Grace O'Toole, the number two woman in the high-end prostitution ring Wicked Models, has turned herself in to police. The 24-year-old brunette apparently "oversaw bookings, client relations, payments and interviewed prospective prostitutes." Kristin Billie Davis, her boss and the madam of Wicked Models, is already in custody on $2 million bail.
Grace is the girl next door you would least expect to be the right-hand woman for a prostitution ring. Grace's 43 Things profile reveals that her first love is for botany and horticulture. One of her dreams is to work at the New York Botanical Garden. She briefly attended Bronx Community College before transferring to a 4-year college where she majored in Political Science with a minor in Philosophy.
Madam in Manhattan
Add "madam at Wicked Models" to the list.
Grace reveals in a subtle allusion to her job at Wicked Models:
I am finally working a decent job with hours that enable me to attend school again. This is a time when I should get back on track, and I feel I need to get back on my original track and complete either a degree or a certification in horticulture.
Who would expect an innocent young lady who enjoys gardening, is an avid student, and works a job to pay for her schooling, to also moonlight as a madam in Manhattan?
Apparently, it all made sense to Grace, and it makes sense once you read through her 31 dreams and goals in life.
"Becoming famous." (or infamous) ... Check.
"Save 12,000 dollars by 2008." ... Double check. At upwards of $1000 an hour for a hooker, that doesn't seem too difficult.
"Find my soulmate" ... May be difficult given her newfound infamy!
"Read the entire Bible" ... Soon to be checked - we hear there isn't much in the way of entertainment in jail.
Grace O'Toole calls herself "Miss Lonelyhearts" on her MySpace profile, in an apparent reference to a book by the same name. In the book, Miss Lonelyhearts is a depressed journalist who tries to get out of a rough patch in life through binge drinking, partying, and sex. Grace confesses on her blog that she went through a similar episode in life. She blogs:
When I was 18. I was uneducated and unemployed. I utilized all my free time by gardening in my Bronx Bedroom. On my 19th birthday I found myself depressed, lonely and without a plan.
Grace was last seen online on March 29, 2008 (right before going to jail?) and has set her blog and profile to private, but we were able to find some crumbs of her early life. Here's a sample MySpace blog entry:
I had a dream my room was empty and I was setting up 3 sets of bunk beds. I was starting to run a rehab for former child star has beens. Then the room transformed and only had 1 bunk bed and 1 regular bed. I was setting the room up for my 3 sons they were already older children like 7-12 years of age. I told them my bedroom would be for them and I would sleep in the living room on a pull out sofa. Then they were gone and my room was back to normal. I heard dogs barking so I went to my window. I was watching two dogs visiously fight on a large balcony of a building across the street and to the left from mine. Then they went inside and I could hear them and more dogs fighting from inside. I called 911, while on hold I was screaming up to the balcony, yelling at the invisible tenents that they were sick and I was calling the cops. Then all the noise stopped and two people ran out of the building with two other dogs and I had this horrible feeling the remaining dogs were dead or dying. Someone from another building across the street but to the right of mine came out on a fire escape and was trying to calm me down. I was still on hold and finally transfered to a pervy cop after he took the info from me he asked me what I was wearing and if I want to go out with him. When I declined he told me we had a bad connection and he didn't get all my info. I repeated it but he had hung up.
Two Thumbs Up
Her StumpleUpon profile, Spunkygurlygurl, tells us a lot about her tastes. Grace is a member of the Firefox, I Hate Cars, and New York groups. She likes movies like "Garden State" and "Lord of the Rings", books like "Miss Lonelyhearts" (that's where she got her name) and "Count of Monte Cristo" (irony?), and TV shows like "Nip/Tuck" and "Supernatural."
Oh...and she also reveals a taste for porn and favorites a book entitled "Porn 101."
