On Monday, January 25, at 10pm Showtime will air a first on-camera interview between Billie Piper and the real "Belle De Jour."
Captured on camera for the first time, Billie Piper meets the woman she has portrayed in the SHOWTIME hit series "Secret Diary of a Call Girl." For six years she was known only as "Belle de Jour," publisher of an infamous sex blog and several best-selling books. Readers had long speculated about her identity. Two months ago, Brooke Magnanti stepped out of the shadows to reveal herself as the real "Belle." Magnanti, who is now a neuroscientist, joined Piper in a London hotel room to lift the cover off the world's oldest profession. In the half-hour conversation she imparts secrets of the trade, offers anecdotes about some of her most amusing encounters, reflects on her regrets (she has a few) and giggles as she shares what she considers her greatest assets.
The special half-hour episode which airs on SHOWTIME Monday, January 25th at 10 PM is an intimate, candid, funny peek inside the diary of a real call girl.
It will air as the kick-off to the third season of "Secret Diary of a Call Girl." Regular episodes begin on Monday, February 1st at 10 PM.
