She considers Dennis Hof the love of her life.
The working girls at the BunnyRanch call her "Mom".
Madam Suzette: (On what she does to unwind when she is not working) I masturbate. No, I'm just kidding. I'm the sexless madam. I don't date. I don't have a husband. I usually just regroup to come back to work. I like to go on Ebay. In fact, I have a store on Ebay, "Madam Suzette's Boudoir." I love to travel when I get a chance. I do get a couple of weeks off every year and Denis let's me go anywhere I want in the world.
Madam Suzette: (On the biggest misconceptions people have when they first come to the BunnyRanch) They don't realize that it is a business and is run by a businessman. We have housekeepers. We have food. We cater to the girls. The girls are clean. They go to the doctor and are cleared every week by the doctor. There has never been a case of HIV positive ever in the history of legalized prostitution. You can't say that about any other profession in the United States, and we're really proud about that. We have girls that are grooming their way through college to be lawyers or nurses or real estate agents.
Madam Suzette: (On if anything shocks her at this point) No. When I first starting working here, I thought I was really hip. Were talking about in 1983. I thought I was a woman of the world, but I was living a very naive life until I started working here. Nothing shocks me - absolutely nothing. Some of the men that come in want to be like women, and you get women that are dykes that want to be with the girls. You get all different types here – and they're just people too. They are the nicest people because they are real. This is the real world, out there is "phony land."
Madam Suzette: (On what her job is at Moonlite BunnyRanch) Well, I am the general manager and we're a 24-hour business, so I am on call 24-7. I do work a lot of hours (about 65 hours every week) and when I'm off, I'm still on call. I make sure that we have cashiers, bartenders, housekeeping, drivers, maintenance people and then also the girls. I get hundreds of applications and thousands of e-mails a day from girls trying to get in here to work. I only have 28 rooms, so we are very selective. There's no way I could talk to everybody, but I do answer everybody's e-mail and then hopefully they will also get a phone call back from Dennis or I for a little talk over the phone. That's when we explain how things work and how they can start working here, so they can make all the money and start having fun.
Madam Suzette: (On when she applied for a position at the Moonlite BunnyRanch) About 1983, I saw this tiny, little ad in the newspaper and it said, "Help Wanted - Hostess Wanted." Before that, I was in between jobs. I was a court reporter for a couple years, and then I was a cocktail waitress. So, I have a lot of people skills and a business background.
I called up and they said, "Moonlite BunnyRanch, how may we help you?" I was so shocked it was the Moonlite that I hung up the phone. I thought it was so taboo. I ended up calling back again later because I was curious to see what it was really like. They gave me directions to come in to apply, and then when I got there they hired me on the spot as a hostess. My job would be to answer the door, introduce the girls to the customers and keep the parlor up.
