The friendship between the two families

Beauvais recalled the moment to Cohen on his podcast.

Beauvais shared with  Cohen that since her son Oliver stayed over with the Washingtons, she decided to go to a party. She recalled waking up the next morning looking “like death warmed over.” When someone rang the doorbell to drop Oliver off, it was Denzel. Beauvais thought it might be security dropping off her son.

“No not like this,” she said she thought to herself about Denzel seeing her disheveled

She added with a laugh: “I would have thrown on a gown, hair, and makeup.”
