“Rehab Addict” host Nicole Curtis is the latest HGTV star to find herself in the middle of some serious drama.

The host reportedly purchased a Minneapolis home for just $2 four years ago and was contractually obligated “substantially complete construction” of the fixer-upper within one year of purchase. According to the Star-Tribune, Curtis has apparently not completed construction on the home and neighbors and city officials considering reclaiming the home.

Blong Yang, a council member, said that he and other city officials met with Curtis at the property last month and she reportedly “didn’t  say much” during the meeting.

“I don’t know what the plan is,” Yang said. “I think we as a city have to figure out what to do at this point, because it has been a burden on the neighbors who live there.”

After the meeting with city officials, Curtis reportedly held a charity benefit at the home for a friend battling cancer. She charged $5 for entry into the open house on June 26.

According to the New York Daily News, Curtis commented about the controversy on Facebook and slammed the “disgraceful people who harassed and bullied people” at her fundraiser. She also claimed that the disruption ended with police showing up at the event.

“The long and short of it is I wrote done big checks to people we felt we could trust to get this done -and it didn’t,” she wrote in a comment. “By the time we got caught up to speed -it was a hot mess and we were onto other projects and quite frankly, my family comes first.”

When a commenter asked Curtis about why she had not completed the home, she responded, “Blong yang saw me Saturday –and has my cell phone :).”
