I still haven't bought into the "Beth Was An Escort" theory, but you folks do make it entertaining.
I was listening to the 1/4/12 show -- Rachel Butera is the best thing they've had on in months -- and heard the following, submitted for your approval. Talking about the Hoff's new "alien themed whorehouse" idea.
(Useless Robin interruptions sanitized for your protection.)"Although I've seen some whores that really do look like aliens. They're nasty... From guys I know that are into hookers -- and that was never my thing -- uh, but, but, you know, and Artie used to talk about it all the time that, like, you'd go to Vegas, so like girls who are professional models and stuff will be whores. Like they'll come to your room and spend the whole weekend with ya. That's a good theme. Model Whorehouse... There's just some freaky dudes out there that need a little more."
Honestly he seemed quite sincere and I didn't sense any irony, self-awareness, or cognitive dissonance; then again I rarely do with him. (I certainly remember the Artie discussions he's referring to.) But I thought some people here might find it interesting.
I think the other usual components of the Escort Theory are (a) Beth Ostrosky Stern's lack of documented European work (but she could have been doing ANYTHING there, from getting married to slumming around to working as a fluffer) and (b) Alec Baldwin's reference to her as an escort in a Howard interview...
Please feel free to lay out additional evidence here... or ignore it... whatever.
