And now Zap2it can exclusively reveal to you the identities of the nannies:
Kristin Lancione is one of the top nannies in Beverly Hills and after learning the ins and outs of the Hollywood Elite, she is opening her own nanny placement agency. Always keeping an eye out for the next great nanny, Kristin looks to make sure her nannies and the families she works for are happy. She has previously been a nanny for actress Lori Loughlin.
Justin Sylvester brings with him Southern charm, sharp wit and a no-nonsense, often blunt, way of life. He previously has been a nanny and a “Ladysitter” for actress/reality star Kyle Richards.
Lucy Treadway is a natural with children and has grown up taking care of kids her whole life, so being a nanny comes as second nature. Known to be quite the chatterbox, she loves to sing and dance with her charges. She was also a top nanny choice for Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen.
Amanda Averill is the newest fish in the 90210 pond after recently relocating to LA from the Mid-West. Learning the ways of living Los Angeles and working for Beverly Hills families are definitely going to be an eye-opening experience for her.
Scott Cartmill is a woman’s dream – tall, good looking, Australian and excellent with children. This fact can get Scott into trouble at times with the Beverly Hills moms, but he shakes it off like a pro and always puts the kids first.
Shayla Quinn fell into the profession of being a nanny after helping a friend out one night and has loved it ever since. She loves bonding with the kids and is a stickler for manners and respect.
Shaun Sturz is one of the best and was even noted in LA Confidential Magazine as the top Beverly Hills Manny. Having worked for musician Kenny G for several years, he also writes children’s books and is known as “The Manny” on a popular parenting blog.
Amber Valdez is an aspiring TV show host, who uses her love of kids and the nanny business to pay the bills. She has been a nanny for actor/director/writer Nick Cassavetes and actress Heather Wahlquist.
Maggie Thorne is one of Kirstin’s best friends and is desperate to be a nanny. While Kristin loves her friend, she is not so sure Maggie’s partying ways would make being a nanny a good fit for her and the family Kristin sets her up with.
“Beverly Hills Nannies” premieres Wednesday, July 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
