Today, we’re joined by Washington and Lesley Ho from the hit docuseries ‘The House of Ho’.
The show is nothing sort of addictive and had me watching it from start to finish in under a week. But what it’s like having a camera crew follow your every move? And how do you persuade your family to go through such an intense experience?
Washington and Lesley tell me everything, including what it’s been like for them growing up in America and why they have such a big love for Texas.
A lovely pair, we have a good laugh chatting about Texas and the show…
