QUICK TAKE

JENNY MCCARTHY TO APPEAR ON ABC'S "EXTREME MAKEOVER"

Comedic actress/author Jenny McCarthy will appear in an episode of "Extreme Makeover," it was announced today. McCarthy will surprise her mother, Linda Konczal of suburban Chicago, IL, with a mini-makeover which will be headed by stylist Sam Saboura and other Extreme Team experts, THURSDAY, MARCH 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Linda Konczal works as a custodian in a Chicago area court house and refuses to quit her job. Her daughter wants to give her mother the celebrity treatment by whisking her away to Hollywood for a head-to-toe hair/makeup/wardrobe mini-makeover.

Jenny McCarthy ("Scary Movie 3," TV's "Jenny") has been acting for over a decade since she dropped out of nursing school to pursue acting. She stars in the upcoming TV series "The Bad Girls' Guide," and will be seen in her screenwriting film debut, "Dirty Love," directed by her husband, John Asher.

Each new episode features participants in their "before" phase, then as they undergo their various procedures and, finally, when the end results are revealed to their families and friends. The transformations are accomplished through the skills of an "Extreme Team," consisting of plastic surgeons, dermatologists, eye surgeons and cosmetic dentists, along with a talented team of hair and makeup artists, stylists and personal trainers.

The "Extreme Team" roster includes: prominent board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Garth Fisher, Dr. Anthony Griffin, Dr. Brent Moelleken, Dr. Jon A.

Shamban; LASIK eye surgeon Dr. Robert Maloney; wardrobe stylist Sam Saboura; master body sculptor and rapid weight-loss expert Michael Thurmond; top hair stylists, including Kim Vo, John Allen, Umberto, Sally Hershberger and Oscar Blandi; and many celebrity makeup artists, including Darcy Gilmore and Anastasia.
