Mother realizes "hidden" prostitute is her daughter.


Oops. After she was interviewed by Diane Sawyer for an ABC special on prostitution, a Manhattan hooker was busted by her mother--who recognized her daughter, despite the network's elaborate efforts to disguise her, reports the NY Post.

In spite of the silhouette, the altered voice, the distorted profile, and the vague details, "I received an e-mail from my mother saying that she knows," the call girl wrote on her blog, Debauchette. In the e-mail, her mother reportedly wrote: ""I have to say that it wasn't a complete surprise . . . But I was in a state of denial."

Have you ever hidden anything from your own mother, or do you worry your child is hiding a secret life from you?

I think when we convey a sense of openness and trust, it helps to keep the level of secretiveness between us and our kids down.

Are you kidding? I don’t have any secrets this big, but my mom is the one who TAUGHT me to lie. I’m expecting my first child (a girl) in July, and while I hope to have a MUCH more open relationship with her than I did with my own mother, I also expect that as she grows up (particularly in her teen years) there will be a certain amount of secretiveness—I think it’s normal and part of her learning how to solve problems on her own (and learning which problems she’ll need help with). Once she’s an adult, I still hope we’ll be able to talk, but I also don’t expect her to tell me everything.
Although, I also don’t expect her to become a prostitute.

Well, I know that I hide things from my mom because even when she says she won’t get mad, she really does and that makes me feel like I can’t tell her anything.
