Dorit Kemsley On Why She Needs So Many Nannies


Romper.com:
When Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiered on Dec. 6, many long-time viewers immediately took note of the new face among the crowd of familiar uber-glam (and uber-dramatic) housewives. Dorit Kemsley was introduced on the series' latest season premiere as the wife of Paul "PK" Kemsley, an English businessman. Right off the bat, Dorit's somewhat surprising number of nannies was highlighted by Bravo as one of the notable things about the fashionable socialite. But exactly how much do Dorit Kemsley's nannies earn?

Information about the exact salaries that Dorit's nannies make isn't widely available, but as all parents know, quality childcare doesn't come cheap — particularly for around-the-clock care and for very young infants. Given Dorit's busy multiple careers, it's no wonder that she's hired several childcare professionals to watch her children so that she can work — after all, fathers are free to work full-time without judgment, and why shouldn't mothers be allowed to do the same?

Dorit and PK have two young children, which includes their son Jagger and their daughter Phoenix. Dorit's rather large childcare and house staff was one of the first things that Bravo mentioned about the newest housewife addition, in their sneak peek at the currently airing season of the long-running RHOBH. But Dorit was quick to address and defuse any shade that might've been thrown at her about the seemingly excessive amount of help her family relies on.

"Currently, my staff includes Peggy, who's baby nurse, Neila, Jagger's main nanny, and then I've got a few nannies for Jagger and Phoenix—to fill in—three full-time housekeepers, and Tiffany, who's my husband's assistant," Dorit explained to E!. "For those who will criticize me for having a big staff," she clarified, "I'm not exactly lounging in bed eating bonbons."

While that certainly might seem like a lot of extra hands, if the Kemsley's can afford the help, why not get it? Based on Dorit's Instagram account, which is filled with pictures of both parents doting on their children, it's clear that the couple spends plenty of quality time with their babies.
