Three-time Olympic runner Suzy Favor-Hamilton has confessed that for more than a year, she led a double life in Las Vegas as one of the most in-demand, expensive companions. By day, she was America’s sweetheart, a mom and caring partner, however when she flew into Sin City by night, she became a $600-an-hour companion for Haley Heston’s model agency.
In a lengthy interview Wednesday with Jami Rodman, aka as Haley Heston, she specificed the ventures of her classy sexual company that ruled the world’s oldest occupation.
It will certainly all be released this December in a brand-new book about sex and hookers in Las Vegas: “The Las Vegas Madam: The Escorts, The Customers, The Truth.” A few of the individual rates for sexual experiences ran as high as five figures for 24-hour dates.
Among Haley’s most-sought-after escorts was Suzy, who utilized the name Kelly Lundy. In her memoir “Fast Lady: A Life Spent Running From Madness,” the champion track-and-field star exposes that everything started when her hubby, Mark, and she chose to celebrate their 20th anniversary in Las Vegas by jumping out of an airplane– and also working with a woman of the street for a threesome.
She later confesses to an affair with a Las Vegas chef and making love in broad daylight on a Las Vegas golf course two times, with one client pulling up her skirt on the final hole for “a really adult version of miniature golf.”
Suzy, who once stayed in Las Vegas full-time, blames the antidepressant Zoloft that she was considering a misdiagnosed depression for making her “hypersexual.”
She stated: “The threesome was so simple, and the high I felt also added to the drug. Something changed in me. It was a real euphoric high working with a sex worker. I’m not blaming the drug for what then progressed in six months from a threesome to hiring my own male hooker to then becoming a Las Vegas companion woman of the street.
“I was connected. I ‘d never ever made love with another guy besides my husband. It ended up being the most fabulous experience, and he stated that I had to do it more. I decided I, too, could make money for sex. It would be fun. That was the minute that it all changed.”
In her book, Suzy says that she took the drug the whole time she was an escort right here: “I had no restraints. I was on top of the world. I was elated. It made me feel unbelievable. I started to become delusional. It was just when I was outed by a tabloid site that I found with doctor care I was bipolar. When you’re bipolar, it’s a double whammy.”
Suzy is still wed to Mark and still friends with escort company owner Jami. Suzy actually motivated Jami to write her own book, which I reported on Wednesday. Suzy explained that her partner frantically wanted her to end her commutes to Las Vegas for sex.
“Picking up guys in Las Vegas … the gigolo belonged to the development. We were having marital problems, I was getting random males, so we talked about having an open relationship. I told him about the accompanying and that I wanted to take this high to the next level. I was just going to sample it, however when I jumped into that world, I was connected right away.
“I was drawn to accompanying in large part because it offered numerous coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a really difficult time with my marriage and my life. It offered me an escape from a life I was having a hard time in.”
Suzy states that she was outed while participating in the Las Vegas Rock-and-roll Marathon here while she was staying at Palazzo.
“I composed the book due to the fact that I am an advocate now for the misunderstood. Zoloft played a huge function in exactly what I did. I take complete responsibility for exactly what I did. I do not blame the drug. It was simply the best storm. I knew exactly what I was doing.
“I do not feel shame since I do not want to feel shame from having mental disorder. I don’t shame the other women in that industry if this is the choice they want to finish with their body. They have every right to make that choice. I still have buddies in that market to this day. They’re good individuals.
“I understand that I made extremely unreasonable choices and take full obligation for them. I am not a victim right here and understood what I was doing. I ‘d never ever go back, though, to sex work. It’s not for me. The bipolar was ruining my life and harming individuals around me. “
Zoloft’s producer, Pfizer, said in a declaration: “Countless clients and their prescribers have actually chosen Zoloft for more than Twenty Years for the treatment of anxiety and other psychiatric conditions. Zoloft is not approved for usage in treating bipolar anxiety, and the products label states that prior to treatment, patients need to be adequately evaluated to identify if they are at danger for bipolar disorder.”
Suzy added: “I do not expect people to understand, however the factors for doing it made good sense to me at the time. I have been working with a psychologist. I can not emphasize enough how sorry I am to any individual I have injured as a result of my actions. I fully plan to make amends and get back to being a good mom, partner, child and friend.”
Suzy started her running profession when she was age 9. She went on to win four UNITED STATE Outdoor Track and Field Championships and three indoor all at the 1,500-meter stage. Suzy competed in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Summertime Olympics.
In her narrative, she blogs about jetting into Las Vegas from her house in Madison, Wis.: “By the time I touched down, the improvement was nearly total. Off came the track shoes and on went the stilettos. Off came the sweater to flaunt the tank top.
“I might feel the lights of Las Vegas awaiting me, rising into the sky to welcome me home. To welcome Kelly home. She wanted to come out in all her hot, enjoyable, manipulative magnificence. I felt so big and sparkly, I could hardly stay in my seat. It felt so little and restrictive. I’ll show them how attractive I am and that I have all the power.
“I never ever was meant to be Suzy Favor-Hamilton. Get me off this aircraft, I am so prepared to be the real me. This is who I am. My body shone with enjoyment. I desired more. This was way much better than winning a race, much better than contending in the Olympics.”
Jami Rodman, the owner of the companion website we introduced to you Wednesday, stated: “She called me. She stated she wished to try escorting. I was really hesitant at first since I knew she had a husband, however she kept firmly insisting that he was fine with it.
In a “20/20” episode broadcast Sept. 10 on ABC, the “Golden Woman” admitted to one day running a half-marathon in the early morning, then flying here where “I had five consultations. I had 5 customers lined up for money for sex the exact same night.”
Now 47, Suzy says that she had a pressing appetite for sex, danger and to become the top-ranked call girl in Las Vegas. Today, she still resides in Wisconsin with Mark and their 10-year-old child, Kylie.
Given that being outed three years back, she says the numbness relied on pain– “not a bad thing,” she mentions. “The first year of my recuperation was terrible. It was the hardest, however I understand it wasn’t Suzy. I keep trying to emphasize that wasn’t me. I have so much emotion.
“I got emotion back, and that’s a sign of me getting healthy. If I weren’t bipolar, I would not have actually found my voice to live my truth, inform my story, and I wouldn’t be here to help others to know they are not alone.”
