The read of the day is Vulture’s Anonymous in Hollywood, tales from assistants in NYC and LA. All of the players work in entertainment (film, TV, news) and some of the stories (assistants lasting no longer than 3 months) sound typically nightmarish, but even more diabolical is the boss who made their assistant drive across town for ice. Imagine doing all that work for something that melts. (Pictured: my favourite celebrity PA, Sam Greenberg.)
