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.
