Ashley Dupre Pens Advice Column

Ashley Dupre

Eliot Spitzer's former call girl hired by New York Post to answer readers' relationship questions.

The fine folks at the New York Post have either lost their minds or the dying newspaper business has forced them to get publicity any way they can. They've given Eliot Spitzer's former call-girl, Ashley Dupre, a sex and love advice column. What? Since when does helping many husbands cheat on their wives make someone an expert on how to keep love alive?

The last advice Ashley dished out was probably to impressionable young girls who read People magazine, when she matter-of-factly explained last month that prostituting herself was no different than "...going on a date with someone you barely know and hooking up with them. The only difference is I can pay my rent." Why Do Men Buy Sex?

According to the Post, Ashley's column offers "no-nonsense" advice but it just seems like nonsense to us. She pretty much just gives stock answers to questions. For instance, she tells a woman who asks how she can tell if her daughter is getting into trouble that "teenagers do stupid things" and that teens are sometimes "attracted to forbidden fruit." And to the woman who asks if there are signs that a man is unhappy in his marriage, she gives such great insights as, "guys are so easy to please" and "your relationship should always be a priority."

Wow. We can't imagine how many relationships will be saved now that Ashley Dupre is on the case! Would You Take Dating Advice From A Celebrity?
