Escort at center of Spitzer scandal speaking out again
NEW YORK (AP) -- The prostitute at the center of the scandal that brought down former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer says she didn't realize who he was until the scandal broke.
In an interview with Diane sawyer, Ashley Dupre insists on ABC News' 20/20 that she's not a prostitute, saying that being an escort involves much more than just sex.
She had earlier told People magazine she felt connected to Spitzer's wife, but not to the former governor. She says saw the pain in Spitzer's wife's eyes when the situation became public.
She says she's apologized to Spitzer's wife.
