Is Rachel Zoe on the chopping block? While a new report claims the celeb stylist isn’t bringing in enough drama to keep her fans tuned in to her reality show, Bravo tells us that there in no truth behind the report — read on for the full story.
Celeb stylist-turned-designer Rachel Zoe is extremely talented, but it was her Bravo reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project, that really put her on the map with it’s launch in 2008. Each week, fans tune in to watch the drama unfold in the workroom of the 41-year-old stylist, however a new Radar report claims that low ratings are putting the future of the show in jeopardy. According to a Bravo representative, we can exclusively report that the claims are “not true.”
‘The Rachel Zoe Project’ Canceled Because Of Poor Ratings?
Radar Online reports that an insider says, “The decision has been made to cancel Rachel’s show… all we are waiting for is the announcement.” The show, which is in the fifth season, is reportedly not pulling in the ratings it used to. In fact, last season’s April 3rd episode only brought in 518,000 viewers, which is the lowest number since season one — yikes! “The ratings are lackluster and Bravo has decided that Rachel’s show has run it’s course. Viewers just aren’t tuning in to the show anymore. The audience has also complained that Rachel has surrounded herself with ‘yes’ people, unlike her previous employees, like Brad Goreski and Taylor Jacobson,” the source says.
Apparently the lack of the show’s signature drama is hurting Rachel in a big way. “Viewers loved the drama of Rachel’s staff. There isn’t any of that anymore.”
‘The Rachel Zoe Project’ Canceled? The Truth:
A representative from Bravo tells HollywoodLife that there isn’t any truth to the latest report. “Not true. All of the Fashion Night by Bravo shows are currently airing and no decision has been made on any show for next season.”
We’re so happy to hear that no decision has been made, but what do you think? Do you think The Rachel Zoe Project has run it’s course or are you dying to see a fifth season?
