In an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Charo gives viewers a rare glimpse inside her life and introduces her son, Shel Rasten -- who talks about growing up with such a famously flamboyant mother.
The Spanish-American actress even dishes on the origins of her multimillion dollar catchphrase, cuchi cuchi.
"What cuchi cuchi came from is such a disappointment for everybody when they know, because everybody thinks that is sex. C-U-C-H-I-L-L-O -- that was the name of my dog," she explains. "He was a mix between a St. Bernard and a pit bull. I make a joke about that. First, he bite you and then he run for help. But, I call him 'cuchi cuchi.' He have a problem in the back so when the dog wiggle, he don't wiggle like a dog, he wiggle up front -- up front I swear. Never in my mind was sex. Cuchi cuchi showed me the way to the bank, so thank you very much, everybody."
