Between her TV Show on “Food Network” to her cookbooks to the Pillsbury Bake-Off to being a busy mother of four, Ree Drummond says she understands and fully respects Chip and Joanna Gaines‘ decision to leave their hit HGTV show, “Fixer Upper.” In fact, she thinks the move was smart.
“I completely respect their decision to do that. I think it was really smart,” Ree said in an interview with People. “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.”
Chip and Joanna continue to remain open and honest in their reasoning behind leaving the show. In their first round of TV interviews since the announcement of the show’s ending, Chip and Joanna shared (again) that family is always going to come first.
“The most important thing in the world is our relationship, followed very quickly by these four beautiful kids, and we didn’t want to push it and red line it for so long that we wake up one day and realize we’re at a point of no return,” Chip told Savannah Guthrie on “Today.”
The final season of “Fixer Upper” will air on HGTV on November 28, and the couple has said it’s their best season yet as it includes some of their favorite projects, like a renovation for Jo’s sister and her family of 7.
