Rodger talks award season, celebrity clients, and parenthood!

on Aug 10, 2010

It’s that time of year again…Golden Globes. This is the time of year that I try and stay away from Rachel as she becomes a crazed fashion lunatic in search of the perfect dress. If I had a dollar for every time the word dress was said in tonight’s episode I swear I’d retire! The good news is that awards season gives me an opportunity to hang out with my friends and be a “normal” (whatever that is) person. You got to see how I like spend my Sundays during football season – with a Bloody Mary in my hand and the game on hanging with my boys…perfection! It’s pointless to even try and talk to Rachel anyway as she’s glued to her Blackberry and will stop mid-sentence (even if she’s speaking) to put out one fire or another.

This year was especially tense as were short staffed and kept getting more clients confirming that they would be participating in the Globe’s festivities. Brad really had to step up and we hired Ashley to help us out for awards season. I think you’ll agree that they both did an amazing job and our clients looked amazing. Love that you got to see Molly on the show. She is so incredible and beautiful inside and out ... and that accent kills me!

For whatever reason this year I started thinking that I can’t believe we are doing this again…another cycle of the same thing and I started feeling like something was missing. As much as I love fashion and I’m proud of what we do, I just can’t get it out of my mind that there’s got to be more to life than this. That’s when it hit me…I think I may be catching the baby bug! It sort of solidified while I was holding my friend Brett’s newborn Ethan. He is so cute and innocent and completely dependent on his parents and it’s up to them to care for him, “show him the ropes” and watch him learn and grow with their guidance. Such a beautiful thing if you think about it.

Rachel isn’t getting any younger and I’m starting to feel like if we don’t get on it we’ll miss the opportunity which would be a complete shame as I know that Rachel would make an amazing mother. She’s incredible with children and loves them so much. I really feel like it will enable her to find balance in her life and I just think it may be the right time. Not sure how it can happen with all that’s going on. Dilemma.
