“The Rachel Zoe Project” is a rather arty sounding name for what is basically a typical Bravo reality series about the glamour of serving the rich. (See also: “Work Out,” "Blow Out,” “Flipping Out,” “Welcome to the Parker.”) As usual, it features a boss with a vision -- celebrity stylist Zoe -- and the often at-odds assistants and employees and significant others who help her realize her dream (and keep her life more or less on track)

When the Weinstein Co. announced a year and a half ago that it was moving "Project Runway" from Bravo to Lifetime, it did more than tick off the good folks at NBC; it sent tremors of fear through the fan base.

The day Licia Nicassio opened her doors for business, the first call came from an 80-year-old. The woman had an abortion in the 1920s and still couldn't get over it. More than worry what family or friends might think, she was worried about what God would think. Nicassio told the caller what she has told hundreds of women and men since: "God forgives you. Now you have to forgive yourself."

PICTURING THE BOMB: Photographs From the Secret World of the Manhattan Project, by Rachel Fermi and Esther Samra (Harry N. Abrams: $39.95; 232 pp.). Because we know the way the story turned out, these photographs, almost all taken before the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, have a markedly ominous air about them.
