Gold Diggers' New Ugly Reality

It's entitled simply, "Desperately Seeking Sugar Daddies."

A sad snapshot of today's times offered in this past weekend's New York Post's Page Six Magazine.

Joshua David Stein laments the plight of young, buxom gold diggers these days, who find the digging tougher because the targets are fewer.

And suddenly these beauties are seeing an ugly reality: They're no longer hot because their equally shallow suitors simply no longer are there.

The very high-rolling bankers and brokers who sought these ladies out as arm-candy have themselves been elbowed out of their jobs. And these women, some not much more than 23, elbowed out of $500 dinners and $8,000 shopping sprees as well.

They've gone from limo to loser faster than a triple-digit Dow swing. But they aren't swinging — though they are desperately adjusting.

One talks about how she's broadened her hunt: "You used to hear women say, I'd never date anyone who makes less than $1 million. You don't hear that anymore."

Oh, the inhumanity!

Women who judged their worth by the net worth of the equally plastic princes who used to wine and dine them until their plastic ran out.

One talks about a laid-off Lehman worker who suddenly never calls. And another who spends long nights in New York's swankiest bars without fetching so much as a glance.

They lived their lives off others' dimes and now, the dimes have run out.

It's closing time, for them, and maybe an era.

And now these charmed beauties must consider the unthinkable: a job.
