Good Lord, who is NOT into decorating these days? I swear I will not blink an eye if I hear the Pope has either started a chain of home design shops — heavy inventory on the gold, purple and red velvets — or appears on HGTV renovating a home in Italy. Now we learn 90′s rap star Vanilla Ice, who’s real name is Robert Van Winkle, and who grew up in Farmers Branch/Carrollton, is hosting a home improvement show. The show utilizes Winkle’s construction skills and he must be good — he’s renovated a 9,000 square foot home in Palm Beach. A Dallas couple won a $30,000 room makeover for their home and Vanilla, or rather, Robert, is the guy who showed up — in a Rolls Royce, no less, to get the project going. The couple, Sean and Erica Heatley, have a 2,000 square foot home valued at about $276,000 on Best Drive in North Dallas near Royal and Midway. The 1954-built structure needed some help, particularly in the pool house. And along came Ice Ice, baby.
