Now when it comes to Jenay, I can't even begin to describe the level of indecision this lady had. I mean, I actually had to design a set of tests for her to choose a godparent! Not something any of my clients have asked for in the past. With that level of indecision you can imagine how hard it was for her to pick out a dress in my store. It didn’t help that I was pregnant and my patience was short! Thank goodness for mocktails and jelly beans (something we never have a shortage of at my stores)!
Rosie, you are wonderful and I loved last season but your producers are steering you wrong this season. Tonight's godmother competition was trashy and worse, nasty. It brought out the worst in everyone involved. The episode with the out of control 6 year old seemed staged and better suited for Nanny 911 or some such program. Your best episodes have focused on nesting and fears of expecting parents. That's when your viewers can relate, even if they don't have children yet. Another distraction is the fact that you seem to be working less and less frequently with high end NYC clients which had been a focal point for your show. Seeing you in some unnamed suburb each episode dilutes the show's brand. You are extremely knowledgable, have a sharp sense of humor and are absolutely charming. I would really love to see your show thrive, please get back to what you did best in season 1!
I could not believe the couple could not handle the robot baby for one day. My daughter is 18 and had to have her electronic baby for 3 full days. she actually received an A for her care. I can't believe how clueless people can be.
Rosie, I so love your sincere desire to help new parents. It's beautiful to behold.
However, please do pursue the speech therapy. That effort is bound to pay off for you and help you personally as well as in your career.
For instance, you spoke the term "Tummy time" (1.) as if you expected people to understand what you were saying, yet that was impossible because you speak too rapidly and unclearly, and (2.) as if you expected any human adult to be familiar with the term. You didn't bother to explain that you were using jargon. Why didn't you describe what you meant instead of letting the new father-to-be struggle? He may have heard something different from what you had intended to speak. Anyone would feel nervous in those circumstances, especially a person being filmed for your TV show?
I also do not believe in 15-second cures for such an important problem as issues of mistrust and miscommunication between a couple. I hope you assisted them to find continuing help for their relationship.
Instead of encouraging even more competition for the "candidates" to become Godmother for the new baby for the other couple, you could have suggested that they choose two Godmothers. I had two Godmothers years ago, and it worked out great.
I love your show...where do you get some of these nutty people??? Who has a baby holding on to a tree??? I bet if he had to try, he'd scream for the juice. Tell him to pass a watermelon while stretching his lower lip up over his head until it touches his back...that's how it feels.
I love your show, I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining it is and I especially like your accent, even though I generally don't like british accents, works on you :)
Rosie, I find you delightful. I am not even a mother and I tune it to watch how the parents to be learn what you have to teach them.
On a more personal note, if you find that speech therapy is a must for you to enhance your career - more power to you... BUT, I find your manner of speaking, and your distinct accent and inflections to be very charming and make you unique and down to earth. Personally I wouldn't change a thing about your voice/speech.
Viewer213, why do you think you speak for all viewers? I enjoyed the godmother competition, I found it entertaining
Rosie, I love your show. Please don't go too far with your speech Therapy, it is a very cute part of your personality. As for the father confused about tummy time, I think he was somehow relating it to being in mom's tummy. Not actually thinking about the baby laying on it's tummy.
You are my new favorite female on television! And, for the record, I understand every word you say no matter what others say. I love that you are smart, good looking, with great common sense and great fashion sense. You are the whole package of a modern working mother who doesn't seem as phony as many on Bravo's reality shows. I am stunned at the self indulgent women you have to work with ...but your ability to figure out how to show them a light at the end of the tunnel works for me. I suspect some aspect of this show is scripted and managed...but its fresh, you are dealing with babies and it is a shock to learn that so many new mothers to be are so clueless, but it keeps me watching. Good luck and congrats on your second baby!
I adore you and your accent but I detest the comment or answer you gave on Andy's show in regards to celeb baby names you don't like. While you are allowed your personal opinion as a person you also need to be careful as a celeb. I think Blue Ivy is a beautiful name because the name is significant to the parents. I find you so tactful but here I don't. Stay classy! Be tactful! xxoo, Liz
