Gabrielle Union and husband Dwyane Wade are showing off a hidden passion to their fans.
The superstar couple will take a break from their day jobs to complete a major home transformation in a new HGTV special, All-Star Flip. The two will buy, overhaul and flip a fixer upper in an up-and-coming Miami neighborhood, with the proceeds going to charity.
“Ever since we renovated our house a few years ago, I’ve been a little real-estate obsessed,” Union said in a statement. “It took a while, but I finally convinced Dwyane that we should try flipping a house.”
“And we’re doing it to raise money for charity,” Wade adds. “So how could I say no?”
During the special, Union and Wade will join forces with their construction team to gut an outdated ranch house and add square footage and value to the property with a grand second-story master suite. They will transform the home into a sleek, modern showplace, and, in the end, the proceeds of the sale will go to a charity of the couple’s choice.
The half-hour special will premiere Thursday, April 12, at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
