Rosie O'Donnell in the nanny club? I think not.
Nannies: The new must-have accessory?: What's with all the celebs who hook up with the nanny? I didn't realize Rosie had joined the Jude Law-Ethan Hawke club too. -- from last week's Celebritology Live chat.
Hmmm, maybe we should shut this one down before it picks up traction. I'm not sure where you got your information, pardner, but Rosie has been married to Kelli Carpenter -- a former Nickelodeon exec -- for the past five years. And, despite last week's news that the two have separated and will likely embark on a complicated and closely-watched divorce, I haven't seen anything attributing the split to infidelity or anyone getting overly friendly with the help.
But, if you're jonesing for a list of celebs who have made a love connection at home, here's a definitive run down -- in no particular order:
-- Ethan Hawke was generally labeled a king-sized loser when he split from wife Uma Thurman to take up with Ryan Shawhughes, nanny to the then-couple's two children. It should be noted that Hawke says the relationship did not start until after his split from Thurman. He and Shawhughes married in June 2008 and have a child of their own, Clementine Jane Hawke, now a little over a year old.
-- Jude Law solidified his reputation as a ladies' man when, in 2005, one of his kids caught him cheating on fiancee Sienna Miller with nanny Daisy Wright. Although Law lost Miller (who he blamed for driving him into the nanny's arms) and didn't pursue a long-term relationship with Wright, the latter eulogized their brief affair thusly: "It was mind-blowing rampant sex. He is a great lover and he knows how to satisfy a woman."
-- Robin Williams, sly dog that he is, married Marsha Garces -- his son's nanny -- in 1989. At the time, Garces was already pregnant with the couple's first child. Last year, Garces filed for divorce from Williams, citing irreconcilable differences.
-- Long-time nanny to Michael Jackson's kids, Grace Rwaramba, was rumored to be his secret girlfriend -- despite the fact that she was married not just once, but twice, while in his employ. Rwaramba maintains that the two were just friends. I'm inclined to believe her.
-- Nanny Stephanie Santoro claims she had a brief fling with class act Jon Gosselin -- father of eight and Ed Hardy victim -- shortly after his separation from wife Kate. At the same time, Gosselin was also linked to a tabloid reporter and Hailey Glassman, the young daughter of his wife's plastic surgeon.
