“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.”

- Oh squee of squees! Elizabeth Banks from “Wet Hot American Summer” and “30 Rock” is producing a sitcom for CBS about “the culture clash as a feminist professor rooms with Playboy Bunnies and they all struggle for their own sort of empowerment.” I’m over Playboy Bunnies as a pop cultural discussion point for feminism. But whatever! I guess I’ll have to take my feminism on mainstream TV where I can get it. [Perez Hilton]
- The man who raped a 73-year-old woman in Central Park last month also sexually assaulted two other women on the day of the attack before he was arrested. He had also sexually assaulted two elderly women in the past. Hmm, here’s an idea: don’t let rapists out of jail. [NYMag.com]
- A brief history of Mitt Romney flip-flopping about abortion, based on his recent comments that messing with abortion rights is not on his agenda. It’s also probably worth reading his “Pro-Life Pledge” on the National Review website, too. [Jezebel, National Review] Keep reading »
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]

I’m Sorry, What? Katrina Darling Is An Embarrassment For Kate, But Prince Harry Dressed As A Nazi And We’re Cool?
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 »
Well okay, so he’s not exactly posing-posing for Playboy, but JGL is in this month’s issue, talking about coming from a showbiz family, and what he wants from a girl. (Answer: “You can’t meet someone and think, Do they have everything I want in a person? You just have to pay attention, keep your eyes open, listen to people and be present. I guess what I look for in a girl is someone who’s doing that too.”) Keep reading »
That Middleton family is just oozing with style.Duchess Katherine is the epitome of classy chic, sister Pippa always looks trendy and appropriate, and now, their distant cousin Katrina Darling has emerged on the scene with her own unique and risque aesthetic. Which really is to say, Katrina’s a burlesque dancer who’s on the cover of one of the most famous porn magazines ever, wearing some sexy black lingerie. I don’t know about you, but I kind of love the fact that Kate Middleton’s cousin is on the cover of Playboy.
All you have to do is take one look at their hair to know they’re related. The hair on their head! God. You’re gross.
Katrina and Kate are technically second cousins once removed (Kate’s great grandfather is the brother of Katrina’s grandmother), but still, you can see some resemblance. From their shiny, luxurious locks to their wide-set eyes and big smile, Kate and Katrina have many an enviable feature. It’s no wonder Katrina’s gaining some fame. Read more …
The “fun gene” in the Middleton family didn’t all just go to Pippa! Some of it went to Katrina Darling, a pinup/burlesque performer who just so happens to be related to the Duchess Of Cambridge. Okay, so she is a distant cousin — but related nonetheless. Katrina Darling will shake what her mama gave her in an eight-page Playboy spread being published this September. The petite pinup has recently quit her job as a banker to become an exotic dancer full time. Maybe when things get a little boring around the palace, which I imagine is often, Kate Middleton can skip over to her cousin’s haunts to learn some burlesque moves to impress William. (Or Harry.)

Apparently, back in the day, being a Playboy Bunny involved a lot of rules and regulations. The job came equipped with a 26-page manual, explaining all the rules and regulations of the game — including who and what you could fraternize with, how to wear your makeup, and the proper way to get a sub for your shift. Those bunnies were nothing if not organized.
I’m a fan of referring to pubic hair sans styling as “fur pie,” because it makes everyone in The Frisky offices squeal for some reason. Maybe from now on I’ll just say “1962″ and hope everyone gets my pubic drift. If they watch this clever Playboy South Africa video about how ladies have styled their pubic hair throughout the ages via dude’s hairstyles — totally safe for work! — they certainly will. [The Gloss]
