ABC Lands First Interview With Spitzer Hooker?Is everybody ready for some sweet prostitute interviewing? A tipster tells us "100% reliably" that Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the famous Eliot Spitzer hooker, sat down for her first-ever prime time interview yesterday. Our source says that Diane Sawyer filmed the interview for ABC at a midtown studio, in secret, and that the network is planning to air it next Friday. The network hasn't announced it yet, so you heard it here first, assuming it happens. The other, less solid part of this rumor involves how Ashley got paid for her time: Our tipster is somewhat less sure of this part, but has also heard:
[That] dupre was paid a large "consulting fee" and for "archival footage" — the standard way interview subjects are paid by the networks. (how outrageous, to pay a hooker that much money and only get an interview!)
This would be standard, of course, because none of the news networks "pay" for interviews. Just for services rendered, so to speak, haha. If you have any more info on the Dupre interview, email us.
