Ted Haggard's escort: 'I lost everything'

Escort-to-the-evangelical-stars Mike Jones has just published an autobiography detailing his trysts with disgraced preacher man Ted Haggard. Life ain't been a bed of roses since Jones, 50, went public, according to a recent New York Times Q&A with him:

NYT: As the male escort who outed Ted Haggard, the celebrity preacher and former head of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, it was probably inevitable that you would write a memoir about your affair with him. Are you concerned that your new book, I Had to Say Something, exploits his sorrows for financial gain?

Jones: No. I received a very small advance for the book. And when I decided to come out with the story last year, I lost everything. I lost all my massage clients; I lost all my personal-training clients. I got fired from my modeling job at the art school.
