NEW YORK A suburban New York mother who pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution says she plans to write a tell-all book naming names.

Anna Gristina told the Daily News following a brief court appearance Wednesday that football fans particularly will be interested in the book.

CBS New York reports that although the the so-called "Upper East Side madam" declined to elaborate to the Daily News, the New York Post got Gristina to tease some details about her upcoming appearance on the "Dr. Phil" show.

"Everyone's going to have to watch Dr. Phil," Gristina said. "I will tell you that one of the names is high-level (NFL) management. Then there's an older player who's still very well known."

Gristina was released last month after being sentenced to time served. She's on five years of probation. She pleaded guilty to a single count of promoting prostitution.

Prosecutors had accused her of having a roster of wealthy, well-placed clients and boasting of law-enforcement connections during 15 years in a business that made her millions. After an investigation, they said it became clear she was simply running a brothel and profiting from it. She said she was merely starting a dating service.
