You probably know me as the notorious “Hollywood Madame.” I regard it as a pop culture badge of honor. My exclusive client list, never revealed, looked like a Hollywood baby boomer Who’s Who. I served 21 months in jail. No regrets. What I did isn’t a real crime.
Unfortunately, my father, a prominent pediatrician, was disgraced by a money laundering conviction in connection with the business. It was a mean-spirited effort to disgrace my family. The judge saw it the same way and sentenced dad to one day in jail. A person I was glad to see convicted—my ex-boyfriend, actor Tim Sizemore, charged with domestic abuse and making criminal threats against me.
This is baby boomer gal has done OK for herself. No need to feel sorry for me. I sold the rights to my film story to Paramount for a cool five million. There’s been a documentary and made-for-TV film on my exploits.
I own a Laundromat named Dirty Laundry. I had hoped to open a Nevada brothel called Stud Farm. My plan was stated in a newspaper ad: “We will hire 20 men and 10 on stand-by. Lady customers will be charged $250.00 an hour that will be split 50-50 to the house. Men will be able to keep all tips. They will be charged a weekly rate for a housekeeper, room, board, and food. Weekly tests for STDS and HIV are mandatory.” Very sensible, I thought, but the project proved too difficult and time-consuming.
I still have visions of opening the establishment; this time it will be a replica of the White House. Ha! Ha! By the way, I stand by the statement I made years ago: Marlon Brando is the best sex partner I ever had. That’s when he was young and thin enough to Tango in Paris.
The only serious blotch on my record since the jail days was an arrest for possession of prescription drugs and driving under the influence. Who hasn’t? I’ve experienced some financial problems. For a while, I lived in a double-wide trailer with two dozen exotic pet birds. Trailer trash? Honey, my daily throwaways are more than you make in a year.
Recently, I was treated for substance abuse that was filmed for the third season of a popular reality show and, then for my relapse, Sober House with the same host. I’m now engaged to the owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Nevada. He got a good partner. I do know the business.
