No family can keep a secret from their babysitter.

Words by

Giulia Brugliera

If there’s anything 12 years as a babysitter-cum-nanny will teach you, it’s that no family can keep a secret from their babysitter.

A child’s honesty will penetrate any wall of silence the family has so calculatingly built, which is why the stories of nannies are so juicy. Especially those of the rich and famous.

Nanny Confidential is a first-hand account of the daily life and juicy stories of a nanny for the stars. It’s (sadly) fictional, but so is 90 per cent of what’s in gossip mags and that doesn’t make them any less delicious.

It’s also just as trashy, but anyone who pretends they’re too good for celeb rumours can seriously just go away.
