Truly, the best way to make an HGTV fan’s dreams come true is to enlist one of the network’s heavy hitters to remodel their home. Right now, Jennifer Lopez is absolutely living that dream, because after a recent FaceTime meet-and-greet, Joanna Gaines is going to help Lopez remodel her home in Malibu. Can you even believe?
As reported by Entertainment Tonight, Gaines did a walkthrough with Lopez at Lopez and partner Alex Rodriguez’s Malibu, California property on Friday, reportedly so that Gaines could get a feel for what Lopez wants to do with the space.
“Joanna is going to help Jennifer remodel her home,” a source told ET. “Jennifer wanted to walk the space with Joanna in person, so they did so on Friday. They’re both extremely busy, but it’s hard to do something like that without seeing the space.”
Interestingly, the first meeting between Lopez and Gaines was filmed, though ET’s source said it wasn’t for a specific project.
“It was really just an opportunity for them to walk the space together and for Joanna to hear Jennifer’s vision for the space. There truly is no formal plan for any of the footage, but could possibly end up on the Gaines’ new network,” they claimed.
During a February appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Lopez first revealed the exciting news about working with Gaines. “We got a little fixer upper next to the water, and we were like, ‘Oh, we gotta fix this up, it’s really a house that needs work,’” Lopez told DeGeneres. “I was like, wouldn’t it be amazing to have [Gaines] do it for us? But she doesn’t do anything outside of Waco, like nothing.”

Then she revealed that Rodriguez asked her to chat with an architect about fixing up the house. “He opens up FaceTime, and it’s Joanna Gaines. And I was like, ‘Are you kidding?! Hi!’ I totally fangirled out. And she was like, ‘Hi,’ just like she is on the show.”
At the time, Lopez told DeGeneres, “She’s like, ‘I don’t do things… but I will help you with this or that or whatever.’ And I was like, ‘Yes, just help me! Just a little bit! You don’t even have to come out here. I know you have the baby. How’s the baby?’ It was amazing… That was an awesome moment.”
It looks like the stars aligned on this project, allowing Gaines and Lopez to do a proper walk-through in Malibu together. Although there is no concrete plan for the footage of their meeting, we do hope we get to see it someday, if only because this is a friendship that we’d love to get even a tiny glimpse of in motion.
