I never thought the day would come when Hugh Hefner would become the face of fidelity and sexual morality; but, alas, pigs have flown. At 84 years old, Hef has finally decided to settle down with one woman. Yes, folks, he’s given up his harem of bimbettes for girlfriend Crystal Harris. Sure, she’s bleached-blond and 23, but who am I to judge? He’s calling her “the real deal” and his “true love.” And now that Hef is a man in love, he has a word or two for all these youngin’ sex addicts in the news. His sage advice to master-sexters Tiger and Jesse? “When you get married, you make a commitment. I had a lot of girlfriends, but it’s not the same as cheating. I don’t cheat,” he said. “I am very open about what I do. I think that when you are in a relationship, you should be honest. The real immorality of infidelity is the lying.” Keep reading »
So her hair might have caught on fire Michael Jackson-style, when it came in contact with a candle on set—but Ashley Dupre hardly looks singed on the cover of May’s Playboy. (Which will, uh, not feature Kate Gosselin.) “I had a lot of fun doing these pictures,” said Ashley. “You’re naked and you’re in front of a bunch of guys—good-looking guys, too, manly men.”
But though she likes getting naked in front of dudes, Dupre says she is no longer doing it for money.

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]

There’s a period of time in high school that I’m not particularly proud of and, remarkably, it’s not the time I wore sparkly blue nail polish to prom: it’s when I wore my Playboy Bunny T-shirt. I’d half-forgotten about that thing until I read Playboy is selling official “Playboy Bunny costumes” in honor of their 50th anniversary. My knee-jerk reaction was to laugh. I mean, what a ridiculous costume. Do women actually feel sexy dressed up in a corset, cottontail and bunny ears?
Then I remembered I used to wear a T-shirt emblazoned with the Playboy Bunny logo. Keep reading »
Move it, Easter bunny. There’s a new bunny in town — a Playboy bunny, that is. In honor of its 50th anniversary, Playboy will sell a limited edition set of bunny costumes similar to those worn by waitresses at Playboy Clubs. The $67 bunny costumes — complete with ears and a bunny tail — are available through the website of U.K. sex toys and lingerie retailer AnnSummers.com, which promises the bunny costume “will help women exude the confidence, elegance and glamour of a true Playboy Bunny.”
Uh huh. Seriously.
I, for one, am very excited about this. I totally have my outfit now for a saucy “feminist-activist Gloria Steinem goes undercover at the Playboy Club to write a scathing exposé” role-playing session. [New York Post] Keep reading »
Heather Renee Sweet is Dita Von Teese’s birth name, but how did she come up with her moniker that’s perfect for burlesque? Well, back when she was just a mere 19-year-old stripper, she started going by the name Dita, which she adopted after watching a silent film. When Dita posed for Playboy in the mid-’90s she had to give them a last name to print. She and her friends searched the phone book under Von and found Von Treese. But the magazine printed Von Teese by accident (maybe not?), and the rest is history. [Socialite Life] Keep reading »
Posing for Playboy is the quintessential beauty stamp of approval for some women. But some bunnies still get nervous in front of a cute guy. Check out how Kelly Bensimon goes from calm and collected to flustered once she realizes she’s attracted to her interviewer. Their exchange and the way he asks her on a date makes me think of her as an actual human (as opposed to an evil robot). You can watch the full episode tomorrow on Bravo at 10 p.m. Keep reading »
It’s safe to say that we all saw this coming. We wondered why Heidi Montag chose to do her muddy Playboy spread before getting a marathon 10 plastic surgery procedures done in a single day. Now we know the answer—so she can do a second photo shoot with the new face and bod. She says that she plans to do one “soon, very soon,” and adds, “I cannot wait to show off my new assets. I’m very excited.” And this time, she’ll apparently be taking it all off for the mag. Run. Now. [NY Daily News]

“When Playboy asked me to pose for them, I was incredibly flattered. But it was a big deal for me to actually take off my clothes for the rest of the world. I think people are so excited because they’re like, ‘I cannot believe she took off her clothes.’ They’re like, ‘I can’t believe Kelly’s doing that.’ I’m 41! I’m 41 and it’s all still there. Thank God!”

Yesterday, we reported some off-color remarks John Mayer made about Jessica Simpson in Playboy. Jessica could have taken his comparison of her to “sexual napalm” positively or negatively, depending on how she felt about herself and their relationship. But his musings about black women and use of the N-word weren’t as clever as he hoped, but cemented his status as the biggest jerk with a mic. Let’s dissect what he said and how he tried to apologize, after the jump. Keep reading »
