Washington, Mar 18 : Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's call girl Ashley Alexandra Dupre was hooked to the high life and had even gone to places that her shapely body could take her, claim her old friends.
Spitzer, who had to resign after charges of being involved in a sex scandal surfaced, had met Dupre in Room 871 of the Mayflower Hotel in Washington.
"She got fake breasts when she was 19 years old," said one of the guys who knew her when she was known as Ashley Youmans.
Recalling that Dupre had liking for guys in Cadillacs and those who had houses at the Shore, he said: "She latched on to us and would hang at our beach house."
"Eventually, though, I had a falling-out with her over her friends. She'd invite these big guido-looking guys, who would come over and start fights with my friends. Once, we had to get five cops to break up a brawl her friends had started," he added.
One of her old friends remembers that Dupre "often sat with the big spenders."
One girlfriend had no idea that the Dupre was turning tricks, but knew "she was sleeping with married men who had children. She tried to be discreet, and wouldn't divulge sexual details until after they had broken up. She thought every relationship was more serious than it was."
In fact, Dupre has acknowledged that one of her married boyfriends was paying for her pad.
Another party friend still remembers Dupre always saying her family was loaded. However, she wouldn't say how or why.
Claiming that Dupre was flashing "mad money" during a drug binge the weekend before the Spitzer scandal was exposed, one of her friends said: "We were doing coke all night."
"Actually, she bought some s- from some dude there, and she pulled out a bunch of 0 bills."
