Rodger talks Team Zoe's "growing pains" and his new buisness title!

on Oct 13, 20090

 

I hope you all enjoyed the season finale of RZP Season 2. As you can see, the team is experiencing some "growing pains" as Rachel has so much on her plate and everyone (especially Taylor) is trying to figure out how they fit going forward.

I’ve watched from the sidelines for a long time and have obviously been involved with Rachel’s business but never in a formalized way. Basically, it’s gotten to a point where the opportunity and need for resources is really huge so Rachel and I decided that it’s time for me to play a more active role in the business. Luckily, my business partner (in my other business) Neil is an amazing confidant and friend and will be taking up the slack as I focus more of my attention on Rachel Zoe, Inc. The organization needs structure, strategies and a look towards the future and I’m really up for the challenge. Rachel has a wonderful team of agents, publicists and lawyers in place and I hope I can bring value to that team as well.

I truely loved your show Zoe. I'm sorry to see and hear that you got sick. I see you, and you just amaze me with your drive, for your company. I was happy to hear that your husband stepped in. I really enjoyed your show, loooooved it so much. During that time frame I decided in my personal life. To stop working because I seem to marry my job. Being a multi task person. But I had to stop myself and get a grip of myself and take it easy. Now I'm back to work and have learn to take it a little slower, but still get things done, steady but quick. Basically pace myself. I love working and I knew for myself I work easier on a very stressful time frame. Thats just me... and learn to just deal with it without overly stressing. So many times when I would watch your show, it gave me back my drive back. LOL So thank you.... I hope to see you back for a new season. You need anything just email me. Sincerly,

Lucinda

I love this show and I love Rachel Zoe!!It's is so fascinating to see the inside working life to a stylist and all of the ahhmarzing shows and people Rachael and her team associate with on a professional and so personal level. I also love the fact that Rachel is able to have a bloody good laugh at everything and especially herself. It's so refreshing to see such a successfull woman and celebrity have great sense of humour adn not take it all so seriously. I especially love to watch Rachael and Rogers beautiful relatonship...Please come back for season 3.

I would hope Roger you would give Taylor more. Her being left behind and making her make a decision that should have been made by the "Boss" was more than a remarkable and invaild move I have ever seen. Your wife's illnes is not a factor in poor business moves. I know how it can take a toll but an inablity to make sound business choices is not involued with this illnes as I have watched time after time Taylor tried to tell how stressed she is. Adding the promise that was made to Taylor about going to Paris it would have caused me to leave and I can see her true devotion to the RZP by her "sucking it in and doing what needed to be done". Such a valuable empoyee should not be put into the position Taylor has be put into...hopeing more sucess and better management for you....

I have watched the show from the beginning and love it. I think its great that Rodger is going to step in and handle the business. I think he had great ideas getting a Web Tech involved to get Rachel's website going. My daughter also had been diagnosed with vertigo about 8 years ago. She has not had any symptoms for some time since she has changed her eating habits, gotten on a good diet and herbal tea's (green and white tea) and has a better sleep schedule. It wasn't easy, she was a junk food queen and always put too much on her plate. I am sure Rachel will be feeling more herself when she is able to pace herself and build up her immune system. But for now Rodger your a "Rock Star"

Hey Rodger! I certainly wish you the best of luck in this new role. Although we only see a glimpse of what makes you and Rachel such an amazing couple, I hope this helps to only strenghthen your relationship! I hope to see Season 3! All the very best - a fan in Phoenix!

It seems as though you could have stepped in sooner. You seem more focused than Rachel and will be less affected by the drama of her staff. You'll keep them all on track. It's a great move for Rachel to get your involvement.

Hi Roger. I think you stepping in will really advance the Rachel Zoe name! Your calm and business savvy are always a great balance to the group. I wanted to comment how much I really love the show and how I appreciate your input on the recession and how you two showed your work with charities. It's so important for me that fashion has heart and is grounded w/ what's going on with the world.

Thanks for a great session to you and your wife. Looking forward to season 3.

I am glad to see that you will be taking the helm of Rachel Zoe Inc. You will definitely bring a business sense that Taylor and Brad are not use to. All I can say is good luck, this will definitely separate "the men from the boys".

i admire you and Rachel for the fact that you have such a strong front as a married couple. It's nice to see people in the "spotlight" show such a bond and love for eachother like you and Rachel seem to have. Keep up the good work!!

Rodger,

I was diagnosed with Vertigo over ten years ago. I have been extremely successful in overcoming the disorder by changing my lifestyle. I was drinking too much coffee, not eating and running myself into the ground. I had to make a change. I started to eat mini-meals, drink less caffiene and started a exercise program. The exercise helped tremendously with the poor balance and dizziness. I also had to rewire my mind to give up control in certain areas of my life and job. Rodger, your support will be a tremendous help in Rachel's recovery. I wish you all well and I look forward season 3.

Hopefully, this is helpful advice from a New Orleans Gal.

Hey Rodger!! How awesome you are able to step in and help Rachel w/ her biz. It is amazingly apparent she needs the help becuz of her great success and all her projects. She rocks!!! Never let her forget that. I love the show and always want more, but like so many other 'reality shows' that end the people's lives in disaster - pull the plug before it ever gets close to there. You and Rachel really seem to have a great connection, respect and true love for each other. Dont let anything get in the way of that!! C.

Rodger,

I also had to "step in" to help my husband with his business. I am very glad I was able to do it. Rachel needs your help and support, and at the end of the day, you are the one who will always cover her back. When the going gets tough, employees, agents, attorneys look out for themselves and their fees. Your involvement in the business will help protect Rachel and what she has worked so hard to accomplish. Word of advice-date nights, and a good sense of humor. Best of luck to both of you. Can't wait for season 3.

I am a big fan of the show. So glad to see Rodger helping with the business. I have a suggestion for Rachel's vertigo I have it extremely bad and I went to the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland OH and they sent me to a physical therorpist who showed my husband how to give me a treatment at home whenever I feel it coming on. Something to thinl about. Hope Rachel gets better

Me too, I am glad that he has finally stepped in to take charge of this, it was needed. I am happy for Taylor, now maybe she can find some happiness n her new job title.And now maybe Rachel can get better, now that she wont have much stress. Kudos for Rachel for letting her handsome husband take some of the slack...

love the show.... gina for Campbell,TX

Rodger, I think your a terrific husband and I also think you will make a great boss to Taylor and Brad. Love Rachel and hope she feels better soon and that the show comes back another season. It must be also hard and stressful for Rachel to have cameras following her around whenever drama stirs up. Tell her that I admire her eye for fashion and I used to wear those "Platform" shoes when I was 17years old and I am now 53years young...I'd break my ankles if I tried to wear them now LOL...Best of luck with everything.

Boy am I glad Rodger is stepping in. I would hate to see Rachel loose her footing because she's unable to juggle so much. I'm really glad she realized she can't do this alone and she's getting ready to explode career wise. I really see her Business going "Ba-na-naaaaas"!
