    Nanny 911...

    Really can't wait to see what this show has to offer as far as being able to assist actual families in crisis... Mary Poppins to the rescue??? I actually know of a family who is currently filming this right now. I really have to wonder if the 2 week filming period is really enough time for a hired Nanny to get acquainted, assess and assist a family. Then again, from what I understand, there is a substantial compensation fee paid to the family... maybe they are just doing it for the $$$???

    I am an innocent reality watching bystander...

    so I guess I can say anything I want! LOL

    I hear that they are getting 20 grand to do the show. It also sounds as though they DO dress the Nanny up in a Mary Poppins style. Can't wait to see what all this show will entail and whether or not it will actually help the family in question.

    I am sure once it airs, everyone with little ones will sign up for the fame and/or the money! Maybe I should get me some shorties and sign up?????

    My mother had a "nanny 911" on call ... her name was Grandma. I guess not all families can have their grandparents available for child rearing.

    Being on a show like this would've been shameful, even twenty years ago. Times have changed.

    Parents today are so afraid to instill disipline.I hope these nannies can at least teach these parents how to say no to their children.

    We need this

    My nephews can be so bad and so disrespectful sometimes to the point I find it ridiculous. Maybe I'm expecting to much, I don't know. But I'd like to see what those nannies would do.

    *Hangs head in shame* We actually auditioned for this show. The casting director actually called me. Yes, the appearance fee is $20k with no twists, unlike Trading Spouses. Of course my wife suggested that if there was a twist, the twist would be that the nanny would actually be her mother-in-law. I guess fortunately, we were never called back for a second interview. And after watching the commercials, I can honestly say that my kids are no where near that bad. And with my luck, I would not get Nanny Yvonne for the nanny.
