Guess Who?

Which Emmy Nominee Once Applied to Be Sean Combs’s Assistant? (VIDEO)

She may be a critically adored actress on a smash hit TV show these days, but once upon a time, the celeb described in the video above wasn't a star — she just wanted to work for one!

Six years ago, this woman tried to become Sean Combs's assistant back when he was still known mainly as Diddy, which, you know, came after his years as Puff Daddy.

The woman in question was a contestant on the first season of the VH1 reality show I Wanna Work For Diddy, which had 13 aspirants competing to become the rap superstar's gofer. Unfortunately, she came in fifth place — having been eliminated in the sixth episode. (Suzanne Siegel eventually won that year.)

But just two years later, this telegenic lady was back on VH1 — as the producer and star of TRANSform Me. (The wordplay of that title is a clue unto itself.)

And just recently, after breaking out on the watercooler-friendly show that made her a household name, she graced the cover of TIME — as the figurehead of a whole movement, no less!

Think you know who it is? Watch the video above to see if you're correct, and then let us know in the comments below how you fared!
