(Newser) – Fame (or infamy) is beginning to pay off for Eliot Spitzer "escort" Kristen: the aspiring R&B star has now scored $200,000 from downloads of her song—which the New York Post helpfully calculates is worth over four dozen Spitzer hookups. Meanwhile, men's mag Hustler has offered Ashley Alexandra Dupre $1 million for a nude photo shoot, and Penthouse is in pursuit.

A pornographic film company has also put $1 million on the table. “She's probably got the most popular butt in America right now,” said a rep for Georgi Vodka, which has offered her "six figures" to be an ad model. Overall she could make $2.5 to $5 million from her notoriety, say experts, but she’s got to do it fast, noted one. "She'll need to manage it well because it's got to last her a long time."
