Rodger explains why he needed the Vegas trip and why it was imperative that Jeremiah get the house ready for baby.

While finding the perfect house was one thing, furnishing it all is an entirely different challenge. It was imperative that Rachel and I got fully moved out of our apartment and into the new place before the baby comes, which means we are both depending on Jeremiah to furnish everything in just two weeks time. I know it is a big job to ask, but I trust him to do his job, and I couldn't really worry about it with everything else that is going on.
While Rachel was busy micromanaging a million different things and being pregnant, I don't think anyone realizes how stressed out I was overseeing the company. With only a few weeks left before I officially enter fatherhood, I knew that I need to seize the day to take some "me" time, so I planned a trip to Vegas with the boys. I know Rachel wouldn't be happy about it, but I think overall it is the best decision for both of us. I needed a day to unwind while she spends time with her sister, girlfriends, and Joey. Vegas, here I come!

Roger, You seem to try to make things as difficult for Rachel as you can. Almost like you are jealous of her success. If my husband took off to Vegas when I was 8 months pregnant, he wouldn't have a wife or child to come home to. Just lots of child support and alimony. You are very lucky she is so patient.
Roger, I'm glad you and Rachel came to an agreement about starting a family. I think that it is a good thing for Rachel, but it lets her see that there are other things in life worth living for than just the fashion world. Having a child can change your whole outlook on what is important. I think Rachel will realize it after the baby has arrived.
Your going to Vegas was something you need to do. Rachel has so much going on and since she does have her crew there it didn't hurt for you to get away for a day just to relax. I understand this was Rachel's life/business (the fashion world), but she needs to back off and let you handle some of the business dealing without her. You haven't let her down yet and I don't believe you will. She needs to TRUST you !
I am 38, a lawyer from Republic of Panama. Actually, I leave in Virginia, US. I watch you show because you guys are fun to watch.
I do not know how you can handle Rachel! You deserve a noble title, a location in heaven when you die! I like when you claim for your RIGHTS! I will like that you show people what you do in your company.
By the way, the Rachel's fall collection is AMAZING! OMG so classy. I am a big fan. I would like that you bring it to Nordstrom at Washington, D.C.
I am your fan too!
Im not much of a fashion person but I have enjoyed getting to meet your little family and big business on Bravo. You are brutally honest sometimes but I love how your wife knows that and accepts it. Keep up the good work on the show. I am so excited after last season to see the new little arrival. My husband and I struggled having children and they can be a wonderful blessing and you both have found that to be true with your new little family.
