The night Paris Hil­ton played match­maker in T.O.

Toronto morn­ing show ra­dio host Roz We­ston met his girl­friend at a party hosted by the so­cialite by Nikki Gill

Thornhill Post - - How They Met -

Roz We­ston, co-host of The Roz & Mocha Show on KiSS 92.5 and se­nior re­porter on En­ter­tain­ment Tonight Canada, is not a fan of crowded night­clubs and nei­ther is his girl­friend, pho­tog­ra­pher Kather­ine Hol­land. How­ever, that is ex­actly the set­ting in which they met a decade ago.

How they met

Roz: Nei­ther of us likes to be out late. We also hate clubs and Paris Hil­ton equally. That said, we met at 2 a.m. at an over­packed night­club party in Toronto hosted by Paris Hil­ton. Two min­utes af­ter we first met, we were hand in hand look­ing for a way out. Which we found. And found each other. There was al­most a foot and a half height dif­fer­ence and a 10-year age dif­fer­ence, but our hands fit per­fectly. I love hold­ing Kather­ine’s hand.

The first date

Roz: Hon­estly? I don’t re­mem­ber where it was. We drank some­where. This was the night af­ter we met and was sim­ply a way to see each other as soon as pos­si­ble. I’m not even sure we fin­ished our sec­ond round be­fore we left to­gether. Kather­ine: Ha! I also barely re­mem­ber our first date, but I’m pretty sure it was over sunny cock­tails at the Drake Ho­tel, and I think I brought a wing­man.

The courtship

Roz and Kather­ine: We each lived in small places, and we both had room­mates, so we spent a ton of time in bed. We ac­tu­ally spent ALL our time in bed. We ate in bed. Talked for hours in bed. Bonded over movies in bed. Napped in bed. Drank in bed. Laughed in bed. It was very hip­pie and very in­ti­mate.

Their daugh­ter

Roz: Her name is Roxy Alabama We­ston, and she’s just the great­est. She’s five and she’s funny and kind. Kather­ine: She fills our life with this mag­i­cal en­ergy. It’s hard to ex­press what a priv­i­lege it is to see some­one learn ev­ery­thing about the world for the first time. It makes you feel five years old again, and some­times that is ex­actly what you need. It’s very hard to see your own child ob­jec­tively, but she has a real fire in her belly, and it’s con­ta­gious.

Their lives now

Kather­ine: When we first met, we BBM’d like crazy dur­ing the day and were happy just to watch hockey and eat in bed ev­ery day af­ter work. And hon­estly, very lit­tle has changed since then ex­cept that now we have a lovely five-year-old girl who drags us to the park for swing rides, and I traded in hockey for HBO. I am very spoiled in that Roz is an ab­so­lutely ex­cel­lent cook, so it’s dif­fi­cult to find the mo­ti­va­tion to go out to restau­rants to­gether.

Se­cret for suc­cess

Kather­ine: We both love re­ally hard and do our best to never take ad­van­tage of that qual­ity in the other. You never fall in love with one per­son, re­ally. You fall in love with ev­ery­thing that per­son was and ev­ery­thing that per­son is go­ing to be. You have to give each other enough room to fig­ure that out and not too much room, so that they al­ways have that core, that sup­port, the feel­ing that they are truly loved, and ac­cepted.

Re­la­tion­ship ad­vice

Roz and Kather­ine: Save your best for each other, don’t waste it on peo­ple who don’t mat­ter. You can never say, “Wel­come home,” “I love you” and “Damn you’re sexy” too many times. Eat to­gether, fall asleep to­gether and al­ways keep the bath­room door closed.
