With the mistresses of Tiger Woods, Jesse James, and now even Tiki Barber clogging up our tabloids, we’d almost forgotten about America’s Prostie, Ashley Dupré. But like the former governor she schtupped, she will not let us let her go. Dupré’s long-expected Playboy shoot comes out this month, and we got a sneak peek at the issue. Since we read Playboy for the articles, we were more interested in the feature, in which writer Christopher Napolitano describes Dupré as looking like “a toffee treat waiting to be unwrapped and savored,” than in the pictures of Dupré, well, unwrapped. We learned some things!
Here are some of our favorite bits from the interview:
She thinks Eliot Spitzer blew up her spot, not vice versa.
“Some people call me the girl who brought down the Governor of New York, but in reality he brought me down.” Oh, well, honey, we all knew that.
After the Spitzer scandal news broke, she thought of two things: Silda, and her singing career.
“I watched my dreams of a singing career flash before my eyes. 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.”
She thinks Tiger Woods’s mistresses are wrong for snitching.
“I feel bad for his family. These girls are coming out and they’re asking to be brought into it.”
Being a hooker in real life is not as much fun as Pretty Woman.
“No one says, ‘Hey, when I grow up, I want to be an escort.’ 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. [It’s] definitely not like something in the movies.”
Now she’s saving sex for someone she loves.
“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.”
