Madonna's Nanny to Tell-All?

Madonna's Nanny to Tell-All?

Madonna may not be too worried if her new H&M designed clothing line will be a hit, but a new tell-all book may be making her nervous. A former long-time nanny is shopping her story with details about what it's really like to work for the family. Expect lots of inside dirt on her marriage, religion and the adoption that made major headlines. EW reports:

The document proposes a book that will reveal intimate information gleaned from Melissa Dumas' service as Madonna's nanny. Sample chapters and chapter summaries provide a laundry list of alleged details pertaining to Madonna's marriage to Ritchie, their children's behavior, the family's participation in Kabbalah, and the motivation behind Madonna's decision to adopt a boy from Malawi. The pitch also contains personal photos of Madonna's family, as well as photos of the alleged nanny playing with Madonna's kids.

Sounds juicy yet we have a feeling it will never come to press. Celebs have a way of making these things just go away.

yeah but if a really wealthy person is a complete and total bitch and uses her power to treat you like crap- i say that code is busted- cuz really that's the only way to get back at someone like that- break the fake bubble around them and show people what asses they are...

That's not right. I was a nanny for a woman with a lot of money (not famous) and I could literally write a book about my experiences there. But there's a moral code that you just don't do that. This woman was invited into their house to work and shouldn't be selling their personal life story to benefit herself.

man you people are quick to defend ms. thang. who knows? just because madonna's rich doesn't mean she treated this nanny well and who knows what kind of terms she left on. if she was a bitch to this nanny- i'm all for it...

It's sounds awful that Melissa Dumas a.k.a. The Nanny wants to do a tell all about her children. If it was a tell all about Madonna then that would be cruel but juicy. Lola, David, and Rocco well that's just sacred. We should just leave those kids alone. it's tough being Madonna Queen of the world kids. With that said really what would surprise you all about Madonna we don't imagine anyways. We have sort of had a insight to her life with Truth or Dare and I'm going to tell you a Secret. I'm sure Madonna is very strict as was her Father and well religious she is because she's always seeking a high power or understanding. She has been doing so through out her career. That her Marriage to Guy is tough.. Well duh she even said it herself it's work everyday and she married her husband for all the wrong reasons but would not trade it. I mean she has said she Has the Biggest Ego and needs to Change and at the end of the day when she's not performing she feels empty. Despite all this she's Human and Humans are not perfect.

Okay, so entirely unrelated, but isn't black supposed to be "chic?" When Posh wears all black she looks so put-together. Madonna just looks ridiculous here. Can't believe H&M wants to have her input on anything.

You know, it makes me really feel bad for celebrities. I know they choose that life but when you can't trust anyone and everyone is all about your business and making money off of it, it has to feel horrible. With that being said, she's Madonna and I'm sure she has some pretty hard hitting lawyers who will stop this if humanly possible.

As much as I love celebrity gossip, I would not buy this book if it made it to press. I don't want to read about Madonna's children. They are young and innocent and don't deserve to have their behavior exposed to the public. I'd read about Madonna's love life, her religious beliefs, stuff like that...but reading about how she raises her kids is a line that shouldn't be crossed. I hope Madonna and her lawyers stop this traitorous nanny before she does any harm.

mmm...why is everybody leaving out the fact that the nanny says she didn't received a confidentiality agreement UNTIL AFTER she quit???? how madonna didn't make her sign?? don't know..don't care... I would buy the book...or at least borrow it from someone... to say that i wouldn't touch it or does not interest me cause is a breach into someone's life or a horrible thing to do to madonna's privacy...would be a lie!

I'd pre-order that book today. I Love Madonna!!!! I started listening to her music when I was like 16-it brings back so many good memories. This woman is an ever-changing chameleon-there isn't a word in the english dictionary to exaggerate how "fabulous" of an entertainer she has been over the years.

hearing that the kids behavior is in there pissed me off. if i were madonna i would certainly have my lawyers look into this. the kids are not in the spot light for a living so i'm not sure this is legal. any nanny is going to have stories to tell, families say and do things in private that they don't say to the rest of the world; it's called a personal life for a reason. plus, wasn't this sort of already "done" with "nanny diaries"?

Just like princess diana's former butler. I mean NOT A ONE OF US would want the world to know the most intimate details of our day to life. And yet, these people just see dollar signs. I hope it never makes it to press. Some gossip/details, just aren't necessary.
