    Essay: Comedian Theo Von meets MTV’s Rob Dyrdek and it’s intense

    I haven’t watched Rob Dyrdek on TV in years. My time for tele-viewing consists solely of NFL football, Dexter, and Criminal Minds DVR’d. (If I could have Shamar Moore and Lt.

Cuz you know, Mila and I go to the same Starbucks. I looked up from writing a script/facebooking/waiting-for-my-big-break, to see this petite, semi-Middle Eastern, maybe-Latin, quasi-Hawaiian, possibly-Russian Hebrew girl, standing around with an even-smaller-than-her adult gentleman. I didn’t think anything of it, because
