Nov. 13: Former call-girl Ashley Dupre sits down for interview with Diane Sawyer.
What haunts Ashley Dupre isn't the image of Eliot Spitzer in his black socks — it's the look on his wife's face as he announced he was resigning as governor.
"I try not to revisit that place too often, but when I think about his speech, I think of her face, her eyes, the hurt," the former high-priced hooker told People magazine in an interview that hits newsstands Friday.
If she could say anything to Silda Wall Spitzer, it would be, "I'm sorry for your pain."
As for what happened with the governor inside Washington's Mayflower Hotel on Feb. 13, that was "strictly business," she told People.
Speaking in detail for the first time since the $4,300 tryst that sank Spitzer's once-promising political career, Dupre said she hadn't realized who "Client No. 9" was when she hooked up with him.
Inside Room 817, Spitzer was dressed in casual clothes. There was no security detail in sight and nothing that made her realize she was having a tryst with New York's governor and zealous former state attorney general.
In fact, it wasn't until her mother, Carolyn, told her to flip on the TV to Spitzer announcing his resignation that she realized the man who had paid her for sex was the governor of New York, she tells the magazine.
