Eliot Spitzer’s Escort Tells Other Women To “Get Real”

The gloves are off! Ashley Dupre, the high-priced escort who brought down former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, lashed out at other women in a blog post.

The 24-year-old said women—NYC ladies, especially—are hypocrites who judge her for having been a call girl, but they still date rich men and bleed their boyfriends dry! Dupre’s choicest insults, after the jump…

“Get real and get over yourself…Let me say this—most girls, to varying degrees, of course, want to be pampered and have nice shoes, designer handbags and gorgeous clothes.

I know many women who target guys with money and use them to get these things. They toy with them, flirt, go on dates, have sex and then drop hints about that new dress…or being short on rent money—and the guys deliver it.

I see this all over New York City. Some women aren’t as vindictive, but still dive into relationships with wealthy guys who they don’t love or even find attractive, but they stay in it because they have a nice home, a car and spending money.

They would rather stay in an unfulfilling or loveless relationship than lose that security.”

Well, Ashley Dupre, “most girls” don’t want to be “pampered.” Most of us, I think, like a few gifts here or there but want the self-esteem that comes from taking care of ourselves.

Still, I don’t disagree with her at all about the judgment and hypocrisy “bad girls” like her experience for being sex workers. She gets called a “slut” for sleeping with men for money, yet some women do use sex and affection to manipulate men to get money or gifts out of them, too. The “good girls” and “bad girls” categories are so filled with holes that it’s amazing we still think that way anymore.

Furthermore, society is harder on women than men when it comes to sexual indiscretions like Dupre’s. “Client Number Nine” Eliot Spitzer paid a price for cheating on his wife and being a hypocritical politician (debating about whether or not his punishments were fair is another post entirely). But what about all the men who manipulate women with their money, too? Are they really any better? [NY Post]

Of course, it looks like there’s a reason the call girl decided to post this little rant today, as opposed to last week or a year ago. Remember how she wanted to be a singer? Looks like she’s drumming up press for her new single, “Inside Out.” And, oh goody, it’s a ballad that kind of reminds me of Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last.” Take a listen below. [NY Mag]
