The Real Reason Andy And Candis Meredith Were Reinstated On Magnolia Network

"Home Work," which was pulled from Magnolia Network just two days after its debut, is set to return to the network following an investigation of claims that the show was causing more damage than good. Several homeowners set to be featured on the show shared their negative experiences with Andy and Candis Meredith, the designers featured in the show. The Merediths were accused of going significantly over budget, withholding clients' money, damaging properties during renovations, significantly extending timelines, and poor communication, according to People. Magnolia Network temporarily removed the show in light of allegations.

The Merediths responded with a lengthy note posted on their Instagram, where they cite shoddy contractors, communication errors with their team, and other behind-the-scenes issues as the root of the problems. They also air their suspicions around the time of the claims coming out, claiming the one-sided narrative is both unfair and untrue.

Andy and Candis Meredith respond to client's claims

Andy and Candis both released videos on their Instagram, along with an eight-part series of posts defending themselves and their work. Candis stated in her video that she "should have never said these short timelines and set these expectations. That is on me, and I take full responsibility." Candis also denied homeowners reaching out to her, as three have claimed to do. She also stated that she was overwhelmed by the claims all coming out at once and the wave of hate that followed.

The last video in the series shows Candis crying over the hate and bullying her children have been subjected to. "No matter what your opinion, I'm asking the bullying to my kids to stop." She also wrote in the caption, "While preparing these posts, we discovered that our children are being bullied at school...We have received death threats, our home is under police surveillance for our safety."

"Home Work" is set to return to Magnolia Network, with the network's president, Allison Page, telling People, "we do not believe there was ill or malicious intent." She continued, "While "Home Work" will return to Magnolia Network, we recognize the responsibility we have to act on how we can better support not only our talent but those who put their trust in them and this brand." This is likely in response to various dissatisfied homeowners who claimed they trusted the Merediths due to Magnolia's reputation and subsequently felt that trust had been broken.
