(Newser) – Another high-powered fella has taken an interest in Ashley Alexander Dupre, but unlike Eliot Spitzer, Donald Trump’s interest in the former call girl is all about TV (well, money, too). People reports that Trump wants Dupre for his new MTV reality show, said to be a sort of "My Fair Lady" competition. “She is an interesting candidate, very interesting," sayeth the Donald.

The as-yet unnamed show is based on Britian's Ladette to Lady, in which 15 hard-partying young women are carted off to boarding school for lessons in ladyhood. Trump has been known to set wild women on the straight and narrow before: In 2006 he sent Miss USA to rehab for a “second chance” to keep her crown.
