Nice from the house
Last week, actress Zooey Deschanel was a guest on Drew's and Jonathan Scott's show Celebrity IOU. The episode gave fans an adorable glimpse into her relationship with Jonathan as they worked together to surprise their lifelong friend with a makeover. This week the brothers are back with another familiar face and a special renovation project. Actress Allison Janney, who currently stars in Mom, is featured in the latest episode - and she may have made unofficial history for being the best-dressed construction worker of all time!
In the latest episode, which will air on Monday, December 21st at 9pm. ET / PT at HGTV, Janney works with the builders to surprise Ilana, her friend and personal assistant, with a stunning first floor home renovation. "She has become more like family to me than anything and she has given me a lot over the years," the actress said of Ilana during the episode. "I think this is a wonderful opportunity for me to do something nice for you." Janney shares that she and Ilana supported each other through some of life's toughest times.
Check out the renovation in the exclusive clip above - as well as Janney's fabulous construction outfit. The 61-year-old actress arrived on site in a stunning red evening dress and a pair of construction boots. "Ready to do some shit," she says to Drew and Jonathan Scott as she picks up a sledgehammer.
"Watch how it's done, guys," Janney says later in the clip as she pulls down a closet door. Now Janney only shows her construction and fashion skills during the episode, but also shows her sense of humor. "Who makes the martinis?" She jokes when Drew and Jonathan are in the middle of the demolition.
Throughout the episode, the trio will renovate the kitchen, dining room, and living area to create a stylish but functional hangout for Ilana. They'll even add a custom chilled wine cabinet to the kitchen - perfect for the next ladies' girls night out.
"Doing this for Ilana feels right," said Janney. "It feels really good to give something to someone like her who was there for me in a way I never expected."
