The Kardashian clan's nanny tells all in her new book
Behold: A tell-all book that will certainly satisfy your baby Kimye fever... and give you an inside look at growing up Kardashian.
Spring break is here and we've got the absolute perfect beach read for you. Leave the trashy romance novel in your glove compartment box, catch up on Catching Fire later and finish Lean In before you leave. Malibu Nanny — Adventures of the Former Kardashian Nanny is the book you need on your lap while you're in the sand. After all, aren't you just dying to know what life was like in the Kardashian/Jenner household and what's in-store for Kimye's future caretakers?
We are, and Pam Behan is willing to dish.
Who is this Pam person and what are we talking about? Easy, Pam Behan is now the mother of a 7-year-old. Before she became a real mom, though, she played one to the Kardashian gang for more than five years. She began nannying for the famous family when Kourtney was 12, Kim was 10, Khloe was 6, and Rob was 4. During her time as their nanny Pam went from a naive Midwesterner to a capable mother, nanny and quasi-resident of Beverly Hills... for at least a while.
In other words, no one is better equipped to spill the dirt on what it takes to raise a Kardashian than Pam Behan and that's exactly what she's done in her new book Malibu Nanny.
The memoir chronicles her time from the very beginning, when she left her home town, flew to California, and interviewed (way late and at a beauty salon) to take the job as a live-in nanny for Linda Jenner. She had no idea what she was doing.
Her previous "nannying" experience was entirely comprised of hanging out with the neighbor kids. With the help of her employer, though, she figured it out. Who knew that decades later the job she took out of desperation would prove to come in handy once again?
So, what can Kimye's soon-to-be-nanny expect out of her job? Well, if prior experience (and a look at Kim and Kanye's currently lifestyle) is any indication, she thinks nannies should be up for:
- What's Michaels? Kardashian arts and crafts supplies come from Fred Segal.
- Knowing all the moves to Flashdance (and maybe updated crazes like Gangnam Style and Harlem Shake!)
- Spontaneous travel abroad
- And always, always having a sense of humor
We're also told that ladies with insectophobia or arachnophobia need not apply. What does that even mean? The only way to find out is to scoop up Malibu Nanny. The book (which includes exclusive pictures from her nannying days) is available from Amazon for Kindle or in paperback.
You can bet we'll be diving head first into this juicy bit of literature. We're dying to know what those girls were like when they were little and to gain some insight into the newest nanny's future!
