James Lipton, host of the show Inside The Actor's Studio supported himself when he was young and living in Paris by pimping out a girlfriend. In his new book, James says that he and his lady friend made a very good living, selling her out and also arranging sex shows. Although she was French, most of her clients were Americans that James would find out on the streets and drag up to the apartment he shared with his hooker.
James says he got into the business because he couldn't get a work permit while in France and needed to do something to earn a buck. James suggests that it was the woman who first approached him about being her pimp and he agreed.
Now when I watch James interviewing some actress, I will always wonder if he is trying to decide how much he could get for her per hour.
