New York, Mar.14 : The call girl responsible for the exit of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is reportedly on her way to becoming a millionaire from the sex scandal.
Ashley Alexandra Dupre sex romp with Eliot Spitzer netted her a couple of thousands of dollars, but if a Daily News report is to be believed, she stands to make millions from the scandal.
Penthouse wants her on the cover, every news organization in the world wants an interview and her music is getting downloaded at rates she never could have imagined.
Not bad for a 22-year-old runaway from New Jersey.
Dupre, known as call-girl "Kristen" in legal documents, is a key player in the Spitzer fiasco. That makes her as appealing to producers and publications as Spitzer or his wife, Silda.
"We've been looking at that very closely. She's young. She's pretty. She's a model; we'd love to do business with her. We will approach her," Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt said.
Penthouse Magazine group president and publisher Diane Silberstein said she would "love to have her in the magazine" and would consider offering her a cover shot.
"She sounds like a very interesting and talented young woman, and I'm sure she has a great story to tell," Silberstein said. "We promise to make it worth her while."
TV programs are in the hunt, too.
"Every tabloid in the world will go after her and spend millions of dollars," Silverstein said, noting his show follows NBC News guidelines and doesn't pay for interviews.
"We are interested in having her on the program - as is every other morning program and media outlet - it's a major news story," said a spokeswoman for ABC's "Good Morning America."
Dupre's aspiring music career is getting a boost, too.
Her song "What We Want" was played on national radio yesterday.
"It's not a bad song," said Tom Poleman, senior vice president for programming at Z100. "Looks like she may have a new career, this time in music."
Back in November, Dupre put that song on AmieStreet.com, a Web site portal that allows musicians to upload their songs. Listeners boost the price of the song based on its popularity.
The song was free before the scandal broke, but now it's soared to 98 cents a download. Artists make 70 percent of sales, said the site's co-founder Joshua Boltuch.
It's unclear how many people have bought her song, but nearly 200,000 people have tuned in.
Late Wednesday, Dupre uploaded a second song, "Move Ya Body." It's also priced at 98 cents per download.
Flynt said that by the time Dupre starts talking, she may be too big a media phenomenon for a simple magazine spread.
"She is no doubt going to do a book. There will probably be a movie," he said. "I think she is going to have so many offers coming in that it will probably be wishful thinking just to get in the door."
