Ben and Erin Napier Open Up About Their Surprising Journey to HGTV Fame

  • Erin Napier, a graphic designer, and her husband Ben Napier, a former church minister, are now the stars of HGTV’s Home Town series.
  • In a recent interview, the couple shared that they “never expected” to be famous.

    Ben and Erin Napier are living proof that dreams —even the ones you didn’t know you had —really do come true.

    One of HGTV’s hottest power couples may seem like old pros at home renovation, but before launching their hit show Home Town in 2017, the couple had zero formal experience in construction or home design—and zero aspirations of being famous.

    As yet-to-be-discovered newlyweds, Erin and Ben say they “didn’t have a dime to waste” as they lovingly transformed a 1925 craftsman cottage in Laurel, Mississippi, into the home of their dreams.

    “Since I was a kid, I had always wanted to live in it,” Erin tells People in a new interview.

    All Rise ‘s Simone Missick Reveals What It Was Like to Film the Season Finale From Her Own Home

    Tonight, All Rise follows in Parks and Recreation‘s footsteps, sort of.

    Where Parks returned after five years for a special, all video-chat episode made to raise money for Feeding America and to generally uplift a few spirits, the freshman CBS drama is actually offering us a season finale that both fits in with the current season and offers a look into the current reality of the Los Angeles judicial system and of all of Los Angeles. We’re all staying home, and so are the characters of All Rise, though the work doesn’t stop. 

    And while there won’t be any mental health PSAs or performances of “5,000 Candles in the Wind” in this quarantine-made episode, there’s still something incredibly comforting about seeing fictional characters living their lives as normally as possible in the same way we’re all trying to do that right now. 

    There is, of course, also something

    Birthdays, Holidays, and More at Home: Ways to Celebrate

    For those seeking a useful way to spend their time during social distancing—or anyone simply interested in forging a deeper connection with their homes—HB has launched Home Love, a series of daily tips and ideas to make every minute indoors more productive (and gratifying!).

    It was my birthday last month, which seemed like a good excuse to slip into an A-line dress and put on earrings, a luxury I hadn’t partaken of in more than five weeks of low ponytails and yoga pants, thanks to social distancing. I made a chocolate-sour cream Bundt cake that my boyfriend and I devoured in 48 hours, and we had a virtual dinner with friends who were just a 20-minute walk away, eating mezze delivered to us from the same Mediterranean restaurant in our respective Budapest apartments. I wasn’t on a planned trip to Norway, as I had hoped to be, but I
