Update: Jan. 10, 2017, 11 a.m. PT: Ahead of their next court date later this month, Rehab Addict‘s Nicole Curtis took to Facebook to slam her ex and open up about the “terror” of not being able to see her son all the time.
Alongside a photo taken during a European vacation with her other son, Ethan, Curtis wrote, “It’s bittersweet as this Christmas I had E; however, my other mini-me was not with us. We are headed home (wherever that is) tomorrow and for one day and night, I will have both my babies under one roof.”
She continued, “The terror I feel knowing that this is our life right now, constant separation is real. My wonderful (sarcastic) ex significant other commented that I looked haggard the other day–my response was what mother wouldn’t after all this-it’s unnatural to be separated from growing children-(not just my opinion, but science -my body goes into withdrawals.”
There’s clearly something in the water at HGTV right now, because the stars from that network’s shows are bringing all of the drama lately.
Most recently it’s Rehab Addict star Nicole Curtis’ turn. Curtis is embroiled in a nasty, yearlong (so far) custody battle with her ex, and she announced last week that with everything going on in her personal life, she didn’t know if she’d be able to return to HGTV for Rehab Addict‘s eighth season.
She seems to have figured things out, though, and will be returning to the show, she announced on Instagram.
“Yes, don’t call it a comeback,” she wrote alongside a promo shot for the show. “I’ve just been taking my sweet time doing what needed to be done. My guys and I are ready to rock it . No bs, you know how we do it.”
She also announced the news on Facebook.
Curtis gave birth to her son, Harper Curtis-Maguire, in 2015, and has been battling his father, Shane Maguire, for custody ever since. They’re still making regular court appearances; their next scheduled court date is later this month.
The battle has gotten nasty at times. At one point, Maguire asked a judge to force Curtis to submit to a psychological evaluation, but the judge decided at the time that the evaluation wasn’t necessary. Since then, a judge has ordered both parents to work with their lawyers and each other to come up with a three-month parenting plan.
