be able to say and show that life does go on was pretty special.” On how he likes spending the holidays.
It’s the fact that somebody took the time to do it.
I could have jeopardized the lives of others and I am grateful there was no accident or harm done to anyone.
Pennington put himself through college - where he earned a degree in graphic design - by working as a carpenter, only to be enticed into the world of modeling.taught me is that as an artist, what you create with your hands has a lasting difference and actually makes someone’s life better,” he says of the show. Pennington says that after Monday’s show, there aren’t any plans for future episodes. When you’re on that show, you’re literally traveling every three days. He has a really strong connection with the family that we helped, who was a burn victim. I have a very funny family with a really strong sense of humor, so to spend time with them is a lot of fun. It’s the Christmas disasters that are the ones you remember the most and I love that, whether it’s a cat jumping into a tree, knocking it over, and turning it into a small house fire that you have to put out, or the dogs urinating all over the presents.“It’s something that I’ll always be proud of.” The series recently returned for four special holiday episodes, the last of which airs tonight on ABC and features a military family and celebrity guest J. Everything is on hold until you can get back to it. I look forward to that.” On the best gifts he’s received.“My New Year’s resolution is to slow down to the point that I can enjoy life and spend time with people that mean the most to me: my mom, my brother, and the friends that I’m really close to never spend enough time with because I’m always working.In the long run, it’s the personalities that you surround yourself with that really make you who you are, and when your work takes you away from that, you can get lost on exactly what your identity is. And I'm not even being coy, so get your mind out of the gutter.Only this morning, it's all of 20-something outside, and I get a text from my own legitimately cute husband that it's 50-something inside. She loved her husband - great guy, smart guy, legitimately cute — but was secretly frustrated that he wasn't handy. My dad, who's a man, has about one thousand tools in his garage and I guarantee he's used each one for something useful at least twice. It's not like the hot construction worker trope isn't already out there — from kind-of-sketchy Ty Pennington to kind-of-conservative Mike Rowe.After appearing in dozens of print ads and television commercials, Pennington joined the series "Trading Spaces" (TLC, 2000-08), as one of the home remodeling show's regular carpenters.A few years later, producers invited him to host "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" (ABC, 2003-12), a philanthropic home improvement series that began as a spin-off from "Extreme Makeover" (ABC, 2002-07).Terry Gross, the NPR host, was another person I always assumed was gay. Thought for sure he was gay but the man was married to his first wife for 50 years (until her death) and then, at 75, married a woman 50 years younger than him and fathered 2 children with her before his death 9 years later. So imagine my surprise when late in the interview he mentions his wife of forty-something years. Well I have to add him to the list I had in my original post. Anyone got the "Straight" Dope on ol' Barry Manilow??? ) that he has been married to a woman for many years, and while he played gay bars a lot when his career was just starting out, he was personally full-on hetro, even though he was often identified with gay culture...........She just has that stereotypical lesbian appearance and demeanor. I have to say I was surprised to learn today that Evan Lysacek, who just won the gold medal in Men's Figure Skating, is dating gymnast Nastia Liukin. I was shocked to hear the words "my wife" come out of his mouth, much less the fact that they've been married that long. I think there were some Cheever-esque rumors of his making clumsy drunken passes at guys, but nothing confirmed. He mentioned his wife in an episode recently, which made me do a spit-take. I could have sworn that I'd heard years ago that Jason Alexander (George on Seinfeld) was gay.
