    I was watching this old house & some time I wonder if Bob Viila knows what he is talking about.Its like when your boss comes to the field everyone listen but when he leaves everyone says has he done this before I really think someone tells him what to say.What do you think?

    I have to agree with you.

    I've heard some remodelers say he's an idiot and that many of the products used are crummy, but Vila gets extra $$$$ for using them on the show. So does that make him Poncho Vila?

    TV set

    I was involved in setting up some fireplaces on the set of The Early Show with Jane Clayson(smokin' hot!)for a segment with Danny Lipford about 3 yrs ago. All the hands were saying what world class pricks Bob Villa and Bryant Gumble were. They said Martha Stewart was ok to them. We had to wait for Martha's kitchen to be dismantled in order for us to setup. BTW, the Green Room is Blue. They had mueseli cereal with soy milk--figures for NYC--yuk! Mark McEuwen(sp?), the weather guy was really funny and down to earth, even in his leather trench coat & hat.
    All this was Jan. after 9/11. Couldn't bring an LP tank into the city and we couldn't drive our truck through the tunnels. Had to loop all the way around through lovely Staten Island over the Manhattan Bridge, then zig-zag up to Midtown at Trump Plaza. Had to park the 14ft cube van in front of the hotel 'cause no garage tall enough. The rooms in the Plaza were worse than an Red Roach Inn--what a joke for $450/night.

    All the grips and stage hands were union and didn't want to help us even when the segment producer greased some palms. We were leaving and I needed some water to take some aspirin. The biggest, grouchiest A-hole of them all smiled and handed me an entire case of bottled water! Can't even judge people...

    Bob Villa,

    I think he don't get it myslef. Maybe he does, but he fits the stereotype of a guy like that. But you know, thats the way we true tradesman would see him.

    He is a hit with the general public. We just see him as one of those idiots.

    I enjoy the heck out of Hometime. Now, that guy, he's not afraid to show on "his show" that he makes very good on educating himself before he try's something. They are always using new innovative products and practices. Some of that stuff may be the cheapest crap, but they don't truly not admit to that, because they always make a point to say an alternative more expensive method may suit you better. I always wonder though about, the chicks, He's been through 3 I can remember. Was he ever married to them or even maybe an affair, then it broke off? Sure is weird.

    The log Cabin build shows are the absolutely greatest.

    What I would love to do one day. I got em on CD.

    What's up with Dean and all his "wives"?
    Okay, here's the story. Dean is not now—and never has been—married to any of his co-hosts. He is happily married, however.

    So they just lied to use.
