Rachel Uchitel Inspires Little Girls Everywhere to Be One Step Up from a HookerS

The news that Tiger mistress #1 was not just a mistress—but a madam—has provided a generation of supple young minds with a new dream job: "nightlife concierge" to the rich and sexy.

In an inspiring bit of career exploration called "The Not-Quite Madams," The New York Observer interviews a guy who currently holds one of Rachel Uchitel's old jobs:

"People have actually gotten very interested in this profession and what she used to do exactly. ... Our job is like a concierge service for nightlife. It's catering to our celebrities, bankers, trust-fund kids, billionaires, anyone who wants that special experience," he explained.

Concierges: the Ivy League admissions officers of vice.

"If it's bankers, they might want to be seated next to a bunch of cute girls, so we hire promoters who bring girls in. A lot of it is just making sure they have a good time-arranging a limo driver or going with them if they get too drunk; if they want food, I'll order it; I plan travel and vacations. It's a service-anything they want, I get it for them. Often, I'll gather up a lot of girls and we'll take clients to dinner."

This growth industry is chock full of zeitgeist. Why, look who makes a cameo—our good friend Taek Jho Low! Though Jho Low has been described as a concierge to scary international arms-dealer tycoons, turns out even concierges needs concierging sometimes:

The job in VIP relations, or "hosting," as it's euphemistically known, was born out of the bottle-service decade, when billionaires and celebrities began to spend $10,000 or $20,000 at a table-or $160,000, as a Malaysian billionaire named Taek Jho Low recently did at the Avenue Lounge in Chelsea-and someone, preferably a busty girl, was needed to provide the sort of hospitality worth spending money on.

It's a razor-thin line from "busty concierge" to "busty party girl," but somebody's got to cross it. [NYO]
