In a recent interview with Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes”, Benedetto opened up about her husband’s experience with Alzheimer’s disease, revealing that the 95-year-old does not actually know he is suffering from the disease anymore.

“He recognizes me, thank goodness, his children, we are blessed in a lotta ways. He’s very sweet. He doesn’t know he has it,” Benedetto said.
