Oprah Treats O'Connell To A Home Makeover

Actor JERRY O'CONNELL was so concerned his new girlfriend REBECCA ROMIJN would dump him after visiting his messy bachelor pad, he called in OPRAH WINFREY to help him transform the place.

The media mogul commissioned her favourite designer NATE BERKUS to revamp the college dorm-style home.

O'Connell confessed, "I am beyond embarrassed. My big problem is bringing my girlfriend here."

Before the home makeover, the 31-year-old actor used a ping-pong table as his dining table and had a treadmill and two thrift store armchairs in his living room.

He told Berkus that he had held back from redesigning his home because he didn't have a clue about decorating the place.

He added, "At one time I didn't care what people thought, but now that I'm 30, and I'm entering different stage in my life, I just can't bring anyone up here. I have zero design capabilities."

O'Connell was brought to tears with the stylish makeover when Berkus unveiled a huge painting by his artist father MICHAEL O'CONNELL in his bedroom.

The thrilled star then invited former model Romijn to check out his new home. She said, "I love it. There's so many places to put your cocktail down, besides a ping-pong table."
