Combs Announces New Assistant On Oprah
Hip-hop mogul SEAN COMBS has found his dream personal assistant - after interviewing her on OPRAH. The 38-year-old rapper has been running an American Idol-style competition to find a new PA, with hopefuls submitting video applications on file-sharing website YouTube.com. Combs then brought the three finalists onto chatshow queen Oprah Winfrey's hit U.S. TV show on Tuesday (06Nov07) to judge them for himself. The winner was revealed as lawyer Heather Thompson - a woman he believes is perfect for the role. Combs says, "It was just a passion, it was the way she articulated herself. I think (she) understood what the job entailed. "She had a background that was stellar. It was just the way she came across."
