‘Property Brothers’ Drew And Jonathan Scott Use Controversial Design In Recent Renovation

Property Brothers stars used a controversial design in one of the latest episodes of their hit realty reality show, and it’s definitely a move that some interior designers absolutely hate. Though it was specifically requested by the homeowner, this particular design is bound to divide fans on either side of the issue. It also brings to mind the recent lawsuit filed against the owners of the show and contractors about a failed renovation that left the homeowners stuck in a home with misaligned baseboards and peeling paint, among a bevy of other complaints. 

Drew, Jonathan Scott Commit Design ‘No-No’

Jonathan and Drew Scott employed quite the controversial technique to satisfy a homeowner’s request in a recent episode of their popular realty series Property Brothers. In season 5’s episode “Heart of the Family,” Drew and Johnathan met Josefina, who wanted to turn her home into the ultimate family gathering place for her two grown daughters as well as her sister, who is in a wheelchair. 

Before the brothers worked their magic, Josefina’s home featured rooms that were on different levels from each other, requiring the family to install ramps in order for her sister’s wheelchair to be able to navigate between rooms. The home also featured a stone fireplace, with a TV mounted to the wall beside it. Josefina wasn’t crazy about the stone feature, since it kept her from mounting the TV above the fireplace as she desired.

Many designers have shied away from this sort of thing, but the Scott twins instantly got on board with the plan. Anything to make the homeowner happy, right? The first order of business was to replace the floors of the home, making them perfectly level between rooms so Josefina’s sister could easily make her way around the house, no ramps required. The brothers also removed the stones surrounding the fireplace and installed a pale wooden mantle above it to match the wood floors that Josefina was so crazy about.

‘Property Brothers’ Already Under Fire From Past Homeowners

Just like Josefina wanted, the TV was dutifully mounted over the fireplace, which is a bit of an ironic placement considering the trouble contractors for the show have gotten into recently over allegedly faulty workmanship. Homeowners who had previously appeared on Property Brothers filed a lawsuit against Cineflex, which owned the show until 2019 when it was bought by Scott Brothers Entertainment, as well as the contractors involved in the renovation. 

The homeowners claimed they’d abandoned plans for going on a honeymoon in order to afford to be able to go on the show. The couple wired a jaw dropping $193,000 to Cineflex in 2018 after responding to the show’s casting call. After appearing on the program, the couple complained of stuck doors, misaligned baseboards, peeling paint, and improperly installed plugs, which is just the tip of the iceberg of their claims. What does the lawsuit have to do with this recent design choice? Well, one of the reasons that people avoid hanging TVs over fireplaces is undeniably practical, and is best summed up by this tweet. 

Heat plus plastic is generally a losing combination. Throw in all the delicate electronics inside a TV, and you’ve practically got a disaster waiting to happen. Hopefully, due diligence was performed to ensure that nothing bad will happen to Josefina’s TV, but since the request came directly from her, something tells us she’s prepared to deal with the consequences.

Jennifer Lawrence Pregnant? Report Says She Has ‘Dream Baby On Board’

Jennifer Lawrence Pregnant? Report Says She Has ‘Dream Baby On Board’

Jennifer Lawrence has been relatively out of the spotlight since getting married to Cooke Maroney in 2019. However, the duo couldn’t escape one rumor that follows many recently wedded young celebrity couples around. Last year, a tabloid claimed the J. Law was about to become J. Ma, with the supposed appearance of a baby bump. Gossip Cop is investigating the story.

Will J. Law Soon Become J. Ma?

Lawrence was spotted walking around New York City last June wearing a tight dress with a slight bulge clearly visible from the photograph. Woman’s Day indicated then that the Hunger Games actress must have been pregnant. Using a secret source, the magazine tried to have its story corroborated. “There’s no doubt she’s got her dream baby on board. She’s wanted kids ever since she drooled over Amy’s [Schumer] baby — and she wants a boy, too,” the insider spilled. 

Apparently, the couple had been trying to get pregnant since “they got married in October, but COVID-19 has given her the perfect opportunity to properly nest with Cooke,” becoming sober and “very health-conscious” during her pregnancy. “It would be just like Jen to do something like this. She’s been baby-mad for a very long time, and what better gift to give her and Cooke – a family!” the source concluded.

Is Jennifer Lawrence Pregnant? 

The outlet reported that Lawrence was supposed to deliver her baby by Christmas 2020. Obviously, that did not happen. When Joe Biden was announced to be the next President of the United States, a very not-pregnant Lawrence was filmed running and screaming down the street in celebration. At that point, she should have been close to nine months along and would not have been able to skip down the New York City sidewalk. 

What occurred with this story happens a lot to actresses who get the occasional bad photo taken of them.  Lawrence was rocking a slight bump in a tight dress when an unflattering photo was taken of her. Unless she or her camp breaks the news themselves, these kinds of stories can be dangerous. She could have been pregnant this time a year ago but then lost the baby for medical reasons. She could have gained a bit of weight during quarantine as many people did. At the end of the day, running these types of stories promotes sexism and body shaming. 

This is not the first time Woman’s Day ran such an article about the American Hustle star being pregnant. Two months prior to the publication of this story, the outlet claimed Lawrence was pregnant with a little boy and even revealed the news to close friends at a dinner party. Gossip Cop busted the story by pointing out no one was having birthday dinner parties during the pandemic, and with no baby for the couple, we were right.
