Chatting with the Bravo star about Season 2,
babies and moms eating placenta
By Lie Shia Ong MSN TV
She's the go-to consultant for high-class expectant moms on "Pregnant in
Heels," and with two kids and one on the way, balancing a show, running a
maternity clothing boutique and MomPrep, a training academy for mothers-to-be,
Rosie Pope knows what she's talking about.
The star of Bravo's docudrama spoke with MSN TV about the
upcoming Season 2 premiere on May 15, the sometimes-outrageous requests of her
clients, the more serious storyline of infertility and the struggles she's
experienced as a mother herself.
Season 2 is, if you can believe it or not, a wilder, crazier ride than Season
1. I think Season 1 we had a lot of maternity clothes and baby showers, and
Season 2 we really push the envelope with hot-button topics in the media, and
they're going to be particularly controversial. We have everything from home
birth to placenta eating to breast-milk tasting and even pregnancy porn. There
are a lot of wild things and also this season, as well as following my
pregnancy, you also get to know me and my husband and our lives a little bit
Is there a particular episode you're just dying for fans to
Honestly, episode 1 we really start with a bang. Episode 1 is home birth,
placenta-eating and pregnancy porn. We really get started with a kick!
You've probably heard about Alicia Silverstone taking some heat about how she
feeds her baby. What's your take on that?
I think it's unnecessary when you can blend foods these days. So you don't
have to chew it in your mouth and spit it out. But, I will say, when you're
pregnant and you become a mom you get a little crazy. You want to do everything
that's best for your child, whatever that is, and sometimes we can get a little
bit misguided and sometimes we try new things. I think she was really trying
what she felt was best. So it came out of great intentions even if you can
achieve the same with a blender.
