On July 11, the fascinating world of babysitting for ridiculously wealthy families will finally be revealed, thanks to ABC Family's new docu-series Beverly Hills Nannies. Produced by the same company behind The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the show follows "the lives of a group of nannies working for families in the most exclusive zip code in the country." But not all families are famous; only a handful of casted nannies have worked for recognizable names.
Upon perusing each cast member's bio page, notable gigs include Justin Sylvester's stint as Real Housewife Kyle Richard's babysitter and "ladysitter" (?) and Shaun Sturz's six-year run as musician Kenny G's manny.
Lucy Treadway was almost Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller's nanny, but once she submitted her photo, Mueller reportedly rejected her and said, "Please only send me old nannies." Wow.
