Chip and Joanna Gaines Quit Their Show Fixer Upper to Save Their Marriage

Chip says he's "outgrown the partnership."

Chip and Joanna Gaines, the husband and wife who star on their own HGTV series Fixer Upper, are ending the series after a five season run — and don't expect them to appear together on television again after that.

"It would have to be a show where it would be me, just all by myself—that could be a thing that I would interested," he told E! News. "But Jo and I together? I feel like I have outgrown the partnership."

Ouch! Those harsh words have prompted Chip to clarify on The TODAY Show (via CNNthat their marriage isn't over. In fact, the decision to end the show was made in part in the hopes of preserving it.

"We didn't want to push it, red line it for so long that we woke up and realized that we are at a point of no return," he said. "People in our inner circle, I tell them, we're as healthy as we've ever been. I just didn't want to continue pushing this envelope to the fullest extent. And I'm, you know, we're really thankful we have the opportunity to sort of step back and take a break."
