TVGuide.com: Do you feel like you were fairly portrayed on the show before you left?
Jacobson: Reality TV is faux reality. It's a contrived reality, and everyone knows that. I was an extremely hard worker and I still am. So, in that sense, yes. 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.
TVGuide.com: The first episode contains flashbacks to your happier times with Rachel. She often referred to you as family. Are you hurt at all by how things have ended?
Jacobson: I have an answer for that, and while I would like to say what I have on my mind, I don't think it would be good. When you work for anyone high profile, you sign a confidentiality agreement. That's why I really can't talk about it. 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.
TVGuide.com: Oh, please.
Jacobson: I don't fit into samples! God, when is this show going to end?
TVGuide.com: Word is you have been approached by other networks to do a spin-off series.
Jacobson: Yes, but I'm not interested. Also, I'm not a catty person. I did four years. I've worked with other celebrity stylists. With Rachel, I was just at a point where it was time for me to do it on my own and concentrate on my career and on where I want to go and what I want to do — and not be under someone's shadow. Things in the styling business? The lines get blurred. Things get misconstrued. 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. It doesn't matter really what I say. The going back and forth? I don't want to keep perpetuating it. There are 50 million things that I could say, but where is that going to get me?

Dunno why all this is shocking. Breaking news: People in the fashion industry do drugs. A lot of drugs.ReplyDelete
I studied fashion design at Pratt in the late '90s, was able to intern at various fashion houses and studios. The ugly truth is that many in the industry, from designers to models and anyone in between, use drugs recreationally if not heavily. No one bats an eyelash. It's one of the few industries where you can still succeed while being f-ed up on drugs. Judging from Rachael Zoe, nothing has really changed since I got out of that industry.
