‘Good Bones’ star Mina Starsiak Hawk says she and her mom had ‘a knockdown drag-out’ fight before filming the season premiere

  • Mina Starsiak Hawk stars on HGTV's "Good Bones" with her mother, Karen E. Laine. 

  • Hawk told People they argued before a demolition project while filming the final season. 

  • The costars aren't on good terms at the moment, Hawk said.

Mina Starsiak Hawk said she and her mother had a serious disagreement while filming the final season of HGTV's "Good Bones."

Hawk shared the details during an interview with People while discussing her tumultuous relationship with Karen E. Laine, her mother and costar.

The pair have worked side-by-side on "Good Bones" for seven seasons. They recently announced the eighth would be their last. The series is based on the family's business, but Hawk revealed on her podcast "Mina AF" that her and Laine's relationship is strained.

Hawk told People that the tension bled into filming, saying: "There's interpersonal family dynamics that people don't see."

"There were definitely some challenging [moments] because my mom and I were in some of the most challenging places I felt we've been," Hawk continued.

She said that around the time the pair filmed the season eight premiere, they had a "knockdown drag-out [fight] during demo."

"I was like, 'I wonder if anyone's going to be able to tell,'" Hawk told the outlet. "And of course, you can't because that's the idea. People . . . that's not why they're tuning in to watch 'Good Bones.' That's not what they want."

Representatives for Laine, Hawk, and HGTV did not immediately respond to Insider requests for comments made outside of regular business hours.

Insider's Samantha Grindell reported that Hawk discussed her family's fallout during an episode from her podcast. Hawk has five siblings, some of whom she mentioned while telling listeners that she was unsure if she wanted to invite her family to her son's birthday party.

"My mom and I aren't in a great place. My brother Tad and I aren't in a great place. My brother William and I are kind of like nonexistent place. It's complicated without even being complicated," she said. "We don't really engage much, and the last engagement wasn't super positive. And that was maybe a year ago."

More recently, Hawk said her mother gets to have 'fun' filming the series because Hawk carries the financial burden.
