Taylor Jacobson Leaving Rachel Zoe: Who Should Replace Her?

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Nov 9th 2009 1:00PM
Taylor JacobsonIf and when the 'Rachel Zoe Project' resumes on Bravo, it will have to be without assistant Taylor Jacobson.

PEOPLE is reporting that Zoe has fired Jacobson, effective immediately. Zoe's rep, Carrie Gordon, has since confirmed the news.

Why Jacobson was let go remains to be seen, although, given how often she complained about her job on the show, many would say she had it coming.

Still, Jacobson insists that the decision was solely her own. Hoping to begin her own fashion styling business, Jacobson's Twitter account and emails to colleagues, leaked to Fashionista, reflect her enthusiasm to get out on her own. "I am saddened and exhilarated at the same time to announce my departure," she wrote. "After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take the challenging leap and go off and style on my own."

TV Squad Ten: Top gay characters

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 8th 2009 2:08PM
The L Word - ShaneIt occurred to me recently that there are more gay and lesbian characters on TV right now than ever before. That's pretty cool.

And they run the gamut from The L Word 's edgy Shane (pictured) to Desperate Housewives' funny Bob to Entourage's loyal Lloyd, who takes more verbal abuse from Ari Gold than anyone should ever be allowed to take.

See if you agree with my list of top gay characters on TV right now, and feel free to add your own in the comments. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

What Jane is thankful for

Jack BauerOh my. So much to be thankful for, even though the fall season hasn't been all that great. Here's my list:

Rogue agents. It's been Far.Too.Long since Jack Bauer has entered our living room, and we couldn't be more gleeful about his return - both the 24 movie and the series in January. Welcome back, Jack! We missed you! Well, my son and I have! My daughter and husband don't get you, but that's ok!

Mad scientists. That crazy Walter Bishop really brightens up our Tuesday nights around here. My son goes to school on Wednesday, talks about Fringe with his buddies, then texts me back their thoughts on The Observer, the cylinders, Massive Dynamic and all the rest. Of course, Walter is the best thing about the show. We love him.

(10PM, FX) 4th season finale
The Paddy's Pub gang is ending the season on a high note ... actually, a musical note, as Charlie's song 'Night Man' -- that disturbing little ditty he penned in season three's 'Sweet Dee Is Dating a Retarded Person' -- becomes a musical.

Dennis, Dee, Mac and Frank help Charlie stage his rock opera, a production which, without recalling all of the tune's lyrics, seems to be about one -- again, disturbing -- thing, but, Charlie insists, is about something altogether dfferent.

We'd love to elaborate more, but this is a family Website. Suffice it to say, it's Charlie and company at their politically incorrect best.

(9:30PM, NBC)
It's only the second episode of the season, but Liz Lemon is already facing bigger issues than Tracy and Jenna arguing about the profits of Tracy's pornographic videogame ('Goregasm: The Legend of the Dong-Slayer').

Liz has gotten the dreaded jury duty notice, and she's willing to do nothing less than fly to Chicago to get out of it. But she gets a surprise on the way back when The Big O herself -- guest star Oprah Winfrey, playing Oprah Winfrey -- is sitting next to her on the plane.

Liz sees the chance meeting as her chance to get some of Oprah's self-empowering advice on her life. And Oprah sees Liz as, well, a bit of a whacko.

'Vice Presidential Debate'
(9PM, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox)
To quote that great American philosopher Matthew McConaughey, alright, alright, alright.

After weeks of character assassinations and wild accusations being bandied about amongst the candidates, we voters get our first shot at hearing Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her Democratic opponent Joe Biden go head-to-head. PBS political pundit Gwen Ifill hosts the debate, which has already caused the Barack Obama and John McCain camps stress.

Both presidential contenders are reportedly worried that their inexperienced, "gaffe-prone" veep contenders "could commit a momentum-changing misstep in their debate." Sounds like must-see-TV to us.

How Tim Gunn made it work despite the skinflints at Bravo

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 31st 2008 8:03AM
Timmy GunnYou knew when the Harvey Weinstein/NBC Universal case came to court over Project Runway that things were going to get testy. But the information that came out today -- that Tim Gunn wasn't paid a cent for the first season of Project Runway -- was a stunner. Testifying in New York State Supreme Court yesterday, executive producer Harvey Weinstein said that Tim Gunn received no salary in season one, and only $2,500 per episode in season two.

The whole reason for the court proceedings involves Project Runway running away from Bravo to Lifetime. The Weinstein Company wanted more money for the program -- one of Bravo's biggest hits -- and found Lifetime ready to pay big bucks.

Emblematic of this fight over money is the fact that Bravo, apparently, didn't think to reward Tim Gunn for his efforts in making the show a hit by giving him something after season one, and more than a token amount (in show biz money) in season two. Tim wasn't the only one who looked in vain for something from Bravo; Heidi Klum received flowers, but nothing more substantive.

Tim Gunn gets a new fashion accomplice

by Erin Martell, posted May 9th 2008 12:03PM
Gretta MonahanWhen Tim Gunn returns for the second season of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, he'll be joined by a new sidekick. Stylist Gretta Monahan has signed on as the show's newest fashion accomplice. Last season, model Veronica Webb helped Tim Gunn make over several style-impaired women. Now it's Monahan's turn.

Monahan owns Boston's Grettacole Spas, Salons and Boutiques. She also has a fair amount of on-camera experience, having appeared on the Rachael Ray Show, The Today Show, The View, and her own fashion segment on Boston's NBC station. Monahan recently served as a consultant on Dove's Real Beauty campaign.
