Before they were “Real Housewives,” these ladies were taking it off for Playboy (or in the case of LuAnn de Lesseps, not taking it off for Playgirl). I would expect nothing less of the Countess. Click through to see your favorite ladies of Reality TV in various states of undress. [Buzzfeed]
“I never chalk up anything to the gender divide and say ‘Well, that’s just a male thing.’ I hate the conventional wisdom that men are supposedly complete pieces of shit and it’s our job as women to put up with them. Men are just as sensitive and easily victimized as women are, but there’s not as much of an infrastructure for expressing it. That drives me nuts. We’re all humans and doing human stuff. We’d have a better world if everyone had someone they could pay for talk therapy.”
– Lena Dunham sat down to answer 20 questions in the latest issue of Playboy and had some insightful things to say about men, feminism, and learning the birds and the bees. God, do I agree with her on this one — if everyone could just have access to a little therapy, even people who think they don’t need it, we’d all be better off, because we’d be addressing our shit instead of taking it out on other people — our friends, our families, the people we date, etc. When I become President, it’ll be free therapy for everyone! Hurrah! Anyway, click on to read some more choice quotes from Dunham’s Playboy interview… Keep reading »
Kate Moss dons an admirable amount of hats: fashion model, Britain’s national treasure, style icon, wife, mum, dog owner, muse… Hell, she’s even dabbled in (adorably awkward) singing on a Babyshambles track. But Playboy cover model? That’s one I did not see coming. NowThis News claims to have gotten its hands on an internal memo from the publication that named Moss as the cover girl of its 60th anniversary issue, which would hit newsstands January of next year. Kate has posed in the nude countless times, but her jobs historically tend to skew artsy avant-garde rather than garish lad’s mag. According to the memo, she’s set to be shot for the editorial by legendary photog team Mert and Marcus, with W‘s Alex White as stylist, this week — and with a team like that, the results are likely to be much different from the magazine’s usual fare.
Though it’s not much more than a rumor right now, it’s certainly feasible, and I bet it would convince a whole new demographic to pick up Playboy on the newsstands for the very first time (duh, ladiez be lovin’ Kate Moss). I know I would — I buy every Kate cover. It’s an expensive habit. Seriously, do you know how many covers this girl gets? [Fashionista]
As of today, the first Hebrew edition of Playboy is available in the Holy Land. American Playboy has been on news stands in Israel for years, but this is the first edition of the magazine featuring Israeli models and articles by Israeli writers. For whoever made the Playgoy joke, I hate to break it to you, but it doesn’t really work. A goy is a non-Jew. And the majority of Israel’s Hebrew-speaking population is Jewish. So WOMP, WOMP. As far as how Israel’s the Muslim population will react to the new edition of the magazine. Not so sure. [Buzzfeed]
“I celebrate nudity every day,” actress Paz de la Huerta tells Playboy in their new issue, in which she makes sweet love to camera in various naturalistic settings. “We did the photos with no makeup, and we both wanted them to have a very natural feeling,” she told the mag of the pictures shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti. “It was more about bringing out a part of myself that has not really been shown to the public, a more honest portrayal of where I am now in my life.”
Playboy collected anecdotes, and tallied and rated colleges to see where the most partying is going on. Their method was to take the top 100 colleges in the US and measure them in the categories of sex, sports and nightlife. I’ve made no secret about the fact that I have no interest in sports and I’m too old for nightlife (I can barely make it up past 1 a.m. anymore). So that leaves sex. Let’s talk about which schools ranked as the best places to get laid. Ahem, my alma mater, NYU, ranks near the top of the heap. Go Violets! Mom and Dad, stop reading now. Keep reading »
One day after her 18th birthday, Courtney Stodden tweeted, “No to porn … yes to Playboy ;) xxx.” Only Playboy’s not making any offers according to TMZ. A “source” says she’s been rejected by the magazine because she’s too “enhanced” for an 18-year-old. I believe they are referring to that time she went on Dr. Drew’s show to prove her breasts were au natural and kind of, sort of, failed the sonogram.
Anyhow, according to Courtney’s Twitter feed, TMZ “got it wrong” and we should “stay tuned ;) xxx.” I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Courtney’s naked body will be gracing an upcoming issue of Playboy. [Celebitchy]
In the meantime, click through to see some other women who were told to “keep it on.”
So, by now most of us know that Kate Middleton has a (very distant) cousin named Katrina Darling who is a burlesque dancer. Ms. Darling just posed on the cover of Playboy and some of the words being used by the media to somberly describe how Ms. Middleton feels about this matter are “embarrassed,” “ashamed,” and “disheartened.”
Remember when Prince Harry dressed as a Nazi for Halloween? “Yes,” (probably some of) you say. But do you? Do we? Because it seemed like after the photos surfaced of him in a Nazi outfit, all he was given was a verbal lashing by the press for a week and Prince Charles’ version of Hank Hill’s “Dangit Bobby!” and then it pretty much disappeared. Yes, he apologized. “He made a mistake!” people say.
You know how I make a mistake? Keep reading »
