Bravotv.com: How does it feel now that the season is coming to a close?
Rachel Zoe: It's so sad. I'm getting so many emails today saying, "I'm so sad, don't let it end!" And before I forget, there was one person who commented on my blog last week - a girl who had survived Hurricane Katrina. She wanted a career in fashion and then she lost everything during Katrina. She said she lost her passion, but that watching the show made her want to follow her dream again. Her name was Maggie Greenbaum. She says, "I just wanted to say thank you. I was a fashion major in college and was completely in love with it and had such high goals for myself. I am from New Orleans and during Katrina I lost my home and my life in 10 feet of water. I completely lost myself and what I was passionate about. Watching your show reminded me of what I loved so much and who I was. So thank you for reminding me of what I love so much and that you have to push yourself to get where you want to be." I just wanted to tell her that her comment brought tears to my eyes. If this show is helping her to realize her dream after experiencing unfathomable tragedy, then the show was worth doing for that reason alone. Maggie, thank you so much for watching and thank you for your support. Everyone should have a dream and the biggest challenge is making that dream come true. I wish love and luck to you and your family. My eyes are literally filled right now. When I read that, I was just blown away.
So this so off subject lol, but could you please give Patti Stanger from "the Million dollar Match maker" fashion tips. She has fabulous shoes but her hair and clothing kills me.
I simply LOVE you and your show! Never take notice in the bad things written about you in the press, real people don't agree with that.
You are great at what you do, keep going strong.
Wish you and Rodger all the best!

Before I watched your show, I would never imagine you to be such a great person like that. You're such a cool boss , fun person to be around & very real. I'd love to watch a second season if there is one. Dont end the show pls. I really love fashion thats why I enjoy every min of the show
You are so inspiring to me that it makes me proud and excited to be working in the fashion business. I can't get enough of your show and I can't wait for the second season! Please let there be more than 6 episodes, because 6 definitely isn't enough. I think you have such amazing style and your passion for fashion is infectious.
Keep up the amazing work you are doing and write a second book!
Also, not sure if you dressed Anne Hathaway at the Oscars this year but she looked gorgeous.
Hi I write from Italy I want to say to rachel zoe
1)when I read that you're style is influneced from how you're mother dressed,I found it amazing.Really.I read all that article and was so moving.Make me wanna have my mum here with me and hear her smell. I live in london and she is in Italy.she has this good smell,and I never noticed this but she influenced my stile.Truly.The hippie hairs,the 60's dress open on the back,the belts ,the blazer,the flowers in the hair I never noticed cause now she dresses very office,and bourgeoise,but just listening her voice,smile and seeing her attitude always made her say "jesus.You dress like I did!" and my favourite happen to be a fiorucci blu long dress with white flowers on of 1975,that she wanted to throw away ,of when she was 15.I still wear it on summer,and she says im quite dramatic with that .and what i really love about it is that has an end with a white laces.And She did that adjustement. I will wear it for ever thank you vintage is up and I can around with my mum dress without feeling out of tone,but on the opposite very cool I don't know how people can say you'e anorexic You are so funny and lively ,the opposite of poeple having a serious disease I watch some of your show,and by the way I never write this stuff,and i am strongly against all that mood BUT you are really inspirational.You make me wanna go just for my dream without losing time in any other things.If you're so lucky o know what you want,you should just go for it
I love the show and check on the website every week to see if there is another season coming soon. Please I love the show.
I love love love this show! I love Taylor's personality she cracks me up and Rachel - you are so incredibly charming and stylish - I absolutely can not believe how beautiful you are! I have told all of my friends and family about this show- I hope there is another season soon it is so entertaining and it takes me away from the stress of real life!
DEar Rachel, I love your show and everyone on it. i have a fashion degree, am not in that field anymore, so your show is my guilty pleasure!!!! I wish you all the luck in the world, you are such a talent, be proud of all you have done!!!! You literally took that line from the theme to "Fame" "Take your passion and make it happen" You sure did!!!!! Season two is where????????
When is season 2 coming??? I need to watch it, the show was unbelievable! i keep watching season one over and over again, cuz Rachel is my hero. She shows that you can do anything you want, and you should take every oppurtunity to do so!
I love it
I really enjoyed your show, and being able to go to the fashion shows with you thru your show was amazing. PLEASE come back for another season.
When is a new Rachael Zoe seson going to start?
Rachel, I saw you in a magazine and OMG please gain some weight, you were little in the show and beautiful, tHE MAGAZINE I just read you looked old and drawn and you could see all your bones YUK.
Good Luck Rachael. See you Soon,

I thought the first season was a fashion lovers wet dream.. I absolutely adored it... you're style reminded me so much of my grandmothers, she wore lots of fur, mink coats and had impeccable taste, she passed away four years ago but I still think of her all the time, I think you're a fabolous inspiration for people like me who come fall will be a fashion student. Thank you for never being afraid to be yourself and I can't wait for season 2!
love it love it love it....so wicked im from Australia and watching has helped me form my own style (and reading your book). i hope season 2 is shown in OZ. there are soo many fashion blunders down here. and when i return to LA and NYC i cant wait to get my hands on some of your own branded designs!!!
Just wanted to add my 2¢: before the show, all I knew about Rachel Zoe was what I read on the gossip blogs, most of which is (honesty moment) kinda negative & schaudenfreude-y, but one night I decided to tune in, and I've been won over to Team Zoe!
I loved it! The stressful parts, the shopping parts, the sweet parts like the anniversary dinner with Rodger, even when Rodger freaks because you've spent a bundle on vintage clothing during NY Fashion Week (been there, albeit on a MUCH smaller scale...) I applaud your ballsiness in allowing the reality-show cameras to invade so much of your life, and hope to see more episodes!
TEAM SEASON 2! :)
Rachel Zoe, I think you are fab.u.lous the way you approach style is so artistic and original...i hope that through all the stressful, wild, chaotic, sprawls you can see how much your work means...to not only the fashion world but to the people...you have made people see fashion in a new way...i love your fresh flavour, inspired by vintage pieces...let your fashion spirit run free...and keep your show on tv! xo ;) Love it!
Hi Rachel, I live in Australia and we are up to episode three next week...cant wait!! Just wanted to let you know how much I LOVE your show. To be honest we dont know alot about you here but I wish you were in our local mags. I have been reading your blogs and noticed how season 1 is finished god I hope your back for another series. Even after watching only 2 episodes I am hooked and I really looked forward to Wednesday nights. I love getting lost in your world and after watching you believe that I can achieve anything!! Thankyou so much and good luck for your furure...
OMG WHO DOESN'T LOVE RACHEL ZOE!!!!!
I live in Australia and I ALWAYS tune into your show!
It's amazing how you can create such beautiful looks for so many people and your knowledge of wats guna look good or bad!!!
I love watching how funny you are with Rodger and how you can obviously twist situations into your favour :) he's a real laugh! you're so lucky to have a man like him by your side!
Can't wait for the 2nd season to come out :)
Love the show lady! I've been wondering, my lil memory lapsed on me, what oh so amazing female designers did you take your sister to to find her wedding gown. I died when i saw the choices! As i can tell from the Show, you're extremely busy busy busy, but I'm getting married soon, and as you know, the dress has to be perfect! Thanks for taking the time to read this and respond if you can...you're amazing at what you do and wish you all the best (and a lil vacation), IF YOU CAN EVER FIT IT IN! xo ~kat~
Hi Rachel, I saw every episode of the show and loved every single moment! I havent seen any commercials for the next season. Will your show continue? I truly hope so, everyone on the show is wonderful! God Bless and I will keep track of the blogs.
RACHEL you are hilarious and totally bananas! I hope you come out with a 2nd season, filled with Marc, fashion shows, and more of those AWESOME vintage shops...could you post the address of the one you went too in the city? thanks! you are amazing and look amazing! keep up your coolness style girl!
Are you kidding me with this show???? I have never seen more self-absorbed, self-obsessed, affected and ridiculous people!!! The fashion and entertainment industry NEEDS to get OVER ITSELF!!! I am sick to death of all of these "self-important" people with no depth or substance; all superficial! What would happen to them when the cameras are gone????? OMG! Then What?????
I absolutely love this show. It really shows what fashion is all about. I have always loved fashion but this show gave me the push I needed to go after my dreams. I really there is a second season! Best of luck Rachel!.
Dear Rachel, I really enjoyed your show. I'm not very fashion forward and I wouln't consider myself incredibly stylish but I got great entertainment value and I hope a few tips and inspiration to eshew the why bother attitude and wear mascara and a bit of a heel to the grocery store. I think one of my favorite bits was the shopping with sister from Florida. That made stlye an achievable goal for us ordinary mortals. Thanks Rachel, love the bags, love the shoes, love the jewels, love the show. Wish I could afford your services. Kate
I love your fashion sense and I love even more that you are a beautiful, smart, successful woman who's NOT a bitch. I've watched a couple of your shows with my little girl and are proud to show her a kind & accomplished woman who has risen to the top of her business by building people up around her, not tearing them down on her way up. You are great RZ! I die! LMF
I lover your style and would like to know if you have a website. I want to keep up with anything that you would like to tell us about style.
Team Zoe, Loved the show, and have been waiting anxiously for season 2!!! Will there be one? With fingers crossed, Christine
Hello Rachel: Saw your show and loved every minute, it was like I was there with you. I am in the same line of business and I can relate to all that you do! I was very impressed. Let's get together sometime, maybe during a show.
Hi Rachel -
You are constantly wearing fur! you must know where that fur comes from and how its made?! how do you justify wearing animals that are tortured so badly for their fur just so you can wear it as an accessory? As a women who specializes in finding the perfect outfit and perfect accessories, couldn't you find an alternative to the real animal furs you are currently wearing?! Wearing real fur is not a nessicity and if you are so talented in your profession, you should realize that fur is out... and also ... that more reasonable alternatives exist!!
rachel, i enjoyed watching your show! you are my fashion icon now! i really admire the way you handle stress and pressure ... with grace and style. you're not like other people i know who would really freak out and go ballistic.i'm really looking forward to watching the next season of your show which i'm so sure it will happen. you've done a great work in your previous season and you definitely made a huge impact on people who adore fashion so much! lots of love, nina
When I go through my closet and decide what to wear for the day, I always think first, "would Rachel wear this?" If the answer is yes, then I put it on! I keep looking, trying on and layering until I get it right. Thanks, Rachel!
-please take some time reading these:-) Hey rachel! uhm..im a 14 year old girl from philippines and i just want to say your'e such a strong woman. And I admire your'e deep passion in your field. The first time I watched your show I was totally addicted to it. and seeing your team that way (lol) its really crazy, but..despite of all those gossip about your diet and your clients, I wish I could help with just saying keep your heads up. Philippines is one of the poorest country in asia that's why Im losing my hopes of being a designer or just be a part of the fashion industry. But then I watched your show and you inspired me that dreaming and pursuing such a dream is not as impossible as it seems. I just want you to know that a woman like you inspires different people from all over the world. And thank you. Im so sincere when I said that.(LOL) thank you very much for being you. No one does it like you.
hi zoe. first of, congratulations on your success. i totally envy you....in a good way. so much that i would love to follow in your footsteps. i have been thnking about opening a clothing shop, and on the side do some styling for the local media. i don't know where to start. i am very scarred, but i'm ready and willing to give up my comfortable job and follow my dreams. any advice? yes, i love fashion!
Hi Rachel, I am a teenager, who is in love with your show! i admire you and your sense of fashion so much! you are one of my favorite roll models in life and one day hope to be in the fashion industry just like you:)
hi rachel, I love watching your show. I'm a law student here in the Philippines and although we have a different field, I get inspired from your show to do good and work hard to achieve my dreams.I really admire your passion in what you do. your show is not only about fashion it is also a show that inspires people to chase their dreams and be passionate about it. thank you so much for the inspiration. can't wait for the next season.
I was getting all set for my fashion fix of the week with Project Runway and The Rachel Zoe Project on tonight when I realised that season 1 finished last week! Shattered! Just read that season 2 will be screening in July but I'm guessing that is in the US. Hope they don't leave us waiting too long down under in Australia.
Rachel first of all,wow what energy you have, the stress the work you did amazing. I totally love your show i just wait in my living room for your show every Thursday nigh here in India and love it. Good Job. Please keep going on and why don't you make your Business Globally like here in India and Asia.
Rachel and her team Rock!!!
Wholly cow...you and the team are amazing. when will you strart your own line of products? We'd love to buy them!!!
Hi Rachel...I have only watched one show (watching another as I type) Love it & I think you are fabulous!
I watched a few episodes of the RZP for the first time this morning and wow.....how pathetic. Im always amazed at how these people lose sight of whats really important in life when they gain fame or get involved in the celebrity whirlwind. I hope Rachel watches this show so she can see how ridiculous she is. Stop saying "like" every other word and calling Molly Sims "Molls". ugh!
I'm sorry, but I don't think anyone could or would take you serious with an employee like Taylor. She is the devil. I don't care how well you know each other's temperment, you should NEVER in a million years talk to a superior the way she does. It just doesn't say much for you as a person. Get rid of her. She is just a horrible person. You can find someone else with MUCH more talent and who will respect you as an employer.
i just want to know if Rachel Zoe actually reads these emails cause i have hard time believing she is for real at all in the show or real life? i really love her and hope that she can prove to us that she is real life still even after the show is over! thanks for your time....rachael email me please....i luv u and your style send me something you bitch!! i am famous too...you just don't know who i really am...lol! guess...email me!!
I just recently watched your shows back to back for the first time. You seem to be a sensitive and caring person with your family and staff. I really enjoyed the show. Until I realized all the FUR you were wearing so proudly. OMG!!! Please tell us that they are fake FURS. I can't even imagine a women like yourself that is so beautiful wearing so many dead animals around your neck. Please tell me it isn't so, then I can rest easier.
I just wanted to say that this show is perhaps the best reality show that I've seen, simply because of it's content and what it has to offer. It provides insight to a life that the average person would never have to a profession that most people didn't know existed. Yet at the same time, it has shown how "real" you are, and not just a fake, staged, actress. I really do like how you are all in the style/fashion industry, yet you do not act like the stereotypical valley girl or Beverley Hills snob. You all are wonderful people, and I wish the world had more hard working individuals with hearts, like you.
RACHEL i am OBSESSED with the show. i really hope that you are able to make a second season. i bought the first one on itunes and i think im in love. your gorgeous and a role model for me. I have had dreams of being a stylist one day and watching you has really made me realize that if i put my mind to it, my dream really can come true. so thank you for everything and cant wait for the upcoming seasons!
Great great show. BTW saying Roger is/was a 'banker' is wearing thin - Rodg hasn't worked a day in his life. Hope you come back soon.
M completely in love with the show...its is ama..ha..zing..!! So what does one have to do to become your assistant???? I have always been in love with fashion and majored is fashion designing as well. I can never get enough of it. Watching your show has made me recollect of the lost wish to become a fashion stylist for celebs.....thanks
