Growing up in Beverly Hills among Hollywood’s rich and famous, Wasser attended Beverly Hills High School. After graduation, she did her undergraduate studies at the University of California - Berkeley and then got her law degree in 1994 from Loyola Law School.
At first, Wasser worked as a disability rights lawyer, reports The New York Times. But when she was getting divorced herself after a brief one-year marriage, she went to her father and asked for a job.
“I came to my dad's office and said, ‘Yo, I am so sorry that you and mom spent all this money on this wedding, but it's not working out. I need to come work here,’” she told Bustle.
