wade and union

HGTV has gone for the ratings gusto with this new episode of All Star Flip.

The cable network has announced that Gabrielle Union and her NBA champ husband Dwyane Wade are teaming up and taking a break from their day jobs to complete a major home transformation in the upcoming special All-Star Flip. In the special, airing Thursday, April 12, fans of the couple will see them showcase their love for home renovation as they buy, overhaul and flip a fixer upper in an up-and-coming Miami neighborhood.

“Ever since we renovated our house a few years ago, I’ve been a little real-estate obsessed,” Union said in a statement. “It took a while, but I finally convinced Dwyane that we should try flipping a house.”

“And we’re doing it to raise money for charity,” Wade added. “So how could I say no?”

HGTV, says All-Star Flip will show Union and Wade with a construction team to gut an outdated ranch house while adding square footage and value to the property with a grand second-story master suite. They’ll work to transform the home into a sleek, modern showplace. The proceeds of the sale will go to a charity of the couple’s choice.

Considering their bright personalities and charismatic demeanors I am sure the show will be very engaging and entertaining to watch. Hey, maybe we will see more of them on the network, that would be great!

All-Star Flip premieres Thursday, April 12 at 9:30 p.m. on HGTV.
