I agree that it has a lot to do with it being about stylists. I've tried twice to watch 'The Rachel Zoe Project' and hated every second. It does not matter that her clients are high end.
She's dull. Her first assistant is unpleasant and rude. Her second is a crying wimp. Horrible show and it has Bravo backing it.
As for Glam God, I'll stick it out. It's pretty bad, but fun.
