    They said he only started seeing the nanny in September and they split in May. They said she left her job before they started dating so that she would date her boss but they broke up a month later.
    Now TMZ is running some stupid article about how they say there is a "chance" for their marriage to survive. Oh please. No one is buying it they want to keep the money train going

    I'm now reading the show's going to end next year. They're going to film new episodes for next year, and then end it. Not sure how they're going to pull this off.

    I also read somewhere yesterday that they started a type of "FLip or Flop" university thing, where they were charging interested people to show they how to flip homes. People were complaining because their money got taken - and, apparently, so did they.

    Dang, she's getting divorced again. Guess I missed it. Baby daddy #2 and with another year-old kid. Apparently she blames it on anxiety over her "fame"

    Christina Anstead files for divorce from husband Ant a month after announcing separation

    Charles Trepany USA TODAY

    It's official: Christina Anstead has filed for divorce from her estranged husband Ant Anstead.

    The couple's rep, Cassie Zebisch, confirmed the news to USA TODAY on Tuesday, more than a month after Christina Anstead first announced their split on Instagram in September.
    Zebisch added that the couple has no other statement at this time.

    On Sept. 18, the 37-year-old HGTV star announced that she and Ant were separating, a year after welcoming their first child together, son Hudson London Anstead.
    "We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority," she wrote on Instagram. "We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future."

    A week later, Ant, the 41-year-old host of British car show “Wheeler Dealers,” spoke about their breakup.

    “Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like to share private matters publicly,” he wrote on Instagram. “I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us. I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness.”

    Several hours before her estranged husband's post, Christina Anstead opened up on Instagram about anxiety over her fame and how it has affected her relationships.

    "I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two," she wrote. "I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these 'setbacks' I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. So while some may judge me and throw around rumors about me, most of you support me. And that says a lot about this world and where we are headed."

    The couple married in a surprise ceremony at their Newport Beach home in December 2018. In May 2019, Anstead told USA TODAY that she was excited to start a family with Ant Anstead after experiencing “love at first sight.”

    “I felt like I had known him forever, and we’re just super-comfortable with each other,” she said. “We just have a great relationship, he’s amazing. He’s super-caring and understanding, and he really motivates me and supports me.”

    Both have children from previous marriages: Christina Anstead and her "Flip or Flop" co-host Tarek El Moussa were married from 2009 to 2018 and have two children: daughter Taylor, 9, and son Brayden, 5. Ant has a son Archie, 13, and daughter Amelie, 17, with his ex-wife, Louise.

    Christina Anstead added to USA TODAY last year: "He's awesome with my children and he’s already an amazing dad, but I’m looking forward to having a baby with him as well."

    ^^^In the HGTV format, Tarek is the bitch. Christina comes across pretty laid back.

    She’s the epitome of the Orange County woman. The hair, the clothes, the car, the voice, the style, etc.

    i enjoy joy their show for some odd reason, because they have no original style at all. It’s all cookie cutter with one showpiece design. I mean, it works for them because all the model homes here look like they hired them to do the design.

    I hate that the destroy the character in their houses. It every house has to be an open concept. Especially large homes.

    We don't do open concepts here much, especially not in the flats, but I wonder if I would even want a kitchenwho is open to the living room. The noise, the smells... and you cannot close the door and let the husband cook when you are grumpy and want to be alone.

    open concept is great if you live alone but you need at least some walls if you live with anyone, or have kids. or you're an introvert.

    i tend to like it more in long houses like brownstones or row houses, where it's a succession of rooms so there's a kind of natural separation even if there's no wall separating them. or small apartments and lofts. i like it less in wider, standalone houses. it feels too exposed.

    it's definitely the strapless wedding dress of home design though. way overdone.

    and kris, i also hate watch a lot of these HGTV shows and basically spend half an hour yelling at the screen that they're destroying the character of the house and making it into every other generic HGTV house with the trend du jour or yet another watered down target version of midcentury. or sighing with relief that the suburban basic couple passed on the house with architectural features to inflict the HGTV gut job treatment on, and went with the mcmansion in a housing development instead.

    our house is semi-open concept. no door between LV, DR, and kitchen but there are partial walls. for our floor plan it works. it means that most of the rooms on the main floor get a bay view and the fireplace is shared between the LR & DR.

    my sister just bought an HGTV house and i believe it is not fully open concept. not sure if that will give her bragging rights or not. we will see.

    I dunno, I guess it depends on the house. Mine is a 1950s beach house, not big but perfect for 2 people. When we gutted our kitchen a few years back, I thought about knocking down walls but I just couldn't visualize it in my head. So I kept the living room separate from the kitchen/dining and I kinda like it that way. We have some friends who bought a house in the neighborhood, the previous owner gutted the first floor, there are basically no walls, small kitchen, then a huge dining/living room. Wall to wall windows with beautiful views but I just find it somewhat awkward. I don't think they've figured out how to fill the space. And omg I have some art I really love, where would I put it if I had no walls??

    it really does. my last apartment in new york was open concept and i loved it. it was basically 3 rooms in a row. you walked into the kitchen (big by new york standards) and through a big archway was the living room and through another archway the bedroom. i had windows at the back and all along one side so between the light and the big archways, it felt a lot bigger than it was. i put an open shelf between the living room and bedroom, that was the length of half the room (and covered half the archway) and somewhat hid the bed but didn't block any light. the only doors were the front door and the bathroom door.

    Ugh, I see that I made a typo in my post. I meant to say that not every house has to be open concept. Somehow "not" autocorrected to "it".

    I like open concept on smaller homes. In larger homes, it tends to make you choose one gigantic theme for your house. I don't like little boxes everywhere, but I do like a little bit of separation. I agree, sput, it feels way too exposed. I have a larger, newer home and the lots here are at a premium. The houses are long, narrow, and completely open concept. The kitchen is open to the eat in area in the kitchen, which is open to the dining room, which is open to the living room, which is open to the extra sunroom, etc. So basically it's just one big room. Back when we were allowed to have people over (thanks COVID) I always hated having such an open kitchen. Any food prep or clean up was open to everyone.

    sput, I'm the same. On flip or flop, they tore down this huge brick wall in an old midcentury house and I was yelling at the tv! the wall had a fire place in it and really had that midcentury vibe. They could have gone with something cool, but went with more of the same.

    czb, your place sounds divine! Id love a view of the bay

    We live in a really old house, we rent a flat within the house (each story is a flat, four in total). So we have two really small bedrooms and a smallish living room - just how they used to build. A few years ago we had mold in one wall and they had to re-do the whole one side of the entire house. Because the house is owned by a really small company they don't have the funds to just pay for that so they decided to not just re-do the wall but to tear it down completely and just add a room, basically. So they were able to charge us more rent, but it was a win-win for us all because we ended up with 50% more space. The room they added is around 40 square meter and is completly open. They put the kitchen in there, so our flat is now 50% weird old layout and 50% open space loft style. But somehow it works together. And I love having an open kitchen, I wouldn't want it any other way.
