Rehab Addict star Bobby Prothero met beautiful and then much young Karin Prothero before 1997. More than 25 years later and he still believes she is the love of his life.
Going back into memory lane, Bobby often gets overwhelmed and writes on his social media things like — he can not believe how Karin has kept him around this long.
Through this very aged companionship, both of them have been grateful for each other, for their kids, and for their whole family.
