Ashley Dupré: "It Wasn't Any Different Than Going on a Date With Someone You Barely Knew and Hooking Up With Them"
Aside from a brief telephone conversation with a NYT reporter, Ashley Alexandra Dupré--the former prosti-hooker from the Eliot Spitzer scandal--has remained tight-lipped about the ordeal. But now (when no one really cares about it anymore) she's finally talking.
Her first interview is in the latest issue of People--which hits newsstands on Friday. And judging from the portion that's currently available online, it's as passé as you might expect.
To wit--Dupré says some prosti patrons like to talk, so they can get to know each other, but with Spitzer, 49, it was "strictly business...more like a transaction." Also, Dupré, 23, says she thinks Spitzer has "been punished enough" and she's sorry for his wife Silda's pain.
The highlight, however, is Dupré's rationale for hooking.
"This wasn't any different than going on a date with someone you barely knew and hooking up with them," she says. "The only difference is I can pay my rent."
Which is all well and pretty skanky and everything, but tell me fellow 20-somethings, would you go out with this guy in the first place?
And that's undoubtedly not the worst of it.
For the full sneak peek visit People.
Additional Note: Diane Sawyer also scored an interview with Dupré, which is expected to take up two parts of 20/20, airing Friday. [NY Daily News]
