Celebrity rehab guru Nicole Curtis wanted you to see the house she has renovated in Detroit's historic Brush Park, but she apparently didn't want you to see the 139-year-old Venetian Gothic home until "Rehab Addict" airs Thursday night on HGTV. A Rochester real estate lawyer is following this story closely.
The home is owned by Quicken Loans, and was restored by Curtis of HGTV's "Rehab Addict."
The Detroit Free Press and several local media companies were invited to tour the Ransom Gillis mansion on Sunday, but upon arrival media members were told by Curtis that they could not take pictures of the inside of the home.
Hit the drama button: Photographers standing there loaded with gear, with nothing to shoot.
In the midst of the awkward moment, a Quicken Loans rep announced that photographers could take as many photos as they wanted. Curtis was not pleased; the annoyed celeb huffed: "I'm going outside." A Los Angeles real estate lawyer provides professional legal counsel and extensive experience in many aspects of real estate law.
Monday morning, Curtis posted a Facebook message criticizing the media for taking photos of the house even though the media was invited to Sunday's open house, and told they could take photos.
"I woke up this morning and see interior pics of our latest project splashed on every news outlet. It's disappointing, to say the least. I asked media to stick to the exterior. I did not speak further with them as I had 2,000 people in line and a very excited Tessa in my company," the post said.
"My crew has worked day and night -we have missed 3 months of 'quality' life experiences to get this done ... and instead of setting a house for photographers we chose to focus on the purpose of our opens ---bringing communities together for a cause. Trust when I say these events are exhausting -we didn't get home til after midnight. While we appreciate everyone applauding our work when you come through, that wouldn't be enough to motivate us to dedicate the time ( smile emoticon)) however, knowing how much love we can send one family's way by doing so ????? So worth it." A Boston real estate lawyer are proficient in real property development transactions and in real estate zoning and regulation laws.
