The Pimp & The Prositute, Who Just Happen To Be A Suburban Married Couple
28 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been telling a good friend, who also likes this show, about the ridiculous bias on it but how interesting it is each time. He has thought I've exaggerated it a bit but even he admitted that I "may be on to something" after he watched this episode on Ft. Lauderdale at his house the same day I did.

I mean, only ultra-liberal "City Confidential" would take the side of a pimp husband and prostitute wife, along with the city's porn king against someone who is trying to clean up the city. City Confidential just hates "do-gooders," those who might take offense at public lewdness and "debauchery" so it was with great glee they reported one of those guys was on a prostitute's list of clients. That's the whole reason for this story. CC also emphasizes any instance in which a nice town (not this one) is hurt by one hypocrite or sleazeball. And by the way, as pointed out by Ft. Lauderdale minister Dr. D. James Kennedy here, "we are all sinners." Kennedy is the only person interviewed in this episode that is on one side of the story; all the others are on the other side.

Here are the details and the couple that City Confidential thinks are so cool. They are Kathy and Jeff Willets of Tamarac, just outside of Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. He's a cop and she's a mother and housewife. One day they decide "let's do something crazy." They decide to make their home a brothel with her having all the sex and him hiding in the closet, taking notes and videotaping! They call it "a venture, an experiment, just having fun." This mom is the prostitute and dad is the pimp! Things got lively out in the quiet subdivision of Tamarac. All this new traffic (sex is big business) aroused suspicions. The year was 1991.

Later, when they get caught, their lawyer - this is really funny - says that Kathy is a nymphomaniac and that all the clients were just there for "therapy." They are serious!! The big story turns out to be "The List," the prominent supposedly that were some of her clients. It turns out the list didn't have big names, as they thought, was it was more-than-assumed that one of them was a local crusader, a guy who got into politics to clean up the Ft. Lauderdale area. The famous Spring Break city had become an area with a lot of porn and drunks....but CC thinks that it just fine.

You know who gets more air time on this episode than all the other people? The porn king of Ft. Lauderdale! His word is taken as gospel, as is the man who began the Spring Break tradition. He's an older guy by now, of course, and wears a beanie with a top you spin on it. Yeah, he's another weirdo CC takes seriously.

As far as the crime goes, it has a number of strange twists and turns, which I won't spoil by saying here. Suffice to say, it's an interesting episode, and quite different, except for the lefty slants.

Anyway, we get some good glances at this famous Florida city, how it started with Henry Flagler and grew and how it has changed over the last 60 years. Flagler actually "invented" the state, if you will. It's now a huge city but it has cleaned up quite a bit. Apparently, discouraging Spring Break kids was a positive step, despite what was implied here. The city looks great. Then again, "The Venice of Florida," always looked pretty good in most spots.
