Allison’s best friend, Swansai, is responsible for nominating Rob to appear on the Netflix reboot, in hopes the Fab Five can help him be the best dad he can possibly be.
“I try to be Rob’s reminder of all the things Allison would want,” Swansai explained. “She tasked me with making sure that he moved out of their house by the time David started kindergarten… That house is so gorgeous. He needs help. We can not let him mess this up.”
Rob, as expected, is struggling to cope with his wife’s death while simultaneously plan a housewarming party with his family and friends. That’s where the Fab Five come in, to help Rob “let the sun shine in.”
“Allison dying has left such a monstrous hole in all of our lives, and the only thing we can do, and what she wanted us to do, is move on,” Rob added.
How are Rob and his boys doing today?
With the help of Tan France, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, and Bobby Berk, Rob got a complete makeover (and styling tips for his sons), a fully decorated home, and more importantly, the confidence he needed to approach life without his wife.
So, is he still following the Fab Five’s advice? According to Refinery29, Rob is working as a bartender and “enjoying my new house and new life.”
