Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton’s Life As A High-Priced Las Vegas Hooker Revealed

For the last year runner Suzy Favor Hamilton, a 3 time U.S. Olympian and 9 time NCAA individual champion, worked for Haley Heston’s Private Collection escort service as a $600/hr prostitute under name Kelly Lundy. The Smoking Gun broke the story today ending her new career.

[W]hen 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.

When approached by a reporter earlier this month in the lobby of a Las Vegas hotel, Favor Hamilton initially denied any connection with the escort service, Haley Heston’s Private Collection. But Favor Hamilton–who is married to her college sweetheart, a lawyer, and is the mother of a seven-year-old girl–eventually acknowledged her work as “Kelly.”

“I take full responsibility for my mistakes. I’m not the victim and I’m not going that route,” Favor Hamilton said. “I’m owning up to what I did. I would not blame anybody except myself.” She added, “Everybody in this world makes mistakes. I made a huge mistake. Huge.”

Favor Hamilton expressed concern that her story would be “sensationalized” by a reporter. It is hard, though, to imagine how that could occur. The actual events of the ex-Olympian’s past year already seem like the fever dreams of a Lifetime producer who decided to adapt Luis Bunuel’s “Belle de Jour” for basic cable.

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.

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.

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. What a surprise that her husband wasn’t really keen on the idea…

Here are her escort photo’s from her now deleted profile.

    The actual events of the ex-Olympian’s past year already seem like the fever dreams of a Lifetime producer who decided to adapt Luis Bunuel’s “Belle de Jour” for basic cable.

    That is the most amusing and literate sentence I’ve read in awhile.

    Most women have a price anyways.

    Either the husband is kinky or is a big wimp.

    • ackwired

      Couldn’t agree more about the husband! This must be a strange marriage!

      • herddog505

        Agreed. Must make for interesting moments when the question, “Hi, honey; how was your day?” is asked.

        • jnboisvert

          “Hi, honey, how was your lay?” he asked

  • The_Weege_99

    What’s the big deal? A lot of Olympians turn pro.
    Oh… not that kind of pro. Nevermind.

  • marcello1818

    Disgusting!!! I can understand, but I don’t accept, somebody who’s poor. But this woman is rich, famous, married and a mother?!?!?!

  • herddog505

    I honestly don’t quite know what to make of this sort of thing. On the one hand, it’s DEFINITELY not a road I’d like to see any female friend or relative of mine taking.

    On the other hand, I understand the economics of it.

    Oh, well…

    Would you have to pay for a whole hour? I’d only need maybe $60 worth…

  • Hugh_G

    I wish I had a spare 600 bucks, make that 1200 bucks.

      ok, that’s just funny.

    whose illustrious running career has included a Nike TV commercial, a
    swimsuit calendar, and ongoing promotional work for Disney

    Brings some new meaning to that old Nike slogan. But I’ll bet that Disney will have some issues with this.

  • Albert Barnett

    $6000.00 a day, good work if you can get it! If I was young attractive and single, spending time with rich average looking woman would be great work!

  • retired.military

    I could care less about this woman and or her sex life.

    To me this is like “so and so is dating Jay z or madonna or whoever”

  • Shawn

    Damn.
    44 yrs old?
    Impressive.

  • Brett Buck

    I must be getting old. I see some of those pictures and think “standing on the bed with high heels will get the sheets dirty and ruin the mattress”.

  • fustian24

    This is one of the traditional ways that young people prepare for a career in politics as a Democrat.

      I don’t get the sense that she is a Democrat. She said she is not taking the route of claiming to be a victim and takes responsibility for her actions. Kind of disqualifies her for that party.
