When asked about Brad’s Bravo spinoff It’s a Brad, Brad World, Rachel doesn’t mince her words. “I won’t ever see it,” snipes Rachel. “I don’t think it matters enough to me, to be honest. He should live his life how he wants. He’s not in my life and won’t be. People move on. All that matters is having good people around me.”
The two parted ways back in 2010 after Brad decided to branch off on his own. Rachel has since accused Brad of using her and lying to her about his plans to launch his career, while, there have also been reports alleging Brad stole a client or two from Rachel. Brad has always denied any wrong doing and stated back in January that Rachel has not been truthful.
Rachel’s interview with THR is for its second annual list of the most powerful stylists in Hollywood. Rachel, who recently turned 40, is however missing from the list of the top 25 stylists as the mag deems her “too big to rank.”
Too big to rank indeed, Rachel has quietly managed to build herself a rapidly growing multimillion-dollar fashion empire with 27 employees and counting. The Rachel Zoe collection is now carried in 210 high-end department stores including Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue, with retailers like Neiman Marcus boasting an 85 percent sell-through. In fact, Rachel has also designed a more affordable line for QVC - which netted $35,000 in sales per minute.
With talks of expanding into Asia and other regions, Rachel is more on the cautious side. “I’d rather tread a little lighter. I’m superstitious,” she says.
And, the question most fans want to know is will she be returning for a 5th season of her Bravo hit show The Rachel Zoe Project? After all, season four averaged 1.4 million viewers per episode. “I don’t know,” says Rachel. “We’re in talks with Bravo… It takes a long time to film, and I give 100 percent of myself as executive producer. I do love being on television and in peoples’ homes. I’m not an actor, so there is a connection that’s real. … But I also think, ‘Are people sick of it? Is it time to do something new?’”
Bravo is reportedly looking into a new concept for the 5th season and could make an announcement at its upfront in April .
