Wednesday Opinion: TV Nannies: the Good, the Bad, the Gorgeous and the Ugly
ABC’s new show Beverly Hill’s Nannies is creating a buzz on various networks. As Nannies are becoming more visible in the media Nanny X decided it was time to review the Good, the Bad, the Gorgeous and the Ugly!
Jo Frost hits #1 as the best media representation of what a Nanny should be: savvy, smart, affirmative and experienced, she’s also an excellent example of how a fuller figure = sexy.

ABC has given childcare’s image a real boost with it’s awesome new show Beverly Hill’s Nannies. ABC scores some major points for its diversity choice in Manny Justin Allen Sylvester, a gorgeous young African American man. But pssssst! ABC … we’d love to see more Latina, Asian and African-American women on your show! Plus a little more age and body size diversity next time!
Nominating ugly was never going to be a tough choice and as much as I love Nanny McPhee’s approach to childcare, her first impressions leave a lot to be desired.
