Fashion Rocks's Assistant Editor dishes on all the baby mama drama from Episode 5.

From skulls and swords to fierce walks and fashions, this week's episode really had something for everyone. Oh and there were pregnancy suspenders. Now do people just send all of their random maternity clothing creations to Rosie in the hopes of having them take off? Because if so I can only imagine what comes through the doors of Rosie Pope Maternity. It seems this plan backfired for the pregnancy suspender people. Hopefully they have another more fashionable gem in their back pocket somewhere. 

But I digress. Rosie's client Melissa had a lot of help. So much help that I couldn't actually be sure of what each member of the staff's specific role was. Like Rosie, I too was confused as to what our favorite pregnancy concierge was supposed to be doing. Evidently Rosie was called in to throw a fabulous fashion show baby shower, which I'm guessing was music to LT's ears. 

Perhaps the best moment of the episode was Rosie, Melissa, and LT screening pregnant models to walk in the show. These three were not kidding around. And neither were some of those model mamas. They were bringing it for two! Of course LT had to show all the ladies how it was done and gave a little runway. But when he was explaining the importance of "serving" and "gagging," it honestly sounded more like he was talking about working in a restaurant. A very fierce restaurant full of sassy wait staff.

Once we got to the fashion show, Rosie had a little freak out when things weren't up to snuff. Rosie's naturally sunny disposition didn't exactly jive with her laying down the law, so somehow she managed to be cute all the while (which probably wasn't what she was going for). In the end it all came together, even though Melissa wore a non-Rosie Pope dress much to Rosie's displeasure. 

Then we have our rock 'n' rollers and their apartment full of weapons. Seriously though, it was kind of like Medieval Times in there. I was a little nervous for Rosie that she might end up hurting herself packing up all those knives. And besides all the skulls and expletive-laden guitars, what really gave me the most anxiety me was the CD shelf. That thing looked like a strong breeze could have knocked it over at any moment. Luckily the removed all the CDs before they could fall upon Rosie bringing the episode to a tragic. 

And then Rosie delivered the perfect heavy metal nursery. It had everything: secure bookshelves, a guitar mobile, murals of bunny's playing electric guitars. Rock on, Rosie Pope!

Next week Rosie gets the most bizarre request thus far -- A client who wants a nude portrait of herself on a horse. Intrigued yet?

The Privilege of Parenting

Rosie wanted to deal with her own issues so she could be the best parent possible.

People often ask me why I do what I do. I think it is so important for people to understand the passion I have for helping people be the best parents they can be and to get educated about the process. Parenting is truly a privilege. This episode I decided to open up a little about my past to help you understand a little more about where this passion comes from. You were all so supportive when I was honest about my struggles with fertility, so I wanted to be honest with you about my relationship with my own mom as well. The thing is, as parents we help to shape our children. Of course, there are many other things that go into who they become, but parents have a lot to do with it. This honor should be taken so seriously, and I think it’s at the core of what I do.

Honestly at the beginning of the season I had no idea things would take such a personal direction. But finding out I was having a girl and coming to terms with my speech issues brought to the forefront so many issues from my past that I think I had chosen to lock away. I'm good at locking things away in tiny boxes in my head! It’s a survival technique...probably not a good one, but hey, I am a work in progress! Pregnancy is really a time to come to terms with the parts of you that you don't like, because as a parent, we have to love who we are. We have to be proud of ourselves so we can be role models to our children. If there is any self-hate in there, it will get brought out the moment you look into your child's eyes, because you'll want to hide those sides of you and doing that in my opinion always leads to disaster. Children know when you are not being honest with them about whom and what you are.

So I decided to take a long, hard look at who I am, why I do what I do, and to try and get to a better place with what I think about myself so I can be the best role model possible for my children. I hope in some way that understanding better who I am will help all of you in your own lives get to a place of love for yourself. Whether you are becoming a parent, already are a parent, or not one yet a parent, you deserve it! Life is just too short to live so full of pain. If I can do it, so can you.
