There are some staffing changes to keep up with in Kim Kardashian's life. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians sister has parted ways with her assistant of four years.
“Kim made a decision to let Stephanie go,” an inside source told PEOPLE. “She was a good assistant but when Stephanie wanted to transition into a larger role with Kim’s brand and businesses, it just didn’t work. Kim gave her the chance but after a short period of time it became clear that Stephanie just didn’t have the knowledge to take on a role like that. Kim made an executive decision to part ways.”
Prior to Kim, Stephanie worked for Mikey Minden, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Erika Jayne's creative director, for several years; his business partner, Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin, made the Kardashian connection.
And she really appreciated her time with Mikey and Erika.
"When I say I came from a small town, I mean that I would pass cows driving to school. It was country life: bonfires and football games. Our nicest restaurant was Olive Garden," Stephanie told Refinery29. "So when I came out here, it was a whole different thing. I had never seen a Range Rover. I hadn't really traveled, I didn't know what Givenchy was or how to pronounce it. Mikey and Erika took me under their wing and taught me everything. We traveled the world together. They both opened my eyes to so much, about being a hard-working, meticulous assistant, yes, but also just all the things life can offer."
