You can’t get well without asking for forgiveness, she said.

Actress and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Zampino said, “I hope with him – he’s been in the business since he was 16 with Fresh Prince of Bel Air. He’s so giving, he puts his heart and soul into his work, and he’s so nice and generous and connected to his audience.
