Rodger Berman: My Sexuality Is A Hotly Debated Topic
Tuesday is turning into a Zoe, Inc. kinda day! While his wife was debuting her new line (and baby boy!) to WWD, hubbie Rodger Berman was dishing to Harper’s Bazaar about life with his fashion-obsessed wife, his sexuality, and what exactly their baby will wear.
We’ve made no secret of our love for Rodger. Besides seeming like an all-around (if baby-obsessed) nice guy, he also has what is apparently a wonderfully self-deprecating sense of humor — something particularly important when one is constantly surrounded by Zoe and her “gaggle of gays.” Not only does he know how to avoid the minefield that is a hotel room peppered with “enough tranny-heeled shoes… to fill a transgender shoe store,” he does it with aplomb.
On life with Rachel:
Nothing makes your station in life more clear than when a stranger hands you a camera while he poses with your wife. But I’m proud to say I can now add amateur photographer to my growing list of secondary occupations, which also includes valet, personal assistant, and publicist.
On their baby:
I won’t be surprised if our baby has Chanel diapers, Missoni blankets, and an Hermès bassinet. People say he or she is going to be the most fashionable baby ever. And I believe them.
On his sexuality and newfound fashion prowess:
For a heterosexual man—I know that’s a hotly debated topic, but only among those who don’t know me—I have grown to really appreciate fashion. My favorite fashion shows are Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, and Oscar de la Renta because they always offer up beautiful clothes that I can actually imagine Rachel and her clients wearing.
