Totally agree. I’m still watching the show because I like Clea and Joanna’s friendship, and I always like being a voyeur inside other people’s homes. But I hate that they gloss over the importance of editing, especially with celebrity clients.
For example, I recently finished the Khloé Kardashian episode, and in terms of editing, they only thing they talked about was the mystery green bicycle. First of all, how is there a bicycle in your house, and you have no idea who it belongs to or how it got there? And second, you're okay getting rid of it if you're not sure it's yours? Beyond that, we never heard the conversation about what needed to go or stay. Why were there still 5 baby strollers, for example? Maybe some of them belonged to Khloé’s sisters or her brother, or maybe she has different strollers for different needs. But no one talked about it. Which make me fixate on those damn strollers. Similarly, I have no right to tell anyone how many toys their children should have, but I would’ve loved to hear a throwaway line like “Yes, True does drive all of these cars.”
Compare this to the kitchen episode, where Clea and Joanna talked to the family about getting rid of blenders and appliances that no longer worked or didn't fit their needs. Which is a very important step. But it leaves me with the impression that Clea and Joanna want "regular" people to get rid of excess junk, while celebrities can hold onto as much extra crap as they want because they're rich and have the space for it.
And is The Home Edit office really that stark white? I can't decide if it would be soothing to work there or if I'd feel like a patient in a mental institution.
