Rodger Berman

Rodger shares how happy he was to see Skyler in the backseat and the process it took to get him there.

on Oct 18, 20110

The home stretch of Rachel's pregnancy was a very exciting and important time for us all to take care of last-minute preparations for baby Berman's arrival. Once I made sure that everyone would not be bothering Rachel with anything work-related, I focused on my next very crucial mission: to find a push present.
For years, Rachel has talked about wanting a cushion cut diamond so I turned to our longtime friend and jeweler, Neil Lane, to find something truly amazing. . .which I did! I picked out the sickest diamond ring to surprise her with while she was in the hospital.

When Rachel went into labor, I obviously wanted to film everything—I tried to hire a professional videographer, but that didn't go over so well -- and even though she hated me for it, I did get some great footage of her doing her hair at 4 o'clock in the morning right after her water broke.

Roger: how about a thank you to Jeremiah for getting the nursery ready for you son. After you fired him, he does not owe you anything, but he has more class than you. I am embarrassed for you.

Congratulations to the both of you. I saw the pictures of your line on the Neiman Marcus website. The clothes are really expensive and beyond the reach of the average viewer. You guys have expensive tastes renting the large Beverly Hills area house. I think the money could have better been used to keep Jeremiah on the payroll but that is your business. You cannot sustain an operation like yours just catering to the Hollywood high end crowd. Good luck. You will need it.

You go Jeannie V! Could Bravo please bring Jeremiah back with his own show, he is sooooo much more talented, interesting and entertaining. Maybe he could replace Roger altogether and Roger can be a stay at home Mr. Mom. Then everyone would be happy! No more listening to Diva Rodge constantly Whine! Man up and change some diapers Rodge.

I know that Skyler was born a while ago but, "CONGRATULATIONS"! In reguards to Jeremiah he is fabulous and has shown how dedicated he is to the Zoe empire. I know my opinion mean nothing but honestly from what I have seen he deserves to be apart of the company and of the family. His talent is definately interior design but why not give him the chance to prove he can be talented in the fashion world too. I am happy for you and hope you bring Jeremiah back.

Congratulations on your new son. Very sad with the way you all treated Jeremi h. He never had a chance. Joey and Raqhel totally ignored him . Rachel and Joey were too busy being buddy buddy. SHe never took time with Jeremiah. I have to say I enjoyed the show more whrn Joey wasn't on because he acts like a 12 year old girl. Silly , loud and whiny..Good luck with the show because you've lost me as a viewer.

Agreed. This Rodger character is a real jerk. I am losing interest in the show big time. I will definitely stop watching the show once Jeremiah is really gone.

Agree!! with the comment from Jeannie V. Fame and Money seems to change everyone for the worse. Jeremiah needs to grow some balls and say when a "enough is enough"

Congrats to you both! But I have to say, team Zoe... I'm a little disappointed. You should have at least thanked Jeremiah for doing you such a beautiful favor. I was expecting a least a little shoutout on the blogs. Bad form Team Zoe :(.

Roger, You only embarrassed yourself by letting Jeremiah go. Obviously you do not know anything about dealing with employees and running a business. It will be very interesting to see how long it will take before you blow the business.

For the love of Money (something I know you have) invest some money in your education, and take a Management workshop, Rodger!. The way you handled the meeting with Jeremiah, was painful to watch, not only because it was a pity that he was never given the chance to do what he was originally hired for, but for the way you did it. No leadership, management skills at all!.

The 'kid' did a terrific job when you gave him the incredibly difficult task to decorate a huge house in a very short amount of time. Classy and gorgeous, and you kind of 'appreciate it', but you didn't even sound sincere. If you were, then again, invest in your education so you can learn how to match your words with your body language, including tone of voice.

You were telling Jeremiah that he was out of his line of work...hmmm...I would say the same thing about you and somehow you are handling, or maybe it is just that Rachel wouldn't fire you. You seem to be fed up with fashion, you don't seem to care about styling, and you don't seem to care about your employees. Maybe the one who should look for what he is really good at, it's you and not Jeremiah, who at least showed much more interested than you in Rachel's business?.

You are a nice guy. Terrible boss, but nice guy.

Congratulations Rodger and Rachel on the birth of your son Skyler. May you all be blessed with every happiness from above :)))

Wow. Just caught the show tonight to see how Jeremiah was treated. Even in Rodger's blog he states he just needed Jeremiah to get the house decorated in 2 weeks and couldn't worry about it-he needed to get to Vegas for "me time". Really??? Then the girls have the nerve to call Jeremiah back to decorate the nursery. I've always enjoyed the show (can just tolerate Rodger's whining) but it's time to rethink what I do with my "me time".

Rodger - Congratulations on the birth of your son. Do you know that while you were in the hospital Jeremiah was called to set up the Nursery and he came right over and did it all himself. What a class act. You fire him and he still wants to continue to do a great job. This is the kind of person you definitely need at Rachel Zoe, Inc. If you were smart, you would hire him back and this time give him a chance to style. Then you can start working into a Rachel Zoe Home Line - Jeremiah could handle that with one hand tied behind his back.
