Mark Ebner's scandal-filled book about Paris Hilton was released in January. One chapter—full of prostitution allegations against billionaire Clinton pal Ron Burkle—was cut. Now it's been released! And it's salacious, even by Ron Burkle standards:
Ebner posted the chapter (which he says was cut for "reasons mostly editorial) on his website. It centers on high-end prostitution in and around Hollywood, and is worth reading on its own. But let's pull out the Ron Burkle bits, shall we? Ebner says that Burkle, along with Interscope chief Ted Field, was one of the best-known "lifers"—patrons of super-high-end call girls, all the time. He points out Burkle's close friendship with Bill Clinton, and his private jet that underlings allegedly call "Air Fuck One."
Ebner writes that Burkle and Field both relied on a pimp named David Reich to get them girls. And then: allegations that Burkle paid to watch girl-on-girl action, starring Paris Hilton, live:
I got in touch with Elizabeth Jawhary, a former Hollywood party girl who claims she serviced both Burkle and Field on occasion. Writer Ben Wallace also met Jawhary doing research in L.A. "She was a recovering meth addict, but she did talk about Paris Hilton being along for the ride," he says.
Indeed, when I first contacted her, she was quick to volunteer, "With Paris it was very low key. She would fly down and I was there with them. We would party pretty hard. Paris got naked, and the girls would get naked. This was mainly in Vegas. There were times where you would have Ted or Ron come down, and they would pretty much pay for girl-on-girl action. I'd be there. And they'd pay to watch us girls going at it. And they'd bring in Augie Busch III."
Jawhary tells Ebner that she repeatedly took trips, arranged by David Reich, to meet Burkle and Field. Which amounted to extremely expensive voyeurism and a handjob, she says:
"When I was flown to New York for Ron or Teddy, we stayed in hotels. When they were in Vegas, we'd stay with them at the Mansions at the MGM, the Palazzos at the Rio and those villas at the Mirage. They always had the best of the best. Whenever I would go to Los Angeles to visit, there were day trips - the dumb photo shoots I would fall for. On those day trips we would always go to Teddy's house, which was phenomenal, and the photographer was awesome. The limo would pick us up from the airport. The best thing about Ted is that he would have accounts everywhere - we'd have lunch or go shopping on his accounts. Ron was less generous. I can only remember one time I had a good time with Ron. It was when David had me and my best friend flown to L.A. and we went to spend the night with Ron. He told me it was where JFK had affairs with Marilyn. We went to his house at the beach and he had a big thing of Mr. Bubble. He put it in the Jacuzzi, and he was relaxed, and we just had a great time.
"I never knew Ron to get rough with girls, but I did know him to be a dick. If he wasn't getting what he wanted, he would throw attitude. I think a lot of that had to do with David Reich, and it would kind of trickle down to how he treated girls: 'I'm going to my room, and you all can do whatever the fuck you want to do." So, we were just gambling on his dime at that point. He was resentful that we were on his dime. The one common thread with Ron and Ted was that they would watch girls get it on, or get hand jobs or blow jobs. They wouldn't have intercourse because they were afraid of AIDS, and they were both AIDS Foundation supporters."
Reich himself told Ebner he was friends with both Field and Burkle, but denies being a pimp for either of them and calls Burkle "the classiest guy I have ever met in my life, and he doesn't need any help getting women." Really?
