VIDEO: Hoarders' Clare Is a Staunch Character
On the upcoming Hoarders (Monday, 9/8c, A&E), we're introduced to Clare, an elegant older woman whom one neighbor refers to as "Slumdog Millionaire." See, her house is trashed despite it being gorgeous and outfitted with a pool. (And dig that DeLorean in her driveway!) If this doesn't remind you of Big and Little Edie Beale, you need to watch Grey Gardens again.

Clare's refined mannerisms are distinct and fascinatingly ironic, and the subplot of her son and his girlfriend living out back in a shed is similarly intriguing. They'd make for a fantastic feature-length documentary, too.
