Who helped Lionel Richie and the Commodores “MAKE IT?”

Not who you think!

In case you missed it, one of our FAVORITE Throwback acts – and current “American Idol” judge – Lionel Richie was on with Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” on E! late last month.  Andy asked some great questions about Lionel and the Commodores’ early days, but perhaps the most shocking: who helped them get their big break in Hollywood?

YEP: Carrie Fisher’s mom, the woman who helped make the Vegas lifestyle a THING, and the woman who had a BIG heart for others.

Props to Debbie for helping Lionel, the Commodores, and SO MANY OTHERS make it big, so they could do the next thing they did!  (Watch above!)
