Is It Any Good?

THE RACHEL ZOE PROJECT is no better or worse than a lot of other fashion-centric reality shows. But if it does take root in the pop culture garden, it will be because of Zoe's eccentricities -- including her quirky habit of describing fashion in over-the-top terms. As in, "When she walks into that room, she's gonna shut it down." And "This is killing it." And "You're, like, actually making me cry in this dress." And "That's bananas." And even "That's bananas-amazing."

As for the show itself? Well, it's a pretty entertaining guilty pleasure ... but "bananas-amazing," it's not.
