Guilty Plea­sure

OK! (USA) - - This Week -

Joanna and Chip Gaines don't let their five kids watch TV. But when their brood is asleep, the Fixer Up­per alums can’t help but binge on their fa­vorite pro­grams, an in­sider tells OK!. “Joanna caved in and let Chip buy a por­ta­ble TV a cou­ple years ago, and she loves it as much as he does. It’s their guilty plea­sure,” says the in­sider, not­ing that Joanna loves cook­ing shows, like The Pi­o­neer Woman, while Chip likes to catch up on sports. “They try to be as dis­creet as pos­si­ble about it so that the kids will never know.” While it may seem hyp­o­crit­i­cal, the in­sider in­sists that Jo and Chip — who also refuse to give their kids cell phones — have good in­ten­tions. “The rule is re­ally in place so that the kids aren’t zoned out in front of the TV screen all day,” ex­plains the in­sider. “They want to teach their chil­dren that life hap­pens out­side of these de­vices.”
