Interview with Kristin Lancione from Beverly Hills Nannies!

Well, a few of you know that I am obsessed with Beverly Hills Nannies, they totally rank up there with my Real Housewives addiction. That is HUGE, people! Well last week I was tweeting during the episode and Kristin Lancione tweeted me saying she would do an interview! She was so fun to work with! She answered back to all my questions within 24 hours! I just love her even more now! 
Here is the interview! Enjoy!
Kristin Lancione



What is the most random request you have ever gotten from a parent?
I've been so lucky that I've never had anything really random or out of line. All of the families I choose to work for are very normal and know their boundaries. 

I am not going to lie, I cringed a little watching Maggie nanny on last week's episode. I felt bad for her because kids can be overwhelming, especially at that age. How is Maggie doing? Has she found a better fit? Or has she chosen to not take the nanny route?
Maggie is doing great. You'll have to keep watching to see her fate as a nanny :)

I love your brutal honesty. The one week when you were set up with the Fabio wannabe, I laughed so hard! Was that awkward for you?  Also, what was up with him pulling up in a limo, but HE was driving!?!
It was SO awkward. I was laughing at him the whole time and he just kept saying "you're funny". I think he's a nice guy and means well but definitely not a love match for me. And yes he drives his own limo lol. 

Is everyone attracted to Scott? haha I ask because not only is he easy on the eyes, he is an amazing nanny! He works so well with the kids! Does everyone want to hire him?
I think a lot of the girls on our show are attracted to Scott. He's a nice and good looking guy.  I know he has a few jobs as a manny- which is a few more jobs than others can say so yes I'd say he's high in demand. 

How many hours do you work a week? Or have you pulled back since starting your nanny agency?
I've pulled back a lot because of the Agency. Now that Cindy has Scott it made it really easy for me to focus more time on my agency and other projects I have. 

Best perk of being a nanny?
Designer hand me downs

Personally I love you and Cindy's close relationship, as I would want to be close with my nanny! I see comments saying their needs to be a fine line between friendship and work, what do you feel? 
I've always been very close with the mothers of the kids I nanny. I think it's a natural progression. You really become part of the family. But yes there is a fine line and you must always remember you are being paid to be there. 

Are the BH kids spoiled? If so what do you do to "fix" that?
I've never worked for any spoiled kids nor will I. If I had any advice to give a nanny who had to I'd just say treat the kids like you treat any other kids- if their parents want to keep spoiling them that's their prerogative and you must never teach a parent how to parent. 

Do you and Amber talk? Or was that the end of it? 
Team Amber vs. Team Kristin
We don't talk. I feel badly about the way things happened with us but she's not someone I can have around. 

Last but not least, would you please move to Ohio and nanny for me!!?  
Aww. That's sweet- you know Lucy on the show is from Ohio!!


If you do not watch yet, it is on ABC Family on Tuesday nights at 9/8c! I will most likely be tweeting during the episode and I think Kristin most of the time does as well! So make sure you follow her @KristinLancione
I pinky swear you will love the show!
 If you have seen the show, do you love it!?
and
Would you ever hire a hot nanny like these ladies!? I would!
They are so cute and lovable, my kids would have a blast with all of them!

If you are a nanny and have a nightmare story

  5. Adding this show to the dvr! Um I would hire that hot manny for sure! I'm sure my husband would fire him as soon as he saw him. I was thinking about the whole don't hire an attractive nanny thing the other night since I was a nanny in college and my sil is a nanny now. I think if your husband worked from home then maybe it wouldn't be a great idea to have some cute thing around
