A few weeks ago I blogged about John Gidding, the uber hot host of HGTV’s Curb Appeal: The Block where he and a team of landscapers, carpenters and other save homeowners from their funky, overgrown, dried out, crab grass lawns and turns their yard (and their neighbors yards) into works of landscaping art. Turns out he’s not just a great designer. He’s also a former romance novel cover model–he modeled to pay for school. Well, Gidding emailed me yesterday, “Your posting was forwarded to me, and I had to respond. first of all, THANK YOU for the very kind words. I happen to have a mean swing with a bush whacker,” he wrote. And he sent photos of his romance covers. Including The Convenient Bride and The Rake’s Revenge. Thanks so much John!
