Ex-Manhattan Madam: ABC News has ‘no balls’

Ex-Manhattan Madam Kristin Davis said ABC News should man up and air an interview they did with her claiming she supplied embattled IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn with call girls.

“I think the thing about ABC is that they really have no balls,” Davis told The Daily Caller.

Davis, who gained fame as the madam for former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, said she gave ABC’s Chris Cuomo an exclusive interview last week on the topic at ABC’s request and agreed not to do interviews with any other outlets until the piece ran. But it never did.

“They wanted the exclusive, so I turned down a bunch of TV shows and pushed some of them off until Monday,” she said.

Davis has made the allegation that Strauss-Kahn, a Frenchman recently accused of raping a hotel maid in New York, hired girls twice from her and was abusive with both. Davis said both Spitzer and Strauss-Kahn paid for liaisons with the same brunette call girl, Irma Nici.

Since the rape allegations, Strauss-Kahn has resigned from the International Monetary Fund.

Davis, who unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2010, said Cuomo told her on Friday that “there’s a chance we may not air this” as he had to “take it up the food chain and it’s not my call.”

She suggested the network was afraid to run the interview, but an ABC spokesman said the interview was cut because of time issues. The footage could be used in the future, the spokesman said.

But Davis said she isn’t holding her breath: “I don’t think they’re ever going to play it, but I hope they do.”
