Love It or List It has been a mainstay on HGTV since its inception in 2008. Yet, new reports from The National Enquirer are putting its future in question as Hilary Farr embarks on her own show, Tough Love with Hilary Farr, according to Gossip Cop.
The outlet shared The Nation Enquirer’s claims that Farr’s co-host, David Visentin was left “blindsided.”
“Hilary’s new show is basically the same one she and David have been doing for years, with him edited out,” Gossip Cop reported a source saying. It added that he was “hurt and angry – especially because Love It or List It hasn’t been renewed yet.”
However, fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Deadline reported Farr will continue in her current role when her new one launches. In fact, HGTV announced on April 8 that Love It or List It will return for 18 hour-long episodes.
As Farr quipped on Instagram, “I know you’re just going to LOVE IT.”
Love It or List It sees its hosts at odds – Visenti looks for a new house to better meet a family’s needs while Farr renovates their current home to achieve their goals. In the end, the families have to answer, “Are you going to love it or list it?”
