Bad Playboy, bad...

While I can't blame Playboy for wanting to have Jessica on the cover (face it, Willa Ford is hardly a name), the way they went about it was hardly ethical. I hope she wins. Who's with me?

I'm with you. Having Alba on the cover is one thing. Having her illegally on the cover is quite another thing.

I read a news article on Yahoo! about this and I'm disgusted by how they went about this deception of readers.

What they did re. JessA was shiftless, but not nearly as heinous as printing unauthorized topless beach shots of Uma Thurman a decade ago (also featuring her on the cover against her wishes), as well as putting my Goddess Charlize on the cover and running early nude shots of her that were NOT intended as a "Playboy" shoot; to this day, there are those who think/insist Charlize "posed" for Playboy-that is NOT the case, and shows how far that mag has fallen in the eyes of many (esp. me)...

Also with you. I remember seeing that on a newsstand and thinking to myself, "What bullshit. Hef knows better than that."

Because, as we all know, if she ever did Playboy, I would have a post on my blog that took up the whole page with the content of it being "yee-ha!" stretched out to about 26 pages worth of content.
