Rachel Zoe Finally Speaks About Her Former Assistant Taylor Jacobson Leaving

>> A number of rumors have plagued Rachel Zoe since her former first assistant and co-star on The Rachel Zoe Project Taylor Jacobson left last November. There was talk that Zoe tried to blacklist Jacobson from working with major fashion houses on her own styling projects, and then Page Six reported that Jacobson was fired after clothes went missing from Zoe's fashion closet.

Zoe finally commented on the latter when WWD recently asked her whether the rumor was real: "That was so real that I cannot even tell you how real that actually was. It was like, I hired Brad [Goreski, Zoe's other assistant], this little angel, and then Taylor just went in for the kill. And I, like, did not see that coming. I always knew what she was capable of, but who knew that was going to happen with the camera?"

When asked if she was still in touch with Jacobson, Zoe replied: "The answer to that would be: I would love to tell you but I would have to kill you. You'll see it on season three [of The Rachel Zoe Project, premiering Aug. 3 on Bravo]." Needless to say, any strain between the two has not healed: when Jacobson's consulting job with denim line Kasil was mentioned, Zoe said, "Ugh. Oh yeah. [A line] that I've never heard of. I don't care what she does. How's that? How's that for an answer?" And in the teaser trailer for The Rachel Zoe Project, season 3, below, Goreski mentions to Zoe that he heard Jacobson was styling someone for the Golden Globes, and Zoe replies, "The last thing I want to hear is something good about Taylor."
