Last year, fans of Rachel Zoe
's reality show The Rachel Zoe Project
were shocked when Zoe's right-hand lady Taylor Jacobson announced her departure from the stylist's team. While Taylor admittedly endured a lot of criticism and body-snarking on the show, she had been working in close-contact with Zoe for four years by the time she left her post.
Apparently Zoe didn't take Taylor's decision too well, either. A source told Fashion Week Daily
, "She basically wasn’t happy about Taylor leaving on her own terms and felt like she should have fired Taylor herself. There were a lot of e-mails and calls that were placed to big houses with the intent of keeping Taylor away, which is ironic because Taylor did about 85% of the work in the company."
But that isn't the worst of it: the source claims Zoe even told Taylor's hairstylist to cut ties. "Taylor’s stylist called her and said that she could only do her hair from home after a Zoe freak-out."
Meanwhile, Jacobson has just launched a new blog, Love, Taylor,
in which she runs down her style favorites - independently.***Zimbio Update***
