Can you imagine nannying for the first family of reality television? Think about having Kris Jenner — one of the most powerful, influential, and demanding moms in Hollywood — giving your daily marching orders. It’s hard to come up with a more stressful family to care for.
The woman who actually had this job in the ’90s, Pam Behan, did literally everything for Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob, and now she’s spilling more secrets than ever in an upcoming episode of Scandal Made Me Famous focusing on Kim’s rise to celebrity.
But as a juicy sneak peak, the woman who raised the reality stars for five years has let slip a few quotes about her time with the family, and unsurprisingly, it turns out that Kris is the exact type of demanding perfectionist that could springboard an entire family into international stardom.
Look below for some of the best tidbits from Pam’s interview!
She is also a Pepperdine graduate!
On top of caring for the children, she was in charge of cooking for the family and was Kris’ personal assistant. What a list of duties!
But obviously it wasn't always easy.
“I liked Kris, and I respected her for many reasons,” says Pam. But “she was not easy to work for because she was a perfectionist, and she expected perfection.”
It sounds like the world-famous momager demanded a lot and wasn’t afraid to unleash a verbal tirade if she wasn’t pleased with Pam’s performance.
“On a daily basis,” explains Pam, “when she has a very long list and you’re fighting LA traffic and taking kids to their events, and maybe possibly not everything on the list gets done, there were a few moments where I got an earful.”
“At first, I used to be just crushed when she would speak to me like that,” continues Pam. “But she vents; she speaks what’s on her mind.”
If you’re interested in diving deeper into Pam’s insights about the family, you don’t have to wait for the episode of the show. Pam previously published a memoir called Malibu Nanny: Adventures of the Former Kardashian Nanny.
But maybe the biggest takeaway is that Pam didn't totally mind Kris' demeanor.
“She wasn’t easy to work for,” says Pam, “but I did enjoy my job.”
And the attitude that made Kris a pain to work for certainly has paid off.
One of the most fun parts of this story, however, has been the reactions, because they’re almost unanimously screaming:
This is literally every thread about the nanny’s description of Kris.
Because really, what else did you expect from the most powerful woman in reality television?
We wish we could find a well-spoken and insightful commentary in the comments on Twitter, but the fact is that literally everyone expected this from the momager extraordinaire.
That said, a few people did get creative and use more than words to describe their nonreaction to the news that Kris Jenner demands perfection.
While we’re glad we can confirm that yes, Kris is an absolute boss, there’s a fair amount of “Duh!” going around right now.
But this is probably our favorite reaction of all, because it simultaneously showcases Kris’ character flawlessly while accurately depicting how the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner family is going to react to her former nanny spilling the beans!
