“I don’t think I’ve ever cried on television before but now I am,” she said on the show “The Rosie Show” where she got emotional.
Handler feels she is still connected with her mom Rita who died in 2006 battling cancer and older brother Chet,who died in a hiking accident when she was very young,” reports contactmusic.com.
“It was kind of a nice way to understand that they’re still with you… I feel like my mum is around me all the time. I think she probably thinks I need more guidance because I’m in such a fast life. I’m constantly running around and it’s Hollywood, so it’s a crazy place.
“I’m young and I like to have fun. My mum was always like, ‘Oh gosh, your type of spirit can either go down a good road or go down a bad road.’ I’m sure it’s that kind of thing, like, trying to keep me on the straight and narrow,” added 36-year-old TV star remembering her beloved mother.
