7/25/2008 7:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The married father of two who was spotted shame-walking out of an NYC hotel with the world's most famous hooker says Ashley Dupre set him up.

And get this: TJ Earle, according to the New York Post, says his wife actually believes his story. (Gullible, party of one?) TJ claims that Ashley was "flirting" with him at a restaurant, and then they just happened to end up in the same hotel room ... overnight. A hotel room, the Post adds, where Earle and his wife had spent their anniversaries.

"I think [Dupre's] getting off on being a homewrecker," says a source.
