Lindsay Lohan admits hoarding tendencies

If A&E ever did a show about celebrity hoarders, Lindsay Lohan could surely be on the first episode.

"The Insider's" Niecy Nash, who also hosts the Style Network's "Clean House," paid a visit to Lohan's home and it appears that Lohan indeed has a problem.

"I'm here because I heard you've got a whole lot of mayhem and a whole lot of foolishness," Nash said.

Lohan told Nash, "I have a lot of clothing - I think that's the biggest problem; I have a lot of stuff."

Nash asked Lohan to reveal her "stuff," and that's when the scary music began as the camera panned to show boxes upon boxes upon boxes of shoes, rack after rack of dresses, and then more clothes collected in piles and boxes on the floor.

The actress/fashion designer/leggings aficionado has not one, but two rooms full of shoe boxes and piles of clothing. At least she's meticulous about the shoe store she's recreated in her home: each shoe box is labeled with a photo of its contents.

"I try not to come in here - that's how bad it is. I only...need shoes," Lohan said. "The craziest thing is that I know every single thing that I have." Yet when Nash tested Lohan's "photographic memory," she claimed she simply hadn't gone through that box of clothes yet.

Lohan blames the hoarding on her constant jet-setting.

"It's hard because when you are traveling you pack one suitcase and you don't realize if you are getting new things or you forget what you have," she said. "So, I think that has kind of been the biggest issue."

Nash, however, doesn't believe Lohan is a hoarder and can see potential for Lohan to clean up her act. Her home, Nash said, simply reflects her life: "chaotic, disorganized and in excess of everything crowding her world."

    We owns a hoarding cleanup and have cleaned out houses filled with clothes... having a lot of stuff does not necessarily classify one as a hoarder. If Lindsay ever needs a cleanup company we're available http://www.cendecon.com 😉

    So now we know she is a pig as well as where all her money went, cloths and drugs/booze. You just are a disrespectful little brat and spends money on really unessisary things when people are fighting to survive for a place to live and food on the table, you discust me and in the story you claim you know everything you have and in the next breath you say when your traveling and you don't know what you have or forget what you have, your a pathetic human and don't deserve money and i'd be willing to bet you have an std.

    I like Lindsay. People get too caught up in her situations, and all but I see a young girl trying to find her way in a mean world. Everybody likes to judge, and assume everything in the tabloids must be the gospel. Yeah shes from a disfunctional family, but they do love each other. I live my life and intend to let lindsay live hers. People who get all into the mix simply have no life of their own, or they wouldn't even care.

    I cant understand why she wont donate some of her stuff to people who REALLY NEED IT. There are hundreds of kids and teens in poverty right now that can only dream of having just one clean pair of shoes and a clean shirt and pants. This woman has the nerves to boast about having TOO MUCH clothes???? Are you kidding me? I think this is disgraceful.

    Thats right she does have a charity doesnt she? Is it for popularity PR or is she sincere about her charity? Unbelieveable. Thousands of kids suffer each day and she gets interviewed for having TOO MUCH clothes and shoes.....Sad

    She needs to take whatever money she has left and leave Hollywood. Go clean herself out and find a nice, normal life away from the spotlight. Then maybe, just maybe she will have a chance. Otherwise she is headed down a dangerous path.

    Sometimes I actually feel sorry for her. She is so misguided and just plain lost. Her mother acts more like her best friend than a mother, setting boundaries, etc. (Yes, I realize that Lindsey is now an adult; I'm referring to her teen years) Her father is a mess.

    You done got yourself a crack addict in my opinion. She is aging so quickly, but is still very young. If it ain't crack it's something else. Drugs are bringing her down. Just my opinion though.

    The Dr. Drew rehab guy is the guy who should be "admonishing" Lindsay Lohan. The too much clothing/shoes thing is very minor compared to her other issues. She was a beautiful girl who no one wants anymore–she knows this and she keeps throwing things at the wall hoping something–anything will stick. I do give her credit for her psuedo "honesty" here–I hope it is a first step to really addressing her self destruction. Too thin, living on drugs, cigarettes and red bull. She'll see Brittany Murphy in the other world unless she somehow turns it around.

    Why are we even talking about her? She has not had a new gig out in years. She should be forgotten until she comes back and does something remarkable. She is a sick little girl who needs her daddy's attention. Let her keep all the stuff, that is all she has in this world! And she knows it.

    Wow. A lot of judgment here. A lot of 'give your money to charity'.
    I think I would find a psych eval on you posters a bit scarier than one on Lohan. Unless, of course, you are perfect.
    I also wonder how many of you haven't finished school, cheated on a significant other, or talked trash about someone you don't know.

    I guess that makes us all dirt-bags.

    and she has some tabloid-vulture coming into her home and basically making fun of ONE here of her many mental issues and she's more than a willing participant?
    poor thing is one of those "I dont care what you call me, as long as you call me" attention sluts who's different from every other escaped mental patient you see wandering urban streets and bridge underpasses all because when somebody with a camera says "action" she can pretent she's someone else for a few hours?
    i've never even seen her act in anything where she more than about 4th or 5th banana and even then shes instantly forgettable..
    people who follow these folks dont want to think they're part of the problem when paying attention to a mentally-ill, poorly parented and disciplined child who needs lots medication and intensive in-patient therapy and her tabloid vulture frenemy in an overpriced apartment, but they are.
    i'll just be happy rubber-necking at car accidents especially if there's blood for my cheap thrills.....not.

Perhaps you have something in your closet to run down to the Salval? Let's worry about our own lives. I know that's extremely HARD to do... but just TRY! And remember – media runs people... people don't run media.

    hey, why can't she just sell the stuff and keep the cash? Why does everyone think that actors and the like HAVE to give to charity. Did you earn the money? No. Definitely needs the old fung shui going.
