the show’s dug up. Remember Amelia’s boyfriend, hair drain guy? Or the woman whose frighteningly long nails made it nearly impossible for her to wipe her own butt?
To make your own viewing of “My Strange Addiction” more enjoyable, we’ve created this handy bingo card, with 16 possible addiction topics we think the show might feature. How to play: Print this card out. Every time we manage to hit the weird mark on the head, cross an addiction off the card. If we (or you) get the addictions in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row, you win! (What, we’re not sure, because you’ve just watched, like, 10 episodes of “My Strange Addiction,” which sounds really depressing.)
Enjoy! (New episodes air February 12).
