Kardashian sisters, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'Bullying is a serious problem that can lead to all sorts of emotional and psychological issues for the victims, even later into their lives. For the Walker family, it cost them their son after he committed suicide at the tender age of 11. On 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC), the family was giving a new home they could hopefully feel at peace in, as well as some help with their anti-bullying initiative.

First, the Kardashian sisters surprised eldest daughter Dominique on a shopping trip, where Khloe talked about her own experiences with bullying. She was often compared negatively to sisters Kourtney and Kim, and fans of the show know that she actually took a DNA test years later to see if she was truly related to them. Insecurities from bullying can linger for years.

Allen Hill Extreme MakeoverEvery family touched by 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC) has a worthy story, but few makeovers are as poignant and relevant as last week's renovation.

Ty Pennington and his team headed to Ottowa, KS, to surprise the Hill family, whose patriarch, Staff Sergeant Allen Hill, was almost killed by a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq. Though he survived the blast, he now suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that can be triggered by loud noises, dimly lit spaces and long hallways.

The former Hill family home was located near a rock quarry and a train yard, both sources of constant noise and disruption, so the 'Extreme Makeover' team found a more suitable location on which to construct a new property.

'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' - 'The Korpai Family'This week, Ty Pennington and the 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC) took on a task very close to the heart for Amy and Matt Roloff ('Little People Big World'). The Korpai family have a five-year old daughter, Hailey, with dwarfism, but their house is hardly suitable for her needs.

The Roloffs undertook a similar renovation on their farm to make the kitchen and other areas of the house more user-friendly for little people. So the design team stopped by Roloff farms for some inspiration, and invited Matt back to help with the build. Bill Klein and Jen Arnold ('The Little Couple') got involved as well, as this was more than just a rebuild of a house.

Did the Cerda Family Con 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' Into Building Them a House?

by Jean Bentley, posted May 18th 2011 4:25PM
With all the heartwarming do-gooding shown on ABC's 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,' it's inevitable that con artists would want in on the action. According to E! Online, one family succeeded in fleecing the network.

E! alleges that the Cerda family, who appeared on the show in March 2009, conned ABC into building them a fancy new home specially equipped with air filtration systems for their two ailing daughters, who suffer from combined immunodeficiency disease. The problem: the daughters may not be sick after all.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

The family moved from Las Vegas to Oregon, allegedly because they couldn't keep up with house payments and medical bills. According to a comprehensive report in The Oregonian, the Cerdas tried to assemble a new medical team in their new hometown, but doctors there didn't find anything wrong with the girls. In fact, they were so skeptical that they reported the Cerdas to child welfare services, who then took custody of the children.

But a new house wasn't the only treat in store for Patrick and his family. While on their vacation, Patrick was treated to a visit by one of his idols, Atticus Shaffer. The breakout star of 'The Middle' has the same disability as Patrick, but doesn't see it that way.

"It's technically called a disability," Shaffer told the Sharrocks, "But I don't see it in any way disabling us. I'm able to do all the things I really want to do, just a little differently and more carefully."
