For its ninth season, HGTV is bringing back the popular mother-daughter pair from their long-running program, Good Bones. The show’s launch date has yet to be announced, but the two hosts, Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak, have already made news for using legally-banned lead paints in their remodeling work.

Furthermore, the mother-daughter team accepted their mistake and will pay a $40,000 punishment to the US Environmental Protection Agency. Good Bones includes a pair. A mother-daughter team, Karen E Laine and Mina Stariak. In their hometown of Indianapolis, the remodeling professionals were recorded working on decaying buildings. Throughout the season, they redesign, construct, and refurbish these antique structures.

According to the show’s official synopsis:

“Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak, a mother-daughter team, are on a mission to rebuild their city of Indianapolis one property at a time. They are purchasing run-down houses and refurbishing them into spectacular urban remodels.”

It continues:

“With Mina’s real estate expertise and Karen’s no-nonsense legal experience, these women are unstoppable in obtaining the land they want and rallying the assistance of their family for demolition and construction. It all boils down to the women of Good Bones when it comes to fascinating new houses in the city of Indianapolis.”

Before deciding on house restoration, Good Bones’ mother and daughter worked in various fields.

58-year-old Karen E. Laine worked as a lawyer full-time. She earned her law degree from Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law. She also worked as a defense attorney after graduation. She started her legal career in 1990 as an associate attorney at Cohen & Malad. She then worked as a Deputy Prosecutor for the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. Later, at the Jensen Law company, she received criminal defense, family law, mediation, and guardian ad litem services. Laine does, however, practice law on a part-time basis at the moment.

She is also the mother of four children. She has three children from her first marriage: Mina, William, and CR. Kelsy and her current husband, Randy, have their fourth child. Mina Starsiak Hawk, Mina’s daughter, is a mother, novelist, business owner, and wife. She had no idea what she wanted to pursue after graduating from Indiana University. As a result, she began working as a waiter.


However, when she purchased a $37,500 old house, the 31-year-old enlisted her mother’s assistance in repairing it. That’s when she recognized she had a natural talent for house construction. They then formed their own firm, Two Chicks And A Hammer. Mina also married Steve, whom she met on Facebook, in June 2016. The couple had their first child, Jack Richard Hawk, in 2018, and will welcome their second child, daughter Charlotte, in September 2020. Mina will play a significant role in the future musical since her mother want to be with her husband, who was stricken with cancer in 2019.
