Let’s start our recap off with a quiz.
What would you expect a Nanny to look like?
You will not misbehave.
Mister Griffin, he no here.
If you answered A, B or C, you’re in for a surprise.
Our cast. Straight out of a cola ad.
Our ep opens with someone telling us that BH Nannies life a “privileged life” in “dream land”, although the moms are “crazy”. Being a nanny is also “like having a double life”, apparently. By that they apparently mean there’s work life, and home life. Oh, like the majority of Americans. We’re also told that, “at any given moment you could be fired for anything”. Also like the majority of Americans whose jobs are at-will. You’re not so special, you know.
We meet Kristin, who’s been a nanny for over 7 years. She says she’s one of the most sought-after gals, and currently works for Cindy Margolis. According to Kristin, she (Kristin) is “living a life that’s not mine”. Well whose is it then, and do they know you’ve stolen their life? Also, where is your life? Did you just trade with this other person?
Perhaps she’s living the life of Riley.
Kristin is the “overbearing masked with politeness” type. These gals think they have more experience and know way more than anyone else, so they’re constantly criticizing, lecturing and “advising” others. These gals never put a foot wrong – or at least, they either make sure no one else sees their missteps, or managing to pin the blame on others. They spend a lot of time telling other people to do things their way. I’ve known quite a few of these gals in my life (including at the present time), and I am always wary, because their major characteristic is looking out only for themselves, while putting on a veneer of “helping”. I’m on to you, Kristin. *Pointing fingers at my eyes and then at you*
Back to the ep, and Margolis is telling us that due to what apparently were massive fertility issues, her “3 precious children” are “$100K babies”. I’m not sure if she means the fertility treatments cost $10oK, or $300K, or she bought the kids on the black market. In any event, way to devalue them by stressing how much they cost before they were born. That won’t lead to a complex. Nosiree.
Margolis gives Kristin a tour of the mansion, in which Kristin sees Margolis’ bed which, she says, “could fit a whole football team”. TMI! Also, ew. They also see a fish tank, and Margolis tells Kristin a long story about she and her son giving CPR to the fish. With little bitty defibrillators? Her cats, on the other hand, are “escape artists”. They saw what you did to the fish!
Kristin shares that “when a BH mom has a request, no matter how weird it is, you sort of have to do it”. Yet again, like the majority of Americans. News flash, Kristin – that’s how every boss acts. I repeat, You’re not so special. And I’m still on to you.
We go over to the Tsircou house to meet Justin, who’s been a nanny 2 1/2 years. Marika, the
mom bitch he works for, tells him to iron the child’s Burberry. Now she wants Justin to rub her feet while she’s nursing. I’m not even getting into the whole nursing in front of others issue. I am just going to say that if you’re sitting down anyway (and from what we saw, that’s all Marika does) then you’re plenty relaxed enough. Justin demurs, and says to us that he only makes $20 an hour. He goes on to say he’s a nanny, not a slave. Justin seems pretty likeable. He’s the “slightly naive and sweet” type, from what I can tell.
He’s also really cute. Hugs!
