After 19 seasons, Hilary Farr, the co-host of the beloved DIY series 'Love It or List It,' has bid farewell to the show. The 72-year-old designer, who has been a staple of the show since its inception in 2008, made the announcement, leaving fans and followers with a bittersweet feeling. Farr's decision to leave the show is driven by her pursuit of new challenges and a desire to seek joy and excitement in her life.
A Journey of Transformation
Farr's tenure on the show was marked by a unique blend of personal and professional evolution. Her journey was punctuated by significant events, such as a divorce and a battle with cancer. Yet, she remained undeterred, using these challenges as stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks. Her resilience saw her triumph over her health struggles, and she is currently in remission after her cancer treatment.
Building Connections and Creating Communities
Throughout her time on the show, Farr formed deep connections, particularly with her co-host, David Visentin. The duo's chemistry was undeniable, shaping the tone and success of 'Love It or List It.' This bond has extended off-screen, with Farr referring to David as family. The designer also expressed her gratitude for the community that the show built and the support she received during her personal trials.
Looking Ahead: New Challenges, New Adventures
With the departure of Farr, the future of 'Love It or List It' hangs in the balance. However, Farr hinted at the possibility of the show scouting for a new co-host. Meanwhile, Farr isn't slowing down. She's directing her creative energies towards her other project, 'Tough Love with Hilary Farr,' which recently wrapped up its second season. In a testament to her adventurous spirit, Farr has plans to construct a tiny house in Italy, marking an exhilarating new chapter in her life.
