I've done so many dumb things in my day that I had enough material to write a book…so I did! Coming this fall: Capital Gaines – Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff | You know you want to read this, so head to the link in my profile to learn more. More updates to come – including the official book cover. #CapitalGaines
His wife and co-star, Joanna Gaines, promises fans that the book will chronicle his rise to HGTV fame, along with stories of his “craziest antics and the lessons learned along the way.”
Who knows whether those “craziest antics” will include the scandals he’s brought to HGTV, like when he and his wife came under fire for attending a church with a pastor who was openly homophobic or that time (only a month ago!) he was sued by his former business partners for fraud. The former partners claim the Gaineses duped them into selling their part in their home renovation company just before they landed a show on HGTV, which made the company suddenly far more profitable. That dispute still hasn’t been settled.
For now, we’ll just make do with all the current drama going on at HGTV and hope that Gaines’ book gives up a behind-the-scenes look at more of the network’s dirty laundry.
