Leslie Jordan gave her best friends an HGTV home makeover before her death


Before he passed away last month, beloved actor Leslie Jordan gave his best friends a complete home makeover.

In one of his final television appearances to air on HGTV, Jordan surprises two friends who he credits with helping him break into Hollywood and get sober. With renovators Drew and Jonathan Scott, Jordan knocked on the door of Rosemary Alexander and Newell Alexander to tell their friends of 40 years that they were getting a major upgrade to their home.

CNN previewed the episode in which Jordan laughs as the Scotts put him to work, banging a hammer against the walls on demolition day. He is overcome with excitement to be able to give his friends something they have always wanted.
