Lorraine Bracco is going back to her Sicilian roots for HGTV
September 16th, 2020 under HGTV. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t know if you know this, but Lorraine Bracco is Italian. I mean, you might have been able to figure that out from her roles in The Goodfellas, The Sopranos, or Rizolli and Isles.

Anyways, her family has ties to Sicily. Therefore, when the actress saw that they are selling houses on the tiny hilltop town of Sambuca di Sicilia for one Euro, she had to buy one. There are just some problems with the 200-year-old home she acquired. It has no electricity, running water, kitchen or bathrooms, and it needs to be gutted due to its deteriorating floors, crumbling walls and dilapidated roof.

“This is a huge undertaking,” said Bracco. “I’m not a contractor. I’m not a decorator. I’m an actress. I’ve never done this before. I have no idea what I’m really getting into! It’s a lot of work, but everything is possible. I believe that. And for one euro, we’ll see!”

It is a big job for anyone to do, so she called up HGTV and asked them for help. She is not going to do it alone. She will have assitance from her contractor Piero, their translator Cynthia, some of her American friends, and the locals of the town.

This is a town whose mayor came up with the idea to sell these homes for cheap in order to encourage families to return to the rural oasis. Bracco has three years to complete the renovation. Something that will be easy to do with HGTV by her side.

We can watch her take on her hardest role to date in My Big Italian Adventure, starting on October 30th. Until then, I will be rewatching her in one my favorite movies Sing. If you have never seen it, it is a must watch.

Conan O’Brien gives Jordan Schlansky a nude statue of himself`
September 11th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien, HGTV. [ Comments: none ]


I think Conan O’Brien keeps Jordan Schlansky around to torture him. In his latest successful attempt, Conan brought in the Property Brothers to renovate the Associate Producer’s messy office.

It was a renovation that might even be too difficult for Drew and Jonathan Scott. The space was not an issue; Jordan is the issue. They decided to give him an Italian motif for the room. He kept turning down all of their ideas until they mentioned a marble statue. Conan agreed to pose for one in the style of David, and it is a work of art. The TBS late night host says that he wishes it was actual size. I guess height doesn’t play into size.

Anyways, how did the office come out? It left Conan in happy tears! It was a dream come true for him. However, it is a short nightmare for Jordan.

One of the married homeowners kept hitting on Jonathan Scott
January 31st, 2020 under Conan O'Brien, HGTV. [ Comments: none ]


The Property Brothers were on Conan yesterday and they talked about their track record with the ladies.

Did you know that Drew was so bad with women that he had to buy a book to get better with them? Jonathan said his twin went from not being able to talk to girls to becoming a douce. In fact, Drew’s pickup line to his now-wife was, “Where did you get that water?” Hey, it worked.

When it comes to Jonathan, he once had a married homeowner hit on him, and her husband had no idea what she was doing. Drew acted out how she would come out of nowhere and do this slithering thing to let Jonathan know she was interested. He was not.

The brothers said she was not the only weird person whose house they worked on. Of the 400 people, they worked with there were about a dozen that made their internal weird reel. Oh, to be a fly on the wall to see what is on that tape.

Then the twins pointed out that a lot of construction terms are really perverted. Things like “lube up the nipple” and “lay some caulk.” You know, HGTV should give them a show demonstrating all of these terms and call it HGTV After Dark. They can film it at the Brady Bunch house to give it that ’70s porn feel. I would pay attention to every word they say, and I don’t care about remodeling. I just hope that Drew doesn’t use any of his pickup lines because they are really awful.

HGTV wants your small town
January 8th, 2020 under HGTV. [ Comments: none ]


As if taking on the Brady Bunch house was not a big enough challenge for HGTV, they want to do something even bigger. They want to renovate a whole town. That is right, a whole town.

If you think your hometown would be perfect for Ben and Erin Napier to remodel, then you can submit for it to be on Home Town Takeover. What are the requirements? You need to show and tell HGTV why your small town, with its historic architecture and classic main street, should be the one town featured in the upcoming event series. Your town must have a population of less than 40,000. If chosen, you will witness the rehab of multiple individual family homes and the revitalization of public spaces, such as parks, local diners, and recreation centers.

If this sounds like where you live, then you better hurry up and apply by February 7th.

Before we get to that deadline, Home Town is back with 16 all new episodes starting on January 20th. That will give you even more incentive to get the Napiers to makeover your town. That is if you live in a smaller town than me.

A Very Brady Renovation gets three spinoffs!
October 1st, 2019 under HGTV, The Brady Bunch. [ Comments: 2 ]


Tonight on A Very Brady Renovation, the designers finished the renovation on the Brady Bunch house and made it look like the one we knew. Since they are finished that means the series is finished too.

Not so fast. Just like The Brady Bunch was not the end of the Brady Bunch, neither is tonight’s episode. For the next two weeks, we are getting The Brady Brides of the HGTV series. As in A Very Brady Renovation: Behind the Build. We will get see even more in-depth how they turned a one-story, two-bedroom house into a two-story home with four bedrooms and a very groovy attic below.

Not only will we get to see more behind the scenes with Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy), will transfix fans of the iconic television series as they work alongside HGTV’s biggest renovation star experts Jonathan and Drew Scott (Property Brothers: Forever Home), Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E Laine (Good Bones), siblings Leanne and Steve Ford (Restored by the Fords), Jasmine Roth (Hidden Potential) and Lara Spencer (Flea Market Flip). We will also get a really nice surprise. Do you know how I mentioned The Brady Brides? Well, they had husbands and Mr. Marcia Marcia Marcia aka Jerry Houser and Jan’s real-life George Glass aka Ron Kuhlman will make a special appearance on one of those two episodes.

Not only will we be getting more of the renovation, but we will also be getting The Brady Bunch Hour. No, they will not be singing and dancing again. However, they will be singing like a canary. As in during the 8-episode digital series Just Ask Brady, they will be spilling secrets as they answer fan’s questions.

Wait, there is even more. Back in 1988, The Bradys got a Christmas movie and so will this show. Coming in December we will be getting another holiday special from The Bradys.

That’s all for now. Although, there is one more series I would love to see from HGTV. Remember when Knight did Surreal Life? How about we do a Surreal Life like series with all the Brady kids living in their house. Who wouldn’t want to watch that?
