Monday, we had ex Wall Street women, dancing at Rick's Cabaret to make ends meet:
The economy's gone bust, and so have they.
Scores of professional New York women stripped of their six-figure jobs are now working as "gentlemen's club entertainers" at upscale Manhattan jiggle joints. Former Wall Streeters, fashion executives and real-estate agents are pole dancing and stripping for as much as $1,500 a night -- but also because they like the flexible hours.
Now Romain Mesnil, from France, a pole vaulter who was the 2007 silver medalist in the World Championships, got dropped by Nike. So he took a page from the strippers, and took his pole and ran around the streets in Paris naked, trying to drum up some new sponsorships!
It's the pole dance economy!
