Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That! Robin Thicke Dishes On Why He Really Left ‘Real Husbands Of Hollywood’

May 3, 2013  |  

When it was first announced that Robin Thicke wouldn’t be returning to BET’s hit comedy series Real Husbands of Hollywood, all kinds of rumors began to circulate. Some said that Robin pulled a no-show when it was time to begin filming. Others said that Robin and Kevin exchanged words, resulting in Robin storming off of the set and never looking back. Kevin Hart squashed rumors of alleged beef between he and Robin in an interview last month and now Robin is doing the same. The “Blurred Lines” singer paid a visit to Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club and chatted it up with the gang about a host of topics including the real reason he left the show, what it means to be a Black woman and constantly being compared to Justin Timberlake. Peep what he had to say below.

On why he be won’t returning to Real Husbands of Hollywood next season:

“The thing was, I was gonna do the new season and then this song started taking off. I didn’t have the time to do the new season. I had to get this album. It was fun just to do it like once. Then you start to repeat story lines, repeating jokes.”

On if he ever finds Kevin Hart’s jokes about Paula Patton upsetting:

“No. You know, that’s comedy. Kevin [Hart] and I actually met at Chris Paul’s wedding only about a year ago. When we met, I started doing my impersonation of Kevin for Kevin. I know his whole standup. We hit it off right away. We went to dinner and we laughed for hours like we were best friends from high school. That’s why the show was fun and so easy to do. Him and I have similar tastes in comedy”

On being compared to Justin Timberlake:

“He always made R&B pop music. The great thing about it, there’s plenty room of everybody when you’re making good music….We’re both white. We have some of the same inspiration. We both have actresses for wives.”

On using arguments he has with Paula in his music: 

“One time she told me ‘You don’t know what it’s like to be Black and you don’t know what it’s like to be a woman.’ I was like, ‘I don’t know how to argue with that.’ So I wrote a song ‘I Don’t Know How it Feels to be You’ because I don’t know. As much as I try to understand and as much as I try to put myself in your shoes, I’ll never know what it’s like to be Black in America and I’ll never know what it’s like to be a woman.”
