Clean House is a home makeover and interior design television show, originally broadcast in 2003 which aired 10 seasons of programs on the Style Network.
Currently hosted by Tempestt Bledsoe and formerly hosted by Niecy Nash, the show brings a four-person cleanup-and-renovation crew to the homes of families to clean up clutter.
In 2010, Nash announced that she would be leaving the series, though it will continue on without her. Later that month, the Style Network confirmed that former Cosby Show cast member Tempestt Bledsoe would take over as host. As of 2013, the show is believed to have been canceled due to low ratings after Nash's departure.
Each episode begins with a short montage introducing the subjects of the makeover.
The host guides family members through the process of letting go of things with the assistance of "Go-to-Guy," handyman Matt Iseman, "Yard Sale King," Joel Steingold and designer Didi Snyder.
Previous seasons featured "Designer with all the magic" Mark Brunetz, "Yard Sale Guy" Allan Lee Haff, "Yard Sale Diva" comedic actress Trish Suhr, "Organizer" Linda Koopersmith, and "Designer" Michael Moloney.
The Clean House team will negotiate and make deals with family members in order to convince them to sell belongings.
The excess belongings are sold at a yard sale to raise money for the makeover.
Commercial breaks are often trailed with segments featuring quick interior design tips directed at the viewer usually presented by Brunetz and Nash, and organizational tips presented by Suhr.
Organizer Linda Koopersmith filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in Debi Gutierrez filled in for Niecy Nash in four episodes in 2007, "The Blount Family", "The Cohen Family", "The Bunce Family, and "The Freitz Family", while Nash was away filming Reno 911! Style network stated that they were not replacing Nash with Gutierrez.
Some people say Gutierrez was not chosen due to her "bullying" in one episode she hosted.
She was attempting to convince a woman to give up her shoes.
When she said, "Then do it without bitching", the woman gave up the shoes, and ran out crying to her husband saying that Debi bullied her.
In April 2015, some of the former cast members, including Niecy Nash, Mark Brunetz, Trish Suhr, and Matt Iseman, met up for a reunion and interview on The Hallmark Channel, discussing former home remodels, their time on the show, and past Clean House yard sales.
