For months we've all been speculating what happened between Rachel Zoe and her first assistant Taylor Jacobson after the assistant dramatically left the stylist at the end of the second season of 'The Rachel Zoe Project'. Despite the show suggesting that she left because she wanted a new challenge, Page Six claimed that the rift was caused by Jacobson stealing samples. It doesn't stop there. As we previously reported, Zoe has been said to have tried to black list Jacobson's name to prevent her getting access to samples.
Zoe has since refused to comment but has finally decided to break her silence this week. When asked by WWD whether the theft rumour was true she said, "That was so real that I cannot even tell you how real that actually was. It was like, I hired Brad [Goreski], 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?" And it didn't stop there. When asked whether she is still in touch with Jacobson she said, 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]." Just in case she didn't make it clear enough that she's not interested in what Taylor is doing she said, "The last thing I want to hear is something good about Taylor."
Something makes me think that this could be a publicity stunt to plug the new season but maybe I'm being to cynical.
What do you think?
