The Oscars went off without one glitch, aside from Demi's dress not being ready until minutes before she left for the red carpet. What we did discover was that we really only need two assistants and since Jordan had been working for Rachel for two years already, that it was only natural that she would become the second assistant. It was nothing against Ashley. We love her and she will always have a place at Rachel Zoe Inc. The truth of the matter is that after the oscars we slowed down a bit and there wasn't enough work to keep three people busy. We asked Ashley to come back in June when I was getting ready to go on a world tour, but she was already booked on another job.
Ashley has now landed a job with a great stylist and is working with some super chic clients. We are still friends and talk on the phone and see each other socially. There is NO drama. She is a hard worker, a great assistant, and a super sweet person with impeccable personal style ... and great hair.
Johnny Weir ... what is there to say about an Olympic figure skater who constantly pushes the boundaries of fashion on the ice and off? It was such a pleasure getting to work with him over the Oscars. He is so sweet, generous of spirit, and funny. As you can see in the episode we had a lot of fun, which is the way it should be and usually is. When he called me while I was watching the Oscars with Rachel I was more than happy to run down to the studio to grab some more jacket options for him. What a nightmare! Can you imagine being seated at a table with someone who was wearing the exact same outfit as you? Wowza! I am happy to say the situation was fixed, and Johnny and I have remained friends ever since. I consider him one of my "sisters." Love you, Johnny.
You pulled it off yet again Brad!! You rock it out every time!! You and Rachel are just the best .....ever, hands down. Love love love seeing Johnny!
Hi Brad, I have got to tell you that I lOVE FASHION! I purposefully did not watch the 1st season of Rachel Zoe because I didn't want to get addicted to another show about fashion. However, I watched the show when you guys were at the Orscar De La Renta Show, and I was hooked. OH MY GOD, the clothes were so beautiful. I'm so jealous you got to see a Dsquared2 show live. Love it, love it, love it!
I'm sorry to Ashley go! She really looked like a great addition, but if there is nothing for her to do then the best thing is to cut her loose and find work elsewhere. Johnny!!! O M G!
LOVE THE SHOW! I love everything rachel wears and brad, would love to find the sweater that is long in the front and short in the back. LOVE IT! Any ways i could find it, with a limited budget, please let me know. Keep the show going, i am addicted to it. Ps: love Rodger too!! hang in there we are all hoping rachel gets pregnant and you would make such beautiful babies.
Love your positive outlook and wonderful personality. You're the reason I got hooked this season, you bring balance to Rachel and all the fashion drama.
I LOVE this show. I am a loyal fan of Regis and Kelly. Rachel was on their show earlier this year. Kelly does a Fashion Finder on the show’s website each day. Rachel was on it. I was hooked from there. I bought all the previous seasons on iTunes and enjoyed them all. I am so happy to read your full report on Ashley. It appeared on last night's show that you guys fired her because she was sick. T.V. likes drama for ratings and I figured that you guys would not do that to her. I am glad that my suspicions were verified. I wish there were more episodes. I am addicted to fashion and just live vicariously through the show. Thanks so much for much needed escape from the daily grind. Sheila in Jacksonville, Florida
Hey Brad Just wanted to tell you how glad I am that you are still with Rachel I never ever cared for taylor. She complained so much all the time she was worse than a 2 year old toddler. She B*tched Gripped and moaned Enough was enough OH and she was MEAN !!!! She treated you like crap and you were doing a great job. I think you are exactly what Rachel Zoe needs you seem to have great karma and your sweet and Loyal you and rach are a perfect fit. Love the show & love you guys....
Brad, if I were a man, I would dress like you! Such great style. I tune in just to see what you're wearing, no lie. LOVE the grey striped blazer!! YOU could have your own show...no offense, Rachel.
Well I really thought that without Taylor the drama would be less severe but really, did you have to say "fired" when you spoke to Ashley when she was sick? Please tell me it was the editing and not you being an insensitive jackass. I see from your blog that Ashley was only temporary and that she now has another job, but to say "fired" on the phone is the height of unprofessionalism .. it sounds like something Taylor would do ... are you channeling her now? Please stop it.
Also, I just don't get how you and Rachel can think that if you don't find dresses for two clients that they will go the event naked. Do you really expect me to believe they don't have a thing to wear in their huge walk-in closets? Really ... remember Sharon Stone? I'm sure those two ladies have ample clothes they can wear to the awards ceremony that no one has seen them in or remembers seeing them in.
And ... what's the big deal about Johnny Weir wearing the same outfit as someone else .. geez ... it's really not the end of the world and if it is .. god help us all.
You and Rachel really need to get some perspective on what's really important ... clothes should really be at the bottom of the list.
Brad, You are so adoreable and have the greatest style-sense I have seen for a guy. I have loved Johnny W for ages and to see you two together was priceless. As hard as the work is, you do have a dream job. Do you have any aspirations to design? Keep up the good work .....!
Brad - you are my guilty pleasure. I just can't get enough of you. I am so happy so see what an involved role you have in the company now. I adore Rachel - but really - when do we get to see "The Brad Goreski Project"?!? Kate
Brad, I love Rachael, but we watch the show for you. I love your look and your legs (hello)I live In Sydney,I am Australia's top hairstylist and we have our own show airing soon(not a series...will get there.) Come to Sydney for Mardi Gras and we will look after you, Love the show, Brad XXXX
YAY BRAD! You are amazing! btw i was at Fashion's night out and i missed you and rachel! i went to the Piperlime store but there was a huge crowd and i couldn't even see any of you! i just wanted to let you know that you are amazing!!!
I am glad you had a good time in Italy. The shows looked wonderful and there were so many that I wish I could wear. Enjoy the show.
Last season, I was a fan of yours and felt bad for you around Taylor. To be honest though, you're more stress to watch. You seem to LOVE delivering bad news. As a "Style Director" and basically an assistant to Rachel, you should try assessing situations rather than deliver bad news and then wait for her to freak and then you try to handle it. I agree with the girl who was saying it was unprofessional of you to add "Fired" when you got off the phone to Ashley. Would you guys have preferred she show up to work and make all of you sick so you couldn't style anyone? Grow up, Brad. Less Drama.
Brad, i can not think of anybody more perfect for Rachel's team than you. So glad Taylor is gone, and you proved yourself many times over to make the work done.You do an excellent job, it comes natural to you, and you make Rachel (and us viewers laugh) which makes a workplace so much more at ease. I am happy to see you and Rodger had a conversation, clearing the air. And it really warms my heart that you understand his concerns. Rachel could not ask for a better executive director than you. Love, Russian Girl
I think you are a class act. You are genuinely nice, intelligent, passionate and humble. Thank goodness that you were able to bear the brunt of Taylor's nastiness and hang on! The show is so much better, and I hope you stay the same as you did from the beginning of the show. I understand that everyone evolves; however, since this is Hollywood, please keep your original character and being -- what a breath of fresh air!
You pulled off the shoot with class! BRAVO! I'm not missing Taylor one bit!
P.S. Set Rachel and Rodger up with Bethenny and Jason Hoppy from BGM to see if that would help Rachel make up her mind about having a baby, career, husband and tv show!
Brad - I was always pulling for you last season... you are really coming into your own! Great job. Keep it up.
Brad you're very talented, but when you talk you sound like Rachel! When you first came to the show you talked differently. It's ok to be you...
I am glad that Taylor is gone. There is a much more positive vibe. I love the show and you bring additional fun to it.
You are doing great BRAD. You are my bestest BRAVO imaginary friend (HA!!!) and I am prouud of you boy. Yes, from Arkansas.
Brad, I just have to tell you that my 3 month old loves you. It all started when her and I were watching the show with you and Johnny. She was laughing out loud. I couldn't believe it! Now every time she sees you on TV she starts laughing and talking to the TV. I'm not really sure why she like you so much, but you now have the youngest fan ever!!!
How cute were you at the early meeting with your boss...in bed....in robes and pajamas ? So cute and FUNNY ! You have great sense of humor and you bring liveliness to the show. Rock on ! Hugs, Russian Girl
BRAD YOUR A SUPER STYLE DIRECTOR FOR RACHEL! Brad love to see what you would do with your own company! go boy!
Watching Season 1 on DVD i must tell you - THANK GOD you made through that craziness with moody Taylor. Poor guy... What worked in your favor is your patience and sense of humor ! And of course having a great sense of style doesn't hurt either *wink*
Rock on ! Russian Girl
Brad, just saw the news that you're leaving RC Inc. Hate to see you go, you are a HOOT! Wish you all the best, but will miss you beyond belief!
Brad,i am SO sad you are leaving Zoe team !!!!!! If Rachel decides to do another season, i will miss you SO MUCH ! You were the soul of Rachel Zoe Project, you made us laugh, you made us cry, you made us admire your style. I hope that all you plan for the future come true, that you soar and concur after you spread your wings ...i want you to know YOU WILL BE MISSED ! I don't know how, but keep us updated about your progress in fashion world. If things don't work out when you are on your own (hope they will), Rachel will take you back, right ? *wink*
Sad Russian Girl :-(
Brad - First, you are amazing! Second, I need that Jacket/Sweater combo with the "D"on it that you wore when you were in Milan. Can you please share the info on where I can get it.? Thanks again! You are the BEST! Shawn
Brad love you on the show, I think you should have been stronger from day one and stud up to taylor from the begining and you would of never had any problem with here. Ps where can I find that pair of black shoe's with the studs along the side they were cooooool.
Brad, I liked you when you were a part of Rachel's team but you had to go and back stab her. I am sooooooo disappointed that you are getting your own show and I will make sure that none of my friends who watch Rachel even give your show a glance. Without Rachel, you can't carry a show.
Best of luck with the work that you tried to steal from Rachel,
