Daisy Lowe Gives Us A New Word For Our Lady Parts

“When I did the shoot it was just me and the photographer. I didn’t think about the whole world seeing me naked. Everyone can see my nunny. My gran was cool and said, ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it’. But mum and dad weren’t so impressed.”

Daisy Lowe, i.e. the daughter Gavin Rossdale discovered he had a few years back, talks about how her family reacted to her recent spread (pun intended) in Playboy. A few notes: It shocks me that someone posing nude for the mag wouldn’t process the fact that many, many people would eventually be seeing the images. But that’s not the important part. The real nugget here is that we should all be referring to the vagina as a “nunny.” As in, nuns have them too? Also, sounds like she has a cool grandma. [ONTD]

Gloria Steinem Urges Boycott Of “The Playboy Club”

I, for one, am excited about “The Playboy Club,” NBC’s new fall show that sounds like a bonus dose of the sex, drugs and cultural upheaval we’ve come to love from “Mad Men.” (Come back soon, pretty please?) But other ladies are less than thrilled, such as the inimitable Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon/all-around badass who went undercover as a waitress/Bunny at the Playboy Club in 1963 for an exposé in Show magazine. In an interview with Reuters to promote a new documentary about her life, the 77-year-old huffed and puffed, “Clearly ‘The Playboy Club’ is not going to be accurate. It was the tackiest place on earth. It was not glamorous at all.” I take her word for this: her exposé revealed many things to the public about the so-called harmless fun of Playboy Club culture, including how all the waitresses were required to have a pelvic exam and a test for STDs. Let me repeat that: waitresses had to get tested for STDs. “[O]ne of the things they had to change because of my expose was that they required all the Bunnies, who were just waitresses, to have an internal exam and a test for venereal disease,” Steinem said, no doubt with pride. She continued to praise “Mad Men” as “a net plus [for pop culture], because it shows the world of the early 1960s with some realism.” However, she added, “I expect that ‘The Playboy Club’ will be a net minus and I hope people boycott it. It’s just not telling the truth about the era.” Keep reading »

Mercede Johnston Slams Bristol Palin, Says She Got Preggers On Purpose

“Levi was whipped like Todd, because Bristol is very manipulative. She’d use sex to get her way on many things … Bristol’s pregnancy wasn’t unexpected, an accident. She and Levi planned it. They were trying to conceive for months.”

Mercede Johnston sounds off in the new issue of Playboy about her brother Levi Johnston‘s relationship with Bristol Palin and drops the bombshell that the two allegedly planned to have a child together. I would be much more inclined to believe this if the rest of her quotes in the articles weren’t so ranty. And if she were wearing clothes while she said it. [Playboy] Keep reading »

9 Famous Names You Wouldn’t Guess Got Their Start In Playboy

Surprise! Designer Cynthia Rowley got her big break thanks to Playboy. At a party over the weekend, Rowley was overheard saying that she got her very first credit in a magazine when she was a student and Playboy published a spread of a model in a sailor hat and matching skirt of her design. The only problem? She couldn’t show her parents. Luckily, after graduation, one of Rowley’s grandmothers gave her $3,000, which she used to launch her first line. Soon, she was having fashion shows in her apartment attended by the likes of Andy Warhol. [Page SixWikipedia]

Charlie Sheen’s Former Goddess, Bree Olsen, On The Cover Of Playboy

Rachel Oberlin, aka porn star Bree Olsen, had the good sense to finally ditch Charlie Sheen via text message. But her spot in his pantheon of goddesses has earned her the August cover of Playboy, posing in about 1/5 of a Charlie T-shirt. I also like that she’s both wearing tiger undies and posing with a tiger. Winning! [BuzzFeed]
