“Bananas!” Celeb stylist Rachel Zoe and her bow-tie clad assistant Brad Goreski have sadly decided to go their separate ways, effective Oct. 1. “I love Rachel and she’s taught me everything I know,” Goreski, 33, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “But there’s a point where either I do it now or I’ll never know what it’s like to spread my wings and soar.” Breaking the news to Zoe about a month ago was nothing short of “major.” “We couldn’t stop hugging and we couldn’t stop crying,” she says. “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.'” Goreski is counting on that. “I hope she’ll continue to teach me more and more,” he says. And while the dynamic duo’s frenzied pace has been constant fodder for Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, filling Goreski’s designer shoes will be no easy feat. “We have a relationship that’s not normal. I jump into bed with him and wake him up and we have these pow wows and he’s like, ‘Wow, I haven’t brushed my teeth,'” Zoe says. “I don’t want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky. No one’s ever going to be Brad to me.” For more of Zoe and Goreski’s exclusive interview, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE on newsstands Oct. 1.

NO! Brad was one of the main reasons I love this show! It’s not going to be the same without him :(

Wow. That was quick! He got his 15 minutes and is experience and is gone. When I first saw this headline, I thought Rachel and her husband were calling it quits. I was cheering for the husband! Rachel is too hardcore and stubborn, I guess it’s hard for everyone around her.

he left b/c Rachel promises her employees oportunities for advancement (say like with helping her on her line for HSN or QVC) & then it never happens – 2 assts in 1 yr.? my mom always told me the “Fish stinks from the head”

I am so bummed. Love Brad! He is hilarious and is one of the main reasons I watch the show. I can’t believe he’s leaving already. Just got promoted and left. I know from the show, he puts in crazy hours. So sad to see him go. Who’s next?
