Dead body causes reality TV cancellation

by +Alexa Rankin

The new TLC reality show about hoarders called 'That's My Junk' has been cancelled after just 3 shows after a dead body was found buried in one of the junk filled homes.

The dead body was identified as Thomas Avery, husband of a junk filled home owner Margaret Avery. According to the police report, Margaret Avery claims that her husband left her seven years ago after an argument about her hoarding habit. "He threatened to leave me dozens of times" she said in the report, "and I thought he finally went through with it."

The autopsy revealed that Avery died of asphyxiation under a collapsed pile of boxes and other junk that his wife had hoarded over a period of years. Police suspect that he went into the room for some reason and lost his balance, pulling the boxes down on top of himself. He was unable to get up or call for help and died under a pile of his wife's crap.

Mrs Avery was not available to answer our questions such as;
  • Didn't you smell his decomposing body after a while?
  • Weren't you concerned that he never contacted you?
  • How can one person accumulate so much pointless crap?
The show's production company, ClaireMedia, told us, "We offer our condolences to Mrs. Avery and her family during this tough time. It was a challenging decision for us as to whether to continue with the show or not. We have seen instances of dead mice and rats being uncovered in this type of show. Even a few dead cats turned up in one episode of 'Hoarders: Buried Alive'. We had an opportunity to trump that and go down in Reality TV history, but Mrs. Avery's attorney stopped us from airing the show."

It looks like Reality TV can get a little too real sometimes.

Oh, dear. He almost walks out on her and they aren't going to investigate this as a murder? Don't hold your breath. She got tired of him giving her the silent treatment. I could go on about all the possible reasons why she might have killed him until I was blue in the face, but I think you get the picture.

She got him all choked up. He disappeared right out of thin air.

He was buried in crap, fercrissakes. Literally.

Static said...

Her disorder crushed him.

Too soon?

LOL. Okay, I'm done.

The authorities did not see this incident as suspicious so there is no murder investigation.
