From teacher ... to porn star


You know we're in a really bad economy when a healthy, attractive, 31-year-old Florida teacher can't get a job and so turns to appearing in porn films to make a living.

I mean, where the hell is a healthy 52-year-old supposed to find work if she's unemployed? Laundering the bedsheets after the scene is filmed? (Don't answer that -- it was rhetorical question!)

Now, to be fair, there's more to the teacher's story. Her name is Tiffany Shepherd, she taught biology at Port St. Lucie High School, and she brough a rainstorm of shit down on her head back in April when she let herself be photographed in a teensy-weensy bikini while moonlighting as a hostess on a fishing charter (to make ends meet as a single mom, apparently). And, surprise! -- the photos surfaced, the prudes at the school balked, and she was fired (though the school claimed that it was due to unexcused absences -- natch!).

Shepherd says she sent out 2,500 resumes – some even to prisons – without landing a new teaching job. Then, she lost custody of two of her three kids to her ex-husband. So, in desperation, she turned to Internet porn under the acting name Leah Lust, and making videos such as My First Sex Teacher (ugh! -- oh, and can you say ironic?).

This is all very, very sad -- for reasons too numerous to count.
