Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton Works As Las Vegas Escort
"A three-time U.S. Olympian whose illustrious running career has included a Nike TV commercial, a swimsuit calendar, and ongoing promotional work for Disney has spent the last year doubling as a $600-an-hour call girl, an astounding secret life that she now regretfully calls a 'huge mistake.'
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."
I give Hamilton credit for not making any excuses, and owning up to her colossal mistakes. She didn't go the feminist claptrap route and argue that she was already being objectified and sexualized as an Olympic athlete, so she decided she might as well go all the way. She didn't say "Hey I did a swimsuit calendar and I shilled for Disney, how's that different from as a high-priced escort?"
Hamilton took full responsibility for her mistakes, and at no point has she claimed to be a victim.
Hamilton, who is married and has a 7-year-old daughter, should be lauded for not trying to weasel her way out of a sordid situation. However the public should think twice about buying Nike shoes or going to Disney World, why follow the advice of a whore? When the typical gentleman pays a streetwalker about $80 to service him, he doesn't follow her suggestion about where to dine.
As for her husband, he should kick his nasty wife to the curb, goodness knows how many STD's she has exposed him to, and not to mention the humiliation that is raining down on the family now.
To answer your question, hell yeah I'm judging, only a coward or a fool never expresses his opinion.
