Hold on to your well-cushioned brassiere! E! News reports Jessica Hart hasn’t been fired from Victoria’s Secret as claimed by Page Six over at the New York Post.
“There is no truth to the rumors that Jessica Hart has been fired or that she will no longer work with the brand,” writes Victoria's Secret senior creative, Ed Razek, in a statement. “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.

The show airs next Tuesday (December 10) in case you’d like to judge T.Swift’s performance for yourself.
Original story (10:34 a.m. PT):
Don’t hate on Taylor Swift. That’s the main lesson to be learned from the rumored firing of a Victoria Secret model (the other lesson: Watch what you say at after-parties.)
Australian bombshell Jessica Hart has been given the boot over at Victoria’s Secret, according to a Page Six report. The famous lingerie company hasn’t officially commented on the matter, but Page Six claims “sources say execs at Victoria’s Secret are furious” and, as a result, won’t be inviting Jessica to walk in next year’s Fashion Show or appear in the company’s upcoming catalogs.
Whether or not this supposed icing out has anything to do with Jessica’s comments last month about T.Swift isn’t clear, but her departure does come just weeks after her less than flattering comments made headlines.
To review, Jessica had the following to say about the headline act of this year’s annual Fashion Show: Taylor could not “pull it off as Victoria’s Secret model” because “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.”
The 27-year-old Aussie later apologized for her comments about the nearly 24-year-old pop star, telling Us Weekly, “I adore Taylor Swift” and “what Taylor does on stage is nothing compared to what we do.” Or, in Jessica’s case, did.
What do you make of this potential firing? Think it’s true Jessica’s on the outs or just a rumor? And what would Taylor make of all this?
