    There's nothing we love more than a juicy, wildly unsubstantiated rumor about something that has nothing to do with us, and the Page Six nugget that Rachel Zoe fired former assistant Taylor Jacobson after some valuable duds went missing from her clothing closet totally hits the spot.

    Zoe's assistant was also, in turn, a co-star on The Rachel Zoe Project reality show, gaining popularity with her grumpy deadpan (especially hilarious when contrasted with Zoe's generally bananas world).  Fans were then quite surprised to learn of the split at the end of 2009, which was described as an amicable one at the time, but -- not so surprisingly -- has since seemed to darken.  Supposedly, Jacobson was let go after valuable goods disappeared, therefore suggesting she had something to do with it. 

    Of course, Page Six cites no sources and neither Jacobson nor Zoe, nor Bravo TV for that matter, have responded to the rumor. The real question is: Does it even matter either way? We're sure more details will surface during the next season of Zoe's reality show.
