I Hate Jill Zarin, Pregnant in Heels May 3, 2011 Pregnant in Heels by Quincy IL
Suspenders for pregnant women are horrible so they will not be sold in Rosie Pope’s chic maternity clothing establishment. Rosie wonders who would invent such a thing. They did look like something that you would use to secure a bicycle to the back of your car.
Rosie is riding in her black limousine and she gets a call from Hanna, one of her assistants. Melissa needs Rosie’s help. She is about to have her first baby, but she suffered three miscarriages and is worried about just about everything in her world. Melissa’s husband, Jared, shows a photograph of his wife at 105 lbs and tells us that we have to get her back there. Melissa was a model for twenty years. Jared is in property management. Melissa is in the process of renovating her 10,000 sq. ft. house. She is pressuring the men who are painting to finish as she is about to have her baby and to have a charity event at her home instead of a baby shower.
Rosie asks for a house tour in order to check baby proofing. The nursery is beautiful. They need drapes on the two windows, but Rosie is surprised that they had custom electric plug protectors made. There was a closet filled with clothes for a baby boy from 0 to 4 months.
Melissa introduces Rosie to a team of women who will help her with the baby. There is a house manager, a baby nurse, a prenatal educator, a personal trainer/nutritionist and an event planner. It takes a village to raise a baby. Rosie wonders why she has been asked to the meeting. Melissa wants Rosie to help with a fashion show at her charity event in a couple of days. Rosie agrees and will donate dresses that can be auctioned off for a Children’s Charity. Melissa would like clothes that the mothers can wear before and after the delivery. Melissa will also walk in the show at 34 weeks of pregnancy. Rosie will show her latest collection of maternity clothing.
Hannah, Rosie’s assistant, request a favor from Rosie. Hanna’s sister’s close friend has a home that is a wreck and her baby is coming soon. Lisa, the pregnant mom to be, is a singer in a popular women’s band. Her husband Steve also plays rock music. They are not typical Rosie clients because they are not millionaires, but they need help so Rosie will help them. Rosie arrives at the small apartment in a house to find Steve is a collector of knives, skulls and guitars. When Rosie arrives Steve says, “I hope she brought beer.” Lisa is about to have a baby and she does not know where she is going to put her.
Rosie immediately goes into inspection mode and she feels that lethal weapons on the walls are a danger to a baby. There are guitars propped up along the walls and there is a cabinet full of CDs that could fall if the baby tried to climb up on it. Rosie tells us that she is really worried about Steve’s attitude and she wants to get to work immediately. The couple shows her a closet that some people have suggested as a nursery, but Rosie said the baby needs a window and fresh air. While they are boxing up Steve’s precious collectibles, Rosie tells him that he has to grow up and he does not take this well. Steve and Lisa need to stop thinking about themselves and become parents. The environment should be safe for a child. Rosie has to figure out a way to make everyone happy when she redecorates the apartment.
At Melissa’s mansion, the preparations for the fashion show are at a standstill. The house renovations have not been completed. Rosie asks LT to stay at the home to make sure everything gets done properly, but she is a little concerned about his ability to follow through. They discuss the layout which includes a step and repeat for the photography of their famous and rich guests.
Rosie, LT, and Melissa hired maternity models that are beautiful and healthy. LT says that they will take style to a whole new level. The women are professional models who just happen to be pregnant.
At Rosie’s apartment, she meets with her husband to discuss their fertility issues. He has red eyes when she talks to him and she cries as she explains that her pregnancy was recently terminated. Rosie wonders if they should try again, but her husband says that the process is strenuous and painful for Rosie, but this is the way they can have their family and they should try again now. At Melissa’s mansion, Rosie has a conversation about Melissa’s concerns and the lost pregnancies the women have suffered is discussed. Melissa feels that she is to blame for her medical issues, but Rosie would hate it if her husband blamed her for having difficulties in getting pregnant.
Lisa and Steve are coming back from vacation to find their home looks great and it is still their style. There are guitars safely hung from the walls and red pillows on their couch for a splash of color. A corner of their bedroom has become a nursery and there is a mural on the wall with a bunny rabbit holding a guitar. The baby music carousel in the crib has tiny guitars on it. Rosie considers Steve and his collection when she renovated his apartment for the new family. Steve is over joyed and he hugs Rosie.
At the last moment, the Baby Shower/Fashion Show/Charity Event is ready. Melissa has red and black dress options to wear in the show, but she comes down the stair case in a flowered moo moo, which is not a part of the collection of dresses that Rosie has donated to the charity. Rosie believes this is a slap in the face. The charity event is a huge success and Melissa did wear a dress designed by Rosie on the walkway to the cheer and clapping of her guests.
Lisa and Steve become loving parents to their baby daughter, Emma Jane. Steve stepped up to the plate. Rosie reminds him to keep the skulls in storage. Lisa sings her baby to sleep every night.
Melissa and Jarod have a baby boy, Greyson. When Rosie goes to visit she is surprised the Melissa and Jarod are alone with their baby. They decided that they want to take care of him. Rosie feels that Melissa and her son will be on the best dressed list for a long time.
Last week, Rosie Pope shared that she held a title and was qualified to help one of her pregnant wives ask a Lord to be a godfather to her daughter.
Our IHJZ board contributor, kotagirl29, found a link to a video in which Rosie Pope answers a request for more information about Rosie’s claim to be a baroness last week. In this video Rosie makes the claim that the Labor Government gave her mother this title and that her mother rejected that honor for political reasons. (In the show, Rosie said that she had the title until she married her American husband.)
We have a IHJZ board contibutor, Kukulet, with extensive experience in the study of peerage. She gave us an accurate description of a life peerage in Britain: “Life peerages are created by the Queen, and approved by the Prime Minister and a special commission within the House of Lords. It’s usually an award for services rendered to Queen and country. For example, most former Prime Ministers are Life Peers. The recipient of a life peerage holds the title of Baron, but a life peerage cannot be inherited by the children of the recipient.”
We will continue to attempt to explain Rosie’s comments as she will not doubt be asked about this in the future.
This blog will be updated later today.
