Yep. The First Lady of these United States, Michelle Obama will be making an appearance on the ABC television show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. She will be on the series to support the military family of 15-year U.S. Navy veteran Barbara Marshall and help Marshall’s mission of assisting homeless veterans by building them new homes:
The White House says Mrs. Obama will travel on Thursday to Fayetteville, N.C., where she will roll up her sleeves and help expand a community resource center for homeless female veterans located just outside the gates of Ft. Bragg. The first lady’s participation is framed as part of the “Joining Forces” initiative she began with Dr. Jill Biden to provide support and recognition to military veterans and their families. Mrs. Obama will work specifically on a new greenhouse and a children’s playhouse at the center, the Steps-N-Stages Jubilee House. [Source]
The new episode will air some time in October of this year. Kudos to the First Lady!
Former America’s Next Top Model finalist, Toccara Jones is taking on yet another reality television series. This time her goal is to find a new man. 14 attractive and successful bachelors will be vying for her attention and competing through “a gauntlet of tests” in order to win the title of Mr. Right:
“Being on The Ultimate Merger has been the most amazing experience, both professionally and personally,” said Toccara. “I spend so much time on the road and focused on my career, it’s not been easy to meet the man of my dreams and develop a real relationship. It’s been incredibly hard work, but to have this time to focus on nothing else – and do it as part of my career – has been a fantastic opportunity. I am very excited for the TV One audience to be able to watch how the series unfolds and see who from among this incredible group of men I end up falling in love with.” [Source]
