The TLC show is back for Season 2 (premieres Sun., June 5, 10PM and 10:30PM ET), but according to the show's experts, psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow and nutrition specialist J.J. Virgin, the difference between Season 1 and 2 is night and day.

Last season, we met freaky eaters addicted to pizza, french fries and Coke, but that seems normal compared to this season's addicts. In the premiere episode, we meet Nikki, a woman obsessed with eating corn starch. Just plain corn starch. Up to 3,300 calories worth of corn starch a day, as a matter of fact.

The second of the premiere episodes will introduce us to Kelly, who's gained 150 pounds in the last 10 years because of her addiction to cheesy potatoes -- basically any kind of potatoes topped with melted cheese. See our exclusive clip of Kelly after the jump ...

Mayim Bialik Promoted to Series Regular on 'Big Bang Theory,' Long Wait for 'The Walking Dead' Season 2 and More

Mayim BialikThe sun is surely going to shine for Mayim Bialik. The former 'Blossom' star has been promoted to series regular on CBS's 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Bialik's deal is for this season only and does not call for her to appear in every episode, Deadline Hollywood reports. The previously recurring guest star first debuted at the end of last season and has popped up a handful of times this season.

This move is similar to one made earlier this year with recurring guest star Melissa Rauch. She's also signed as a regular for this season and not contracted for all episodes.

Since 'Blossom,' Bialik has appeared on many shows, including 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' 'Bones' and most recently 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager.'

Lindsay Price will guest star on 'CSI: New York.' The 'Eastwick' alumna will play Kate, a woman who bonds with Det. Lindsay Monroe Messer (Anna Belknap) after her traumatic past comes back to haunt her. [Entertainment Weekly]

Fans of 'The Walking Dead' may have to wait until October 2011 for a season 2. AMC's October Fearfest programing served as a great tool to launch the series, and the network is hoping to replicate that success. Plus, season 2 hasn't begun filming yet. [Live Feed]
