My Strange Addiction

TLC (Discovery Channel) are doing a series on people and their odd addictions.  There are the ones you would suspect if your mind is weird enough like mine, ao feel free to pop over and watch some episodes.

But this one really got me.  Mattress eating.


Another star of the upcoming series is 26-year-old Jennifer, who has been addicted to eating mattresses for more than twenty years.

She estimates that she has consumed a total of eight beds since her addiction began.

The show will follow Jennifer’s life, as well as her family’s concern that her mattress diet may be harming her health.

Call me insensitive (go on!), but I don’t think the mattress part of Jennifer’s diet is the problem

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
