  1. Freak Show

    February 17, 2013 by C.

    I just want to say I am so mad at all of you that encouraged me to try to get on the show, “My Strange Addiction” after the producers approached me to appear on the show with my ketchup addiction.  *click the link to read all about my problem in case you missed it*

    Last night I just happened to have a few episodes of the new season on the DVR so I thought I would watch. The first episode was so disgusting I deleted it right after the preview. A woman who licks her cats. Seriously, gives her damn cats a bath WITH HER TONGUE ! I was gagging thinking about it so I had to move on to the next episode.

    The next episode is of Mark and his blow up pool float addiction. Yea, you heard me. He is making out with a blow up whale and is totally in love with a blow up dragon. He talks to them, people. My eyeballs were popping out of my head watching this fruitcake in action. I wanted to stop watching it but I couldn’t. I am not sure what that says about me exactly but I am sure it’s not a good thing.

    So, I am sharing a small part of Mark’s episode so you all can see what you almost got me into. They would have had me making out and God only knows what else, with a Heinz ketchup bottle on national television.

    Y’all are on my shit list for real. Just watch this lunatic in action. When you see him with a pool toy, imagine me with my ketchup bottle.

  2. No TLC For Me

    October 23, 2012 by C.


    I shared last month that a representative from TLC approached me for being on a show about weird eating habits (my ketchup addiction). Everyone has been asking for an update on this. The update is they have not called.

    Am I upset by this? No. My response to the e-mail could be why they have not called. I located it in my sent items and thought I would share it. She has not called nor sent me the recipe I requested. Geez.

    While I think it is cool you have somehow found my blog post about my love of ketchup, I feel I am not the person to be on your show. I am a big fan of the addiction shows you have on your channel and I have seen the majority of the episodes. I do not feel my love of ketchup has any comparison to a man who has a sexual relationship with his car. Nor does it compare to a person that chews on glass, foam or toilet paper.  I mean, really??

    I suppose I could make it pretty freaky for the almighty dollar (baths in ketchup, a baby bottle full of ketchup I carry around with me so I can get a quick fix or sleeping with the bottles) but I cannot be bought (unless you are talking Honey Boo Boo money). If you ever need a writer for your shows, please give me a call.

    If you still want to discuss this, work would probably be the easiest way to reach me…I am here Monday-Friday 8am-5pm central time. 417-xxx-xxxx.



    P.S. Could you e-mail me Mama June’s ketchup sketti recipe? That shit sounds good!

  3. Ketchup and Honey Boo Boo

    September 28, 2012 by C.

    Watch out Honey Boo Boo!




    This week I checked the email account for this blog and found I was sent a request a week earlier to speak to a casting agent from TLC. She had read my blog post about my ketchup addiction and would like to speak to me about the possibility of appearing on a show about weird food addictions.

    My first thought was it was some sort of joke. So I did a little research on the company she said she was with and sure enough…it is a casting agency that does most of the shows on TLC.

    I emailed her back and told her I felt certain that I was not addicted enough to qualify to be on “My Strange Addiction” but to feel free to call me and discuss.

    At first I just laughed about this. Pretty comical. I write every single day of the week after working a full-time job and instead of my writing being noticed, I get an email about being on a show for freaks. So now, I am a bit depressed about it. I have decided there is no way I will do the show if they offer it to me, unless of course they are willing to pay me a substantial amount of money. That is highly doubtful though, as Honey Boo Boo only gets $4000 per episode. I need at least $10,000 to make an ass of myself on television.

    The positive that has come from this is it made me realize that anyone could be reading what I write…an editor at a magazine or publishing company, comedy websites or even someone from Saturday Night Live looking for a new writer. It was a nice reminder that more people read this than just my Mom. So I have hope again.

    I will update everyone again if I get a call back any time soon. I could be the next Honey Boo Boo y’all!
