After a stint in rehab and plastic surgery debacle, things may be looking up for Tara Reid. Although she shot down rumors of an engagement to her entrepreneur boyfriend Michael Axtmann, she does confirm that they are happily in love. “I got a beautiful ring from my boyfriend for my birthday last weekend,” Tara said. “But we’re not engaged…yet!”
Tara says that having her love life in the right place was one of the reasons she felt now was a great time to pose for Playboy. “Playboy had approached me in the past, but now just seemed like the right time to do it since I’m in a great place in my life and in love,” she says. “I felt incredibly comfortable at the shoot. I think it helped a lot by choosing a brilliant female photographer.” Tara’s issue hits newsstands December 18th! [Source: People.com; Photo: Getty Images]
Although reality star and Playboy playmate Shanna Moakler appeared on the Wendy Williams show to promote her makeup line, somehow talk quickly turned to another hot topic: the Kardashians. When asked about Khloe Kardashian‘s recent quickie wedding, Shanna replied that she did not go to the “donkey’s” wedding.
Obviously not appreciating the ASStastic reference, Khloe took to her Twitter to tell Shanna how she felt. “who is shanna moakler??? i have no idea who this girl is but i guess she is talking about me. Talk on honey… I can care less LOL,”Mrs. Odom said.
Rather than fight back, Shanna used her Twitter to apologize. “We don’t know each other personally and I apologize for my comment this morning.”But was her apology sincere? Shanna followed up with, “it’s not a big secret that the Kardashians and I don’t really get along. I don’t care.” [Source: NYDN; Photo: Getty Images]
Holly Madison doesn’t like to watch her ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner‘s reality show with his three replacement girlfriends, Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. “I had a great time with Hef and the girls when they came to see “Peepshow” and hang out in Vegas. I don’t watch the other episodes, though, because it kind of makes me mad. The girls need to focus on what makes them unique and not doing the same things Bridget, Kendra, and I have already done on the show. Even camping in the backyard was an idea I had for an episode that we never got around to shooting. And guess what they just showed? The girls camping in the backyard. I don’t want to look behind, I want to look forward.” The show apparently doesn’t miss Holly too much, as they had a record breaking 2.4 million viewers for the new season.

We really shouldn’t be surprised at anything that comes out of Heidi Montag’s mouth – after all, she thinks Spencer Pratt is a hot, marriageable catch. But what is news to us, is that her Playboy spread was in fact part of Heidi’s own self-mythologizing plans.
“I wasn’t nervous [about the shoot] because I’d got my body and mind into shape for it. My aim is to become an iconic sex symbol, and the Playboy shoot is the first step,” she told Closer magazine.
Sorry – our mistake, Heidi. We didn’t know you were joining the hallowed ranks of Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot! Thanks for letting us know. We only anticipate (with horrified head-in-hands mode) what your next “iconic” step will be. And we can’t remember any of these legendary ladies promising to get “triple X” boobs for their husbands. Or pole dancing for the cameras. [Photo: WireImage]
It’s not like her boobies are any big secret, she gladly paraded them around on the pages of Playboy, but nevertheless, the red carpet is not the place to show off what Hugh Hefner gave you. Holly Madison nearly put her nipples on display last night when they almost popped out of her bubblegum colored confetti tube top while she walked the red carpet for “Peep Show” at Planet Hollywood. Holly currently stars in the “striptease spectacular” along with Aubrey O’Day. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Kendra Wilkinson is about to pop out her baby boy and the E! reality star had a Playmate-studded baby shower to get ready to welcome her new little one into the world. Hugh Hefner, new girlfriends Crystal Harris, and Karissa and Kristina Shannon attended the event. “The girls are going to Kendra’s baby shower today,” Hef wrote on Twitter. “Crystal, the twins, Holly, Bridget & Kendra will all be there. How can I stay away?”
Playboy Mansion secretary Mary O’Connor hosted the Candyland themed event at her home, and former Girls Next Door Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt arrived early to hang blue balloons and blue streamers. One former playmate who was clearly NOT invited: Kimberly Hefner, who Hef filed for divorce from this week after an eleven year separation. [Photo: Getty Images]
Eh? Yes, Hugh Hefner is still married. We’d kind of forgotten that. But the womanizing octogenarian has finally filed for divorce from former Playmate Kimberly Conrad, whom he married in 1989 and separated from in 1998. “I am happy to be out of the marriage. I only remained married (to Conrad) for the sake of the children, at her request. I am happy to have this behind me,” Hef told TMZ.
Right, but surely their two sons will have realized that the ever-changing menu of “Aunties” Bridget, Kendra, Holly etc etc at daddy’s house surely meant all wasn’t well between him and mommy? The divorce petition comes a couple of weeks after Kimberly sued her estranged husband for $5m relating to the sale of a house. Hef wants to set spousal support at $20,000 a month, saying he has been “generous to a fault” to his ex. [Photo: WireImage]
Before being accused of choking reality star Tila Tequila, NFL star Shawne Merriman had some oddly foreshadowing words about his allegedly violent behavior. The football star, who appears in the October issue of Playboy, said, “I’m so dangerous right now, I scare myself,” when asked about his rebuilt body.
Shawn, whose nickname is “Lights Out” for his ability to knock players out, tells the mag, “…on the field, I’m a beast and a killer.” Shawne also shared that he had a rough upbringing “and some of the unfortunate things that happened are why I’m able to do what I do now. I’m built for everything that’s taking place now.” In high school, “parents sent letters complaining that I shouldn’t be on the field with their sons, that I was an animal. It was hilarious. They stopped letting me hit in practice. Whenever we had contact drills, they’d send me over to another field, where I would practice hitting dummies.”

Former Spice Girl Mel B has done well turning her super-ripped body into a profitable industry — with her Totally Fit DVD and stint as British bra brand Ultimo’s celebrity face, she’s got the honed curves most women would dream of. And that men would dream of in a different way, obvs, which is why Playboy magazine have been sticking their dollar-encrusted oar in. But Mel’s made it clear that actually, things are going well enough at the moment without having to resort to Heidi Montag tactics.
“They’re offering me a ridiculous amount of money but I’m just not ready to do it. I’ll consider it in the future when I feel the time’s right,” she said. Translation: when the time comes when nobody is returning my calls and a hot body is the only thing I have left, then I’ll do it. We like Mel a lot, so hope we don’t have to endure her mens mag special anytime soon. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Holly Madison has made no secret of her breast enhancement, rhinoplasty, and other plastic surgeries, but in a new interview, Holly reveals that it was insecurity that led her to go under the knife.
“Living with Hef brought down my self-esteem a lot. I was comparing myself to the other girls…You have to look a certain way at the Mansion. If you look at Hef’s girlfriend now, she basically looks like a clone of me. It’s kind of weird,” Holly says.
Holly says that pre-boob job, she had a tough time hiding her homemade enhancement secrets from her beaus. “I always stuffed my bra. In fact, I had a boyfriend for years, and we moved so slowly. We didn’t have sex for a long time because I had to gradually bring down my bra size so he wouldn’t find out I stuffed my bra.” [Source: Popeater; Photo: Getty Images]
