We guess we just never imagined an Olympian would go into sex work. Doesn’t every athlete get sponsored by Wheaties for the rest of their natural lives? We guess not, seeing as how ESPN reported today that three-time Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has admitted on Twitter that she’s also been working as an escort. Even more intriguingly, Hamilton claims she was “drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life.” Wow, the things we don’t know about stuff. Of course, we can’t pretend we don’t know a lot about celebs and sex work. Don’t worry, Suzy. You have plenty of interesting company when it comes to celeb escort scandals…
Suffering from a severe case of Rich Person Reality Blindness, Jenny Mollen Biggs talked to Playboy’s The Smoking Jacket about her husband Jason Biggs’ prostitute encounter in Las Vegas for his birthday. According to Mrs. Biggs, she and the American Pie star ran into a comedy of errors while trying to purchase the services of a lady of the evening (miscommunication, ATM mishap) before settling on a sex worker named Keisha. You guys know a pie only costs about $10 at the store, right? You guys also know this story makes you seem like two profound creeps, right?
Unfortunately for them, but fortunately for anyone with eyes and the ability to read, the American Reunion star suffered performance anxiety and was unable to go forward with the evening’s planned activities. According to Mollen, their guest for the evening couldn’t have been nicer. “She lightened the mood by saying, ‘Look, see? Your husband must really love you. He couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even stay excited by the idea of another woman,’” she writes. And now that we know this, you have to know it too. We just couldn’t be the only ones! We’re so sorry!
Apparently when Charlie Sheen scoffed “A guy has one bad night and everyone goes insane, panics,” he meant everyone but the NYPD. Earlier today, Charlie Sheen was cleared of criminal charges stemming from that October 25 hotel room trashing, when we all learned more than we wanted to about how Charlie conducts his personal life. Following the incident Sheen’s companion for the evening, porn star Capri Anderson, pressed charges against the actor, alleging that Sheen held her against her will on their room at the Plaza Hotel while on a drug-fueled rant. Or as Charlie might put it, “literally every Monday night.”
Sheen was also not charged at any point with cocaine use or ransacking his hotel room, despite the fact that he did so much of both. Sheen then went back to his role on Two And A Half Men, where he is allowed to interact with a child and be broadcast into millions of decent people’s homes. [Photo: Getty Images]
We know that James Franco’s gay prostitute story is only going to fuel rumors that our future husband is gay, but lordy, how we don’t care right now. While on Inside the Actor’s Studio this week, Franco explained that he was hanging out with a gigolo named Sonny to prepare for a role and, well, “He took me on one of his jobs.” We didn’t even have to turn that into a double entendre to make it filthy! Our favorite part of the video is when James Lipton screams, “We certainly do!” as he encourages Franco to tell the story. In that one moment, James Lipton represented the America public: one classy, bespectacled voice screaming for all.
Said a bashful James, “So I did…and it went down. Everything went down like you see in the movies.” Not only is James Franco intensely dedicated to his craft, but we both like the same movies! So, just to recap: James Franco watched a gay prostitute have sex with a client, and then talked about it on Inside the Actor’s Studio. We don’t know which part is making our brain explode more. Okay, yeah we do: it’s the gay sex part.
