Chip Gaines' Wife Joanna Cried Herself to Sleep on Carpet at Their First Home

When making an appearance on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show', the interior design wife of the actor opens up about their first home featuring a carpet bed with no electricity.

AceShowbiz - Appearances can be deceiving. For Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines, it's been a journey from dilapidated college housing to building an empire with Magnolia Network. The couple opened up about the first home they shared after getting married during their appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" on June 17.

Joanna recounted their return from a honeymoon in New York City, where they had splurged on their stay at the Drake Hotel, only to find themselves in a house with no electricity, a carpet bed, and the remnants of indoor pets left behind by previous college student occupants. "We slept on the carpet, and I was very kind and sweet. I did cry myself to sleep. Maybe I am emotional... but who wouldn't? I still remember what that carpet looks like," said Joanna.

Despite this rough start, the Gaineses have built a successful life together, marking 21 years of marriage and home renovations. Reflecting on their journey, Joanna emphasized the importance of home, saying, "That's the thing we're most passionate about. Home is the best place on Earth. And so the fact that we're still doing the very thing that we started with — that never gets old."

In another part of the celebrity world, Christina Applegate is confronting her personal struggles head-on. On the "MeSsy" podcast with Jamie-Lynn Sigler, the actress discussed her battle with depression and multiple sclerosis (MS). After sharing her current state of mind in a June 4 episode, Applegate received an outpouring of support, highlighting the importance of speaking openly about mental health issues.

She reminded listeners that holding in negative feelings gives them power and can harm one's health. Applegate was adamant that it's healing to express one's thoughts, even if it makes others uncomfortable, adding, "By making such a big deal about it you're making other people think, 'Oh, s**t, I can't talk about this.' And that is not OK with me. It's important to be able to say these things."
