Demi Lovato Performs Skyscraper On Extreme Makeover: Home Edition!

This show generally puts us in tears, so for them to tackle such an important topic - and with her presence - we're blubbering messes!

Check out this clip from Friday's episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which features Demi Lovato performing her smash single, Skyscraper, in order to bring awareness to the serious - and detrimental - effects that bullying can have on a teen (above)!

And yeah! The Kardashian sisters seem to be there, too!

So powerful! We couldn't be more proud of Demi from rising above all of her personal problems and using that experience to educate her peers on this issue!

Such an inspiration!

Awful Family On Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Lies About Daughters' Illnesses

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadReality TV

This is so disgusting.

The Cerda family was featured on ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition after they asked the show to help them and their two daughters, who they said suffered from immunodeficiency disease.

In their appeal to the show, the family claimed that the girls illnesses were caused by toxins in their home due to mold. Their daughters were forced to wear masks and were even featured in a video posted by the Immune Deficiency Foundation (above).

Unfortunately, it seems that parents, Chuck and Terri Cerda, were a fraud and duped the show into believing they were a struggling couple trying to help their family.

After they were forced to put their house up for sale when they couldn't afford the home's increasing costs, the two girls were taken away from their parents for suspected child abuse and neglect.

After several tests and examinations, six different doctors testified that neither of the girls were sick. In fact, one of the doctors told a judge in the case against the parents that the girls were victims of medical child abuse.

Unbelievable. And so terribly tragic. We're just thankful that the girls are no longer in their parents' custody and can hopefully recover from this. Chuck and Terri should be behind bars.

Mariah Carey Appears On Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Filed under: TV NewsMariah CareyReality TV

mariah carey surprises extreme makeover home edition winner at his job

Cafeteria worker Finis Gaston's day went from awesome to even MORE awesome!

During lunch time at Baker School, Ty Pennington of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition appeared in his cafeteria, bullhorn and all. Here's what Gaston had to say about it:

“I almost threw up."

Two colleagues of Gaston had submitted a video of the Baker man's home to Extreme Makeover producers the year before, and producers had been in contact on and off, but this still came as a shock to everyone.

Here's what a 7th grader Brittany Anderson had to say about it:

“We saw the camera crew come in the cafeteria and thought they were just going to interview him again. Then Ty ran in and everybody started screaming. Finis was in shock and everything.”

But what was the real suprise? The show's big bus rolled up to the school and out came the one and only Mariah Carey!

Finis Gaston was floored by all of this, and was even more excited about the possibility of getting an improved living situation for his family, including his niece and nephews, whom he's raised since both his sisters were involved in a fatal car wreck.

Gaston left college to raise the children, and had been living in a home with many vital repairs needed, but now, he's getting offered a new job in Pensacola, where the producers of Extreme Makeover are setting him up with a new house.

Here's what Gaston had to say about it:

“I feel everything I’ve prayed for is going my way. I’ve been on my knees a lot of nights praying everything will go our way for my family.”

We're happy for you Gaston, and we think it's AWESOME that Mariah made an appearance at your school in Baker to break the amazing news!

How would U react if Mariah Carey showed up at your job?
