The rumors are FALSE! Lynda’s modeling agency is not an escort service, and Stacie is quick to rush to her defense!
You may have heard rumors circulating online that The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. star Lynda Erkiletian runs a top notch “escort agency,” but these are completely false! The rumors are “absolutely not” true, co-star Stacie Scott Turner tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “That is a viscous, baseless rumor!”
“She has run a reputable agency for models and stylists in DC for 26 years,” Stacie says of Lynda‘s T.H.E. Artist Agency.
Though Lynda has been quoted saying that her “modeling agency” caters to “the ambassadors, to the dignitaries,” in an interview with the Washington Post, the term “catering” does not imply anything suggestive, as many people are speculating.
“T.H.E Artist Agency in Georgetown is a full service agency that represents over 500 models and stylists,” the website for the agency reads. “T.H.E is not a modeling school; the opportunity to gain knowledge of the market and assistance with development is extended to all talent. As agents we are proud to promote careers in the areas of fashion runway, commercial and fashion print. We are leaders in the representation of hair and make-up artists, wardrobe stylists, set designers, food, floral and prop stylists. Experts in the areas of special effects, location scouting and production are also available through T.H.E.”
But, the site also says this: “No matter what your needs are, we have the talent available to produce a first-rate project.” Maybe Lynda should re-write that last sentence to avoid confusion.
If this scandal over Lynda’s alleged “escort service” is used on the show, it would make for a very interesting season of the all new The Real Housewives of D.C., don’t you think?
