Hot Dog Hooker defends lap dance

Forget bikini baristas. The big buzz around the web this week is the “hotdog hooker.”

Hot Dog Hooker

Catherine Scalia is back on the job after the 45-year old hot dog vendor got busted for prostitution after allegedly selling more than frankfurters from her Long Island cart.

But Scalia insists she actually wasn’t selling sex. The former topless dancer tells 97.3 KIRO FM’s Dori Monson she was merely offering to strip and lap dance, but she just happened to offer her services to an undercover cop.

“I told him just topless and lap dance like you would see in a topless bar. I gave him a topless lapdance then he wanted more,” said Scalia as Dori cut her off before she could actually describe what constituted “more.”

“I said ‘I don’t do that’ and the next thing I know the cuffs are on me and I was being charged with prostitution.”

Scalia told Dori she pleaded guilty to prostitution just to get out of jail. She agreed to seven days and a $200 fine.

“They do not have me on tape saying anything. They have no evidence,” she insisted.

The mother of four says she doesn’t see what all the fuss is about.

“I was merely doing it for fun to make a hundred bucks not to be handcuffed and thrown in jail.”

Scalia admits business isn’t exactly booming since she’s a bit past her prime, and she insists the cop was the first one who took her up on her offer for stripping since she opened the stand.

And she says despite her legal problems, she’s gladly embracing her new moniker if that’s what it takes to bring in more business.

“Everyone likes the story I’m just trying to move more wieners,” Scalia said.
