Jessica Cutler: From "Washingtonienne" scandal to new mom

Five years ago, Jessica Cutler's anonymous Washingtonienne blog was the hottest thing in town. Make that hotttt! So hotttt! -- spicy details of the Hill staffer's active and varied sex life -- that she lost her job, won a book deal, posed for Playboy and got sued by an ex-boyfriend.

She's now blogging under her own name ("Nobody Cares About Jessica Cutler Anymore"), but just barely -- four terse posts in two months -- and you have to read between the lines to figure out why: The former party girl is now a mom.

Last December, Cutler, 31, married N.Y.C. lawyer Charles Rubio, 29, in a quiet Manhattan City Hall ceremony. "I'm not pregnant!" she volunteered at the time. (Swear we didn't ask.) But, you know, famous last words: On Aug. 22, she told us, they welcomed their first child, Jessica-Louise.

"She's too young to be in a gossip column!" Cutler wrote to us when we e-mailed to ask. "She can wait until she grows up and writes a sex blog of her own, or whatever it is kids will be doing in the future. Blogging is already passe, so I can't imagine." Otherwise, she reported, the baby is smiling a lot, and sleeping through the night.

In other news: The four-year legal battle with ex Robert Steinbuch -- who sued her for revealing boudoir details, albeit with no names -- appears to be wrapping up, after the two resolved his claim that was holding up her bankruptcy proceedings, according to court files. (It's been a rough couple of years.)

An HBO pilot based on her book and produced by Sarah Jessica Parker is still in the works, though it's been pushed back until 2011.

As for her writing, Cutler recently explained on her site why she's not embracing "mommy blogging": "It's not that I'm such the busy mother that I can't find the time to write. ... There just isn't much to say other than 'I'm so happy' and 'I love my baby,' which is just so gross. Oh, to be a drugged-out ho bag with a [messed]-up life to write about again! Maybe someday."
