Bruce Bozzi, executive vice president of Palm Restaurant Group, is longtime partner to CAA managing director Bryan Lourd, Billie’s biological father, who was once Carrie's partner. Bruce and Bryan tied the knot on Oct. 12 at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, but have been together for years. On the day of their wedding, Bruce wrote, “Though we've been married in our hearts for years today The State of California made us legal!" While Carrie was alive, Bruce loved to hang out with her and everyone got along just like one big, modern happy family. Billie had attended the wedding, saying at the time she calls her two dads her “papichulos.”
Bruce posted a snap of Billie with Carrie and Debbie to his Instagram, writing:
“@praisethelourd it's an honor to be your Stepfather. This day, your NYU grad day we had so much fun! Yankee Stadium your mom and I laughed our asses off, as she kept one fantastic line coming after the other - no less when we all fell asleep the night before in the smaller ceremony because it was so boring. Every time Carrie looked at me she said 'how are you still awake!' Your grandmother with our sweet Ava was the kindest most loving. So...as Carrie said to me years ago 'I'm a good stepmother' I promise I will always be & the strength of these women live so vibrantly in you. I've been lucky enough to see this for a decade! Many decades to come.....heaven just got a shit load more fun!!!! I love you @praisethelourd xo Bru”
Bruce just also happens to be the BFF of Andy Cohen.
