One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
A lot has been going on in the world of Rachel Zoe this year.
She launched her own clothing line, moved into a huge Beverly Hills home and finally started her family. But somewhere between the all the baby and clothing chaos Zoe managed to quietly part ways with her talent manager Todd Shemarya.
Shemarya is credited for making "Rachel Zoe" a household name because he's the one who negotiated her reality show deal, collaborations with QVC and Piperlime as well as her new clothing line.
Todd insists the split was amicable, telling the New York Post:
"This year we came to a mutual agreement that we had pretty much accomplished everything we could together and it was time for us to separate. No drama. I think Rachel is a very talented woman and I wish her all success in her future; we just saw the future differently."
Rachel's business opportunities are now being handled by the William Morris Agency and her hubby Rodger Berman.
We're sure this will all play out during the next season of The Rachel Zoe Project.
