Sometimes, putting a relationship on television isn’t the best thing for a relationship. Fame — or simply the expectation of fame — changes people, especially in fashion, where every ambitious young upstart with a pair of sunglasses thinks she’s the next Anna Wintour. WWD spoke to Rachel Zoe about her breakup with ex-assistant Taylor Jacobson, who has gone on to work on a denim line called Kasil.
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?”
So sassy. She does have it in her!
