Earlier this year, Joe Francis offered Ashley Alexandra Dupre $1 million to appear in his soft-porn films  after she was unmasked as Kristen, a hooker frequented by New York Gov. Spitzer, who resigned in disgrace.

Now, in a (Girls Gone) Wild twist, Joe Francis is offering Ashley Dupre $1 million again - this time to drop a $10 million lawsuit against him.

"She should keep in mind, it's considerably more than the Governor of New York paid her, and our activities aren't illegal," Francis told the Daily News, adding that Ashley Dupre has "zero" chance of winning her lawsuit.

"It is incomprehensible that Ms. Dupre could claim she did not give consent to be filmed by Girls Gone Wild, when in fact we have videotape of her giving consent, while showing her identification," Francis said.

Ashley Dupre is a bad, bad girl. Joe Francis ain't much better.

"She's seeking $10 million for topless photos taken in front of a room full of people, including ... multiple crews we had in the room. These images were taken in public places and they contain no sexual contact."

Ashley Dupre has sued the sultan of sleaze for allegedly getting her drunk and "tricking" her into disrobing for the cameras on a 2003 vacation in Florida - then using the footage in a video series without permission.

If you had to pick (extremely dirty, morally bankrupt) sides here, who would you back in this battle: Joe Francis or Ashley Dupre?

Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the New Jersey hooker at the center of the New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer scandal, filed a lawsuit Monday against Girls Gone Wild owner Joe Francis for exploiting her name and image for profit.

The suit seeks more than $10 million in damages.

In legal documents, Ashley Alexandra Dupre claims Girls Gone Wild reps came up to her while she was vacationing in Florida in 2003 and offered her alcohol before inducing her to expose her breasts and sign a waiver.

All while she was underage at just 17. Classy organization.

Since 2003, when this occurred, Girls Gone Wild has illegally exploited the name of Ashley Dupre - or so her lawsuit claims - as well as her picture, voice and likeness in a number of "deceptive advertising campaigns."

Joe Francis - who was willing to pay Ashley Dupre $1 million to pose naked for his videos before realizing, y'know, she already had in 2003 - had no comment.

The multi-millionaire bag of sleaze was just released from a Nevada jail last month, and continues to face federal tax evasion charges in that state.

He is currently fighting separate charges in Florida for allegedly filming underage girls in Panama City. Joe Francis has claimed that the girls in question lied about their age and that he is therefore not liable.

Ashley Dupre, who turns 23 this week, has not appeared publicly since the Eliot Spitzer scandal broke and it was revealed that she exchanges sex for money at a staggeringly high rate - thousands of dollars an hour!

Ashley Dupre, a.k.a. Spitzer Girl, went crazy in Florida for "Girls Gone Wild," as we reported earlier (and as Joe Francis was willing to pay $1M for her to do, before realizing he already had mucho archive footage of her).

That's funny enough, but it gets weirder (and skeevier). Ashley may have been underage when she was filmed naked on the "Girls Gone Wild" bus.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Her lawyer, Don Buchwald, says Ashley Dupre was born April 30, 1985, and the footage was shot between March 13 and March 20, 2003, making her ... 17!

Ashley Alexandra Dupre was a girl gone wild... at age 17.

But "Girls Gone Wild" CEO Joe Francis says even if she was 17, Florida and Federal law permits her to be filmed in any state of undress ... as long as she consents and there is no "sexual contact." Joe says (he would know) there was none.

However, in a statement, Joe Francis says GGW has a "corporate policy" not to use girls under 18, and thus has "delayed the release of [Ashley Dupre] nude footage on the Internet and are investigating the matter."

Somewhere, Eric Stapelman is smiling. Not just because he likes nude photos of hot girls, but because Francis is certainly shadier and more disliked than him.

After skyrocketing to instant notoriety and fame in the Eliot Spitzer sex scandal, America's most famous call girl, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, recently received a $1 million offer to pose and tour with Girls Gone Wild.

Little did GGW magnate Joe Francis know that she'd already gone wild!

Inside the video vaults of Girls Gone Wild is footage of an 18-year-old Ashley Dupre naked and cavorting on the GGW bus and doing scenes with another woman in 2003, the video company announced Tuesday afternoon.

GGW found the footage - seven tapes worth - after CEO Joe Francis offered $1 million to Ashley Alexandra Dupre to appear in one of his videos.

Francis will soon release a special video featuring none other than Ashley Dupre (born Ashley Youmans), now 22, the alleged high-priced call girl linked to the downfall of now-former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

"I met her on spring break at the Girls Gone Wild beach house in 2003," Francis said. "She got into the Jacuzzi. She threw her arms around me. I never made the connection that this was Ashley. But my cameraman had been in touch with her for a while. I didn't make the connection until recently. Then it was like: that's Ashley!"

Francis told the Associated Press: "It'll save me a million bucks. It's kind of like finding a winning lottery ticket in the cushions of your couch."

We don't really want to think about what's happening on Joe Francis' couch, thank you very much. But this is certainly great news for all you people out there dying to get a glimpse of Ashley Dupre nude for less than $4,300/hour.

The seedy Joe Francis' empire, Girls Gone Wild, has made an offer to the most famous prostitute in America, 22-year-old Ashley Alexandra Dupre.

The hooker caught in the middle of the prostitution ring busted by the government that brought down New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has become a smash Internet sensation - and received a $1 million offer from Girls Gone Wild.

Dupre, Ashley

Ashley Dupre would be featured on a photo spread and tour.

"Her face is on the cover of every newspaper in the country," Joe Francis said.

"It's clear that the public wants to see more of [Ashley Dupre]. This is a serious offer and I hope she gets back to me right away."

Francis wants Ashley Dupre (real name Ashley Youmans, or Ashley DiPietro, but known to Spitzer as "Kristen") to share her side of the Spitzer story in print and DVD - though she wouldn't have to pose nude - and tour with Girls Gone Wild.

Joe Francis is onto something for sure - Americans will waste money like nobody's business. The aspiring singer has already made an estimated $200,000 from downloads of her terrible music, the New York Post reported Saturday.

As for the shady and moronic Eliot Spitzer, he resigned in shame. Lt. Governor David Paterson was sworn in as Governor of New York yesterday.

 Right now, Vanessa Hudgens nude pics are simply costing this actress her reputation.

And if she's replaced by Adrienne Bailon in High School Musical 3, the scandal will cost Hudgens millions of dollars, as well.

Ogled At

But Joe Francis reportedly has a way to help with the latter problem: TMZ says that the King of the Boob Flash has offered Hudgens $500,000 to "join the [Girls Gone Wild] brand and lifestyle."

In a press release issued from a Nevada prison, Francis says: "Vanessa Hudgens is the classic girl next door gone wild. Being sexual is not a crime."

Heck, in the case of Amber Lee Ettinger, it's a reason to make a video supporting Barack Obama.

As for the nude pics now circulating the Internet, Franic doesn't seem to mind: "She took a picture," he says, "it was leaked, and now it is time to move forward with her career."

One Joe hopes will involve lots more nudity.

The Girls Gone Wild creator also made an offer for Antonella Barba nude after her sex photos came out. So at least he's consistent.

What happens when attention is waning for celebrity pictures of you and your loser fiance?

If you're Heidi Montag, you try to remain in the spotlight by actually posing for a picture with someone other than Spencer Pratt for once.

The Land of the Free

And perhaps by fighting for an important cause, such as the freedom of Girls Gone Wild creator, Joe Francis.

Seen below, Montag is standing with swimsuit designer Ashley Paige, as the latter launches her Swim and Sports Wear Collections during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Miami. And Paige in sporting a shirt that would make resident Hollywood Gossip writer, Free Britney, proud:

Heidi Montag stands alongside designer Ashley Paige, as the pair gives a shout out to prison dweller Joe Francis.

Free Joe, the shirt cries, as a picture of Francis beckons others to join in the fight. We're certainly inspired. After all, the Free Britney Spears campaign appears to have gone awry. That girl is way too free these days.

Attending the fashion show to watch Montag strut her spoiled stuff was Pratt, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Kim Kardashian, Tyson Beckford, Brandon Davis, DJ Clue, Chudney Ross and latin singer Ana Christina, among many others.

Somewhere, Joe Francis was thankful for the love. And probably dreaming of giant boobs.

Bear in mind, the Girls Gone Wild creator is still in prison. But maybe Paris Hilton can relax; it doesn't have to be so bad.

TMZ has learned that Joe Francis was moved last night from his cell in Bay County Jail - which was making him cry "every day," sources said - to a facility in nearby Jackson County, all under the watchful eye of US Marshals.

Joseph Francis Pic

The federal government, according to sources, is planning to take Francis to Nevada in the next day or so to face tax evasion charges there. So at least Antonella Barba will know where to send that audition tape.

Francis was a no-show in Judge Dee Dee Costello's courtroom this morning, even though he was scheduled to face criminal charges today - of using minors in a sexual performance. An official in the Florida State's Attorney's office tells TMZ that his office has filed a motion with federal judge Richard Smoak to prevent Francis from leaving the state.

So Joe may wish to wipe that smile off this face. His future looks bleaker than that of Kate Bosworth and James Rosseau.

You'd think that seeing Tara Reid nude would prepare you for anything.

Apparently, though, prison is worse for Joe Francis.

Joe Francis, Random Girl

TMZ reports that the guy that offered Antonella Barba a lot of money to sell his product has far more worries at the moment than whether or not she'll accept. He's cell mates with a cop killer that won't stop harassing him.

Day and night, this murderer is reportedly taunting: Girls Gone Wild! Joe Francis! Whoo! Yes, that's the most creative chant he can think of.

But it's enough to cause "full-blown anxiety" attacks in Francis, sources say. Just imagine if inmates rubbed in his face how they'd also seen Kim Kardashian nude via her sex tape. It might be enough to drive Francis to suicide.

Meanwhile, Joe has just pleaded guilty to one count of criminal contempt, and is still facing more than three weeks of hard time in the Florida jail.

Other charges may still be brought, as well. Let's just say the fashion future of Britney Spears looks brighter than anything down the line for Francis.
