Looks like Rachel Zoe is saying bye-bye to Tay-Tay! Though she has threatened to quit numerous times, this time it’s official: after fours years at Rachel Zoe Inc., Taylor Jacobson is calling it quits. Rachel Zoe’s former assistant is making a go at celebrity styling on her own. Though we saw this coming, we are going to miss Taylor’s dirty looks, snide comments and amazing wardrobe. Bananas!
Taylor Jacobson, who has worked with stylist Rachel Zoe for four years as seen on Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, was fired this morning, effective immediately, according to sources.
Jacobson, who was often at odds with her boss and coworker Brad Goreski on the reality show but helped Zoe’s celebrity styling business run smoothly, wrote on her Twitter account: “Today is an end of an era and a beginning of a new professional chapter. Looking forward to what the future brings…!!!”
No word on the cause behind the termination or the future of the reality show, which has shot for two seasons.
Meanwhile, Jacobson is reportedly saying it was her decision to leave. Fashionista.com posted an email that she sent to her contacts: “After four amazing years at Rachel Zoe Corporation, I’m saddened and exhilarated at the same time to announce my departure. After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take the challenging leap to go off and style on my own.”
Zoe’s rep Carrie Gordon would only confirm to PEOPLE, “Taylor Jacobson is no longer with Rachel Zoe, Inc.” –Julie Jordan
