* Wednesday, Ashley Alexandra Dupre was complaining to The New York Times that she might have to move back to New Jersey because she couldn't afford her Flatiron apartment. Umm, get this from New York magazine:

But in fact, in the less than 24 hours since that interview took place, Dupre's personal wealth has increased considerably. The two songs on her Amie Street profile, which each cost 98 cents, have been downloaded more than two million times, and Dupre will receive 70 percent of the total profit. Playboy and Penthouse are both interested in setting up photo shoots.

More maddening details over at Daily Intel, which also has word of a great quip from governor-in-waiting David Paterson.
