New York Post love and sex columnist Ashley Dupre is opening a lingerie boutique in Red Bank. 

RedBankGreen broke the story.

Femmebyashley is opening on Broad Street in May.

Dupre gained notoriety as a result of her involvement in the scandal that forced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer from office. 

Ashley was made infamous, not famous, by the Elliot Spitzer scandal.  It is nothing she hoped for and nothing she takes pride in.  She is, however, very proud of the person she has become since that scandal.  Closing the door on that chapter of her life with great integrity, Ashley has moved on to be a positive force for people of all ages by taking her experiences and using them to help others lead better, more productive, fulfilling, positive lives.

Based on a recent column, it would seem Dupre certainly believes in her product:

My boyfriend has a huge lingerie fetish. He loves me in anything with lace, and especially anything sheer. But sometimes I worry that he’s more interested in my Victoria’s Secrets than my actual secret spot. How can I tell if the fetish has gone too far?

Trina, 25, Far Rockaway

Loving lingerie is just fine. This is what’s wrong with women today: You start a relationship wearing sexy lingerie for your man, and then after a little bit, once you get comfortable, you just don’t feel like doing it anymore. Come on, it’s lingerie! A pretty harmless “fetish”— if it can even be classified as one— if you ask me. You should feel sexy and confident that he loves looking at you in it. It’s not like he’s going out with some woman behind your back to satisfy his urges. Personally, I think there is nothing sexier than a woman with a sick pair of high heels accompanied by beautiful pieces of lingerie. Not only is it hot for your man to look at, seeing yourself look so sensuous can be a major turn-on for you as well.

The only potential issue is if you have some body issues, which every woman has from time to time, regardless of how attractive she is. Maybe the real problem here is you and not him. I know when I gain a few pounds I feel like jumping into my cotton pajamas rather than slipping on a silk nightie. When that happens, you have to step back and get yourself back on the right page. Focus on yourself and take care of your body. Go to the gym for an hour, five days a week, and get back to what makes you feel secure and sexy in your own skin. At the end of the day, it’s up to you to be the person your husband or boyfriend fell in love with. Otherwise, it’s just false advertising.

Good luck, Ashley.  With all the free advertising you’ve received, the store should have a great start.

    How much of a discount is she giving you Art for the publicity????

    Is that a trick question?

    I suspect “trick” might not be an appropriate word in this specific article. LOL

    Another sign of how sick and demented our society has become. The john now has a lucrative career as a TV commentator (and will probably eventually run for office again and the prostitute is a celebrity giving out advice.
    How special.

    PS: I doubt Art is getting a discount on lingerie. He would look horrible in that stuff.

    Unfortunately some men are just not cut out for drag.  Nothing personal Art, but you fall into that category.  There’s something about you that wouldn’t translate well in drag.

    Likewise, Mitt Romney would not do well in drag.  Rick Santorum on the other hand, would.  Newt Gingrich could never pull off a successful drag look (he lacks that extra something) but Ron Paul would make a stellar drag queen!!  Now, who wouldn’t want to see that?  

    Barack Obama would translate as “simply fabulous” in drag.  Sadly, Joe Biden would not.  

    Corzine “yes”,  Christie “no”, and McGreevey’s “been-there-done-that”.  I think we all can see Frank Pallone in something frilly (that goes without saying), and although Anna Little could not do drag, her side-kick Larry could.  If John Curly did drag he’d look too much like Lillian Burry, so he gets a “no”.   Bob Walsh gets an “honorable mention” for the Elf outfit (it had flair), but I still don’t want to see him in drag.  

    I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point.

    You mean…that Anna Little is NOT in drag? Wow.
