I don't know what took her so long, but a former nanny for the Kardashians has finally broken her silence. Pam Behan worked for the family for five years and was entrusted with the care of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob and reported to boss lady and mom in charge, Kris.
In an interview with Celeb Dirty Laundry, Pam reveals that Kris was a raging perfectionist who sometimes made her staff cry.
Color me shocked.
I had no idea Kris was a slave driver who only expected perfection from everyone and wouldn't take anything less. I had no idea she was demanding and over-bearing and "put a tremendous amount of pressure and stress" on herself and her family. I was so surprised to learn that her personality alone was enough to drive a person to tears.
I mean, you don't say.
Here's the thing. In a weird way, the nanny's news sort of vindicates Kris Jenner. If she wanted her kids to lead a perfect, privileged life and put that pressure on them when they were young (young enough to have a nanny, anyway), then I guess we can't really blame the fame for her totally mismanaged priorities.
Sounds like Kris has been nuts since day one, or as I'm sure they refer to it in the Kardashian household: BKST. Before Kim's Sex Tape.
So if Kris had already lost her mind BKST and was making the nanny cry way back when, I guess that means that her daughters' fame hasn't changed her dramatically.
I don't know if that makes it sadder or somehow better, but it would seem that she's been a nitpicking meddler her whole life, even before the cameras were around.
What do you think?
