Scandalous!

Ahh, I love my little small town Maine life but if you watch the news lately, you have probably heard of a little Zumba scandal that is the talk of the town...the State of Maine...and now it seems all over the country. I has to start laughing when I saw this featured on the Today Show on NBC this morning.

Needless to say, these days ZUMBA is taking on a whole new meaning in my neck of the woods since Alexis Wright was working as a prostitute out of her studio right here in the quite little sea side town of Kennebunk, Maine.

"The prostitution charges and ensuing publicity, which reached across the country and beyond, came as a shock in the small town of about 10,000 residents, which is well-known for its ocean beaches, old sea captains’ mansions and the neighboring town of Kennebunkport, home to the Bush family’s Walker’s Point summer compound.
The list of names was delayed Friday by legal action by an attorney representing two of the people accused of being johns. The lawyer, Stephen Schwartz, said releasing the names will ruin people’s lives, even if they’re acquitted of the misdemeanor charges against them." ~Boston.com

What has blown this story out of the water is the court battle that has taken place over the last week to keep "the client list" hush-hush and out of the papers and news. Apparently, there are several "big names" on this list and they are fighting to keep their name out of the news. Last night, 21 of the 150 or so names of the "John's" were released to the public.

Bottom line, if these "John's" were so worried about it being known to the public, they should have thought about that before going to "Zumba".

I saw this the other day. A male friend was joking today that he was going to join a zumba class soon.

I will say that I always think it's unfair that the johns get their names protected. Come on--they're just as guilty!

I've been following this story on Today show and totally thinking of you up there in ME close to the scene of the crimes! I feel mildly bad for the guys but it's true - don't do anything shady at a Zumba studio and you wouldn't be in this mess.

I watched the segment on this about 20 minutes ago. It caught my ears having been there many times.

NOW I now why this one dude is hanging around in the Zumba class at my daughter's dance studio! He really does think he's going to get lucky! But he should know it's gonna cost him more than $5 a "class."
