Taylor Jacobson wants you to know she’s doing just fine, thank you very much.
The blond, sometimes brash celebrity stylist split from Rachel Zoe in August of 2010 and was the subject of one-sided attacks on Zoe’s eponymous reality TV show, “The Rachel Zoe Project.”

Yesterday Rachel Zoe announced that she and her gay husband, Brad Goreski, were splitting up … amicably. That may not be the case after all. As it turns out, Brad’s frou-frou statement about “spreading his wings and soaring” was code for he’s sick of doing all the work and having Rachel take all the credit. Keep reading »
We’ve known for a while that Rachel Zoe’s former protégée, Taylor Jacobson, was leaving “The Rachel Zoe Project.” But until the first episode aired we had no idea why.

Thanks to previews, we already know that when the new season of “The Rachel Zoe Project” begins, a few details will emerge regarding Taylor Jacobson’s departure from Rachel’s empire. But since leaving Zoe’s clutches, Taylor set up her own company, hired an assistant and interns, got busy, and is building her own brand name.

How’s this for unprofessional? Stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe is on a roll talking smack about her former assistant, Taylor Jacobson, in the press. Jacobson left Zoe’s business — and the reality TV show, “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which showed how Jacobson was the only one who lifted a finger in that office — last November. Word on the street is that Jacobson was fired over designer clothes that were lost or stolen from the closet — though that seems out-of-character, in my opinion.
We don’t know what really happened, but we do know there was no love lost between them: when asked about Jacobson’s new gig as a consultant for a denim line, Zoe told a reporter for Women’s Wear Daily, “I don’t care what she does. How’s that? How’s that for an answer?” More gossip, after the jump… Keep reading »
