Chip and Joanna Gaines, the husband-and-wife duo behind HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” appeared on Thursday’s “Today” show to talk about the success of their home improvement reality show, divorce rumors and more. Watch the full video below!

The popular program, which is in its fourth season, has made stars out of its Texan hosts, Chip and Joanna. With fame, however, comes a slew of unfounded rumors, and the couple explained during their interview how they’ve adapted to life in the spotlight. “It’s funny, when I think about these circumstances, I think they’re hilarious,” Chip said. “I can’t believe these things happen to us, because part of me thinks, ‘Who would care about that?'”

“For me, even from the beginning, because I don’t do great with seeing that kind of stuff and reading into it, I just don’t know what’s going on,” Joanna said of tabloid divorce rumors. She added, “Then, I’ll hear someone come up to me and say, ‘I hear you and Chip are getting a divorce.’ I’m like, ‘Where did you hear that?’ I don’t know any of this is going on. We do our due diligence in letting people know, as much as we can, this isn’t us, so don’t be scammed.”

Chip and Joanna went on to talk about their new and exciting partnership with Target. They’re set to launch their own home and lifestyle brand, Hearth & Hand with Magnolia, within the major retailer in November. When asked how he will react when their affordable products are on sale, Chip joked, “I’m going to fan-girl.” For Joanna’s part, she said, “Fifteen years later, it does feel like I still have the heart of that girl in that little shop who had this dream that’s blossomed into all this. It still feels like a complete dream.” Watch the full “Today” show interview below!
