We are back... bringing you season three! Very exciting.
Taylor being fired came as a complete shock to me. One day she was there and the next day, she was not. It was obviously upsetting to me because Taylor and I had become such a good team working together. To have your partner just taken away from you with no notice is quite jarring. It was tough at first getting used to her her absence. As you could all see from the past two seasons, she was a very vocal and present force in Rachel's company. The world doesn't stop though and the work kept coming in, so we just continued working away.
We needed to hire someone, but Taylor's shoes were going to be hard to fill since she had been with Rachel for so long and everybody was familiar with her. I knew though that once awards season started we would need an extra set of hands. Jordan, who has been with Rachel as an full time employee for over a year now, was so amazing through this process and transition. We couldn't have done it without her. She really began to step out of the wings and on to center stage, so to speak. It's been really great watching her grow! After interviewing quite a few people, Ashley was definitely the most qualified candidate and we felt really certain that she was the girl for the job. I had heard amazing things about her through the grapevine, as had Rachel, so she was hired. I don't wanna give away too much... she is great!
Our first major job without Taylor was the Harper's Bazaar cover shoot with Demi Moore. I absolutely love working with Demi. She is so elegant, graceful and beautiful. She is SO much fun to dress! We've had many great moments this year with her, but this shoot is definitely the highlight. Giraffes, mice, oversized chairs, kiddie pools...AMAZING!
Things were off to a good start and I am interested to see what you think of the new hire, Ashley. You get to see more of her next week when madness ensues around the Golden Globes.
I watched all the episodes last season and I have to say ,on occasions I thought you were alittle two faced when it came to Taylor. Maybe you just felt threatened. Taylor had a very strong personality and liked to intimate people. I think one of my favorite episodes was when you were wearing those really short shorts, too funny. Do you ever get star struck when working with famous people?
YEAH BRAD!!!! Congrats on your new position!! I'm very happy for you and I believe you deserved it. I can honestly say that I'm happy about that nasty skank Taylor. I can't believe she was soo miserable. I would kill for that job and I would eat, sleep and breathe it. Obviously she didn't appreciate the position she had. I know girls that would work for samples alone...not money..lol I am looking forward to an amazing season and cannot wait to see what happens. PS. You are the only one that can get away with the shorts/long sleeve top outfit...LOL Nice legs!!!
Brad, PLEASE.... Have to know where to get those HONEY-COLORED Sunglasses you wore to the Demi Moore shoot! Who makes them? My husband never loves anything and he went 'bananans' over those...
Brad, congrats on you'r new position and good riddance to Taylor. She reminds me of that cartoon Daria, that came on MTV, monotone voice, negative and never happy. She was jealous of you and your relationship with Rachael and treated Rachael like she was the employee rather than her boss. Again, good riddance Taylor.
Brad, I like you on the show, and it's nice that you got a promotion (hope you got a raise to go with it)....but every good show needs an antagonist....with Taylor and her fabulous style gone, the show was a bit flat. The new girls look really random....nothing special.
Brad, When asked if you and Taylor were friends, she said you were "Besties". Yet, one of the first things out of your mouth when you found out Taylor was fired was, "Well, I guess Taylor wasn't who we thought she was." Why would you make a statement like that, especially since you already had her job handed to you with no effort, whatsoever, on your part? That was a jerky thing for you to say. It makes me think you were waiting for her exit so that you could take her job and that, deep down, you are not a nice person. Rachel is trying so hard to make us believe you are as capable as Taylor in your new job. I'm sure you will be eventually, but I know you have a lot to learn right now.
Brad!! Im so glad that you got promoted and that taylor is gone. I would kill for her job so it just made me angry to watch her complain to poor rachel. But anyways, i love your style and the relationship that you and rachel have. The show is completly entertaining and i cant wait for all the new episodes!!! Ive been living of re-runs for too long!
Brad great to see you!!!! @"someone who thinks you're not so nice"
Just because your are "Besties" with someone you work with does not mean that you know what they are up to behind their "social mask". When one of me "besties" at work got fired I too was shocked and thought too that I didn't know who they really were. Brad was not being a jerk for saying "Well, I quess Taylor wasn't who we thought she was," it was Taylor that was being the jerk for opening the door to be fired. There is alot that we don't know and probably will never find out. I believe that Rachel and Rodger would not have fired her without good reason. Brad your will shine!!!!!!!
Brad I enjoy your positive energy with your work- I think you at times eclipsed Taylor and shined when she was use to being the jewel. She she had a passive aggressive personality which was hard to watch for me. Congrats!! Can't wait for the next episode-
Now is your time to shine...don't let RZ inc down. You were so sweet last season about the whole Paris trip. Taylor was such a B**** about it. Why did she bring her parents on the show??? Weird...who has their parents help them with work???
I look forward to seeing more of you and your style this season. Can't wait for the short-shorts!!
I loved this show last season and really loved watching you, Brad, however... For Bravo to take, now two shows, to trash Taylor, really shows either sleazy editing or a very desperate attempt, on the part of the Rachel Zoe Company, to scare potential clients away from Tayor... Incredibly unprofessional. Why not take the high road and have a bit of class? Just a thought.
I'm a huge BRAD FAN....his upbeat attitude and professionalism are really starting to shine since the departure of the black cloud, aka Taylor. I think even Rachel will start to lighten up the more she is around him...She and Taylor both operated in the "negative" stress mode and I think things are going to change- for the better!! Go Brad!!!
Rooted for you since the beginning! Taylor is gone, Thank God. Now let us never mention her name again. I know the shows are already taped, but I do hope you picked up on Rachel's facial expressions and realize that she does not want to hear "her" name again. Leave it all behind and SHINE Mon petite. You finally have what you wanted. The head job, great hard working talented people around and you are dressing the stars! The only thing out of your mouth should be things that make Rachel's life easier. Good Luck! Still rooting for ya.
IT'S HORRIBLY UNCLASSY TO BAD MOUTH A FORMER FRIEND PUBLICLY AND TO TAKE PART IN PREVENTING HER FROM MAKING A LIVING. You guys are bullies and dreadfully spiteful. It shows areal lack of integrity.
It is time to put Taylor in the past and work on what seems to be a very successful future! I was really digging your new look! You are just so damn cute!!
Brad, it was hilarious when you said that not having Taylor around gave you a feeling like you just burnt your bra . LOL! That was the best line ever from this show, and it was obvious you meant it!
I'm happy for you that things worked out the way they did and glad to see you doing well in your new role. Congrats! You hung in there and it paid off. Well done!
Brad, I have cheered for you since the first episode you were on, I couldn't bealieve that someone so nasty and negative had a jog like she did. I cried for you when you cried, it broke my heart to see someone treated that way. BUT every episode you got stronger and stronger,I watched you grow as a person and as a stylist, sometimes we dont realize how much we really learn when we are being treated so bad. I couldnt wait to see the new season, the smile on your face, the sparkel in your eyes was amazing, Taylor leaving was good for you, I think we are going to see the "real" Brad this season. Congrats on the new job, I wish you nothing but love, and happiness
Let's put it this way, it is none of your business why another employee is fired and not your place to comment on it, especially of national TV. You know what Rodger and Rachel told you. You can't really say "for sure" that Taylor stole". Rodger and Rachel were very careful about the wording they used. They never said Taylor "stole", but you did. They know poor choices of words could put them in a position of being sued. If they believe Taylor actually stole from them, they should contact the proper authorities and not smire this women. It seems they just want to keep Taylor out of the fashion business, because she has all of Rachel's knowledge. You blame Taylor for your shortcomings and your crying spells. Brad, you are a grown man and should have been in control of your emotions. However, I will give you credit where it is due. You made Ashley welcome and invited her to express her ideas freely so that she can reach her full potential in her job.
I can't understand why a handful of people are trying to be judgmental about Taylor's departure and placing blame on you. The rest of us obviously do not know everything that happened that led to Taylor's firing, nor is it really any of our business. People who do not know the whole story should shut up. I do not think it is "bad mouthing" Taylor to state facts. Neither you nor anyone else has engaged in "bad mouthing." And the other issue is that with reality TV, it is a snap shot into the lives of everyone on the show. If you are feeling something about a person and wish to express it, it's not "bad mouthing" either. I wish those who are so eager to cast stones had cameras following them around all day. I wonder what we would hear come out of their mouths. Congratulations on your promotion and on another season. I wish you the best of luck.
Yeah for you Brad!!
Since the show first began, I wanted Taylor gone. She is such a winer...and complainer. You will be better than she ever thought she was.
I look forward to the upcoming episodes..
Brad, omg, you are the star of the show as far as I'm concerned. You are so fun to watch, I love it when you break out in dance! Congrats on the new position! Can't wait to see more!!!!
Taylor is good but you are better! You and Zoe seems to be very patient individuals and having Taylor around with a different personality kimda gives balance to your team. However, what you need is someone who has a strong personality but not too loud and not so confrontational as Taylor!
I am definitely a Brad fan ... you have a way of calming the energy in a room, and even though I can only imagine how stressful it can get trying to keep all the loose ends from coming completely unraveled, your attitude and ability are sure to get the job done. Rachel is so adorably funny and talented, and you two make a good team. I know things got serious real fast for you after Taylor's departure, but you can obviously handle it.
Loved, loved, loved the line about "Taylor being gone felt a bit like burning your bra"!!! You are too darn cute for words! Also love your new macho-esque look ... it makes you look like you mean serious business. You are the right hand man to a serious player in the game, and you deserve to be there every step of the way. Congrats on your promotion, Brad. You're in it for real now!
Take the helm Brad you are very capable, don't let the negative people affect your shine.... I honestly don't understand it taking so long to say goodbye to Taylor her negativity was overwhelming. Friendship can only take you so far in life and in that job people skills are nessessary. Come on folks, we all no that she has none. Brad it's time to wear the big boy pants and I have total faith in you. Love the new look.........Take care......
Brad! I'm happy that Taylor's gone and you are left to let your styling talent free. She was damn negative and moody and couldn't just come out and say what was on her mind. She was a game player and at the end of the day was detrimental to the process and it wasn't healthy for all concerned. You all need to move on and the proof in the pudding was the succussful and fun Demi Moore shoot - she was stunning! I look forward to more fun on the Rachel Zoe Project and Ashley looks like a great fit!
Brad. Congrats on your new position. How cute are you!! I like the style Rachel gave you. Cute and rugged!! I think you're a hoot....love watching you on the show.
Brad, I am so proud of you as a person, employee and a man. You held your ground, vented your frustrations in a healthy way and did nothing but persevere despite Taylor's undermining ways. I loved when Taylor tells you to go to France and, like you're on "Taylor's sick chess board" you say, "Is this where I'm supposed to say 'No, you go?'" Loved It! You're why I continued to watch this show. Without you, Taylor's behavior would have caused me to leave the remote alone and grab an uplifting book. After watching Rachel "survive without Taylor and the drama," and seeing you greet the stars, loving what you do, it makes for a very interesting time that my eight year old son finds awesome, "without that Taylor who I felt like kicking for making Brad cry." Congrats to all!
Brad your it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at last. And now that you have Ashley on your team, the show was calm and everything flowed nicely, it was different from last year how nice is that. Best of everything to all, and now!!!! we need to think of a new addition to the Rachel & Brad family as we watch the show ( thing positive on this story line). Love to all
Miss Pat R.
"i literally die!" LOL!
I so love this show.
I'm learning a lot since we have the same job.
Best of Luck y'all!
Brad... Nice Guys DO Finish FIRST!!!! So happy for you! And, yes, even though Taylor was excellent at what she did... there is so much more yin/yang flow productivity. Organized chaos w/out drama!!! Love you! (Love your Mercedes and new look!). You passion for your job, and your compassion as a human being is refreshing!
LAST NIGHTS SHOW YOU ROCKED! after watching last nights show & the way you pulled it all together heloing Rach you are the 'star' now, better than Tay ever was! you will be appreciated bytDemi & Cam & many others who are seeing you 'shine' right now! I'm so proud of you, so shy & backward at first now helping rock the fashion world! you go honey don't let anything or anyone get in your way, not even and especially Tay! stay s trong & stay YOU!
People like Taylor can bully and suck the life out of their co-workers and "friends". They revel in drama and bring negativity to everything and everyone.They just can't stand to see people succeed...you have first hand knowledge of that. Part of Rachel's anxiety was directly related to Taylor. Taylor should have been taking care of Rachel's back not creating more problems in her alrady stressful life. Rodger was the one who saw the "real" Taylor. Sorry for ranting, people like Taylor just piss me off ...Anyway, good luck Brad, you are a good soul and I do love the show.
Look I Love you, your AWESOME! I was never a cheerleader. But after watching this weeks show I have to say: BRAD ! BRAD! HE'S OUR MAN ! IF HE CANN'T DO IT NO ONE CAN! ( except Rachel and maybe Ashley) LOL. HOLLA!
Brad, you exceeded our expectations. You rocked our world. The shoot went seamlessly without any cruelty being flung about. What a nice alternative.

I thought Taylor was bad news from the beginning...she had such a bad attitude and didn't seem to treat anybody with respect. I for one am glad she is gone and I'm so thrilled with your promotion...way to go Brad!
Brad- love LOVE you! You are THE reason I watch this show. Please don't lose your fabulous preppy bow tie glasses short shorts wearing self though. Nothing makes me smile like a prep in a bow tie!!
Brad--I had to swallow hard before coming back to watch the show again--I am totally not a fashion type, and Rachel is just so hard to take, even for reality tv-but you make it worth it. You are graceful under pressure, kind, and appear to be a truly decent person--increasingly rare qualities. Your playful nature is a real delight. Love the new hot bod too, though I would hate to see you become one of the plastics. Please stay real. You seem like a gem of a guy--hope you are happy to boot inside of that tv!
Brad sorry that Taylor's insecurity rubbed off on you. She was just threatened. YOU have talent my friend and stay true!!!
Brad, J' adore! You are amazing. Such a beautiful person. I love watching all of you. Keep up the great work. Wishing you that all good things come your way.
Brad, You are the coolest gay man I have ever seen and I know alot of them. Your fashion sense is amazing and Rachel is lucky to have you on her team. I love the show and you make it so much more interesting and hilarious.
I just started watching the show and it is great and you are the part of the show that makes it so much fun to watch.
No one misses Taylor and you are the person to fill her high-heels, so good luck and keep us laughing.
Brad, You are the funniest guy I have seen in years. Ashley is so lucky to work for you. Sense of humor is one the the most important traits to me and you have it.
Keep making me laugh and I look forward to seeing you on the show. You ROCK!
I'm a big fan of the show, I think you and Rachel are very cool and if I ever win the lottery I hope team Zoe gives me a fashion makeover.
Could you and Rachel please stop using the word "TRANNY" it is very disrespectful and degrading, I'm a post-op transwoman, think about it when someone says "oh that tranny over there or is she a tranny" I'm no longer a person, now I'm a thing....A tranny. Last night Rachel said it twice about her new "Tranny shoes" with "Tranny heels". Let me educate you both a post-op transsexual or a Transgender women does not dress like a drag queen or prostitute's. and what hurts even more is your part of the LGBT community...Using that word, so shame on you.
