It’s about time Taylor Jacobson set the record straight. With rumors of stolen clothing, missing money, and who knows what else, we’re shocked she hasn’t been more deliberate in her attempts to clear her name.
Monday night’s Rachel Zoe Project premiere showed a one-sided version of the Taylor-Rachel feud. It was a version where Rachel, the woman who had given Tay everything and treated her like family, was scorned by a conniving, secretive, and unnecessarily dramatic colleague.
So what’s Taylor’s version? Well, she sat down with TVGuide.com to dish the dirt on the mess that was once a beautiful friendship. And while Tay insists that she can’t say much because of a strict confidentiality agreement, at least some things are being cleared up. And for better or worse, this feud seems to be a permanent one.
On whether her and Brad still remain friends:
“No. You know, you’ve got to sever ties to a toxic environment and go forward. I’m trying to stay positive. There’s obviously horrible shit being said about me in the media. It’s no secret that certain people who shall not be named are trying to blacklist me and get me kicked off jobs and talk shit to some of my clients. There has been a lot of cattiness from certain people. I don’t go into it. People who work with me and know me know I’m not about this bullshit. I’m about the job. I can’t get caught up in this. Ties were severed. Whatever happened happened, and it’s time to move forward.”
On how she was portrayed while on the show:
“Reality TV is faux reality. It’s a contrived reality, and everyone knows that. I was an extremely hard worker and I still am…As much as people want me to go off on the show and Rachel, I don’t really have anything to say about the woman who I am not allowed to talk about. Really, I don’t have ill will. It’s time to move on and I have.
… I will say this: I don’t fit into sample sizes! Where did that even come from? I’m not a size zero. I have 34-D boobs! Models are flat. I don’t fit into samples. I don’t understand. It’s the weirdest thing to me. I’m fat.”
…There are always two sides to a story. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been supposedly fired by Rachel — just investigate her past with clients and assistants.
On what she’s doing now:
“I’m still styling. I do various jobs, campaigns, editorials, commercials, promos for TV shows. I’m kind of trying out all different fields. Still doing the whole celebrity thing: press junkets, premieres, red carpet, film festivals, personal shopping. I’m also consulting on a denim line for Kasil called Kasil+Taylor Jacobson…I’ve been blogging since December — everything from how to throw a garden dinner party to caftans to picture of my parents in the ’70s, because they were so cool. It’s literally anything.”
