STRAWT media. Hey guys, welcometo another episode of genuinely Gig. For
the first time ever, genuinely gigis going to do in person, one
on one exclusive interview with none otherthan Randall Emmett. He's going to be
here because he's a good friend ofmine. He trusts me and he knows
that we're just going to really showthe world to the real Randall Emmett is.
The world has heard so many rumorsabout Randall Emmett and La Law's break
up allegations, but we want toget a little insider on Randall and have
him talk to you about his childrenand how he is as a father at
home. He's a big girl dadand he loves one on one time with
his kids. While Lala has beenactively verbal in the press, Randall has
stayed quiet and for the first timewe're going to find out why. You
know her from Shaws of sunset.You know she doesn't hold back. Are
you worried about them? And becausethis day and h everyone google someone before
they date them. Right, itdoesn't matter better celebrity or not. This
is genuinely Gig High Landa, I'mhappy you're here. Yeah, thanks for
having me. Thanks for coming.I know it's not easy for you.
Know, you know that you werevery apprehensive about even coming here, even
though we're good friends and you trustme and I've had your back. You
know, publicly, probably we talkyou vent. You know you're going through
a lot. Yeah, and everyonehas only had one side of it,
unfortunately, and you have kids involved, which just makes everything so messy.
So I really respect as a father, as a man, that you have
stood back and you haven't said onenegative thing publicly, because I know you
and I would say you're just aman. But why? Why haven't you?
Well, first she's the mother ofmy child. So you know,
no matter what happens in life,I will never disparage or talk ill about
her because she's oceans mom. Andso you know, I have two other
kids and I co parent with amberand and in that world, you know
I've never said one negative thing andamber and vice versa. You know,
I think it's just you know,I just think that at the end of
the day, you know, allthe smoke or whatever this may be,
you know I'm not that comfortable inthis, this whole thing, but but
the truth is, you know,I just have to always look at the
big picture, which is she's themother of ocean and I'm always going to
have to, you know, youknow, keep that. You know,
that's just that I just can't talkbadly about the mother of my child.
I just can't do it, nomatter what is said about me or what
she says or you know. Sohow does it feel, because honestly,
it's almost like a every two threedays there is something new that, you
know, we are publicly hearing thatshe is saying about do you does it
hurt? How does it feel personallyinside? Well, I mean it doesn't.
It doesn't feel good. You know, it's you know, I'm working,
you know, to provide for myfamily and my children every day and
spending time with my kids. Look, I always have and at the end
of the day I, you know, just try to keep my head up.
You know, I don't. Iyou know, I just hope that
eventually that stuff subsides and people moveon to something else. You know,
I honestly at the it's just there'salways two sides to every story. But
I I'm just not going to evertake that to the public because, you
know, it's just I just can'tget involved in all, it's just never
going to be who I am.You know, I like making films and
my career and I love my childrenand at the end of the day,
you know, I'm a single dad. Now, you know I've made mistakes,
she's made mistakes, but but I'mnever going to bring that to like
because it's just not the right itfor me. I just don't feel it's
appropriate. I can't tell her whatto do. She's she's a strong woman
and and you know, I justhope that in time, you know,
that kind of all mellows out.I mean, I feel like you are
in a different category of celebrity famein the Hollywood world then, for instance,
them on like Lalla or myself,right where reality stars. I always
consider myself like a D lister,you know I do. If you're dealing,
I would deal ster and I'm likeH no, you're not. No,
really, you have a different statusin this industry than someone like Lawa
does, and I feel like naturally, being in this reality TV world that
I've been in for eleven, twelveyears now, we sort of get attracted
to drama a little bit and wesometimes, whether we're in the press for
good or bad, stuff. Wedon't care sometimes until and let's we have
a little morals within ourselves. Someof US do, some of US don't.
Right. Do you think that thisis going to affect you in your
category of industry, having all thesebad things out there? Because I've seen
you, you and I talk,and I've heard you. You're it's hard
on you and you're worried. Thisis your career, this is your life,
this is how you provide for yourfamily. Can this affect you?
Well, I mean, I thinkit's affected me emotionally. You know,
I think that you know it's hard. You know when your mother sends you
an article or your wow, youknow your friend sent you an article,
it's you know, it's just butI'm probably more upset at the end of
the day that my twelve year oldhas access to stuff on the Internet.
I think that's probably the part thatmet that that's the worst part for me.
But at the end of the day, you know, you know I've
been in this industry for a longtime. People know who I am.
You know my friends and my familyknow who I am and you know we
had a relationship and we broke upand I made mistakes and she made mistakes,
but at the end of the day, like I don't understand. I
don't think I maybe I'm just tooold to understand why. You know why
people you know why it's out therelike that. Every like it's five months
later, you know, but atthe end of the day, you know
it's yeah, really, if Idon't, it's been a minute, but
I'm still reading things. Every weekthere's something and every time I I send
it to you on Mychael Jard LordJesus, how do you feel? Are
you okay, rands all this?I just read this. Are you are
right? Yeah, I think thatfor me, I just I really keep
my head down and I'm trying tofocus on on, for me, what's
important right now, which is,you know, being a dad to my
three girls and to to work andto being, you know, to be
focused on my work. Speaking ofbeing a dad, ocean just heard one.
Yes, congratulation. Thank you bignumber one is a big one.
It was well, especially when youhave two other girls in their twelve and
eight and you haven't seen one andyears. So it's our seven years.
It's been it's been a minute.So one was a big deal. You
know it was. It was a. It was a flashback, but it
was great. We we went,we had a little party at the house
and me oceans once. It's notlike I can know. Yeah, and
my two daughters, London Riley,were there and wish to be their mother.
Amber came by bring ocean presents andand then we went and then and
then this weekend the girls are goingto take her to Disneyland. So we're
all GONS, is we? Yeah, do you and law, law,
are you guys at the place yetwhere you go to each other's birthdays for
the kid daughter? Or not there? I mean, you know, I'm
we're not. No, we're notat that place, but not yet.
Let's say about by the way.She say yeah, I could be at
that place, but you know,that's I have to let law and make
that call. You know that I'moptimistic that you know one day that that
we will be at that place andthat she will be open to that.
But you know, I respect what, however, she wants this to be.
I'm going to be respectful of that. And so she did her own
thing. And and and has itbeen difficult for in your household, because
La La is like your first reallyserious relationship after your marriage and you have
other kids. So she played abig role in your household, right,
like as a I'm sure your kidslooked up to her. Is that?
Yeah, I heard. Yeah,I don't. I really don't want to
touch on. Yeah, I justdon't want to touch on we won't talk
about only because they're my only Idon't want to talk about okay, problem.
I appreciate where. Yeah, yeah, okay, yeah, no problem.
Oh, no, probably you didsay that. You hope that one
day soon your name won't really beall over there press and, you know,
the news in a negative light.And well, I haven't in any
light. I L and good light. I'd be happy just, you know,
going back to being, you know, Randall, the filmmaker and and
and only my community. You don'tknow. I don't know if that's if
that I don't know how it works. I don't know if, like there's
a period where you're an Fleiss celebrityand or age and then and then,
like it takes twelve months and thenyou drop off. Well, I don't
know how it works, but I'mhoping that like in my category of you
know whatever h celebrity, I'm hopingyou're stuck on the age, right,
I think hs think. I don'tthink there's even a Z, because he
would be like, Oh, it'sa book. ND, no, I
think. I think I feel likeif I was. But if that's where
I'm at, if that's where somebodysays I'm that, I would hope that
there's like a time expiration. Ihope that I expire like in twelve months
or something, because it's four months, five months, I thought by now
and I would have expired. Butyeah, so, so, I don't
know. So I it's it's itwas. It was different. You know,
I wasn't prepared for any of thatstuff. You know, I got
in a relationship and she was newon the show and she, you know,
definitely didn't have any celebrity how longafter she was on the show is
this Whoa the all? I mether, look right after the first episode
aired and her first episode, andI think we got together like after,
probably after the season, somewhere aroundthere. And and so that and and
I don't remember the time I butwe met, but then we didn't,
you know, I mean I watchedit on TV with the rest of the
world, because you say, Ionly know that part. Yeah, the
same as the rest of the worldwas the secret boyfriend that bought the Range
Rover, which is look, it'slame. I'm too old for that type
of bullshit. You're too old forthat type of bullshit. You and I
get along so well because we havea like my goodness and like just people
just need to chill the fuck out, mind their own business, kind of
stay in their own lane a littlebit. But that's not what this industry
is about. This industry sort ofdives in and it dives deep in.
It fucking annihilates anything in its paththat tries to stop it. Well,
I agree and I you know,I don't think I knew what I was
I don't think I knew what Iwas signing up for. A meaning I
was signing up for a relationship andI, you know, very much in
love with her and and loved herand and we'll always love her, and
I think that the that world Iwasn't prepared for. You know, I
didn't. I had no idea.I thought you could just date somebody in
that world and they leave you aloneand that person is the star and then,
you know, time goes on andand and people want to know and
then you start realizing and then you'realready so in the relationship, your years
in at that point. But whenI met her, you know, she
was only on the first season.It wasn't should have obviously the big celebrity
that she has today, and she'svery different than too. That's where,
like, she wasn't sober. We'regoing to take a quick break, but
when we come back Katie's very strong. What a strength. I'm stronger,
but I would never diminish someone.I don't supposed to all get married,
first of all, let's just putthat out there. And if I did,
I would never diminish the poor bastard. I was just fucking divorce,
and which I did. I marrieda guy in seven weeks later. Instead
of talking Shit, I signed apaper. It was cool for the world
to watch her get so I wentthrough sobriety. I did a hundred and
twenty days. We have two thousandand five, and I know what happened
with me. Like, over time, I started noticing the people I was
hanging out with weren't serving me ina positive way and I started, you
know, getting rid of certain peopleand introducing different types of people into my
lives that were helping me growing me. Did you see a change like that
shift being so close? You guyswere so close with each other? No,
I don't know. I just Ijust think that, like, no,
I just think that I wasn't preparedfor for what that world has a
store. I mean, I can'tbelieve, you know how nasty people are
to me or to my kids.They don't know me, they never met
me, that they know nothing aboutme, my life or my childhood or
my upbringing and things I've been through, the struggles that I've gone through as
a young person and even today,and they just they just sit at a
computer and fire like the NASTIEST,most evil stuff I've ever seen. Right.
And you know, I have thisnew thing now. When I was
somebody's really mean, like to thepoint where I'm like, they're talking about
my kids or or just, youknow, my family or something. I
now I have a new thing whereI you don't. When I was younger,
I used to maybe come back becauselaw of your stocks, you know,
step back and defend, and she'sgood at that stuff. I'm not
as witty. So now I say, like they say something really mean,
I say I say hi, Judy, it's so nice to hear from you.
I hope you're having a beautiful week. So thank you for the kind
words. So that's what I've beendoing. Now it's actually like therapeutically.
I don't get mad anymore. I'mno, you know, I don't get
frustrate now, I just like agirl the other day, I forgot,
a woman the other day or aguy the other day. Forgot it.
The thing there's a guy on anda woman there. Both were so nasty
and I was like, David,you are the kind. Your words are
so kind, so inspiring. Keepup the happy Monday. Thank you so
much. You know, talk sooncome a kind of I just I just,
I go the complete other way now. Sometimes they just come back over
the top and are an asked her, but a lot of times we're like,
you know, you're right, Ishouldn't have been. I don't really
know you and you know I justdon't know. I don't understand it.
I don't understand when you don't knowsomebody. I mean, I obviously they
know what they read and and Iget at it, but but I mean
to be so angry and so meanand you don't even know. The part's
not like I ran into that personat a restaurant, yeah, and told
him move out of the way,like it's like somebody from Iowa Yea.
So that that's been all. That'sbeen a transition and the whole social media
of it, where it's tough.I felt bad. I'd still do.
I feel bad when I see thesethings coming out of by you. I
care about you a lot and obviouslyI show that in a very different no,
high judy, hope you have agreat day with me. It's get
a fucking life and I kill yourlogic. I kill people with facts and
logic, and I mean people feelstupid about the thing that they were doing.
and honestly, it's just been somuch of it. And I'll be
I don't care if I sound sexistbecause I'm a woman and I can say
this. I do feel like there'sa lot of support, more support behind
women who are heartbroken then a manwho is heartbroken. Yeah, there's been
no room for you to say howyou feel about this breakup. It's a
loss for you, just like itis for her, but no one has
heard that. I have. I'mlucky enough to be your friend and,
you know, hear what you're goingthrough and be there for you, but
the world hasn't heard anything. Theyjust hear a woman scorn and with anger
and rage, you know. SoI'm just I'm so happy you're here.
Happy, here, here I am, I I just I can't, I'm
just never going to really comment onrunning that stuff. I just feel like
what I'm going through and what I'vegone through, what my mistakes and my
accountability and that she also has aside to it, which I, you
know, again, will never gointo. But you know, I feel
like at the end of the day, we have ocean, you know,
we have this beautiful girl that youknow, that is the most important thing
and when I think about all thechaos and the things that peep, I
don't really read stuff anymore at all. I don't. It's just healthier for
me. But when somebody sends mesomething, or my mother will send me
to ask her not to, butshe does. You know, I just
try to think like you know,we have this beautiful girl and she wouldn't
be here if it wasn't for forus, and that that is worth all
of the the the turmoil and theheartbreak and the pain that that, you
know, is gone on. I'mnot saying that I'm happy about any of
it. I'm not. I'm sad, but at the same time I have
ocean, she has ocean, andI think we both would say that,
you know, we have her outof this and and and how can we
not be grateful? And that's howI feel. So I so that's why
I'll never you know, I justcan't go down that road of like you
know my feelings, because my feelingsare not in my opinion, they're just
not relevant on a public platform.Right. Yeah, and I think you're
absolutely a great father and I'm justocean. But I'll tell your children and
I see you're always actively with them, playing with them and just doing fun
things, yeah, for them,which is Great. I didn't have my
dad was a workaholic, which hebuilt what he built, yeah, which
I'm grateful for, but I reallysee your post and your videos and I
just wish I had more of thatwith my dad. You know my dad.
Yeah, I met you. MyDad like because a Lallah. Yeah,
punker. Yeah, that's awesome,and he came to a charity thing
for what was the LAPD? Yeah, it was. My Dad was like
best. He's with the chief.Yeah, my dad's designed all the precincts
and you know Polane stay. Yeah, no, wevent. We met there
playing poker and then your dad andI were in the final table. Or
Yeah, you know was it wasfun and then you lost and then you
were giving my dad tips on howdo we yes, the guys which be
coaching poker. Is kind of likea joke. But anyway, that was
that was a lot of fun.I yeah, well, you haven't taught
ocean pickle ball yet. I'm trying. I she loves the ball. She
holds the ball all day. Thismorning the ball is her obsession, at
least in my house and then,but now the balloon is the obsession.
Like this morning we were watching TVand she's laying in bed with the balloon
for an hour. Did Not letgo of the balloon. Shoot, the
balloon is more exciting than anything rightnow. But the ball is big.
The pickle balls big, big.She likes to watch me play or she
watches her sister's play. Yeah,but yeah, I think. I mean,
listen, Laala's athletic. I'm,I don't know, pretend on athletic.
I mean, if you'd really picka ball, you have to have
a pickleball players Beamina and yeah,that's not an easy you gotta keep moving.
Yes, I'm a good pickleball player. I don't never get any other
sports, but I'm good at yourdevoted. I'm committed. You send me
links to random pickle ball shit thatI'm like Randall, I am not interested.
Pickle ball is fase. Oh myGod. Yeah, what is up
with pickle ball? What do youhave in store with the pickleball world?
You know, I'm in the middleof buying, closing a deal right now
of buying an APP, a bigAPP in the pickleball community, which we
want to grow and turn into like, because we see the sport as a
two thousand and twenty eight Olympic game, and that's why most people see it
as and we see it's a fastestscoring sport in the United States. And
for my for my audience out there, that just but I learned what pickle
ball was via grandall that doll forthose you don't know what pickle ball is,
wood is pick a ball. Pickleball is like a small version of
tennis, except you play with likea fiberglass racket or a graphic racket with
no strings. It's a whiffleball,not a tennis, wilful whiffle, whiffle,
and it's like it's with full it'slight and it's a very small court.
So what makes it great? Ithink why people in this country are
addicted is because you could be anyage with very little athletic ability and you
could still come out and play thefirst time tennis. Because, I wrote,
a lot of people play tennis beforethey play bogball tennis. You have
to be a certain level to playwith somebody at your level. Like I
can't go out in tennis a playwith a beginner because it will be torture.
Write. The ball be going overthe hey, the part. So
where's whiffleball? It's so easy thatthe Cortis was small, that I can
go out there like I go outthere by twelve year old, even though
she's been taking what is a listfootball or pickleball? It's called pickleball but
it's played with a whiffleball. Playwhat will I don't know why. Let's
attend twist. The should be calleda football. Is pickleballs, like you
know that odd thing, but Um, anyway. So it's a very easy
game and people of every age playand it's really becoming a big, big,
big sport. It's number one inAmerica. It's growing at us a
rate that's unbelievable. We just hadthe PPA tour, which is the big
ball pro tour, bought by abillionaire named Tom Dundin. So He's dumping
an incredible our money. So thatit's just you're getting a lot of love
of people into the game. It'sthe game. But Yeah, you've got
a lot of celebrities that play it. I'm putting on a big PROAM next
year in La and Bob. Soyeah, I you blew it up on
a vander pump rules. Dude.I think that's the way a lot of
people who even learned about it was. I think that's the reason I appears
it was just hilarious and you werejust getting all involved. Yeah, it's
do you still play with pickle ball? Do they ever come over and play
pickleball with you? Are they onlylawlaw side now? No, I mean,
what's they're always gonna be all housethe court. Jacks Jackson, I'm
been friends for for forever and we'restill friends. I mean we had lunch
yesterday and the sweetheart and he's alwaysbeen a friend to me and I was
be a friend of him, andTom Words and I still talk and I
know that he's now going through areally tough time. And you guys are
cool. Yeah, at least theybumped you out of the press and they
came into the press ahead of you. Now, where we should thank them
for there they're supposed. I don'tknow. They're divorcing or they're separated.
I don't know. I read whatyou read, but you know. But,
but thing is, I don't wantto see anybody go through anything and
I you know, my heart goesout to Tom and I'm happy for Tom
I honest to God. He's sucha sweet guy and he deserves to be
with someone who values him and notdiminishes him. It's so fucked up.
We watch it on camera, weand there's like, listen, I'm on
a reality show. There's cameras inthe room, you're miked up and you're
diminishing your husband and mom, mom, be right there, hitters running.
Okay, listen, I've been forthe I want to say for the rest.
I am not honestly, and it'snot. She died. Katie's very
strong. What a strength. I'mstronger, but I would never diminish someone.
I don't supposed to all get married, first of all. Let's just
put that out there. And ifI did, I would never diminish the
poor bastard. I'm just fucking divorcethem, which I did. I married
a guy and seven weeks later,instead of talking Shit, I signed a
paper. Okay, everybody, Ithink, does it in their own yeah,
is the right way. When I'llarguing with are you with anybody these
days, all I'm gonna say isthis. I think any time people break
up it's a it's a sad andday thing and I'm sure they're both going
through a really difficult time, honestly. And Yeah, and I know that
I've known them both, this isyou're a big teddy bear, you're softy,
and that's why it's sad for you. I like, yes, do
you want my divorce attorney? Ohmy God, got you, boy,
I got you covered. I'll sendmy divorce attorney over. Okay, yeah,
she's really good. That's good.Yeah, it's great divorce attorney,
by the way, just in caseof your future. I yeah, are
you? Are you dating? I'mdating, but I'm not dating like exclusively
anybody like. I know there's theirstuff out, though that says I am,
but whatever, I'm not. Andand right now I'm just trying to
get my feet on the ground,you know, I'm just trying to figure
out life. I'm focused right nowand making sure my my work is providing
for my family and doing that andbeing there for my kids and and I'm
just dating and figuring things out.And at the time, yeah, I
just I think I need time toreally get my head back to to that
place. Like you know, thisis it's one thing to go through a
breakup, it's another thing to gothrough a break up the way that I've
had to go through a breakup.Yeah, and I'm not looking for any
sympathy of any sort. I justI wasn't prepared for this kind of thing.
And and so it's a little moreintense than, yeah, you know,
sitting in your house and going throughit. You know, you're kind
of it's kind of everywhere and everybodyis aware. So it's like, you
know, everybody you know worried aboutthat. I mean because this day and
each everyone google someone before they datethem. Right, it doesn't matter if
that was your case, you getgoogled. Well, that's AK. If
that's the case, because I willfirst sugar totty and now you're your jus.
Are you worried that, like you'reobviously, is it if my daily
life is going to be dictated byright, by the Internet? Would it
be? I'M gonna be a worriedabout that. Know that I'm be alone
the rest of my life. Ifyeah, no. Um, are you
worried that you might get a certaintype, you might attract a certain type?
Honestly, my head, first itwas about you being you are Sugar
Daddy, and I think that everyonewas. I hands. Let me try
to get in on that Sugar Daddy, you know. And then now these
this whole other perceptions being put outthere. Do you think one will outweigh
the other? Do you think peopleforget about it all? Are you worried
at all? I don't think aboutthat stuff. Honestly, I don't.
I really don't. I just Ijust tried. You my thing every day
and and you know, fifty yearsold, like the Internet is, it's
a world that I don't understand.I you know, unfortunately, I just
don't. I don't understand how,you know, people just can say anything
they want and and just it justand so for me, you know,
I feel like when I start datingseriously, I will that person will not,
hopefully, care about the booth.Yeah, I mean it just that
stuff, you know. You know, I I think at the end of
the day, I it's so farout of my realm right now. Like
right now it's really just I havethree girls and they take up a lot
of my I mean you have ayou have a child. So you know,
one child takes up in your andyour full time. You know,
your full time. So you know, I'm sharing custody anywhere to drop off
my kid right, right, andand so I have so I have to
balance a job and making sure thatmy girls also have my attention. So
right now there's just I think it'sgoing to take me a minute. If
are you can do yeah, becauseI because I have to. Yeah,
because I have to got to balanceall this stuff. I have to balance
like, okay, I'm home forthis amount of hours and I can go
to the office and do that,then I have to go on a set
and and then I come home againand as I'm just trying to juggle and
I think that'll take me a whileand I think it's going to take me
time to get through all this stuffand and and be okay. And I
think what she's once I get tothat place, then I could that.
Then maybe I'll be more concerned aboutthat. Like what what are the you
know, what are people are goingto think? But I don't think I
even think that way because I'm okay, you know, having to balance my
responsibilities, which are every day,you know, full stop to the Brim.
We're going to take a quick break, but when we come back,
you guys talk to an APP rightnow, though, because of the court
stuff we do. Do you,you, and I know you do,
wish it would get to a betterplace where you guys can communicate, hopefully.
Well, yeah, I mean,listen, we talk about ocean and
I think it's a good idea foryou in law, Alaw, to get
to a good place. You know, because I know that your mother,
of your other children. You guysare in a good place and you guys
co parent. We always have been. We always have it as are cool
you guys. So that's a greatplace to be for a child to see
their parents be in that happy place. And then when you want to start
dating, it's so much easier forthe new person in your life, for
you, the children involved, thateveryone's just in a happy trusting yeah,
and again and again, at theend of the day, that really co
parenting is the only focus of mine, you know. Yeah, you guys
talk to an APP right now,though, because of the court stuff we
do, do you? You,and I know you do, wish it
would get to a better place whereyou guys can communicate, hopefully. Well,
yeah, I mean, listen,we talk about ocean, you know,
and that's and, that's and that'sit and and and, honestly,
as long as we're talking about ourdaughter, I mean that's the most important
thing. The rest of it's notright to me. The rest of it
is what it is. You know, I think to other people it's more
exciting and important, but to me, you know, you've never responded to
her like, Oh my God,why did you say this about me?
Now? I mean, I'm just, you know, she listen, she's
she's a great mother, you know, I'm a great father. And and
and oceans. I and, myopinion, very lucky to have two parents
who love her, you know,as much as we both do. And
and at the end of the day, you know, that's all I can
ask for. I really I can'task for anything more than that. I
you know, I've of course,I'm hopeful in the future that, you
know, I hope that we'll getto a place of being of the CO
parenting being maybe a little more fluid. But at the end of the day,
you know, we're co parenting andand and that's that's it. My
focus is ocean. My focus isnot anything else right now. and and
London and Riley. Obviously that's beenmy focus until ocean was born. So,
you know, I have three girlsthat I have to be responsible to
and and the rest of like themechanical of it, you know, don't
they're not. As you know,I don't let them kind of take over
as much. I think that.I think that. I really, you
know, I just want to bethe best co parent I can be and
and whatever version that is going tobe right now, I support, you
know, and I'm going to lether you know if she's not ready to
to do more than what we're doing, it's okay, you know, like
that, like oceans loved very muchby her and she's love very much by
me. I mean her sisters athome are infatuated, you know, Riley
carries ocean around like it's her baby. You know, Riley gets mad when
Ohan doesn't want to let go myshirt. Riley will say, you know,
dad, this is a fair Iwant ocean and I'm like, you
gotta Let your Dad Have Ocean forit. Yeah, yeah, I'm like.
I'm like, Riley, you gottaLet Your Dad have her for a
minute. And she's like Dad,and I'm like trying to give her to
it somebody. So she's like holy, out of my shirt and I just
let daddy have her for like twominutes, five minutes. Let me just
have a few minute and but butRiley loves being the big sister. She
loves playing with her. And thenLondon, who I really really thought,
you know, because teenagers like theyyou know, want a new baby becomes
it's like you deal with kind ofthe weight of attention, and London did.
I did deal with that in thebeginning. London really struggle in the
early months of like well, it'slittle baby, it just sleeps and eat.
Should really but now ocean has sucha big personality. Now London's like
I want to hold her, Iwant to play with her. So now
it's like now it's like they andthey came up with the idea to go
to Dizzeland. So we want totake ocean to Disneyland. This would be
so that's a fun yeah, thefact that you have that understanding says a
lot about you and you're not obliviousto having such a huge age difference in
yeah, siblings, that you're recognizingthat this one is an active teenager.
Yeah, this in this in life, and here's a two year one year
old, yeah, who's just startingout in life. Yeah, and you
got to separate and define your attentionand how you just dress. Oh,
it's that's the most complated thing,because I'm stuck at all my kids are
three years old. Still like it, like London, Riley, I still
look at them as their three.So I have a big problem which I've
had to address, that even mytwelve year old has sit downs with me
now where she said the other dayand then her mother amber, called the
amber, because you know, youneed to take London to do different things
and you take with Riley and I'mlike, but but she was like five
the other day. How was shetwelve? So, yeah, that's that's
the hardest part for me. Sonow, after I had an emotional the
time I had the emotional breakdown waswhen we were in the mall and and
she and I brought her girlfriend withher and they went to the mall and
or it was a grover was themall I fair out where one of the
West field. I want of them, and we go there and I walk
in in London and her girlfriend go, Dad, we're gonna go to these
couple stores and then we back inlike thirty minutes and I go what?
Like I've had them attached at myhip. Anywhere we go and I'm like
what do you mean thirty minutes?And she's like and then her girlfriend's like,
no, we'll be back you.We have our phones, you can
call us. My mom does itall the time. And I was like,
all right, you go to thatstore and I'm going to watch.
And so she goes to stores likesix feet away and I call amber.
I'm like amber, what is goingon? And she's like no, no,
this is what you have to letthem have their events and I was
like, I put the phone down. I was like bawling, like in
the mall by myself. So gothard for her father's when they have daughters
it's a very different thing with boys. Thinker. Yeah, boy, it's
like very different. He's going tofootball practics. I get up, figure
it out, get it together.He did. I was like walk off.
Yeah, I had a son andit would be very, very different,
because I wanted to be like Yo, let's go kick in the backyard,
let's go play, but now.So that was a big change.
So now I'm really good at becauseLondon will come to me and say,
Dad, I want to go,I want to go to the mall,
but I really don't want Riley coming. I want it to just be you
and I. So I'll say toRiley, are you cool with the hanging
with ocean? It's like yeah,she's like good to go. So I
take Oh, I take lone it, we go shopping, I help her
get whatever she wants and the theclothes furst she needs and then we have
like a great two hours that shecomes home and she's happy. So I've
learned and learning. It took along time. I was still take her
to do shit that five year olds. So are you you high five for
that? Yeah, that's really yeah, dad behavior. That's yeah, I
commend you for that. And peopledon't realize that about you because they don't
know anything about you. But youlove kids. Yeah, yeah, you're
just a great dad. You're veryhands on and you know that's awesome and
I hope all that negative shit goesout of the way soon because your kids
are getting older and that's that's theonly part. Bigger and bigger and more
accessible to kids. So I hopethat they don't have to see much more
and I just I do to.I well, would you, if you
have to say one last thing thatwas maybe your takeaway from and it doesn't
have to be just from law,law situation, but just in the last
I don't know, ten years,what have you been what have you learned?
What have you come across and changedabout yourself in general? I think
I'm more patient, you know,I really, I really I didn't have
a lot of patients as a youngerperson. You know, I have a
lot of energy, naturally, butI think at fifty I kind of a
more tolerant of things. I thinkthat. You know, if you ask
me fifteen years ago and this washappening, you know, maybe I would
have opened my mouth and not thoughtfirst it alliated. Maybe, maybe,
probably, I probably would have beenlike. You know, I probably have
been like what will you know?I have something to say right today.
I think about ocean, I thinkabout London, I think about Riley.
You know, when it comes tospeaking publicly, you know, everybody makes
mistakes and everybody's nobody's perfect. Youknow, if we had to take a
magn to find last everybody's life,everybody is is is, has fault and
and makes you know, I atthe end of the day, I you
know, I'm moving forward and,you know, again always being a dad
that I've been. But I thinkI'm more tolerant today and I think that
I'm more patient and, you know, and in being understand, more understanding.
Yeah, and I think that.I think that life, if you
have your health, you know,your healthy. You know there's a lot
of people that don't have that andwe forget that the little things in life
like health and children and your children'shealth and your family's health. I mean
family health. By I have friends. I have a friend specifically who's got
a child that's very sick, andI mean the pain and the in,
the in the sadness that he hasto face daily. It puts like when
I see him, it puts itin perspective, because I'm like, you
know, pray for him, forhis for his child, and and so,
you know, we're given a blessingand you know, unfortunately, you
know, nobody's perfect and I thinkthat sometimes we think everybody should be perfect
and we have to be forgiving.You know about it. Yeah, because
none of us are perfect and weall fuck up and and we all have
and and and we all have mademistakes, not just you know, you
know not everybody owns all their mistakes. But but that's the thing right there.
Yeah, issues. Everyone's a judge, but not everyone can take accountability
correct and that's the Internet rolls andall that bullshit that we deal with in
this modern day society. It's justpeople who just go on and type some
shit up and it just goes viraland all of a sudden it's something that
never even existed. So it's just, yeah, yeah, stay woke people.
I don't know how you do it. I know that you do it
on your show every day and Ihad a very small taste of it and
it was a large enough taste forme that you know, understand that it's
a lot like have you've been onthat show for how many years you're shore
shaws is, Geez, we justa couple days ago it was ten years
from the first episode. Are Okayabout eleven years? I mean, that's
true. I can't imagine the elevenyears of the up and down. And,
by the way, it seems like, and I've I was to guess,
when you started eleven years ago,the social media press wasn't like it
is today. So you so differentright then? Right. So today,
very competitive. It's just weird.Right. There's no respect, I think,
and that's why I understand, likeDenzel Washington always says, I'm not
going to get on Instagram, becausethe more exclusive you are, the more
people want you, the more thatdepend is. But literally it's shifting.
It's more available you are, themore but want of you. Look at
Kim Kardashian falls like twenty times aday. She was. She what she
posts. So she doesn times aday if she posts so much. So
there's something I think I followed.I think I forty. I don't get
it. I don't know if Ifollow her, I don't remember. But
you don't follow Kim Karda know.I don't know if I did, and
I can't be friend he is life? Oh, no, I did,
everybody. I mean when she wascaught fucking rage a, not necessarily caught,
but like you know, old holdproduced, crisp produced. Yeah,
we know how that happens. Holdon, hold on it, wait,
but wait. So, but shepost that much? She does. She
post a lot. It's turning into. I think that's just what social media
I don't follow, I don't followhim Kardashians, but I follow. I
follow Courtney. Oh, she's theonly Kardashian I do. That shows you,
that shows you how how to touchon her because of who she's seeing
now. That's why. No,I think I followed her because I knew
Scott, you know, back inthe day, and like and I and
and, I don't even know.Yeah, I think it's at least interesting
to watch. Now, I'm kidding. Oh God, I'm kidding. Your
kidding. No, I love butwhat an amazing empire they've built. I
mean that's I mean, come on, I mean they're I mean get and
this new deal at Hulu, whichI'm not even a big Kardashian, fills
every time I think about it.By the way, that trailer they put
out was was epic. I diedand I don't even I don't even watch
