A Texas woman is suing ABC after getting bumped from the reality show “Extreme Makeover.”

The New York Daily News says Deleese Williams got the boot the night before her surgeries were to start. She says the about-face ruined her family’s life.

Her lawyer says producers nixed her appearance after a dental surgeon told them her recovery time would be longer than expected. Williams claims getting dumped shattered her family’s dream and triggered her sister’s suicide.

Williams is suing for money damages for breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress and other offenses.
