We met up with Zoe who is 6 months pregnant but barely showing. She apparently sustained her unborn child on Pellegrino and cranberry juice alone in an effort to maintain her sample size figure through her last trimester.Since we last saw her, Rachel’s expanded and divided her team into four divisions: RZ digital, styling, archive and design, and product development. Mandana’s the new VP of Rachel Zoe, Inc. Like most of the RZ staff, Mandana’s underqualified for her position, but she aesthetically fulfills a role in Rachel’s editorial vision for the office. An awkward kiss-ass, she literally lowered down to hug Rachel’s “peanut.” Don’t ever. There’s always a last minute push at RZ. Preparations for the launch of her first collection bogged down the office on this particular day. Zoe invited editors, buyers, and other important fashion folk to view the collection before the rush of fashion week. Since Rachel can’t seem to keep a stylist for more than a year, she and Rodger conducted interviews to fill a nebulous position which basically boiled down to gay sidekick. Jeremiah came at Mandana’s recommendation and is equally unqualified. It is fair to question the eye of someone who would wear that outfit to an interview at Rachel Zoe. Although Jeremiah lacked credentials and experience, Rachel predictably adored him and couldn’t wait to add him to the team, despite Rodger’s well-founded hesitation. During Jeremiah’s second interview, Rachel was wooed by his (not that clever) one-liners and hired him on the spot. In anticipation of his growing family, devoted wife Rodger went house hunting with Zoe’s personal assistant Marisa. A very slick LA-ish real estate agent showed the two a vacant $20,000 a month, 7,000 square foot behemoth. Rodger worried about furnishing the massive mansion and asked Marisa not to tell Rachel anything about the unattractive rental. Later on, Marisa showed Rachel photos of the place and Zoe got a “witch vibe” and obsessed over renting the dated monstrosity.Working a tired Twilight look, Jeremiah showed up for his first day and didn’t even know how to use the steamer. When Rachel showed up a short while later, she was pleased with the samples of her new collection. Just as the episode closed, Jordan the fit model (as opposed to Jordan the stylist) arrived to display the line. Want more RZ Collection coverage?
