The Devil Wears Sean John

So I saw this Help Wanted ad the other day...

"Wanted: Fame whore eager to humiliate him/herself on national TV. Must be willing to sacrifice one's personal relationships. Must be willing to take one's Blackberry into the bathroom. Must have access to backup Blackberry batteries in case of a charging emergency. Must be able to function on 1.5 hours of sleep a night. Must be able to keep track of spontaneous name changes. Must have no soul, spine, or shame. Vacation time is 10 days every five years (NOT consecutively). No sick days. Benefits include all the Ciroc vodka one can drink, the honor of basking in the glowing greatness of a hip-hop legend, and 15 minutes of reality TV fame."

Man, and I thought Kimora Lee Simmons from Life In The Fab Lane was the nastiest employer in hip-hop! But after watching the trailer for P.Diddy/Diddy/Sean Combs/Puffy/Puff Daddy's new Apprentice-style reality show, I stand corrected. Something tells me Puff probably sips his Ciroc from one of those "World's Worst Boss" novelty mugs.

I honestly don't know why anyone would want to work for Diddy ("one of the world's most demanding CEOs"), but apparently that is the aspiration of the unlucky 13 contestants on the VH1 program titled, um, I Want To Work For Diddy.

Sean's televised hazing process, in which he searches for a new assistant, begins tonight--but you can already meet the contenders who actually circled such a daunting want ad in red ink, and auditioned for the show. Click HERE for the I Want To Work For Diddy casting special.

Then realize your own employment situation could be much, much worse...and go give your boss a hug.
