Monday night debuted of the highly anticipated Lifetime movie The Client List with Texas actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. In the movie, Hewitt plays Samantha Horton, a former Texas homecoming queen turned prostitute. Scroll down to view video.
After Samantha and her husband both loose their jobs, Samantha struggles to support her family to prevent them from losing their home. The mother of three looks for a physical therapist job, but cannot find one, so she takes a job at a full service massage parlor. Her husband is oblivious to her job duties until the massage parlor is busted by police for prostitution.
The Client List is inspired by the true story about the Healing Touch massage parlor in Odessa, Texas that was busted back in 2005. A total of 74 people, seven women and 67 men were arrested for participating in illegal activity at the parlor.
Hewitt’s production company bought the rights for the story after Odessa’s scandal became public. After the ladies were busted, the client list was exposed providing the names of community leaders and local businessmen who’d taken advantage of the business.
