Have fashionistas seen the last of "The Rachel Zoe Project"?
For four years, Bravo has gone behind the seams with the celebrity stylist -- and now fashion designer -- following her day-to-day drama outfitting A-listers. But now there are rumblings that Bravo may pull the plug on the show due to low ratings.
According to BravoRatings.com, last week's show "managed to only attract 518,000" viewers, making it the "lowest ratings ever."
Despite the dip, Bravo says they have no plans at this point to pluck the show from its lineup.
"'The Rachel Zoe Project' and 'It’s a Brad, Brad World' are both currently on the air during our Fashion Night," a Bravo spokesperson told Yahoo! TV. "There has been no decision on either show for next season."
Memorable Zoeisms from the latest episode:
And a Zoe insider sniffs at talk of cancellation, noting that the show has been better than ever.
If "TRZP" were to end, it wouldn't exactly be devastating for Zoe's brand. Since the show launched in 2008, her empire has expanded significantly beyond merely celebrity styling. Zoe has a growing fashion line which, in addition to apparel, includes footwear, handbags, and jewelry. However, her sales are reportedly stronger during periods in which the show airs.
Also of note, if Zoe's reality show gets canceled, she wouldn't disappear from TV completely. The style queen and her husband, Rodger Berman, sold a fictional show based on Zoe's life to NBC. No word on when it would start shooting -- or any other details -- but the couple will reportedly serve as executive producers on the series.
"The Rachel Zoe Project" airs Wednesdays at 9 PM on Bravo.
