Bennion stated that she was not given a budget by the Merediths during her renovations despite multiple requests. Bennion stated that she talked to Candis about her concerns with renovations and received a lot of excuses from Candis. She also said that she was promised things would arrive the next day. Bennion claims that these promises were rarely fulfilled. According to the homeowner, she reached out the Magnolia Network producers for assistance during her renovation. Candis was given a hard time by the Magnolia Network after Candis called.
However, there was no significant change. Bennion stated that she has developed trust in Chip's and Joannas brands through a professional relationship at Magnolia Market. She attended its vendor events through her business. So, the disappointment with the network was disappointing.
She said that Magnolia should be held accountable. I find it amazing that Magnolia's reputation and name would be at stake. They also allowed these individuals to serve them, without supervision or mentoring.

Vienna stated that she had emailed the lawyer and they said they believed that they intended to repay her. In an Instagram post, the Goateses shared the comfort of knowing that they were right here.

About the experience. We were taken advantage by our kindness and extreme patience. It is a terrible violation. But, we are so sorry. Our consciences are very clear.
