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!
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.
