Dwyane Wade, wife Gabrielle Union, to have home-flipping show on HGTV


Home-flipping/renovation shows are the bread-and-butter of HGTV — you know, that station your mom watches. “Flip or Flop,” “Property Brothers,” and the like are big hits and the network is spinning off multiple versions of that model.

Enter Heat All-Star Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union — they are getting their own home flipping show, a celebrity spin on model, the network announced. Here is the description from their press release announcing the network’s fall lineup.

Actress Gabrielle Union and Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade are beginning a passion project – flipping homes. Follow along as they renovate, revitalize and resell a home in a suburban Florida neighborhood.

Dwyane Wade tweeted this would be his summer workout plan (his brand workout play, at least), but played the show down a little when Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel asked him about it.

“We’ll see how it goes,” Wade said before Wednesday night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center. “It depends on kind of if it’s going to start off as an episode. But it depends on if we want to cut it up, if we want to make a series out of it. All that stuff is still going to be finalized at a later date. But right now we’re green-lighted to get our show going….

“It’s just our love for HGTV,” he said. “We watch it all the time. We’re big fans of all them guys. So we had an opportunity because of our passion of the show and it went from there. It’s something fun and something that we both are excited to take on this summer at some point. So it’ll be cool.”

The house to be flipped has yet to be picked, but Wade said he and his wife would have to do this over the summer when he was off from the team. Wade is also a free agent this summer.

Finally, a show you and your mom can sit down and watch together. Well, besides Game of Thrones.

The only thing that gets flipped is when D-Whistle gets touched.

Whatever happened to that comedy drama TV show that he was pitching, where he was going to showcase the trials and tribulations of being a great father and NBA star?

That concept tested my gag reflex.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Are Your Newest HGTV Stars With New Special All-Star Flip

HGTV just landed themselves one hell of a new house-flipping married couple.

The cable network has announced that Gabrielle Union and her NBA champ husband Dwyane Wade are teaming up and taking a break from their day jobs to complete a major home transformation in the upcoming special All-Star Flip. In the special, airing Thursday, April 12, fans of the couple will see them showcase their love for home renovation as they buy, overhaul and flip a fixer upper in an up-and-coming Miami neighborhood.

"Ever since we renovated our house a few years ago, I've been a little real-estate obsessed," Union said in a statement. "It took a while, but I finally convinced Dwyane that we should try flipping a house."

"And we're doing it to raise money for charity," Wade added. "So how could I say no?"

As described by HGTV, All-Star Flip will see Union—who also has a pilot in contentionat NBC, a spinoff of film franchise Bad Boys co-starring Jessica Alba—and Wade join forces with their construction team to gut an outdated ranch house while adding square footage and value to the property with a grand second-story master suite. They'll work to transform the home into a sleek, modern showplace. And the cherry on top? The proceeds of the sale will go to a charity of the couple's choice. As Wade said, how can you say no to that?

Will you tune in to see the couple try their hand at home renovation? And could you see them becoming permanent fixtures on the network? They do need a high-profile couple to replace Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines, after all... Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below!

All-Star Flip premieres Thursday, April 12 at 9:30 p.m. on HGTV.

I love HGTV, but I'm not sure how I can relate to DWade and Gabby flipping homes. Maybe they need to go over the top and do it like ballers and movie stars do.

Their mission statement: "We take the most run down home in the most expensive neighborhood and we turn it into the biggest and baddest crib in South Florida."

Gabrielle during the floor plan review with client:
"Okay, with your all in budget, we have 3 million dollars left, so I have additional options that you can choose from, an 2000 sq ft underground wine cellar, a third heated and air-conditioned 3-car garage for a total of 9 cars, or a big LED sign with your jersey number over your private entrance."
