Russian spy Anna Chapman has taken over as editor–in–chief of a new business magazine, five months after launching a TV show, giving a new direction to her spying career that saw her deported from the United States last summer.

She said the magazine Venture Business News is aimed at helping Russia's new generation of entrepreneurs.

The 29-year-old became a celebrity in Russia on her return and had TV show and a successful lingerie modeling career. She even attended a space launch and had a sing-a-long with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who was also former chief of Russia's spy agency.

Her one-hour TV show Mysteries of the World with Anna Chapman, was aired on the private Russian channel REN TV in January.

Chapman became one of Russia's most famous spies after the Cold War era when her photographs were splashed across the front pages of tabloid newspapers around the world last year.
