Natalie McLennan is the self-proclaimed high-end hooker whose statements in a 2005 New York magazine cover story helped get her convicted on prostitution-related charges last year. Now that she's done her time, McLennan is free to tell all in a new book. And, what do you know, just like her onetime pimp Jason Itzler, McLennan just happens to have unearthed from her memory some sexy new stories to tell about Ashley Dupre, famed hooker to former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and a former working girl alongside McLennan. The tales were excerpted in the Post Sunday, alongside a racy picture (left). They involve cocaine and the rapper Nas:
Remember Jason Itzler, the barely-repentant former pimp who explained to a stunned Anderson Cooper why some people pay $5,000 an hour for a hooker? Now he's claiming that, as he was taping the Anderson session, he realized that Eliot Spitzer's hooker Ashley Dupre used to work for him! He didn't say anything to Cooper at the time because he wasn't sure, and in fact he told the anchor of Dupre, "she is not a serious fashion model ... I don't know if her boobs are real or not." But when he got home and looked up Dupre's MySpace profile, Itzler realized he was right, and quickly finagled himself an appearance the next day on top-rated CNN show Larry King Live, where all of a sudden he could not say enough nice things about Dupre. Even credulous King looked like he didn't believe the guy, but if it turns out Itzler is lying and Dupre denies everything, he'll end up with a third day of free publicity for his matchmaking service, DNA Diamonds.
