Anthony Weiner’s Sexting Pal ‘Sydney Leathers’ Did A Bikini Photo Shoot For The New York Post

Unless you’ve been living under a rock with no internet, you know that Sydney Leathers is not, in fact, the doorman at an exclusive gay BDSM club, but the woman to whom Anthony Weiner most recently sent pictures of his penis (that we know of). She is disgusted by “Carlos Danger” and his sext-scandal-having ways, but apparently not too disgusted to do a sexy bikini photo shoot for the official newspaper of classy people, The New York Post.

Published EXCLUSIVELY in The Post earlier today, the shoot features “Sydney” frolicking in one of New York’s many crystal-clear bodies of water in what I think we can all agree is an unflatteringly diaper-like high waisted bikini. In a Facebook post promoting the shoot, The Post probes, “So we have to ask: Hot or not?” Why, it’s almost like they did this with the conscious intention of inciting body-snarking and subsequent feminist backlash. How very 21st century!

This has sparked many thoughtful comments thus far, including “How abouttttttt…. ….not glamorizing these whores?” (because everything is women’s fault), “She is Nasty in her granny’s two piece” (I like how Nasty is important enough to this person to get capitalized), and “Man the harpoons!!!” (Get it, because she is fat like a whale? Ha! Ha!) Conversely, one humorless harridan writes, “Hey NY Post… Don’t slam Weiner for crappy behavior when you’re being incredibly sexist… and have regularly, for decades, posted bikini shots of women.”

My first impulse is to feel mortified for this woman, but hey, let’s look on the bright side: former Eliot Spitzer employee Ashley Dupre was similarly exploited by The Post and was subsequently hired to give people advice in that very same paper, a position which she has since parlayed into a successful R&B career. Sydney Leathers knows what the fuck she’s doing and Sydney Leathers will have the last laugh.

    I’m not sure why Leathers finds Weiner disgusting and I’m not sure it matters (but if it’s part of the story maybe include it?). I’m also not sure why you’re shaming Leathers for wearing a bikini.

      I think I was pretty clear that I am not shaming her for wearing a bikini. I am shaming the New York Post for shooting her in an intentionally unflattering way and then baiting people with “HOT OR NOT???” And okay, yes, I am shaming her a little bit for saying she’s disgusted by this scandal on the one hand, and trying to use it to get famous, on the other.

      And it really is a very unflattering bikini.

    No, she will definitely not have the last laugh. She is Monica 2013. “Why did he ignore his beautiful wife for that?” is the predominant sentiment. Fair or not, this is the end of Weiner’s campaign.

      Actually, in Monica Lewinsky’s case, I remember every interviewer commenting something along the lines of, “In person, it’s amazing how attractive, intelligent, and personable she is.” All I can say about this woman is at least the affair appears to be consensual, and at least he wasn’t her boss.

    It’s not “always blaming the woman” or “blaming the victim” to point out that Leathers willingly is making money and taking advantage of her five minutes of fame. Do you think she did this shoot for free? Apparently, she has always been desperate for fame. She is a person of very low character. And, like so many Obama idiots, she is a drug-addled, tattooed, Marxist high school dropout who wants to make it the easy way instead of through hard hard work.

      LOL

    no wonder Weiner stuck to sexting this blubbery mess… what guy could get a hard on in the presence of her trainwreck of a body?
