Celebrity Inside Scoop: 6 Celebrity Personal Assistants Tell All

It’s incredibly easy to forget that the entertainment industry can be quite an unforgiving place. Hollywood can be burdening for celebrities, and these stars somehow hide it all effectively.

Some of the people who experience a certain degree of burden are the personal assistants of celebrities. Sure, being the personal assistant of a celebrity may sound pretty attractive, as you get to be close to that celebrity frequently. It can also be enticing to be involved in a celebrity’s daily routine, however, it has its fair share of downsides.

There’s a quote that says, “being close to the sun has its consequences,” and the same quote applies to celebrities’ assistants. It may look like these people are living the dream, but on the contrary, it’s an actual nightmare. Here are some of the shocking stories of Hollywood celebrities’ personal assistants:


It’s an undeniable fact that Madonna has been one of the biggest superstars in entertainment for several decades now. It certainly looks like this pop superstar is always at the height of her game. She’s been through it all from the tours and the movie appearances, and it seems like she can do no wrong.

Madonna certainly has a busy schedule, and she’s been known to be an extreme perfectionist. With this fact, it’s said that Madonna can be quite rough when it comes to dealing with the assistants that she hires. She even once had a “food intake” assistant, whose task was to monitor every food she puts in her mouth. Without a doubt, that’s an unparalleled degree of perfectionism and attention to detail!

Madonna calls her “food intake” assistant her “food police.” Her job was to criticize Madonna for the things that she eats, whether she’s had enough water. You could say that this assistant’s job was to get mad at a highly famous pop superstar for eating the wrong things.

Justin Bieber

There have been countless wild stories of celebrities and the path they went through during their rise to fame. Pop star Justin Bieber’s path to stardom certainly wasn’t any different, as he’s been known for his antics and wild stories. He even found himself in several run-ins with the law, not just in the United States, but also in other countries, too!

During that time, Bieber had a personal assistant named Terrence Reche Smalls. Interestingly, Smalls appeared to take the majority of the heat for Bieber’s mishaps. In one particular situation he found himself, Smalls took the blame and faced charges for an illegal transaction that Bieber engaged in while they were overseas.

You could say that Smalls’ degree of dedication when it comes to covering up Bieber’s mess is unparalleled.

Mariah Carey

We’ve all heard about Mariah Carey and the various diva stories involving her. Carey undoubtedly stands out as an incredibly high-maintenance singer, and we’re pretty confident that it’s one role she loves endlessly. As an assistant, the degree of stress must be off the charts to maintain all of Carey’s demands.

One of Carey’s assistants was Molly, and she appeared on the hit reality show Mariah’s World. During her appearance, Molly broke down crying because she was unable to get the singer’s Apple TV to work correctly. Molly said that Carey’s Apple TV is incredibly important, as it helps her sleep, and if she can’t sleep, she can’t perform.

It took Carey’s entire staff to calm Molly down and console her. One interesting fact is that Molly isn’t allowed to cry during her work hours. She wasn’t even allowed to date or see anyone for over a year. You could say that Molly faced more trouble after that Apple TV meltdown.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is undoubtedly one of the most famous celebrities today. Her personal assistant, Victoria Gamero, explained how it is to be incredibly close with the young celeb. Gamero started as Jenner’s house manager, and she was the one in charge of making sure that the young entrepreneur’s household ran smoothly. One of Victoria’s tasks was to have Jenner’s place always stocked with groceries.

Victoria also had the task of making sure that all of her cars were well maintained. She must’ve done well, as she quickly rose through the ranks as Jenner’s personal assistant. With her promotion, Victoria’s responsibilities meant that she was on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’d have to give Victoria credit as she makes it sounds easy, when in fact, we’re pretty confident that it’s extremely stressful.

Victoria isn’t Jenner’s only personal assistant as she has other personal assistants. A couple of them even joked about Jenner’s smoothie obsession. They revealed that Jenner once demanded her assistants to know what type of smoothie she wants. They also revealed that she wouldn’t drink it if it’s too warm or if the straw has been touched.

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston was once dubbed “America’s Sweetheart” during her days in Friends. Then, Aniston moved on to become Brad Pitt’s wife before they separated a few years later.

Interestingly, not everyone is a fan of Jennifer Aniston, and the list includes some of her former assistants. Her former PA’s revealed that Aniston isn’t a fan of sweating, and she refuses to look dewy on hot days. She would even make her assistants hold ice cubes to her face or personally fan her just to keep her body temperature cool.

You could say that Jennifer dislikes the heat or sweating to an incomparable degree. However, this habit doesn’t seem to be as bad as other celeb assistant’s nightmares.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker is one of Hollywood’s most recognizable actresses, and she’s known for taking good care of her personal assistants. Parker’s also known for paying her assistants around six figures a year. She was even kind enough to be the bridesmaid of her assistant, Melinda Relyea.

You could say that being Sarah Jessica Parker’s assistant must be good. However, it can be quite tricky for you to secure the job. Parker has been known to have high standards when it comes to hiring her assistants. It’s reasonable to believe that her high standards are part of the reason why she’s had a good rapport with her previous assistants. One of the requirements needed to become Sarah Jessica Parker’s assistant is a college degree.
