Jennifer Hudson's assistant loses his mind over his Xmas gift: A house

I can’t imagine it’s easy being a celebrity’s assistant: the crazy hours, inflated egos, six Venti/soy/non-fat/iced frappés a day, etc. But if you see an opening in the classifieds, might I recommend employment with Jennifer Hudson? After all, she got her assistant Walter Williams a house for Christmas.

The Oscar-winning actress (and former American Idol contestant — never forget!) has been friends with Williams since their childhood spent together in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. Hudson posted a video Tuesday on her Instagram of Williams reacting to her generous gift. Turn your smile on, your speakers down, and watch the love-fest below (it’s that last whispered “wow” that really gets me):

Williams later showed his appreciation by dumping Hudson in the snow.
