(Newser) – Suzy Favor Hamilton is a three-time Olympian, the most decorated female runner in NCAA history, and has appeared in ads for Nike, Reebok, and more. She's also a high-priced Las Vegas call girl. Or at least, that's how the 44-year-old has spent the past year, the Smoking Gun has discovered. Though Favor Hamilton used the moniker "Kelly Lundy" while on the job, she shared her true identity with several clients, whom, the website implies, ratted her out. When confronted, Favor Hamilton admitted to the whole thing.

"I knew what I was doing," she wrote on Twitter yesterday, explaining that her reasons "were very much related to depression," USA Today reports. Hamilton doesn't appear to need the money—she has a successful real estate business, does promotional work for Disney and other companies, and lives in a $600,000 home—but she told the Smoking Gun that the job was an "exciting" break from day-to-day life. She said her husband had tried, unsuccessfully, to get her to stop. But now, she appears done with it all. "I made a huge mistake," she said. "Huge."

Wow. Y'all must be perfect since you seem so happy to judge her. She had undiagnosed bipolar disorder. People with that condition do all kinds of things they wouldn't normally do. Once it is diagnosed and properly medicated, people with that disorder stop doing crazy things.
