My mom never had a collection of Playgirl magazines. Thank God! The idea that she once got off to Burt Reynolds’ mustachioed mug would be too much for me to handle. But we know Burt, Mark Harmon (who?), and other ’70s and ’80s studs graced the covers of Playgirl during the mag’s hey-day and they’re lovingly collected on a bitchin’ new — mostly-SFW — Tumblr called Let Them Eat Beefcake. As mesmerizing as those cheesy ‘staches are, I love the articles touted on the cover of the 1977 “Special Valentine’s Issue,” like “The 60-Second Period” and “The Boy-Rapist Next Door.” Beefcakes, like cheesy reading, truly never go out of style! (P.S. Do you think, 20 years from now, our daughters will be wondering what we saw in Levi Johnston?) [Let Them Eat Beefcake Tumblr] Keep reading »
“I’m playing high school. I’m not one to flash my business. It’s a little racy.”
—Chord Overstreet of “Glee” explains his rationale for turning down a $100K offer from Playgirl. Guess he’s not as easily impressionable as Levi Johnston? [People] Keep reading »
It’s time to play another round of “How much would Playgirl pay famous dudes to take their clothes off?” Last time we talked, Vinny of “Jersey Shore” got an offer for $30K, which doesn’t stack up to the $100K that Levi Johnston supposedly netted from the mag. Now, Playgirl is after the men of “Glee.” But not just any “Glee” stud—they want Chord Overstreet (Sam) or Mark Salling (Puck). They’d pass on Cory Monteith (Finn) or Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schuester). A rep for the mag said they would offer Chord and Mark $100K each for a shoot, and assured them it wouldn’t even have to be X-rated. Keep reading »
When Snooki hooked up with Vinny on “Jersey Shore,” she let us know that he is packing some heat below the belt. To be specific, she said that smushing with him was like “putting a watermelon in a pinhole.” Apparently, Playgirl was listening because they’ve offered Vinny Guadagnino $30,000 to pose nude for their magazine. Apparently, Clone-a-Willy.com—which is owned by Playgirl—has also offered to make a replica of his nether regions. [NY Daily News]
Sure, $30K sounds like a lot of money, but how does this stack up to offers other famous folks have gotten? Keep reading »

And sure enough … here she is! Keep reading »
Cover your eyes! Hide the children! Gawker reports that Pauly D and his Prince Albert piercing are meeting with Playgirl this week to discuss a possible photo spread. Allegedly, both sides are interested in bringing pics of his JWoww-approved junk to the masses; the porn mag and the “Jersey Shore” star just need to settle how much pics of Seaside Heights’ most famous penis piercing are worth.
Ick, ick, ick. I have seen Levi Johnston pose for Playgirl and you, Pauly D, are no Levi Johnston. [Gawker]
We last wrote about “Jersey Shore” when we posted pics of Snooki’s wild night in Miami! Keep reading »
Last night on “The Joy Behar Show,” host Behar asked her guest, Levi Johnston, how he feels about being a gay icon. “You come from a conservative background and Alaska’s not the most liberal state,” she said, “and yet, you seem to be very comfortable being a gay icon.”
“Once I started doing all these tours and everything,” Levi replied, “I just, you know, they’re people too. It doesn’t matter to me, more fans, it’s great.” Clip above. [via PopEater] Keep reading »
