Susan Sarandon's daughter, Eva Amurri Martino, claims she almost had her own "nannygate" with her husband Kyle Martino. Luckily for all those scandal-obsessed people out there, Eva wrote about the entire "awkward" experience on her blog, "Happily Eva After."
"Grab some popcorn and a cocktail because this story is trashy– really trashy," the actress and lifestyle blogger prefaced the tale.
According to Eva, it all started when she was coming back from quick 24-hour business trip to New York City. After feeling "exhilarated" by her "little jaunt away from my Mommy responsibilities," she called up her husband to check in on their daughter Marlowe.
"Don't panic," he told her. "But I had to fire the Nanny this morning. Let me tell you the whole story before you freak out."
Apparently, Kyle received an "accidental" text from the nanny that read: "OMG. Girl, did I mention to you how hot and sex my Boss is. I would love to f--k his brains out ha haah. Too bad he seems not to like thick Latin women with lots to hold on to LOL."
When the nanny failed the send a follow-up "Oh my gosh I'm so sorry/embarrassed" type of text before the start of her next shift, Eva revealed that Kyle was dreading the confrontation. When he and his daughter came back from having breakfast, the nanny had already started her shift.
"She had a key to our house," Eva wrote. "It was 9:05 and by this point she had let herself in. As Kyle went up the walkway to our home, he looked up at the house and saw her– peeking out of the curtains OF OUR BEDROOM WINDOW."
Eva recalls that when her husband was recounting this tale, her inner "teenager" from Brooklyn started to come out and she suddenly had an urge to "take [her] earrings out and hold them while [she] got CRAZY." (We're not sure how "CRAZY" Eva's life really was while growing up as the daughter of an Academy Award-winning actress, but for all intents and purposes, sure.)
We hate to say it, but in the end, nothing scandalous really happened. Kyle recorded his conversation with the nanny when he fired her and all she responded with was "OK" and that she was "just messing around with a friend" when she sent him that text.
"How dare this person, who we were paying very generously to care for our young daughter– how dare she use her time with my child, in my HOME, to plot out a way to screw my husband and screw up my family!" she blogged. "It was beyond psychotic. It was something that exemplified a truly broken person and that realization made me feel almost badly for her. Almost."
Eva concludes that she's "grateful" that the experience happened because it confirmed the "strong relationship" that she has with her husband.
"I know that this happens all the time with different results," Eva said. "The rumors of this type of thing are all over the tabloids all the time. As I was thinking about this, I also realized something bone chilling: I no longer had childcare."
