    [1] Did Leah Remini's husband (Angelo Pagan) appear on the show several times because he was her husband, or did they meet b/c he was on the show?

    [2] Also, wasn't his character's name "Hector" on the [9th season] episode Affair Trade...?? It's listed - on this site, as well as IMDB.com - as "Derek," but I thought his character's name was "Hector" [who was the boyfriend of the woman who mistakes Doug for another Doug Heffernan, with whom she had a one-night stand].

    1) They met on the show, and his subsequent continued appearances likely started due to their relationship. This show was one of the biggest nepotism farms of its day, with both Kevin James' fiancée, Steffiana de la Cruz, and Jerry Stiller's daughter, Amy, appearing numerous times, and Leah's sister at least once, to say nothing of Gary Valentine being Kevin's brother and Jerry Stiller's wife, Anne Meara, playing Spence's mom.

    2) He's listed on press releases as Derek. He may have used his character name from his previous appearance (which was Hector) and no one bothered to correct him.

    Leah and Angelo met at a cuban restaurant where Angelo was singing.

    They were introduced by a mutual friend.
