Who is Mary in Clinton Kelly's life? A look at the match made in heaven for HGTV's 'Self-Made Mansion' host
When it comes to all things fashion, travel and relationships, no one does it quite like Clinton Kelly. The Emmy Award-winning host has not only hosted shows like 'Chew' and 'What Not To Wear', but has also written for a range of publications, including being an editor at Marie Claire and a deputy editor at Mademoiselle.
It's safe to say that if you need advice on anything lifestyle-based, Clinton Kelly is probably the best person to go to. Let's take a look at what he's up to next.
If you love real estate reality shows – because who doesn't love looking at swanky houses – then get ready for Season 1 of 'Self-Made Mansions', featuring none other than Kelly himself. The series follows new millionaires, who are on the hunt for a new home along with Kelly, who helps them pick the right one.
The clientele consists of the creative minds behind The Cut Buddy, Kwik Hang, Sweetroots Hair Bar and other such products – ingenious inventions that have gone on to make their creators millionaires. Seeing that they now have money to spend, Kelly helps them spend it right - by picking a mansion that suits their taste.
Kelly is no stranger to the limelight, having hosted shows like 'Chew' and 'What Not To Wear', TLC's longest-running makeover show. Instantly recognizable for his charismatic personality, it comes as no surprise that Kelly has quite the social media following, with roughly 363k followers on Instagram.
But the truth is, there might be someone who happens to be more popular than Kelly, even though they are featured in his posts regularly. And while Kelly and his husband Damon Bayles happen to look quite cute in an occasional post or two, we're actually referring to the third member of their little family – the adorable Mary!
A Jack Russell Terrier, Mary happens to be the couple's rescue dog, and you can clearly tell she's loved and adored by the couple Kelly's posts are adorable – he either talks about Mary or some cases to Mary – like this post.
The caption read "Hey Mary! Happy Half Hour! Let’s do it tomorrow (Friday) at 4:30! The planets have aligned and Damon and I both have the afternoon free. Please join us for drinks and food and silliness. (I feel bad that we never had a proper goodbye before I started working again.)" Talk about the cutest doggy date ever!
Kelly is big on the 'adopt, don't shop' policy, seeing that Mary is a rescue dog herself. Rescue dogs have a lot of love to give, adopting them allows them a chance at having a forever home. And just look at Mary, who could say no to an adorable face like that!
'Self-Made Mansions' Season 1 will have a total of six episodes. A new episode will air on Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on HGTV.
