When it comes to HGTV's Love It or List It, the premise is pretty simple: People have to decide if they want to stay in their current house or sell it. The choice itself may seem like an easy one, but there's so much that goes into making a home truly yours, and memories can make you want to stay. But sometimes people just want to move, or they feel like the renovations aren't enough to stick around for — and they choose to sell.

For 17 seasons, interior designer Hilary Farr — who's got decades of experience in her back pocket — was the one on the show who handled all the renovations. Though she announced her exit from the series in December 2023, she's got a ton of other projects going on — and a large net worth to show for it.

And in 2021, she launched another HGTV show — Tough Love with Hilary Farr — about working alongside families who need some "tough love" when it comes to making improvements in their homes.

Ahead of its premiere, we talked to Hilary about the show, which she said "[goes] deeper in terms of emotional elements."

As she explained exclusively to Distractify at the time: "We can get in some sticky areas. If something is happening that is very emotional, we can actually really dig layers into that. On my show, we also had fun being able to really have me spread my wings and explore and share things that I love to do and things that I've never done."
