Madam: Black book will interest fans
A suburban New York mother who pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution says she plans to write a book that will disclose names.
Following a court appearance Wednesday, Anna Gristina said football fans in particular will be interested in the book. The New York Post reported an NFL executive will be the first name she discloses, possibly in an upcoming interview with TV host psychologist Dr. Phil.
"There is going to be a giant name dropped — actually, a couple of them," Gristina said, laughing when asked if she was implying a connection to the New York Giants.
"Everyone's going to have to watch Dr. Phil," she told the newspaper. "I will tell you that one of the names is high-level (NFL) management. Then there's an older (football) player who's still very well known. Tune in to Dr. Phil!"
Gristina, a 44-year-old mother of four, appeared before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan. She was released last month after being sentenced to time served and is on five years of probation. She pleaded guilty to a single count of promoting prostitution.
Prosecutors had alleged she made millions over 15 years as a madam. Gristina said she was only starting a dating service.
