“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.
Keeping tabs on all things Chip and Joanna Gaines has become our MO on “House Party,” so when we learned that the duo would be joining Oprah Winfrey for an exclusive interview, we knew we had to tune in. Winfrey’s previous high-profile sit-down with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was full of vulnerable admissions and revelations about their lives over the past few years, so we figured that, this time around, we were in for an honest, insightful chat with the famed “Fixer Upper” duo. Did they go as deep as we’d hoped, or were we left wanting more? We get into it on this brand-new episode of “House Party.”
Other topics we discuss:
- It’s been about a year since we went into lockdown, and that (in addition to this New York Times article) prompted us to reflect on our pandemic purchases for the home and how our decor has changed.
- Shaquille O’Neal was so close to closing the sale of his infamous Windermere, FL, estate that he’s been trying to sell for three years. We rejoiced when the $16.5 million pad was reported as pending a month ago, but this week we learned the property is back on the market. Is there anyone in the world willing to buy Shaq’s highly customized mansion?!
- Gloria Estefan may have found a buyer for her bayfront property on Star Island in Miami Beach, FL. Listed in 2015 for $40 million, the house has since gone through multiple price cuts.
- This week’s real estate winner and loser
