Comedic actress/author Jenny McCarthy will appear in an episode of "Extreme Makeover," it was announced today.

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.

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.
