She was at the center of the sex scandal that brought down former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Now the entire world will soon get to see, well all of former call girl Ashley Dupre.
The former escort will be gracing the cover of Playboy's May issue. Inside the issue, Dupre will be featured in an eight-page nude pictorial.
She talks about her former life as an eccort, "You have to be emotionally disconnected…That line of work looks to be the easy way out, but it’s not, because you’re sacrificing your brain and your identity. It’s emotionally damaging.”
She also talks about Governor Spitzer, saying “some people call me the girl who brought down the governor of New York, but in reality he brought me down.”
“I saw the hurt in his wife’s eyes. I felt as if I had jumped off a building. I couldn’t breathe. I was dead,” Dupre told Playboy about the Governor's wife.
- On her first experience being paid for sex: “I was at a club one night, and a rich older guy said to me, ‘I’ll give you a thousand dollars if you come home with me.’ I was like, Wow, a thousand dollars sounds good. But I was scared. Really scared. Is he going to pay me? Is he going to beat me up? ... I made $1,000, and it was no different from sleeping with someone while I was high. Looking back on it, I realize I didn’t have any self-respect.”
- On sex: “I love sex and I’m very good at it, but I’m saving that. That’s for my future boyfriend from now on. And it will be fabulous.”
- On the Tiger Woods scandal: “I feel bad for his family. These girls are coming out, and they’re asking to be brought into it.”
- On posing for Playboy: “I had a lot of fun doing these pictures. You’re naked and you’re in front of a bunch of guys – good-looking guys, too, manly men. But they’re so focused they make you feel really comfortable.”
It's been two years since the scandal first broke and since then a lot has happened to Dupre.
The former call-girl turned playmate is now featured in The New York Post as an advice columnist and continues to work on her music career.
