A couple of days ago, things seemed to be looking up for Kristen: “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis had offered Ashley Alexandra Dupre one million dollars to appear in a Girls Gone Wild magazine spread and tour video–no sex or nudity required! But Francis rescinded the offer yesterday when Girls Gone Wild staff discovered that Dupre had already stripped for a Girls Gone Wild tape–or seven.

“It’ll save me a million bucks,” Francis told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “It’s kind of like finding a winning lottery ticket in the cushions of your couch.”

Are there no true Cinderella stories? These have to be the saddest two sentences I’ve read in recent memory:

According to a “Girls Gone Wild” press release, Dupre visited Miami in 2003 to celebrate her 18th birthday. After fighting with a friend and getting thrown out of her hotel, Dupre found a nearby “Girls Gone Wild” bus, the company said.

AP’s got the (censored) video.
