For some of these celebrities, it has helped boost them back into the limelight, if only in a minor way. For others it's a last-ditch effort to remain relevant, and it fails miserably.
Or, if you're Vanna White, it will help launch you into TV-Land mega-fame.
Now added to the list, Jenny McCarthy.
Jenny has graced the pages of Playboy before, but this time is extra special. This is after her split with Jim Carrey, her psychotic rant about Autistic parenting, and something about buying her kid a gigantic deer head.
I'm sure after that PR nightmare, Playboy got her on the cheap.
And, of course, I had to buy the magazine.
|Wait, there are ARTICLES too??|
When did this happen??
(I say child because I was 12 in '93.)
Granted, Jenny doesn't look as young and perky as she did 19 years ago (she's 40 now), but she's still the same smokin' hot Jenny. Opening up the pages to this magazine was like being reunited with an old friend. An old friend with an amazing rack.
With that said, as much as I like admiring her body (and waxing nostalgic) she as a person is less than great.
But that's what Playboy specializes in. Kim Kardashian posed right after her sextape dropped and was trying to look 'classy' instead of trashy. TV stars, movie stars, singers and athletes all turn to Playboy when they need something to distract them from their personal problems.
Or when they just need the money. (*cough* LiLo *cough*)
With that said, look at the other celebrities in the news that are slowly fading out of the limelight. Miley Cyrus in Playboy seems like a 'when' and not an 'if.' Britney Spears is long overdue. Mariah Carey isn't as popular as she used to be, and this could help make her relevant again. It's not that I want to see them naked per se, (hahaha) but it seems like a logical (if not predictable) step in their spiraling careers.
What do you think? Is this a way of grasping for attention as it fades away? Do they do it because they need the cash? Once an attention whore, always an attention whore? And most importantly, who do you think is next on the 'C-list' parade?
