The Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss is back in the news once again, and the paranoia over her black book will begin again. Fleiss is auctioning off the book that contains the names of every John in Hollywood, which includes their likes/dislikes/fetishes, as well as how frequently they used her prostitution service. The auction will happen on eBay, and the opening bid is 100k.
According to the Inquisitr, the time must have seemed right, with all of the headlines about Ashley Madison, the cheating website that was hacked, and names revealed, including disgraced TLC participant Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting, who also allegedly molested girls, including his sister.
TMZ broke the story that Fleiss is finally putting her infamous black book on the market. Back in 1993, the book made big news, but her lips were sealed. The only name she leaked at the time was Charlie Sheen, who gleefully acknowledged that he was a customer of the prostitution service. The other Johns were reportedly in a panic, and the book stayed Fleiss’ dirty little secret for 22 years, until now.
“These are the richest people on earth that I’m dealing with… They’ll pay $3 million on a hand of blackjack and have five hands going.”
The book is described as 28 pages, “encased in a red Gucci planner.” It contains the names of “actors, musicians, sports figures, agency execs and politicians.”
Entertainment Weekly reported that back in the day, the Heidi Fleiss scandal was big news, and suddenly, the young madam’s name was on the lips of everyone in Hollywood, and every studio was in an absolute panic that their star was going down with Fleiss’ little black book.
“It’s like sleeping death around here,” says a Columbia development executive. “Nothing’s getting done. They’re mounting investigations. It’s all in the accounting department, that’s what they’re concerned about.”
Fleiss, the daughter of a Beverly Hills gynecologist was known to rub elbows with the rich and famous all around Hollywood.
“She was obviously good at what she did,” says one waiter. “She could afford to eat here.” Apparently, the only thing Heidi wasn’t good at was keeping a low profile. “Heidi has a big mouth,” says LAPD vice squad Capt. Glenn Ackerman. “She talks more than any other madam I’ve ever heard of. She likes the celebrity.”
Do you think one of the Johns will buy Heidi Fleiss’ black book, or will the names be released to the public?
