  • AND TELL WHERE WE ASK OUR GUESTS TO SHOW SOMETHING FROM THEIR

  • HOME WE MIGHT NOT OTHERWISE GET TO SEE.

  • DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THIS EVENING?

  • >> YES.

  • MANY PEOPLE KNOW BUT MANY DON'T THAT I GREW UP WITH A DISABLED

  • MOTHER WHO RESIDES AT THE ACTOR'S FUND NURSING HOME RIGHT

  • NOW, SHOUT OUT TO THE NURSING HOME IN INGLE WOOD, NEW JERSEY!

  • ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) SO WHEN SHE WAS YOUNGER, AND

  • WHEN THERE WERE ARTS IN THE SCHOOLS AND THINGS OF THAT

  • NATURE, SHE MADE AN ASHTRAY OUT OF -- A CERAMIC ASHTRAY.

  • WHAT I FIND SO INTERESTING ABOUT IT IS THAT THERE'S A STRENGTH TO

  • IT, THERE'S A GIRTH TO IT, THERE'S A HEAVINESS TO IT,

  • THERE'S A GROUNDEDNESS TO IT THAT REMINDS ME OF MY MOTHER'S

  • SPIRIT.

  • I STOLE THIS FROM HER WHEN I WAS 21.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) I HAVE HAD IT EVER SINCE.

  • MY MOTHER DOES NOT SMOKE, MY MOTHER DOES NOT DRINK.

  • SHE IS A ERELIGIOUS WOMAN.

  • I CAN'T NECESSARILY SAY THE SAME THING FOR MYSELF.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) SHE DOESN'T HAVE HER MOBILITY,

  • RIGHT, SO SHE CAN'T DO FIGURE FOR HERSELF.

  • SO WHEN SHE HAD HER MOBILITY, SHE MADE THIS.

  • >> James: THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

  • WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING SOMETHING SO PERSONAL.

  • BLESS YOU, BILLY.

  • >> Reggie: WHAT IS BEAUTY?

  • WHAT IS BEAUTY?

  • OOOH!

  • THAT'S A VERY INTERESTING QUESTION.

  • BEAUTY IS THE CAPACITY TO LOVE YOURSELF.

  • THAT IS WHAT BUTTE IS TO ME.

  • ( APPLAUSE ) >> James: ( BLEEP ) BILLY, WE

  • LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
