Tinsel Town's "Stars Behind the Stars" Share the Secrets

The Association of Celebrity Personal Assistants Launches Facebook Page to Give a Private Look at What Goes on Behind Closed Doors

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) - Ever wonder who is working behind the scenes of celebrities, keeping everything all together? The life of a celebrity, though charmed, can be quite challenging. Navigating demanding travel schedules, interviews, movie premieres, film shoots and life in general all while appearing effortlessly calm, cool and collected is greatly attributed to the experienced hands of the assistants... the members of The Association of Celebrity Personal Assistants. These assistants are the real stars behind the stars and they are opening up and sharing their tricks of the trade on their new Facebook page.

The ACPA is an exclusive network group that is always in-the-know about the best of the best. They are experts on everything from the best restaurants, private jet service, and latest designer must-haves to where and how to find lip enhancers, mink lashes, birthday magicians, event planners, nannies, cosmetic surgeons, and of course, who to call to get into the newest lounge with a month long waiting list -- and they have decided to share their secrets. "We work hard just like everyone else, just not the 'normal 9 to 5.' Our jobs require that we know the who, what, when and how to get things done and done well. We know the key players and places and by sheer duty, have the best insider information and we're excited about sharing our favorite tips, advice and stories with the Facebook community!" says Drei Donnelly, President of The ACPA.

While the job offers cool perks, being a celebrity assistant is not easy. It can be 24/7, highly demanding and require fulfilling very bizarre requests. Although each employer is different, duties can range from firing and re-hiring the chef, to picking up kids, to finding a flourless, chocolateless, chocolate cake, or selecting the "perfect" holiday gift for a fellow A-lister. Sometimes the demands are as crazy as taking Fido to the pet spa before flying to the set in Rome for a day to deliver a forgotten package.

Additionally, Facebook fans will be privy to jaw dropping stories about celebrity assistant work that falls under the "other duties and necessary" part of the job description. One example... an assistant was once required to remove a tick from the family pet's genitalia, only to discover it was actually a mole. These loyal and discrete employees who never tell the "who" are opening up a bit about the "what" with a peep inside the world of life as a celebrity assistant.
