Ashley Dupre will appear on "20/20" in an interview this Friday. The woman made famous by her connection to former Governor Eliot Spitzer is now ready to talk about her experience, not only with a television appearance, but also with "People" magazine. The interview with Diane Sawyer comes only a week after prosecutors declined to charge Spitzer with any crimes.
The 20/20 exclusive with Ashley Dupre will explain:
what life as a high-end escort is like, how an upper middle-class, girl next door got into the profession and the psychological journey she continues to experience.
Asked whether she would go back to escorting, Ashley Dupre, who has undergone months of counseling since the revelation of her career, said, "Never again." She also feels no guilt for the former New York governor's downfall: "If it wasn't me, it would have been someone else. I was doing my job. I don't feel that I brought him down." As for her future, her focus is on her "music" not on reality shows or posing for magazines despite the many offers.
