girl-with-pica-eats-sponges-and-soap

Oh man. TLC is going to be on this like white on rice!

Get ready! This girl is totally en route to My Strange Addiction!

Kerry Trebilcock is a 21 year old from Cornwall who, after contracting a hookworm while vacationing in Morocco, developed pica, which causes its victims to crave objects that are not food…and due to the condition, has left her eating up to 4,000 sponges and 100 bars of soap!

And although she had the parasite taken care of by her doctor, she was afraid to mention her bizarre eating habits, so she let them continue, which has led to serious stomach cramps, constipation, and diarrhea!

Could General Hospital Live On…In Primetime???

Filed under: TV News

general hospital may live on

Ya hear that, GH fans? There isn't LOTS of hope…but there's still some!

Last week, ABC's president announced that the network hadn't made a decision yet about whether or not they'll be cancelling General Hospital.

Now, ABC's entertainment chief Paul Lee has confirmed that the network is considering the possibility of airing GH "as an evening summer series."

Intriguing idea! We have a feeling there are TONS of fans out there who would give anything for their favorite soap to live on!

What do U think? Should they continue GH as a primetime show???

Fran Drescher Shares The Disturbing Dangers Of Antibacterial Soap

FitPerez reader Lauren has been using antibacterial soap her whole life, but heard it may not be as healthy as it sounds. For advice she wrote cancer survivor Fran Drescher, asking:

Hi Fran,

I’ve always made sure to buy antibacterial soap for my home to keep my family healthy but now I’m hearing antibacterial soaps can do more harm than good? What’s the deal with antibacterial soap?

According to Fran:

Hi Lauren,

Most antibacterial soaps contain an ingredient called Triclosan, which has been linked to cancer, thyroid disruption, skin irritation, liver and inhalation toxicity and antibiotic-resistant “superbugs”. Pretty scary stuff when you think about it. Triclosan can also be listed in the ingredients as Irgasan, Triclocarban, Biofresh, Ster-zac, Microban and Cloxifenolum. Check your products and see if it contains this chemical and to play it safe, just use plain ol’ soap and water.

Hilton Hotels To Donate Used Soap To Charity

Filed under: Business BlitzCharity

Soap Charity

We'll be honest. When we first read the headline of this story we though Paris Hilton was going to auction off her used soap to perverts for charity.

But, as it turns out, the next time you stay in a Hilton Hotel the soap that you don't use up is going to be donated and recycled and sent to impoverished countries to help out!

In the first year alone they're expected to send out 1 million new 4-ounce bars of soap — so just think if ALL hotels did this, not just Hiltons. Incredible.

But that's not just it, over the next three years the hotel chain will also throw in $1.3 million in donations.

For all of you who think that's gross, the soap is sanitized, melted down, and then reshaped before being sent out.

Such a fab thing to do! Apparently it's been going on for a while in lesser known hotels, but we're glad some of the larger ones are getting on board!

Soap Star John Driscoll Gets Restraining Order After Fan Says He Fathered Her Baby

john-driscoll-gets-restraining-order-from-fan.jpg

WTF?! This is like a real life soap opera!

John Driscoll of the Young and Restless has received a restraining order from a fan who claimed that he fathered her baby!

Driscoll says that the fan began telling people that she had multiple sexual encounters with him and when the rumors spiraled out of control, he was fearful that it could ruin his relationship with his fiance.

To prove that he was not with the woman and that he did NOT father her baby, he got a paternity test. He says:

"To silence these rumors, to gain credit back from both colleagues and family, I willingly took and paid for the lab testing on a paternity test which knowingly came back negative with a 0% match."

He says that the woman is "clearly not rational" and worries that she might do something to him and/or his fiance. He's asked a judge for a restraining order that will keep her 500 yards away from him AND he wants her to pay him back the $119 for the paternity test.

Unfortunately, John did not show up to court on Sept. 13 so the judge tossed out his petition for the restraining order.

Ummm, that wasn't smart.

Kate Moss Has Soapy Aspirations

Filed under: Kate Moss

kate-moss-wants-to-make-own-line-of-soaps.jpg

First jam, now this.

Supermodel Kate Moss is said to be working on a line of soaps.

A soapy source told The Sun:

"Kate loves her new hobby, she's gone soap mad. She's been trying to master the art after one of mates sent her a batch of home-made bars, which she loved. She's adamant all the ingredients should be fresh and natural. She's sent quite a few to her girlfriends to try out. Depending on the feedback, she's thinking of releasing a range."

Stranger things have happened.
