“House Party” is realtor.com®’s official podcast about the overlapping worlds of real estate and pop culture, hosted by Natalie Way and Rachel Stults. Click the player above to hear our take on this week’s hot topics.
For nearly three decades, HGTV has churned out lighthearted, wholesome content that, when consumed, feels like a warm hug. Its home renovation TV shows—particularly the programming over the past 10 years—have provided an easy watching experience for those of us looking for a soothing, formulaic, low-stakes viewing experience.
But a recent story in the New Yorker indicated that things might be changing at HGTV: The content might be getting edgier. With potential new shows with working titles like “Meth-House Makeover,” “Nightmare Neighbors 911,” and “The World’s Weirdest Realtors,” it appears that the executives at Discovery (HGTV’s parent company) are thinking outside the box—and we’re totally on board.
On this episode of “House Party,” we break down this story and give our honest, unfiltered opinions. Are we in favor of HGTV getting a little weird? Press play above to find out!
And, we also crown this week’s celebrity real estate winner and loser. Our winner, an NBA star and exotic fish aficionado, swam off with quite a deal on his Las Vegas mansion. And, despite lowering the asking price of her Southern California mansion, our loser (a fast-food restaurant heiress) won’t be flipping burgers anytime soon.
