Put the house up for sale !!!

They will probably get a buyer long before the Legal System figure how to handle this mess.

People love to buy homes with a 'history'.

I would have put these paws on her and dragged her out. This is my house. She would know the exquisite and decadent flavor of knuckles.

I wonder if Alice would have done this if the Bradys had fired her. 

It would have made the show expeditiously more interesting

I bet if her nanny was black they would have no problem getting her out. white nannies who get fired and want to squat got it easy. Let that be Henrietta who said she aint living. They would have called the fire department on her ass.

  • Diane Stretton, 64, left the Upland, California, home of her former employers early Thursday and never returned
  • All of Stretton's belongings remained in her room, leading the Bracamonte family to believe that their nightmare may not be over
  • The nanny was spotted Friday sitting in her car outside the local police station
  • Stretton has been squatting in the home of Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte after refusing to do any work citing an illness
  • Stretton was homeless for nine years before she got the job and was living in her silver Pontiac sedan 
  • A friend admits giving her a glowing reference and not mentioning she was homeless
  • Police have said that Stretton was invited into the home and has established residency
  • She is threatening to sue and wants them out of their own home from 8am to 8pm daily

By Snejana Farberov and James Nye and Hugo Daniel In Upland, California

Published: 13:16 GMT, 28 June 2014 | Updated: 15:27 GMT, 28 June 2014


The California ‘nanny from hell’ who made headlines by refusing to leave after getting fired has finally gone as it emerged Friday that the 64-year-old woman was homeless before being hired as a caretaker.

Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte, of Upland, said their children’s former babysitter, Diane Stretton, left the house early Thursday morning and never came back.

Mrs Bracamonte, a mother of three, said when Stretton took off at around 7am, she gave no indication that she was not coming back since all of her belongings stayed behind.

The family can only wonder at Stretton’s next move and are concerned that she may yet make a comeback, ABC News reported. 

On Friday night, the 64-year-old Stretton was spotted by KTLA cameras sitting in her car outside the Upland police station. 

Stretton refused to comment and instead concealed herself beneath a blue windshield cover.

The California family have found themselves in the extraordinary position of being unable to evict their live-in nanny after she refused to do any work around the house and to leave.

Mrs Bracamonte, 31, has claimed that Stretton has threatened to sue her family for wrongful dismissal and abuse of the elderly and incredibly, has told them she wants them out of their own house daily between 8am and 8pm.

Upland resident, Bracamonte, and her husband Ralph, hired Stretton March 4 using Craigslist to help with their three children, ages 11, four and one, but when they tried to evict her, police told them they could do nothing as it was a civil matter.

'The first few weeks she was awesome,' said Bracamonte to ABC News about her squatter. 'She would come places with us, help out the kids. She was really great.'

But overnight things changed for the stay at home mother and her electrical contractor husband.

'All of a sudden she stopped working, she would stay in her room all day and only come out when food was ready,' said Bracamonte.

The family recently started securing the doors of their refrigerator with a bicycle lock to prevent their unwelcome guest from eating their food.

MailOnline can now exclusively reveal that Ms Stretton was homeless and living in her car before she got the job with the Bracamontes.

Kimberly Whitcomb, a friend of the rogue nanny, told MailOnline: ‘She’s been homeless for about nine years.  She was staying in the homeless shelter (Path of Life) in Riverside.

‘She was struggling and looking for another place and I said check Craigslist, they always have all kinds of odd stuff on there.

‘She found the nanny job and I encouraged her to go for it.’

Kimberly,- who lived in the same apartment block as Stretton’s son, Michael, and began collecting her mail for her when he moved to Arizona, even provided a reference for her friend.

‘She got an interview with the lady and went out there and saw her. She used me as a personal reference and she had another friend from the shelter as a personal reference,’ said Whitcomb. ‘I spoke to the woman Marcella, I recommended Diane as a good person, as a nanny and as someone you can trust. 

‘She’s very professional, she’s got a master’s degree in something, I think it’s biochemistry. But she has health issues, osteoporosis and arthritis.’

Stretton recently lost her spot at the homeless shelter and was living in her car with a suitcase of her possessions.

‘The shelter is limited as to when you can go in there and they want the newest people on the street in there. So she lived in her car for days at a time. It could be for a couple of days at a time or it could be a week,’ according to Whitcomb. ‘She would park it in an empty lot somewhere like a grocery store or department store.

‘She has a Pontiac Grand Am, silver, four door. She had a suitcase with her belongings, to carry around for hygiene or whatever.’

Asked if the Bracamontes were aware Stretton was a homeless person, Kimberly said: ‘No, I don’t think so. They didn’t ask that and I didn’t volunteer it. I think she had been in her car a couple of days at least [when she got the job.

‘When she [Diane] got it she was real happy about being able to have her own place... she was like “I’m really glad I found this place, it’s a nice area.” She said it was nice and roomy. I think she did like the family, she said they gave her a hug and the kids were cute and all that.’

However, having seen the news reports about the family's anguish to have her leave – Whitcomb urged her friend to move out.

She said: ‘I think she should move out, but I don’t honestly know what the problem is.

‘It’s hard to defend her because I don’t know all the facts. It might have been a situation where they just got into a disagreement and it just accelerated out of control from there.

‘Maybe she’s battling some kind of depression or mental illness that we’re unaware of. There’s got to be something physical going on that’s affecting her emotionally that makes her unable to work and keep her promises.

‘She could be in a lot of pain. I would think she would want to go to the doctors and check it out and find out what could be done. I’m concerned for her.

‘She probably should be evaluated by a psychiatrist to find out what’s really going on.’

Asked where her friend would go when she is evicted, Kimberly Whitcomb replied that she would have to go back to the shelter or live in her car.

‘She’s got no property at all and she doesn’t have enough money to get whatever she needs. She is probably not wanting to go back.’

Stretton told Ralph and Marcella that she was suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and that she was unable to leave her room and help with the kids.

Initially concerned for her, the Bracamonte's decided that they couldn't have her living in their home anymore when she simply refused to do anything around the house.

However, serious problems began June 6 when they came to her with what they called a 'last chance letter', which outlined the terms of their initial agreement and threatening her with eviction if she continued to do nothing.

Stretton refused to sign it and said that she would be leaving in 30 days anyway as the stress of the job had become too much for her.

At this point, they asked the 64-year-old to leave and served her with legal papers, but Stretton counter-sued and a judge ruled in her favor because the Bracamonte's did not complete a three-day quit notice correctly.

'When I asked her why she wouldn’t sign the letter she said ‘It’s not legal,’ and slammed the door in my face,' Bracamonte told ABC News.

'Once she said the word legal, I knew it wasn’t going to be fun.'

Police told the Bracamonte's there was nothing they could do.

'They told me it was now a civil matter,' Bracamonte said, 'and I have to legally evict her,' said Marcella Bracamonte to CBS2.

'So this lady is welcome inside my house, anytime she wants,  to eat my food anytime she wants and harass me basically. I’m now a victim in my home and it’s completely legal.'

John Moore of the Upland Police Department confirmed to ABC News they cannot do anything at the moment because, 'generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process.'

Ralph Bracomnte said that his frustration is like a nightmare.

'Now, this person is in our house,' he said to CBS2, 'and I have to go to work. My kids are still here, my wife is still here. She towers over my wife, my kids. And I know there is nothing I can do about it.'

And as the Bracamonte's discovered, this was not the first time that Stretton has clashed in the courts with families - including her own.

She has been involved in 36 lawsuits, ensuring she has made California's Vexatious Litigant list, for abusing the system.

'Anyone who looks at her crooked, she sues,' said Bracamonte.

MailOnline visited Riverside County Court where several records of her cases are kept. Under her name are cases involving traffic accidents, estates, appliance purchases and even a rental car. Other claims involve disputes with family members.

In one claim from 1999 she claimed she was owed $5,000 from Taylor's Appliance Inc in Riverside because of ‘Damage to tile entry & kitchen floor & damage to refrigiator that occurred during delivery.’

The case was eventually dismissed in December 2000.

In a 2006 judgement she was deemed a ‘vexatious litigant’ because of her prolific filings.

Kimberly Whitcomb, her friend from the homeless shelter, revealed Stretton's marriage to her husband also named Michael ended acrimoniously over 10 years ago.

Kimberly said: ‘She was married and lived in Lake Forest where they raised their children. They had a nasty divorce it got really hostile and limiting and all his assets were put in somebody else’s name so she couldn’t get them.

‘They had two children one boy and one girl, the girl lives in Europe, she got a good degree and got married and lives in somewhere like Holland or France, she’s some kind of professor or something. She’s in her 20s, her son Michael is in his 30s.’

After her marriage fell apart, Stretton’s sisters had her evicted her from the condo where she moved.

‘From what she told me somehow her two sisters swindled her out of it,’ said Whitcomb. ‘Her dispute with her sisters was the only thing we ever talked about. It’s been years, she said she’s been homeless for about nine years and struggling to get this condo back through litigation.’

According to the friend, Stretton’s son would let her stay over sometimes (until he moved to Arizona in March) but she was largely homeless.

She said: ‘As far as I know they got along well, but it was a one-bedroom apartment and he was like, “Mom, I have a girlfriend, I need some privacy” kind of thing.

‘He was frustrated, didn’t know how to help her, he thought she should go and apply for housing assistance, do the senior route, but she was so determined to get her condo back you couldn’t tell her anything.’

Meanwhile, the Bracamontes’ next-door neighbor Linda Corbin, 57, said the nanny appeared unfriendly and elusive, and rarely went outside with the children.

'I’ve only saw her maybe once when I waved to her and she didn’t wave back,’ said Corbin. ,

When MailOnline visited the family's home on Friday they were inside with a crew from ABC News filming an exclusive interview and they were declining to speak to other reporters.

Marc Cohen, a newly hired lawyer representing the family, addressed the scrum of reporters and television cameras camped outside the house Thursday afternoon, saying that he will be going back to court next week to reapply to get Stretton evicted.

‘The notice that was served to Miss Stretton was defective, the complaint was also defective so they have to essentially start over at this point.

‘She’s a tenant, her belongings are here. She does have a right to possession; we would like to come to some sort of agreement regarding her moving out.

‘Legally, she does have a right to possession, to come in and out of the house, the landlord cannot cut off services, change the locks, anything like that.

‘The way an unlawful detainer (an eviction) works there either has to be a notice or grounds for terminating the tenancy. Here the tenancy was based on employment. Her employment has been terminated [and] at that point her tenancy has also been terminated with her employment, and we’re just asking her to leave.’

Asked how long it could take to get her out, Mr Cohen said: ‘It’s going to depend on how quickly the court process moves. Unlawful detainers, also known as evictions, can take anywhere from four to six weeks. If everything moves very quickly [but] if she really fights and gives us a hard time, it could take months.’

Mr Cohen revealed there was never a contract drawn up and the agreement between the Bracamontes and Stretton was verbal.

Asked how the family are coping, he said: ‘It’s very difficult having someone in your house who you don’t want there, who doesn’t want to leave and you can’t do something about it except going through the court process which takes a lot longer in California then people would like. Other states move much more quickly, states like Arizona usually you can get someone out in ten days.’

Cohen urged anyone thinking about hiring a live-in nanny off Craigslist to do their research and thorough background checks.

Many of the lawsuits had been filed by Stretton against her two sisters in an attempt to block the sale of family property.
