While the nasty exit of assistant Taylor became a major plot point on Rachel Zoe’s reality sitcom, we’re told the splitting of ways between Zoe and Brad Goreski, her cute sidekick, was filled with daffodils and smiles. Not so!, according to professional pot stir-er Rob Shuter, who insists the turning point came at New York Fashion Week, where Rachel grew furious over everyone lauding over her No. 2.
Rumors that the fashion power pair were in trouble started circulating a few weeks during New York fashion week where Brad seemed to be welcomed more than Rachel. “Fashion week was definitely the turning point,” a friend of Rachel’s tells me. “Brad was sitting on the front row of every show and getting invited to as may events as his boss. However the final straw was when Brad appeared on the cover of The New York Times style section. Rachel hit the roof and reminded him he was her assistant and it was called ‘The Rachel Zoe’ show not the Brad Goreski show. That was the moment that the two of them were over.”
Oh, that Styles section piece? The one that explained the difference between a “look” and a “lewk”? It was penned by Ben Widdicombe, one of New York’s gossip gays, which means one of our own is to blame for Brad’s professional divorce! Horrors!
