Everyone makes mistakes. For instance, you might mistakenly write an entire column about how Chip and Joanna Gaines can’t possibly be good parents for USA Today, like writer Daryl Austin did, and then have to publicly apologize. It happens.
This week’s very special episode of Dirtcast comes via listener request!
Chip and Joanna Gaines entered the living rooms of Americans everywhere through Fixer Upper—the couple’s folksy, chirpy home renovation show that premiered on HGTV in 2014. It was there that the Gaineses introduced the world at large to the wonders of shiplap, French doors, and antique chairs nailed to the wall as…
There may be more to the news of Chip and Joanna Gaines ending their Fixer Upper run on HGTV after five seasons, according to Page Six, whose source claims that the couple’s seemingly premature retirement came about as a result of “horrible contracts” with the network.
Fixer Upper is enormously popular, driving home decorating trends across America and reaching the point where its hosts can spin off into any number of other ventures—books, magazines, branded furniture, whatever they want. And the Gaines have just announced that they are done after Season 5. Say what?
I’m dictating this post through Siri because, after seeing the cover of a new book by Fixer Upper star Chip Gaines, I can no longer read or write. It is called Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff, and will probably be as (if not more) successful than his and wife Joanna’s first book, The Magnolia…
The latest addition to Chip and Joanna Gaines’s shiplap-and-big-clock theme park in Waco, Texas is a restaurant. Did you ever think we’d be so lucky?
The unstoppable march of the Gaines family continues, as Chip announces he is publishing a memoir, Capital Gaines.
Chip Gaines has been slapped with a lawsuit by his original cofounders in the Magnolia Real Estate Company, who allege he basically stiffed them, buying them out for cheap without disclosing that he and Joanna were about to debut on HGTV. He has responded in very Chip Gaines style.
It’s very easy to put yourself in a cozy position on the couch, flip your cable box to HGTV, and waste one to 10 hours watching nothing but HGTV’s Fixer Upper. The show, hosted by real-life couple/business partners Chip and Joanna Gaines, is a wonderfully structured and comfortingly repetitive bit of home improvement…
Are you a farmer with an ancient, tumbling-down barn you can’t really use anymore? Well, thanks to the current wild enthusiasm for reclaimed wood, you could be able to get perfectly good money for it. Might as well make some ducats off the fact that so many people are willing to pay top dollar for the athleisure…
Chip and Joanna Gaines love the Lord, shiplap and home renovations but they’d really, really like it if people just lived in the homes they renovate instead of using them as vacation rentals.
Because one’s mother so often, ultimately, gets the last laugh, I have turned into somebody who spends her weekends binge-watching whatever’s on HGTV, which means I’ve recently spent quite a few hours watching Chip and Joanna Gaines renovate homes in Waco, Texas on their show Fixer Upper.
I have never been more excited to type words like these words I am about to write for you now: Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper are launching a magazine and I unironically cannot wait.
