Holly Robinson Peete and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, recently revealed on an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, that having a child with autism has brought their family closer and “taught everybody patience.”
With the Peete’s set to debut their new show, For Peete’s Sake, which focuses on the couple’s children becoming adults, you’ll get to see their son RJ coming into his own. “You get to see through RJ’s journey, something I’ve never seen, which is just him finding his way into the world.”
Rodney adds, “He’s taught everybody tolerance. I think he’s taught everybody love and respect, and that’s what every one of our kids has.”
For Peete’s Sake premieres March 19, but you can catch Oprah: Where Are They Now? Saturdays at 10p.m.
