Dominique Strauss-Kahn Allegedly Hired Prostitutes From The Same Madam As Eliot Spitzer

Rich men get their ties from Brooks Brothers, their cars from Maybach, and, apparently, their $1,200-an-hour call girls from madam Kristin Davis. Like his predecessor in public shaming, Eliot Spitzer, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the International Monetary Fund who resigned Wednesday night after he was accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel…

Veiled Muslim Woman Yelled At By Woman Not In Veil, While Eliot Spitzer Moderates

Who would have thought the “Love Guv” would have found himself moderating a feminist debate about the veil? Life sure is strange sometimes.

10 Jobs Eliot Spitzer Would Be Better Suited For Than Hosting A Show On CNN

Yesterday, we addressed the rumor that Eliot Spitzer might replace Campbell Brown on CNN, hosting a “‘Crossfire”-esque debate show.

In proof that there is life after a big ol’ sex scandal, for the past few weeks, rumors have been swirling that a certain former New York governor with a taste for expensive call girls (that’s you, Eliot Spitzer) will be returning to politics and running for New York comptroller in 2010.

Ashley Dupre Trades Streetwalking For Catwalking

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.

Nearly a year after news of Eliot Spitzer’s Hookergate scandal, new sordid details have been revealed.
