HGTV’s John Gidding loves Atlanta but not AT&T

Add this share

imageHey, AT&T: Everyone hates you. And we’re not just talking about the complaints over dropped iPhone calls and spotty signals. John Gidding – Atlanta’s gay, sexy and smart architect and interior designer -- thinks you stink, too. At least your building in Midtown. There are a few traits that bewitch us: sexy, smart and sassy. Gidding (photo) has them all and made use of the latter when dishing about the 47-story AT&T Midtown Center: “It looks like Legos or something.” Snap. The quip to Fenuxe comes with a bit of disappointing news – even surprising, since we thought our online stalking of Gidding, a former model, kept us in the loop: He’s dropped his Atlanta base, tucked inside Studioplex in the Old Fourth Ward. Now he’s gone really gay, shifting his operations to San Francisco to prepare for the third season of HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block.” The new season premieres on Saturday, April 16 at 8:30 p.m. (View promo) Despite the move, he tells the magazine that he still loves us. And we you, John.
