A traditional Houston newspaper is at the centre of scandal after it was exposed one of its reporters has been working overtime - as a stripper. Sarah Tressler, 29, started writing for the Houston Chronicle's society pages last April. But her double life has actually brought some surplus attention for the media outlet after a competitor newspaper brought her story to light.
Richard Connelly, reporting for the Houston Press, humiliated Miss Tressler and her colleagues at the Chronicle with an depiction about the brunette's thinly-veiled late-night life as an foreign dancer. As Connelly reports, Miss Tressler keeps a Facebook, Twitter report and blog using the alias 'Angry Stripper'. Photos of the dancer affectation provocatively in lingerie and six-inch heels are dotted between her social networks, which have been locked since the story gained attention. A explanation on her Facebook fan page is frank and forward.
I strip for crazy people and then pass comment about it so we can laugh at them TOGETHER. That's love, people,' she writes, noting interests containing 'Brass poles, tiny muscles, money, and the completely civil chat of your choosing.'According to Miss Tressler's LinkedIn outline, she has a bachelor's degree from the University of Houston, where she works as an addition professor.
She did a master's degree in journalism from New York University, and has joined as a temporary reporter for publications containing: Us Weekly, L.A. City Beat and GLOSS Magazine.
That might come as a revelation to those who read her blog, 'Diary of an Angry Stripper'.
