The Oxygen network will be offering a new show this fall entitled “My Shopping Addiction.” The show will cover more than just the thrill of the shopping hunt. It will delve into the subject of shopping as an addiction and the pain this addiction causes individuals as their finances spin out of control. This first-person view of the story behind the accumulation of clothing, jewelry, and household items could be eye-opening for people caught in the spiral of shopping, guilt, returning, and shopping for more. Oxygen has increased its original programming by 50 percent this year, aiming to show real-life situations and how people handle them.
