Feeling badly about that pile of unwashed laundry in the corner? Never fear! Just watch this clip from the season debut of “Hoarding: Buried Alive” (Wed. Feb. 13 at 9:00 p.m., TLC) and you will instantly feel a lot better about your housekeeping skills while still feeling awfully depressed about the hoarder du jour, Karen.
New Jersey resident Karen is a mother who is not only struggling to save her house, but also keep her children. With the help of not only a licensed psychologist but also a hauling team leader who recruits the help of the local community, Karen starts to chip away at the problem that began following the devastating losses of two husbands and a child. Tasked with almost the impossible of cleaning years of hoarding within a 48 hour window, this family must meet the strict requirements of Child Protective Services in order to keep Karen’s teen boys out of foster care.
See? I told you that little pile of laundry didn’t look so bad!
