We haven't seen the last of Ashley Dupre just yet. Joe Francis and the "Girls Gone Wild" franchise will feature the call girl that was at the center of the Eliot Spitzer scandal in a sex tape that will now be released. Francis announced on Monday that he will release the provocative video footage of Ashley DuprÃ© taken during Spring Break in 2003.
"She clearly filed her lawsuit just for publicity," Francis said in a press release. "Now that the distraction of this frivolous lawsuit is behind us and I have been vindicated, yet again, we’ve been given the green light to provide her with all the public exposure she could ask for." Hiow much will we see of Ashley Alexandra Dupre?
She shot to pop culture stardom for about fifteen minutes when she linked to former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. She had filed a lawsuit against GGW and Francis but just recently she dropped her $10 million lawsuit after Francis released a video where DuprÃ© appears covered by a terry cloth towel and gives her name as Amber Arpaio. An unseen GGW questioner asks if she is 18 and if the footage can be used on "Girls Gone Wild." She says yes to both questions. Her ID is then filmed.
The suit had alleged that Girls Gone Wild and Joe Francis had ruined DuprÃ© reputation by publicizing the video. Francis released footage proving that DuprÃ© had willingly volunteered to perform for the Girls Gone Wild cameras after providing both a verbal and written release. Because DuprÃ© had offered false identification and lied about her age on camera, the company initially declined to publish the material. The release notes that "Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis to Immediately Release DuprÃ© Sex Video Footage". It should be online at the website soon.
