Stars rejected by Playboy

Alas, we may never see these celebrities in their birthday suits... in Hugh Hefner's magazine, at least.


    Stars turned down by Playboy

    What's wrong with these hotties, Hef? These stars have all been rumored to have been rejected by the legendary men's magazine.  Click through to find out all the details! (AP/Bravo/AP)

    Kate Gosselin

    When asked if there was any possibility that the mom of eight would appear in "Playboy," Hef said, “No! No!” He then suggested that he doesn’t even know why she was on “Dancing With the Stars,” saying “I don’t think she’s a celebrity.” Ouch.  No word on whether Kate wanted to appear in the buff anyway.

    Farrah Abraham

    "Teen Mom" star turned porn star Farrah reportedly reached out to Playboy several times, asking Hef if he'd like her to pose. The magazine mogul said no way, but Farrah took her clothes off anyway. She released a series of nude photos on her own.  See the full NSFW Farrah gallery here.   

    Britney Spears

    Britney wasn't rejected so much as wait-listed. In 2007, "Playboy" reps said, “Hef has said that he is more than happy to feature Britney in the magazine once she can put herself back on the road to recovery.”  She has to get herself together before she poses nude? That's not the way it usually works. Read more here. (REUTERS)

    Shirley Jones

    Though she worked in a Playboy club during her youth (see left), the former "Partridge Family" star was reportedly turned down for "Playboy." Shirley reportedly "posed for a series of test shots that showed off her cleavage and legs, but Hugh Hefner said he expected more nudity from the actress."  Don't feel bad, Shirley, Hef just wanted to see more! (Playboy)

    Kelly Osbourne

    Ozzy's little girl reportedly expressed interest in posing for "Playboy" a few years back, but noted that she "would need some airbrushing." Hef's rude response: “I can’t see it happening somehow; we don’t airbrush to that extent.” Jerk! (AP)  

    Bridget Marquardt

    Though she was one of the “Girls Next Door,” Bridget reportedly couldn’t get her pics in "Playboy." After some failed test shoots, the buxom babe was apparently rejected, but Hef wound up inviting her into his pack of blonde TV girlfriends. She eventually posed with her co-stars but never got the solo attention she hoped for.  (REUTERS)


    The faux lesbian pop duo of the 90s (remember "All the Things She Said"?) reportedly wanted to pose for "Playboy," but both the American and the German editions of the mag said thanks but no thanks. They did get a blurb in the music section, though. (AP)

    LuAnn de Lesseps

    "Real Housewives of New York City" star (and former Countess) LuAnn was visibly jealous when castmate Kelly Killoren Bensimon was asked to pose for "Playboy," spouting, "No one asked me!" She later backpedaled, saying, “I think my 15-year-old would have a heart attack if I were to do 'Playboy.' It’s not something I really want to do.” Thou doth protest too much, LuAnn! (Bravo)

    Audrina Patridge

    You may recall a certain set of "accidentally" leaked topless photos that were attributed to "The Hills" starlet. Audrina reportedly hired a photographer to take the shots for submission to "Playboy," but the photos were rejected.  Never give up on your dreams, Audrina!  (AP)

    Courtney Stodden

    The teen bride tweeted that she wanted to pose in Playboy, but the magazine reportedly had no interest. Playboy reportedly said she "doesn't meet the standards of a Playboy model" and she looks too "enhanced." Click here for more photos of Courtney.
