“Flea Market Flip”: Lara Spencer dishes on Season 2 of her HGTV show

Flea Market Flip Season 2 premieres 9pm ET March 15 on HGTV. Even if it wasn’t her job to be there, odds are Lara Spencer would still be spending plenty of Saturday mornings rummaging for unique items at yard sales and flea markets. But Spencer, whose day job is cohost on ABC’s Good Morning America, turned her lifelong love of antique shopping into a popular side gig with Flea Market Flip, which is about to return for a second season on HGTV. The concept is the same — two teams scour a flea market for an item to buy, fix […]

Pro athletes’ realtor of choice Jason Abrams stars in HGTV’s “Scoring The Deal”

When he was just 21, Jason Abrams launched his real estate company The Abrams Team in his hometown of Detroit. One decade and two branch offices later, his unique brand of soup-to-nuts (and every black-walled living room and gigantic bathtub in between) service has earned him the devotion of a roster of professional athletes, and the nickname “The Jerry Maguire of real estate.” “In that movie, he became everything to his clients — he was a shoulder to cry on, he showed up at their games, he was negotiating their contracts — and in our world, that’s what we’ve really […]

“7 Questions” With … Lisa Lampanelli of HGTV’s “Celebrity Holiday Homes”

When I interviewed Lisa Lampanelli, she was kind, courteous and about as accommodating as one could hope. … I know, I was disappointed, too. Then again, the acid-tongued comic known as the Queen of Mean — who made her name mercilessly roasting celebrities like William Shatner, Pamela Anderson, and Donald Trump — was talking about a project that put her in a very good mood. She is one of three famous folks (along with Tamara Tunie and Haylie Duff) receiving a seasonal home makeover in the latest Celebrity Holiday Homes, which airs 9pm Friday on HGTV. She jokes that she was […]

7 Questions With … Beth Stern of HGTV’s “Mom Caves”

There’s far more to Beth Stern than being the wife of shock jock and self-proclaimed King of All Media Howard Stern. The model turned her love of dogs into the book Oh My Dog, and is also the host of HGTV’s new renovation series Mom Caves, which premieres May 12 at 7:30pm, just in time for Mother’s Day. RELATED: Howard Stern perfect fit for NBC’s America’s Got Talent What has been your strangest fan encounter? I always find it surprising when people just hand me their dogs to hold them. I’m still a stranger to the animal, and I always […]

Former “Real Housewife of New Jersey” Dina Manzo is the life of HGTV’s “Dina’s Party”

By Lori Acken Follow @ChannelGuide If you were like me, the ultimate pleasure of watching Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey wasn’t watching Danielle get her perpetual whackadoodle on, or Theresa get her this-may-lead-to-trouble shop on, or anything out there like that. It was seeing all the fabulous upscale-boho things in Dina Manzo’s wardrobe and getting little glimpses into her treasure-filled house, with a rooster here and a buddha there and an antique chandelier to spotlight it all. While the other Housewife Homes made for the type of backdrop Housewife-franchise watchers have come to expect, Dina’s felt like a home […]

“Home By Novogratz” brings “9 By Design” family to HGTV

Stars of reality series switching shows and networks isn’t uncommon. Paris Hilton might be on E! one year, then Oxygen the next. And who knows when and where an old Real World star might show up? Going from Bravo to HGTV, however, is more of a oddity. But Bob and Cortney Novogratz say the change suits them just fine. The New York-based designers broke into television with last year’s 9 By Design, which showcased the work they do with their celebrated Manhattan design firm, Sixx Design, as well as their home life raising seven children. They’re back this year with […]
