Selena Gomez & Usher will appear on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with the Scott family in Clarksville, Tennessee to give Trina Scott and her three daughters the good news that their problem-ridden home would be rebuilt in just seven days. This episode of ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ will air SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6 @ 8-9 PM, ET on ABC. The family gets to visit Selena Gomez on the set of Wizards of Waverly Place.
Trina, 44, met her husband Dave while he was serving with U.S. Army Special Forces in Fort Bragg and it was love at first sight. After his discharge, Dave became a Clarksville police officer. In 2002, he and his partner were on duty when their police car was violently struck by a truck. The car spun out of control, hit a guardrail, caught fire and killed both Dave and his partner almost instantly.
Overwhelmed with grief, Trina turned to a group called Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (C.O.P.S.), which helps the surviving family members of officers killed in the line of duty. Inspired by the help she received from C.O.P.S., Trina devoted all of her free time to the organization and became its President in 2003.
The time that Trina dedicates to C.O.P.S. represents essentially a full-time job, and that’s on top of the full time job she works to support her three daughters, Leyla, 17, Deidie, 13, and Alethea, 11. Trina has spent more than $20,000 on the mounting repairs to her small home, but the structural problems caused by termites and water damage remain.
