Or his ‘business calls’ with his ‘business manager,’ or his shoe rack with all his children-sized shoes.”
Handler then recalled a touching Christmas story involving Bravo, stating, “I’ll never forget him coming to Christmas with my family one year in the Florida keys, and when my niece who was 5 or 6 at the time—saw him, she ran in the other direction saying she was scared.”
“My sister and I were mortified and were apologizing to Chuy, who told us, ‘it’s ok, lots of little kids get scared when they see big kids coming their way,’” she continued.
She then ended the touching submit with a powerful, “I really like you, Chuy!”
