£200,000 a year on 'parental outsourcing' but one of her three children have car seats.
And her chauffeur doesn't seem to know what a seatbelt is.

Money can't change stupid.

I am going to watch this on catch up as I'm at work but I know it will make me mad.

PassTheCremeEggs Mon 05-Sep-16 22:18:21

I'm watching. I wonder if the people featured knew what the title of the programme would be before they agreed to do it? It's obviously designed to be fairly judgmental and the title doesn't leave anything to the imagination in that sense!

I'm watching

Oh how the other half live ey?

Watching this makes me appreciate my children more. They may not have the best, but they love everything they do have

But apparently stupid enough to want to go on a programme like this.

What channel is this on?

Sootica Mon 05-Sep-16 22:21:36

I read an article with one of the women featured and she said she did not know the title of the programme and she did not know it was going to have this angle! That said she did admit she was fairly represented!

I have had to turn over. My Piss started boiling.

She wants a spiritual skier. Who doesn't?

£2k to potty train a child?!?

Smartiepants79 Mon 05-Sep-16 22:25:06

Channel 4.
Can't get over the car seats!
Vegan, yogic, no cakes, sweets or fun in that house by the sounds of things! Working for her would be awful.

ShatnersBassoon Mon 05-Sep-16 22:28:35

It cost me about £10 to potty train my children. £5 for a potty and £5 for carpet shampoo.

I'd happily hire myself out to be a glorified arse-wiper for £2k a pop (£1,990 after costs).

"They went mental for two hours"

Omg they behaved like children!

JenLindleyShitMom Mon 05-Sep-16 22:31:08

Thanks OP.

shatners grin I think you're onto something!

Soubriquet Mon 05-Sep-16 22:34:26

"They don't even know the word Fanta"

Must be a mnetter

livvylongpants Mon 05-Sep-16 22:35:11

I'm loving the sly Fanta kids!

Eyedrophell Mon 05-Sep-16 22:35:11

Ha ha, sorry but she gave them Fanta! That made me giggle.

Eyedrophell Mon 05-Sep-16 22:35:47

Crossed posts with others!

raspberrysuicide Mon 05-Sep-16 22:35:56

Lol at the fanta! The children told her they have it all the time of course they know what it is!

livvylongpants Mon 05-Sep-16 22:36:39

The look on those girls faces, they blatantly. Know what Fanta is.

I bet somewhere there's a grandma sneaking them cake and pop

Pinkerbeller Mon 05-Sep-16 22:37:24

My heart is breaking for Connie the nanny, she's had more time with those kids than her own. The world sucks sometimes sad

MadameCholetsDirtySecret Mon 05-Sep-16 22:37:53

The Fanta mother is setting the nanny up to fail. She should have told her clearly what she expected why didn't she show the nanny how much food to serve, and ask for a salad? Nasty.

228agreenend Mon 05-Sep-16 22:38:27

Love these programmes,even though they wind me up. I'm sure I've seen the mum with the Phillopino nanny on other programmes like this. Felt sorry for the Phillopina nanny, missing out on her own children's lives.

228agreenend Mon 05-Sep-16 22:39:55

I did think the ski nanny served huge portions. Surely she should have known better. The salad comment was a little rude.

Nothing new about being too posh to patent. Royalty have been at it for generations. I was watching the Tudors recently, not much parenting from Henry or his wives.
