The Rachel Zoe Project returns to Bravo on August 3rd for it's third season and we're sure it's going to be, you know, bananas, and that there will be much shutting of front doors. Celeb cameos this season include Demi Moore, Gwen Stefani, Naomi Campbell (she styled the model's Fashion for Relief show to benefit quake-ravaged Haiti) and Kate Hudson.
We just got off a press call with the Zoeinator (and many other bloggers and editors) and while she was surprisingly sparse with her "Zoe-isms" we did glean a few interesting tidbits about the show, her much-hyped falling out with Taylor, and her most regrettable sartorial choices. On her relationship with Brad post Taylor: "Brad's a superstar, he's like my knight in shining armor every day. We have an incredible relationship. We have a trust with each other that i don't think can be broken. He has my back and I think that's something that's extremely hard to find in this industry." "I think Brad and I have only gotten closer [after Taylor left]. Brad was always my right or left hand and we had to suppress that a bit while Taylor was there."
On Taylor's recent claims in an interview with TV Guide that she doesn't "know anyone who hasn't been supposedly fired by Rachel": "It's not the first time someone has been fired on my team," she told Zap2it. "It's happened twice before, which is not that much considering I've been doing this for 15 years."
On the one look she wishes she could take back: "Skin tight acid wash jeans, white high-heeled boots up to my knees, a sweater with a hideous belt, and so much makeup and hairspray I can't believe my parents let me out of the house...as someone who lived in the '80s, I think acid wash is better left in the '80s."
On her editorial ambitions: "I never say never," she told the Daily. "Being an EIC is a huge huge job and to do that I think all the other parts of my job would have to be pushed aside. I can't imagine that in the near future. [My magazine] would probably be a hybrid of a few magazines I love--W, Bazaar, Elle, Vogue, V, Visionaire, Love--there are so many. It would definitely be oversized with a lot of beautiful images."
On meeting Karl Lagerfeld for the fist time: "I couldn't get words out. He was talking to me and I could hear him but I wasn't really absorbing everything. I was so nervous I became almost paralyzed."
