Nannies In The News

Nannies are very much in the news today.

  • New York Times columnist Helaine Olen could help but read her nanny’s blog, whereupon she decided the nanny was a pill popping bisexual alcoholic whore – and not-so coincidentally was shortly thereafter an ex-nanny. The whole situation is now messy, and very public, because Olen decided to use the nanny’s anonymous blog as the basis for a Sunday Times piece. Olen comes off as neurotic and pathetic in lamenting her undetailed youthful indiscretions while spinning assorted snippets of blog text into a unflattering portrait of the nanny. The nanny must have been smoking crack to think that it was a good idea to share her blog URL with her employer (Washingtonienne anyone?), so it’s hard to feel sorry for her for getting fired, BUT to be pilloried in the Times when anyone with half a brain can easily find the nanny’s blog is reprehensible. You can read nanny Tessa’s detailed response.
  • Nanny Brunilda Tirado and a Mountain Buggy Urban Double Jogging Stroller were responsible for a two year-old surviving, largely unhurt, from a building collapse in New York last week.
  • Jude Law is the latest in a long line of male celebrities who couldn’t keep his hands off the nanny. In this case his affair with nanny Daisy Wright has caused him to offer a very public apology to his finance Sienna Miller.
