Honestly, I stopped watching Rachael Zoe because of Brad Goerski and what he did to Taylor Jacobson.
I like Rachael but I saw straight through Brad when he was on HER show…and watching someone get used by a passive aggressive asskisser is not my idea of entertainment.
The minute he joined the cast on The Rachael Zoe Project I knew exactly what he was up to. That ‘Paris is Burning’ episode where he went to Paris instead of Taylor Jacobson totally bothered the fuck out of me.
I honestly thought, as seasoned as she is in the industry, that Rachael would have seen right through Brad from day one and stopped his little game.
As soon as Rachael found out Brad had refused to stay behind so Taylor could go to Paris, I expected her to say:
————–>”That’s too bad, I was really hoping you would make the right decision. I need you to stay behind for the job. Taylor has worked for me for over 4 years and has earned the right to go to Paris with me.”
When she didn’t I had to stop watching because I knew what was going to happen next…and I was right. Since that episode in 2009 Brad went on to Lemmiwinks his way into Rachael Zoe’s inner circle, first single white femaling Taylor out of her job and then doing the same to Rachael Zoe by stealing her clients.
Now season 2 of his own show will air after Rachael Zoe’s, trying to rip off of her ratings.
Seriously I have absolutely NOT ONE single ounce of pity for Rachael, this is what happens when you shit on someone who has busted their ass for you in favor of someone who tells you exactly what you want to hear.
The difference between Taylor trying to steal your clients and Brad trying to steal your clients is that Taylor did what she had to do after you forced her into a situation…Brad did what he wanted to do because he used you.
But that was 2009 and this is 2013, Rachael’s had a kid, still looks fabulous, is amazingly talented and has (one can only hope) learned a very very important lesson. I might give The Rachael Zoe Project a chance again (but I’d rather listen to nails on a chalkboard for 45 minutes than sit through Brad’s show…lol).
I really wouldn’t be so annoyed by Brad if he actually OWNED his brutal ambition.
He won the game but if you ask him how it feels to have won he’s the type who will stare you blankly in the face, say, “what game?” and proceed with some histrionics about how blessed he is to have been in the right place at the right time…*yawn*
He’s just another empty pretender clawing his way to the top…like Scheana on Vanderpump Rules.
