          Hoarding Ultimatum: Your Junk Or Me

          August 08, 2016

          Richard says his six-year marriage to Kelli ended mainly due to Kelli’s obsession with keeping “stuff”! The couple has been divorced for 12 years and is now considering getting re-married, but only, Richard says, if Kelli can stop hoarding once and for all.

          Their new wedding date is quickly approaching and Richard says Kelli has made zero progress to give up her hoarding addiction. Kelli admits she has a problem and says her “valued” possessions range from collectable ceramic shoes, to old newspapers, garbage bags full of receipts, unopened expired boxes of cereal and plastic bags full of plastic bags.

          Richard says Kelli’s hoarding problem is so bad that they can only get into one of their four bedrooms, and Kelli sleeps on one couch and their 14-year-old son sleeps on the other. Their son also says he’s been sleeping on the couch since he was 5 or 6 years old, that he can’t get into his bedroom and that he has never been able to have friends over. Kelli says she hasn’t allowed anyone in her house in over 14 years — except the Dr. Phil show.

          You won’t believe what producers saw and what a professional found when the home was tested for possible mold. Can Dr. Phil help put this family back together again and help Kelli overcome her hoarding habits?
