Crew member’s wife attacked at hotel during Extreme Makeover production

The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition crew and their families don’t live in luxury while they’re working to bring a family a new house and bring us tears. As a result, a crew member’s wife was attacked on location this weekend.

In Maryland’s Prince George’s County this weekend, “[t]he wife of a crew member was beaten with a gun Saturday morning during an armed burglary in the lobby of a Largo hotel where some in the crews were staying,” according to the Washington Post. “A man demanded and received money from the front desk of Extended Stay America and then beat the woman in the face before leaving the hotel off Central Avenue near the Capital Beltway.”

That lead to a change in venue for the crew: “The crew members, who were staying at the hotel and the Hampton Inn next door, packed their bags and are now staying at the more expensive Greenbelt Marriott,” the paper reports.

The house was demolished Monday morning, and work continues this week on the new home of Capitol Heights resident Veronica Ginyard and her eight kids.
