Okay, Rachel must be dying, literally, right now. Her loyal, often sullen, but always, always hard-working styling associate Taylor Jacobson is finally leaving Rachel Zoe Inc. We've kind of seen this coming for a while, but the season ender showed Taylor getting a new role (well, sort of) handling aspects of RZ's growing merchandise business. But we guess things didn't get any better. In an email to contacts today, Taylor said: "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." Who will make Brad and Rach stay focused now? Who will keep Rodg up to speed on Rachel's vertigo issues? Who will handle all those returns? We hope there's a season 3 so we can find out. Whatever happens, we wish Taylor lots of luck in her solo styling career!

Taylor Jacobson on Her Return to Reality Television and Whether She's Patched Things Up With Rachel Zoe and Brad
As much as we loved Brad's cute little bowties and Jeremiah's cute little tuchus lighting up our lives every week on The Rachel Zoe Project, things just weren't quite the same following the untimely and unpleasant departure of Rachel's first on-screen assistant, Taylor Jacobson. Even though she often came off as being a bit (to put it nicely) short, she certainly started out the series with arguably more stylist cred and experience than either of her successors. And everyone knows how frustrating it can be explaining the job you've been doing expertly for a while to a total newbie (well, sort of newbie...we love you Brad!). But after several years away from an ever present camera crew, Taylor's getting back into the reality tv game with a new series premiering soon on Oxygen called LA Style.
The Most Memorable Moments from The Rachel Zoe Project
Rachel Zoe's reality TV days are officially over. Let's reminisce over the past five tumultuous years.
Rachel Zoe Talks Season Three, Taylor, and Acid Wash
The Rachel Zoe Project returns to Bravo on August 3rd for it's third season and we're sure it's going to be, you know, bananas, and that there will be much shutting of front doors. Celeb cameos this season include Demi Moore, Gwen Stefani, Naomi Campbell (she styled the model's Fashion for Relief show to benefit quake-ravaged Haiti) and Kate Hudson. We just got off a press call with the Zoeinator (and many other bloggers and editors) and while she was surprisingly sparse with her "Zoe-isms" we did glean a few interesting tidbits about the show, her much-hyped falling out with Taylor, and her most regrettable sartorial choices.
Former Rachel Zoe Stylist Taylor Jacobson Is Filming Her New Reality Show During New York Fashion Week
Having worked for Rachel Zoe seems to be a blessing and a curse. A curse, I suppose, because staffers never leave on good terms, but more of a blessing because the exposure they get working for Zoe and being on her reality show leads to their own reality shows. Brad Goreski's show, It's a Brad Brad World, is already up and running on Bravo (and we're loving it), and now OG Zoe styling associate Taylor Jacobson is getting her own show on Oxygen. It's true she had a stint as a judge on Oxygen's "fantasy hair design competition series," Hair Battle Spectacular, but it was announced back in October (um, yeah, we just never noticed until now) that she's got top billing on a new Oxygen show called LA Style set to air sometime this year.
