The highlight of yesterday’s episode of BravoTV’s Pregnant in Heels came at the end. So, I will skip to discuss that for a moment before talking about the two couples that were the subject of the show. Rosie discovers with her husband during an ultrasound appointment what was causing her sore boobs and achy pregnant-like symptoms she has been experiencing. SHE IS PREGNANT! –And got so WITHOUT the IVF process. I believe in miracles and given the odds, this was indeed a miracle. What a blessing and with so many couples suffering from infertility and struggling to get pregnant, each and every story of miracles like these provide them hope. What a great ending.
Now back to the show. Like I mentioned last week, this week had Rosie playing marriage counselor to couples who called her not to help them prep for baby, but to settle a marital dispute. Diana (who is the most fashionably dressed pregnant woman to date on the show’s series so far) and Ashley, a dashing and handsome Brit disagree on whether to move to a larger apartment before or shortly after the baby is born. Rosie calls in a realtor who shows the couple a few fantastic million dollar properties in the city with breath taking views and in posh apartment buildings with other families. Ashley, who does not want to move, twists up his nose and finds something to complain about each property. It looked like a total set up because there are plenty of crappy places with lots of space In New York city the realtor could’ve taken the couple to for balance sake, but this isn’t TLC’s House Hunters so I had to check myself. When Diana and Ashley still cannot agree, Rosie brings in James, a design expert who focuses on maximizing small spaces.
In short order, after taking in Diana’s concerns, he transforms the couple’s one year old daughter Khloe’s room into a room for two princesses. It had too much going on it for me, but Diana was moved by all the monogrammed and personalized knick knacks of the two girls’ names all over the place. (I love the kids’ names: Khloe and Lola, for the new baby, is so classic and dainty, but still powerful and strong) So Ashley “won” this round! Dude was probably thinking to himself “I didn’t need to hire Rosie. All I needed was a Pottery Barn catalog.” Diana agreed that it would be unfair to uproot her daughter to move but in all honesty, kids that young adapt. It’s not like Khloe was old enough to have had a bunch o friends and schedules that she’d really miss. But still, the space they were in seemed fine for New York City standards. If you want space, move to the burbs! My thoughts are that Diana was being a princess herself about the request to move and I didn’t really buy her argument that the one-year old will feel her parents loved her less if she had to share a room with her baby sister. Get outta here!!
You are fab, have a cute little lisp and resemble the very adorable and loveable Drew Barrymore and all, Diana, but you know you were being a little primadonna asking to move, boo.
The other story is of the Cougar and the Hunk. Rebecca, a 33 year old opera singer snagged a young 24 year old hottie, Patrick, she met on an audition in the city. In no time flat, the two found themselves married with two kids and another on the way. The hormones going through Becca turned her totally off to Patrick and had her all cranky. She’s p’od that she cares for the kids on her own with little help from Patrick.
|During a scene, it gets heated between Patrick & Rebecca|
Meanwhile, Patrick, a well-paid nutritionist, is just trying to survive the pregnancy without gaining 90 sympathy pounds as he did for one of Rebecca’s previous pregnancies. After getting on the ball and shedding those pounds, Patrick seems peeved and trapped at having married so young and while still in his prime. Rebecca cuts him off, speaks for him and generally doesn’t seem to respect the poor feller. You can tell she is playing the “age card” in the relationship. Watching the two on television had me sad because at the rate they were going, I couldn’t see a long history together with them.
I loved the marriage counselor, Dr. Debbie, that Rosie brought in to help because she quickly read the situation and dispensed invaluable advice that even viewers of the program could benefit from…and they didn’t have to hire a million dollar maternity concierge or therapist for it.
By the end, Rosie figures out what I always think is true for any married woman, pregnant or not. Keep doing whatever it is in your life before the husband and kids that make you happy. Women rarely do and we frequently sacrifice our wants and desire for the family. Rosie arranges for voice lessons at an opera house and you could see Rebecca’s light start to shine again IMMEDIATELY. She literally looks like a different person and even becomes prettier inside and out to me by the end of her segment. Really. At the show’s end, she looked so beautiful and glowing holding her gorgeous baby boy, Jacob, in her hands. It looks as though she found herself again. Kudos.
Next week, there is a black mom client, the first and only this season because it is the show’s finale. Poor mom has to represent for the sisters. Loved the line she said during the preview about not wanting to hire a “hot nanny”. Now when you got Rob Lowe banging his babysitter, Jude Law sexing the nanny and now Arnold having a love child with his housekeeper, I see why the sister is concerned!
Check out a video of the fab homes Ashley and Diana looked at (oh and talk about Pregnant in Heels, check out the poshilicious stilettos this 33 weeks pregnant mom is wearing in the scene.) Whoa! :
