Rachel Zoe explains Brad Goreski exit on 'The Rachel Zoe Project'
Rachel Zoe, stylist to the celebs and star of the Bravo's hit show, "The Rachel Zoe Project," reveals the reason for her former assistant Brad Goreski's sudden exit on the show's premiere.
"After three years of working together, Brad sat Roger and I down and said, 'I need to make a change. I want to be at home with my dog and my boyfriend, I want my personal life, I want to get out of the limelight,'" Zoe said in a preview clip. "And of course, within a week of us parting, when Brad went out on his own as a stylist he started to pursue our clients, starting going to all these events and doing all the things he said he had no interest in. It's not the first time I've been used. I would say it's going to be the last time, though."
Zoe and Goreski announced last September that they planned on parting ways and that it was amicable.
"I love Rachel and she's taught me everything I know," Goreski told People magazine at the time. "But there's a point where either I do it now or I'll never know what it's like to spread my wings and soar."
Zoe also had an acrimonious parting with Goreski's predecessor, Taylor Jacobson, who successfully launched her own styling career after appearing on the reality series.
The new season of "The Rachel Zoe Project" will follow the stylist as she proceeds without her left-hand-man and with the additional stress of being pregnant.
It was announced in March that Goreski would be getting his own Bravo show with a working title of "It's a Brad Brad World." The docu-series will follow Goreski as he embarks on his new business venture and tries to maintain his personal life.
Goreski told a fan on Twitter on September 5 that there is "no release date yet" for the series.
Goreski is also working on a book, "Born to Be Brad: Life and Style Lessons From the Front Lines of Fashion." The memoir will reportedly follow his childhood and experience working at Vogue magazine and for Rachel Zoe.
In March, Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman welcomed their son Skyler Morrison. The stylist announced the birth of their son on Twitter, mentioning that he weighed in at 6 lbs., 12 oz. and was 20 inches long.
"@rbermanus and I couldn't be happier with little Skyler Morrison in our arms...he is everything. XoRZ," Zoe, 39, said on her Twitter page on Wednesday, March 24.
Zoe met investment banker Berman in college at George Washington University. The couple got married in 1996.
Zoe announced her pregnancy on Twitter, following months of mass speculation to her pregnancy.
"Hey everyone! I want to officially confirm to my loyal friends and followers that I am pregnant," Zoe wrote. "I feel great, Rodger and I are beyond excited and so thankful for all of your love and support."
At the time, Berman wrote on his Bravo blog for his wife's show that he was hoping his wife would be as excited about the baby as she is about Chanel.
"She gets so much joy out of styling and literally a high when she sees Chanel," he wrote. "I wish she could look into the future and understand what it might feel like to have a child - because I know she would feel the same and hopefully more. We'll see."
"The Rachel Zoe Project" premieres on September 6 at 10 p.m. ET, watch a clip below.
