Julie Chen is grateful to her grandfather for teaching her a valuable life lesson.
On Thursday's episode of The Talk, 46-year-old Chen revealed that both her great-grandmother and aunt were kidnapped, taken hostage and threatened to be killed by bandits until her businessman grandfather paid the ransom.
"Because he was wealthy and well-known, this put a target on his back. People knew who he was, so bandits one day kidnapped his elderly mother and one of his teenage daughters – my mom's sister. These two women were held hostage and the bandits said that they would kill them if a large ransom wasn't paid for in exchange," the talk show host explained to viewers.
