say it ain't so sandra...

I've made no secret that I am a Sandra Rinomato fan. I even tried to get us on Property Virgins when we were starting our house hunt. I got so much great insight on home buying from that show. So today is an extra sad day for me.

After turning on Property Virgins and seeing some new woman on the latest episodes, I did some sleuthing (i.e. googling). And it turns out my real estate hero has quit the show. This is her message to fans via her Facebook page:

After 130 episodes and 10 seasons, I have chosen to give up Property Virgins in 
favour of my new show called Buy Herself. We are currently in production for 
HGTV Canada and are scheduled to premier in March 2012. I hope that the show 
will get picked up for the US territory as well,since I have such devoted fans!

I am really excited about the new show as it delves into the very change that is 

happening around us. For the first time in history, a significant number of 
women are buying real estate on their own, taking charge of their financial situations, 
whether they have delayed marriage, decided not to marry, or belong to the 
stat that says 41% of marriages end in divorce. Women buying real estate is not a fad,
 it’s history in the making and I am very proud to be a part of it on TV.

The show is filled with fun and drama, and will entertain and inform.
I can’t wait for you all to see it!
Thanks for your loyalty and all of your incredible comments today and always!

Love to you all,

No offense to the new host, but she doesn't have the same spunk and energy that Sandra does. Here's hoping her new show gets picked up on HGTV US.
