The Gloom Has Got to Go

Jillian and Grant Reynolds live in Tarzana, California with their two young children Ruby and Rocco. The marriage of a television celebrity and former Marine Sniper has hit a rough patch...

Entering their house Jeff encounters "the biggest television I have ever seen." The house he describes as large and gothic, which he says makes him uneasy. Jillian tells him she is responsible for the decorating and Jeff says, "You and Count Dracula." Also maybe some girlfriends and a gay guy. Jeff is uncomfortable in general with the decor and all the crosses on the walls push him over the edge.

Grant has been a house husband for five of their six years of married life. Jillian is the breadwinner and owned the house and most of its contents several years prior to their marriage.

I don't feel Grant is represented at all in the home. It does not feel like a family friendly space. It has not changed since Jillian was single in LA.

After 20 years on a local Fox morning news program, Jillian declares, "I quit on Thursday." This family is doing a fast one eighty. Grant will be the breadwinner and plans to work under contract in the Middle East. "Sniper to diaper back to Sniper" says Jillian.

Jeff was brave doing Jillian & Grant's house in Tarzana! Jeff is soooo honest..he says what the rest only think about. I think Jillian will always be self centered Jillian! The house will only bring a few mins of calm...because Jillian needs to be front & center 24/7.. Grant has worked as a house husband & daycare daddy for the last 5 yrs....and still she says..What have you done for me lately like in the recent 60 mins...I see the gloom & doom clouds still hovering over this place......and divorce is knocking on the door!

Wow, just wow! I guess this will come as no surprise to those of you that watched the episode, but I watched the episode again this afternoon, and sent Jillian a tweet about it.  This was her response to me:

 

"Your opinion should matter because? P.S. F--- off!"  and yes, she spelled the word out.

I love Bravo even more now, because watching Jeff 's new show gave me the news I had been waiting for...Good Day LA finally got rid of that annoying witch Jillian...I couldn't stand her,I finally had to stop watching it completely. Seeing her on Jeff's new show made me dislike her even more...Jeff nailed it on the head...it is the "jillian show" 24/7 in her mind.  I Good Day LA when a guest would come on the show she never let them speak, it was all about her all the time. Everything I suspected about her was proven to be true...she is selfish and self centered. I can't believe she wants full custody of children she can't even put to bed without the help of the Nanny. The husband who has been filling the mommy role should get custody...the children probably are more bonded with him. Now maybe I can give Good Day LA another shot

As soon as I watched this episode, I thought they would be divorced in 6 months.

I wonder if Jeff knows how very fortunate he is to have Jenni?  She is his confident, friend, assistant, and all around gofer.  But, she always does it with a smile.  She has such a happy fantastic outlook on life.  I hope that Jeff absorbs some of her lightness.  I adore Jenni.

Although I appreciate Grant talking very, very briefly about gun safety, it would have been helpful if the show had taken the opportunity to be less silly about guns and had initiated a little discussion about gun safety in the home, especially when children are present.  Over 40% of homes with children in America have guns, many unlocked and loaded.  Every year thousands of children are killed or seriously injured as a result.  This year alone over 40 children under the age of 12 have been killed in accidental shootings.  Perhaps your excellent interior design show will consider doing a public safety announcement ... starring you, Jeff, Grant, and Jillian.

Jennie, you crack me up and love, love, love Jeff!  Love the show, love your team and this house turned out great!  To bad the marriage could not be salvaged, I hear they split up in March of this year.....  It was obvious something more was going on based on Jeff's comments, so I looked it up.  That's sad, but at least the house looks great!!

Jeff called it. This episode was filmed in September and Jillian filed for divorce in September 2013. Oh, and she wants custody of the kids. What a self absorbed controlling mess she is. Run Grant run.

Jenni absolutely adore you! Loved this show I've watched Jillian for years, I saw the house in another show they did. Something about house husbands I think! Jeff was right serious remodel much needed, it turned out beautiful absolutely stunning! It's great to watch the show again, you all are missed when on hiatus....

I wanted to say how much I love all of you that make up this show!  Jeff, for coming off as a grouch, really has a lot of insight, tenderness and kindness.... don't tell him, his ego may explode!  I would give anything to experience what you have done for the people of your shows!  What a life changing experience.  Love it!!!   Raeshelle

 @MargotB Guns weren't in the home unlocked around kids. Go push your preachy agenda somewhere else.

 I'm surprised Grant lasted this long.  Not only is Jillian obnoxious, she's a complete narcissist.
