'Girls Gone Wild' founder says Spitzer call girl was in video archives

By  | 

Los Angeles (AP) The video company's founder says it turns out the call girl linked to former New York governor Eliot Spitzer had already shed her clothes for “girls gone wild” as an 18-year-old while partying in Miami.

Joe Francis had reached out to Ashley Alexandra Dupre, now 22, with an offer of one million dollars to appear in a non-nude spread for his company's new magazine, plus a chance to join the “Girls Gone Wild” tour bus.

But francis says someone had a revelation at yesterday morning's staff meeting: did anyone think to check the archives?

They did, and there she was.

Francis says he just saved himself a million and calls it “kind of like finding a winning lottery ticket in the cushions of your couch.”

Francis says his offer is off the table.
