Fired Live-In Nanny Won't Move Out Until Her Demands Are Met

Last week during Bandy's News Nuts we discussed the story of a live-in Nanny who was fired, and has been making a California family's life hell for the past month by refusing to leave.

Now 64-year-old Diane Stretton, known as the "monster nanny," has a list of demands that must be met before she will agree to move out.  Here's the list, published by The Daily Mail:

'Agreement: I will voluntarily agree to leave by 6pm on 7/6/14 if each and all of the following conditions are met:

1. My WiFi and TV and house air conditioning and water must be continuously on until I vacate. Electricity in my room must be operational.

2. Bathrooms must be stocked up with TP (toilet paper) and hand soap at all times.

3. Marcella and kids must vacate the premises between the hours of 8am and 5pm until 7/6/14 whether I elect to leave during the day or not.

4. Between the hours of 5pm and 8am, I have full access to my room, the garage bathroom and the areas of the house between the front door and my bedroom. I will not linger in these areas.

5. I'm either given access to healthy food or given $200 to eat out. Said access to food shall be limited to hours between 8am and 5pm.

6. Neither the front door nor my bedroom shall be locked in a manner than prevents me from entering. This means the chain must be off and the locks cannot be changed.

In exchanged [sic] for the above, I will agree not to seek any of my legal remedies for your past violations of our agreement.'

Stretton was hired by the Bracamonte family in March to take care of Marcella and Ralph's three young children, in exchange for room and board.  After a few weeks, Marcella said Stretton stopped working and barricaded herself in room, only coming out when food was ready.

The Bracamontes gave Stretton a "last chance letter" on June 6, to which Stretton responded by saying she was leaving in 30 days.  However, when the Bracamontes tried to get Stretton's 30-day notice in writing she refused to sign, stating "It's not legal."

In an interview with KTLA, Stretton says she's the victim because the Bracamontes cut off her cable and wifi, and restricted her access to the refrigerator.  She also claims the family tried to feed her dog food.
