My first feeling after I watched this video was that this had to be another "scripted" and "staged" reality show. I just couldn't believe that someone who is seemingly bilingual and who is eloquent can be living in this kind of condition in the wealthiest country in the world. But then after reading more on the story reported on various newspapers, I found out that this was the actual reality. Oh my god!!!! I wish I could watch the whole episode. I read that the investors who bought this home at a foreclosure had sold the home back to this lady and had allegedly helped her clear out this mess. At least she lives in a stand alone house and she has no neighbor living real close to her. I can't imagine having someone like that living next door to me in my apartment building. This kind of hoarding is not just every landlord's nightmare, but every apartment or condo renter's nightmare. I will die of heart attack if I have to share a common wall with someone like this lady. Just the thought of having rats and roaches crawling in from a next door neighbor like this is more scary than the thought of having Freddie coming to my doors from Elm Street.
I'm now even more determined than ever to get rid of the junks in my kitchen!!
