Those of you out there who generally read Playboy for the articles –that’s all of you, right?– will finally have a reason to flip past those boring, boring words when the latest issue hits newsstands later this week. In what is being heralded as the magazine’s most anticipated celebrity pictorial since Marge Simpson shed her lime green dress last October, Ashley Alexandra Dupré (aka “Kristen”) will be appearing nude in an eight-page layout in the May 2010 issue. And just in case any of you out there have doubts that the photo spread will be anything less than hot, it’s worthwhile to note that Dupré literally caught on fire during the shoot.
Oh, and for those of you who actually do read the printed words that appear in the magazine, you’ll have this choice quote from Eliot Spitzer’s main squeeze to look forward to: “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.” Well, alrighty then!
No hooker or prostitution scandal lately? No problem! Just resuscitate an old one! That’s exactly what the New York Post did the other day when they brought that Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal back from the dead by tracking down Ashley Dupre‘s mom Carolyn Capalbo in a bikini on the beach in Jersey to ask her opinion on Eliot’s political return.
“Only in America,” said Carolyn, in between slathering baby oil over her body. Carolyn had a lot more to say about her daughter’s former client. “I really can’t blame him, but at the same time, my daughter’s having a rough go. I can imagine she’s not happy about it.” Then a pal chimed in, “The woman always ends up the filthy, marked whore and he ends up coming back the savior of politics. I feel bad for her. She’s the one who paid the price for it.”
Now of course Ashley is all fired up and took to Russell Simmons‘ blog GlobalGrind.com to throw fire at her haters. “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.” [Photo: Splash News Online]
If your job description once included cracking down on prostitution rings, it’d be rather silly to start patronizing them yourself. Either nobody told that to Eliot Spitzer, crusading attorney general-turned-New York governor, or he’s a few subpoenas short of a brief. Earlier this year, Spitzer was outed as “Client 9″ of the Emperors Club call-girl ring, having spent nearly $80,000 on prostitutes over a decade.
After a chorus of “He did what?”, Spitzer’s wife grimaced in support as her husband resigned to a quiet life of consultancy and plea bargains. The public face of Spitzer’s credit card conquests turned out to be Ashley Dupre, an aspiring singer whose prostitution paid the rent.
Hustler and Penthouse have offered the bosomy 22-year-old considerably more than Spitz’s measly $5000-a-night to pose nude. But the former Girls Gone Wild dancer has allegedly turned down these offers in favor of the real pot at the end of the rainbow — her own reality show. — Charles Bottomley
