    Where's Home Edition Mom?

    October 22, 2004 --
    A mystery surrounds the whereabouts of a Queens woman whose house was renovated for an upcoming epsiode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

    Lucy Ali, 62, has not been seen in her South Ozone Park neighborhood for several weeks, neighbors said yesterday.

    An ABC spokeswoman, Marsha Smith, told The Post earlier this week that Ali was ill and hospitalized. Yesterday, she refused to provide anymore details.

    The episode featuring her home makeover is scheduled to air next Sunday night and a behind-the-scenes special is set for the following night (Nov. 1) that shows how her house was redone.


    Ali, a former city tax collector and the single mother of two 12-year-old adopted sons, received the surprise of her life last July when a construction crew from the TV show descended on her crumbling house and in less than a week turned it into a palace.

    Ali and her sons had been left virtually homeless by an unscrupulous home-improvement company that took $72,000 she'd borrowed from the bank, then abandoned the house in 2002 with gaping holes in the roof and no bathrooms or running water.

    The new version of Ali's house features video security cameras, a 47-inch surround-sound plasma TV and central air, as well as a go-cart track in the backyard.
