This A list director has not been in this spot for quite some time. Not that he has not done things to get here, but he is such a tool that I would get bored writing about him all the time. What brings him back to this space though is something that goes above and beyond. Apparently our director has a thing lately for college students. Not LA college students, but foreign ones. Because he is too lazy to actually go to a foreign country, he figured out a way to bring them to him. One of his assistants is married and has kids. He had the assistant sign up for an au pair service ostensibly for a woman to come watch his kids. In reality our director searches through the profiles and contacts the ones he finds interesting and if they meet his criteria which usually means willing to do anything no questions asked, his assistant hires them through the service and brings them over to LA. Instead of working for the assistant taking care of the kids, they end up living with the director for a few months until he gets tired of them and sends them home. Our director actually got busted doing this once with a different company when the au pair complained. Apparently our director wanted even more than the au pair was willing to do despite the “salary” the director pays them each month. The service barred the director from using them, but he just found another service to use.
It is the beginning of a three day weekend and I'm pretty sure I might melt before it is over. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend and the last big holiday until Thanksgiving, at least in the US. That is a looong time to go without a day off. I will be here all weekend blogging away and hope you can stop by. If you would like to follow me on Twitter, I am @entylawyer
