Former Madonna Nanny Tell-All to Crown

Not two days after Entertainment Weekly reported on a proposal by Madonna’s former nanny, Melissa Dumas, making the rounds, Publishers Marketplace reports that a deal’s been struck for LIVE TO TELL: My Life as Madonna’s Nanny by Lindsey Moore at Crown. The September 2007 release went for “major deal” (aka $500,000 and up) money, and Sharlene Martin is the agent of record for the book, pitched as “an account of working in all four of the pop star’s homes and the details of her home life, including such matters as house rules (no noise-even running water — while Madonna is sleeping, and a ban on television, newspapers or magazines)”. In other word, a tabloid’s wet dream just sold for big bucks.
