It’s a little hard to feel sorry for Mike Ovitz, the former CAA überagent who was paid a reported $140 million upon leaving Disney in 1996. Yet Suzanne Hansen — however unwittingly — makes it entirely possible. A starstruck teen from Oregon who entered Ovitz’s home as a live-in nanny for his three kids, Hansen now shamelessly attempts a Hollywood tell-all/Nanny Diaries rip-off in You’ll Never Nanny in This Town Again. She paints Ovitz as a persnickety, soulless dad who supposedly blackballed her after she quit. (She went on to work for Debra Winger and Danny DeVito, who are spared her criticism.) Trouble is, her complaints — e.g., Mrs. Ovitz rarely let her use the family car for personal errands — seem petty after the couple regularly showered her with praise and freebies (a free meal at Spago, front-row Lakers tickets). Tough job if you can get it.
