It’s hard to imagine how things could turn out well for Robbie and his brother now.
The second one is rumoured to involve Rob, a lady for hire, and some blow (uncorroborated rumour, but sounds plausible no?)
The first video is, of course, the infamous and soon-to-be-released crack video.
Diane Ford, mother to Rob, city councillor Doug and two other siblings appeared on the brothers’ Sunday afternoon radio program on Newstalk 1010. It was probably meant to be a heartwarming Mothers’ Day segment, but then it got awkward.
Rob did some math and realized that with his sister Kathy born in 1960, brother Randy in 1962 and brother “Dougie” in 1964, he broke the pattern.
“So you must’ve had this planned — two, two, two,” said Rob. “Then I don’t know what happened. Five years later you decided to have me in 1969.”
“What was going on there, ma?”
“I guess it was an afterthought,” said mom Diane.
“Wow,” Ford replied.
“You were supposed to be a girl,” said Diane.
“I was supposed to be a girl?” replied Ford, sounding a bit surprised.
“Yeah,” said Diane.
I didn’t think that Diane could top her awkward comments at seeing Rob’s colourful portrait, but she is a Ford, after all.
I’m sure that the Ford brothers can’t be reduced down to just one single childhood influence, but I do think that this kind of information might worm it’s way into the imminent movie of the week.
