Did Rachel Zoe Try to Blacklist Former Styling Assistant Taylor Jacobson From Working With Major Fashion Houses?


>> Rachel Zoe
and styling associate Taylor Jacobson parted ways back in November, but the situation hasn't quite been laid to rest. Fashion Week Daily writes that Zoe "began masterminding the blacklist campaign against her former assistant" after Jacobson gave notice, citing a "well-placed source" who divulged:

[Rachel] basically wasn’t happy about Taylor leaving on her own terms and felt like she should have fired Taylor herself. There were a lot of emails and calls that were placed to big houses with the intent of keeping Taylor away, which is ironic because Taylor did about 85 percent of the work in the company.

Zoe reportedly also tried to blacklist Taylor from her usual hair salon.  Perhaps this is all fodder for the third season of The Rachel Zoe Project, which is supposed to cover Taylor's departure from the firm?

Taylor, meanwhile, is said to be focusing on developing her own styling company. She recently told Smashbox Studios of her upcoming projects:

I do have something new that I’m working on. I’m collaborating with someone (and I can’t say who) but I’m very excited about it.  It’ll be a completely new, different thing for me that I’ve not experienced before. It has something to do with fashion…obviously. And it’s gonna be really cool. But…I can’t tell you anything else.
