Now we’re over at the Wyse house with Lucy, who’s been a nanny for 8 years for “elite and powerful people”. She’s on a trial basis with Cynthia, the mom. Lucy says this is nerve-wracking and shares the amazing fact that the BH nanny scene is “really competitive”. Despite that blatantly obvious observation, Lucy seems tolerable at this point.
Over to the Elkins house to Amanda, who’s worked for them for a few days. Apparently the Elkins’ have gone through a lot of nannies. They’re vegan, organic, natural, and clearly Amanda isn’t any of those things, hasn’t read up on them, and basically has no idea of what such a lifestyle entails in LA, one of the epicenters of such a lifestyle. Because preparing before you go to work for someone? That’s for people who aren’t high-powered BH nannies, apparently.
We see Amanda taking the kids out and then getting one of them a snack – in a bakery. Which is a place known for using dairy products and eggs. Apparently there aren’t any Whole Foods, or juice bars, or any kind of other establishment that would sell, oh, fruit or something. Just one lone bakery. Wow, BH must be a desolate place. I kid, of course, because I’m in BH all the time and can I tell you? Eating options abound, and vegan/vegetarian/organic options are all over the place.
Just not in Amanda’s eyes, though. So the kid ends up eating a dinner roll. That’s super healthy. Carb load! Thanks, Amanda, for being so thoughtful. She shares she’s not comfortable taking the kids out. Oh right cause there’s no place to get a freaking salad in California.
Back to Justin, who’s accompanying Bitch to a shop. They have 2 poodles, which appear to be peach or gold. They’re named Nancy and Reagan. Then why aren’t they red? In a nanny convo, Lucy, who’s also there, tells Justin she makes $40/hour. Justin says he thought his agency was going to negotiate for him. Um, no, they just played you like a chump. Welcome to LA! Meanwhile, the moms talk about their nannies.
Commercial. Let’s figure out how much these folks make. At a 40 hour week, paid $40/hour, your gross is $6400/month. Subtracting 33% for taxes, etc., that leaves a net $4288 (even factoring in other deductions, you’re still left with a chunk of change). Even a 30 hour week would net $3216. We’re not told how many hours these gals work, but let’s go to the extreme and say 20 hours – half time – at $40. Net $2144. So these gals make more than a lot of people reading this recap (and more than the person writing it). For what? So far we’ve seen listening to the moms ramble on, ironing, and carrying a dyed dog. Oh, and boasting/complaining. All righty then.
Back from commercial, and Kristin is taking a personal call (hey! get back to work!) from Ari, who is a woman Kristin used to work for. Ari keeps or kept ducks in a cage. APS – get on this! Kristin says she’ll send 3 girls up to interview with Ari.
Over to Vegan House, and Brett, apparently the father, asks Amanda if she has a boyfriend. My response would be “none of your effing business, you perv”. She shares with us that they ordered pizza without cheese and is openly scornful. OK, Vegan House, have you never heard of soy cheese? My local pizzeria does a very nice vegan pie with vegan “burger” crumbles and a soy mozzarella you would swear was the real thing. And I live right down the street from you (well, near-ish) so I know you can get their delivery. Amanda says she isn’t the right fit for Vegan House. As always, love of dairy trumps love of money. And hasn’t that been the way of the world for millenia?
Over to Tsir – oh the hell with it, Bitch – House, where Justin is talking to bitch and Kyri (Eleison, On a highway in the night), her husband. She’s harping she never got her foot rub. She says – to Justin’s face – that he’s semi-working out. He says he’s making half of what other nannies make, and Bitch says Margolis told her that her nanny was making $20. We know from Kristin that she’s making $40. So Bitch and liar.
