has anyone read this? I can see this being the real reason Tay was fired?
source:news.lalate.com


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Was Taylor Jacobson not fired by Rachel Zoe? News reports claim Taylor Jacobson wasn’t fired over samples but Rachel Zoe was furious Taylor Jacobson had ink a major designer jeans deal with Kasil for herself.
Taylor Jacobson has made clear that she cannot comment to news about employment issues at Rachel Zoe Inc because of a confidentiality agreement. But when you lineup news interviews between Zoe, Jacobson, and other insiders since Taylor Jacobson’s exit in November 2009 and the present, you see something is wrong.

In November, Jacobson said she was leaving to “go off and style on my own.” Jacobson didn’t use the word “fired”. When Rachel Zoe suddenly began telling news that Jacobson had been fired, Taylor fumed.
Why?
In fact, “go off and style on my own” is exactly what Jacobson did. Jacobson had gotten her own designer label of jeans in a major deal with Kasil. Did that major branding deal for Taylor spark Zoe’s anger? Yes, claims Fox News. “We’re told Ms. Zoe is pretty peeved that Taylor is developing her own jeans line with conjunction with denim brand Kasil jeans.” How peeved? In February as news of the Jacobson’s jeans deal hit, Zoe allegedly had Taylor thrown out of a club where they were both attending. Claims Fox:
” ” Rachel Zoe was there with her husband Rodger (Berman), and giving Taylor dirty looks,” dished our insider. “She then had her kicked out of the bar! Taylor was escorted out by three huge security guards.” ” Zoe refused to comment about the allegation.
The insinuation in the series premiere was that Jacobson, fired, had taken samples and worn them, and then that she might steal Rachel’s clients. Jacobson’s statement in November doesn’t say she was fired, she since said she doesn’t fit into sample sizes, and as is evidenced by Kasil’s lineup, Taylor had in fact moved on to “style on my word” a line of stellar jeans that retail from $119 to roughly $200.
Jacobson has admitted she can respond to whether she was fired or quit because of confidentiality agreement. But she has said that claims she wears sample sizes were worn by her is bogus: “I have an answer for that….I am fat … 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 … Models are flat. I don’t fit into samples. I don’t understand. It’s the weirdest thing to me.”
The official statement by Zoe to PEOPLE in November didn’t use the word “fire”. Rather the statement only said “Taylor Jacobson is no longer with Rachel Zoe, Inc”. So was portrayal on tv last night accurate? Jacobson has this to say to TV Guide that reality is fake, and viewers know it.
“Reality TV is faux [fake] reality. It’s a contrived reality, and everyone knows that.”

I don't believe it, not a single mention of Taylor? lol

Gotta say though, it felt kinda good seeing Brad not being able to deliver.

^ They must have gotten wind of my drinking game and decided to spare me a night of drunkness.

I thought it was a pretty good show! Of course I laughed my *** of at certain parts. But it was nice to see it all about fashion and not about high school drama aka taylor.

Rachel seemed slightly lazy in this episode.. it's not Brad's job to do her job while she walks around in a Chanel jacket complaining .

Can't wait for the next one. Naomi is in it.

That's what I thought too. I mean, yeah Rachel wasn't doing anything either, but she is the 'boss' and is paying Brad to do her dirty work.

In one of his comments, Brad said something like "what am I gonna do, put my snow boots on and go door to door to each showroom?" obviously thinking it was an OUTRAGEOUS idea. And all the while I was thinking, that's EXACTLY what you should be doing, lol.

I've noticed too that they don't seem to do much, like when Brad's saying that he's go Oh so much to do, he's usually just sitting inside on his phone, talking to other people or trying on/looking at the clothes they have in Rachel is mostly stressing out having a crises

I'm not going to lie, last night's episode was definitely a tear jerker. I cried yet again with the McQueen tribute. Did anyone else notice that Rachel was flipping out when it was her job to style the show and blaming Brad? GROW UP KID.

^ i got teary eyed when i saw that too.

i wish the show didn't spend time with rodger and his "masculine" hobbies. i dont need to see him jogging or watching football while wearing a scarf on a fashion show. I'm missing taylor more and more, the new girl ashley seems nice but shes kind of dull and her style is ok. And I do not like the dress she picked for Demi at all. it just looks like a big mess.

i bet taylor would have gotten more samples than brad brad can't be forceful or assertive so of course people are going to tell him no
