Fans of Nicole Curtis and her “Rehab Addiction Rescue” Shows were stunned when the designer announced on July 13 that her new series – Rehab Addict Lake House Rescue – would not premiere that night as planned due to a personal health crisis.

Curtis is no stranger to controversy. She is a vocal advocate of preserving historic buildings, even if it means going up against powerful leaders and big developers, and has a very public, Three-year custody battle over her little son. 2021 Curtis went to court – and won — about a run-down house she bought but which the City of Detroit Land Bank claims is not hers rightfully.

Nicole Curtis shares cryptic post about her health and future

Curtis posted a mirror selfie to her Instagram feed, taken in what appears to be a public restroom, with a trolley suitcase behind her.

“Before you search, no shows tonight,” she wrote, referring to her series’ postponement. She continued, “I’ve recently seen my body, physically and mentally, through things I never imagined. I went from shock to awe, happiness to sadness, ok how the hell do I get through the next minute and finally I survived. For all of these reasons, I called and said I was done. Not forever, but until that phase of my life becomes my past.”

Fans and friends rallied around the designer, including fellow HGTV host Jenny Marrs, host of Fixer to Fabulous, who wrote, “Good for you for taking a break and doing what you need to take care of your body! Sarah Baeumler, host of HGTV’s “Renovation Island,” was one of thousands who enjoyed the post.

Curtis took a two-year hiatus from television due to the stresses of a decade of constant filming and remodeling, and returned in January 2021 with the premiere of “Rehab Addict Rescue.”

“I can’t lie and say I’m not nervous about having another show out there,” she said The then People magazine. “I had a very chaotic ten years. I didn’t want to go down this path again. I’m really focused right now on remembering where I want to be, what’s important in my life, what my priorities are.”

In addition to her Instagram post, Curtis attempted to further explain her situation by posting a series of stories that are only viewable on Instagram for 24 hours.

in the the first story In white text on a black background, Curtis wrote: “There are two kinds of people in life – those who pretend it’s not happening and those who weather it until the storm is over. And sadly, when bad things happen, the chasm is painfully obvious. Like eating spaghetti in a white shirt, obviously.” Curtis added three emojis at the end — a face with a raised eyebrow, a blonde woman with her hand in front of her face, and another emoji face crying with laughter.

she second story showed a screenshot of posts she previously shared in October 2021 with a photo of the lake house that was the focus of filming on her postponed show, Rehab Addict Lake House Rescue. Captioning the pic, she wrote, “For those of you asking: we were ready to premiere my lake house shows 3 hour special @hgtv.”

Then she posted an aerial view of a lakeside town, presumably the location of the renovated home – Lake Orion, Michigan – with more text. She wrote, “Anything that could go south did and I commuted from LA every week to do it.”

Next, via a photo of her giving the thumbs-up signal While swimming in a lake, she wrote, “I’m a ‘make the best of it’ person but I reached my limit when…”

She continued, “The stress of doing everything has wrecked my body.” This text appeared via a Photo of Curtis slumped in a chair in a waiting room, with a face mask and sunglasses.

That sixth slide in the series of stories had a black background with the following text, which contained little punctuation: “Let me stop right here and say… Make sure you have people today you can count on in these moments.” Not people who can’t handle those moments. Not people who expect you to move on, but people who will carry you. I am a strong woman and I have been carried.”

That next picture featured Curtis looking healthy and focused as she operated heavy construction equipment and wore a black tank top and shorts. Captioning the photo, she wrote, “The world is watching my friends…” but this was followed by a picture of her curled up under blankets in a hospital bed, still wearing her mask. above this photo, In stark contrast to the previous one, she wrote, “those who know the struggles, the heartbreak, the journey, watch this and get me through it,” along with a red heart emoji.

That last story curtis posted On July 13, a short video aired of them chatting animatedly on an outdoor porch Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing” played over it. Alongside that video, Curtis added the following caption: “Anyway the shows are here @hgtv has been very gracious. And when my heart heals and I feel like it’s time, I’ll make it – I always do.” Again, a red heart emoji followed.

It’s not yet clear what particular challenges weighed so heavily on Curtis, or why the series couldn’t air when — as she wrote — “the shows are there.” Meanwhile, HGTV hasn’t provided any updates on when the new series may be delayed.

Fans are swamped Curtis’ Instagram feed with well wishes and concerned comments, with many declaring how much they will miss her and her shows for the time being.

“Whatever it is, just know you have so many in your corner,” one woman wrote. “You may not know us, but we are here. Sending hugs and hoping things get better soon. Nothing is more important than taking care of your children and yourself.” HGTV pulls show as Nicole Curtis announces ‘I’m Done’
