Is Madonna’s Nanny Telling All?

Entertainment Weekly reporter Mike Bruno says he’s seen (or somebody at the magazine has, at any rate) a book proposal from a woman who claims to be Madonna’s former nanny. What’s in the 80-page document? According to the article, “sample chapters and chapter summaries provide a laundry list of alleged details pertaining to Madonna’s marriage to Ritchie, their children’s behavior, the family’s participation in Kabbalah, and the motivation behind Madonna’s decision to adopt a boy from Malawi.”

EW couldn’t get Sharlene Martin, the agent listed in the proposal, to confirm or deny that she was connected to it or even if she’s representing Melissa Dumas, the aspiring author. Let it be noted for the record, however, that Martin was the rep for Suzanne Hansen‘s You’ll Never Nanny in This Town Again, along with books by former tabloid reporter Marlise Kast and reality TV stars Kelly Perdew and Dawna Stone. Extrapolate from such data to form your own speculations until such time as we have anything more conclusive to report!
