As anyone who has ever caught an episode of the TLC reality show Kate Plus 8 knows, Kate Gosselin is a big fan of discipline when it comes to her eight children, wanting to know everything and anything that is going on with them at all times in her house.
Of course, no person could handle that lot all by their lonesome, so Kate hires employees to help her around the house and make sure everything is in order. Unfortunately for Kate though, one of those former employees, a nanny, is spilling some secrets about what it's like living and working under Kate's roof. And it sure does sound interesting, to say the very least.
"We always had to refer to the manual because it listed her pet peeves," the nanny told E! News in a recent interview.
"You couldn't put anything on the ground. You had to put shoes in a certain spot. You couldn't close doors loudly. You could only vacuum during certain times of the day if she was home."
The nanny then explained that once the clock struck 9:00 pm all work had to be stopped immediately, whether it was finished or not, so Kate could head to bed.
The real bombshell however came when it was alleged that someone would listen in whenever one of Kate's kids spoke on the phone with her ex, Jon. It's like she has her own little NSA!
"When Jon called the kids on the phone, Kate said to us nannies, ‘You are Kate, so always listen in on the phone calls,'" the nanny explained.
"We always had to keep an ear and eye on what was going on. Kate would say she had no problem with the kids having a relationship with Jon, but it always felt like a façade to me."
In the end, this nanny finally said goodbye to it all when she watched Kate allegedly hit her son Colin with a spoon to punish him in front of his siblings.
A rep for Gosselin did not answer E! News' multiple requests for comment.
