TLC’S HIT SERIES “MY STRANGE ADDICTION” BREWS A FOURTH SEASON OF NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN DEPENDENCIES, STARTING WITH COFFEE ENEMAS
–Series premieres Wednesday, February 13 at 10 PM ET/PT —
(New York, NY) – TLC steps back into the world of the bizarre and unfamiliar with the premiere of MY STRANGE ADDICTION on Wednesday, February 13 at 10 PM ET/PT. Pulling back the curtain to peculiar lifestyles and addictions, the series’ fourth season will continue to explore a range of shocking behaviors, their origins and potential life-saving cures through eight half-hour episodes.
In the premiere, viewers will be introduced to Mike and Trina, a couple addicted to coffee enemas. Despite warnings from gastroenterologists, Mike and Trina rely heavily on this daily fix of caffeine, spending hours in the bathroom to achieve the clean sensation and energy they constantly crave.
We will also meet Lisa, a middle-aged woman from Detroit, who is addicted to eating cat fur. Lisa, who claims that chewing and swallowing the hair is comfortable and relaxing, will go to the source itself, grooming the cat with her own tongue as if she were its mother.
Other featured addictions this season: a young woman addicted to eating deodorant, a man who maintains intimate relationships with pool toy inflatables, a young mother addicted to butt injections, a woman addicted to bee stings, and a woman so addicted to vapor rub that she goes through more than 30 jars, inhalers and patches every week. The season culminates with a woman addicted to drinking blood.
MY STRANGE ADDICTION is produced for TLC by 20 West Productions.
