On Tuesday, TMZ posted what they claimed was an online job posting for a personal assistant for Rob Lowe. The only problem is that it’s going to be pretty hard to apply for that gig, because both Rob Lowe and his team have pulled an “I don’t know her” on that ad.
According to the ad, Rob Lowe’s assistant needs to be willing to do the following things: never assume anything, make sure Rob has coffee throughout the day, schedule a haircut before every episode of his CBS show Code Black, make sure he’s got food if he comes home after 8pm, serve as his “body man“, tell Rob’s estate staff if he wants a Jacuzzi or a massage when he gets home and be able to lift up to 25 lbs. All that for $70,000 a year plus benefits. Is one of the benefits being able to brag that you get paid $70,000 a year to hook Rob Lowe up with a haircut?
TMZ asked Rob’s team if the ad is real, and they claim the requirements in the ad don’t match any employment opportunities with Rob. They did, however, confirm the coffee part by saying that “coffee is his number one priority in life.” Rob was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and was asked about the ad. He played vague about the whole thing.
That was like watching a nervous teen deny that they tried to shoplift a bunch of CDs while getting interrogated by mall security. And for what? He says he is looking for an assistant, and that list of personal assistant demands isn’t even that bad! Rob Lowe only wants coffee and a Jacuzzi. I always assumed (uh oh, looks like I’m out of the running) that a personal assistant to a celebrity like Rob Lowe would have to take care of way weirder requests. Like hand-squeezing exactly sixteen grapefruits in his trailer just so his trailer would smell like sixteen hand-squeezed grapefruits, picking the seeds off his strawberries, or standing next to his bed every night and whispering “you are still a major hunk” to him as he slept.
