HAZLETON, PA., WOMAN TO APPEAR ON 'LIVE!'; LINDA DECOSMO WINS MAKEOVER

 BURBANK, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- She was going to New York to celebrate her young son's first communion, and she ended up agreeing to appear on a national television show.
 As Linda DeCosmo of Hazleton, Pa., was sightseeing at New York's Empire State Building with her husband and her young son, her husband said, "Hey, Regis is over there."
 He knew she was fanatical in her devotion to "Live with Regis & Kathie Lee" and often teased her about it.
 "He is not," she said, not taking the bait.
 He turned her around, and she was shocked to see Regis Philbin and his "Live!" camera crew walking toward her.
 "Ask if you can take a picture," her husband said, pushing her toward Philbin. When she wouldn't ask, he asked for her. Philbin walked over to DeCosmo, microphone in hand and cameraman right behind him.
 "How would you like to come on our show and get a makeover?"
 "Okay," was all DeCosmo could manage to say.
 Philbin's trek to the Empire State Building is part of "Live's" "I Love New York" week, July 26-30. Five sightseers found at various locations around the city will receive "Live!" makeovers.
 DeCosmo will appear on "Live!" Tuesday, July 27. "Live's" national audience will see a "before" photo of DeCosmo, and then Philbin will introduce her on the air revealing her complete makeover. "I'm really excited," DeCosmo said later. "Those makeovers are wonderful. I can hardly wait to see what I'll look like."
 See the new DeCosmo on "Live!" Tuesday.
 Watch "Live!" on WNEP-TV, Channel 16 at 9 a.m.
