Ex-Madam Heidi Fleiss Back on Top- Again!

Las Vegas Backstage Access has written many times on the illustrious Heidi Fleiss.

Now, the ex-Madam Heidi Fleiss is back in the news again, and pretty much for the same reason she always made news, selling sex. 

This time however, her source of income is the airing of an HBO special about, Heidi Fleiss’ Stud Farm, her latest sex for money venture in Las Vegas – where anything is legal- well, er…almost.                                                       

Now, fresh off her inpatient drug treatment program stint on VH1′s “Celebrity Rehab 2″ with Dr. Drew Pinsky, in September Fleiss was sentenced to three years probation on felony drug charges stemming from her February ’08 arrest in Pahrump, a rural town 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas.

She needs to stay out of trouble, and away from drugs, through 2012.   She promised she would.

The former Hollywood Madam, 43, plans to leave her home in Pahrump and her many birds in January to be on the show, which is in its last season. It was announced in August that Britain’s Channel 4 would pull the plug on the series due to low viewer ratings. 

District Judge John Davis in Pahrump cleared her earliery in the week to travel to London early January for a paid appearance on the reality television show. 

This will be her second appearance on a reality television show, unless you count all of the times her real life has landed her on televison.

Fleiss told the Review-Journal that she was to be paid $10,000 per episode, money she needs as her most recent endeavor, a dog grooming shop in Las Vegas, is apparently all washed up. 

She continues to draw a paycheck from a laundromat she owns in Pahrump called Dirty Laundry. 

Fleiss originally achieved notoriety through her part in an illegal prositution ring in Hollywood, claiming she made in excess of $10 millon a year which involved high profile celebrities, drugs, and all the other assorted benefits of life down under. 

As for her latest venture, there is not much news as to how many episodes HBO will run, or the business end of the deal either.

Sextress Heidi Fleiss Trys to Go Clean, Winds Up Dirty- Again!

Even when Heidi Fleiss tries to go clean, the former ‘Hollywood Madam’ winds up getting dirty. 

Days after Las Vegas Backstage Access reported on August 31 about her new pet gromming business venture, Fleiss and two business partners were sued by a man who claimed the business was purchased illegally! 

The plaintiff, Jeffrey Marvian, originally opened the Little Buddy Bath pet groomer with his wife before the couple’s marriage soured and they planned to divorce. Court papers said the couple borrowed $60,000 against the equity in their home to pay for the business. 

But Marvian claimed his wife, Nickol, sold “Little Buddy” to Fleiss and former porn star Kendra Rossi without his consent or knowledge. 

To hide the sale, Marvian claimed his wife was paid nothing and instead entered into a deal to be featured in a reality television show that focused on Fleiss’ attempt to run the shop. 

A judge has yet to hear Marvian’s complaint. 

The lawsuit cited Fliess saying she is the owner of Little Buddy Bath but planned to change the name to “Dirty Dogs.” That name is similar to the “Dirty Laundry” moniker she gave to a laundromat Fleiss opened in Pahrump. 

Fleiss insisted the name is just a play on words, and customers shouldn’t expect anything more than a professional service at both businesses. 

“As far as the sex business goes, I have no interest in it. I know that business better than anyone. No one can run a sex business like me. I just have zero interest in it,” Fleiss said. “My feet are barely getting wet in this business, and I wish I would have been in this business from the start.”

Former Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss Plots Dirty Dog Deeds with Porn Star Homey in Las Vegas

The former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss enjoys doing most anything dirty in Nevada.  Her dirty empire is now morphing, going to the dogs, with grandiose plans to grow it leaps and bounds.  Heidi Fleiss

dirtylaundryFirst, Fleiss gave a boost to Pahrump, Nevada tax revenues in 2007, and since, by opening her very successful Dirty Laundry coin-op laundromat business.  Now, she’s got a new plan– taking dead aim at cleaning all the dirty dogs in Las Vegas. 

Fleiss is the new owner of a small dog grooming business located in a Kmart shopping center at Sunset and Sandhill roads in Las Vegas that offers everything from doggy dye jobs, nail polish pet-icures, to self-service stations where, if so inclined, you can wash your own dirty ol’ pooch.

They’re calling their business Dirty Dog, though the sign above the door still bears the business’ old name, Little Buddy Bath. 

Kendra RossiFleiss’ business partner in the venture is Kendra Jade Rossi, left, a porn star and recovering sex addict who said she plans to regularly commute to Las Vegas from her home in Los Angeles.  

Their place is open for business, but it’s a bit of a mess right now as Fleiss and company remodel with calming colors and distressed antique furniture meant to give it that “shabby-chic look.”  When they’re done, Fleiss hopes, their doggy salon is going to look like something you would find in a ritzy Los Angeles shopping area. 

“But it’s going to feel in your pocket like you just went to Kmart,” Rossi said. 

Fleiss got the dirty dog bug and decided to get into the grooming business after she attended PetSmart Inc.’s annual meeting in June and learned how much money people spend on their pets each year– to the tune of $6 billion! 

“I wish I’d known about this before. I never would have gone into the sex business or any other business,” Fleiss quipped. 

Fleiss went to the PetSmart meeting in New York City to speak on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which has called on the retailer to phase out the sale of live birds. 

Fleiss has always had a true, enduring love for all types of flesh, feathered and furred animals.  She developed a passion for parrots almost immediately after she moved to Pahrump in 2005 and inherited a menagerie of 26 of the exotic birds from her elderly neighbor.  She now shares her home with her feathered friends, letting them fly free without confining cages. 

Fleiss originally moved to the town 60 miles west of Las Vegas to open a unique brothel for women called the Stud Farm, but she later abandoned that idea amid political pressure and excessive government red tape.  [Feb. 13 Las Vegas Backstage Access article.] 

Fleiss and Rossi struck up an amiable friendship recently when they appeared together on the VH1 rehab reality show “Sober House,” where Fleiss went after soon-to-be-televised treatment for drug addiction. 

“We formed our own little clique,” said Rossi, who runs an animal rescue in Los Angeles. 

Fleiss said they bonded over their love of animals. “The way I am about birds, she is about dogs,” she said. 

They are already talking about expanding the shop and adding boarding services and dog nutrition counseling. And that’s just the beginning. 

“We don’t want one Dirty Dog, we want 100 Dirty Dogs,” Fleiss said, adding the pet industry looks like a can’t-miss proposition.  

“Anything with animals does really well. Come on, people buy their dogs $8,000 Gucci sweaters,” she said. “People get over their mother or brother dying. They never get over their pet dying.” 

So why should people trust their beloved pets to a madam and a porn star who just happily met each other in rehab? 

“I changed my whole life for animals,” Fleiss said, adding her past is just that- the past.
