I’m a little sad after seeing a preview for the new season of the Rachel Zoe Project — it seems as though her delightfully frosty-haired abrasive assistant Taylor Jacobson has left not only the show, but the Zoe and Co.
As for why Tay separated from employment at Rachel Zoe, gossip columns can only speculate. Was she fired for stealing clothes, or did she simply leave? Guess we’ll just have to wait for the bombshell to drop on an upcoming episode of the Bravo show…
OMG: This just in! Two members of well-known Detroit musical families are about to combine! Miss Meg White, best known as the drummer of The White Stripes is set to marry fellow Detroit resident Jackson Smith on May 22 in Nashville, TN.

On Friday night, famed punk rock legend Debbie Harry performed at a tribute to Stephen Sprouse, hosted by Louis Vuitton at the Bowery Ballroom. That alone is pretty amazing, but what Debbie revealed when she stepped on stage is more amazing.
Looks like girlfriend had a little work done for 2009, because Harry’s face was definitely looking a bit more youthful than it had in recent years. Check out her brand new visage:
This just in from a loyal reader who randomly spotted a well-known NYC musician busking:
Hey there- On Friday night I was taking the F train downtown from 14th Street with a friend. As we walked down the platform, we heard some music playing a familiar song (“Ceremony” by Joy Division), and my friend joked, “Oh look it’s [name REDACTED] playing!” I went to go look who it was, I said, “It’s definitely was not [name REDACTED]….but I do know who that is!” Turns out it was, [name REDACTED]! I couldn’t believe it. The last time [band name REDACTED] played New York, their shows were completely sold out. Guess he was just working out some skillz.
So I didn’t wake up today and say to myself, “Dude, you should totally be a paparazzi specializing in CW stars,” but it seems as though I ended up being one today… I just happen to spot almost all the major players in the cast of Gossip Girl! I was walking around the tent for Diane von Furstenberg at Bryant Park today and all of a sudden out the corner of my eye I saw a girl wearing yellow, and then a herd of people instantly swarming around her and her friend.
Walking closer, I recognized Miss Leighton Meester! I snapped a few photos, and then only later did I realize that the other girl accompanying her was none other than Jessica Szohr!
Leading off with a quote from the Buddah (“Doubt Everything. Find Your Own Light.”), this newest reincarnation of “Ryan minus Adams dot com” includes an abstract Cardinals logo, and prominent links to the Humane Society, Tibet.org, and the official site of Ram Daas.
In the upper right corner is a link to a “Personal Statement” where Ryan waxes philosophical about how he’s been working very hard, and hopes that his artistic endeavors speak for him. In addition to that, he reveals the following:
i’ve realized and accepted that if people decide to dislike me, they’re going to find reasons to justify disliking me. there’s nothing i can do about that. that said, it still does pain me to be accused of fictional crimes against innocents or to be implicated in romantic gossip involving the possibly reality-challenged–however unreliable the source or outlandish the accusations. in the end, however, i know that i have never done or even meant anyone any harm.
