Did George Lopez Cheat On His Wife With Hookers?

Et tu, George? The National Enquirer is reporting that George Lopez is the latest Hollywood slimeball to cheat on his wife- and not just with some tattooed tramp, but with hookers! What makes the Enquirer’s allegations even more disturbing is that George’s wife, Ann Serrano Lopez, saved his life in 2005, by giving him one of her kidneys after he needed a transplant due to a deteriorating genetic disease.

Sex And So Much More. The Life Of An NYC Hooker.

"Sex is everywhere in The Girlfriend Experience, except there's no sex," one critic commented. "We come to understand that Soderbergh is less interested in sex work than he is in work." And so it seems The Girlfriend Experience really is a movie based upon the relationships, not the raunchy bits, of Manhattan's highest paid hookers.

Details Emerge About Eliot Spitzer's Hookergate

The New York Daily News' Rush and Molloy gossip column somehow found a previous Eliot Spitzer charge, Annie, and shook her down for intimate details of the affair. It turns out Spitzer was rough and aggressive during sex. wanted a scenario where I was supposed to say I had just been to a self-defense class. He was supposed to respond, 'Let's see if you learned anything. He would be aggressive. I would have to defend myself. When he arrived, he took off his jacket but kept on his shirt and tie. His demeanor was nice, but I don't remember any kissing or tenderness. He wanted to get on with the role-play," Annie told the paper. He also kept his socks on.

Does The "Other Woman" Owe You an Apology?

I've been in the infidelity situation from all angled: the cheated upon, the cheater, the cheatee. My experience at the tender age of 17 as the cheated upon has clearly informed my ethics in this matter. Responsiblity counts. As the cheater, I've apologized. As the cheatee, I haven't, but I would if I was ever confronted. Maybe it's naive of me to compare two horny high school students with former NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer, a married public figure and father of three children. I do realize the two situations are not comparable at all. But I think what any "woman scorned" wants is remorse. Does that mean all call girls and strippers should apologize to the wives and girlfriends of the men who see them? No, that would be impossible. But high class call girl Ashley Dupre became famous due to Client Number Nine and surely not a day goes by where Silda Spitzer does not think about her. The ex-governor has said "I'm sorry" to his wife countless times; now Ashley Dupre really has no other choice but to show remorse as well. So I think it's responsible, respectable -- a little bit classy, even -- for Dupre to give a remorseful shout-out to scorned wife, Silda Spitzer, on 20/20. Gawker reports that during her interview with Diane Sawyer, to air on Friday, Dupre offers Silda Spitzer a simple, "I'm sorry for your pain." It's not much, but it's something. And in a situation where there don't seem to be many clear "winners," that seems to be enough.

Prostitution: A Recession-Free Gig?

Prostitutes with middle-of the road prices seem to be practically recession-free in a bad economy. While the more expensive hookers may feel the pangs of a faltering Wall Street, the more reasonable ones are enjoying a stable and steady job as prostitutes.

A Soccer Stud And The 3 Shemales

Ronaldo (not to be confused with Ronaldinho or Cristiano Ronaldo) got caught in an Eddie Murphy-esque predicament involving 3 crossdressing prostitutes a week or so back. You may know the Brazilian soccer star from his fantastic work as AC Milan's striker before he hurt himself). At any rate, one of the prostitutes alleges that there was drug-use and sex involved. Ronaldo claims that no such sex or drug use happened and he turned the hookers in to the fuzz when they threatened him with blackmail (or possibly Brazilian-male).
