Not So Ba-na-nas: The Rachel Zoe Project Comes to an End

“Oh- my- God, I- die.” One would expect this to be the reaction that Rachel Zoe is having now that her Bravo reality show has been cancelled after its five season run. Her reaction seems to be the exact opposite, however.

The stylist is featured on the September cover of Capitol File magazine and she offered the publication some insight into the world of Zoe. During her interview, Zoe shares, “’The Rachel Zoe Project’ was meant to be a show solely based on fashion and designers and all of that, and clearly it wasn’t.”

I couldn’t agree with her more.

The first season quickly turned from fashion to drama with the ongoing love/hate relationship between Taylor “Tay” Jacobson and Brad Goreski. This really set the tone for the show and held steady until the end. Along the way Rachel lost Brad but gained an empire and her son, Skyler.

The lowest-ever ratings for the show occurred during what is now its final episode, which seems to be the complete opposite of what one would think, as most shows end with a bang. It pulled away from fashion and into her life, but this is something she no longer wishes to happen. After all is said and done, what is left?

Despite the luxurious lifestyle and massive closet of vintage designer clothing, Zoe is really just a wife and mother.

Rachel, you are “shutting- it- down” and we think you deserve it.
