Ali Wong was out to surprise her best friend.
In a new episode of “Celebrity IOU”, the comedian teamed up with the Property Brothers to make over Citadelle’s home.
“I really wouldn’t be where I am if it wasn’t for her,” Wong told Drew and Jonathan Scott.

Wong and the brothers re-did her college classmate’s basement and backyard.
“It’s scary, you’re like an action hero. You’re picking up these huge weapons basically and battling it out with this old a** wall and these old a** tiles,” Wong said while trying to do the demo.
“They’re literally glued and cemented to the floor. They’re meant to stay there forever. Like, that was the person’s intention. Like, it was not to be drilled up by this five-foot lady trying to do something nice for her friend.”

“You’ve always just been so giving to me,” Wong said of how Citadelle and partner Victor have opened their doors to her. “I’m basically a professional moocher. And if I don’t give back to you soon I will not be able to continue mooching.”
“She really is like a sister to me,” Wong said.

It was also an emotional moment for Citadelle, who said, “I can’t believe this is my life. I can’t believe this is happening. I honestly feel like she doesn’t owe me anything. I feel like her friendship has been such a gift.”
