So her hair might have caught on fire Michael Jackson-style, when it came in contact with a candle on set—but Ashley Dupre hardly looks singed on the cover of May’s Playboy. (Which will, uh, not feature Kate Gosselin.) “I had a lot of fun doing these pictures,” said Ashley. “You’re naked and you’re in front of a bunch of guys—good-looking guys, too, manly men.”
But though she likes getting naked in front of dudes, Dupre says she is no longer doing it for money.

Poor, poor Ashley Dupre. The girl just can’t get a break! First, she slept with a governor and everyone found about it. Now, she scores the opportunity to pose naked for Playboy, and she nearly catches on fire! Apparently, the soon-to-be May cover model was lolling around in the nude while being shot by Playboy photog Stephen Wayda. Sprawled on the floor and surrounded by candles, her majorly hairsprayed hair caught on fire! Thankfully, smoking Dupre was put out by her helpful hairstylist who rushed to her side, and the nude pictorial was saved. That. Was. Close. [People] Keep reading »
“Look, this is an industry that perpetuates the concept of whoredom. I mean, you take some 16-year-old laying on the floor in chains like she’s been gang-banged by a bunch of Russian businessmen—that’s called an ad campaign. But when it happens in real life, we freak out. I mean, ‘Oh my God, a woman had sex for money!’ What about every [trophy wife] that goes to Bergdorf?”

Ashley Dupre deserves some credit for turning her notoriety as Eliot Spitzer’s favorite lady of the night into a full-scale career. First, there was her pop song “What We Want,” which blogs hailed as “not half bad.” Then came her reality TV show deal, and her turn as a model at NY Fashion Week. Now, Ashley is showing off her writing chops. The New York Post has given her a weekly column called “Ask Ashley,” which reminds us of the genius advice column with Spencer Pratt that appeared in Radar for the few issues before it folded. Not only did Ashley rock glasses and a button-down shirt in her author photo—no more bikinis for this classy girl. But, uh, Ashley’s advice is actually shockingly astute. Read the excerpts after the jump. Keep reading »
“Here you have all these girls accepting gifts, money, trips from Tiger in exchange for sex — all the while knowing he is married. … And now they all can’t wait to tell their stories in exchange for even more money from the tabloids? … And I was the hooker? At least I kept my mouth shut.”

Eliot Spitzer’s favorite former call girl, Ashley Dupre, has traded in her hooker boots for high fashion. The curvaceous brunette strutted the runway in Bahar Shahpar’s eco-friendly show during New York Fashion Week on Tuesday. While Dupre’s edgy new look was certainly different from her usual f**ks-bald-politicians-for-money vibe, Ecouterre.com was able to identify her based on her forearm tattoos. Personally, I think Dupre’s presence at Fashion Week is refreshing! It’s nice to see a model with some tits and ass, not to mention a little scandal. [Ecouterre.com] Keep reading »
Speaking of Ashley Dupre, it looks like there’s a reason the call girl who Eliot Spitzer frequented decided to post a rant about women on her blog 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 William’s “Save the Best for Last.” Take a listen below. [NY Mag]

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… Keep reading »
Supposedly, disgraced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is considering another run for public office, and the mother of the call girl at the center of the scandal that brought down the “Love Gov” is speaking out. In an interview with the New York Post, Ashley Dupre‘s mother, Carolyn Capalbo, opined of Spitzer’s slow-but-steady career resurrection: “Only in America.” Dupre, in contrast, is “having a rough go”; surely, coming back from being outed as a sex worker who brought down a politician is no easy feat. A friend of Dupre pointed out that in this case the woman gets the short end of the stick: “The woman always ends up the filthy, marked whore and he ends up coming back the savior of politics.” Dupre may have gotten paid, but it seems she’s the one paying now.
