Ashley Dupre: Stop Apologizing!

Guest blogger Gina: Yesterday's news of Elliot Spitzer's prostitute's interview spread faster than a venereal disease. Dupre apologized to Elliot's wife, Silda Spitzer. Today there are rumors that the Spitzers' marriage is suffering because of that interview. Wait. That's why they are having problems?

Apparently the Spitzers "were rocked" after reading about Dupre's apology which comes out in tomorrow's People magazine. The NY Post reported that yesterday was "a bad day for (The Spitzers)" -- implying that this interview is causing problems in their marriage. Yeah. That's the problem.

What does Ashlee Dupre really have to do with their marriage -- I mean REALLY have to do with it? I get it. She was the mistress, but she was a paid mistress. It's not like she courted him for months knowing he had a wife. She may as well have been a blow up doll -- one who has to pay rent. It's not like Ashlee Dupre and Silda Switzer were friends. Dupre didn't even know who he was! I don't think an apology is in order.

I'm not saying Dupre should be out of the news. I agree that she is a big part of the story. I couldn't wait to see the first photos of her and I still click to enlarge that stupid MySpace picture in every article I read. I, like most, wondered what kind of girl would be a prostitute? However, I never once thought that she owed Spitzer's wife anything -- not even an explanation. He's the one who lied and cheated!

I am excited to see Diane Sawyer's interview with Dupre on "20/20" this Friday. I think that over time we'll realize that this was simply a case of a young girl trying to make a buck who just happened to be put in a situation with a really stupid and clearly unfaithful jerk. It's Elliot Spitzer who should be apologizing to Dupre.

i agree that she didn’t OWE an apology to her, but i don’t think that she was apologizing for sleeping with her husband…..ashley didn’t know who he was or anything. i think she was saying sorry becasue her husband it a jerk and she felt bad that she was so hurt by the things that had happened.

I don’t know why we still care about her… she is loving the free publicity- music career, interviews, tv appearances… how many other young girls will turn to being a prostitute since its such a glamorous life.

You clearly havent done your research. Did you read Ashley dupree’s People interview. She doesn’t talk about how good it was to be in the spotlight. She wants to be a singer and a author someday. she survived a life of abuse, and she never wants to be involved with prostitution ever again.

I don’t see how anything she does will hurt their marriage. Spitzer hurt their marriage by cheating. But I do think Dupre should be sorry for what she did to Silda Spitzer and the wives of every guy she slept with.
