If you watched the premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo last Tuesday, then you met Jeremiah. He-with-a-perfect-coif-and-just-rosy-enough-cheeks Jeremiah Brent. Rachel Zoe‘s new assistant has exceptional man cleavage and has never met Brad Goreski, the sparkplug that came before him.
New York Magazine caught up with Brent at the opening of the Frye flagship store in New York City, and wouldn’t you know…he’s never met Goreski and refuses to draw comparisons between himself and his predecessor. “I don’t know Brad. I’ve never met him, so I can’t say. You guys tell me.” Don’t play that game with us, Brent. “I’m a little bit more shy and introverted, so this is all, like, hard for me. I’m very quiet, I like to sit at home with the dog.” That’s a lie, because you essentially interviewed to be on a reality show. “So this is all a process, in getting acclimated to it.” Fear not. You’re good-looking, so you’ll last a little while in Bravoland.
With Zoe mourning the loss and betrayal of Goreski (which we feel is more of a “moving on” thing than a betrayal), has she been running a tight ship with her new bestie/assistant/shopping buddy? “I honestly haven’t had any moment like that. She’s always been so warm and welcoming, her and Rodger have become part of the family to me. I love them to death.”
A piece of advice to Brent: If you feel the need to leave Zoe’s company, tell her that you’re taking what you learned and growing your career. Don’t tell her that you want to go back to sitting at home with your dog, as Goreski so stupidly did.
