Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe is said to be livid at the decision by Bravo to schedule Brad Goreski's show directly after hers according to sources this morning. As fashionistas will recall, Goreski was Zoe's beloved right-hand man and often appeared on her show.
The official word from her camp was that he opted to leave because he didn't want to be in the limelight so much and initially parted ways on good terms. However, Zoe is now singing a different tune and feels he was shady about branching out to be his own stylist and then securing his own reality series.
Zoe soon learned that Goreski secured one her favorite clients, Demi Moore, as his own upon setting up his own services.
"Of course within a week of us parting, he started pursuing our clients, going to all these events, and doing these things he said he wasn't interested in," said Zoe about Goerski in an episode of her series.
Rachel Zoe still holds a formidable clientele including the likes of Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Kate Beckinsale, Debra Messing, Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, Joy Bryant, Molly Sims, Beau Garett, Eva Mendes, Paula Patton, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, and Miley Cyrus.
Goerski has denied the allegations of client snatching.
"That's not the truth, and she knows that's not the truth," said Goerski to media sources. "I didn't even say goodbye to a lot of her clients because I didn't want anything to be misconstrued as me soliciting anybody."
Industry sources claim that Zoe is a household name whereas Goerski is still a relatively unknown player on the national stage. Of course, Zoe may also be upset because it is not uncommon for a strong show to be used as lure to help pull in viewers for a relatively newer series.
Both series air on Bravo:
