One way to make Rosie Pope’s mommy blog on iVillage incredibly entertaining? Imagine the Bravo star reading it out loud in her curiously appealing accent. Believe me, it really makes reading about how to keep the post-baby heat in a relationship enjoyably trippy.
After the Pregnant in Heels premiere last week, I stumbled across a Tweet from Pope in which she described her accent as “southern English.” But I really couldn’t care less how you define it. I just want it — even with the slight lisp — because it’s so unique. If I had her accent, I think I’d immediately become a more interesting person — and I tend to believe I need all the help I can get in that area.
But in all seriousness, I don’t have a tiny human, nor do I have immediate plans to obtain one, so I don’t know why I haven’t been able to stop seeking out info on baby-dom since I saw the show last week. Be it on Pope’s blog or on the show, I’m completely fascinated. (And I say that as someone who knows a fair amount about babies — meaning I know more than Rachel Green did before having Emma.) I credit part of that sudden interest in the fact that Pope has been so open about her troubles conceiving on the show. Rather than simply being a series about wacky pregnant ladies, Pregnant in Heels has an emotional filling. It’s a great balance that has made the entire subject more appealing — even to someone as painfully baby-less as yours truly.
What about you, PopWatchers? Are you, like me, suddenly terribly interested in this mom-to-be stuff? (Men are not excluded from this question.)
