The Daily is always asking the assistants to dish, but what about their high-powered bosses? We bumped into Essence EIC Constance White while front row-hopping, who got The Daily treatment in the Media Issue over the weekend, and since White will be handing her superstylish assistant Joy over for The Files in the very near future, we got a petite preview!

How did you find your assistant Joy Adaeze?
She’s friends with my daughter!

Does she ever run personal errands?
You’re not supposed to do that! [laughs] Of course she does! 

What time does she get in?
Initially, she was supposed to be there at nine, but that wasn’t working out, so we changed it to 10. 

How does she help you the most?
Her spirit keeps me going. The most important thing that Joy does is keep me on schedule. 

What’s the hardest thing about working for you?
[laughs] There is nothing hard about working for me!
