Ashley Dupre offered $2 million deal that includes reality show


By Christopher Rocchio, 07/28/2008 

Ashley Dupre may be moving closer to a reality television role, however the focus of any potential project has apparently shifted.

The 23-year-old call girl who was at the center of the Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal earlier this year has been approached about a new $2 million deal from Los Angeles-based reality television producer David Krieff, The New York Post reported Sunday.

While Dupre had previously been in talks to be "the next Tila Tequila" for a new MTV reality dating series, Krieff said that isn't the direction his potential client wants to go in.

"[The MTV approach was] not what Ashley's people want for her," he told The Post. "They want something that shows the positive things in her life, that maybe cleans up her image."

Instead the series would reportedly focus on Dupre's family life and career goals, which vary from journalism to lounge singing.

"She also has a strong desire to give to a charity," Krieff told The Post. "She's very analytical. She wants to help people. She sees herself as a kind of Dr. Phil."

Krieff said he approached Dupre two weeks ago after receiving a letter of commitment from an entertainment network and a major studio interested in the infamous call girl, according to The Post

Since then, Krieff told The Post he has been in discussions with Dupre's lawyers and publicists about a potential deal that could carry more weight than just a reality series.

"It's a seven-figure deal," Krieff told The Post.  "There could be a book. It's an overall exclusive-rights deal. As far as I know, it's the only deal she's considering." 

It could also include a two-hour interview with Dupre in which she would discuss the February scandal involving Spitzer, which led to his resignation as governor of New York.

The deal could be signed within the next two weeks, according to The Post

Krieff's reality resume isn't exactly glowing, as he has previously brought together Amy Fisher and the Buttafuocos for a television special and also produced a similar special reuniting Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding.
