In a recent blog post on her site, Magnolia, Joanna Gaines, co-host of the popular HGTV show “Fixer Upper,” reminded her fans that “you can’t believe everything that you read” when it comes to rumors regarding her, her husband and co-host, Chip Gaines, and the state of the show.
Rumors and reality television often go hand-in-hand, and the hosts of “Fixer Upper” are not immune. Joanna admits that some rumors do end up being true, but the majority are anything but. She wrote, “At this point in our career we can honestly say, we’ve heard it all – from reports of us moving our family to Vegas to use having more or less children than we actually have.”
As reported by the Independent Journal Review, one of the more recent rumors suggested Joanna was leaving the show to begin a line of cosmetics. While some may think such a move isn’t out of the question considering the number of projects with which the couple is involved, Joanna said that cosmetics is not something she was interested in pursuing, including a direct statement, “No! I am not getting into the business of facial creams.”
She also confirmed that she and Chip were currently working on season 5 of the popular show, and refuted the rumor that another child was on the way, saying, “And No! We are not expecting baby #5.”
Joanna, Chip, and their Magnolia company are involved in numerous ventures, but typically remained focused on home products. Some of the projects beyond their construction company include furniture, rugs, a paint line, wallpaper, and a magazine. Discussing the company, Joanna wrote, “We love Magnolia, and we’re passionate about all things home.”
To help fans determine which information is true, Joanna recommends referring to their official website for confirmation. She admits it’s not possible for her and Chip to “control all of the information that’s out there” and told fans to take any information they may see off the site with a grain of salt.
“If you’re reading big, exciting news about us, and we did not confirm it on out official sites, then proceed with caution.”
