Season 3 of The Rachel Zoe Project premieres on Bravo this Tuesday, August 3rd, and it looks like we're finally going to find out why celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe fired Taylor Jacobson, her assistant of over four years.

Of course, we're only really hearing Rachel's side of the story, not Taylor's.

But hey, more celebrity fashion TV, yippee!

About the season premiere, Rachel tells InStyle, "You will see what actually happened. It was just another situation in my career and my life where I got stabbed in the back. I got betrayed. It was time to get the negative energy out. You get to a point where you say that it shouldn’t be this difficult. I put up with it for a long time and I didn’t want to do it anymore."

Zoe and Rodger Berman, her husband, say Taylor was pilfering designer samples and trying to sabotage coworker, Brad Goreski, says an article on Zap2It.

Jacobson who's bound by the confidentiality agreement she signed while working for RZ Inc. can't really plead her side of the case. She told TV Guide, "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."

Hmm, them's fighting words.

In response to this statement from Jacobson, Rachel Zoe told Zap2it, "There is a difference between being supposedly fired and being fired. And it's not the first time I've been disappointed and it's not the first time someone has been fired from my team. It's happened twice before, which I can say is not very much considering I've been doing this for 15 years."

The third season, once again, takes a behind the scenes look at Zoe’s styling business, and Season 3 appearances will include Gwen Stefani, Demi Moore, Molly Sims, and Johnny Weir, to name a few, as well as bunches of red carpet fiascoes and fashion week hoopla.
