Taylor talks Kanye West, negative press, and more!

on Sep 14, 20090

 

Taylor: Can you believe Kanye West last night at the VMA's?

Bravotv.com: I know!

First I thought it was really funny. Then I thought, what a HATER. The girl is like 17. It's not like she's a little rapper ho who could be in competition with Beyonce ... it's just so tacky. Kanye is just such a hater. I love him. I've watched him really grow and I was a big follower. But last night, not so cool. Taylor is a good role model. She's not up in the clubs, there's no naked pictures of her, she doesn't do blow ... from what we know at least. It was just such a hater move to jump on the stage. I think it was cool that Beyonce came back out and gave her award to Taylor. It was just wasn't cool, a hater move. Who DOES that?

You would try to steal someone's award.

Oh totally. Yeah I would definitely do that to a poor seventeen-year-old girl.

So how was the Spring 2010 Fashion Week?

True to form, I was only in New York for a job. So I didn't do any fashion show. I went to Rachel's premiere party. New York is SO crowded during fashion week.

Yeah it gets a little crowded.

So gross. Like go home everyone.

Did you see any shows?

I didn't see one show. I was in a fitting most of Friday. Friday night Brad was hosting an event and then Rachel had her premiere party.

In this episode Rachel has to deal with negative press, what's some of the more outrageous stuff you've read or heard about her?

There's always negative press for some reason about Rachel. It's always untrue. It's pretty much the same bullshit - eating disorder, she tries to push skinniness on her clients, and it's all about being thin ... that's the general stuff that's said about her but none of it's true.

I was flipping channels and came across the show. I was wondering, how in the heck u can tell what color that dress was with your dark shades on. White v. Beige? (referring to the piperlime shoot)

Wow.. u must really be that talented.

Tay keep working hard and one day you will stand on your own when your ready. I think it was really cool that Rachel called you her beloved jewel. She values you a great and when she gives you a compliment like that take it in and absorb it. Your pretty much like a daughter to her so in saying all that.... know who you are,know your self worth,and be comfortable with your relationship with Rachel and no one can ever touch that!

All of u need to lighten up! It's just a tv show. Do u really think Taylor is what u see? I am sure like everyone else after a long day we all can get bitchy. We only see what the camera wants us to see. We see what sells. Go on with yourself Tayor, dont change a thing I know a lot of people that like u just the way u are girl! P.S. If going out on your own is what makes u happy, go for it, I diffently think your capable.

Taylor, you need to decide whether you want to continue working for Rachel doing exactly what you are doing now, or if you want to expand your horizons. I think you have the "right stuff" to spread your wings and do it on your own.

Taylor, Like others say, you have awesome opportunities that some only dream about, and in a time where sooo many people are out of jobs. We are so over your constant complaining about how you are the only one doing the grunt work and how you HATE your job. Chill out and be thankful for once! I'm almost ready to stop watching the show because you are such a downer when everyone else is trying to do beautiful things. And can I ask who styles your hair? It is the most hideous I've seen in a long time...who wants to look at and talk to someone when it looks like they are talking to the back of your head? Get it out of your face and show off your beautiful eyes. Do you think hiding behind the hair hides your crabbiness?

ok,,,so may your biggest fault in life be that you're not hooked on phonics Taylor. i just love the fact that you have some girls in the office to talk to this season. i talk and bitch about other people to myself all day and then i'll get caught and i'll say,,,ummmmm no, i'm talking to my dog. Especially because when i start to talk to the people that i'm complaining about they answer their phone or they walk away "because they forgot something" whatever. I can see the frustration in your eyes about this job at this point. maybe you should sit down in front of rachel and say, "i'm taking a vacation for a week, i was going to ask you,,'Brad or I' but i'm taking more control over myself." hahahaha be happy!

Taylor, I agree with Lauren, you HAVE to do a website with who you're wearing. I love everything you wear and am dying to know who are the designers. P.S. how do you afford such high-end labels with your salary?

Taylor: You might be good TV but if you worked for me you would last about two days. Nobody needs that much negative energy around the work place.

Taylor, YOU'RE AWESOME! Love you, love your clothes, love your style, don't change a thing. NOT A THING....stay true to you.

Taylor you are so cool and I would love to work with you. I agree, your too young to have so much negativity, SMILE more and release the stress, LAUGH more and you will find that everything around you feels better and you see it all through a diferent light. You have mad skills and I think alot of people dont realize what all you go through, as well as anyone who works behind the scenes, you never get the glory you deserve and feel transparent to the world, but YOU have the chance to get recognition and spot recognition on all the people that "work behind the scenes". GO GIRL love ya

Taylor, you are blessed to have the career that you have, working with various celebs and actors and showing your creativity. Rachael counts on you alot so that shows that you are talented in your craft. So stop complaining and enjoy your job. Rachael is one of the top stylist in the world and you work with her wow, think about it.

I am with Ann --OMG the improper use of "you and I" or "you and me" drives me mad! I have heard lots other celebs use it incorrectly lately. Its wrong, oh so wrong.

Lauren

Tay, I am a huge fan, ilove your style! can you please think about getting your own website where you give out all the info on what your wearing on the show.. like last night i saw a beautiful plad shirt you were wearing and im dying to know where you got it from!it was so adorable! i want it bad! it was bright sky blue with like bright orangy pink ... you wore it for the the interview where you talk about everything that went on in that particular show... well hope you consider it ...

Lighten up girl!! We are not privvy to everything that happens in your job day in and day out -- we only see small clips of your life with Rachel Zoe and your job. Why wouldn't you want to protray yourself in a positive light? Lighten up girl! Its not that bad. You are on TV, have an opportunity in front of you that most people will die for ... Use it and stop the negativity. Please!

I agree with Ann about your use of "I" and "Me" - it's like nails on a chalkboard.

Otherwise, you seem very unhappy in this job. It could be the way the show is edited, but it seems like you never smile or laugh, and are just a cranky PITA all the time. Life is too short. Figure out what you want to do and do it.

Just wanted to drop a note that as an ex-costumer of 12 years who has assisted many people, while the work may be thankless sometimes...you KNOW deep down so much of YOUR talent is what shines through on camera. Props to assistants who make their bosses look great!

Taylor,

I think that you and Brad should start your own business(or show) together!! ;-) You guys are a great team. Tres adorable.

Hey Tay, few people know what it takes to be as good as you are in your position. You are obviously exceedingly talented, creative, and charismatic. You work very hard, you are loyal, and you are a softie inside. It is clear you were testing Brad back in the day. And now it is clear you are testing Rachel. I also hope that either Rachel and you come to an understanding so you can continue with her, or I hope you move on to something spectacularly fabulous. By the way, your personality is the exact opposite of mine... I guess that is why I get you. Best wishes.

Taylor, No idea what goes on behind the scenes "at the office" and I am certain you pull long days ... but omg girl, lighten up. For a young woman in her 20's who is working in the business she wants to be in, your complaining is over the top. Try losing the brattiness, get a grip and realize you have to do the grunt work before you can be the star of your own gig. XOXO.

Tay,

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOU! BUT, please learn the proper way to say you and I or you and me. You've yet to use it correctly.
