HGTV Star Nicole Curtis Calls Out Her Ex After Spending Thanksgiving Without Her Son

By

Nicole Curtis had a quiet Thanksgiving alone. 

The 42-year-old Rehab Addict star took to Instagram over the holidays to lament about being apart from her youngest son, 3-year-old Harper, whom she shares with ex Shane Maguire. 

Posting a shot of herself with Harper and her 21-year-old son, Ethan, from a different relationship, Curtis wrote, “So thankful to be mom to these two. I’ve been asked what my Thanksgiving plans are and receive horrified looks when I say nothing.” 

She went on to say that given the choice, she’d love to have hosted a Thanksgiving meal at her home, but added, “Like so many others we are trapped in the fd [sic] world of ‘not your parenting time.’”

Curtis then tries to encourage those who are split up but still trying to co-parent, saying, “You’re not alone -- I certainly never expected to be in this situation and would have my ex at my dining room table today (still as my ex, don’t get me wrong), but it’s not up to me.”

So thankful to be mom go these two. I’ve been asked what my Thanksgiving plans are and receive horrified looks when I say nothing. Don’t get me wrong-it’s me for God’s sake -the protector of formal dining rooms, of course,every bone in my body yearns to cook, entertain and stuff myself full of my gram’s pie recipe that I never will get just right -but like so many others we are trapped in the fd world of “not your parenting time”. So, while I gladly and happily wish all a blessed Thanksgiving who celebrate it like I dream of doing so -my words are here today to tell the rest of you, like us, you’re not alone -I certainly never expected to be in this situation & would have my ex at my dining room table today (still as my ex,don’t get me wrong😂), but it’s not up to me. And if you are the parent that refuses to allow your child the joy of having both parents in the same room (sans abusive/dangerous situation) —buck up -it’s not about you. Gave someone that talk yesterday -got me nowhere, but no one ever said I wasn’t persistent :) so, be safe, spread love today and I must add that if you have a low moment during these times I’m sending you extra ❤️ and energy-no shame-we’ve all been there #happythanksgiving

The HGTV star went on to seemingly call out Maguire, writing, “If you are the parent that refuses to allow your child the joy of having both parents in the same room (sans abusive/dangerous situation) — buck up — it’s not about you. Gave someone that talk yesterday — got me nowhere, but no one ever said I wasn’t persistent :).” 

ET has reached out to Maguire's attorney regarding Curtis' claims.

Curtis also told People magazine, “Even on the worst day, my ex is encouraged and welcomed in our home. We recently all went trick-or-treating together, even though it was ‘my parenting time.’ I always hope the same courtesy will be extended, but it is not.” 

The reality star also claimed that Harper was sick ahead of Thanksgiving, but that her ex refused to change his plans. “I arrived at the airport and literally had my baby ripped out of my arms and whisked away as I was ‘screwing up’ Thanksgiving plans,” she told the magazine. “The cycle never ends.” 

People reached out to Maguire for comment, but he did immediately not respond to the publication's request for comment.

This isn’t the first time Curtis has spoken out about not spending time with Harper on a major holiday. This past Easter, she also posted about spending the day away from her youngest son.

I have a game I play when things go sideways-it's called, but look at the wonderful staircase. Holidays aren't always joyous and I can tell you that if you don't get that ? You're so blessed. Got a solid no when I asked to spend some time with my little on Easter was also told that he had his first haircut without me knowing because he "looked like a girl". So here I am (after a day with some kickass women taking care of my broken little mommy heart) saying ---look at that wonderful staircase !!!! And boarding a flight to go kiss my Gramps. I think in life some people take advantage of you when you're most vulnerable ---just remember that that person seeks the weak out because they are weak themselves. God Bless all of you on this Easter Eve --I had a #babybump in this pic -so it was never used :). *********
