Kate Gosselin: Nanny Slams Reality Star for Parenting Skills
Kate Gosselin's former nanny is slamming Gosselin because of her strict employee demands.
During an interview with E! News, Gosselin's former nanny exposed the 39-year-old reality star's rulebook that listed a number of excessive demands required of her nannies.
"We always had to refer to the manual because it listed her pet peeves," the nanny told E! "You couldn't put anything on the ground. You had to put shoes in a certain spot. You couldn't close doors loudly. You could only vacuum during certain times of the day if she was home."
The unidentified nanny also revealed Gosselin's demand that 9:00 o'clock be the official time that the nannies finish their work.
"At nine o'clock, everything was done," the nanny continued. "Even if I was halfway through dishes, at 9 p.m. you had to stop. She told me her day ended at 9 p.m, no matter what was going on."
Perhaps the most shocking demand in Gosselin's list was that the nannies were required to eavesdrop on Kate's children while they spoke to their father on the phone.
"When Jon called the kids on the phone, Kate said to us nannies, 'You are Kate, so always listen in on the phone calls.'
"We always had to keep an ear and eye on what was going on. Kate would say she had no problem with the kids having a relationship with Jon, but it always felt like a façade to me," said the nanny.
E! News reports, the final straw that forced the nanny to quit working for Gosselin was how she disciplined her children.
"When the boys were in trouble, they were made to go outside, in their giant yard, and pull weeds," she claimed.
She also revealed that Gosselin's son Colin was often spanked with a spoon in front of his siblings.
