Her book's called A Gold Digger's Guide. She teaches "apprentices" how to get gifts from men without falling in love. Hell, she wears gold eyeshadow. So while neither Kanye nor I is saying she's a gold digger, that's just because Baje Fletcher has no trouble saying it herself.
The 26-year-old author, actress ("Paris Hilton's My New BFF"), music video dancer (most recently, Kanye's "Love Lockdown"), and entrepreneur aims to teach "how to get what you want, without giving it up." You know: it. "You don't ever tell him up front that you're not going to sleep with him and never meet alone or in secluded areas," Fletcher says. "It's about using your mind and planning ahead."
Skeptical? Fletcher's house, Bentley, college degree, and collection of Gucci and Louis Vuitton purses have been financed by the great men of Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach. Fletcher called South Florida home in 2007 and 2008, and she stopped by our newsroom last week. After the jump, her favorite local places to pick up sugar daddies:
"In Delray, the men are mature, focused, and goal-oriented. I can learn things from them, like business etiquette. There are always Bentleys and Rolls-Royces around Cugini, and there's nice jazz music playing down the block."
"It's a hotel that has a couple pf lounges attached where yachts sail right up to you -- literally, you can step right off a yacht and step right in the party, which is often outside."
Gansevoort Hotel South Beach (rooftop bar)
"I have an easier time in Miami -- men come here to blow money. Here, they have nice pool parties there, and an awesome steak house, STK, on the first floor. It's chic and sexy -- there's a huge fish tank by the check-in area with a shark in it! Plus there's a nice women's boutique in the lobby. Dresses average between $400 and $900."
NEVER GO TO: Wet Willie's
"Oh lord. You're not going to get very far there. I don't have any stories from Wet Willie's, besides me walking right on by."
