Prostitutes and gold diggers, and why I prefer to befriend the first one (Part 2)

2) Prostitutes are capable of keeping secrets, even if you’re rich and famous, while gold diggers will most probably brag and drop the names of the rich and famous that she knows.   We are somehow familiar with this.  Especially high end prostitutes, they have high end clients.  Name it. Politicians. Movie stars. Businessmen.  However, more often than not, you’ll be surprised that they’ll not disclose the names of their clients.  If you paid them for their service, you’ll see them gone.  If you paid them cheap, you’ll hear foul words or even bash your head, but definitely, you’ll not hear a word from them.  Rahab is one of the best examples of a prostitute capable of keeping secrets (although Josephus said that she is an inn keeper and Rashi said that she is a food seller.  However, I do believe that food selling was her day job and possibly a slang or front for her night job as a prostitute.  The epistles James and Hebrews also mentioned that she is a harlot).  Yes, she requested that she and her loved ones be spared if Joshua and his army attack Jericho, which is a normal thing to do if you give out information to spies.  However, you’ll see that, when the two spies went into hiding because men are searching for them, Rahab never squealed (Read Joshua 2), and these two spies are not even rich and famous.


Gold diggers, on the other hand, love to be identified with the rich and the famous.  Some gold diggers may sound humble, but are more of humble-brags than humble ones.  They’ll mention the places that they went.  When they are at malls, they are usually the hot tempered, irritable ones to a saleslady or a cashier, and Mr. Rich-and/or-Famous is the nice, quiet one.  However, on a negative note, gold diggers tend to go nasty when they don’t get what they have: they drop names of their benefactor in broad daylight, especially if the benefactor is a married one.  They’ll drag down their names.  If the gold digger is smart, she will use the occasion to damage the rich and famous guy’s reputation.  Some gold diggers will even try to get themselves pregnant when they are in the good situation and use their kid as leverage when the going gets tough.  Sad as it seems, they come to a point that they use their baby as tool for them to go one step further, I mean financially speaking.  I think I’ll not mention further.  But one thing is sure, when the damage was done by gold diggers, not only is the man’s public life scandalized, but his private life is also shattered.  More often than not, their wife will leave them.  If the man is not married, his job and career will be affected if he’ll not pull himself together.  True, no matter how terrible a man’s mistakes and blunders, he can move on, but I tell you, it’s such a headache and heartache before he eventually moves on.  Maybe you’re getting the picture.
