TLP: How Weiner's Women Got the Money Shots and Avoided the Mess
Let's hope that Anthony Weiner busted a good nut or twelve in the course of his cock-tweeting and Facebook seduction adventures. You'd have to think he did. Otherwise, he'd have been guzzling bourbon instead of bottled water at his "it was mine" news conference.
Seems the attention-whoring AW wasn't the only one using the online encounters to get a little ... something. Looks like the women he sexted and skeezed on were perfectly capable of giving while they were getting. And at least one got paid to talk about it afterward, speaking of attention-whoring.
Before the subjects of headlining news stories agree to a television interview these days, some have one question: how much money can I make?So apparently Meagan Broussard's price is $15k. And as the saying goes, we already know what she is. Being involved in this and recent stories has resulted in similar payments for "rights to home movies" or "education trusts" or whatever.
ABC and NBC, embroiled in a fight for viewers in the mornings, are increasingly in the news for their willingness to pay thousands of dollars to gain exclusive access to news subjects.
The practice was especially visible last week when ABC News ran an exclusive interview with Meagan Broussard, one of the women who was sent lewd photos by Anthony Weiner, after the network paid her about $15,000 for photos. ABC said its extensive reporting, including the interview, led to Mr. Weiner’s admissions about his online behavior.
Which raises the question of not just what Weiner's women are getting out of it at the end, but what their role was in the midst of the filthy photo-swapping show-and-tell.
LZ Granderson commented on CNN.com:
But the Weiner scandal -- and I feel somewhat silly calling it a scandal ... appears to be some horny adults getting freaky over the Internet, illustrated by this e-mail exchange shared by Lisa Weiss, one of the six women Weiner was involved with:So thoughtful, CNN. Cutting the text off before it gets good and Weiss asks Weiner, "how r u gonna go to work with a raging hard on?" and advises that, "u ar making me wet again" before sharing that she enjoys blowjobs and in fact has been complimented on her skills.
Weiner: ridiculous bulge in my shorts now. wanna see?
Weiss: "Yea! can u send a pic? I want to sit on your ..."
I couldn't find any indication that Weiss collected any cash for her part of the story (disclosure: I am a lazy motherfucker and could completely have missed it) but somehow all those dripping text messages wound up being read and laughed at all over the Internet. And I doubt Weiner released them.
Poor fucker. I bet he got some in the eye.
