Ashley Dupre -- No Mo' Joe

7/3/2008 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ashley Dupre, Joe FrancisAshley Dupré -- aka Gov. Spitzer's fav girl -- has finally come to her senses.

The former call girl has dropped her lawsuit against Girls Gone Wild main man Joe Francis. She filed the suit back in April, claiming GGW used her name and likeness for profit. Dupre had claimed she was tricked into giving her consent for a GGW video -- but Joe long-claimed he had video evidence to the contrary.

Joe tells TMZ, "The filing of the lawsuit was a serious lapse of judgment on her part. I never did understand how I could possibly damage the reputation of a hooker ... This isn't the first time I've faced false allegations against me. But the truth invariably comes out, as I knew it would in this case. I am happy to, once again, be completely vindicated."

Her lawyer issued a statement, that said in part, "Ms. Dupré wants to eliminate all negativity from her life and focus on the positive. She has prospects for many exciting new projects and is looking forward to starting a new chapter."

Presumably one that doesn't involve selling herself.

I'd bang the hell outta this wanna be hosebag...I definitely don't feel an ounce of pity for her b/c I believe that her every action is/was premeditated, incl. this thing with Joe Francis and that she was definitely NOT taken advantage of or coerced or any other such sob story...She's just another semi-hott gurl(on a GOOD day for her) chasing that almighty $$$ b/c in her warped reality she somehow feels that she deserves it...WHATEVER...

She's basically just another form of a porn star & clown on them as we all may do, I also realize that they're still physically desirable women who just are sexually more liberal(or at least more open about their exploits publicly anyway)...SLUTTY, YEAH, but don't get it too twisted, there will ALWAYS be lots of men sniffing after them(and a lot of them men of great means too, not just horny dudes w/no dough either...

blah, both Joe and that Dupre girl are trash. When will people in this country stop giving any credibility to people who are disgusting and completely immoral. Now I'm no prude, but we are talking about a hooker who is trying to profit off of an embarrassing scandal and a guy who takes advantage of dumb young girls who want fame. It's pathetic.

"How could you possibly damage the reputation of a hooker?" Ther real question should be " How could you damage all those souls?"

The most exciting thing for either of them to do, as far as I'm concerned- is to disappear! Ahh- the nirvana!......

Ashley Dupre` & her lawyers were actually in "negotiations" with Joe Francis & his lawyers just before her $10 million lawsuit was filed.

The "negotiations" were regarding the video Joe Francis found of Ashley Dupre` in his Girls Gone Wild video archive & wanted to release it, but she was underage & therefore needed to give permission.

Joe Francis offered Ashley Dupre` $1 million, but she wanted more money & with less video-footage shown.

While Ashley Dupre` was trying to "low-ball" Joe Francis out of more than a million dollars..... Joe Francis' employees found another Girls Gone Wild videotape in the GGW-archive, except this time Ashley Dupre` was over 18y/o which allowed Joe Francis to release it.

Needless to say, Joe Francis withdrew his $1 million offer !!

Serves Ashley Dupre` right..... her greed lost her a $1 million paycheck.
