Romber’s family annoyed with CBS.
Families of Rob and Amber “are mad at CBS for taking over all the arrangements” of their recent wedding, Elisa Lipsky-Karasz reports. Rob’s brother said, “It’s really hard on the family. [CBS] is in charge of everything. They make all the decisions.” They also, like, paid for everything, and his brother and now sister-in-law sold the rights to this intimate occasion to the network, so it sounds like Rob’s bro is pissed at the wrong people. Elisa also reports that, as a wedding present, the couple will receive a house from Rob’s father. But she says Rob “actually purchased the house from his father, and that CBS helped with cost.”
