Raquel actually works for my family,” the business owner said on the talk show. “She’s been with us for 18 years. She moved with us to Florida from New Jersey. She’s kind of like my everything.”

She continued, “She raised my sister, she helped my mom through cancer. She’s great. She’s a part of my family. She’s not like my nanny, like my babysitter. Nanny is a word that I use for her because I have a lot of respect for her and she’s kind of a mother figure for me, so I don’t like saying cleaning lady or housekeeper.”

This is not the first time Corinne has come to her “nanny’s” defense.
