[New York Post] Prospective assistants should give up dreams of sharing in their employers’ rich perks, according to one woman who used to assist a famous actress.
She recalled how “my boyfriend dumped me because he got sick of the fact [that] I always had to drop everything for her.” Having displayed such loyalty, “I naively believed that, given the amount of amazing stuff my boss got sent, she’d spread the love a little.
“She would send me to gifting suites to collect all the swag offered . . . I was in charge of organizing storage units full of candles, pens, body creams and things that she never had any intention of using.” The final straw was when the millionaire actress instructed her to sell some of the designer freebies on eBay.
“She wanted me to list the shoes and clothes via my personal account, and I was told to pay her in cash when the auctions ended,” she said. “When I pointed out that some of the shoes were actually my size, she told me I could make her a ‘reasonable offer’ to buy them.
“I’d worked so many 80-hour weeks, survived on 4 hours’ sleep a night, cleaned up after her incontinent dog. But this was the wake-up call I needed to leave.”
