PARENTAL ADVISORY WITH LUKE CAMPBELL
On his relationship with his kids,Lacresha,17,and Luther Jr,15 :
As far as my kids are concerned, I’m one of those fathers that want to have a relationship with them but is denied by their mother. I’m one of those guys that you don’t hear about, you always hear about deadbeat dads, but you never hear any dialogue about the dad who fights to see their kids but is deprived by the woman. When I’m with the kids, I’m always teaching them responsibility and accountability. I’ve always said that when my kids want to go beyond Playstation games and want to talk about girls that they will have an open dialogue with me. The great thing about the show is that it has allowed me to spend more time with my kids than I ever had and raise them on TV and give them some of the values that my mother and father gave me.
On keeping his kids away from adult-themed content given that he is in the industry:
I don’t find it hard because I don’t bring it to my house. What I do in the office is done in the office. I’m just like the parent who goes to work on the back on the garbage truck or the parent that is a football player. When I come home, I’m dad, I’m Luther Campbell, I don’t bring Luke there. When people watch this show, they’ll see that my life is no different from theirs.
On how he met his wife,lawyer Kristin Thomson:
I met her in a restaurant on South Beach where she was with some friends. I didn’t know if she was with a man and I didn’t want to be disrespectful so I asked a bus boy if he could take my number and tell her if she didn’t have a man to give me a call and if she did it was alright. So he gave it to her. She took about a couple weeks to call, and from that point we were on again, off again; she was giving me the run-down. Eventually we hooked up and fell in love, it was a match made in heaven.
