Umm, I want to work for Jennifer Hudson, and I’m sure all of you will too after hearing what she bought for her beloved friend and personal assistant, Walter Williams, for Christmas. The holidays must have made the Oscar winner feel extra generous this year. She recently posted an Instagram video with the caption, “My assistant Walter’s reaction when he found out I was buying him a house for Christmas!” The man got a house for Christmas! How amazing is that?
Walter’s reaction is priceless. He drops the paperwork, screams, then charges over to Jennifer, who is sitting on a couch. The two friends actually go way back. They met in the sixth grade and he has been by her side through all of the success and unfortunate tragedies. “He’s by far my closest friend,” she told The Advocate in 2011.
I think it’s great how she just acts as if everything’s normal, allows him to open up the present all methodically, only to smile and laugh along with him after he runs over to her on the couch. How precious. You know, celebs should share the love with their personal assistants more often. After all, they’re the creatures who help their chaotic lives run smoothly!
Jennifer also plans to continue spreading the love over the course of the New Year. She revealed that she hopes to turn her childhood home in Englewood, Illinois into a women’s shelter.
