Mansion Madam, Lisa Ann Taylor, Looking For A Sex Columnist Job
As she awaits trial as the "Mansion Madam," Lisa Ann Taylor is looking for job, caring for kittens and girding for a bruising legal fight.
Prosecutors say the former Penthouse Pet charged clients up to $10,000 to perform sex acts in her million-dollar house in the Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth, an exclusive community that is home to professional athletes, entertainers and executives.
They say she could stand trial within months.
Taylor says she's eager to resolve her legal troubles and find a decent job.
"I'm still just hanging around waiting for this to be over so I can try and go back to work," she says.
A Gwinnett County grand jury indicted Taylor in June on prostitution, drug and racketeering charges.
The indictment alleges that she and Nicole Probert of Lawrenceville performed sex acts together and with clients for money. It also accuses them of procuring drugs and running a criminal enterprise from Taylor's home.
Both women deny the charges.
Judge William M. Ray II of Gwinnett Superior Court plans to hear motions in the case in November, and the trial is tentatively scheduled to start in February, says District Attorney Danny Porter of Gwinnett County.
Taylor's house is subject to forfeiture under racketeering laws, but she says she plans to fight the seizure.
Meanwhile, she's looking for a job.
Taylor says she may write a sex column for an adult magazine. She describes it as "Dear Abby, except I would call it 'Ask the Madam.'" She says she has not yet approached a publisher. Taylor is also known as Melissa Wolf, a Penthouse Pet of the '80s and '90s. She says she's also thought about a career in interior design.
In addition to considering a career change, Taylor says her cat has kept her busy lately — she's looking for a home for three Siamese-mix white kittens the cat gave birth to last month.
