Professional Stylist Brad Goreski and his partner of ten years, sitcom writer Gary Janetti are much like any couple.
They met 10 years ago in Greece and became inseparable ever since. They live in a beautiful Hollywood Hills home with their two dogs Penelope and Jasper. And until now, the house seems devoid of clutter. Charming and nice Brad says he basically was a "house husband."
Couple of 10 years, "Will & Grace" sitcom writer Gary Janetti and stylist Brad Goreski stand in their simple, stylish Hollywood Hills kitchen. No clutter here, yet. But it's coming!
Changes Rock the Roost:
The couple's normally, seemingly quiet life has been slowly undergoing some fundamental changes according to Reality TV Magazine. Goreski's personal styling business is growing. His products, supplies, clothes, beads and baubles have taken over their garage. Great ambitions are understandable but as he transitions from "assistant" to "business owner" he is struggling with making it all work, and that struggle is making for some upheaval in the normally pristine home haven. Most notably, he lost a client due to what seems like messed up paperwork and schedule mishaps.
Goreski served as personal assistant to Hollywood Stylist to the Star's Rachel Zoe's for three years. He unceremoniously left her employ and THEN started his own celebrity stylist brand along with a show on Bravo that is "documenting" his new "world" "It's a Brad, Brad World." So it sounds like while the garage clutter is mounting, the daily challenges of running a business outside of his house are mounting too, along with relationship conversations around the clutter. And not everone can marrry a professional organizer.
Brad then heads to his “studio” in their home garage, which Gary can’t stand. “I wouldn’t wanna get changed in the garage…hm, no, that would not work for me. I hate dirty dresses!” he says. “I just wish [Brad] would get an office, I don’t like clutter.”
But as Goreski's styling business grows, so does the clutter, and the need to have systems in place to manage all of that. This is the issue when you start a business and run full steam ahead: getting clients to maintain your income and managing all the overwhelming bits and pieces of the business. Many creative types function extremely well in disorganization and mayhem. While some may lose business because of it, that is the price some are willing to accept. The issue becomes more challenging when no one agrees when the clutter encroaches on the private spaces of a loved one.
Could there be trouble in Prada paradise if Brad does not curtail the clutter from the castle?
"It's a Brad, Brad World" airs Mondays on Bravo-TV.
