At the afterparty for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the Australian model told Women's Wear Daily she didn't think Taylor would make it on the VS runway. “I think she’s great,” she told WWD. “But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit." Jessica later went on to say, "I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs." She then clarified to Us Weekly what she meant, and added she adores Taylor.

“There is no truth to the rumors that Jessica Hart has been fired or that she will no longer work with the brand," he said. "As you will see, she was a great part of our show, and we look forward to continuing to work with her. As previously reported, we at Victoria’s Secret and all those involved, including Jessica Hart, were thrilled to have Taylor be a part of the show. We look forward to sharing her performances next week during the television special.”
Whew! Glad that got cleared up.
