‘Fixer Upper’ Stars Chip and Joanna Gaines Host Last Season Premiere Party

Chip and Joanna Gaines hosted their last season premiere party with over 100 of their closest friends … and, yes, that’s Chip without his trademark beautiful locks. We’ll explain. The “Fixer Upper” stars had a season 5 premiere party Tuesday…


Chip and Joanna Gaines FINALLY Address Rumors of Marital Troubles!

Fixer Upper is extremely popular, and so are its stars — Chip and Joanna Gaines. Which is why it's so surprising that Fixer Upper is ending while it's still going so strong.

Are we, as a society, so accustomed to shows jumping the shark that we can't conceive of a show deliberately ending on a high note? Or is there something going on behind the scenes? Like, say, relationship trouble between Chip and Joanna?

Well, in the video below, the Fixer Upper couple is finally giving in to demands for answers.

As you'll see in the video, Joanna and Chip Gaines finally cave and spoke to E! about the questions and rumors about their relationship and how it may have influenced their decision to end their show while it's going strong.

And they're denying everything, basically.

Chip expressed surprise, as he'd imagined that the news that the two of them were done with Fixer Upper would inspire fans to wonder what they were doing next.

That is … adorably naive.

Humans like puzzles and we like believable narratives and reasons that we can understand. "We quit our successful show because it was time" doesn't strike most people as plausible.

Chip continues:

"It's just the rumor mill — I think — surprised us a little bit."

You know … he might be telling the truth. Maybe they never expected the public to, right or wrong, guess that they were having issues.

But he says that he understands that they're famous and that all of this goes with the territory.

"When you put yourself out in the public light like this, people are going to speculate like this and we have had our fair share of that, but Jo and I are just as happy as we have ever been."

There has to be something going on, right?

Joanna speaks up and acknowledges that fans have good reason to ask the questions that they've been asking, however:

"I think it seems weird to kind of leave on a high note. I think for people, there has got to be a negative reason to that. I think that is not always how life has to be."

Maybe, but that's how life usually is.

Shows either stay good over long stretches, get better over time, get worse over time, or were terrible to start with. Otherwise, there's something else going on.

"I think for us we felt that season five was just the perfect end to this beautiful chapter, but really the why is time, you know?"

So, basically, they just felt like not doing it anymore. That's what she's claiming.

"Unfortunately, I don't think if they came back and offered a billion dollars that we would step back at this point."

Obviously, she's relying upon the absurdity of that hypothetical scenario. Plenty of people would commit murder for a billion dollars.

"We are pretty headstrong and when we feel like it is the right decision for our relationship, for our family, for our business, it would take an act of congress to knock us off that position."

That's a weird way of phrasing that, but whatever.

You know, depending upon rights ownership issues to which we aren't privy, the network could always try to make it work under the same name.

A show called Fixer Uppers could be about, we dunno, interventions for people who take a lot of stimulants.

Or, with a tweak, Fixer Puppers could be about a veterinarian. 

But it's clear that the Gaines-es want us to be focusing on what they're going to do next, professionally speaking.

That's what we gather from Chip's words, anyway. So … what exactly will they do next? We have no idea.

Chip and joanna gaines finally address rumors of marital trouble

Joanna and Chip Gaines: It’s Over!*

* Professionally, that is.

With Chip Gaines having just released a new book, the HGTV star and his beloved wife have been sitting for a number of promotional interviews this week.

Plenty has been revealed in these segments, but perhaps the most intriguing tidbit of all is Chip’s admission that he’d be open to a return to television.

Under one condition, that is: Joanna isn’t invited!

Asked by Daily Pop host Justin Sylvester whether he could envision himself starring on another series down the line, Chip said the following:

“It would have to be a show where it would be me, just all by myself – that could be a thing that I would be interested in.”

He may have been joking, but he may also just be interested in branching out a bit.

Chip and Joanna shocked and saddened fans this month when they announced Fixer Upper was coming to an end after Season 5.

Asked about that decision in this interview, Joanna referenced her four children and stated:

“Our kids are getting older for us and time seems to be slipping away faster, so I think we wanted to take a step back and get refreshed and focus on what’s next for us.”

The stars are parents to Drake, 12; Ella, 11; Duke, 9 and Emmie Kay, 7.

In addition to Fixer Upper, which is HGTV’s top-rated program, the twosome have quite an empire.

There’s the home improvement business… their Magnolia Market store… their magazine, The Magnolia Journal … and retail collaborations, including a partnership with Target.

There have also been rumors of relationship tension between Chip and Joanna because the Internet can’t help but speculate on the status of famous couples.

And while Chip has shot down such chatter in the past, he actually gave it a “little credence” in speaking with The Today Show on Tuesday.

“For us, the most important thing in the world is Jo and I’s relationship, followed very quickly by these four beautiful kids [of ours],” he said, adding:

“We didn’t want to push it, to redline it for so long that we woke up and realized we are at a point of no return.

“We wanted to take a step back and focus on what is absolutely the most important thing to us.”

The Capital Gaines author continued:

“People in our inner circle, I tell them we’re as healthy as we’ve ever been. I just didn’t want to keep pushing this envelope to the fullest extent.

“We’re really thankful that we had the opportunity to step back and take a break.”

Things certainly do sound fine and dandy between the parents of four.

Consider Joanna’s caption to a new Instagram photo of herself, her husband and his book:

This guy right here… I get to live life with him. I get to hear his thoughts and benefit from his wisdom and encouragement on a daily basis.

The reason I am who I am today is because Chip pushed me to go for it. People think of him as a jokester, and he is. It’s a huge part of why I fell in love with him in the first place.

But he is so much more than that.

He is the ultimate cheerleader, coach and dream maker. I am so thrilled that his book releases today mostly because I believe it holds truth that the world is in desperate need of. I am always proud to be Chip’s wife but today more than ever. I know this book was a true labor of love.

Well done, Chip Carter Gaines!

Yeah. It’s safe to say these two are happy.


Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines: Relationship Problems Revealed!

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines have accomplished the near impossible.

The married HGTV stars have managed to remain starkly in the spotlight for years… without almost any divorce chatter ever making its way around the Internet.

The parents of four will soon embark on what they’ve announced will be their final season of mega hit Fixer Upper and are generally considered one of the most loved couples on all of television.

Whereas starring roles on reality TV programs have driven other twosomes apart, the chemistry between Chip and Joanna has only intensfied over the years.

But this wasn’t always the case.

In his new memoir, “Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff,” Gaines says his romance with Joanna was nearly over before it really began.

About six months into their relationship, Chip says he went to Mexico for 90 days to learn Spanish.

His then-girlfriend was placed in charge of his businesses* while he was away… and this caused a major problem.

(*Yes, Chip started a number of businesses before he settled on home renovation and real estate. Click on the slideshow below to find out more.)

“Your business is a joke!” she yelled, Chip admits in his book about a phone call they had just weeks after he left.

“All these people are coming to my dad’s shop demanding to be paid, and there’s no money. Lucky for you, your sad is bailing your sorry butt out. You have three days to get back to Texas or this relationship is over.”

Chip says the tone she used made it clear Joanna was dead serious.

“My heart broke,” he wrote, adding in the book:

“There are hard moments in life when you see yourself for the tonto that you are. This all felt so much bigger than a few bounced checks.

“Up until that moment, Jo had really respected me and the work that I did.”

So Chip rushed home to Texas and nearly proposed then and there.

He knew he couldn’t lose Joanna and he respected how straightforward she was acting when it came both to his business and to their relationship.

Today? No marriage is perfect, but this one does appear to be on television at least.

Still, Chip says the couple is “strengthening their marriage every day, which takes real time and effort.”

This is practically what Chip and Joanna said upon confirming Fixer Upper would end after Season 5.

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment,” they explained, concluding:

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”
