This isn't the first time Chip and Joanna Gaines have been candid about issues that have cropped up during their time filming episodes of Fixer Upper. While they've said they have "no problem" with homeowners listing houses, as long ago as 2017 the couple had reworked contracts to try to cut back on the problem. A rep told the Waco Tribune at the time the "goal" was to do "remodels for clients' homes" calling it "the true intent" of the show and also noting it was what the audience expected.
While the rentals issue is on a larger scale, Joanna and Chip are fairly open books, and have even been candid about how the couples' first Fixer Upper renovation ended up being a "mess." They also have spoken about their crazy whirlwind cable run and how they ended up leaving HGTV, only to suffer headwinds getting their own channel Magnolia Network off the ground (you can now view programming with an HBO Max subscription).
"They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world," the post continued. They even shared a new candid photo from their wedding in May 2018, where Markle is laughing and Prince Harry just looks so incredibly in love.
Jeannette Walls tells a story of her early childhood growing up in a highly dysfunctional family with parents who are free spirits doing what makes each of them happy at the moment. Her father promises her that someday, he will build her a glass castle on the beach. She dreams of this beautiful home, but throughout the years, she and her siblings are homeless and learn to care for themselves while their parents take off for places unknown. She teaches life lessons of resilience, redemption, and forgiveness that have stayed with me for a very long time.
We've seen it with other critically acclaimed 2010 books, like Atlas, and Thor The Mighty Avenger. Must readers, or more importatntly retailers gamble with over-buying a new book, without knowing whether it will sell through to the fans? What is Marvel's responsibility to give books enough of a chance on the shelf to find an audience, before cutting off a new monthly title? Would books from earlier this decade, like Brian Bendis's ALIAS have survived in today's market? You'll hear a candid discussion on the subject on this episode of Word Balloon. 2b1af7f3a8
