Salahi in Playboy? Just 'another rumor.'

(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.

    Why is this on the ticker? I thought this was supposed to be about politics, not tawdry articles about star wanna be's.

    I think Obama should give her a job now.
    Obama has brought her into the picture with his famous reception for Indian prime minister. It shows his inexperience. Obama has to go. He is destroying our country systematically.
