Heidi Fleiss's Biography
In 2010 Heidi Fleiss became a housemate on Celebrity Big Brother. She was the second housemate to be evicted.
When she was 19 Heidi Fleiss dated financier Bernie Cornfeld. He was 40 years older than her. The relationship broke up and she started dating Ivan Nagy, who had been convicted for illegal bookmaking and was 30 years older than her.
Nagy introduced Fleiss to Elizabeth Adams known as Madam Alex. Fleiss brought friends whom she'd met through Cornfeld to work in Madam Alex's brothel, and soon the business was thriving.
Heidi Fleiss ended up running a highly profitable Hollywood call girl business that served clients like Charlie Sheen, however she ended up convicted in 1994 on federal charges of conspiracy, tax evasion and money laundering.
Heidi Fleiss told CNN:
"I took the oldest profession on Earth and I did it better than anyone on Earth. Alexander the Great conquered the world at 32. I conquered it at 22."
After her release from prison, Heidi Fleiss wrote books such as Pandering and The Player's Handbook, and she released with Victoria Sellers, a DVD called Sex Tips.
In 2003, Heidi Fleiss accused her ex-boyfriend Tom Sizemore of domestic violence and threatening behaviour. He was jailed for 17 months.
Her life has taken various curious turns since then, including being charged with drunk driving, illegal possession of prescription drugs, and driving without a license; and her dog grooming business was shut down by a judge as part of a civil lawsuit, two days after she was sentenced to three years probation on felony drug charges.
