Suzy Favor Hamilton, best known for being a three-time Olympic track-star-turned-escort, revealed that details in her upcoming memoir, “Fast Girl,” will offer insight into why she chose to work as a $600/hr call girl in Las Vegas.
Hamilton was infamously exposed by a reporter for The Smoking Gun in 2012 while working for the escort agency Haley Heston Private Collection under the name “Kelly Lundy.”
Hamilton has reportedly suffered from manic depression and bipolar disorder for most of her life — ironically, she says the disorder drove her to become an Olympic athlete . obsessed with winning that competed in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Summer Olympics. While she has won seven U.S. national titles, Hamilton has never won an Olympic medal and her psychological disorders persisted after her career.
When she sought treatment, a misdiagnosis put her on medication that actually made her condition worse while also causing her to become hypersexual, leading to the beginning of her double life as a call girl. After she was exposed, she tweeted about her choice to “escape” and become an escort:
“I do not expect people to understand, but the reasons for doing this made sense to me at the time and were very much related to depression.”
Hamilton worked as a call girl in Las Vegas for $600 an hour, $1,000 for two hours, $4,000 for 12 hours and $6,000 for an entire day. One review on her profile from July 2012 read, “She is worth every penny. I will go bankrupt before I stop seeing her. I hope no one else goes to see her, because I want her all to myself,” according to Daily Mail.
Her husband, Mark Hamilton, allegedly knew of her double life but failed to put an end to it.
Hamilton was exposed when she revealed her real name to clients. The publicity that followed lost her lucrative sponsorship deals with Nike and Disney, and her name was stripped from the Big Ten Female Athlete of the Year Award which she won three times straight beginning in 1988.
After seeking help and a correct diagnosis, Hamilton now campaigns to bring awareness and understanding to those who suffer from manic depression and bipolar disorders.
