Wow, last night's episode of Bravo's Rachel Zoe Project felt like it went on for about 12 hours. Were Brad and Taylor the reasons we found this show so entertaining? Or is it just Joey and his insufferable gay-titude and Jeremiah and his whiney uselessness that are killing our buzz?
Either way: Swimwear shoot for Elle followed by Rachel modeling in her first cover story (some something about famous stylists for the Hollywood Reporter), all while Rachel is nine-months-one-week pregnant. Meanwhile, Jeremiah spent the whole 12 hours twiddling his hair and pondering his clavicle and trying to create the illusion of serving a purpose while nervously musing over his future at the company. Foreshadowing much? He got canned. Peace out Pretty Boy.
10.) "My body's, like, done."
9.) On wearing sky-high Givenchy heels whilst being over nine months pregnant: "At least it's a wedge, so I have support."
8.) "It's all about the accessories!" Truth.
7.) Fashion profusion: "Elle fucking turned this shit out!"
6.) How are you? "Happy! Well, clothes make me happy!"
5.) She's a "fashion-obsessed, twisted, crazy bitch ?" Her own words.
4.) To Joey: "You're going to have to do my make-up for the hospital ? " Obviously paired with the red lip and the Chanel duster.
3.) "It's not over yet so I don't want to jinx it. I'm Jewish. And a Virgo. So I'm double-paranoid."
2.) "Do I look fat or just pregnant?"
1.) She may not have had to wear maternity but: "I'm not gonna lie—I'm really testing the seams of these dresses."
