Eva Amurri was distraught to discover that her nanny had sent an inappropriate text to her husband, Kyle Martino, prompting the 30-year-old actress to fire her new employee. Recounting the incident on her website, HappilyEvaAfter, she says the couple had just hired the unnamed woman three weeks earlier to care for daughter Marlowe.
Eva - the daughter of Susan Sarandon - said the nanny sent a sexually explicit message to Kyle while the star was out of town. It was written about Kyle as if to a friend, and he initially thought it was a mistake.
"An hour before she was supposed to arrive for the day, Kyle got a text message from her which showed up on his cell phone," Eva said, before revealing details of the explicit message. "Kyle couldn't believe it. He was completely disorientated. Why had she sent this to him? It was such a crazy 'mistake', but also strange because he had barely been around this person since she was hired."
Kyle immediately confronted the nanny and fired her. "Clearly the text was not a mistake. If it had been a mistake, she would have been humiliated, so frantic to make it right. That text was sent as a missive to test the proverbial waters with my husband and give her an opportunity later, when alone, to bring up a sexy dialogue with him," Eva added.
"Need more evidence? She sent it the only morning she had that his wife was out of town. I felt a lot of things as I listened to this. I felt anger, I felt pride in my husband for being so loyal (and smart) and handling it well, and I felt a huge betrayal also.
"How dare this person, who we were paying very generously to care for our young daughter – how dare she use her time with my child, in my home, to plot out a way to...screw up my family! It was beyond psychotic."
