Bugged Out VH1 Star -- I Had to Bomb My Own House

8/14/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

VH1 star Kerry "Egg-in-the-Leg" Schwartz filled her whole house with toxic gas yesterday -- all in the hopes of murdering every bug in sight ... especially the ones that burrow into people's skin and lay eggs.

Schwartz -- who recently underwent surgery to remove insect eggs from deep inside her leg -- tells TMZ, she paid $1,000 to have her whole place bug bombed by a local company ... and according to her, every last inch of her house got the full pesticide treatment.

If that weren't bad enough -- the "Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair" winner claims she also had to dump her mattresses, pillows and sheets in the trash ... basically anything that could potentially harbor skin-burrowing creepy crawlies.

Schwartz -- who has to check in with her doctor again in the next few days -- says she's "trying to stay positive."

And they say there is no such thing as bad press. Getting your first major national exposure for bugs having laid eggs in your leg is... generally speaking; an instant guarantee that we will never see you in the media again. Sayonara bug-girl...

They must know what insect did it if they removed the eggs.

There are some flies that lay eggs in living human skin, they're common in some tropical regions and sometimes travelers come back with them without knowing it until the little critters start causing trouble. It's pretty painful for the victim. Most go after dead bodies, though.

It's a bot fly (google it)...and they are extremely rare in the US..you get them from traveling to South America. The bot fly will lay eggs on a mosquito, then when the mosquito bites you, the larva crawl in the bite. The dumb chick is "bombing" he house..well, it didn't come from her house. Why isn't anyone making this clear?? Idiots!

Why does this idiot almost seem to be bragging about it? I'd be disgusted and embarrassed.
