LOS ANGELES - Stop that $1 million check: It turns out the call girl linked to Eliot Spitzer had already shed her clothes for "Girls Gone Wild" as an 18-year-old while partying in Miami, the video company's founder said yesterday.
Joe Francis had reached out to Ashley Alexandra Dupre, now 22, with an offer of $1 million to appear in a non-nude spread for his company's new magazine, plus a chance to join the "Girls Gone Wild" tour bus, his company announced yesterday. But Francis said someone had a revelation at yesterday morning's staff meeting: Did anyone think to check the archives?
They did, he said - and there she was.
"It'll save me a million bucks," Francis told the Associated Press later in the day. "It's kind of like finding a winning lottery ticket in the cushions of your couch."
