    ‘Friday Night Lights’ author in rehab for shopping

    An excerpt:
    ...my name is Buzz Bissinger and I am a shopaholic. In a personal essay Bissinger details a shopping and fashion addiction that costs $587,000 since 2010. Bissinger tallies some of his most expensive items: a $22,000 Gucci lambswool coat, an ostrich skin jacket that cost him almost $14,000, and $5,600 leather pants.​

    I wonder if he is a member here.

    The article is in this month's GQ, and trust me, from the photos, there is no way that Buzz Bissinger is Spoo - the author is an overweight 58-year-old with a taste for the more extreme products from the house of Gucci (there are a few photos - a "before" his shopping addiction, and an "after" - in the "after" photo, he looks ridiculous - Spoo never looks ridiculous - well, at least not fat and ridiculous :satisfied:).

    Taste aside, I bet there is more than one member here who exhibits this type of addictive behavior. :embar:

    Hahaha, of course space is the one thing that really is expensive in our current economy. How do these people afford the closet space?

    Also, I hope they give to Good Will and don't just throw the stuff away.
