HGTV has been on a casting streak for casting good looking, strapping hetero hunks like Property Brothers & Holmes on Homes. I guess they know their demographic well (lots of straight women & gays) ....but maybe they don't know. Because how could they have cast these 2 guys who are major haters?! In this age of social media and google search, did HGTV just think audiences would be blinded by man eye candy and ignore that they are anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-Muslim extremists?! You won't believe what the Benham brothers have said and done!
HGTV Cans "Flip It Forward" Show Whose Stars Really Really, & We Mean Really, Hate Gays, Muslims & Abortions!
I just got some amazing press for my cute Bungalow for sale on 804-57th St, NOBE. HGTV's Front Door interviews me about how I transformed this plain jane property into a gem with just some quick and easy tips.
I teamed up with my fabulous stager Cora Sue Anthony, Star of Real Estate Intervention to work our magic! She is the only one who has a bigger personality than me. LOL!
Excerpt is below. Or read the full article. But you MUST check out the dramatical before and after photos!
For this home, he and Cora brightened the walls. "Gray is very hot now, so is off-white: it brightened the space." The previous owners had used different colors throughout, which "compartmentalized everything," says Chan. "When you have too many blocks of color, it's like a dress with horizontal stripes. It does a small space no favors."
As I mentioned a few months ago, I got my fabulous buyers a free renovation on a new HGTV show called Power Brokers. It stars Mike Aubrey (Real Estate Intervention) & Juan Barbieri (The Bachelorette). It finally aired tonight. Hope you enjoyed my little appearance!
HGTV's House Hunters Int'l Spotlights Gay Couple Exiled Abroad Due to USA's Unfair Immigration/Gay Marriage Policy
A few times a year another House Hunters expose surfaces. It's the same complaint; it's staged, it's phony, it's scripted. (But honey, 70%-80% of reality TV is fake! Just ask the Bachelor creator!) For some reason this latest complaint first seen on Hooked on Houses got picked up by lots of media outlets. This is gettin' old, folks! Let's revisit my prior post from Jan 29, 2012: So Tired of These "Is House Hunters Real or Fake" Articles! It's HGTV, Not PBS!
Real Estate TV's New Power Couple? Nah, it's just Cora Sue Anthony & Herman Chan!
I had an absolute blast tonite with my gal pal & stager extraordinaire Cora Sue Anthony. She just finished staging a $1.5M mid-century property by Janette Licata for Better Homes & Garden Real Estate. My old friend and HGTV hottie Ahmed Hassan did his landscaping magic. There is so much TV star power behind this listing, LOL! Best memory of the party: Cora Sue & me belting out a duet to Diana Ross' Love Hangover!
Cora Sue is the unforgettable sassy star of Real Estate Intervention on HGTV. Catch her show Wednesdays 10:30am. Her decor tips are also plastered all over HGTV's monthly magazine. And on top of all that, she still has a thriving staging business at AnthonyStaging.com. Work it, girl!

How Much For That Igloo? HGTV's House Hunters International Goes to the Arctic!

I really enjoyed this episode of HGTV's #1 rate show House Hunters. I got to help my friend & her hubby find a new home in San Francisco. Not only did we go to high school together, she and I also studied abroad together in France! Mon Dieu, I was a hot mess back then! I'm glad she didn't hold that against me. LOL!
So pleased these 2 snagged a fabulous tri-level condo in the uber cool DogPatch District. (Check out my favorite restaurant there called Serpentine.) Congrats you two!
If you are looking for a home in San Francisco Bay Area and want to be on House Hunters with me, please pop me a note!
....none other than my gal pal Cora Sue Anthony! This ball of sunshine is a San Francisco Bay Area based stager extraordinaire and this could not have happened to a better person.
Here we both are at her recent Viewing Party for her show. It was a smash hit! Everyone loved it. In attendance were some HGTV production company people, her contracting/design team, furniture company Sitcom, and tons of fans!
Congrats Cora Sue!
PS: Don't we look so cute in this pic? :-)

Speaking as someone who is no stranger to being on TV, when submitting yourself, be upbeat, animated and memorable. Remember it is about E.S.P (Energy Smile Personality). No one wants to watch a bump on a log, especially on the boob tube.
