There Goes the Motherhood is Bravo's latest deep dive into the world of wealthy parenting, and it's told through the lens of six Los Angeles mothers taking parenting expert Jill Spivack's eight-week mommy group course. Among the very fabulous moms is Leah Forester, who parents twins while running her brand. The moms have children of various ages, various family unit set-ups (we see in the preview one of the moms lobbying a potential sperm donor), and various parenting styles, which seems like a perfect conflict generator in a group that's otherwise supposed to be "bonding." So who is Leah Forester on There Goes the Motherhood?
She's a Venice-based stylist, creative director, and blogger, with an Instagram just as covetous as it sounds. Since the parenting group isn't necessarily newborn-focused, viewers get to witness the moms' different balancing acts, rather than their desperate, sleep-deprived, milk-stained selves. Leah took a break from work after her twins, Jett and Jade, were born in 2008. Instead, she shifted her focus to cultivating her parenting style — teaching herself to cook and learning about different approaches to child-rearing. She has since returned to work in various creative capacities, with her latest project being the launch of Venice Supper Club, "a roving dining experience out of her Venice studio that combines food, style, and the arts." Here's what else you need to know about Leah.
She's Is Very Qualified
Leah started out working in New York under the mentorship of such fashion powerhouses as Diane Von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, and Vera Wang. Considering she's still at it 20 years later, she probably owes a lot of her keen eye to those early influences. She now helps style and direct fashion shoots, dabbles in interior design, and runs her own supper club.
She's A Devoted Buddhist
And — as you can see from this shot on her Instagram — she's raising her kids in the practice. In her Bravo bio, she identifies Buddhism as being one of her driving forces, along with "creativity, and the good life."
She's Married To A Film Producer
Her husband, Bill Johnson, is a successful film producer, who seems just as spiritually dedicated as Leah. His production company is called Lotus Entertainment and he identifies his passion as being "to create commercially viable films which are positive, inspirational and raise consciousness." Among the projects under Johnson's belt is 2008's The Women. He also made an appearance on a 2012 episode of Shahs of Sunset.
