not quite sure    

Who's not in a psych ward lately? Must be fashionable, or just to get your name out there. She hasn't done anything noteworthy in years, but now on the bandwagon with the rest of them. Why, oh why else would you not want to keep this type of personal thing under wraps?

I feel bad for her, but if you guys think an interview with Delta Burke about hoarding is an incentive to watch your crappy show, think again.

although delta burke is not known in the uk isnt she part of a well known acting and singing family of 3 sisters?. am not sure but isnt she related to an actress called ashley something or the other.. anyway, what is up with celebrity land ?. this yr so far we have had 2 young actors dead, 1 singer in the looney bin, another actor checking in and out of the looney bin , countless rehab admissions , over here we have amy whinehouse , paris hilton flogging everything that isnt nailed to the floor. now delta is getting some action by admitting herself in for compulsive hoarding behaviour.!! you begin to realise that its all smoke and mirrors this dream of perfection that hollywood sells as far as the artists are concerned..we expect far too much of these people.. expect them to be perfect when they are just human.. having lots of money and a team of pr people cant save you from your demons when they knock on your door.

Oh please, pack ratting!? You should see my garage. Americans have long been hoarders. We don't throw anything anyway for fear it will be the hot item to have in the future for Nostalgia($$$) I have a friend that built a small garage to hold their MatchBox Car Collection. Now tell me she bought a house to store stuff in or owns her own U-Store-It and I'll think she has a problem. Till then, she just doesn't like to waste. But don't throw your stuff away Delta, donate it or give it to me. I'll sell it, donate it or throw it away and who knows if I like something well enough, maybey I'l add it to my own "Collections".

We sit back and think how great it would be to be rich and famous, not. These people tell all we really want to know about fame and fortune. I love being middle-class and can something, but there's somethings I can't do and that's fine with me. Delta Burke inthe psych ward doesn't surprise me at all. Psych wards the new rehabs!!
