Well, that's definitely how Robby is, but he's no millionaire, nor was he single for 11 years. He had a teenage wife he'd imported from the Ukraine in tow when he sublet the second bedroom in my (not slummy) LA apartment in 2006. Not sure where the dump on the show came from, but he was definitely a slum type considering I practically had to take him to court to get my $500 security deposit back when he took over the full lease.
Oh, and he was godawful to that poor little girl-wife of his. He tried to get "strong" with me too, but I called the cops.
