STRAWT media. Hey guys, welcome to another episode of genuinely Gig. For the first time ever, genuinely gig is going to do in person, one on one exclusive interview with none other than Randall Emmett. He's going to be here because he's a good friend of mine. He trusts me and he knows that we're just going to really show the world to the real Randall Emmett is. The world has heard so many rumors about Randall Emmett and La Law's break up allegations, but we want to get a little insider on Randall and have him talk to you about his children and how he is as a father at home. He's a big girl dad and he loves one on one time with his kids. While Lala has been actively verbal in the press, Randall has stayed quiet and for the first time we'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 because this day and h everyone google someone before they date them. Right, it doesn't matter better celebrity or not. This is genuinely Gig High Landa, I'm happy you're here. Yeah, thanks for having me. Thanks for coming. I know it's not easy for you. Know, you know that you were very apprehensive about even coming here, even though we're good friends and you trust me and I've had your back. You know, publicly, probably we talk you vent. You know you're going through a lot. Yeah, and everyone has 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 one negative thing publicly, because I know you and I would say you're just a man. But why? Why haven't you? Well, first she's the mother of my child. So you know, no matter what happens in life, I will never disparage or talk ill about her because she's oceans mom. And so you know, I have two other kids and I co parent with amber and and in that world, you know I've never said one negative thing and amber and vice versa. You know, I think it's just you know, I just think that at the end of the day, you know, all the smoke or whatever this may be, you know I'm not that comfortable in this, this whole thing, but but the truth is, you know, I just have to always look at the big picture, which is she's the mother of ocean and I'm always going to have to, you know, you know, keep that. You know, that's just that I just can't talk badly about the mother of my child. I just can't do it, no matter what is said about me or what she says or you know. So how does it feel, because honestly, it's almost like a every two three days there is something new that, you know, we are publicly hearing that she is saying about do you does it hurt? How does it feel personally inside? 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 my family 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. I you know, I just hope that eventually that stuff subsides and people move on to something else. You know, I honestly at the it's just there's always two sides to every story. But I I'm just not going to ever take that to the public because, you know, it's just I just can't get 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 children and 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'm never going to bring that to like because it's just not the right it for me. I just don't feel it's appropriate. I can't tell her what to do. She's she's a strong woman and and you know, I just hope that in time, you know, that kind of all mellows out. I mean, I feel like you are in a different category of celebrity fame in 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 like H no, you're not. No, really, you have a different status in 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, twelve years now, we sort of get attracted to drama a little bit and we sometimes, whether we're in the press for good or bad, stuff. We don't care sometimes until and let's we have a little morals within ourselves. Some of US do, some of US don't. Right. Do you think that this is going to affect you in your category of industry, having all these bad 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. This is your career, this is your life, this is how you provide for your family. Can this affect you? Well, I mean, I think it'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, you know your friend sent you an article, it's you know, it's just but I'm probably more upset at the end of the day that my twelve year old has access to stuff on the Internet. I think that's probably the part that met 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 long time. People know who I am. You know my friends and my family know who I am and you know we had a relationship and we broke up and 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 too old to understand why. You know why people you know why it's out there like that. Every like it's five months later, you know, but at the end of the day, you know it's yeah, really, if I don't, it's been a minute, but I'm still reading things. Every week there's something and every time I I send it to you on Mychael Jard Lord Jesus, how do you feel? Are you okay, rands all this? I just read this. Are you are right? Yeah, I think that for me, I just I really keep my head down and I'm trying to focus on on, for me, what's important right now, which is, you know, being a dad to my three girls and to to work and to being, you know, to be focused on my work. Speaking of being a dad, ocean just heard one. Yes, congratulation. Thank you big number one is a big one. It was well, especially when you have two other girls in their twelve and eight and you haven't seen one and years. 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 not like I can know. Yeah, and my two daughters, London Riley, were there and wish to be their mother. Amber came by bring ocean presents and and then we went and then and then this weekend the girls are going to take her to Disneyland. So we're all GONS, is we? Yeah, do you and law, law, are you guys at the place yet where 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 not at 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'm optimistic that you know one day that that we will be at that place and that 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 it been difficult for in your household, because La La is like your first really serious relationship after your marriage and you have other kids. So she played a big role in your household, right, like as a I'm sure your kids looked up to her. Is that? Yeah, I heard. Yeah, I don't. I really don't want to touch on. Yeah, I just don't want to touch on we won't talk about only because they're my only I don't want to talk about okay, problem. I appreciate where. Yeah, yeah, okay, yeah, no problem. Oh, no, probably you did say that. You hope that one day soon your name won't really be all 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't know. 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 celebrity and or age and then and then, like it takes twelve months and then you drop off. Well, I don't know how it works, but I'm hoping that like in my category of you know whatever h celebrity, I'm hoping you're stuck on the age, right, I think hs think. I don't think there's even a Z, because he would be like, Oh, it's a book. ND, no, I think. I think I feel like if I was. But if that's where I'm at, if that's where somebody says I'm that, I would hope that there's like a time expiration. I hope 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. But yeah, so, so, I don't know. So I it's it's it was. It was different. You know, I wasn't prepared for any of that stuff. You know, I got in a relationship and she was new on the show and she, you know, definitely didn't have any celebrity how long after she was on the show is this Whoa the all? I met her, look right after the first episode aired and her first episode, and I think we got together like after, probably after the season, somewhere around there. And and so that and and I don't remember the time I but we met, but then we didn't, you know, I mean I watched it on TV with the rest of the world, because you say, I only know that part. Yeah, the same as the rest of the world was the secret boyfriend that bought the Range Rover, which is look, it's lame. I'm too old for that type of bullshit. You're too old for that type of bullshit. You and I get along so well because we have a 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 little bit. But that's not what this industry is about. This industry sort of dives in and it dives deep in. It fucking annihilates anything in its path that 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 I was signing up for. A meaning I was signing up for a relationship and I, you know, very much in love with her and and loved her and and we'll always love her, and I think that the that world I wasn'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 alone and that person is the star and then, you know, time goes on and and and people want to know and then you start realizing and then you're already so in the relationship, your years in at that point. But when I 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's very different than too. That's where, like, she wasn't sober. We're going 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 put that out there. And if I did, I would never diminish the poor bastard. I was just fucking divorce, and which I did. I married a guy in seven weeks later. Instead of talking Shit, I signed a paper. It was cool for the world to watch her get so I went through sobriety. I did a hundred and twenty days. We have two thousand and 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 in a positive way and I started, you know, getting rid of certain people and 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 guys were so close with each other? No, I don't know. I just I just think that, like, no, I just think that I wasn't prepared for for what that world has a store. I mean, I can't believe, 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 about me, 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 this new thing now. When I was somebody's really mean, like to the point where I'm like, they're talking about my kids or or just, you know, my family or something. I now I have a new thing where I you don't. When I was younger, I used to maybe come back because law of your stocks, you know, step back and defend, and she's good 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 been doing. Now it's actually like therapeutically. I don't get mad anymore. I'm no, you know, I don't get frustrate now, I just like a girl the other day, I forgot, a woman the other day or a guy the other day. Forgot it. The thing there's a guy on and a woman there. Both were so nasty and I was like, David, you are the kind. Your words are so kind, so inspiring. Keep up the happy Monday. Thank you so much. You know, talk soon come 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, I shouldn't have been. I don't really know you and you know I just don't know. I don't understand it. I don't understand when you don't know somebody. I mean, I obviously they know what they read and and I get at it, but but I mean to be so angry and so mean and you don't even know. The part's not like I ran into that person at 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's been 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 these things coming out of by you. I care about you a lot and obviously I show that in a very different no, high judy, hope you have a great day with me. It's get a fucking life and I kill your logic. I kill people with facts and logic, and I mean people feel stupid about the thing that they were doing. and honestly, it's just been so much of it. And I'll be I don't care if I sound sexist because I'm a woman and I can say this. I do feel like there's a lot of support, more support behind women who are heartbroken then a man who is heartbroken. Yeah, there's been no room for you to say how you feel about this breakup. It's a...

...loss for you, just like it is for her, but no one has heard that. I have. I'm lucky enough to be your friend and, you know, hear what you're going through and be there for you, but the world hasn't heard anything. They just hear a woman scorn and with anger and rage, you know. So I'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 on running that stuff. I just feel like what I'm going through and what I've gone through, what my mistakes and my accountability and that she also has a side to it, which I, you know, again, will never go into. But you know, I feel like at the end of the day, we have ocean, you know, we have this beautiful girl that you know, that is the most important thing and when I think about all the chaos 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 me something, or my mother will send me to ask her not to, but she 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 for us, and that that is worth all of the the the turmoil and the heartbreak and the pain that that, you know, is gone on. I'm not 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, and I think we both would say that, you know, we have her out of this and and and how can we not be grateful? And that's how I feel. So I so that's why I'll never you know, I just can't go down that road of like you know my feelings, because my feelings are 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 just ocean. 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 he built what he built, yeah, which I'm grateful for, but I really see your post and your videos and I just wish I had more of that with my dad. You know my dad. Yeah, I met you. My Dad 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 and I were in the final table. Or Yeah, you know was it was fun and then you lost and then you were giving my dad tips on how do we yes, the guys which be coaching poker. Is kind of like a 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. This morning 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 TV and she's laying in bed with the balloon for an hour. Did Not let go of the balloon. Shoot, the balloon is more exciting than anything right now. 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 pick a 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 your devoted. I'm committed. You send me links to random pickle ball shit that I'm like Randall, I am not interested. Pickle ball is fase. Oh my God. Yeah, what is up with pickle ball? What do you have in store with the pickleball world?...

You know, I'm in the middle of buying, closing a deal right now of buying an APP, a big APP 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 fastest scoring 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 for those you don't know what pickle ball is, wood is pick a ball. Pickle ball is like a small version of tennis, except you play with like a 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's light and it's a very small court. So what makes it great? I think why people in this country are addicted is because you could be any age with very little athletic ability and you could still come out and play the first time tennis. Because, I wrote, a lot of people play tennis before they play bogball tennis. You have to be a certain level to play with somebody at your level. Like I can't go out in tennis a play with a beginner because it will be torture. Write. The ball be going over the hey, the part. So where's whiffleball? It's so easy that the Cortis was small, that I can go out there like I go out there by twelve year old, even though she's been taking what is a list football or pickleball? It's called pickleball but it's played with a whiffleball. Play what will I don't know why. Let's attend twist. The should be called a football. Is pickleballs, like you know that odd thing, but Um, anyway. So it's a very easy game and people of every age play and it's really becoming a big, big, big sport. It's number one in America. It's growing at us a rate that's unbelievable. We just had the PPA tour, which is the big ball pro tour, bought by a billionaire named Tom Dundin. So He's dumping an incredible our money. So that it's just you're getting a lot of love of people into the game. It's the 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. So yeah, 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 were just 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 only lawlaw side now? No, I mean, what's they're always gonna be all house the court. Jacks Jackson, I'm been friends for for forever and we're still friends. I mean we had lunch yesterday and the sweetheart and he's always been a friend to me and I was be a friend of him, and Tom Words and I still talk and I know that he's now going through a really tough time. And you guys are cool. Yeah, at least they bumped 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't know. They're divorcing or they're separated. I don't know. I read what you read, but you know. But, but thing is, I don't want to see anybody go through anything and I you know, my heart goes out to Tom and I'm happy for Tom I honest to God. He's such a sweet guy and he deserves to be with someone who values him and not diminishes him. It's so fucked up. We watch it on camera, we and there's like, listen, I'm on a reality show. There's cameras in the room, you're miked up and you're diminishing your husband and mom, mom, be right there, hitters running. Okay, listen, I've been for the I want to say for the rest. I am not honestly, and it's not. She died. 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 put that out there. And if I did, I would never diminish the poor bastard. I'm just fucking divorce them, which I did. I married a guy and seven weeks later, instead of talking Shit, I signed a paper. Okay, everybody, I think, does it in their own yeah, is the right way. When I'll arguing with are you with anybody these days, all I'm gonna say is this. I think any time people break...

...up it's a it's a sad and day 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 is you'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? Oh my God, got you, boy, I got you covered. I'll send my divorce attorney over. Okay, yeah, she's really good. That's good. Yeah, it's great divorce attorney, by the way, just in case of your future. I yeah, are you? Are you dating? I'm dating, but I'm not dating like exclusively anybody like. I know there's their stuff out, though that says I am, but whatever, I'm not. And and 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 now and making sure my my work is providing for my family and doing that and being 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 to really get my head back to to that place. Like you know, this is it's one thing to go through a breakup, it's another thing to go through 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 just I wasn't prepared for this kind of thing. And and so it's a little more intense than, yeah, you know, sitting in your house and going through it. You know, you're kind of it's kind of everywhere and everybody is aware. So it's like, you know, everybody you know worried about that. I mean because this day and each everyone google someone before they date them. Right, it doesn't matter if that was your case, you get googled. Well, that's AK. If that's the case, because I will first sugar totty and now you're your jus. Are you worried that, like you're obviously, is it if my daily life is going to be dictated by right, by the Internet? Would it be? I'M gonna be a worried about that. Know that I'm be alone the rest of my life. If yeah, no. Um, are you worried that you might get a certain type, you might attract a certain type? Honestly, my head, first it was about you being you are Sugar Daddy, and I think that everyone was. I hands. Let me try to get in on that Sugar Daddy, you know. And then now these this whole other perceptions being put out there. Do you think one will outweigh the other? Do you think people forget about it all? Are you worried at all? I don't think about that stuff. Honestly, I don't. I really don't. I just I just tried. You my thing every day and and you know, fifty years old, 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 just and so for me, you know, I feel like when I start dating seriously, 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 far out of my realm right now. Like right now it's really just I have three girls and they take up a lot of my I mean you have a you have a child. So you know, one child takes up in your and your full time. You know, your full time. So you know, I'm sharing custody anywhere to drop off my kid right, right, and and so I have so I have to balance a job and making sure that my girls also have my attention. So right now there's just I think it's going to take me a minute. If are you can do yeah, because I because I have to. Yeah, because I have to got to balance all this stuff. I have to balance like, okay, I'm home for this 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 again and as I'm just trying to juggle and I think that'll take me a while and I think it's going to take me time to get through all this stuff and and and be okay. And I think what she's once I get to that place, then I could that. Then maybe I'll be more concerned about that. Like what what are the you...

...know, what are people are going to 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 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 where you guys can communicate, hopefully. Well, yeah, I mean, listen, we talk about ocean and I think it's a good idea for you in law, Alaw, to get to a good place. You know, because I know that your mother, of your other children. You guys are 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 great place 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 for the new person in your life, for you, the children involved, that everyone's just in a happy trusting yeah, and again and again, at the end 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 where you guys can communicate, hopefully. Well, yeah, I mean, listen, we talk about ocean, you know, and that's and, that's and that's it and and and, honestly, as long as we're talking about our daughter, I mean that's the most important thing. The rest of it's not right 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, my opinion, 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't ask 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 get to 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 and and and that's that's it. My focus is ocean. My focus is not anything else right now. and and London and Riley. Obviously that's been my focus until ocean was born. So, you know, I have three girls that I have to be responsible to and and the rest of like the mechanical 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 be the best co parent I can be and and whatever version that is going to be right now, I support, you know, and I'm going to let her 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 much by her and she's love very much by me. I mean her sisters at home 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 my shirt. Riley will say, you know, dad, this is a fair I want ocean and I'm like, you gotta Let your Dad Have Ocean for it. Yeah, yeah, I'm like. I'm like, Riley, you gotta Let 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 two minutes, five minutes. Let me just have a few minute and but but Riley loves being the big sister. She loves playing with her. And then London, who I really really thought, you know, because teenagers like they you know, want a new baby becomes it's like you deal with kind of the weight of attention, and London did. I did deal with that in the beginning. London really struggle in the early months of like well, it's little baby, it just sleeps and eat.

Should really but now ocean has such a big personality. Now London's like I want to hold her, I want to play with her. So now it's like now it's like they and they came up with the idea to go to Dizzeland. So we want to take ocean to Disneyland. This would be so that's a fun yeah, the fact that you have that understanding says a lot about you and you're not oblivious to having such a huge age difference in yeah, siblings, that you're recognizing that 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 starting out in life. Yeah, and you got to separate and define your attention and 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 my twelve year old has sit downs with me now where she said the other day and then her mother amber, called the amber, because you know, you need to take London to do different things and you take with Riley and I'm like, but but she was like five the other day. How was she twelve? So, yeah, that's that's the hardest part for me. So now, after I had an emotional the time I had the emotional breakdown was when we were in the mall and and she and I brought her girlfriend with her and they went to the mall and or it was a grover was the mall 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 in like thirty minutes and I go what? Like I've had them attached at my hip. 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 it all the time. And I was like, all right, you go to that store and I'm going to watch. And so she goes to stores like six feet away and I call amber. I'm like amber, what is going on? And she's like no, no, this is what you have to let them have their events and I was like, I put the phone down. I was like bawling, like in the mall by myself. So got hard 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 to football practics. I get up, figure it out, get it together. He did. I was like walk off. Yeah, I had a son and it 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 because London 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 to Riley, 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 the clothes furst she needs and then we have like a great two hours that she comes home and she's happy. So I've learned and learning. It took a long 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 people don't realize that about you because they don't know anything about you. But you love kids. Yeah, yeah, you're just a great dad. You're very hands on and you know that's awesome and I hope all that negative shit goes out of the way soon because your kids are getting older and that's that's the only part. Bigger and bigger and more accessible to kids. So I hope that 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 that was 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 changed about 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 younger person. You know, I have a lot of energy, naturally, but I think at fifty I kind of a more tolerant of things. I think that. You know, if you ask me fifteen years ago and this was happening, you know, maybe I would have opened my mouth and not thought first it alliated. Maybe, maybe, probably, I probably would have been like. You know, I probably have...

...been like what will you know? I have something to say right today. I think about ocean, I think about London, I think about Riley. You know, when it comes to speaking publicly, you know, everybody makes mistakes and everybody's nobody's perfect. You know, 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 at the 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 think I'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 and we forget that the little things in life like health and children and your children's health 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, and I mean the pain and the in, the in the sadness that he has to face daily. It puts like when I see him, it puts it in perspective, because I'm like, you know, pray for him, for his for his child, and and so, you know, we're given a blessing and you know, unfortunately, you know, nobody's perfect and I think that 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 we all fuck up and and we all have and and and we all have made mistakes, 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 and all that bullshit that we deal with in this modern day society. It's just people who just go on and type some shit up and it just goes viral and 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 I had a very small taste of it and it was a large enough taste for me that you know, understand that it's a lot like have you've been on that show for how many years you're shore shaws is, Geez, we just a couple days ago it was ten years from the first episode. Are Okay about eleven years? I mean, that's true. I can't imagine the eleven years 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 different right then? Right. So today, very competitive. It's just weird. Right. There's no respect, I think, and that's why I understand, like Denzel Washington always says, I'm not going to get on Instagram, because the more exclusive you are, the more people want you, the more that depend is. But literally it's shifting. It's more available you are, the more but want of you. Look at Kim Kardashian falls like twenty times a day. She was. She what she posts. So she doesn times a day 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 I follow 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 was caught fucking rage a, not necessarily caught, but like you know, old hold produced, crisp produced. Yeah, we know how that happens. Hold on, hold on it, wait, but wait. So, but she post 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 follow him Kardashians, but I follow. I follow Courtney. Oh, she's the only Kardashian I do. That shows you, that shows you how how to touch on her because of who she's seeing now. That's why. No, I think I followed her because I knew Scott, you know, back in the 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 but what 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, which I'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 died and I don't even I don't even watch the Kardashian is like Shit, you don't watch the car I see everybody watches the Kardashians. Everybody watches how did you even know who Scott Desik was if he didn't watch the Kardashians? I went to Tabo with him, law and I did. I went to come with lall and and and Sofia Richie.
