Hi kids...
Well, Eliot Spitzer has resigned, and the pretty young thing he hired is probably on her way to some fortune, to go along with her unintended "celebrity".
I say unintended, because I feel certain this is NOT the way she'd like to be remembered. She worried we'd see her as a "monster", when I think none of us feel that way. She's not a monster, but a young, damaged(hurt, insecure) girl with few resources...
In decades past, to be CELEBRATED, you had to have ACHIEVED something. Nowadays, you are a bona-fide celebrity if you come from a wealthy family,and have a sex-tape that suddenly becomes public(see also:Paris Hilton), and/or you've dated a famous person(see also anyone seen with George Clooney, Charlie Sheen, Colin Farrell, etc., etc..), and/or you've been a prostitute/madam(see Heidi Fleiss, etc..) to the wealthy and/or famous(see Charlie Sheen again). I hope Ms. Dupre' manages to get some of her music out there, and makes a go of her real career aspirations....
And I think we should not judge her being a call girl(her tiny studio, in New York City's very ritzy Chelsea apartment building, runs $3500.00 A MONTH--just to open the door to it!).Her boyfriend had just broken up with her, and abandoned her, with the rent owed.And, as we've all heard via the media , she's abused drugs, been from a broken home, etc...So who knows? Maybe Ms. Dupre'(who is quite gorgeous, and according to her friends "has a big heart") can turn this around.

I feel sorry for them both, as well as this sad, hollow world that confuses crime and recreational sex as just cause to celebrate anything.

Hi RR, welcome to my blog!
I think the loneliness in this world(no matter who one is, one feels lonesome) is what keeps prostitutes in business. Our society does tend to celebrate sexual fame, seemingly above all else. Which, when we view real accomplishment(becoming a great writer, assisting those in need, working to provide for others, etc..), does indeed seem sad...
Come visit again!
Peace,
