90 Day Fiance star Varya Malina recently revealed that she has a bad habit of hoarding. However, she isn’t the only one who suffers from this disorder. It runs in her family. It even seems to be common among many Russians.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Varya Malina Struggles with Hoarding
Varya Malina spilled the beans on one of her bad habits. She has a hard time letting go of items that she may no longer need. Varya tends to be a hoarder. The 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cast member said that she, and most Russian, are a big fan of not throwing anything old anyway. Instead, they find a new purpose for the old item.
The 90 Day Fiance reality star gets creative when it comes to repurposing items. Varya Malina would take an old t-shirt and use it as a rag to clean. She said that at her house, an old toothbrush would be used as a shoe brush. Varya also said that she likes to use her “exes as a rug.” She believes that they belong on the floor in the hall. She said, “let them lick dirt from my feet.”
Varya’s Bad Habit Runs in the Family
The hoarding gene seems to run in Varya Malina’s family. She said that the need to keep everything comes from her ancestors. When the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days castmate was a child, her mom’s nylon pantyhose had three lives. Varya’s mom would first use them for what they are meant for. She would then wear them under her pants to help keep her warm. And when that didn’t work, Varya’s mom would store onions in them.
The 90 Day Fiance TLC star’s mom isn’t the only family member who repurposes items. Varya Malina said that during her lifetime, her maternal grandfather had never bought new clothes. She said that when his clothes were no longer wearable, they would cut them into strings and used them to tie tomato plants to stakes.
Varya Malina’s relatives don’t seem to be the only ones who struggle with hoarding. She said that the whole country “lived and still lives” with that mindset. There is always a purpose for everything, even if it’s not the original one.
90 Day Fiance Celeb Celebrates Russian Tradition
Varya Malina recently spoke about another Russian tradition that she links to hoarding. She said that they celebrate “Old New Year.” Like hoarding, it is taking the old year and making it new. According to Varya, not many people know where the tradition comes from or what it involves. But, she knows that they have a lot of fun celebrating it.
However, Varya Malina from 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days celebrates both traditions. She said that Russia has both “New Year” and “Old New Year.” According to Varya, they both symbolize the start of a new beginning, just according to two different calendars, Georgian and Julian. Following both calendars gives them two reasons to party.
