Rachel Zoe's Ex-Assistant Brad Goreski Speaks Out On Estrangement From His Former Boss
The fashionista flame war continues as Rachel Zoe's once-beloved former assistant, Brad Goreski accuses her of "unjust" behavior.
Some background: Goreski used to be the super-stylist and Hollywood Reporter cover girl's wingman on her Bravo reality show The Rachel Zoe Project. (He also worked in her L.A. office in real life, too.) Last year, Goreski left Zoe's growing empire to branch out on his own as a stylist. But, gasp, he took one of her A-list clients, Demi Moore, with him on his way out the door. Then Bravo gave him a fashion-focused reality series, called It's a Brad, Brad World, spinning off Zoe's star vehicle.
In a new teaser for the show, debuting Jan. 2, Goreski discussed his fallout with Zoe and how he's never met her baby son, Skyler, who's 9 months old. "We don't speak to each other," he said in the Bravo clip, via People.com. "I would love to be able to speak with her. I have not seen the baby because I have not been invited."
Last season on The Rachel Zoe Project, Zoe referenced Goreski's departure, claiming he told her and husband-slash-business partner Rodger Berman that he was departing to slow down a bit -- not to launch a solo career. "It's not the first time I've been used. I would say it's going to be the last time, though," she told the cameras in an episode that aired in September.
Meanwhile, Goreski would not elaborate on what led to his former boss' icy treatment. He said has "an idea" but believes "those reasons are unjust."
“I have conducted myself with honesty, with dignity and with grace,” Goreski added. “And I will continue to do so no matter what is said about me.”
