Now that Eliot Spitzer is back in the headlines for teaching a class at City College and over (largely debunked) rumors that he's planning a political comeback, the prostitute who unwittingly participated in his downfall has taken the opportunity to speak out. Not against Spitzer — she actually says in a recent blog post that she's "happy" for him. "Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone deserves a second chance," she wrote. "Me too, right? Well, apparently not." Dupré claims she's been improperly judged for making money from the scandal. In fact, she has some harsh words for the women of New York:
ladies, ladies, ladies — so many of you have been cool, supportive and loving. But there are those of you out there who just love to judge. 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 at the store down the street or being short on rent money — and the guys deliver it. This is a dishonest relationship. 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. This, too, is a dishonest relationship. I see this type all over the suburbs of New Jersey with the housewives who are strung out on mood stabilizers or the couples who put all their attention on their children so they don't have to deal with their own issues. What about going to those sugar daddy websites? Is that legal? Should it be? Is what I did any more dishonest? Get real and get over yourself.
Dupré also lashes out at publishers who have so far refused to buy her book. Many companies pulled offers, she claims, because execs had "personal and political reasons." "What does that mean? Did this hit too close to home for you because your husband cheated on you with an escort?" she asked. "Or would your wife feel insecure if she heard you were working with me?"
But after all these harsh words, Dupré ended on a soft note: with her new single, "Inside Out." The chorus goes like this: "What if the world you knew got turned upside down? And your every truth got turned into doubt? And your secret heart was no secret now? Would you love me still, like you said you will? From the inside, when it all turns inside out?" Enjoy!
