    141. Chip and Jo's Emmy Nom. A 'Selling Sunset' Baby? Plus, 'Battle on the Beach' Crowns a Winner

    We were pretty shocked to hear that Chip and Joanna Gaines had never won an Emmy for their juggernaut renovation show "Fixer Upper." Since the duo were never producers on that show, though, they were never eligible.
    But now, as owners of Magnolia Network and executive producers of "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home," Chip and Jo have the opportunity to win gold. Last week, we learned that "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" was nominated for Outstanding Structured Reality Program. The Emmys are scheduled for September 12, and we'll be waiting with bated breath to see if they come out on top.
    In other reality TV news, Tarek and Heather Rae El Moussa announced they're having a baby. And one team reigned supreme on the season finale of "Battle on the Beach." Which team and mentor were victorious? We cover it all on this episode of "House Party."

    140. Chatting With the Host of Netflix’s ‘How To Build a Sex Room’. Plus, Guest Room Renos on 'Battle on the Beach'

    Netflix’s series “How To Build a Sex Room” doesn’t require viewers to guess about its subject matter. It’s all there in the title!
    Throughout the years, we’ve seen more homeowners construct sex rooms and BDSM basements inside their homes, but this is the first time this trend has been packaged in the form of a renovation reality show.
    So we jumped at the chance to sit down with luxury interior designer and series host Melanie Rose, aka the “Mary Poppins” of sex rooms, to learn more about her racy new show and the work she does. It turns out, there’s a lot more to her job than simply working whips and chains into home decor.
    Then, we continue our recap of season two of "Battle on the Beach". This week, teams take on the guest bedroom and bathroom.

    139. This Might Be The Worst-Designed Room in ‘Battle on the Beach’ History. Plus, Noteworthy Homes on TV

    Hi friends! On this week's episode of "House Party," Natalie lets everyone in on the Netflix press junket she attended where she interviewed the reality TV stars of "Selling the OC," "Dream Home Makeover," and more.
    Then, Rachel and Natalie realize they're both currently watching TV shows with remarkable real estate.
    And the "Battle on the Beach" recaps continue on with a rundown of this week's episode in which the teams of rookie designers and HGTV mentors renovate the kid's room. Mid-way through construction, the teams are forced to put down their tools and compete in a puzzle challenge. When it comes to final judging, all the teams struggle with safety issues in their rooms, and one team churns out what might very well be the worst-designed room we've ever seen on "Battle on the Beach." Period.

    If you could design the living room in your ultimate beach house, what would it look like? That's the question the teams on "Battle on the Beach" had to ponder this week. Of course, being a part of this design competition means they have to stick to a strict budget and a limited timeline, but that doesn't mean they could slack off on putting unique, creative touches on their spaces. To impress the judges and take home the top prize this week, the teams had to add an architectural detail and antique nautical decor to their living rooms. Which team reigned supreme? We break it all down on this week’s episode of “House Party.”
    And, after a brief hiatus, Winners and Losers is back! In this segment, we take a look at what celebrities have been up to in the world of real estate. We crown one winner who made some cash on a recent home sale and one loser who wasn't so lucky.

    137. Alison Victoria's Questionable Design Decision on 'Battle on the Beach'. Plus, Boomer Decor Stereotypes

    We're back and continuing with our recap of season two of "Battle on the Beach," the shoreside design competition where  HGTV stars and novice house flipping teams renovate old beach houses. The team who adds the most value back into the property wins the ultimate prize of $50,000.
    This week, the teams are tasked with overhauling the main suite in their home. While everyone is concerned with making their spaces luxurious and stylish, one team takes their creativity a little too far and makes a questionable design decision.
    Press play and hear us break it all down on this week's episode of "House Party."

    136. Ty Pennington Reveals One Design Choice That Makes Him Want to Cry; Plus, a Peek at Tom Cruise's Real Estate

    Summer is closer than ever, and on HGTV that means a return to the shore for another season of "Battle on the Beach." We thoroughly enjoyed the first season of this home renovation competition show, and we weren't alone. Last year, it was watched by more than 13 million viewers. So you can only imagine how excited we were to meet three new teams of competitors and see them flip three identical beach houses with the help of their HGTV mentors Ty Pennington, Taniya Nayak, and Alison Victoria.
    This week, the teams tackled the kitchen and dining areas in their respective beach houses. One team's design reigned supreme, but the episode featured plenty of twists and turns that we couldn't wait to discuss. Want to hear our hot takes? Press play on this new episode of "House Party."
    And, in the wake of "Top Gun: Maverick" being the hottest movie of the summer, we welcome Realtor.com celebrity real estate writer Claudine Zap back on the podcast to discuss Tom Cruise’s real estate portfolio.

Talking with friends.

Loved the conversational nature of this pod and the interviews and behind the scenes details. This is my favorite subject matter. I’ll continue to listen.

I really enjoy listening because in every podcast there is a learning theme. Vinegar was my go to cleaner, not anymore. I particularly enjoy decorating ideas ins/outs of today’s ideas. Is square footage really a tool to price a home? Look forward to next episode. Our friends parents had several (too many) Coca Cola memorabilia in their house. Funny about Michigan guy!! That was fun listening, great one!! Final 2020 episode was fantastic! Look forward listening in 2021. Natalie and Rachel have great insights, each with different styles and opinions. Fun listening!! Ty was awesome, such great energy and tips! Thank you Natalie and Rachel for sharing his insights.
