Ashley Dupre is ready for redemption! It's been a year and a half since she became the girl who took down luv gov Eliot Spitzer, and now she tells the Post she's looking forward to love, marriage, and becoming a baby mama. But let's face it: the girl hasn't always been so lucky with men. (In fairness to her, meeting an upstanding guy when you're in the escort business has got to be tough.) But since she's starting over with a clean slate these days, we thought she should start off with a fresh start romantically, too. Herewith, a list of potential suitors for the escort-turned-budding-singer.
Why he'd be perfect: Ashley made her first-ever appearance at the designer's Fashion Week show last February. And while Azrouel said he didn't plan to have her back in the front row this time around, clearly Azrouel likes his marginally skilled brunettes. (See also: Katie Lee Joel.) Plus, with his fashion connections he could potentially help her get that Lucite hooker heels fix.
Why he'd be perfect: The hip-hop mogul has already forged a spiritual bond with Dupre, so it's clear they share a love of, ahem, downward dogs. As Ashley, herself, pointed out a few months ago: "Russell was there, reaching out to give me hand placement tips and educate me about the virtues of yoga..."
Why he'd be perfect: The oldest Jo Bro (Kevin) may be engaged, but 20-year-old Joe is on the market and more age-appropriate than youngest sibling Nick. Two major selling points: 1) Joe's a fellow New Jersey native; and 2) his squeaky-clean image could do wonders for Ashley's PR campaign.
Why he'd be perfect: Pamela Anderson's on-again-off-again man isn't shy about his love of tatas... and tats. (He's inked the majority of his body.) Ashley shares a fondness for tattoos—she's got nine, but there's still plenty of room left for an "I heart Tommy," no?
Why he'd be perfect: Ashley met the Two and a Half Men star in 2006 when she was sent to him dressed as a cheerleader for a night of role-playing, according to news reports. Sure, he's been married to Brooke Mueller since May 2008, but the guy can't be expected to forego the escorts forever, can he?
Why he'd be perfect: After breaking up with the Girls Next Door, Hef's a couple women down. Also, Ashley recently said she isn't against posing nude ("If it's good enough for Madonna, it's good enough for me," she told the Post), so it's only a matter of time before she ends up in the pages of Playboy.
