The saga continues on the actual motive behind why Chip and Joanna Gaines have determined to finish Fixer Higher. Whereas the hosts have said their reasoning for ending the show was to take a break, rumors have surfaced prior to now month that there have been different, underlying, reasons as to why the 2 wished to step away. Now, one other loopy motive has surfaced, and whereas nothing is confirmed, it is being speculated the 2 walked over disputes with exhibiting their merchandise on the collection, they usually could possibly be plotting a return to tv with a present on one other community.
Particularly, Vanity Fair is reporting the rumor that the couple leaving Fixer Higher had come earlier than a dispute with them showcasing their Magnolia Market line of merchandise within the collection. Scripps, which has no stake within the Magnolia Market residence decor line, apparently did not need Chip and Joanna Gaines exhibiting their merchandise except they had been to work out some type of association. Now, the present phrase is that the Gaines’ have met with a couple of different retailers, and could possibly be planning a return to tv a lot earlier than anticipated.
Given how detailed tv contracts will be, it appears unlikely that Scripps would depart out a bit that forbids the couple from doing a brand new home-improvement present instantly after ending their run wtih Fixer Higher on HGTV. That stated, if the contract is proscribed to home-improvement reveals, the Gaines may make the soar to a brand new community in some completely different format and presumably hawk their Magnolia Market wares all they need. Whereas the world continues to invest the Gaines’ subsequent transfer, Magnolia Market director of PR Brock Murphy is sticking to the unique story and saying the hosts’ leaving had nothing to do with a dispute with Scripps:
Chip and Jo’s determination to depart Fixer Higher is actually simply based mostly on their desirous to catch their breath for a minute—to relaxation, refresh, and spend much more time with their household and rising companies. It’s not based mostly on something associated to Discovery-Scripps, or the rest that has been falsely reported.
The assertion seems to be a reasonably clear lower shutdown to the rumor, though if it had been true, it would not be good PR to alter the Gaines’ story at this stage. If the Gaines’ are planning one thing behind the scenes, they actually don’t need Fixer Higher followers to find out about it, judging by these statements. In fact, it is also utterly doable they’re telling the reality and are being pushed up the wall with these repeated rumors. If that is true, possibly they will simply begin a brand new present to close everybody up once more!
