Suzy Favor-Hamilton, who represented the United States in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Summer Olympics as a distance runner, has spent the last year as a high-end call girl in Las Vegas. From The Smoking Gun:
Beginning last December, Suzy Favor Hamilton, 44, has worked with one of Las Vegas’s premier escort services, booking scores of “dates” in Sin City and other U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston.
While Favor Hamilton has used an alias, “Kelly Lundy,” when working as an escort, she inexplicably shared her true identity with several male clients, believing that her secret was somehow safe with strangers who paid for her company by leaving envelopes stuffed with cash on bathroom vanities in swanky hotels.
Favor-Hamilton’s work as an escort is quite the diversion from the rest of her life.
Favor Hamilton described the escort business as “exciting,” an illicit midlife diversion from her routine existence, one in which she operates a successful Madison, Wisconsin real estate brokerage with her husband, delivers motivational speeches, and does promotional work for various businesses and groups, including Disney’s running series and Wisconsin’s Potato & Vegetable Growers Association.
I will never look at the Vegetable Growers Association the same way again.
Edit: Commenters keep bringing up the fact that she is married. If you don’t want to read the entire article at TSG, here is the portion that addresses that:
She said that only her husband Mark, 44, was aware of her escort work, but that, “He tried, he tried to get me to stop. He wasn’t supportive of this at all.” The couple lives in a $600,000 Madison home and appears to be in no financial distress based on a review of court and municipal records.
