Someone at the league office is going to be getting coal in his stocking for Christmas.
A woman who has admitted to running a Manhattan prostitution ring says she plans to disclose next week on Dr. Phil’s show the names of big-name clients. The first, according to the New York Post, will be a high-level NFL executive.
“There is going to be a giant name dropped — actually, a couple of them,” Anna Gristina told the Post.
Gristina was asked if that’s “giant” with a capital “G,” which drew a laugh that has been described by the Post as “mischievous.”
“Everyone’s going to have to watch Dr. Phil,” Gristina said. “I will tell you that one of the names is high-level [NFL] management. Then there’s an older [football] player who’s still very well known. Tune in to Dr. Phil!”
Gristina, who pleaded guilty earlier this year to one count of promoting prostitution, currently is on probation. She received permission from a judge on Wednesday to travel to L.A. for the taping of the Dr. Phil show.
The taping happens next week, and the show will be aired roughly a week later. It’s unlikely that the name of the executive will remain secret for long after the name is disclosed to the studio audience.
