Naomi Odenkirk is a producer and talent manager.
Naomi Yomtov, the woman who would marry Bob in 1997, has worked behind the scenes in Hollywood for quite a while. According to a 2014 profile in Playboy, she represented Jenna Fischer, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Casey Wilson, and Derek Waters (both from Drunk History).
"It was fantastic," Hader told Playboy. "Naomi was jumping up and down, saying, "I think you'll get the show!" That's what I love about her. She's also genuine curiosity and appreciation for funny actors and good material."
Naomi also managed Bob. "It was very tough for a long time," Bob said of Naomi being his manager. "You want your wife or your partner to pay attention to how you feel and not the thing itself."
Naomi told Playboy about her husband's ability to work together. "We had moments where our thoughts would be hurt."
Bob said of Playboy, saying, "I've hurt Naomi's feelings a few times, especially when I don't like something she likes." "But Naomi has improved at her criticism, and I've improved at hearing them. That's true with anyone, whether you're married to them or not."
Naomi anew that she was set to marry Bob right away.
Naomi visited the UnCabaret in West Hollywood in 1994, where she saw Bob talk about his childhood, and telling a funny story about an absent, alcoholic father.
Naomi told Playboy that a week later she was driving around doing errands and thought, 'That's the guy I'm going to marry.' She went home that night and told my roommates, 'I know which guy I'll marry.' I'm embarrassed because I don't know him yet.'
Naomi stayed busy while Bob performed. Eventually, the conversation arose outside a comedy club in Santa Monica. She gave him his. Two months later, they were dating exclusively. In 1997, they married and married.

Bob said of Playboy, "I've hurt Naomi's feelings a few times." "But Naomi has become better at her criticism, and I've become better at hearing them." That's true with anyone, whether you're married to them or not.
Bob is adamant about trusting his wife's sensibility. Vince Gilligan, who is the creator of Breaking Bad, contacted Naomi because he wanted Bob to play lawyer Saul Goodman in the second season of the show. He was hesitant to apply for the role until Naomi pushed him to the position.
Naomi said. "He had to consider himself differently. He didn't write it, he didn't create it. He had to come to terms with a paradigm shift in his career as a director and creator of comedy."
Bob accepted the position, making it one of his life's highlights.
She is also a mother.
Naomi gave birth to her and Bob's two children, both of whom were born in 1998 and 2000.
