I guess celebrities have the same trouble finding child care as the rest of us, but with all put together their money and privilege. But if this woman’s claim is accurate, 750 hours of overtime in 10 months is a lot, especially if there’s only one kid to care for– just what kind of schedule was this woman working, anyway? Did Bobby ever actually take care of his own buck? It sounds like things got ugly for everyone. This trend of firing the nanny before she can quit seems to endure all the rage these days.
