Probably a complete lie in order to get attention and sympathy. In an old interview with Howie Mandel, Wig presented the fact that he used his sleeve to open the doors to bathrooms. That's not OCD, it's just a reasonable precaution when using a filthy public bathroom. In other shows he also described tapping and counting and other bullshit lies. Also that he can't touch his hair after touching the dog otherwise his hair will fall out (too late) or something like that. BULLSHIT. Now Howie M, on the other hand, is the real deal. Washing hands 40 times/day, waiting at the public bathroom door for someone else to open it, unable to take off a fucking string bracelet. In a hotel: wrapping his hands in TP to pull the comforter off, ordering enough towels to cover the floor, putting a towel down in the shower, etc. Taking reasonable steps to make sure you don't get sick from careless exposure is one thing but OCD is a whole different level --- and Howard never had it.
