This included Michelle Obama ("She's amazing"), Oprah Winfrey ("She's everything") and Warren Buffet ("He's, like, my idol"). But for anyone who watches, "The Rachel Zoe Project" (season three airs Aug. 3 on Bravo), the only question that mattered was: What happened with Taylor?
For the uninitiated, Taylor Jacobson is Zoe's now former assistant, who was constantly feuding with Brad, Zoe's other assistant. On the show, Tay is cast as the (constantly complaining) workhorse; Brad, the token bow tie-wearing gay and Rach's obvious favorite. At the end of season two, Rach took Brad to Paris, leaving Tay behind to style celebrities in Los Angeles and curse the days Rach and Brad were born. Upon their return, she threatened to quit, and once the season wrapped, word got out that Tay had been terminated over lost or stolen clothes, as Page Six reported.
So, Rach, was that real or reality?
"That was so real that I cannot even tell you how real that actually was," said Zoe. "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?"
And is Rach in touch with Tay?
"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." If this is any indication of how things stand, at the mention of Tay's new gig consulting with a denim line called Kasil, Rach scoffs: "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?"
