Reality Show Roundup. Just had to note that in Joy Press's "The Urge To Purge," (which I had somehow missed, because no one told me till now) there is a very good roundup of all the current contenders for reality makeover crown, including an interesting description of a new show, "Life Laundry," in which the host finds super hoarders, living like "Miss Havisham" and confronts them on their problems, emotional and otherwise. There are tears, pain and action. There is also a fairly accurate review of the other shows, such as Clean House, Clean Sweep and my own dear Mission: Organization, in which I am reduced to a bright, but not too shiny, decoratorix from IKEA.
