(CNN) - A spokesman for Michaele Salahi of White House party-crasher fame batted down on Saturday morning a story that claims the “Real Housewives” star would be appearing nude in Playboy.
“It’s another rumor,” Salahi’s media liaison Michael Cruz told CNN. “We have no information about any official offer from Playboy.”
The celebrity gossip blog TMZ reported overnight that Salahi had a Playboy photo shoot booked for later this month and that Salahi would appear “full-frontal, birthday suit naked."
“I haven’t spoken to anyone at TMZ,” Cruz said. “I am trying to track down who at TMZ they are getting their information from.”
Salahi and her husband made news as the "White House crashers" in November after attending President Barack Obama's first state dinner without an invitation.
On September 9, Salahi's representative reached out to CNN to explain that while they were totally unaware of an offer made to Michaele Salahi to appear in Playboy, an offer was indeed extended.
Since September 4, "Playboy has indeed made an invitation to Mrs. Salahi. Which came first is unknown? Did the media push this story and then that drove interest to Playboy??? We don’t know…and it all happened as a result of the frenzy of interest over this past last Holiday weekend through till now, or did the request come first? We simply don’t know," her assistant Jennifer told CNN.
That is low...What else can you expect from them?
Old age is finally tacking a toll on Hugh Hefner .
As long as the media make people who do stupid things rich and famous the number of people doing them will continue to increase.
I wish I could truthfully say that CNN has sunk to a new low by publishing this drivel as political news, but unfortunately it is all to common from CNN these days.
Ted Turner, Great American, is surely disgusted at what his creation has turned into.
And this deserves a headline??
CNN, you flounder between wanting to be a gossip magazine and Fox?
How about becoming the station you claim to be?
Boy..breaking the law sure pays off as far as the media goes...hmmmmm
Once again we reward bad behavior with wealth and fame. In a perfect world, both of them would be sitting in jail awaiting their trial for trespassing. These are the sort of people we see every day cutting in line, driving badly, and generally finding exceptions to the social norms that our society bearable. Sadly, somebody will buy the magazine and the cycle continues...
Playboy would no sooner photograph this "stick" than do a nude male. She's ugly, to boot. Freaky.
Maybe she can earn enough money posing to get a boob job or at least buy some falsies
Why is this story considered political news. This type of journalism cause me to think that the news industry in not concerned about real news as much as the next story. And when people like the president calls CNN and others on crazy stuff like this, they are somewhat "beating up" on the media. The media needs to grow up.
Looks like she might have a nice rack. Why not? It's not about her. It's about selling magazines and her getting paid to help sell those magazines. That's what free enterprise is all about. It's not about anything more than that. I'll buy one.
When will one of the Palins pose? it's only a small step from reality tv.
At least this news puts Sarah Palin off the page for a while. The stupidity of some of the American populace is a national disgrace.
That figures. In America today, there is no real punishment for bad behavior unless you kill someone. So she's is going to bare all. Her husband must be proud. Enjoy yourselves guys!
it was either playboy or dancing with the stars..
Maybe she and Bill Ayers can pose holding a homemade bomb painted as a phallus. You know Bill Ayers don't you ? Proud bomber of federal buildings in the U.S. Long time friend of Barack Hussien Obama.
Here's the issue of Playboy, destined to stay on the shelf. Why would anyone waste their money on this, if the economy is as bad as everyone says. Seems like the mortgage, rent and groceries would be more important. Or maybe we're being fed red herring?
I won't waste my time to look for such an aging body and a disturbed mind. I doubt Playboy would want to have her on their mag. May be Penthouse or some other cheap Sex mag.
Sorry, I want spent a dime for such an horror!.
Nah,...NOT going to go there. Winter is comming and I DO need some kindlin' thou'...:)
On the other side of the news...my partner and his investment group have just purchased their 7th house from the mortgage fiasco started under the Bush administration! I feel sorry for the people who were "sold" these shelters from the money grubing people that allowed them to do so with NO $$$. It is a buyers market now. Altho' some of the people have gotten pissed and cut the electric and plumbing in order to "get back" at the system. The opporitunities are there if you search. Beau Colby
This infatuation of self-absorbed dimwit types by the "mainstream" corporate biased media sounds familiar??
Oh, that's it ............. maybe she could run for Governor of Alaska? LOL
wow...these 2 scumbags sure aim high, don't they??!!
Why is this in the political ticker? Seriously, don't undermine the importance of true political news with the shenanigans of these two wannabe somebodies. She's on a TV show now and it isn't exactly State of the Union with John King.
This couple is two of the most pretentious irritating people on Earth. They take "Wannabe" to another level, riding in limos to vineyards, etc. This couple acts like they need a couple of solid slaps to the face. Talk about disgusting....
the media has made so many fake celebrities
like bristol palin... i mean really people... she is a star for being a teen mom???
this chic is a star for breaking the law????
whats wrong with us
