When it comes to the sex, she said, "You had to be emotionally disconnected -- like from your heart to your head."
Last December, after being left by a boyfriend, she said she felt she had one choice: to start working as an escort again, in a kind of depression and defeat.
Dupré wrote in her journal, "Today was my first night back at the agency. It was really difficult for me. I don't remember it being this hard. It used to be easy for me. I never really thought about what it was I was doing."
That's how she came to be the girl at the escort service when a powerful but anonymous client called in. It was four weeks after she returned to work when she traveled to Washington.
Court documents show that Dupré and Spitzer may have had previous encounters. That final night, Spitzer spent three hours with her at $1,000 an hour. He gave her $4,300. Apparently, the excess was credit for future appointments. In the end, it would be the money trail that brought him down.
Dupré said she has nothing to say to the former governor, but if she had the chance, she would tell his wife Silda Spitzer that "I'm sorry for your pain."
Since news of the scandal broke, she's reportedly turned down offers for book deals, a reality TV show and $1 million to pose in Hustler magazine, and maintains surprisingly normal hopes and dreams for her future.
"I don't know about the white picket fence," Dupré said.
"I want someone that will love me," she said, "someone that will think that all my imperfections make me perfect -- someone, when I fall, they'll be right there, telling me to get back up, it's going to be OK. I want a best friend."
