Another Scathing Review of ‘The Rachel Zoe Project’


Ginia Bellafante writes for the New York Times: "Given that Ms. Zoe is already a pox on humanity — exploiting an aesthetic of dissipation, invading our collective consciousness and spraying it with dummy dust — it is amazing that 'The Rachel Zoe Project,' which focuses on her career, manages to send its audience deeper into the territory of smug NPR obsessives who won’t stop ranting about triviality’s conquest of the American soul … 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' has led the recent wave of reality programming about mad consumption. But it’s a genre that feels downright unseemly as investment banks are dissolving, and unemployment stands at more than 6 percent." [NYT via Racked]
