Fixer Up­per stars put down their tools

The Expositor (Brantford) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The stars of HGTV’s Fixer Up­per are opening up about the rea­sons for end­ing the show after its fifth sea­son, which premieres next month.

In an in­ter­view with Peo­ple mag­a­zine, Chip and Joanna Gaines cite a gru­el­ing 11-month pro­duc­tion sched­ule as a rea­son for the show’s end. Chip Gaines says the show was de­mand­ing time from him that he needed to be giv­ing to the cou­ple’s busi­nesses, re­la­tion­ship and fam­ily. Joanna Gaines isn’t rul­ing out the pos­si­bil­ity of a re­turn to TV, say­ing “you just never know.”

They also ad­dressed ru­mours of mar­i­tal prob­lems. The two say they have a solid mar­riage that Chip de­scribes as in “a re­ally good place.” Launched in 2013, Fixer Up­per fol­lows the two as they redo houses near their Texas home.
