Actress Eva Amurri Martino, 30, has written a blog post that is part cautionary tale, part lurid gossip column — and I love it.
I’ve previously railed against the “hot nanny wants to steal your man” trope. It’s offensive to nannies, and to husbands.
I have to pay this one though, because this nanny really was trying to get it on with Martino’s husband — and he’s got the texts to prove it.
Here’s what happened:
Martino, who is the daughter of Susan Sarandon, employed a new nanny to care for her daughter Marlowe just three weeks ago.
In a blog post from that time, she described her as “a wonderful woman who is smart, responsible, fun, and caring”.
While Amurri was on a business trip, this new nanny sent a text to her husband, Kyle Martino, about an hour before she was due to arrive for work.
It read: “OMG. Girl, did I mention to you how hot and sex my Boss is. I would love to fuck his brains out ha haah. Too bad he seems not to like thick Latin women with lots to hold on to LOL.”
Kyle Martino expected an apology, a follow-up text making excuses for the excruciating faux pas — but nothing arrived.
He took his and Eva’s daughter out for breakfast and then returned home just after the time the nanny was expected to arrive for work to catch her peeking out from between the curtains — from their bedroom window.
He left the kid in her care and rushed off to work to escape the awkwardness, but couldn’t shake what had happened from his mind, so he decided to go home and confront the nanny — and record it.
