  • Heather Wilson's living room is no longer just ugly.

    Instead, it has earned the dubious honor of being the ugliest room in Shelbyville.

    Wilson is ecstatic.

    For those who are not in the loop, Wilson is not ecstatic because she doesn't have to come up with ugly room jokes for the comedy circuit.

    No, she is happy because being the proud owner of the ugliest room in town entitles her to a makeover.

    Wilson was the top vote-getter in the Ugly Room Contest sponsored by the Shelbyville Merchants Association for Retail Trade (SMART).
