Brad Goreski on His Falling Out with Rachel Zoe

In the second part of our Media Beat interview with Brad Goreski, the up and coming stylist sets the record straight about his relationship with Rachel Zoe.

Unlike the somewhat messy way his departure was portrayed on Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, Goreski says that he actually gave his former boss and good friend two months notice.

“It’s strange that it turned into this whole thing, because for me it’s a very logical thing to assist somebody and then after a certain amount of time choose to leave and go off and do your own thing. And I think that’s really a natural progression,” the star of It’s a Brad, Brad World said. “I really felt like I had done my time, and I had reached a point personally — it was not anything that Rachel was doing — I had reached a point for me where I was like, ‘I’m 33 years old. I love my job, but there’s this voice inside of me that’s telling me it’s time to go.’”

So, has Zoe ever had an assistant leave on good terms?

“Um, that I don’t… I actually, uh, have not heard of a relationship being kept,” said Goreski. “I find it confusing. I really do.”

Fashion Week: Overheard at The Tents

What else is there to do but listen in on the chattering classes while enduring the endless wait for shows. A sampling of what we heard today:

“Some cop stopped me and wanted to look in my bag and I told him, ‘My God, don’t you know it’s Fashion Week?’ He was like, ‘Okay, go ahead.’ I mean, Jesus!”

“Is that The Sex and The City girl? No, it’s Shakira. Oh, wait a minute, it’s just Rachel Zoe.”

“Do you think Hillary will show?”

“Just get me into the Gucci party! That’s your job! I didn’t hire you because you graduated cum laude for nothing.”

Watch the Box: Misdirection

VH1 likes Celebracadabra – Seven TV and film celebrities learn and perform magic tricks from top magicians at the Magic Castle in Los Angeles. Watch and marvel as they make their careers disappear.

Bravo’s ordered a new docu-drama series The Rachel Zoe Project with tiny, tan celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe, her husband Rodger and her style team, as they work to build her business. The production promises that A-list celebrities will appear, but that’s highly unlikely. Bet it never goes beyond pilot.

Nashville Star moves from USA Network to NBC this summer. Auditions begin next month, and duets and groups can audition, in addition to solo performers.

Prom Queen Launches on MySpace

Michael Eisner’s studio, Vuguru, launched a new 80-episode soap-opera, “Prom Queen,” on MySpace.

Will the scripted murder mystery be as dramatic as the real events on MySpace? Remember when Blink-182 alum Travis Barker used his page to maul his ex, Shanna Moakler or when Nicole Richie called Rachel Zoe “raisin face”? Good times.

Chanel Launch Party Finds Lindsay Lohan Fully Recovered

FBLA ran down Sunset to the Chateau Marmont, where the Chanel Les Exclusifs de Chanel launch party was held. All the real stars were there or had been by the time we arrived. We can report that Lindsay Lohan is mighty spry for a girl who’s just had appendicitis.

Luckily, our pal Steven, over at the WoW Report, got the full experience:

Cameron Diaz was spotted across the room in a ’60s mini dress (gorgeous legs!), gesticulating wildly and hugging a fat man. Fat man turned out to be Harvey Weinstein–it was funny to see Diaz swishing her tail like a show-pony for her next meal ticket.

Steve also told us that, despite the stinkiness of the Chanel perfumes, the guests were waltzing out with every gift bag that wasn’t nailed down. “People were tossing coats aside, and grabbing the bags underneath.” he said. He also pointed out that Rachel Zoe had changed clothes between parties, and thrown on a whole pile of Chanel bijoux. We figure she got changed in the car.

Curiously, no paparrazi were hanging around. FBLA thinks it was really nice of W to have their party on the same night, so that Chanel could entertain the A-list without disruption. We’re trusting that Chanel will return the favor by buying lots of ad space.

W and Hollywood Have a Golden Affair: FBLA Goes to the Party

W magazine threw their Golden Globes kick-off party at the Sunset Tower Hotel’s Terrace last night–FBLA keeps thinking of it as the Argyle. Lots of svelte blondes in black, including Rachel Zoe, sweetly but maddeningly discreet about her latest red-carpet proteges, Steven Cojocaru who was pointed out as Madonna until he turned around, and among dozens, Monet Mazur.

Tall, tall, tall Jenna Elfman was good-natured about posing with a purse for Donato Serdella.

Philip Bloch, whom we know from our days at E!, has a film opening at Sundance, a new book, The Shopping Diet, and a fabulous matinee-idol aura. We both agreed that it’s weird to go to a party and come home schlepping luggage. Not that we turned anything down.

FBLA amazed Clifton Collins, Jr. by recalling his work in GTA:San Andreas. Pays to do your homework–or play video games.
