The Haunting Truth About Some Homes On HGTV's Good Bones
Lifestyle News
The stars of HGTV's "Good Bones," Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen Laine, aren't afraid to keep it real when discussing some of the experiences they have had on their hit show. From freaky to disgusting, the mother-daughter duo shared some memorable events in a joint interview with Pop Culture.
"We had a cool […] creepy incident at one house," Starsiak Hawk recalled, in which a bunch of the crew got hurt in Season 6. In Season 3, a voodoo doll in the attic of an old property they were redoing mysteriously went missing right when it was time for the money shot, much to everybody's confusion.
Everything viewers see on the show is 100% real, as Starsiak Hawk made clear in an interview with People — the one demand they have for producers is no manufactured drama whatsoever. Fortunately, they don't ever have to create anything, with Laine casually confirming, "Poltergeists happen."
The most disgusting thing the team finds in many houses is, shockingly, poop. Starsiak Hawk revealed, "There's so much poop. ... Human and animal poop." Her mom, Karen Laine, acknowledged it's sometimes better if a property has endured a fire since, typically, "it's burned some of the poop."
