David Spade fondly remembers his late sister-in-law Kate Spade.
On Wednesday, the actor appeared on “Good Morning America” and opened up about how he and his family are doing in the wake of the fashion designer’s death.
“[Our family is doing] as good as we can. It’s been very tough, obviously,” he said. “She really made an impact.”
“It’s funny ‘cause every girl I was with or anyone that knew they would see Katie would dress differently,” David continued. “They would bring their A-game. It was very sweet. They would be like, ‘Is Katie coming? Is Katie gonna be there?’ And if [she was], it was a whole new wardrobe. Katie was very sweet. She knew that they were doing that, and then she would… say some compliment. And when I’d say, ‘You don’t dress up for me,’ they’d go, ‘Yeah, that’s her and you’re you.’”
He then said he couldn’t continue talking about Kate because he would “start bawling,” but added: “She was such a beautiful, lovely, great spirit that obviously will be missed.”
She took her own life last month at age 55 and was buried in her hometown of Kansas City, Missouri on June 21.
