The buzz around the epic reality-TV-world-shattering Rachel Zoe slash Brad Goreski split says that the parting was not amicable. At all. According to Rob Schuter over at PopEater, sources say: "Brad was sick of doing all the work while Rachel got all the credit, while Rachel feels used by Brad. She feels as if she taught him everything and the second he got a chance to leave her high and dry he did."
Other reports claim that tension had been building all along, but the NY Times Style section cover story on Goreski was the straw that broke the camel's back:
"Fashion week was definitely the turning point," a friend of Rachel's tells me. "Brad was sitting on the front row of every show and getting invited to as may events as his boss. However the final straw was when Brad appeared on the cover of The New York Times style section. Rachel hit the roof and reminded him he was her assistant and it was called 'The Rachel Zoe' show not the Brad Goreski show. That was the moment that the two of them were over."· About that Rachel Zoe and Brad Goreski split [PopEater]
