In order to put a spark into her life as she turned 50, a Sacramento Fire Department firefighter underwent a television makeover on the Steve Harvey talk show.
The transformation of fire Capt. Cathleen Russell airs 3 p.m. Wednesday on KCRA, Channel 3.
Russell, who works out of a station in the Natomas area, has been a firefighter for nearly 30 years, according to a press release from the “Steve Harvey” show. She wrote to the producers of the show for help in kicking off the new year with a new look.
Russell, who dresses in uniform and usually goes without makeup on the job, admits to having a bit of a “pity party going on,” since turning 50 years old in November and being single, according to the show.
