Back in 2007, Kim Kardashian posed for the cover of Playboy Magazine. She originally said she regretted posing for the men’s magazine. She even blamed her mom; “My mom actually pushed me to do it! I think she’s living vicariously through me a little bit. I did it because I’m not one of those stick-skinny girls you see. I felt like girls today need to see a normal body.”
Kim is almost 30 now, and on the top of her game. She’s as popular as she’s ever been – and I’m sure Playboy is cashing in on her fame.
What do you think of the new pics?
One more picture after the jump! (more…)

Hugh Hefner is proposing to save the publishing empire, Playboy, that he started, by purchasing up all of the remaining stock shares in the company.
Reportedly, there have been rumors that Playboy is failing, due to down-sizing reports and layoffs.
Contact Music reports:
The announcement sparked reports Hefner would sell his stock in the racy magazine, but the 84-year-old mogul has instead proposed to pay $5.50 per share for those he doesn’t already own in a deal with private equity firm Rizvi Traverse Management LLC. The move would take the company private, reports the New York Times.
However, Hefner’s proposal still has to be approved by company board members before he can move forward with the purchase.
Good luck Hef! He saved the Hollywood sign and I’m sure he can do this, too!

The June edition of Playboy hits newsstands this Friday, and it will come equipped with 3-D glasses! The centerfold is Hope Dworaczyk, Playboy’s 51st Playmate of the Year.
“What would people most like to see in 3-D?” asked Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. “Probably a naked lady.”
Although Hefner is not a huge fan of 3-D, he’s definitely interested in capitalizing on the popularity of 3-D at the moment.
“I’m not a huge enthusiast of 3-D,” he said in a telephone interview. “I leave real life to go to the movies and 2-D is fine with me.”
Is a 3-D Playboy Centerfold really worth it? Guess Playboy needs all the attention it can get. It’s been reported that the magazine has suffered huge losses over the last couple years. Circulation has dropped from 3.5 million in 2006 to only 1.5 million today. Hefner is hoping that people will get off the internet, and buy the magazine instead.
“People want things that last and have meaning,” he said.
“This particular picture is one example of how books and magazines are different (than computer images),” he said. “You can hold it in your hands, save them, and as Dad used to, put them under the mattress.”

One man appears determined to crash the party at the Playboy Mansion.
Los Angeles police say a Ventura County man rammed his vehicle into the gates at Hugh Hefner’s legendary home twice in the past week.
Detectives believe both incidents involve an “ongoing dispute,” Lt. John Romero told the Los Angeles Times, without offering details.
Jason Lee, a police spokesman, said no one was injured in either incident.
The unnamed suspect was arrested and released after the first crash last Thursday night, Lee said. He slammed his car into the gates again Tuesday, but fled before police arrived. The gates sustained some damage.
Police did not know if Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine, or his three girlfriends were at home at the time.
Officials at Playboy’s corporate offices in Los Angeles and Chicago could not be reached for comment Wednesday night.
