Viola Davis is the latest celebrity to surprise a loved one with their dream home renovation on Drew and Jonathan Scott’s new HGTV show, Celebrity IOU.
The How to Get Away with Murder star joins the Property Brothers twins, 41, in Monday night's episode to completely overhault he home of her longtime friend Michelle, a breast cancer survivor.
"I call her my sister from another mister. I’m excited that I’m the one that’s giving this to her," Davis, 54, tells the brothers in a preview of the show.
Davis tells the Scotts that she and Michelle met when they both studied at Juilliard together, "struggling in New York together, just to eat, to pay the bills." After graduating, the friends went on to work in theater before Davis moved her career to Los Angeles while Michelle settled down in Minneapolis with her family.
Needless to say, Michelle's reaction to the final product is tear-jerking, as Davis takes her through all of the sentimental features she made sure to include throughout the home. "You knocked it out of the park," Michelle tells a tearful Davis.
Celebrity IOU airs Mondays at 9pm ET on HGTV.
