"Kristen", Eliot Spitzer's a.k.a. "Client 9's" call girl date in Room 871 of the Mayflower Hotel, has been identified as Ashley Alexandra Dupré, a 22-year-old aspiring singer living in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. Scroll down for the picture gallery.
Dupré has also been know as Ashley R. Youmans, which she changed legally to Ashley Rae Maika DiPietro in 2006. If that sounds confusing, and a little Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, it is, because she has 4 names - if you count "Kristen."
"I know what my purpose is."
The FBI affidavit shows that "Kristen," a.k.a. Ashley Alexandra Dupré, charged $1000 an hour for her time with Spitzer. The "high-end" call girls of the Emperor's Club VIP were ranked from 3 diamonds at $1000 an hour up to $3100 for a 7 diamond model, indicating that she was on the lower end of the scale. We can only imagine the qualifications for a 7 diamond model.
Records show that "Kristen" may have simply been trying to make some rent money when she inadvertently bumped into Governor Eliot Spitzer. She is currently living at the Chelsea Landmark (55 West 25th Street), a luxury skyscraper where rents start at $3500 a month. If her now ex-boyfriend hadn't been paying for the rent, she would have needed more than a few Starbucks jobs to cover it! Fortunately, her one night stand with Spitzer netted $4300, more than enough for rent money.
Paris Hilton Wannabe?
The slogan on Ashley's MySpace Music page says it all, "what destroys me, strengthens me." As a formerly unknown artist, Ashley has really turned adversity into opportunity. In just a few days, she has gotten over 2 million MySpace profile views, and her Myspace profile features a song called "What We Want", which has been played over a million times. Now, fans actually seem to care that her favorite artists are Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Alicia Keys, and Aerosmith among others. She describes her music and herself:
I am all about my music, and my music is all about me… It flows from what I’ve been through, what I’ve seen and how I feel.
She also writes about her odyssey leaving a broken home at 17, being alone, doing drugs, and deciding on a career in music in New York.
Is this enough drama and publicity to pull a Paris Hilton?
Positive Energy Attracts Positive Energy?
Asheley's first MySpace blog entry on the "Law of Attraction", which has received almost 1000 comments, talks about her views on relationships. She lists four relationship criteria:
*Does that person make you feel good?
*Does that person drive you to be better?
*Is that person right there behind you when things arent that good, or even if they are??
*Will that person be an asset to your life...(will that person have value): doesn’t have to be financial, i am talking respect, courage, and umm RESPECT.
This was posted in August 2007. Did she change her mind and become a call girl?
What's next for "Kristen"?
Now that her main(?) source of income has decisively dried up, Ashley's deciding whether to work in a friend's restaurant or move back in with her family in New Jersey since her boyfriend moved out after she discovered he had two kids.
"Kristen" will also be testifying against the four defendants in the Emperor's Club VIP case.

It's telling that "Kristen" hasn't removed any of her MySpace pictures from her profile. More telling evidence she may be trying to take the Paris Hilton route to stardom.
