It's A Brad, Brad World

Brad Goreski says that his split from Rachel Zoe was far less dramatic than she makes it out to be. Here is his side of the BFF breakup.

Brad GoreskiWhat happened between Brad Goreski and Rachel Zoe? The celebrity stylist and new mom says that her former assistant lied to her and left to start his own firm with clients stolen from her own -- but Goreski says if anyone is lying, it's Zoe.

"I think it's unfortunate that she decided to take the angle that she did because it's not the truth," Goreski told The Daily Beast. "It's unfortunate that all of the time that I spent with her, and the many lengthy conversations that we had discussing my departure from working with her, that she would choose to character assassinate me on television."

Letting his claws out just a tiny bit, Goreski continued, "I just think it's unfortunate that she feels so competitive with me in a way. Because I left to create a name for myself -- and not to ride on any of her coattails. She's so incredibly successful, that a stylist starting out -- I don't know what kind of threat that is to her. Maybe she thinks I'm incredibly talented. Who knows."

As far as Zoe's claims that he tried to steal her clients, Goreski flat-out denies it. "That's not the truth," he said. "And she knows that's not the truth. I didn't even say goodbye to a lot of her clients because I didn't want anything to be misconstrued as me soliciting anybody."

Will they ever be besties again? Doubtful. "Maybe one day we'll be able to speak again, but if she chooses to not, then I guess that's the way it has to be," he said. "People are saying, 'What's the problem?' There is no problem from my side. I don't have any problems with her."

For her part, Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman are apparently sitting back and laughing at Goreski's claims of innocence.

"Rachel and Rodger are amused by his convenient interpretation of events and have no additional comments," they said in a statement to The Daily Beast.

Goreski's book Born to be Brad is set for a February release. Until then, you can catch him on his own reality show It's a Brad, Brad World on Bravo. Check local listings for dates and times.

Rachel Zoe treated Taylor terribly and constantly lied to her. Then she treated Brad terribly until she needed him again. Whenever anyone leaves her employ she goes into character assassination mode. I am sure Brad is the one telling the truth. Rachel Zoe is not a nice person. She is greedy and deceitful and all about herself.

I believe completely that Brad is telling the truth - I agree with Anmar....the way Rachel and Rodger treated Jeremiah was terrible - shame on them for lying about Brad and treating Jeremiah horribly.

After seeing the way Rachel and her husband treated Jeremiah and allowed the no talent "Joey" to disrespect him, there is no doubt that Brad is telling the truth. Rachel may be talented and successful but she acts like a 15 year old valley girl who uses anyone who works for her.

Rachel Zoe is just a greedy ----- who doesn't want to help anyone make a name for themselves.
