A ‘Home Town’ Spin Off
The Napiers have been busy in 2021. Hometown Takeover, a spin-off of their original show, required the family to temporarily move to another home in Alabama away from their home in Mississippi.
Then, after a few months of filming, they had to go. The show must go on. They left. Erin said of the move, “I just started thinking about, like, all these people that cared for us and took care of us when we’re so far from home. We had a lot of hard moments while we were filming in Wetumpka.”
The Napiers made real connections in that area. Moving like this with a family across state lines isn’t easy. For anybody. Thankfully, it seems like the Napiers had a great support system in the community to make it easier on everyone.
Erin continued, “Our little girl broke her leg. I was really, you know, not feeling great and the pregnancy, and there was a handful of people who knew that I was pregnant there and they just loved us and they took care of us. They brought us food. They helped us, you know, we needed a doctor. We didn’t know who to call. They stepped up and stood in the gap where we really needed people. I was thinking of all those things as we’re filming this scene about just, get it the truck and drive away, and I started crying.”
The community stepped up for the Napiers when they needed them. It was an emotional thing to spend so much emotional energy doing the kinds of projects they did in this town to only leave after everything is complete. Yes, that is part of what they signed up for, but it had to be difficult to make all of those connections. in the town only to pack up and leave not all that long after.
