Lady of the Night Suburbanite

It's a real life case of Desperate Housewife meets a twisted version of The Weeds (Showcase Channel drama about a formerly well-to-do widow who sells pot to make ends meet). Bonnie Lee Weiss, a Thousand Oaks, California divorcee was secretly turning tricks as an upper-middle-class self-proclaimed courtesan. [...]

According to the story from the Los Angeles Daily News by Dana Bartolomew (1/23/06), it turns out the ex-husband about whom she was always complaining Craig Riley Fawcett a 74-year-old, ex-grocer was acting as pimp to her and three other suspected prostitutes. The ladies involved weren't some set of young bimbos. His ex-wife was 49 years old, while another of his alleged escorts was a 56-year-old woman living in the famously affluent Newport Beach area.

Interesting enough, although unable to find the CraigsList entry mentioned in the article, I was able still to find the 6-foot tall Bonne Lee's homepage as well as an ExGuide ad advertising her services accompanied by a photo of the Amazonian Doris Day, it reads:

I'm a tall, classy woman offering the ultimate courtesan experience in LA. I guarantee full satisfaction and a very happy ending that will leave you wanting to come back for more.

Generous gentlemen and serious inquiries only.

An anonymous informant called in a tip against Weiss who called herself Brieanne in the biz. The couple was arrested January 12 on suspicion of pimping as well as conspiracy to solicit prostitution and jailed with bail set at $50 000 each.

Mr. Fawcett who has the words "Equal Justice" affixed to his Canoga Park paralegal business, family yacht and on the license plate of his Jaguar may now wish that the court will treat the well-to-do better than common criminals. As to, Ms. Weiss, no happy ending is now guaranteed as it would take 143 "generous gentlemen" to raise her bail at her rate of $350 a visit.
