Still recovering from your big New Year’s weekend? Why not settle into the couch tonight with some popcorn and Bravo’s newest reality show, It’s a Brad, Brad World. The series follows former Rachel Zoe protégé (and now kinda-nemesis) Brad Goreski as he takes on the world of styling solo.

We recently spoke to Goreski about his upcoming show; here’s what the ever-preppy fashionisto (and new Kate Spade New York stylist!) had to say:

1. It’s about more than just style. “My personal life and family life is a big focus,” Goreski says. “I really wanted to show people the other side of my life … the great people, my great boyfriend and my family. The different puzzle pieces that make up who I am. I hope the audience enjoys them as much as I do.”

2. He’s not sure he’ll spawn any catchphrases. Zoe has “bananas,” “lit-erally” and “I die,” so what about Goreski? “I have no idea,” he says when asked about a good one-liner. “I haven’t seen the show, so I’m not sure what comes up over and over. We say ‘freaking out’ a lot, but it’s a daily occurrence, every minute.”

3. You’re going to see him stress. “Being a boss in general was something I had to learn,” he explains. But developing the confidence necessary to be a stylist — not just an assistant — took some learning, too. “That was a major transition for me, and a theme we explore on the show,” he says.

4. Having an assistant wasn’t always easy. “Someone told me early on … if you want to succeed in business, you have to learn to delegate,” Goreski shares. “I’ve been working on the way that I do that — I can be passive-aggressive in the way I ask to have things done, so I’m trying to be more direct now.” Though it was at one time hard for Goreski to pass off tasks to his assistant, he says he’s working on giving away more responsibilities.

5. He hopes to show what really happens in the styling world. “One of the reasons I wanted to do the show [was to] show the actual process behind getting a photo shoot, getting a client … all the work that goes into it,” he says, adding that after he left Zoe, he didn’t have any clients for several months. “The show is very focused on me building my business … so I think people will really get to see how I’ve worked, how I’ve developed and that I’m still developing.”

Catch It’s a Brad, Brad World Monday night at 10 p.m. on Bravo. Tell us: Will you be watching?

Love these new pics of Brad, Angie, Pax, Zee and Shi in the park. They show how much the kids have grown. Pax, Zee and Shi are almost as tall. But is a woendr? Theyb4re so close in age. Pax is soon 7, Zee is 5 1/2 Shi is almost 4 1/2. She is really tall for her age. But both Brad and Angie are tall. Not to mention their grandfather Jon Voight whob4s over 6 feet. Love the pic in which Pax is standing close to his dad. It shows how close he and his dad are. He didnb4t have a father until he was 3 1/2 years old. He doesnb4t know his bio dad so Brad is the only dad heb4s ever gonna have. And looking at Zee makes tears run down ny cheeks. That little girl has become this beautiful, healthy little lady. She obviously is mumb4s little girl at the moment. And what about sweet little Shi? She is really daddyb4s little girl. Just looking at this father-daughter duo makes me smile. Shi is really this little daredevil. Her smile in the pics where she is ziplining is so beautiful. Even that missing tooth doesnb4t matter. She looks much more beautiful now that she is letting her hair grow again. She and Knox really look a lot alike now that Knox, too, has a little longer hair. He sure would have enjoyied this outing a lot although he and Viv are maybe a little too young for ziplining. But he sure would have had other activities in the park. Hope to see him and sis Viv out soon!
