I don’t know what this says about me as a person, but I love celebrity feuds. Extra points if they’re reality television based, so we can see them play out each week on Bravo! One of my all-time favs is Rachel Zoe vs. ex-assistant Taylor Jacobson. If you recall the end of season two of The Rachel Zoe Project, Taylor had been left behind in LA to, ya know, work while Rachel took her favorite child/other assistant Brad Goreski to Paris to shop and go to fashion shows.
Once Team Zoe was assembled back in Los Angeles, Tay threatened to quit and the show ended on a cliffhanger, but during its hiatus, word has spread that Taylor either quit or was fired over stolen clothes? Taylor denies the story and there is talk that the Page Six story could have been planted by Rachel Zoe.
Who knows the truth… But it’s all totally awesome. And according to a recent WWD interview with Rachel, the feud is far from over:
WWD: So, Rach, was that real or reality?
Rachel Zoe: That was so real that I cannot even tell you how real that actually was. It was like, I hired Brad, this little angel, and then Taylor just went in for the kill. And I, like, did not see that coming. I always knew what she was capable of, but who knew that was going to happen with the camera?
WWD: And is Rach in touch with Tay?
Zoe: The answer to that would be: I would love to tell you but I would have to kill you. You’ll see it on season three.
And when WWD mentions Taylor’s new gig consulting with a denim line called Kasil…
Zoe: Ugh. Oh yeah. [A line] that I’ve never heard of. I don’t care what she does. How’s that? How’s that for an answer?
Um, it’s a great answer, Rachel. You make for good reality television and I cannot wait for The Rachel Zoe Project Season 3. It premieres Aug. 3 on Bravo…
