There goes the Disney endorsements. The Wisconsin’s Potato & Vegetable Growers Association endorsements are still safe. They can't find anyone else.

Bizarre is right. SFH is a hooker...the Mayans must have been right!
Although I guess this is as good a time as any to remember that it takes two to tango and the shame is usually more reserved for the hooker than it is for the johns:(

$600 an hour seems cheap for a former Olympian.

She never even won a gold. What's the rate for gold medal winners?

Nice to see people aren't piling on. So to speak.

I'm very sorry that SFH took an apologetic tone in the WSJ story. She doesn't owe anybody an apology or explanation about her personal choices. I didn't like the "old devil depression made me do it" victimization spin. I question whether depression would have driven her to work as a $60/hour hooker.

If she wanted to make some serious cash as a call girl, I have no problem with that. Whatever thrills and bills she got out of the deal is fine with me, she's not hurting anyone, it's her business. And maybe the depression story is legit.

The PR spin job creeps me out, not the behavior.

Well, except for her family. That may be the reason for the apologetic tone.

Except her husband, her daughter, her parents.

The same people who think Visions and Silk are black marks on our area and are degrading to women, think what SFH did wasn't wrong or hurting anyone.

It's hilarious how many people are enabling her behavior.

(full disclosure, I have no problem with her hooking. In fact, might been a nice way to 'blow' some of my spending money. I just laugh at the hypocrisy of the public)

She's not hurting anyone? She's not hurting her husband? She's not hurting her 9-year-old daughter? She's not hurting the charities and corporations that have branded with her? You really believe that?

I hope this doesn't happen to other Olympians like Lolo Jones or Anna Tunnicliffe, winner of an Olympic gold medal in the women’s one-person dinghy event:
