From one lifestyle show host to another, The Pioneer Woman’s Ree Drummond “totally” understands Chip and Joanna Gaines’s heartbreaking decision to end Fixer Upper.
The queen of comfort food supports America’s favorite renovation gurus and thinks “it was really smart” that they chose to end their show after five seasons in order to spend more time with their family.
Drummond, who is the mother of Alex (20), Paige (18), Bryce (15) and Todd (13), shared her own experience trying to balance a hit Food Network show and her family. She said, “Your kids are only young once. It’s really true that you feel like when you’re in the trenches with young kids that it’ll last forever, and as I learned when my child went to college, it doesn’t. So I totally get it.”
Late last month, the Gaineses announced that this season of Fixer Upper would be their last. As Joanna shared in an interview with the Today show yesterday, “We have this young, growing family, and I think that was one of the biggest reasons why we wanted to end the show.”
We’ll always have season five. And large clocks.
