Ashley Dupre, the call girl entangled in former-Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s sex scandal, lashes out at critics and the media in a new blog post on Global Grind.
Dupre writes that while she’s happy that Spitzer, who will be an adjunct professor at City College in the fall, is seemingly moving on with his life, she has been unable erase the stain of scandal from her own name.
The struggling singer claims not have "made a dime" on the affair, and takes the publishers who had offered her book deals, only to rescind them, to task:
Did this hit too close to home for you because your husband cheated on you with an escort? I will write the book regardless and do it for the right reasons.
From the New York Post:
"Let me say this — most girls, to varying degrees, of course, want to be pampered and have nice shoes, designer handbags and gorgeous clothes," Dupre, 24, writes in a blog post on hip-hop impresario Russell Simmons’ Global Grind Web site. "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 . . . or being short on rent money — and the guys deliver it."
Then takes a poke at all the women who pass judgment on her, but are engaged in "dishonest relationships" of their own. "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," she wrote. "They would rather stay in an unfulfilling or loveless relationship than lose that security."………..
Fred emails: Oh, the shallow, meaningless cynicism of it all…. Give me a girl who pines after true love, preferably with blond hair and big boobs.
Joe emails: What you really need to do is get a blogging relationship going with this Dupre girl. You know deep in your heart that you agree with her. Think of the possibilities, you’d give her blog-respectability (bloggerspectability?) and she’d give you, um, you know. She even kinda-looks-Jewish, so you can take her from the hovel to shul. This would be bigger than Emma, bigger than Leah Kleim (lot less blood, for sure). And perhaps you can even get her to join you at Sex, Spirit, & Shadow: The Three S’s of Dynamic and Personal Evolution with Diane Musho Hamilton, Marc Gafni, and Sofia Diaz. I think this is a big opportunity. Don’t blow it
