According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, past clients of Candis and Andy Meredith spoke out against the couple upon the release of their new show “Home Work” on the Magnolia Network, claiming their past experience with the HGTV couple was a “remodel from hell.” The new series was promptly canceled only two days after the highly anticipated Magnolia Network hit the airwaves. “Within the last few days, we have learned additional information about the scope of these issues, and we have decided to remove ‘Home Work’ from the Magnolia Network lineup pending a review of the claims that have been made,” read a statement from Chip and Joanna Gaines’ venture.
The claims in question come from a series of Instagram posts from a homeowner who claims the Merediths overcharged her for renovations that took months longer than contracted. “People, bank accounts, livelihoods, families, our health, sanity… all of us have been left on the cutting-room floor,” said the Utah resident. “I’m speaking up to protect potential future victims from their dangerous pattern of behavior.” The client additionally alleged the renovations left a drainage problem that cost $18,000 to repair.
The HGTV couple denies the claims made against them, taking to social media to write, “We can only say that there are two sides to every story and we lose not to go public with our truth, because we know how hurtful this feels, we understand that only hearing one side can paint a negative picture.”
