Kevin Hart Shows Deep Gratitude to his Friend and Personal Trainer With a Dramatic Renovation in July 5 Episode of HGTV’s ‘Celebrity IOU’
New York [June 29, 2021] In a new episode of the hit HGTV series Celebrity IOU, airing on Monday, July 5, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, comedian, actor and producer Kevin Hart—who has won a BET Award, NAACP Image Awards and People’s Choice Awards and been nominated for a Primetime Emmy® Award—will express his deep gratitude to his close friend and personal trainer Ron, aka “Boss.” Kevin will combine forces with real estate and renovation experts Drew and Jonathan Scott to transform a crumbling backhouse on Boss’ property into a retreat for the friend who helped him learn how to walk again after a serious car accident. In a nod to how he met Boss, Kevin will even help design a custom barber shop for the new space. In addition to airing on HGTV, Kevin’s episode of Celebrity IOU will be available to stream on discovery+ early on Monday, July 5.
“My life got flipped upside down by a tragic accident, and I had to kind of start over,” said Kevin. “It’s good when you have somebody to do it with you and walk you through it. And Boss was there with me every step of the way.”
During the episode, Kevin will help the Scott Brothers knock down the old kitchen and tear up the rotted floors of the backhouse. Kevin’s smart design decisions will help create a space reflective of Boss’ style, including a modern kitchen with a hidden bar and large stone island and an open living area for entertaining with expansive sliding doors to the back yard.
“This is a small token of my appreciation that Boss won’t see coming and that will hopefully floor him,” said Kevin. “This renovation is well deserved because of the person that he is.”
