Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone may be married in real life, but that won’t stop KellyAnn and Laura from imagining a series of “will they/won’t they?” rom-com and action reboots, eventually landing them in Beaver Valley as bitter rivals (who can’t get enough of each other).
KellyAnn and Laura envision a perfect world where Gillian Anderson and Maria Bello star in a popular action blockbuster as love-interests, as well as dropping them into the fictitious ladytopia town of Beaver Valley for some rom-com shenanigans. Our 100% money back guarantee: hilarity and smooches will ensue.

I don’t know what it is lately, but these hoarders and the kids/grandkids who love them have just been choking me up. This week we have a success and a potential backslide. And it’s not who I thought it would be. But, this is mental illness, never forget. It’s a long trudge forward until the walking becomes second nature.
Before we get into this episode, I want to thank all of you who read, link on Reddit, comment on Facebook (and here!), and most especially those of you who get what I’m trying to do, not just with these recaps and discussion posts, but with Hey, Don’t Judge Me. Everyone knows: “You don’t read the comments.” People get nasty and mean, they delight in being rude, cruel or hateful in comment sections, and that just doesn’t happen here.
We’re here to listen and learn, to talk to each other, and often times, whether you, the Reader, know it or not, cheer on the folks this show in particular features. I hear from the hoarders on occasion, and I hear from family members and friends–they all say that they appreciate it. They get encouragement from the thoughtful comments, the worry we share for their safety and health, and I wanted to tell each of you reading this how much I appreciate your support for this website and what it stands for. I don’t get paid to run the place, I do it out of genuine love. So thank you for contributing.

We’re back! (Sorry for the delay–feel free to scowl at me for my move not going smoothly.) This episode featured what Matt Paxton said was one of the most difficult hoards (both size-wise and obstinate-hoarder-wise) of his career. This week seems to focus on usefulness.

We’re back! Thanks for bearing with me last week–I don’t get paid to talk about the shows I love, and there are times when this show hits a little too close to home. That’s when I need to take a breather. But we’re back, and my all-time favorite doctor returns as well. And as Dr. Michael Tompkins explains at one point, “Hoarding is very complicated. There isn’t one thing that contributes to it; it’s many.” Continue reading

I’m not sure how I feel about this season ender. There’s good. There’s bad. It felt disjointed, like a lot of scenes but not a flowing episode. That said, I enjoyed most of it and I’m looking forward to seeing what they pull out for season four. Let’s get started, shall we?
