Rachel Zoe and Brad Goreski
First, Taylor got the boot. Now, Brad is going solo. Will there be anyone else left to star in Rachel Zoe's highly addictive reality show The Rachel Zoe Project?
Should we expect nothing but pen-throwing feuds between Rachel and Rodger in the future? Perhaps.
Brad Goreski, better known as Zoe's stylish right hand, announced Wednesday that he would be leaving her company to strike out on his own, starting Friday.

"I love Rachel, and she's taught me everything I know," Goreski told People. "But there's a point where either I do it now, or I'll never know what it's like to spread my wings and soar." No word yet on his specific plans.
Goreski broke the news to Zoe a month ago, according to the magazine — and their goodbye was a lot more tearful than it was for Zoe's other former assistant, Taylor Jacobson. "We couldn't stop hugging and we couldn't stop crying," Zoe says of receiving the news. "He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, 'I'm here for you always.'"
"We have a relationship that's not normal," Zoe continues. "I jump into bed with him and wake him up, and we have these pow-wows, and he's like, 'Wow, I haven't brushed my teeth,'"

Does the loss of Goreski mean the end of The Rachel Zoe Project? Zoe indicated that the series would continue without him: "I don't want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky," she says. "No one's ever going to be Brad to me."
A rep for Bravo says the network had not yet made a decision as to whether it would bring the show back for a fourth season. Last season averaged a series-high 1.1 million total viewers, up 31 percent from Season 2.
