Rachel Zoe

Rachel doesn't miss the irony of having her first cover shoot while she's pregnant, but she celebrates the fun parts of her job.

on Oct 11, 20110

So, the Elle shoot went great this week -- Jeremiah proved himself as a more than capable styling assistant -- I guess it was kind of his first test. I love having Joey with me on set, he is constantly making me laugh, and I can always count on his honest opinion. The whole day was so much fun! The accessories that were pulled for this shoot were kind of insane. Elle seriously hooked it up. There were so many incredible pieces which made it a difficult edit, I wanted to use everything! Every look was incredible -- from the Marc Jacobs knit with the big floppy hat to the final look with the bright orange Balenciaga bathing suit -- so major. Styling an editorial is one of the best parts of my job -- it’s kind of like playing dress up. It was especially difficult this time around though, at nine months pregnant, constantly trying to tweak the model, adjust the look, fix a shoe strap, etc. Thank goodness I had Jordan, Joey, and Jeremiah.

Hi Rach! First off #RZP4 is so major. I live for every Tuesday night when I get my ever-so-needed dose of Zoe! My dream is to work with you and for you someday! You and the team are everything! The above comments about Joey are so heartbreaking! I absolutely love him! How could anyone say differently! It just proves how ignorant people can act, they don't even know the poor guy! He is so cute, and kind and way fun! I have no idea what they are talking about! Jere is very sweet too, but I respect your guy's decision. WOW people can be so rude regarding the above comments. If i were Jere, I would just be thankful to have gotten the opportunity to work for such a legendary brand. I would die for that position and I think the way people are reacting/commenting is just hurtful!

I hope you read these and this one in particular! xoxoxoxo give skyler and rodg and joey kisses!

MY QUESTION IS WAS JEREMIAH PAID EXTRA FOR DOING YOUR HOUSE? EVEN AFTER HE WAS FIRED HE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO COME BACK AND DO YOUR NURSERY FOR YOU WHEN THE BABY COME HOME, DID YOU PAY HIM FOR THAT WORK OR WAS IT ANOTHER FREE JOB. THIS SHOULD MAKE YOU KNOW WHO YOUR TRUE FRIEND ARE. JOEY NEVER GAVE JEREMIAH A CHANCE AND ALWAYS PUT HIM DOWN AND MADE HIM FEEL NOTHING HE DONE WOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU. AND AS FOR JOEY'S STYLING JOB ON TONIGHTS SHOW, IT WAS THE SALES LADY THAT PICKED OUT THE DRESS THAT YOU CLIENT CHOOSE AND WORE HER OWN SHOES, SHE DIDN'T LIKE JOEY'S CHOICES.

Jeremiah should go work with Jeff Lewis!

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the treatment of Jeremiah was appalling and sickening. To think that I actually felt bad for Rachel first when Taylor left and then even moreso when Brad went on his way. I now understand why both of them left! Taylor and Brad were both promised many things by Rachel and Rodger and then all blame was put on them when they left the show. Obviously they had good reason to leave! If either of their goals had been to simply become (in)famous, then both of them would have stayed on the show and kept their mouths shut. Obviously fame wasn't as important to either Brad or Taylor than it is to Rachel and Rodger. Then comes Jeremiah who was treated like a turd and was flushed away without a second thought by Rachel and Rodger. Jeremiah designed and decorated their home for pennies and instead of being rewarded for doing a terrific job in an unbelievably short amount of time, he was thrown to the street like a piece of garbage. I feel no need to watch this show any longer and I have a belated "I'm sorry!" to Taylor and Brad for thinking that they were the villains when in fact both of them were smart enough to leave and keep some of their sanity.

OMG, Watching a rerun and Joey is so intensely annoying I had to change the channel. Big mistake putting him on the show. The way he treated Jeremiah was awful and watching him on your show is like nails on a chalkboard. I realize you have a close relationship with him but did you even watch the show and see how he was? Is that what he's really like? You also made Jeremiah feel like crap with your "oh Joey, I love you Joey, what would I do without you Joey?" For such a smart, talented woman you sure don't know the difference between real friends, loyalty and ass kissers just riding on your fame. Wake up Zoe! No wonder people walk out on you. You don't appreciate them unless their kissing your butt.

Nooo. I'm a little behind on the show but when I found out about the firing of Jeremiah I was outraged. That pompus, arrogant Joey with his nose up Zoey's ass probably had something to do with it because he was jealous of Jeremiah and didn't want her to bond with him. Joey is so unlikeable and mean. I'm saddened and will miss Jeremiah. I don't think I can in good faith, watch a program who's "stars" are so uncaring, so unfeeling and just use people and throw them away.

Get rid of Joey!! No one can stand him! He is creepy, a snake, a kiss ass, manipulative, annoying, and unbearable to watch. He has no taste and is not a stylist. I just cannot stand him and as much as I love you, Joey brings you down and makes you look foolish. I hope you realize that Joey should stick to hair, makeup and minimal tv time before it's too late!

What is more expensive paying an assistant stylist a salary for a month or hiring an interior designer to do your home in 15 days? This really comes off as a planned move to get cheap labor. For someone who started the show complaining about feeling used, you surely demonstrate how you use others. Glad Joey showed how dedicated a worker he was taking pictures between his legs of you. The one running back and forth and pulling items and adjusting the model was let go? Next photo shoot should be fun, will Joey work just as hard or will he double hi efforts and take pictures of you while hanging upside down while another lackey works with the model?

Dear Rachel I feel that you did the right thing, by letting jere go. You let other people in your business and they turn on you. just hire temp. empolyees and call them back if you want, when you want. Let them know that from the start.I think these new people you hire wants to be on tv off of you. take care of your beautiful new son and have a great life.

So disappointed in you. Jeremiah was giving you 150% and you let him go. Then you had Rodger do the dirty work.

Rachel - Love your show and the clothes, especially the vintage and your new collection. However, I am surprised that you cannot see through Joey who is totally a__kissing. I would have left him in New York. Am also sorry to see Jeramiah go. He was an asset to you - and was willing to be trained and given half a chance. Joey dissed him - out of the two you should have let Joey go - surely there are makup artists and hairdressers in LA better than him. Anyway, your love of fashion and your mentioning you were a Virgo, I looked up your birthdate, and it is the same as mine, Sept.1, although I am much older than you. Anyway, please keep your show amusing and don't give so much time to Joey if you decide to keep him. He is horrible! Best wishes.

Rachel: you have lost a lot of fans by firing Jeremiah. He worked so hard getting your house ready...can you see Joey doing that, NO. Joey said things you want to hear and is a master of brown nosing. Jeremiah actually worked. This is the worse decision you and Roger made so far....if you don't think he can do the job, don't hire him, but of course you folks waited until the home at the new house is finished. That is called "using" a person. Totally uncool. I felt sick, thought you have more integrity than that, just remember that there is Karma! You reap what you sow.

I agree with everyone else. Love you Zoe! Love your show! But I have to agree that Joey is someone you have to watch out for and hopefully Jeremiah will be back in the next season. I think he can be a better friend to the family than Joey.

This was one of the very few shows that I watched and always looked forward to watching. This season with Joey joining the show on a full time level was hard to watch; he is not genuine and very hard to watch. I still watched the show because your so talented and was also looking forward what Jeremiah had to offer your company. He seems like a very talented person. He did such a fabulous job on your house and I am sure he would've done equally as a great job if he was given the opportunity styling. I am very disappointed at the way you and Roger behaved. If you had hired him to just decorate your house that should have been clear from the start. Very shady; I thought you had more style than that. I guess I will not be watching RZ anymore:(.

I'm so sorry to Jeremiah go. He's more talented and much nicer than "Joey". It's official. This show is just about superficial crap.

I know Joey makes Rachael laugh, but he comes off as a bit mean-spirited, unprofessional and foolish and not really good for business or for Rachael. She'll wake up to his mendacity someday.

I can't believe that Jerimiah got let go! It is rare to see a young person today with that kind of work ethic. Rachel complains about people leaving her, then when she gets someone so willing to learn and work hard, she lets him go. Joey on the other hand may be a friend, but he is so phony and threw Jerimiah under the bus every chance he got. I am a big Rachel fan, always have been, but today I am a little less of a fan.

i think rachel needs to get two things straightened in her life... you have to keep business and pleasure separate. I understand that she loves her friend Joey but he is a terrible stylist and she keeps favoring him over Jeremiah who really does try his best at everything she gives him. All Joey does is makes jokes with her. Jeremiah deserved to goto the Kim Kardashian shoot, not Joey. The fact that she did not even send Jeremiah e-mails about the upcoming shoot and only Joey was in the loop...it is truly ridiculous. Joey is your hairdresser and a friend, NOT the person you hired to be your protege stylist....and Joey constantly flaunts it in Jeremiah's face that he could do no wrong...he is a meanie... These few episodes made me truly dislike Joey (yes i get it, you are her BFF...so what? you are a horrible stylist with no taste...remember the horrible shoes he picked out? ) and truly dislike rachel's way of doing business...she is completely irresponsible...she hired jeremiah when she had no intention of training him(which i totally agreed with Roger...she should stop hiring people because she likes them)...made him sit out photo shoots and never gave him a chance....and then he was fired????

Yes, and it shows how little class they have. Why didn't they hire him just to decorate their house?

How could fire that new guy that just decorated your house to perfection????? Why didn't you just hire him for that job? I was mortified at the lack of class that was shown and regard for his feelings throughout this entire season. You never gave him a chance to style. No wonder Brad and Taylor left. I was intrigued by you, despite thinking you needed a Xanax every 20 minutes. Your life is so hard with drivers, your sister flying across country and putting her life on hold, getting the Tiffany's store to bring you all their "treasures", having someone decorate your house, etc. You don't need a Channel bag to bring the drama. You are the DRAMA. Do you ever think, what about the starving kids in the horn of Africa???? I will Kim K. buy some boobs. And you look like the Olsen twins mother.

Rachel,

I love your show. You are a great sylist and I love your new collection. Your show is one of the best Bravo shows on. But now I have a beef with you on how Jeremiah was treated by you AND Rodger. I think he was totally mislead on what he would be doing in the company. I really don't think neither you or Rodger knew how to use his talent(s).

If you are going to get to know someone and bring them into your inner circle you have to spend time with them (just 10 minutes a day) and show them how your world works. I understand you were pregnant. BUT it's your company and what I saw reflected poorly on you and Rodger. I don't think the two of you looked past Joey. Everything out of your mouth was Joey, Joey, Joey.

I agree with you now that Jeremiah is wasting his time at your company. He needs to go work for Jeff Lewis. I think he would get more appreciation and recognition working for Jeff. You guys never even gave Jeremiah a chance. He wanted to do more and get involved, but the only talent you and Rodger wanted to see was how well he could put your home together. I AM SO VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE BOTH OF YOU.....

I felt that Jeremiah was used by Rachel. I think she likes people that kiss her ass, and if you don't then you are out of there. I thought her first assistant that left did not kiss her ass, she did all the work and never got any approval. I felt that she should have left and started her own things she was not going any where in her career with R.Z. Brad kiss her ass and got to go to shows and paris and did everything. I just feel her and her husband use people, and that is howI see it from watching the show. I won't anymore!! Rodger fired him and then was an ass on top of it. I see why her employees leave is like a revolving door.

Rachel; I am hopefull you keep Jeremiah as he is the most honest and sincere not at all fake like Joey. You feel badley about Brad and what he did to you, but you are doing the same thing to Jeremiah. You should of thought this through before you hired him not let him go just because you won't be around for a few month. Pay Joey to be your friend because he isn't the best stylist and certainly doesn't have the drive to work untill the job is done. Jeremiah has the work ethic and the taste level to be better than Brad and Joey.

Typical Rachel, if you ignore something unpleasant, maybe it will go away. Like when you made Brad and Taylor decide who would get to go to Paris, so you wouldn't have to be the bad guy. Not one word about Jeremiah and why he was fired. Make Rodger do the dirty work so you don't have to, I guess.

I will post the same thing I posted on Rodgers page, in the hopes it makes it to the blogs. I agree with David Jiron, I think Jeremiah was hired under false pretenses. Hiring him as a "stylist" to have him decorate Rachel's house and then let him go seems rude and pretentious. The expectations set upon him were unrealistic, yet he went above and beyond and made Rachel and Roger's house a home for them before they ever stepped foot inside. I feel once again Bravo has let their reality stars let fame go to their head.

Rachel Zoe's ego is expanding with her brand! And it must be fun to play with all those expensive outfits and jewellery and shoes without having to pay for any of it! I used to love watching the show and after Jeremiah's firing I am disgusted!

how could you write your blog without any reference to Jerimiah? He worked his ass off for you and your company. I don't fault you for firing him if you needed to do that, but you don't even acknowledge his departure? ice cold...

Was Jeremiah paid for styling Rachel's new home or was he just used and thrown away like the others that came before him! It was so hurtful of Rachel to constantly praise Joey in front of Jeremiah and totally treat him as if he was invisible and why was he excluded from the e-mails if her intention was for him to learn and grow! I felt that Joey was threatened by Jeremiah and played up to Rachel all along going the extra mile to show Jeremiah that only he was part of Rachel's inner circle - poor Jeremiah - he was taken advantage of - he should count his blessings he is not Rachel's slave anymore and follows his true path and talent! Best of luck Jeremiah - sorry to see you go - you have amazing talent for styling homes - that is yr calling!

How could you use Jeremiah to decorate a fab house for you then fire him. It makes you look bad I'm disgusted! I used to look up to you, good luck i can't watch your show anymore I don't believe in using people.

Hope you are resting as much as possible Rachel, you will be needing as much sleep as possible with a new baby in the house!

So sad to see Jeremiah is gone, please reconsider bringing him back after your maternity leave. He was a great addition to your show and the look of shock on his face was really disheartening.

Can I ask you a special favor Rachel? Is it possible that one of your assistants can purchase some real shoe racks for your studio? Really stresses me out to see ALL those beautiful shoes just lined up on the floor!

Rachel I think it's horrible the way you guys have treated Jeremiah. You kinda used him up like a snotty tissue and now you are throwing him out...You ought to be ashamed of yourself!!! and Rodger too. This guy single handedly furnitured and decorated your home and this is the thanks he gets. Wow cold hearted!! Joey is terrible to jeremiah as well...

Rachel, Congratulations on being a new Mom. With that said, I am very disappointed that you let Rodger throw Jeremiah under the bus. He did an exceptional job on your new home to prove how truly dedicated he was. He didn't fail at the styling part because you never gave him an opportunity to excel. Once you brought Joey in, who is totally annoying, Jeremiah was ignored.

Wishing you, Rodger, and your son a wonderful life. I was a dedicated fan but I want you to know that I will not be watching your show any more. Maybe someday you will realize that you should have kept Jeremiah and sent Joey back to New York.

I am furious! After 4 fabulous years of being a loyal Rachel fan, she allows Rodger to fire that incredibly talented and loyal Jeremiah. I may have to rethink my own loyalty to Ms. Zoe. Excuse me.but no one had the time to train him or at least allow him to lay out the business plan for a slow, measured approach to the eventual launch of a "home fashion" line. Jeremiah is brilliant, just look at what he did for your house Rachel. Bad decision all around.

This blog is shallow and nonresponsive to the episode. You just let Jeremiah go - you knew his credentials when you hired him - and you fail to mention him in this blog. In fact, you were too cowardly to fire him yourself. You can blame it on emotion, but you hired him based on emotion so fire him despite emotion. No one is saying you had to start a Rachel Zoe home division, but to let a man work his tail to the bone - sleeping on your floor and going on shoots where you flirted with your Joey assistant - was painful to watch. You treated Jeremiah like a second class employee and you should feel ashamed.
