The Donald Wants Ashley Dupré! (For His New Reality Show)
03/29/2008 AT 12:00 AM EDT
The still-untitled show, produced by Donald Trump Productions (and referred to in some press reports as "Lady or a Tramp") was picked up by MTV for eight hour-long episodes. Based on a British show called Ladette to Lady, the show will take a group of 15 hard-partying young women and send them off to a boarding school environment where they’ll learn to become more ladylike.
"She's the perfect candidate," the show insider says of Dupré, the 22-year-old at the center of the Gov. Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal. The show has not yet heard back from Dupré with any reaction to the offer.
Donald Trump could not immediately be reached for comment.
The Donald has had some experience reforming hard-partying young women in the past, of course. He famously sent Miss USA Tara Conner to rehab and gave her a "second chance" to keep her crown in December of 2006. --Mark DagostinoJoel Auerbach/Zuma
