Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Foster Parents Reportedly Kicked 5 Adopted Kids Out AFTER The House Was Finished!

no title

Home is where the heart was

Believe it or not, it's been nearly four years since Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's last renovation — but that doesn't mean the reality show has completely moved on to the pop culture graveyard.

In fact, the Ty Pennington-hosted home improvement program has been making headlines all week… for just about the most destructive reason ever!

That's because we're hearing the Friday Family from the penultimate episode of the ABC series actually kicked out five of their seven adopted children AFTER the makeover was complete!

According to local reports out of North Carolina, Devonda and James Friday of Charlotte had just adopted five young brothers and sisters at the time of taping to keep the siblings from being separated into the foster system back in 2012.

However, we're now hearing that all of the children — including eldest kids Chris and Kamaya, whom have since dropped the Friday surname — were sent to different group homes within a year of their episode's airing!

Luckily, the brother/sister pair has now come forward to share their heartbreaking story, with Chris telling WSOC-TV:

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?
