In November 2006, Fannie and her husband moved into a FEMA trailer on their property. For 18 months, Fannie and her husband, Gene, have been living in the small trailer on the front lawn of their unfinished house.
When Oprah's designer pal Nate Berkus heard about Fannie's living conditions, he knew he had to step in and help. Nate tells Fannie to say goodbye to her FEMA trailer—he's bringing a team down to New Orleans to finish her house!
When Nate arrives, Fannie and Gene give him a tour of the trailer they've had to call home. "There's barely enough room in here for you and me," Nate says.
