Cho arrived half an hour late in her big day because of her gown, which was so long, it took five women to help her. While waiting, the groom joked he’ll marry one of the ladies if the bride didn’t show up.

After their marriage, the couple went to the hospital to visit Foxx’s mother, who was unconscious at the time.

We’re going to try to talk to her and try to get her to come through it. I hope this marrige can help my mother open her eyes so I can say, “Here’s your daughter-in-law. 

The pair also visited the Las Vegas Cemetry where Ka Ho’s parents were buried. Their wedding reception was later held at the Hacienda Hotel.

They first met at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in 1983 where Cho was employed. Soon after their first meeting, they started dating and got married.

Ka Ho always backed her husband up even when he was dealing with a lot of bad stuff.

She stuck with me through the IRS mess and everything. She didn’t run like some women would do. She stuck with me and helped me in a whole lot of ways. She saw me through it all. she saw me when I didn’t have a quarter. She saw me with a nickel. And hopefully, she will see me with a dollar. I’ll give her seventy-five cents of it.

Unfortunately, their marriage came to an end in the same year they got married due to the sudden death of the stand-up comedian.
