P.A. Confidential

The relationship between a PA and their boss is often a close one. A PA is privy to the professional and private life of their boss which can include highly sensitive information or activity.

Lady-Gaga.jpgWe were struck by a recent announcement that Jennifer O’Neill, Lady Gaga’s ex personal assistant, would be releasing a tell-all book about their time together. Their fraught relationship has already been splashed across the media after O’Neill took Gaga to court over unpaid earnings and emotional distress.

The past year alone has been interesting for PA and assistant related stories.

Nigella.jpgNigella Lawson, for example, was subjected to scandal and public scrutiny after her assistants exposed her personal life. Not only did they allegedly take advantage of the household credit cards but painted Nigella as a heavy drinker and drug taker.

Then there was Premier League boss Richard Scudamore’s PA who leaked a slew of sexist emails he had sent to fellow employees and friends. His PA, who subsequently quit, said she couldn’t face him after reading his lewd communications.

Anna.jpgMost famously perhaps was Anna Wintour’s assistant, Lauren Weisberger, who penned the semi-biographical novel ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. Later made into a Hollywood blockbuster of the same name, the book exposes the Vogue editor-in-chief as an evil, overbearing and manipulative boss. Fellow Vogue colleagues later branded Weisberger as bitter and disloyal.

Trust is an important factor in any relationship and especially so between a PA and their boss. So when, if ever, is it acceptable for a PA to break his or her vow of confidentiality?

Whilst we leave this decision to our readers, we will say this. No matter how flawed or unfair your boss (or former boss) may be – exposing them is just as damaging to your reputation, as it is theirs.
