Infamous Escort “Classy Cissy” Claims She has DA in Her Pocket!

And not the one in her pants! Anyway someone claiming to be the now near legendary “Classy Cissy” aka Elizabeth Anne Winter dropped by an old post I wrote about escorts being targeted for robbery and left a series of what I assume are drunken comments that seem to indicate she thinks I’ve offended Jesus by blogging about hookers on a crime blog. Also if I had a female relative who turned tricks I’d be more accepting of turning tricks or whatever.

Before I continue let me give you some background on this. I’ve never written about “Classy Cissy” but I had heard about this story, because it’s pretty crazy. She owned a deli with her mother and for some reason decided she’s start “escorting” on the side. The police caught wind of this and hilarity ensued:

SHELBY — Police say a restaurant owner moonlighting as a high-end escort was arrested in an undercover prostitution sting Thursday.

Elizabeth Anne Winter, 53, agreed to perform sex acts with an undercover Shelby Police Department detective for two hours at a price of $600, according to a magistrate’s order. Winter owns the Winter House deli at 219 E. Marion St., where she worked with her mother for more than three decades.

Winter met the undercover detective, who told her his name was Chuck, at the Holiday Inn Express on East Dixon Boulevard. Police Chief Jeff Ledford said tipsters had alerted officers to Winter’s possible involvement in prostitution.

“It really unfolded like a lot of these cases do,” Ledford said. “If someone sees it and suspects it and they let us know, we take the ball and run with it.”

The detective was in contact with Winter for several weeks before the Thursday night appointment. Ledford didn’t say what happened during the sting, but said such undercover operations are “choreographed to meet the elements of the crime.”

After the arrest, police learned that Winter maintained an escort website called Classy Cissy North Carolina, Ledford said.

Now the verbose commenter who claims to be Winter has made an outlandish claim in one of her mini-screeds:

BTW: After all was said and done the DA called me into his office and wanted to know if I would like to have an affair or Friends with Benefit’s with him every Saturday morning.Told me I could have all the free advice and protection I wanted.

Justice? And what was it you said about a pimp. I guess my new pimp is the DA…….Totally the truth. Classy Cissy

Yeah, right. Now, let me say right now I do not believe this for a second. If I may wax philosophic for a second I’ve been around a long time and I’ve lived a full life. I’ve met all kinds of people and for you younger readers out there you’re going to come to the same understanding about people I have when you’re my age. I won’t ruin it for you but basically, everyone you ever met will be pretty much like the people you know now, hopefully more mature. There are no precious snowflakes out there and there is no one out there that’s unique.

That said believe me when I tell you that women who aren’t being pimped out but who turn tricks, “high end” or not, are usually drug addicts and the ones who are not addicts have some issue where they need to comodify their sexuality in away that isn’t satisfied by just picking up rich dudes in bars. I don’t know that Winter does or does not do drugs but let’s say she doesn’t. Let’s say she just decided that to unwind while running a deli by meeting strangers online for sex and charging them money like a hooker. People like that tend to lie, including to themselves.

I don’t know if this person is lying to be important but I do know this is an outrageous attack on a public official if it is a lie. If it’s true this corruption is borderline evil since the DA is taking advantage of someone who clearly needs some sort of help. Personally I think it’s a lie.

I’m sure there’s some litigious lawyer out there willing to sue ‘Classy Cissy” for damages. And if you’re a public official making arraignments with crazy broads you should make sure they’re discreet.

    This is Elizabeth Winter. All of the above is nonsense. I did not make those posts period. Someone told me about them and I was horrified.

    If you want the truth and not the he said, she said. Please email me at

    All I have to say is you really went the extra mile to try and make me stand out. Goody, Goody. The picture you found was taken back in 2006.

    Classy Cissy website is gone and has been for quite some time………..and no I am not seeing LE……..How stupid is that????? Elizabeth

    Ewwww, she’s so old……

  3. Bill Chapman on September 30th, 2012 10:02 am

    So is Cher , Madonna, Brittney Spears, and many models. What is your point. Bill

  4. Rob Taylor on September 30th, 2012 5:58 pm

    You think Brittney Spears is old? She’s not even 40!

  5. Bill Chapman on November 28th, 2012 3:55 am

    I have to kind of laugh. For living in a Bible belt, all these idiots who claim to follow Christianity, I feel have forgotten who the so called Jesus was. He came , broke the law of the so called Pharisees, kicked ass, was a rebel and the people he choose to be beside him hmmm were a bit like him a rebel.

    The outcome I believe as the story goes…says he did not bow down to false idols, or ideas, was definitely not a people pleaser and my God the outcome he changed a nation. (Or did he??)

    Hmm. The word did say that judgement of human kind was not an option. Are you judging or making an obsevation of facts? If so what are the facts? Your opinion is worthless unless it based on facts. Birds of a feather flock together. Eagles fly alone.
    What kind of bird are you? ( Black Crow….Google it……..yuck)

    The “Bible” does quote Jesus saying to “His”disciples…go out in two’s and teach the word, if you are not wanted in one land, “Dust off your feet and go to another land.” Hope she goes to another land. Seems way to special of a person who is bringing a message of other’s to judge her.

    I’m not a Christian so I have no opinion on your claim to be a better one than others, though since I have a degree in Comparative Religion and studied Christianity I would say that bearing false witness by lying about DAs is a sin and if she’s not lying corrupting the system is something Jesus frowned on in Christian belief.

  7. Bill Chapman on December 5th, 2012 5:10 am

    “I’m not a Christian so.” Thank God.

    “I have a degree in Comparative Religion.” And your point is….?????

    “And studied Christianity” And your point is???

    “Bearing false witness by lying about DAs is a sin.” Answer, you are not christain, you are not God, you are not judge, and you are assuming what?
    To Assume. Ass, u, me??? What is the point?

    “Jesus frowned on in Christian belief.” And the point is????

  8. Rob Taylor on December 5th, 2012 8:27 pm

    The point is that you’re claiming that as a Christian people shouldn’t judge sin – which you know is contrary to Christian belief. Jesus did not say not to judge or only God can judge, he said

    “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

    In other words Know Thyself and judge yourself as truly as you judge others. Jesus in this passage (Matthew 7-1) is saying that you should judge others (take the speck out of your brother’s eye)but not try to escape the same judgement for yourself.

  9. Bill Chapman on December 16th, 2012 2:27 pm

    Do you have any quotes of your own? Or are you so foolish to only quote what other people say, including the “Christians, Bible etc?”

    Birds of a feather flock together, (You must understand this one, mediorce,,,,,like yourself Eagles fly alone.

  10. Rob Taylor on December 17th, 2012 6:43 am

    If I said it how would it be a quote moron? But putting the term Christian Bible in quotes proves you’re pretty desperate here.

  11. classycissy on January 8th, 2013 4:52 am

    If I said it how would it be a quote moron? (You)

    Me: Moron in the Medical dictionary – Moron in Charge – Psychology – Moroni

    Psychology A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some …

    You:But putting the term Christian Bible in quotes proves you’re pretty desperate here.

    Me: Your words pretty much speak for themselves. How sad. Yes, you have proved you are not a Christian. Christains I do not believe behave or speak this way.

    You said….
    But putting the term Christian Bible in quotes proves you’re pretty desperate here.

    Hmmm. “Who is desperate here? I tell the truth. I do not have to quote other people’s words as you do to prove who I am or what I believe in. So if goes.

    God ask Noah to build an arch. He told him to get 2 of every animal. That the world was corrupt and he would wash away all the badness.

    People came by every day and made fun of Noah’s Arch. However the animal’s and people who were on it lived, the others were either washed away or died. Who are you any way??? My name is Cissy, nice to meet you.

    Now what is the definition of Moran???. And No, I am not desperate. Why would say anything like that???.Unless you may in fact look like a moran yourself. Who is desperate here??? I ask you to speak next……..

  12. Rob Taylor on January 8th, 2013 12:22 pm

    A) You’re not allowed to promote illegal business here.

    B) Do you mean moron? And Noah built an Ark not an arch.

    C) I assume you got high before writing this because I don’t follow. Why are you re-capping the comments and are you really comparing getting paid to blow people to being Noah from Christian and Jewish Myth?

    All this junk is no more than crappy bull . EW has been unjustly crucified by you people. You big bunch of hypocrites.

  14. Rob Taylor on February 6th, 2013 7:43 pm

    To be a hypocrite I would have to be a hooker who ran around the Internet claiming I had my own corrupt DA in my pocket while bashing this chick. What you mean is that you don’t like me bashing her because you don’t think it’s a big deal – I disagree as I think corruption is a huge deal.

    You know you talk way to much and have no idea what you say and I guess have not been keeping up with the news. Bill Young Retired in December. Any comments about corruption now.

    You my friend or should I say know it all have not listened to a word that has been said in this whole dialogue. You may be suffering from OCD which is obsessives’ compulsive disorder, or you are showing signs of bi-polor. However, you may want to go your your shrink and learn how to calm down. Learn how to shut up and listen for a change.
    Whatever the reason for your arrogant . You have made of mockery and a fool of yourself.

  16. Rob Taylor on April 13th, 2013 2:04 am

    Why would him retiring change the corruption. If she’s telling the truth it just means he no longer has the means to be corrupt but doesn’t mean he wasn’t. You see that right?

  17. Aaron on May 12th, 2013 10:27 am

    Rob Taylor is the only person in this debate that isn’t frothing at the mouth, spewing facile, illogical or downright irrelevant arguments or hunting for blood like some kind of modern day witch hunters. The rest of you would better serve the religion you profess by remaining silent; you’re making christians appear to be a vast flock of gibbering fools that believe anything their preacher tells them.

  18. Classy Cissy on July 20th, 2014 4:51 am

    Sad but true, the DA, Bill Young did lose his job. I was told by my lawyer to get out of town because a person who had a perfect record of 30 years in the DA Office, that I could easily be disposed of.

    I did move out of town, and I had no idea that the DA Bill Young had stepped down voluntary. I might add that his so called buddy the Editor of The Shelby Dailey Star, Skipped Foster who had exploited me for 10 months by putting my picture ,where I lived and where I worked before I was put in front of a judge resigned. His wife who was a Judge also resigned and they moved to Florida.

    All charges of prostitution were dropped. End of story………..

    Cissy, if that picture was taken in 06′. Wow! You’re beautiful. Oh, and I miss lunch at the Winter House

    I only recently heard this story (couple days ago) from someone currently living on East Main Street in Shelby. I lived next door to her and family until 1973 when we moved. Last time I saw her she was about 14.

    The funniest thing I remember is that she used to carry matches around striking them, then eating the burned head off the matches. I never understood that! LOL

    I remember when her mother opened Winter House Deli (maybe in a different location), along with a lot of other childhood memories. Her father wasn’t around much.

    As childhood friends with her and her fraternal twin brother Michael, she was like any youngster.

    The family had some demons (don’t we all?), such as her now deceased misfit brother David and troubled soul other brother Billy (adopted, I think).

    I haven’t seen her in 40+ years, so have no frame of reference concerning her adult life. I say “to each their own” and have no issue with her life choices. Best of luck to her. No one should wish bad for someone, even in the anonymity of the web.

    I’m sorry that the Winter House Deli didn’t work for her. Sometimes life just deals you a crappy hand.

  22. Classy Cissy on November 29th, 2014 9:58 am

    I am not sure who you are, yet I appreciate you bringing back memories of my childhood. I do want to say that David who died in a car wreck at the age of 20 was my youngest and favorite brother. I was the oldest of the twins, between me and mike and I guess the care taker.

    One of the reasons my youngest brother had so many problems is because the way my Dad treated him. He was also ADDh and Mom did not want to put him on Ritalin. He was a genius and he brought many happy thoughts and laughter into my life and others.

    He had many friends and although he did have a rough beginning it was because of the way my father treated him, and he rebelled. What can I say. He was good and true at heart and I miss him very much.

    My brother Bill did have red hair. We were German, Irish, so go figure, he was born with red hair and blue eyes and is living in Colorado. He has a wonderful marriage, a beautiful wife, and daughter who is turning 17. I think Bill turned out to be the most fruitful of the bunch. He was not adopted, yet again that is what my father told him and my Mother, and he was not treated very well either.

    I agree, that judgement should not be our job, and the media did a toll on me. The Restaurant did not work out, yet, hey I tried to bring back some childhood dreams. It is what it is.

    As far as the Media, all I have to say is a quote from Mark Twain. When you read the news you are informed, when you read the news you are misinformed.

    Thanks so much for sharing… was nice to read unbiased story from the media, yet, from your own observations since you lived in our neighborhood.

    Sincerely, Cissy

  23. SinObyte on December 15th, 2014 5:32 pm

    Hi Cissy:

    I lived next door to you for many years, moving from Shelby to CLT in 1973. I enjoyed much time with you and Mike. I have recently talked with Chester and he tells me Bill grew up to be quite a good and successful man. Congrats to him.

    Feel free to contact me at We’ll reminisce. I have fond memories of my childhood in Shelby and have been trying to contact some of my childhood friends. Each contact fills in 42 years of blanks and generally leads me to another friend.

    Kindest regards.
