There's a new show on TLC called Extreme Cheapskates, and it's all about people who love to save.
Like really realllllllly love to save.
Like to the point where it's actually becoming such a problem, it'll make good TV. LOLz!
The show, like many other TLC shows, follows seemingly ordinary people, who have some very unique quirks…

Like the woman who uses her hair instead of dental floss to save money. Gross. Or the person who freezes their chewing gum and constantly reuses it. Double gross. Or the man who literally freezes his credit card in a block of ice. Weird.
Some of these people seem like they actually might need to seek counseling…
Check out the video (below) to see an example of a truly extreme cheapskate!

Pope Francis has a lot of progressive opinions on things that you might think a pope would normally be strict with.
Like breastfeeding in the Sistine Chapel, or blessing a porn star’s parrot.
Heck, he even told church leaders not to alienate children of same-sex couples!
Well now his awesome streak is finally over… he's come out against marijuana legalization.

Sometimes it seems like the Johnny Weir/Victor Voronov divorce drama is never-ending.
Remember when we said it was finally all over and they were back together??
Well that was true… but only for a little while.
It wasn't long until there was another "altercation" as we previously mentioned. Johnny allegedly scratched Victor all over after finding some not-so-nice texts Victor had sent.

It’s for constructive reasons though.
Riley Cooper is taking a break from the Philadelphia Eagles, despite the beginning of preseason being around the corner, because he angrily blurted out a racial slur.

Diff'rent Strokes star Todd Bridges has his life back on track, and now he’s working to make sure others don’t follow in his footsteps.
Todd used to be addicted to crack, and has been relaying his experiences getting help from counselors to students at ICDC College in Van Nuys, CA.
Said a rep for Todd:
"He is excited to work with ICDC and is looking forward to helping out as much as he can wherever he may be."
There’s no better way to get across the message about the dangers of addiction than with personal accounts of what can happen!
Such an inspiration.

It's about time!
That old saying "you get out what you put in" really applies when it comes to going to rehab. Over the years, we've seen what taking the experience seriously has done for people and what it's done for people who don't.
That's why we're thrilled to hear that Lindsay Lohan is reportedly taking this latest stint at the Betty Ford Clinic very seriously and has been taking a lot away from her counseling sessions. A source reveals that Lindsay is “taking the counseling seriously though and knows that she is in a place where she is getting help for her problems.”
Wonderful news! Though we know she faces a different set of challenges while being in rehab (you can't be an actress if you can't be on set), we really want her to try and let the career rest on the back burner for awhile and focus on her health.
She's so young, she has all the time in the world to have a career. She needs to make herself better now!
Keep going, bb! We're proud of ya!
