Chip and Joanna Gaines are the popular hosts of ‘Fixer Upper’ on HGTV and thus have been the target of many attacks, falsehoods and just incorrect statements that frequently surface on the internet.
Joanna Gaines took to Facebook yesterday to put one of these rumors to rest:

“There have been rumors floating around about me leaving the show to start a skincare/makeup line. I wanted to take a minute to let y’all know that it’s simply not true. This is a SCAM!” Gaines said emphatically.

Not this universe, that’s for sure.
This rumor has been floating out there for some time, and the pair tried to swat it down back then in a blog post.
“We’ve heard it all” Joanna said at the time, explaining they’ve seen internet claims that they’re moving out of Waco in favor of Las Vegas, to even allegations they don’t actually have four children. “You can’t believe everything you read” she wrote.
The rumor first started earlier this spring. At the time, Joanna wrote a blog post shooting it down.
“No! I am not getting into the business of facial creams. And No! We are not expecting baby #5. And no worries, believing some of these stories happens to the best of us,” she added.
She finished her post yesterday by asking for your help.
