Jami Rodman is notorious. Once one of the highest-paid madams in the Las Vegas escort business, the 38-year-old entrepreneur was outed when it was revealed that Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton was working for her. These days, Rodman is out of the escorting game and working on a degree in international studies. She let her alter ego — Haley Heston — out for one last hurrah in her memoir, which details the ins and outs of being a stripper, an escort, and eventually, a madam.
Rodman’s book, The Las Vegas Madam: The Escorts, The Clients, The Truth, came out in December and will make even the most fervent 50 Shades fans blush a deep crimson. Aside from being an engaging story, the memoir is also an unapologetic exploration of a young woman’s transition from an ultra-religious childhood to the glitz, glamour, and loneliness of selling sex in Sin City. While Rodman is no longer living the high life (these days she just goes to class and hopes no one googles her), she’s still a fountain of knowledge when it comes to issues of relationships, monogamy, and the ethics of cheating.
