Spitzer Hooker Says Yoga Saved Her Life

|

As if we needed further proof that yoga is awesome: Ashley Dupre, the woman made famous for “servicing” ex-Governor Eliot Spitzer as an escort, is crediting the ancient practice with saving her life. “Yoga has really helped me turn it into a huge learning experience,” revealed the ex-hooker. “I’m working hard to take what I went through and turn it into something positive. Yoga helps me focus.”

An added bonus of her new addiction? A blooming BFF-ship with a famous fellow yogi. “Russell Simmons and I have been going to the same class, and he’s just an amazing and wonderful person and spirit,” Dupre says of the rap mogul and vegan. “He’s become a mentor, and has helped me work through my issues. I feel liberated and honored that people like him support me. I’m starting to feel respected for who I am.”

If you’re hungry to support Dupre too, you’ll soon get your chance – her “pop rock” album is set to drop in January 2010.  [NYP. Photo: Splash News Online]
