Burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese has vowed never to quit her raunchy stage act for a man - insisting she would choose her career over a relationship.
The sultry striptease artist split from rocker husband Marilyn Manson in 2006 after two years together and is now back on the dating scene.
And Von Teese admits previous lovers have let her down because they wanted her to sacrifice her job.
She says, "To begin with, they all say how great (my career) is. But when it comes down to it, they want their careers to be more important than mine. I've had many a man ask me to quit so I can support him and be there for him all the time."
