Season 9 Episode 22
After Janelle broke up with her son Joshua's dad a little over a year ago, Janelle and Joshua moved back in with her mother Joy. Joy, a self-confessed neat freak, has always held herself responsible for keeping her home tidy. Janelle, on the other hand, has always been messy and too lazy to clean. Janelle can't say no to her friends' hand-me-downs and keeps everything because Joshua might need it someday. The clutter is causing heated arguments--Joy is furious and frustrated and ends up secluding herself in her clean bedroom, while the clutter makes Janelle feel like a child, irresponsible and useless. If the clutter continues, Janelle is worried her mom will get fed up and eventually ask her and Joshua to leave. Can Tempestt and the "Clean House" dream team come up with a strategy to get these two to cohabitate in peace?
