Sex Scandals: The gift that keeps on giving

March 13, 2008 | 10:38 am

Divinedm_468x703 Over ten years ago, Hugh Grant made a crucial, dumb decision -- pull over on Sunset Boulevard at 1:00 a.m. and get down with a hooker named "Divine Brown." Cops caught the two in flagrante delicto and the rest is salacious history. What became of the vivacious street walker? Well, she struck gold -- thanks to paid TV appearances, a lipstick endorsement, and other income related to her infamy. Almost $2 million, according to an article last year in the Daily Mail.
The article reports that Ms. Brown and her two daughters moved to a Beverly Hills-adjacent house (Who brought a casserole over to welcome them?)  and purchased a Rolls-Royce and a floor-length mink coat.
Ms. Brown's partner and pimp -- "Gangsta Brown" -- had this to say about the bounteous aftermath:
"The money poured in, poured in, poured in. I love Hugh Grant. We had a chance to travel on private jets. If I can meet him and shake his hand all I would like to say is: 'Thank you. I appreciate you, and if there is anything I can do in return I would love to be a friend.' "

Will Ashley Alexandra Dupre be lucky enough to earn a cool mill for Spitzer-gate? At least. Brings a whole new meaning to the term, hooker with a heart of gold.
