A Texas newspaper has fired staff reporter Sarah Tressler after she was exposed — by a competing paper, natch — as a stripper. Tressler, who has a bachelor’s and master’s degree, worked as a society reporter for the Houston Chronicle and taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Houston. But for eight years, she also worked at upscale strip clubs.
Sarah Tressler blogged about stripping at “Diary Of An Angry Stripper,” writing articles like “Customers To Avoid List” and “10 Things You Should Know Before You Date A Stripper,” and tweeted from @AngryStripper. Yet she told “Good Morning America” that she never assumed she would be “outed” by anyone because it seemed “like such a mean thing to do.” (Houston Press, the paper that exposed her, said they only did it because it was a “good story.”) After getting canned by the Chronicle for not revealing the job, Tressler is now working as a teacher, and is also still stripping. . . .
My secret blog, “Diary of a Man-Whore,” never got many readers.
But I’m sure Tressler’s new career as a teacher will turn out as well as it did for that Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader, right?
UPDATE: Almost forgot to hat-tip Instapundit. If Sarah Tressler doesn’t get a movie deal out of this, maybe she can fill in for Professor Reynolds next time he goes on vacation.
