It hosts a variety of reality shows that have been moved from BBC3 such as Bank of Mum & Dad, Mary, Queen Of Shops and The Baby Borrowers as well as a range of new shows. I'm only really interested in one which caught my eye on the promo advert that I just spotted. The Rachel Zoe Project. I think this was aired last Summer stateside, but hey, we finally got there in the end!
Rachel Zoe (pronounced "Zo") is best known as fashion stylist to the stars and ex-stylist of Nicole Ritchie. Nicole promptly fired Zoe in 2006 after claiming she "wanted to surround herself with positive people and influences". Rumours were rife at the time that Zoe gave pharmaceuticals to "her girls" and encouraged their stick-think figures so they could fit into samples she received from designers.
The finger was also pointed directly at Zoe for Ritchies waif-like frame and a war of words later ensued between the two which had Ritchie accuse Zoe of having an eating disorder, not her (Erm, course you didn't Nicole). Anyway fast forward to 2009 and they've since reconciled and Nicole is in a much better state of health.
Whatever you may think of her, you can't knock her hustle - she does what she does and she does it well! Nicole Ritchie has a lot to thank her for cos we all know from early episodes of The Simple Life that Nicole's "style" left a LOT to be desired!
Rachel Zoe & Nicole Ritchie in happier (or were they??) times together.The show is on weekdays at 11pm, but they're running the weeks episodes back to back from 6pm this evening. I'm feeling a bit under the weather, my Sat night plans have been scrapped so I may just indulge myself for a few hours.
