Rich People Can Be Hoarders

| March 26, 2012

Yes, Jeff Lewis, rich people can be hoarders. In the commercial for designer Jeff Lewis’ new show Interior Therapy, the home of a wealthy couple shows a pile of stuff in a room, and Jeff asks the question: “Can rich people be hoarders? I don’t know.” I found myself answering the television, “Yes, they can.” Hoarding is a mental illness, and it doesn’t matter how much money is in your bank account, where you live, what education you have, what job you have, or your gender and race.
