Journalist accused of being blogger

"I'm shocked. To be accused of being a whore is one thing, but to be accused of being a weblogger is actionable."

This is all part of the ongoing joke as to the real identity of prostitute blogger Belle de Jour. An expert tried to use Google to search for patterns to find the real identity of Belle. One trail lead to Andrew Orloski, based on patterns the expert claimed indicated a male writer.

I prefer to think that Belle de Jour is real. We have discussed the site before and have had some contact with Belle. According to Belle in a March 23 blog:

"Wasn't it Tallulah Bankhead who said only good girls keep diaries and bad girls haven't the time? I'm setting out to prove her wrong."
