Putting her interior design skills to good use, Jillian Harris joined the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” team in Slaughterville, Oklahoma to help rebuild a special family’s home.
The former “Bachelorette” star pitched in to help rebuild a moldy, rotting, termite-infested home owned by Brian and Audra Skaggs, who have a 2-year-old son named Jhett with a weakened immune system after receiving a heart transplant.
“The Skaggs reminded me of ‘my kind of people,” Jillian says. “They love country music, campfires, family.”
Admitting to being completely frazzled after her reality TV experience, Harris says the Skaggs brought the old Jillian back- a “spunky energetic Jilly.”
Furthmore, the Canadian native added, “The entire process brought me to tears, happy tears, grateful tears and tears of hope.”
