Page Six – Ben Stein wrote in a bizarre magazine column last month that he’s still like a hormone-crazed teen who gets “mad crushes” on every beautiful woman he meets. But one woman targeted by the supposedly harmless Stein told Page Six on Monday that the 69-year-old married grandfather is nothing but a manipulative leech who gave her money — and then begged to “touch” her even though she’s pregnant. Tanya Ma, a 24-year-old pregnant performance artist, said she contacted Page Six to tell her story because she doesn’t “want him to continue to do this to women.” “It’s much more than sexting, cyber-escorting or being a sugar daddy — it’s unhealthy and toxic behavior that needs to be exposed,” insisted Ma, who lives in Grand Rapids, Mich. The Yale-educated former Nixon speech writer wrote that he was immediately smitten after first setting eyes on her at the San Francisco airport in the spring. She was “a stunningly beautiful, absolute knockout young Eurasian woman,” Stein wrote, and “we have been in touch almost every day since.” Tanya, who admits she briefly worked as an escort in Chicago, said that when she first met Stein, she thought he was interested in her as a fledgling author. “He said he’d read my blog, and I gave him my contact information,” she said. “We texted for about four months, then he asked me to send him pictures. He said he was very captivated and he just wanted to remember me. After a while, he started asking for more racy photos.” “He said his wife knew about everything,” Ma added. But Stein denied to The Post on Monday that he ever did anything untoward. “She is a person I have only met for less than five minutes at an airport. I have never touched her, I have never had any sexual contact with her. I should get a medal for helping this woman,” Stein said of Ma. “This is a person who appealed to me for money. She said she would send me some examples of her performance art. Some of those examples were racy, and some were not. Adding that the whole thing was like “a ‘Monty Python’ episode,” Stein said he simply urged Ma to write a book about her troubled childhood and told her he would help get it published. “Here’s the real story: Ben Stein has never had any criminal charge or any ethical blemish in his life, she tells him a sob story, he helps her out to the amount of thousands, she said she’s going to have a baby and the father of the baby wasn’t going to help her out,” he said. “I didn’t expect anything from her. Hugging and kissing doesn’t mean I wanted to f–k her. I said that explicitly in my text,” Stein said. “When is it wrong to hug people?”
Not even in my wildest dreams could I come up with a blog topic like this. I mean that genuinely – not just using it as a figure of speech. You know when you have the weirdest possible dreams where your second grade teacher shows up and is banging your dad or something absurd like that? Never, ever, ever would my subconscious concoct a scenario where Ben fucking Stein is sexting a pregnant chick sending her money so that he can hug and rub her. That is something I would assume I would never encounter in 500 million years. Yet here we are – front page featured story of the New York Post – Ben Stein and some Asian broad. Thank you, New York Post, just thank you.
Now on to this story – fuck Tanya Ma. Newsflash babe, you don’t get to cash in to the tune of $1,500 and still publicize his texts for being manipulative. It takes two to tango. Ben Stein sends you creepy texts asking to hug you and rub your pregnant gut and you get $1500. Thats a fair transaction. Thats money in exchange for services. You should know how this works – you used to be an escort. Like an actual hooker. You have sex and then you get money. Now admittedly I think its probably better to have actual intercourse with any other dude than to spoon with Ben Stein and let him rub your baby bump, but facts are facts. You engage in the texting and you Win Ben Stein’s Money and you lose any right to exposing him as manipulative.
