The Glamorous Germaphobe: “I was one of five separate assistants who worked for an A-list celebrity.
In the six months I was there, there was maybe a total of three sentences ever said to me directly.
The celeb refused to speak to anyone except for her main assistant, whom I’ll call ‘Kat.’
Kat had somehow been working for this woman for three years, which allowed her to earn the extremely difficult trust of our boss.
“One time, she asked Kat to ask me to go to Starbucks to get her regular drink, even though I was standing right next to them and could hear everything.
She didn’t even look at me. I felt like a ghost. She was also a complete germaphobe. Everything we handed to her — including the coffee I had to get — would have to be double-wrapped in napkins so that nobody else’s hands touched it. ”
We also had to keep hand sanitizer on us at all times, in case she needed to use it, which was constantly.
She was also afraid to do anything herself and would have one of us wait outside of the door whenever she went to the bathroom.
Kat would also have to sleep in the same bedroom with her if her boyfriend (another actor who was rumored to be a constant cheater) wasn’t in town.” —Sarah, 26
