Desiree Taylor, 27, told a London tabloid, the People, she's ready to tell all about her career in alleged Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss' flock, but she identified her hot-tub customers only by allowing that the actor is a household name, one of the world's most desirable men, and a member of a well- known show-biz family.
