The 11th, ongoing iteration of ‘Hoarders’ has proved to be one of the most emotional outings ever! But the worse part is, the episodes have showcased some of the extremely severe cases of hoarding. We may believe that hoarding points to simply storing up on things one is attached to. But at times, this habit needs serious reconsideration. When hoarded knick-knacks clash with legal and code restrictions, things get complicated. The accused faces the risk of serving time in the jail and attending repeated court hearings. This can also lead to loss of property and housing. Everything can culminate in bankruptcy and a decline in the quality of one’s lifestyle.
With new episodes currently airing every Monday night – at 8 p.m. ET or 7 p.m. CT on A&E – the most recent part of ‘Hoarders’, episode 7, titled ‘Cindy’, is standing proof of the above-mentioned consequences and risks. Cindy’s history with hoarding has reached a point where she clashes with the law! In fact, she risks losing it all. And here is everything we know about this featured star from the series.
Cindy Believes That Hoarding is a Form of Therapy
To give a bit of a background, Cindy has been making repeated appearances in court for quite a while now. She is involved in a long, legal case with code enforcement. If Cindy does not deal with her hoarding tendencies now, she risks the chance of losing her son’s property and her storefront, alongside everything else.
Cindy’s hoarding habit birthed to help her cope with her tragic past. And she believes that piling up on things is a kind of therapy. She has been dealing with pent-up pain and emotions for years now. As one of her friends explains: the more stuff Cindy has around her, the better off she feels. Even her son says how the junk that has gathered around the property is holding him back from moving forward in life. In short, years of stockpiling has put Cindy’s life in jeopardy.
