House Star Omar Epps Talks About TV Doctors and Fatherhood

In his roles as TV doc, Omar Epps has learned plenty about hospitals, bedside manners, and staying well.


Who wakes up with the kids at night?

It’s tough. When I work, my wife sleeps in the one year old’s room. My hours are too crazy and I can’t deal with midnight wake ups, so we make do.

Who makes the doctor’s appointments in your household?

My wife pretty much keeps that in order.

How do you eat healthy when you are on the set and filming all day and presumably bombarded by trays filled with fattening foods?

I like to bring food from home. I am not a health nut per se, but I believe that you are what you eat. I eat a lot of greens, salads, and fruits. I also eat a decent amount of raw food because it just tastes better to me. Every now and then I will get a Fatburger. You have to have balance.

Any other guilty pleasure foods?

Potato chips. I could eat a whole jumbo bag of barbecue Lays if I don't stop myself.

How do you stay in shape when taping?

I do exercise, but not as often as I like because of the hours I work. I love to box or hit the gym and do a general workout. I don’t like basketball because it is too hard on the knees.

How do you unwind when you’re not working?

I like to catch a movie with the wife or take the kids out. I like to box and shoot so I go to the gun range. To shoot well, you have to be relaxed. Some of my more relaxing moments have been at the gun range. I also like to get a massage here and there or chill out on the beach.

How do you balance your busy work and home life?

I feel blessed to do what I love and be able to make a living and take care of my family. It has been a great ride so far, so it’s kind of easy to find a balance.

If you had to lose one sense -- taste, sound smell, feel, and hearing -- which would you choose?
