Bad news: Sexy Russian spy cashing in on sexiness

As part of the spy-swap deal that let her leave the country, flame-haired Russian sleeper agent Anna Chapman agreed to what U.S. officials said was a strict condition: she could not profit from her story. A plea-bargain document signed by Chapman and her lawyer lays out the terms: Chapman signed over to the U.S. government “any profits or proceeds” she might collect from peddling information related to “her person, her activities in the United States as an unlawful agent of the Russian Federation, or the facts and circumstances leading to [her] arrest and conviction.”…

Baum said by phone that he thought as long as Chapman limited her activities to “modeling, photo shoots and endorsements” she probably could avoid abrogating the plea deal. After she landed back in the former U.S.S.R, Chapman also signed a deal with the SVR, the new Russia’s successor to the Soviet KGB, which forbids her from revealing details of her secret life for reasons of operational security. However, since her return Chapman has become something of a national hero. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin spent time with her and her fellow spies, singing patriotic songs. And national political parties have indicated she could have a political career.
