WWE Flashback: Cops Swoop Down on Secret NYC Brothels, Art Reveals He's a Very Frequent Client
Back in 2005, law enforcement officers raided a secret chain of brothels in New York City run by a convicted drug dealer named Julie Moya. During the swoop down, cops arrested 25 people -- including 15 prostitutes, several johns, a phone operator and security guards -- and seized about $2,000 in cash and drugs. Police say the hookers charged johns between $200 and $400 for a variety of sex acts. This sort of story was ripe for the show and while Wendy read the details, Arthur J Evans b/k/a Art or "Artie Life of the Party" (who was the producer of "The Experience) perked up, enthusiastically admitting he's a VIP or "premier customer" of the brothels, which had five secret locations in NYC. He told Wendy he "takes all his boys there for there birthdays," he goes there when "gets bored" or when he "wants an Asian chick." He said he paid between $250 and $300 for, ahem, services. His mother, Ms Gladys and her church sisters must've clutched their pearls after hearing this revelation. As he often said, a toe is a toe.
Sidebar: Julie pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution in exchange for a promised prison term of 2 1/2 to 5 years. Prosecutors agreed to drop 55 other charges, including allegations that she had prostituted a 15-year-old girl.
