    I heard that Taylor started going crazy and Paula couldn’t take it. Paula loved that job and would only resign if something major went down. Apparently Taylor said some really horrible things to Paula so she quit. They were really at odds at the direction of which Taylor should go towards. Taylor has become a very vindictive person and when she doesn’t get what she wants she throws fits like a little spoiled baby. Taylor is having some mild psychiatric issues. Paula couldn’t take it anymore.
