I picked up (or better downloaded) this book because I watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and it seemed fun to read about their lives before the TV show started.

But the book doesn't really tell all that much. On one hand I think it's good of Pam Behan to not air out the families dirty laundry but on the other hand...why write the book at all it you are not really going to tell anything? Most things she talks about are so general they could aply to any family. The kids come home from school a

I really enjoyed this book! This newest version has been totally rewritten and I like it much better. More stories and details have been added. It was so interesting to read a regular persons perspective of what it was like to be incorporated into the Malibu/Hollywood lifestyle. It was a very easy and light read! The stories of the other Hollywood people she interacts with were interesting, and I loved learning more about Bruce Jenner and what type of person he really is! There is a part in the ...more

If you're looking for dirt or anything juicy, you're going to be disappointed by this "tell all". I'm not even a fan of the Kardashians, however after watching the tv show "beverly hills nannies" I was in the mood for a little more gossip in line with what I had seen on that tv show. You know what I'm looking for, weird requests, late night confessionals, drama and children thrown in to this mix.

I get the feeling that if you've ever had any inkling of what the Kardashians are about, you've got t

The book was ok. I feel kinda bad giving it 2 stars only, but there are books I've liked far better that I have given 3 stars. It was an impulse download as I have kind of been on a memoirs reading trend lately. If you get past the part that it is a nanny trying to capitalize off of her time spent caring for the Kardashian-Jenner clan, she has some positive messages in the end. Although I'm not exactly a fan of the Kardashian reality series, it is commendable that she didn't totally slam them or ...more

Kind of sorry I wasted money on this book. Nothing more irritating than spelling errors, poor grammar and reading writing that seems like it was written by a ten year old. I have two stars because I liked the pictures.

This might actually be only 2.5 stars. I was excited about reading this b/c I love books about nannies and about Hollywood. I've read other books by star-nannies and while this one was okay at times, it generally wasn't great. And, for me, it was too religious at the end. I was frustrated by her poor choices with regard to her boyfriend(s) and the fact that she stayed in the nanny job too long.

I think that Linda Jenner came off as very nice to work for as did Bruce Jenner, however, Kris Kardashi

I read Malibu Nanny because of the hype surrounding it online (okay, or lack-there-of since the book hasn't been picked up). Online, there were statements saying it lacked anything juicy that would make it worth publishing. I agree 100%, it seems more of an autobiography of Pam's experience with the family, which she seems to think would be important to someone. The letters to her parents are silly, at best, and her touch with celebrity is nothing but a story of her past and a memory she can bra ...more

I love the Kardashians. I couldn't care less what people think about them but I am addicted to KUWTK and following their lives. I did find the idea for this book a bit trashy but was interested to read it. Well, after reading it I'm glad I did but for the most part it was a waste of time.

Pam was first the nanny of Brody and Brandon before Bruce took her with him when he married Kris and she then became the Kardashian nanny. The first 60 or so pages are about Linda Jenner, Brody and Brandon an

Never really watched or read about the Kardashians, but I'm a sucker for Nanny type novels. I found this to be a bit repetitive, but overall an interesting read.

My favorite passage from the book (and one I can identify with in my own Nannying experiences):

"I loved those kids, and it was truly hard to leave them. Yes, I was the hired help and I had done the job I had been paid to do. But it was so much more than that to me. I poured my heart into my job, and I poured my heart into them. I nurture

Crikey. Another chickadee I wanted to grow a set. She was being shamelessly used by her family - none other than the Kardashians. She should have been paid three times the amount she was and ensured she had a second nanny to give her a proper break. I doubt she ever stopped and looked after herself the entire time she was employed. Six years all up. That's a long time without a day off.

This book was actually very interesting. It's further proof that life in Hollywood is so different than anywhere else. Pam leaves her home in Minnesota for adventure and falls into a job as a nanny for Linda Jenner. The rest takes off on a crazy ride. I found Pam to be likable, which is why this book works. Definitely a fun read to see how the "other half" lives!

I saw an article about this book (which is a free download) earlier this summer, and downloaded it because I had read another "hollywood nanny" book a few months back that I actually really enjoyed. I was expecting some scandalous stories about the Kardashian kids, but was surprised that it was a rather sweet and innocent story about the nanny's experiences with the family. Nothing really surprising or scandalous. But it was refreshing that she didn't bash them, which everyone seems to do. I've ...more

Thoughtful

Not a huge fan of the Kardashians but I thought the story was well written. Pam portrayed her story as honestly as she could without being mean spirited or negative. You can see she had a love for the families.

A surprisingly good read. It is not a Kardashian bashing book as I expected it to be! It was more of a recount of Pam's own life!!!

I bought this book because I had read the sneak peak that came out last summer. This book contains a lot of new material, and shares Pam's journey before and after Hollywood. It was actually very good. I enjoyed hearing about Pam's life after she left the Jenners and Kardashians. She has been through some tough things - her father dying, infertility, and then single motherhood. It was also nice that the book was so positive. I'm tired of all of the negativity surrounding the Kardashians and Jenn ...more

Malibu Nanny is the memoir of the Jenner/Kardashian's careless, train wreck of a nanny. I read this book hoping for some gossipy details of young Kardashian life. The book seemed to be more about the mundane life of the nanny riding on the coat tails of Kardashian fame. (Seriously, she found out about the show when she saw a commercial.) She spices up the book with tales of dates with Sylvester Stallone and many failed marriages. Not what I expected from this book.

This book is a really fun read! I liked hearing stories about the family and, even more, about a Malibu nanny in the first place. Having some nanny experience of my own, it's fun to read about a nanny to a very wealthy family (at the time) connect to fame and glamour, but still share similar experiences to my nannying to a normal family. It's very easy to connect with Pam and enjoyable going through her experience with the Kardashians.

I really enjoyed hearing the stories from this "Kardashian Nanny". It is so refreshing to read a story about a famous family that is honest without spilling all the juicy details. But what I really liked was learning Pam's story. She is so much more than just the "Malibu Nanny". I definitely would recommend this as a great summer read. Looking forward to the author's future books!

I've never wanted to read any books about or by the Kardashiansm but I was inyrigued to read this one because currently i'm reading a book about hollywood nanny.

It's a tell-all but not entirely tell-all book. Pam didn't tell about anything juicy about what happened in the household.

Books with a few conflicts are flat.

It's a fast reading & entertaining, though.

Malibu Nanny is a fun, sweet, and easy read! I respect Pam for keeping the book postivie and sharing her stories. I enjoyed reading about her experiences going from a small town girl to Hollywood...in the 80's! Fun to see pictures too!

I really enjoyed this book. It's a light summer read. Once I started, I didn't want to stop. I didn't mind the religious portion as some mentioned in their review because this was a true experience and the religious portion was obviously a part of that. It was fun and light and thoughtfully written so as not to be an ugly, name smearing book. I appreciated that aspect. The authors didn't take the opportunity to slander anyone but simply wrote of Nanny Pam's experience. Well done.
