Rodger Berman: 10 Things I Love About You

You may have started watching Bravo’s Rachel Zoe Project an insider’s look at the fashion industry, but you’ll quickly become entranced by Rachel’s mop-headed husband, Rodger. They bicker. They laugh. They get ready. They talk about getting ready.

I am fascinated by Rachel and Rodger’s 21-year relationship. I think  they make a nice couple, especially since most of what you see on reality TV is dysfunctional and shocking.  There’s lots to love about Rodger.

    Even though there is constant dialogue about how busy they are, Rachel and Rodger spend a lot of time together. He goes to work with her, travels with her often, and is her constant +1 to special events. He loves hanging out with his wife.

    Even though he loves the perks of Rachel's high-profile job, Rodger always urges her to be normal. He conspired with her sister to get Rachel to slow down when she was pregnant. He is resistant to the idea of buying a 2nd residence in New York. Rodger is a grounding influence on Rachel.

    With an MBA from George Washington University, Rodger went to work as a banker on Wall Street for 8 years. But when Zoe Industries took off, Rodger changed gears and learned the ropes of Rachel's world. That kind of support is rare.

    Even though they bicker sometimes, Rodger seems genuinely happy about Rachel's success and the secondary role he plays in it. He's not jealous. He's part of her team.

    I keep waiting for Team Zoe to address the elephant in the room: Rodger's hair. I mean, he lives with a full-time hair stylist. His wife made her career out of making sure people don't look ridiculous. Rodger, from the neck up, looks like an unwashed leftover from the grunge movement. I don't get it, but I love that he is blase about it!

    There's no doubt about it—Rodger is head-over-heels-nuts about his son, Skyler. He jokes about how Rachel dresses him up in frou-frou ways, but he is always the first to exclaim in a proud-dad voice, "Look how CUTE you look!"

    Rodger has become a bit of a clothes horse in his own right. Rachel has this to say about Rodger's fussing over outfits: "I want to ruin Rodger's life every time he tortures me about an outfit. But then I realize…I did this to him."
