Jeremy Dash: “It’s Hard for Me to Talk About My Brother Damon Without Getting Upset Because He’s Such a Douche Bag.”

"Little by little, there were glimmers of the old douche-baggery, he was fully reverting back to his old self."

Jeremy Dash’s relationship with his brother Damon vacillated between extremes on the premiere season of Family Therapy but where do they stand today.

In an interview with VH1, Jeremy discusses getting to the best place they’ve ever been and then going back to not speaking, as well as the drama that followed his nieces and ex-sister-in-law Rachel Roy after Beyonc√©’s Lemonade was released.

What did it take to convince all three of you to sign up for Family Therapy?
Jeremy Dash: I got a call from a producer or somebody, saying that Damon had already agreed to do the show and that Bobby had already agreed to do the show and then when I was approached, I was very against it. In my mind, at the beginning, my mindset was, why do I need to go on national television to hash out an issue with my brother when we should be able to do that on our own. It’s not for everyone to judge, and so I was hesitant to go for a while but I’m glad that I did.

Was there a conversation between you guys before you signed up?
I didn’t speak with Damon about it because I didn’t f–k with him for almost a year prior to meeting each other in LA that first day.

So, he told the producers he would do the show and it was their job to convince you and Bobby?
If I know how my brother’s mind works, I’m pretty sure he went into this thinking that it would be a good commercial for him to promote his brand because, he don’t give a s–t. I know him very well, he looked at it, I’m sure, as an opportunity to promote his brand, promote himself. But me and Bobby, we talked about it quite a bit and said, “Why not take this opportunity to hash this out?”

When I thought about it I said, “This is the perfect opportunity for me to expose Damon for the douche bag he really is. He has a reputation for being a bully, and being disrespectful and he’s obviously narcissistic sociopath but nobody’s really pulled his card in a public forum, the way I had the opportunity to do. No one stood up to him, the way I had the opportunity to do in front of America, and good because he needed that. The response that I get from the viewers and the fans is very positive and supportive and that alone is worth it for me. Just having people come up to me and saying, “Hey, Jeremy, I just want to commend you for putting up with your brother’s bulls–t,” that alone made it worth it for me.
