How did Suzy Favor-Hamilton spend New Year’s Eve? You’ll recall, back in 2012, Ms. Favor-Hamilton, 44, a former Olympian, was outed as a $600-an-hour prostitute.
Favor-Hamilton has some notice in that tiny, tiny portion of the general population that follows women’s track and field. She was a middle-distance runner. In high school, she became Wisconsin’s first four-time state champion in girl’s cross country. Went on to be the Big Ten Conference’s three-time female athlete of the year. Was a nine-time NCAA champion at Wisconsin-Madison, and won seven U.S. national titles. Also a three-time Olympian, but never medaled.
She is a partner in the Favor Hamilton Realty Group. The Hamilton of Favor Hamilton Reality is her husband, Mark. They sell high-end homes in the Madison area. The couple owns a $600,000 house in Shorewood Hills, a fashionable community bordering the University of Wisconsin.
Besides real estate, Favor-Hamilton worked as a motivational speaker, served as a spokeswoman for runDisney running series, Foot Locker, Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon, and Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association. Big fish, little pond.
There is the problem with her seven-year-old daughter, who will never, for the rest of her life, be free of this story. But daughter could wind up being proud of mom’s grit. You can’t predict how these things turn out.
When busted, Favor-Hamilton responded with the generic celebrity response: “I cannot emphasize enough how sorry I am to anyone I have hurt as a result of my actions and greatly appreciate the support from family.... I have been seeking the help of a psychologist for the past few weeks and will continue to do so after I have put things together.”
They are always seeing a psychologist, they are always taking full responsibility, they are always thanking their family. Follows are some quotes from the immediately dismantled escort service once known as Haley Heston’s Private Collection. This is from the Favor-Hamilton/Kelly Lundy escort bio page:
“Hi, I am Kelly and proud to be a part of HHPC, and I absolutely LOVE it! I started this adventure in December of 2011 when I met Haley with the idea of fulfilling a fantasy and doing it only for the short term. Well, after my first date, I was hooked and have been doing my best to visit Las Vegas as often as my schedule allows (I run my own business in my real-world life). I look forward to my visits with great anticipation!
“I am a FULL GFE, and love to please, and have been described as fun-loving, extremely sensual, and sophisticated. I try my best to bring elegance and class to the table and will dress appropriately for any occasion. I enjoy men of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and I have an affinity for women as well (I am bisexual), so I consider dates with couples an experience to cherish. Working with couples requires special skill, and I pride myself in my ability to make a woman feel comfortable and not threatened in any way, shape form. A date with me will NEVER feel rushed.
“For dates, I prefer San Pellegrino or a nice Pinot Noir. (Occasionally, I like to enjoy a lemon drop martini :) I never expect gifts, but if you ever want to provide a special treat for me, I have a liking for Louis Vuitton, Agent Provocateur, Herve Leger, and Christian Louboutin. Expensive tastes I know :) I wear size 2 in dress and panties, a U.S. size 8 shoe, and 34B bra.
“I hope to see you soon! xoxoxoxoxo, Kelly.”

Favor-Hamilton said her husband was aware of her work and “tried to get me to stop. He wasn’t supportive of this at all.” The couple ran the Disney Half-Marathon in September. She tweeted, “So proud of my husband for running his first half-marathon! He did great!” Bottom line, she didn’t lie to him, and he put up with it.
But, why? How about this: maybe she liked it. Doesn’t seem like she needed money, doesn’t seem like a fling, she was hooking for a year, didn’t quit until she had to. Maybe she liked being 44 years old and getting paid $600 an hour for sex, liked being the third most popular prostitute on Erotic Review’s Las Vegas “provider” list. Maybe that’s all there is.
