"So many things I've been dealing with in life—since [the show], I can walk with my head up," Paolo says. "I love myself. I'm the type of person that likes to take care of my family and my friends, but this has been one week that I've taken care of myself, and it feels so good."
We have one more surprise for Paolo: a call from Megan Mullaly, who plays Karen on Will & Grace!
"You're such a lovely guy," she says. "We loved having you here. You have to come back and visit us."
Paolo didn't leave empty handed! To always remember his once-in-a-lifetime gig, the show gave him a cast photo and his very own Will & Grace director's chair!
