Rachel Zoe & (her assistant) Brad Goreski have split up! No!


Rachel Zoe and her assistant/deputy stylist dude Brad Goreski have split up. Apparently, the split is amicable. Why is this news so devastating to me? Probably because Brad Goreski MAKES The Rachel Zoe Project. He’s the heart, the emotional center, the sweetness and the light. Without him, TRZP is just going to be an exercise in narcissism and manufactured coke drama. BRAD!!!!

“Bananas!” Celeb stylist Rachel Zoe and her bow-tie clad assistant Brad Goreski have sadly decided to go their separate ways, effective Oct. 1.

“I love Rachel and she’s taught me everything I know,” Goreski, 33, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “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.”

Breaking the news to Zoe about a month ago was nothing short of “major.”

“We couldn’t stop hugging and we couldn’t stop crying,” she says. “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.’”

Goreski is counting on that.

“I hope she’ll continue to teach me more and more,” he says. And while the dynamic duo’s frenzied pace has been constant fodder for Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, filling Goreski’s designer shoes will be no easy feat.

“We have a relationship that’s not normal. I jump into bed with him and wake him up and we have these pow wows and he’s like, ‘Wow, I haven’t brushed my teeth,’” Zoe says. “I don’t want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky. No one’s ever going to be Brad to me.”

I think – no, I know – Zoe is a major pill to work for. Yes, the perks are great, and yes, she’s actually pretty nice to her employees, but she’s not half as organized as she thinks she is, and she just seems like a time-sucker. Something that could easily take an hour to decide will take DAYS for Zoe.

Also – Zoe’s old deputy Taylor left last year under somewhat suspicious circumstances – although Taylor always maintained that the alleged “theft” drama was just manufactured for the show. So now Zoe is without the two people who really knew her job backwards and forward. Is this the end of TRZP?

    I read this on the New York Post site this morning! *SOB* I love him! He’s the reason why I watch the show-she drives me nuts! I wonder if he’ll get his own show?

  2. Taurus says:

    Nooooooooo I love Brad:( Show’s over now:-/

    SB: I thought he was in his mid to late 20’s. He doesn’t give me 33 at all

  3. LittleFATMe says:

    🙁 Major pout face.

  4. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    OMG Can I have his job? I swear to God I will pack my life up and move to LA and be her slave if I can just be around actual haute couture and amazing designer fashion. OMG Brad your so stupid. Gonna miss you though.

  5. Katyusha says:

    In that top picture, Rachel looks 100 years old.

    Does anyone know if she smokes? She should get those nasolabial folds filled in.

  6. Lisa S says:

    Ah noooo, Brad is such a sweetie and a hard worker. Sad. 🙁

  7. devilgirl says:

    I couldn’t stand working for her! I would go nuts!

  8. michkabibbles says:

    i love how half the comments on this site are “oh my god, what did she do to her face, she needs to stop with the botox and the fillers!”, and the other half are “oh my god, look at her face, she needs so much botox and fillers!”.

  9. OXA says:

    Noooooooooooooooooooooo point in watching anymore.

  10. kellogg says:

    @michkabibble agree!

  11. Riley says:

    I wonder if he left because Rachel is going to give into her wife’s desires and grant Rodg the baby she has always wanted. I bet next season of TRZP will focus even more on Rodg and Rach and the potential Harry Garcia or Scarlett Begonias they may bring into this world. Brad was probably like, Bitch, I ain’t gonna lose any airtime due to your womb. Actually, I don’t see Rach having a baby herself but I do see her getting a surrogate or adopting. I bet they get a surrogate though, especially since SJP and MB have such cute daughters.

  12. kelbear says:

    Say it isn’t so!!!

  13. db8ng1 says:

    Since Taylor and Brad are gone, is there any reason really to watch TRZP anymore? I mean, how much of Rodger’s bitching and Rachel’s wining can we handle?

  14. Linda says:

    Only one left, the hubby. How long will he be there?

  15. Kim says:

    ITA Linda I saw the show with the fertility doctor and its obviuous they are not on the same page regarding starting a family.I’ve only seen 3 episodes so I don’t know the back story but he seems to be a the breaking point on this issue

  16. Victoria says:

    I dont think she could physically have a baby. She’d first of all have to gain weight and we all know that’s not happening. This baby talk is just talk.

  17. Benny says:

    Isn’t she about 50? If she were to have kids now, she’d have to adopt or get a surrogate, or do something drastic that takes a lot of planning and time. I don’t see her doing that (not that there’s anything wrong with that – people shouldn’t have kids unless they *really* want to, and if she doesn’t really want to, then that’s great too).

    But I don’t get why people like this are in business in the first place. Do we really need to pay people to tell us what jewelry to wear? That’s a sad comment on society.

  18. Mistral says:

    He’s a hottie…

  19. Taurus says:

    @Benny I think she’s only 39:-/
    Sad to say people like her are needed for a small demographic of people. These celebs make money off of their appearance and most of them are either too busy or not creative enough to pull together those red carpet looks. If I was a celeb I would def have a stylist on the payroll. The only sad part is having a tv show dedicated to it. It is fun to watch though.

  20. Hautie says:

    I realize People magazine is going to bend over and kiss her b*tt… but I agree she is too much of a pill to work with and have it not end badly.

    I read that this was not so sweet of a break up.


    (I hope it is okay to link to it)

    But Zoe was so nasty to Taylor when she left. Yet, Taylor has done very well for her self since going solo.

    Zoe is just interested in being another self centered entitled female roaming around LA…

  21. spooge says:

    Who’s the dweeb? Man….

  22. Marjalane says:

    I can’t remember what I site I saw it on, but I read that this wasn’t amicable at all! But whatever, what I really want to know is if there is some kind of proof that Rachel is only 38?! I about choked when I heard her say that on this season’s last show! She looks older than most 50 something’s I know.

  23. Mary says:

    I’ve been watching most of the episodes, trust me she does not eat, AT ALL. See for yourself on the repeats. They are at lunch or at dinner everyone is eating and her plate is full !. Really she must weight like 95 lb. what the hell is it coke, meth , anorexia. No wonder she can’t or won’t get pregnant. Her husband wants kids Now. Geez, reality shows !!!

  24. Tess says:

    I’ll miss him, too.

    By the by, he’s a dead ringer for Ted Bundy.

  25. Xx says:

    Holy cow. I am distraught about this. So sad for everyone involved. Poor Rach is losing her core support and Roger is being such a pain in the ass to boot. That sucks.

  26. Bee says:

    I bet Rachel’s going to lose some of her clients now. Molly Simms and Anne Hathaway seemed very attached to Brad. No Brad = No show.

  27. LolaBella says:

    The Rachel Zoe Project is a guilty pleasure of mine. I watch for the fashion, for Brad and for RZ’s fabulous Hermes Birkin porn.

    Taylor’s departure changed the dynamic of the show (for the better) and now with Brad leaving the show will not be as interesting, IMHO.

    RZ’s clients seem to like Brad (Anne Hathaway and Molly Sims seemed to just LOVE him) so I think his departure will have an impact with RZ’s clients as well ast the viewership of TRZP.

    Love how Brad saved the day for Johnny Weir on last week’s episode and I seemed to detect a mutual attraction between him and Mr. Weir.

    The best of luck to both Brad and RZ.

    I also wonder if the tone of the show is about to change with the whole ‘Rachel maybe trying to get pregnant for Rodger’ storyline.

  28. LBees says:

    She is a prune, no
    juice. Left out in the sun to
    die. Desiccation.

  29. wunderkindt says:

    Brad is such a sweetie-he’s way too good for that wretched prune Zoe!

  30. lin234 says:

    Kudos to the people who pointed out the obvious, that between her age and anorexia, she can’t have kids. I’m sure she’s done some horrible damage to her eggs with her lifestyle… Wasn’t there a rumor that she would slip coke into clients clothes? Hinted by Nicole Richie or something?

    I’ve only watched a few episodes and it was annoying to see people treat her anorexia like it doesn’t exist. I saw that episode where she was trying on a ton of clothes for a event because she didn’t want to be criticized for being too thin. ummmm When your chest looks like a rib cage it’s time for a sit down. I understand why Brad never said a word but her husband? Does anyone else get the feeling he’s gay?

    It’s funny when her husband would want to go out to dinner and she was like “your always eating”.

    I love the fashion though! What a dream job.

  31. Trillion says:

    Someone needs to tell her to cover up that skeletal decollete. I don’t even know if you could technically call it decollete at this point. Cover those bones up! Brad is pretty much the reason to watch. I’d be surprised if they get another season.

  32. mln says:

    I think Brad needs to leave with Roger and start a family
    in a Rachel-free environment they would be good co-parents.

  33. Mary says:

    Couldn’t work for her she is in a constant tailspin and so disorganized. Plus she takes on ridiculous projects with not enough people to do them. Plus I would go crazy listening to Shut the Front Door 9,000 times a day or this is XXXXXXX substitute your own word she goes from one to anothe each episode.

  34. hhh says:

    Nooooooooo! I love you Bradley!
