'The Rachel Zoe Project': Brad and Taylor after the storm
Remember this scene from the first season of Bravo's "The Rachel Zoe Project"?
Rachel's assistants Taylor Jacobson and Brad Goreski find hundreds of thousands of dollars of couture soaking in their boss' suddenly flooded work studio. Taylor goes ballistic and orders Brad to start hauling the gowns elsewhere before they get water-damaged -- and before Rachel arrives.
But instead, Brad breaks down and starts bawling to Rachel, who in turn comforts him: “It’s not that bad,” she says. “It’s clothes. We’re not saving lives. … We all make mistakes. You don’t think Taylor’s made mistakes?”
Unfortunately for all, Taylor overhears it. “Rachel! You shouldn’t use me as an example to make Brad feel better!” she yells. “Maybe you should just have me as an employee -- or maybe you should just have Brad since he’s so phenomenal. Clearly he’s not, since today was a royal disaster. Or maybe Brad should stop crying and help me take this [stuff] out of the studio, but that‘s OK because I‘ll do it since I do everything around here.”
A year later, have the two resolved their differences? Sort of. Read all about it in today's interview with the feuding assistants.
