Kim Kardashian's Malibu Nanny

Pam Behan opens up about keeping the faith in Malibu's material world

Kim's recent foray into motherhood has the Kardashian family in the limelight once again. The family stars in E! Network's show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," which has drawn over 4 million viewers at its height. The family has become famous for their loud, dynamic personalities, various entrepreneurial endeavors, and involvement with socialites and Hollywood A-listers.

The Kardashians don't display Christian faith publicly on the show, but TCW recently caught up with Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert's childhood nanny, Pam Behan, about the roles faith, prayer, and discipline played in the Kardashians' upbringing under her mentorship.

Because Kim just had her first baby with rapper Kanye West, TCW decided to catch up with the nanny who cared for, prayed for, and mentored Kim for five years in the late 90s to hear about the challenges of pursuing faith inside the walls of Southern California's beachfront mansions.

'Keeping up with the Kardashians'

When Pam began looking after the Kardashian kids, Kourtney was 11, Kim was 10, Khloe was 6, and Robert was nearly 4. Pam worked as their full-time live-in nanny, family cook, and as Kris' personal assistant, all while paying her way through school at Pepperdine on a half-scholarship. This made for a packed schedule, working from 5 a. m. until nearly midnight every weekday, and waitressing at a nearby restaurant on the weekends.

In the five years that Pam spent as the Kardashian nanny, she saw it all. From taking the girls out shopping for their favorite white baby tees (which became too small for wearing after just one round in the wash) to kicking Kourtney and her boyfriend out of her parents' bedroom during high school, Pam witnessed the all of the love, drama, and fashion that make the Kardashian family infamous.
