Sounds like a pile of BS to me.  Think about it- the guys 69 years old, he has a career that's impressive no mater how you look at it.  Do you really think he'd be stupid enough to allow himself to be set up by a 24 year old woman to be extorted for money?

The guy worked for Nixon. He's always been a creep.

Happens all the time.

Everyone is a strange creeper. He just has the balls to follow through.
 
2014-07-22 01:46:25 AM  
Strange yes, creeper no.

It's Ben Farking Stein. He wanted sexy pics from a hooker. If you don't like sending sexy pics, why are you online street walking?

Imagine this if sex wasn't involved.

Former Chef: Oh, you'll be in town next week? Let's meet at my kitchen.
Customer: Oh, sweet. Are we gonna cook something. Aw man, send me a recipe I'll pic up the stuff.
Customer: Your cooking is so good. I just love it.
Customer: I really respect all the effort you're putting into your career.

Former Chef: I can't believe Customer asked me for a recipe. I'm not even hungry right now. Customer is an evil person and must be stopped. Buy my book!

Extract from his wiki page:

In a Trinity Broadcasting Network interview with Paul Crouch Jr. regarding Stein's movie, Stein made the following statement about science and religion:[54]

Stein: When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. Myers, talking about how great scientists were, I was thinking to myself the last time any of my relatives saw scientists telling them what to do they were telling them to go to the showers to get gassed ... that was horrifying beyond words, and that's where science-in my opinion, this is just an opinion-that's where science leads you.


So, to answer your question: yes.

"When you get here i want to hug and kiss you. I understand you don't want to f-k me. But i want to touch you and kiss you."

Ewwwwww.

I've never really liked Ben Stein, considered him a crank who's only gotten worse with time but that right there creeps me out *and* makes me pity him all at the same time..

From an article that he wrote recently:

When I am traveling, I am extremely outgoing. I meet a lot of different people. In my mind, I am a young Southern politician. I go up to each person who looks at all interesting and say something like, "Hi, I'm George Wallace and if there's anything I can do for you here in Clio, Alabama, just let me know." I see each person I meet as a door into that person's world, often magical and mystical.

Just a few examples: About ten days ago, I flew up to SFO and went on to the wine country to speak to some fabulously smart and kind and attractive men and women from Wells Fargo. As I walked through SFO in search of my driver, I came across a stunningly beautiful, absolute knockout young Eurasian woman. She was lying on a bench right next to where my driver was supposed to be, so I sat down next to her and chatted her up.

I spoke to her for at most-absolutely most-five minutes. She told me she was half-Vietnamese and half-Dutch. She gave me her contact info and we have been in touch almost every day since.

Here's her story, in brief. Father was a Vietnamese Army soldier captured by the Communists in 1975. He was roughly handled at a re-education camp. But he got to leave and he made his way to the American Midwest. There, he married a sweet-faced woman of Dutch extraction.

They produced my little pal, whom I will call Lucia. The father died from the mental stress of the war and torture. The mother left Lucia with her aunt to marry a man who then came back with the mother and molested innocent little Lucia sexually. Then Lucia ran away from home and was homeless in Chicago for a period of time, and then became a call girl.

Then she stopped doing that and became a social activist and now she is working as a waiter and a stock clerk and also wants to be a writer.

Specifically, she wants Ben Stein to help her become a writer. She wants an agent-bad news for her since my literary agent, Lois Wallace, just died. She wants me to teach her how to be famous and successful as a writer-as if I knew. For a while I was churning out bestsellers right and left, especially about finance. But now I mostly write opinion pieces about defense and right to life and tax policy. I also write this diary about my daily life in Hollywood, politics, North Idaho, and Washington, D.C. I cannot teach Lucia how to write about her life the way I write about mine.

Now, it may be that the young woman has talent and will write beautiful prose about her compelling story. I hope she does. Certainly, she has interesting subject matter. Just today, I got a text from her saying that it so happens that she's pregnant. She had been up in SFO having a romantic rendezvous with a young man, but she decided she didn't like him and he didn't like her. So they broke up. But, now she's pregnant.

"I really didn't like him that much," she texted me. "I just wasn't into him that much."

"Well, you must have been into him pretty much and he must have been very much into you because you're carrying his baby."

"I know," she said, "but I'll just be a single mom. Will you help me out?"

I am so pro-life that I can never say no in these cases but I am worried about it.

So, that's one little part of the many lives of Ben Stein.


He sounds like a self-absorbed psycho.

2014-07-22 08:33:52 AM  
biatch was like "this creeper's got contacts and he's rich and horny. I'm gonna lead his ass on and get what I can." From reading the texts SHE posted it's pretty clear that was her plan. Unfortunately for her plan, the gravy train wanted to start giving her the gravy - and since old Ben was already giving an admitted hooker money, why shouldn't that happen?
I'm guessing he finally wised up and cut her off, and she's trying to shame him now before she sends out anything more embarrassing.
And as doglover pointed out...

doglover: Buy my book!

And that right there is the key issue. Celebrities who agree with farkers' political leanings aren't creepy when they do stuff like this, they're eccentric.
 
2014-07-22 08:43:39 AM  
so a hooker is creeped out that one of her johns doesn't screw her and instead develops a crush on her?  yeah, I guess getting attached to a nasty money-grubbing whore like that is pretty creepy.

some prostitutes just don't do anal, some don't do GFE apparently.

It's only creepy because it's an unattractive man. Otherwise, it would be a romantic comedy

From the same article:

Just to give you an idea of how badly off I was, I went with Bob to a Waffle House and could not even eat there. I did meet three adorable co-eds from Georgia Regents University and they were the brightest spots of the day by far. Pretty, enthusiastic, polite...I love Southern girls
Today, we had a tour of Augusta, a lovely city on the Savannah River, and then a cocktail party at a golf course clubhouse. The guests could not have been more pleasant. There was a staggeringly gorgeous woman working at the party. Just a super beauty. I might add that if she had been any more polite she would have been an impossibility. But wow, where do these gorgeous Southern women come from? What is it? Genetics? Attitude? Something.
The audience for the speech was great. Got all of my jokes. APPLAUDED AT THE RIGHT MOMENTS. Gave me a long standing ovation. We love Augusta. No sign of the beautiful cocktail party girl but the three glorious co-eds were there, beaming, cheerful, lovely. I think I will bring them out to L.A. on granddad's jet.

/I'm sure lots of rich old men dream of inviting pretty coeds onto their jets for totally non-creep reasons.

I thought it wasn't anyone else's business what people's sexual kinks were...oh, right, he's not in the approved group. Forgot you're only entitled to be a sexual being if you're a leftist or a woman.

Wow.

Can't tell if that is pathos and he is asking for help, or if he really is that delusional. Not sure which is worse.

Here's the thing, though - he's always been like that. This isn't new. It's just that, now, it's creepier and less acceptable, and so we "discover" that Ben Stein's a narcissistic pervert.

cabbyman: Whore attempts blackmail.

NEWS AT 11!!!!


Really? Here's the thing, though:

"I didn't expect anything from her. Hugging and kissing doesn't mean I wanted to f-k her. I said that explicitly in my text," Stein said. "When is it wrong to hug people?"

...apparently confirming that, yes, he had a text conversation with her in which the quote, "When you get here i want to hug and kiss you. I understand you don't want to f-k me. But i want to touch you and kiss you.", was stated. As she has a screen shot of that conversation, containing that quote, and given that quote came at the end of, not the start of, that conversation, and given that conversation contained, prior to that quote, some rather nasty and manipulative posts, yes, while her motives for releasing that conversation may be suspect, the contents of that conversation appear genuine.

She may be fishing for cash, but that doesn't change the fact that he's a creepy, narcissistic, manipulative asshole, at least from that conversation.
 
2014-07-22 09:15:43 AM  

skinink: Not saying she's wrong in her accusations, but as an admitted former escort ut seems like a money grab.


She's exploiting a nasty conversation for attention and money. Doesn't change the contents of that conversation, though.

"I didn't expect anything from her. Hugging and kissing doesn't mean I wanted to f-k her. I said that explicitly in my text," Stein said. "When is it wrong to hug people?"

I thought it was interesting that he admitted this much.

I think they're both narcissistic sociopaths.
 
2014-07-22 09:17:08 AM  
She's not that difficult to find on the internet. By performance artist, apparently she seems to have gotten some tattoos and shows them.

Anyone is allowed to have sexual kinks. You need to find consenting adults who want to join you, not continue to pursue the ones who have said no. Ben Stein is rich, you can't tell me he couldn't find some other young pretty thing who'd be happy to bone him. Sounds like he expected sexual contact of some sort for helping her out... if that's the case, he should have mentioned that up front, not acted like he was this noble older gentleman just trying to help out when what he was really trying to do was buy some pussy.

Clearly, his behavior was beyond reproach, and she's just a confused little girl who doesn't understand his magnanimous and noble gesture. Makes my teeth itch at the dishonesty.

Can't you block numbers with the iPhone?  That seems like a simple fix to this problem.
