Rachel Zoe

Rachel explains her lack of a birth plan, her decision to take Joey on the shoot, and why she didn't want Rodg to go to Vegas.

on Sep 20, 20110

I'm getting more pregnant every day, and everyone in my life (especially Rodger and my sister, Pamela for instance) have been after me to really start thinking about a birth plan. Like I kept saying, "I wing things, so why not this too?" I was too afraid to over-think the birth, so Pam taking Rodger and I to meet a doula was supposed to put my mind at ease.

I can't believe the way Jeremiah has been treated. It's almost as if Rachel and hubby hired him to decorate their home in two weeks and then get rid of him. Very unethical and totally disrespectful! All I've heard this season is whine, whine, whine, whine. For two people who are supposed to love what they are doing they sure love to feel sorry for themselves. I loved the show when Brad was on there. I hate it since he has left. Joey is very manipulative. I'm done watching.

Used to love the Rachel Zoe show, but I'm into fashion and loved that aspect of the show. The addition of Joey has really driven the quality of the show down. He's both unprofessional and mean spirited. You can be one other other, not both. In fact, I wonder if it's a producing decision. Rachel and Rodger seem to both be whining a lot more this year. At least they both have talent.

Looking forward to the premiere of Fashion Hunters that might be more about fashion.

Yes I can see Jeremiah getting stabbed in the back by Joey. Joey is so full of himself. Watch your back Rachel because you may end up being hurt just like you were with what's his name. I can't even remember his name.

Rachel, I love you and your line. Fabulous! Do you find it difficult to deal with your husband's whining all the time? He seems like a kid who always needs attention and positive reinforcement. You must get very tired taking care of his needs.

Hi Rachel..love you, love the show...just a brief comment..looks like Joey is going to cause problems with Jeremiah...I hope before the season ends you kick Joey in the butt abd take him down afew pegs..you need team players and people surrounding you that support you and not their agenda...his goal is supporting himself and how you view him and not how to support " Team Rachel"....good luck. Trust people for what they do for you and not what they say to you....:))

Rachel, you are absolutely without a doubt my favorite person on Bravo TV! You live a life that only I've dreamed of. So excited about your new Clothing Line but I keep missing where it can be purchased. Hope I can afford it! I too had my one and only child, a boy at the age of 36. I was scared to death about Labor and Delivery and wouldn't even allow myself to start thinking about it until 2 weeks prior to his due date. I promise that you can't feel or see anything....Rodger will be able to see more of you than he ever wanted...so be prepared for that. I don't know the outcome of your experience yet but I'm sure its just fine. Please keep doing what you're doing.....and also could someone on your staff either Post or Re-Post where we can find your clothes! Thank you!

Rachel,

We think so alike -- women HAVE been birthing babies in fields or in their homes in the old days, (I didn't even know what a doula was and I've had two children) what plan do you really need? You crack me up! I love your show, your new line is fabulous, and I see a wonderful future for you and Rodger and baby Schuyler! I've purchased several of your pieces from QVC, which I love, and I can't wait to buy from you new line wherever they land. Please keep up the good work and get enough rest. By the way, you look gorgeous being pregnant and I think it's totally due to the weight gain, so please don't lose too much after the baby, because even my husband says you look really HOT!! and he's really picky!

Rachel...I simply adore you...your baby...and I think your hubby is hot hot hot...and this is coming from an old babe of 68 who watches your show every chance I get. I love the way you talk, the way you walk, adore everything about you and want you to know your baby and I share a name (the M)....and PS he is adorable. You are one of the luckiest women on the planet. Ignore the snide comments and mean girls....they are just jealous. You are wonderful..you are beautiful...just be you.

I am so glad that Joey is back. For those fair weather fans Joey has been around and been a friend to Rachel forever. I agree he should lay off of Jeremy a little but Jeremy has to earn the right to go on a shoot with Kim K. That is the shoot of a lifetime and longterm employees should have had the opportunity to go on Rachel's first job with her. How Exciting!! Jeremy has not proven himself on any job he has done so far and from the look of the next episode he appears to really screw up the furnishing of the home, but I will wait and give him a chance. Seeing as he is a furniture designer the house should be beautifully set up by the time Rachel and Roger want to move in. That is where he has experience.

I have to comment that the actions of PA (Joey) at the Kim Kardashian photo shoot was disrespectful to everyone involved with this episode, including the viewers. He's nasty, crude, unprepared and generally unprofessional. At one point during the show, he made a comment to Kim that even made her mouth drop. I saw the episode twice to confirm this; and sure enough, there he was in all his ignorant glory! To make matters worse, Zoe congratulated him on how well he behaved! Since time has passed since filming the new beginning of the fourth season, I hope she realized how bad he made her company look. Costuming is my profession of choice. Oscar winning movies, actors, directors, producers and costume designers are common place for me. If I or any of my other colleagues behaved like Joey, our careers would cease to exist because that behavior is not tolerated by most people in the entertainment industry.

1. I see a maj cat fight between Jeremiah & Joey. 2. Why would a hair & makeup artist move to become an assistant & stylist. Guess you're paying him $$$$$. 3. I predict Bravo will launch the Joey Show. Rachel will have a fit & feel betrayed.

Rachel-you looked so beautiful while you were pregnant. You are so pretty anyway that the pregnancy just enhanced your glow. Can't tell you what to do but another little one might be just what you need. I do think Joey is coming off as jealous of Jeremiah and trying to get into his head in a bad way. Trying to spook him about failing at the job. Joey is secure why can't he be more helpful to the new guy? Anyway, love the show. You all make me smile.

Rachel, loving the new season and watching how you are rolling with all the changes with the pregnancy and baby! Sooo happy for you and Rodger and your new, slightly bigger family :)

On a less fun note, the more episodes of this season I see, the more I realize that Joey is mean-spirited and nasty just for the sake of his own amusement. I am hoping that this is just bad editing and that someone who is so obviously a large part of your life really isn't this unpleasant of a person; some of the things he has said about others and the way he has acted so far this season have been really off-putting and snarky (and not in a fun way).

Rachel you should have taken Jeremiah with you if you want him to learn. Joey is just there for the cameras! Also Rodger needed some time to himself before the baby came. Think about it, if you are soo busy than he'll be the one with the baby most of the time. We don't get to see what Rodg does for your company. Maybe they should show it some time.

Rachel,

You're right...what "plan" do you need? You're having a baby not opening a clinic. You go to the hospital when it's time, do what the dr and nurses tell you and waaalaaa...come home with a beautiful new family member. It's not brain surgery, people have been doing it foreverrrrrrrrrrrrr. I thin you're a hoot and you wouldn't be you if you weren't going 100 miles an hour. Enjoy motherhood...it's the best : )

Love the show! Jeremiah is a great addition to the show. He is appeal is that he is so different from everyone you surround yourself with on the show. Joey is boring send him back to NYC.

Rachel - I hope it doesn't take all season for someone to put Joey in his place and I would love for it to be Jeremiah. Joey is so snarky and full of himself and I can't figure out exactly what talents he brings to your business. At Kim's shoot I saw him hand you a clothespin and adjust her boy shorts slightly. And yet you raved about how much help he was. Jeremiah is clearly harder working and less attention-seeking than Joey and I hope you open your eyes and realize it soon!

Rachel....you are so funny! I totally get you and your selection criteria for employing people...I agree that you have to like people. As for Joey & Jeremiah...I think Joey likes him...big time!!! I felt for you last night with Rodger wanting to go have fun in Vegas while you were soooo uncomfortable. You did look quite amazing during your pregnancy....I bet there's no more fashionable mama out there than you.....

Also just bought your Style A to Zoe...pretty awesome!

I love Jeremy! There is obvious tension from Joe towards Jeremy. That complication is headed for disaster. I forsee some sort of blow-up. I really hope she doesn't lose Jeremy or Joey doesn't push Jeremy out.
