Rodger talks award season, celebrity clients, and parenthood!

on Aug 10, 20100

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.

Rodger, I absolutely love you and Rachel together! Over a year ago, my husband and I were in the same dilemma; married 10 years, both had high flying careers, and not sure how a baby would fit into our lifestyle. But, one day I woke up with the baby bug! My husband was on the fence, but he told me he'd never take being a mother away from me, so we started a family. Suffice to say, having a child IS the most wonderful thing in the world! Yeah yeah, I know it sounds so cliche, but it's true. Now my husband is a stay at home dad and loves it. He sold his porsche for a Jeep Wrangler and has dreams of all of the adventures he and his son will do together - and us as a family.

The most imporant thing Rachel needs to understand is that she's successful and established, her career will always be there, she can do it all!!!!!

I hope and pray that you and your wife are able to find balance and compromise. I hope Rachel sees that the awards shows will always be there, but having a child wont. Maybe she doesn't want children. Maybe she is afraid. I do believe you would have a beautiful child together. The opportunities in the fashion world are endless for Rachel, motherhood could be as well. She would be the most stylish mother in the industry! Motherhood + Rachel = BANANAS!

I love this show and was so happy to see the new season air. I have to say, it seems to me that this year, you, Roger, have lost your patience with Rachael. I sense a tension there between you two that I didn't sense previously. I hope everything works out and Rachael realizes that she needs to seek more balance between work and her personal life because I think you guys are "bananas" together. I'll keep watching to see how things go!

Rodger your a good man and you and Rachel are great together, but definitely what happens, happens for a reason...so it is GOOD that Taylor is OUT, = you are hands on in there on what is going on and you need to pull the wifey towards having more time w/fam and friends and definitely working ON getting that family started! - Time is ticking and ..she woudn't want to have someone else's eggs inside her cause her's were a tad fragile, to be put it delicately....Good luck and many more blessings to you and the mrs!

~I love Roger!!! He seems to be such a patient and balanced man. Rachel you as well are amazing, but if I can give you a word of advice from someone looking from the outside. Please, please I beg that you stop and really truly see what's in front of you. You are so blessed in every way. I just wish you would make time to be more balanced. He is ready for a child, LISEN to him. At the end of the day that's what you are left with FAMILY.Friends, Fashion, Money,Cars, Houses, Status,Fame....comes and goes. However when you have balanced and know how to give something up in order to have something greater (a baby, a happy marriage) then when the curtens come down at the end of it.....YOU will be just FINE b/c you knew how to keep it in BALANCED. If not, you may WAKE-UP one day, alone, empty, and lost. I enjoy your show and I wish BOTH the best!!!!! May God continue to bless your lives and thank-you for allowing us into a little piece of your lives :) good luck this year~

Thank God you are married to Rachael. The reason you feel the way you do...it's the truth. There IS more to life than fashion and I love how you get it. Keep pushing that adorable girl to get real and start a family. That's what life is all about b cuz , when it's all said and done, it's your family, children, babies, parents, grandparents, siblings etc. that really matter. This being said, Rachael will rock the baby bump with more style than anyone on the planet, and her viewers will know she is human and not just a frilly fashionista...and we love.love her for that as well. I have to admit, I waited 9 years to have children and am glad I did so I could build my career and travel with my spouse. LOVE YOUR SHOW !!! Get goin on the family Roger and keep Miss Rachael in perspective. Life is more than just a dress.
