Playboy Playmates and vintage stars unite at Hollywood Show Chicago

Playboy Playmates at the Hollywood Show--(clockwise from L) Gale Olson, me, Liz Glazowski, Reagan Wilson, Crystal McCahill and Cathy St. George with Maybelline.
I always love participating in autograph signing conventions. I used to meet up with my Playboy Playmate pals at Glamourcon, a show that was run by Bob Schultz but no longer exists. I lamented this loss and didn’t think I would have any other chance to see my friends now that Glamourcon is gone and... Read more »

Playboy Magazine's smart move: Nudes are back thanks to Cooper Hefner

Playboy Magazine's smart move: Nudes are back thanks to Cooper Hefner
I never thought it was a good idea to transition to a non-nude Playboy Magazine and now my instincts have been confirmed. Thank goodness for Cooper Hefner. He was never in favor of this move and now, four months after being brought on as chief creative director, the no-nudes policy has been scrapped. In this... Read more »

Will I have to eat my words concerning Playboy magazine's new direction?

Will I have to eat my words concerning Playboy magazine's new direction?
Well, as many of you know, I’ve been a staunch critic of the new direction Playboy magazine has been headed. The first magazines, featuring the “no-nude” look, were a complete embarrassment that had images of girls who looked half-drugged out and like someone Roman Polanski would hit on. But, after receiving the latest issue, I... Read more »

Is there a conscious effort to ruin Playboy Magazine?

Is there a conscious effort to ruin Playboy Magazine?
And I thought the first non-nude issue of Playboy Magazine was bad! OMG, I just saw the April 2016 cover and I just can’t believe it. I now think there is a conscious effort afoot to completely ruin the magazine, particularly in the image Hugh Hefner visualized. I can’t imagine how he feels, sitting at... Read more »

Playboy's new covergirl Sarah McDaniel almost loses it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
I stayed up later than I wanted to just to get a look at Playboy’s new covergirl Sarah McDaniel on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. She is, as you know, the first to pose in Playboy’s new, “improved” edition sans nudity. Supposedly, she was chosen due to her Instagram following (299K) and her photographer... Read more »

Playboy's decision to drop nudity: Say it ain't so Hef

Playboy's decision to drop nudity: Say it ain't so Hef
When I was a Playboy centerfold in December 1979, the circulation was around 5.6 million. Today, that number has dropped to 800,000. Clearly, something wasn’t working. But I think Hef’s decision to “drop nudity” or rather make it “PG-13 and less produced–more like the racier sections of Instagram”, according to Cory Jones, a top editor... Read more »

The Naked Truth: Partying with Playboy can be FUN!

With the holiday invitations starting to arrive, it gave me pause to think back about some of my favorite parties.  Obviously, with my rich Playboy history, thoughts turned to Hugh Hefner ( Hef).  And even though he’s not as young as he used to be, his parties continue to be legendary.  From the recent reports...

Candid Candace Discusses Playboy's Move with CBS 2's Pam Jones

Candid Candace Discusses Playboy's Move with CBS 2's Pam Jones
I am saddened to learn that Playboy will be moving their offices to LA.  Sad but not surprised.  This move has been in the works, albeit on the QT, for quite a while.  Actually, I was surprised that they didn’t move when Hef did many years ago, so I guess they’ve been on borrowed time...

Playboy's Playmate Casting Call Draws Hundreds (PICS!)

Playboy's Playmate Casting Call Draws Hundreds (PICS!)
  Playboy Magazine’s recent casting call found some sure winners, in my opinion, when almost 300 hopefuls attended the recent auditions at the W Lake Shore.  It was a long process but the girls happily filled out necessary forms, had their waists measured, slipped into silk robes and then took the long walk to the four...
