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.”


Kailyn Lowry & Dionisio Cephas: Having Problems ALREADY?!

Earlier this week, we reported that Kailyn Lowry is dating Dionisio Cephas.

Actually, it may be too soon to use the term “dating,” but both parties have confirmed that they’re hooking up and would be open to a relationship at some point in the future.

So basically, these two are in a relationship, but neither of them is prepared to admit it yet.

But regardless of what sort of “friends with benefits” labels Kail and the awesomely-named Dionisio are applying to their situation, it seems they’re not above the sort of problems that most couples endure.

Shortly after Dionisio was identified as Kailyn’s new boyfriend (or whatever she’s calling him) the mother of three started posting some tweets that made it sound as though she’s seriously frustrated with a man in her life.

“Over it. Need some better energy around me,” Kail tweeted, adding a few hours later:

“You’ve lost your mind.”

Adding to the perception that Kail is referring to Dionisio, she retweeted a fan who remarke:

“Stop bullsh-ttin and make it official!”

It’s not hard to see how fans got the impression that Kail is ready to tak the next step and entered a committed relationship with Dioniso, while he’s a bit more hesitant to make it official.

“I’m psychic… I knew this would happen,” Kail tweeted on Tuesday, prompting many fans to wonder if she and Cephas had called it quits.

Kailyn didn’t respond to the barrage of questions from fans, but she did offer a subtle indication that the situation that she and Dionisio are working through their problems.

Just when things were beginning to really look bleak, she retweeted a piece of relationship advice from Cephas himself:

“Know the difference between someone that’s really down or someone who’s just tryna keep you around,” he wrote.

Perhaps the complexities of the situation can best be summed up by this cryptic tweet from Kail:

“Been going through it……. been getting through it.”

Or maybe we’re just reading way too much into her social media posts.

How else are we supposed to kill time between new epiosdes?!

Speaking of which, watch Teen Mom 2 online for your daily dose of Kail and company.


Aaron Carter Admits to Drug Problems, Storms Off Set on The Doctors

Former child star Aaron Carter appears to have hit quite a rough patch in recently.

Last week, police visited Carter's house four times in just 34 hours in response to requests for welfare check-ins from concerned loved ones.

Prior to that, Carter was arrested for DUI and drug possession after being pulled over for driving erratically in a Georgia suburb.

At the time, Carter insisted that he was not drunk, and was simply having a bad reaction to prescribed medications.

To prove to fans that the reports of his hard-partying ways have been greatly exaggerated, Carter sat down with the hosts of The Doctors today.

First the good news:

Host Travis Stork confirmed that Carter is taking a number of prescribed drugs to treat a persistent anxiety and pain disorders, but does not appear to be abusing any substances.

The bad news, however, is that Stork cautioned that the "mixture of benzodiazepines and opiates" found in Aaron's blood is a combination that frequently results in accidental overdoses.

Carter's sister, Leslie Carter, died of an overdose, and the singer says he lives in fear of a similar fate.

At one point in the episode, Stork described Carter as "malnourished," noting that his BMI "is in a very scary range" with a score of just 17.

(18.5 to 24.9 is considered a healthy range.)

Doctors on set reportedly advised Carter to check into rehab immediately, but according to TMZ, the 29-year-old stormed off set and drove from all the way from LA to his home in Florida.

Reps for Carter say the report is bogus and contend that Aaron "quietly and professionally" left the set more than half an hour after he completed filming.

Check out a clip of Carter's appearance on the show below:
