Bye Bye Baby
Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor dishes on all the baby mama drama from Episode 8.
After a season full of babies and divas, I think we've all grown up a little under Rosie's sage mommy wisdom. We've also learned a lot about serving fierce style and attitude thanks to stylist/assistant/model/performer, LT. And Hannah has taught us the art of how to deliver news of a ridiculous request to someone with a straight face. Which is no small feat when you have to tell your boss to meet with someone who wants a pregnant naked portrait on a horse.
I loved how Hannah and LT reacted to Rosie's happy pregnancy news, because it was so typical of their personalities. Hannah was beaming in happy silence while LT let out sounds akin to Mariah Carey's birdsong or some sort of small rainforest monkey. I hope The Kiki Twins will be performing at Rosie's baby shower.
How cute was soon to be stay at home dad, Matt? You could really tell he was trying his hardest but was kind of just adorably flustered. It's like when your dad has to go foodshopping. He gets entirely overwhelmed at the supermarket, buys five boxes of poptarts and a bag of pistachoes, and then completely forgets to purchase any necessities. At least that's how it was at my house.
Was anyone else concerned that Matt was not going to give up his boot camp baby? It was adorable how attached he became, but I think Rosie may have been gearing up to pry that baby out of his hands with a crowbar. Perhaps Rosie did her job too well.
And then there was Michelle's nanny search. I thought the nanny speed dating idea was brilliant. However, I think they definitely should have made it more Bachelor-esque by adding a rose ceremony to the process. But maybe instead of roses, it could have been blinged out pacifiers or a diaper full on confetti.
Some things I learned were real even though they sounded fake:
1. Being able to understand baby talk is an actual skill.
2. Baby sign language exists and can be interpreted.
Who knew? Well our maternity concierge, that's who. In the end I think Michelle made the right choice after the three rounds of competitions. I got good vibes from that nanny.
And of course the send off for the finale was Rosie and LT dancing. Looks like she still has a long way to go before she masters those high kicks.
