Joanna Gaines to take on Jennifer Lopez's fixer upper
Joanna Gaines of HGTV's "Fixer Upper" fame has a new and very well-known client. Gaines will be helping with a remodel of Jennifer Lopez's $6.6 million Malibu beach mansion, reports E! News.
Lopez appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last month, talking about how she had hoped Gaines would work her shiplap magic on a beach property Lopez had purchased.
"We actually got a little fixer upper next to the water and we were like, 'Oh we gotta fix this up.' It's really a house that needs work," Lopez told DeGeneres. "I was like, 'Wouldn't it be amazing to have (Joanna Gaines) do it for us?' But she doesn't do anything outside of Waco. Like, nothing."
But Lopez's boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, surprised her for their second anniversary by getting Gaines on board. Lopez and Gaines were seen checking out the property last week, followed closely by TV cameras.
It's not the only major project Gaines has right now. Gaines and her husband Chip Gaines recently purchased a Waco castle built in 1890 known as the "Cottonland Castle," and Joanna Gaines is releasing a children's book called "We Are the Gardeners" later this month.
