Does Rob Lowe Even Care About His Kids?


I've decided Rob Lowe is full of crap. That is tough for me because generally I find that any client of Gloria Allred is full of crap, so I had to choose between two piles of it, and I think Rob's is worse.

Fox News obtained some of the documents filed by Rob's attorney and the allegations are pretty powerful. According to them, his nanny used the N word on a frequent basis and would often work with the kids while popping Xanax and drinking booze. OK, lets stop right there. A show of hands of who would let anyone work with their kids who did any of the three previous things while on duty. Yeah, that's what I thought. Rob and his wife didn't do a damn thing. They just let it go on and did not take any action against the nanny. So, either Rob is full of crap and this didn't happen, or he is quite possibly the worst parent ever. To knowingly let your kid be taken care of by someone who pops Xanax and drinks booze while watching your kids is close to abuse. Another theory is that he didn't mind them doing it because he was doing other things with them or wanted to. Can you think of any explanation that is plausible as to why you would let your kids be exposed to that?

He also says in the documents that she was always comparing household objects to the size of her boyfriend's peen and that she loved terrifying the kids about what a terrible neighborhood they lived in and what they could expect if they met anyone from a gang. Again. If this person is in your house, are they even going to make it through the day? No, so this is all just beyond crazy at this point.

Oh, and get this. Rob says that since the second nanny sued him he has been passed over for three commercials which could have made him a million dollars. Yes, well, what he probably didn't say is that they wanted someone younger, or blonde, or who doesn't come across as an ass every time he is on screen.

Ugh. Whatever the true story, those kids are in a bad situation. When are we going to start putting birth control in the water and make you prove you will be a fit parent before you can reproduce? :)

popping xanax and drinking is close to abuse? man, i have to rethink my whole parenting strategy.

So they all had dinner together and drank a glass of wine. Then the nanny got the kids ready for bed.

The kids were listening to rap music and the nanny tried to get them to listen to Miley instead.

It's all in the spin, and it's all spin.

Everyone in that 'brat pack' always struck me as douchey. None had the talent of the original 'rat pack' but all the brats were over willing to take to the comparison.

i still go back tot he fact that if it was soo horrible working for the Lowes, then why did she go back to them after leaving?

neither is clean in this case but one has millions and the other does not....

Damned Fallacy said...

The motion says that the Lowes "are now aware" of the Xanax and alcohol usage, and then cite to "Declarations" of various witnesses. I could be wrong, but their counsel seems to be framing it as they discovered this stuff afterward through investigation, not that they knew while it was going on.

Another Santa Barbara resident deeply disliked by the rest of the population. Rob Lowe has quite a history of being disruptive and inconsiderate and then expecting special privileges and consideration based on his celebrity. We locals are sick to death of Rob and his problems and don't want to hear about the most recent unsavory situation. This one is particularly odious as his children are involved. Our collective fantasy is that he and Oprah move far, far away and never return, even to visit.

Sorry, but I have to side with the nanny. It would be pretty easy to install a nanny-cam and get whatever evidence you need on video. Regular folks do it. Because they want to know what's happening when they're not there.

Anyways, I am pretty sure I know what went down: The nanny was probably not great, but she spoke English, showed up, the kids seemed to like her and Rob wanted to bang her. Or maybe the wife did. Either there was hanky panky or there was not; whatever the case may be, it led to bad feelings.

Why doesn't his wife have an upper lip?

Yo Resse- have them take Steven Segal and John Corbett with them!

The only one who can stay is Robert Cray!

Rob Lowe is a jerk, amoung the things he has done to irk his neighbors and iritate Santa Barbarians is being Wendy McCaws blabbing boy- but the BEST is when he moved into Carp Beach area and while there is a long standing rule that no one puts up fences or trees or anything to mar the view FOR ALL FOLKS, the first thing he and Sheryl do it put up fences and trees.....and after being nicely asked to remove them, he installed MORE.

Dickhead extrordinaire- at least his friendship with Arnold kept our VAlley free of the governators helicopters- though I am not sure Carp wants them....good luck with that!

Now I'm not going to read the documents (because it sounds long and I'm not that motivated), but if someone is popping Xanax non-recreationally, it doesn't make them a bad person or someone who shouldn't be involved in parenting. Xanax is most often used for Panic Attacks and usually resolve quickly (and are not usually triggered by things -- so it doesn't mean your nanny would "freak out" in an emergency).

I'm not too surprised about all of this. Remember when he filmed himself having sex with the underage teen? Right after that, he got married and tried to quiet down.

Trouble follows trouble-makers. Look at OJ.

captivagrl said...

remember the interview he did with oprah before The Lyon's Den?
fake
fake
fake fake
she gushed over him and his house. she also made a huge deal about the show. i was thinking, what the hell?

disappointed to hear this, but i am with dn on the xanax. i take it for anxiety attacks, and while they are infrequent now, they can be much more debilitating than the xanax.
i'm also known to get my drink on from time to time.

and john corbett is an jerk, too??
damn.

bionic bunny! said...

A jerk.
see? i need a drink!

Katja said...

bb- good one!

Reese, Oprah is never there. What has she done to irk the neighbors?
