When the Emmy-winning Heather Tom isn’t lathering up the suds on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, she and her husband James are following in the footsteps of other celebrities (see: Bronson Pinchot, Vanilla Ice, Adam Carolla) who have parlayed their love for home renovation into a part-time TV career.

Tom stars in Renovation Unscripted, an HGTV show that, well — let’s have Tom explain it herself: “We never seem to make any money doing it. But we’re not in it to get rich!
