We’re all used to the usual crazy of award shows and Fashion Week, which basically make up “The Rachel Zoe Project” every season, but what seems to get in everyone’s jeweled clutch are the constant complaints from Rachel’s husband, Rodger Berman.
In Tuesday’s (August 31) episode, the RZ team has gone to Milan Fashion Week to stalk the shows for Oscar dresses for their clients. Along the way, Rachel feels a fit of spontaneity when client-friend Kate Hudson needs her services for a last-minute show in London. After a day of Kate being “oh, so easy, breezy” while Rachel tells her how everything she does wreaks of roses, it’s back to the gown hunt. Rachel then discovers that her favorite dresses, which were supposedly promised to her, were given to other celebs with six days left until the Oscars.
We’re really not worried about Rachel and her clients. She always gets them the right dress for the perfect red carpet moment. We’re worried for Rodger, who seems to be increasingly agitated about their marriage lately. Sure, he has always complained about not spending enough time with Rachel (especially during fashion weeks and awards season), but now we have a new element. He wants a baby. In fact, Rachel’s sister wants them to have a baby. Even Kate wants Rachel to pop out a tiny little heiress to the RZ Dynasty. The big problem is does Rachel want one?
We can’t recall that Rachel has actually said anything definitively about whether she wants a child or not, but it’s clear she’s sick of hearing about it (especially when she’s having a Missoni moment).
We wonder how far the baby train will chug without Rachel hopping on and how long will Rodger wait around at the station for her do so. It’s pretty huge for a couple to disagree about having children and it can tear apart a marriage.
Do you think it’s time Rachel slowed down and boarded the baby train or do you think Rodger should respect that Rachel wants to work on expanding her business and not her family?
