We are currently supporting a website where we have successfully added rich snippets on the product pages and they show up properly on Google search results.

What happens when Authorship has been added to the website? Will they interfere with each other?

No, they won't interfere with each other my opinion. You can use both rich snippets as well as Authorship for your website. Refer the below image and post for more info..
