Anonymous ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’ author Belle de Jour decided to reveal her true identity, after worrying that an ex-boyfriend would do it for her, the Associated Press reports.

Brooke Magnanti, the 34-year-old woman whose blog became the foundation for the Showtime series, turns out to be a child health researcher at Britain’s University of Bristol. According to Britain’s Sunday Times, she worked as an escort for more than a year in 2003 while finishing her Ph.D. On her blog, she took the identity of a legal secretary.

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
