.....specifically, with Andy Dick (is that gonna be Censored ?)
 
Anyway, just discovered this show this morning, and it's pretty entertaining. Fun to see how celebrities get to shop for houses, though not a whole lot different from other, similar real estate shows.
 
However, the episode with Andy is on right now, and I'm just irked to no end. Has he not ALWAYS been a raging gay person?? B/c he's shopping with his ex-GF for a house right now. He and ex have a bunch of kids together. They are no longer together as a couple. But they are BUYING A HOUSE TOGETHER?!! Dead
 
I don't have a problem with gay couples, or divorced or single parents getting along together for the sake of kids, etc. etc. But what woman would get into a relationship with a famously gay man? AND have kids with him?? Shocked
 
Obviously there's a lot more to the story and I haven't been bothered to look into it. But on the surface, it's just obnoxious IMO. Though I suppose the kids are never bored.

I can't really get into these kind of shows(ie. Selling New York) mainly because they are all mega-millionaires and I'm not.
Anyway, a clip of Andy Dick's "shed".Confused

I guess if he's got a buncha kids, he can't really be that gay.
 
Straight or gay, though, I think it's good that he's staying together with the mother of his kids.  As long as he's not bringing home a buncha men or women or whatever the hell he's into.

I've watched some show in which people would buy a home, renovate it, and have the previous owners critique it.
 
I just don't get it.  The homes were perfectly fine "before" (and they were nice "after", too), so why start tearing out good floors and walls and cabinets to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars?

I thought I read that he's bi, but not sure. Not that there's anything wrong with that... LOL

Since I do have aspiriations of becoming a homeowner sooner or later (I'm 29 right now FWIW), I do enjoy those types of shows on HGTV. The thing that irks me is that, 9 times out of 10, the people on the shows always look for homes that costs more than $250K, even condos or townhouses. You rarely ever see someone looking for a modest condo in the $100-150K range, not even on the "my first home" types of shows.

I mean, they DO exist, and are actually quite nice, depending on where you live.

It's just fun getting to see all the different types of houses that exist.
 
As for Andy.....As long as he's not bringing home a buncha men or women or whatever the hell he's into. I guess that's what irks me- he's always had that kind of wild lifestyle, so what now? Having kids automatically domesticates a guy??
 
Guess the key is the fact that he went through rehab, and it seems to have stuck. BUT, he did emphasize that he and the GF were NOT together. Sooooo what else are they both gonna do, but bring home other people? Wacko

Exactly.  Not that I'd expect it from this guy, but that's what they should both do.  Don't bring it around the kids.  Kids don't need to see a parade of their parents' sex partners in and out of the house.

Like, why did they bother buying it in the first place? HGTV & DIY network both need time slot killers, hence the show I guess.

ConfusedI loathe this show.
What can one possibly learn that they can use?
Or, is there so little going on in their own lives that they resort to following the selfish acts of the 'rich and uninteresting'? Guess they saw every episode of 'Family Jewels'.

This one house had a beautiful semi-circle shelf-cabinet thing built into a wall.  It was really nice and because it was built-in, took up absolutely no room.  Looked expensive, too.  But the new owner didn't think it went with his "style", so he tore it out, tossed it, and then had to close up that section of the wall.  I didn't see the point.  "Style", my ass.

Mike Holmes of "Holmes on Holmes" and "Holme's Inspection" does that a lot. I like the shows, but he tosses stuff in the dumpster that I'd love to have.

Ugh, that's disgusting. I don't think we've ever destroyed anything built-in in any house we've lived in. Then again my family's style has always been a very eclectic mish-mash of whatever we like. In this room alone there's furniture from so many different eras and styles.

Well Mike tosses stuff because structurally it's usually crap. I don't know the last time I saw him rip something design because "design" sense.

When I bought my house, it had brand new white (well, off-white) carpeting in the living room, and brand new white porcelain tile in the kitchen/eating area.  I didn't think about what a pain in the ass that would all be.  Even if I did, though, it wouldn't have swayed me.  And I wasn't about to tear out all this new stuff---especially since it all looked so bright and clean.  I've since learned to live with it.

You're kidding, right? If Mike only has to fix or replace the kitchen tile floor, the homeowners always get brand new cabinets, counter tops and appliances.
