The founder of Playboy magazine, Hugh Hefner, has died.

The 91-year-old, who began his publishing career in 1953, is understood to have passed away peacefully from natural causes.

Twitter has reacted to the news with tributes to the businessman and reality TV star in the wake of his sudden passing this week.

From Larry King to Kim Kardashian, Twitter is awash with messages remembering the man affectionately known as Hef.

Hugh is survived by his wife Crystal, four grown children, Christie, who served as CEO of Playboy Enterprise for more than 20 years, David, Marston and Cooper, who currently serves as Chief Creative Officer at the company.

Speaking of his father's impact on media, Cooper said: "My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom."

"He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history."

Hugh Hefner died at the Playboy Mansion surrounded by his loved ones.



Back in July Playboy model Dani Mathers hit headlines when she openly bodyshamed an unsuspecting nude gym goer on Snapchap.

And now that police have finally tracked down the victim of Dani’s mocking, it looks like the Playmate could be facing up to six months in jail.

According to TMZ, the woman featured in the controversial snap – who happens to be aged in her seventies – wants Dani to “feel the full force of the law” for photographing her while she was changing in an LA Fitness changing room.

Police are reportedly encouraging prosecutors to charge the former Playmate of the Year with the Dissemination of Private Images for sharing the snap which read: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”

It is said the LA native’s victim is more than willing to testify and cooperate however she can in order to ensure justice is achieved.

Dani was forced to apologise for her actions earlier this summer after receiving huge backlash online when the degrading snap went viral.

In July she wrote on Twitter: “I’m sorry for what I did…I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing.”

The model also used Snapchat to claim she models because she loves the female body and that she understands bodyshaming is wrong.



Congrats are in order for Holly Madison, she has just become a mum for the second time!

According to E! News, the 36-year-old gave birth to a baby boy.

Holly's Hubby, Pasquale Rotella, broke the news on Instagram, saying: "What an incredible week. A crazy, stressful start, which transformed into this magical moment.

"First, a five-year-long indictment against me was finally dismissed; then yesterday Holly, Rainbow and I welcomed a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce baby boy to the family."

"Now I'm holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you. Definitely one of the most memorable weeks of my life!

"Lots of love to everyone who took the time to post, tag or send me a message online. I'm grateful & touched! We'll be heading home from the hospital later & I'll be posting photos of the new baby soon. Thanks 'n love you ALL!"

We wish Holly, Pasquale, their daughter Raindow and their new son all the best!



After being barred from every branch of LA Fitness and suspended from her role on a radio show, Dani Mathers probably thought things couldn’t get much worse, but it looks like she was sorely mistaken.

The Playboy model and former Playmate of the Year, who recently hit headlines for posting an image of a naked woman on Snapchat, has now learned that police in L.A are investigating the matter.

Dani, who has apologised for her actions and insisted that the image was meant for a friend and not her Snapchat followers, has – understandably – received little sympathy following her major social media faux pas.

Commenting on their decision to revoke Dani’s gym membership, Jill Greuling, the executive vice president of LA Fitness said; “Her behaviour is appalling and puts every member at risk of losing their privacy.”

“Our written rules are very clear: cellphone usage and photography are prohibited in the locker rooms. This is not only our rule, but common decency,” she added.

While the LAPD intends to pursue an investigation into the ‘illegal distribution’ of the image, they are unable to proceed until the woman at the centre of the image presents herself to authorities.

According to The Independent, police in LA are urging the woman to contact police, saying: “Without a victim, we can’t go forward.”

With LAPD eager to pursue their line of enquiry, defence attorney Lou Shapiro has asserted that the Mather's actions have far-reaching implications.

"A judge could take a dim view of the action and really want to see her punished," he told the LA Times this week.




Social media went into meltdown this week when Playboy model and former Playmate of the Year, Dani Mathers, violated another woman's privacy by sharing a nude shot of her on Snapchat.

Publicly mocking the unassuming woman, whom she encountered in a ladies locker room, the model wrote: "If I can't unsee this, neither can you."

Sickened by Dani's disregard for both the woman's privacy and emotional wellbeing, the internet called on the star to apologise which she did  – claiming the photo was posted in error – but it's simply not enough.

Despite insisting that she loves the female form and the post was for a girlfriend and not meant to be seen by the wider public, Dani has been barred from the gym (and all its branches) and suspended from a regular slot on a radio show.

According to TMZ, a representative for the LA Fitness chain confirmed that Dani "is not permitted back at any club, ever" while the powers that be at LA's KLOS radio station have suspended the model indefinitely from her role on the Heidi and Frank Show.

Dani has deleted her Twitter account in the aftermath of the uproar.



No matter how content you are in your own skin, no one feels their best when they have to strip off in the locker room after an intense gym session.

Thankfully, most women have the common decency to turn a blind eye to one another and leave their phones in their lockers when it comes to communal showering, but unfortunately Dani Mathers isn't one of them.

In one seriously d*ck move, the Playboy model and former Playmate of the Year took it upon herself to take a photo of an unassuming naked woman which she then posted to Snapchat.

Shaming the anonymous individual, Dani captioned the picture: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

Thankfully, it looks like Dani's followers are a lot sounder than she is and wasted no time calling out the star on her shameful behaviour.

Realising she didn't have the backing of the public on this one, Dani apologised before suggesting that she had no intention of publicly shaming the woman and the image was only meant for a girlfriend.

Whether for public or personal consumption, it was still Dani that captioned it…



Chelsea Handler is known for revealing as much – if not more –  than the high-profile guests who appear on her popular comedy talk show, Chelsea Lately, so it's no real surprise that she decided to open up even more during an essay she recently penned for Playboy.

Reflecting on her teenage years, the 41-year-old star admitted that she became pregnant twice at the age of 16 and opted to terminate the pregnancies on both occasions.

"I was going through a very bad stage in my life. I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should've been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex," she wrote.

Drawing down on her inability to process the magnitude of the situation, Chelsea wrote: "I wasn't really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, Why not? I can have a baby. Maybe I'll have twins and give them rhyming names."

Chelsea went on to acknowledge her parents' role in the decision to terminate the first pregnancy, but admits that when she became pregnant by the same boyfriend for a second time that year, she was on her own.

"I didn't have the money the second time," she wrote. "I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion. Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it's still necessary to make a thoughtful decision."

The New Jersey-native insists that she made the right decision on both occasions and simply wasn't equipped for motherhood at the time, writing: "We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to f*ck up twice at the age of 16. "

"I'm grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family."

"I'm 41 now. I don't ever look back and think, God, I wish I'd had that baby," she insisted in the lengthy essay.


Everyone and their granny knows the Playboy mansion and its reputation for throwing the most lavish and, erm, erotic parties in Hollywood.

But it seems that all of it might be coming to an end soon. TMZ has reported that Hugh Hefner is selling the Playboy Mansion, with an asking price of €200 million.

The 29-room home sits on nearly five acres of land across the hills of LA, and is going to be listed in the next month, sources say.

But, it doesn't mean it's the end. If Hugh decides to sell the house, it would be under a stipulation, meaning Hugh will be able to live in the house as a condition.

The house as first built in 1927 and the entrepreneur bought the house back in 1971 for only €1m.

The mansion has also appeared in numerous TV shows and movies including Entourage, The House Bunny and Sex and the City.


It seems that Playboy is finally buttoning up it's shirt. 

The magazine has been synonymous with the naked female form since it's beginning in 1953 but editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner has revealed in a statement that times are changing – and so is Playboy's wardrobe (or lack of it for that matter). 

Starting with the March 2016 issue, nude photographs of models will no longer exist in ANY issue. 

"Playboy will continue to publish sexy, seductive pictorials of the world's most beautiful women, including its iconic Playmates, all shot by some of today's most renowned photographers," the publication said in a statement. 

"The magazine will also remain committed to its award-winning mix of long-form journalism, interviews and fiction."

Playboy Enterprises CEO, Scott Flanders, spoke to The New York Times about how it makes sense to change at this time. 

"That battle has been fought and won. You're now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free and so it's just passé at this juncture."

The drastic change in the audience demands has not only taken a toll on the magazine's reputation but also on it's sales. 

In the Seventies, when Playboy was in the height of fame, the magazines circulation was in its millions, where as today it has dropped to only 800,000.

The issues have been credited with playing a major role in America's sexual revolution, with Hollywood's major celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Sharon Stone and Kim Kardashian all posing on the front cover through the years. 

And along with bringing in wardrobe, the magazine will also welcome a clean and modern new look.

"A little more accessible, a little more intimate," said Cory Jones, chief content officer of the magazine.

"Don't get me wrong," Cory said of the decision to go nudity-free. "12-year-old me is very disappointed in current me. But, it's the right thing to do."


It was recently announced that she had become the oldest model to grace the front cover of FHM.

Yup, there's no denying that Pamela Anderson has still very much got it aged 48.

However, attending a Peta 35th anniversary event last night, the actress's face certainly seemed a little, well, different.

Posing up alongside an all-in-orange Courtney Stodden, 21, she was barely recognisably in a full-length black, glizy gown which showed off plenty of her trademark cleavage. 

It could be that the star has been experimenting with different make-up techniques – or she's possibly recently opted for fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments.

Animal-loving stars had certainly been out in force for the high-profile event, which was held in Los Angeles. 

The likes of Joanna Krupa, Moby, Seth Green, Ireland Baldwin, Kesha, Tish and Noah Cyrus, Anjelica Huston, Jason Biggs, Alicia Silverstone, and William H. Macy were all there to lend their support to the animal rights' charity. 

And Paul McCartney provided the musical entertainment during the evening with guests also taking part in a silent auction.

Despite Ms Anderson's sex symbol status – cemented during her years on Baywatch – she revealed in the November edition of FHM that her home is not littered with images of herself. 

"You won't find a photo of me in my house! No way," she stated. 

"Well, maybe a few family shots of my boys and I, but no Playboy covers. No paintings, even."

Earlier this month, Pammy also posed up completely nude for famed photographer David LaChapelle, as seen on the cover of the September edition of Flaunt. 



Well, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is definitely not buying Holly Madison's book. 

Months after the reality star released her memoir Down the Rabbit Hole, former co-star, Kendra, is making her voice heard about how the book is "absurd."

E! News got an exclusive sneak peak to Friday's Kendra On Top, and it sees Kendra meet up with a close friend.

The former bunny can't help but express her anger about the tell-all book. 

"She writes a book putting rumors out there about me all over the Internet and stuff. It's just absurd," Kendra explained.

"Seven years later and this bitch is talking about s**t that happened while I was f**king 18, 19 and 20."

When Kendra's friend starts to question Holly's motives, Kendra can't help but assume there is some serious tension and animosity coming for her.

"We were never friends. At the end of the day, what we did was we just f**ked the same man. That's not friends."

She continued, "Obviously, she's trying to get the public to think different of me, which I am who I am. I've never faked s**t a minute of my life."

Ouch, it's all getting heated now! Whatever the outcome of this, we're sure it'll be juicy!



It’s safe to say that Kim Kardashian well and truly fulfilled her quest to break the internet, but it seems that sister Khloe is hot on her heels.

According to reports, the reality star is poised to become the next pin-up for Playboy magazine when she poses for an upcoming issue.

If rumours are to be believed, the 30-year-old will not only be fulfilling “a dream of hers”, but she will also be pocketing some major cash from the deal.

Indeed, the $1 million figure is what has been bandied about on the internet since the story first broke this week.

A source told OK! magazine: “Khloe is dying to prove she’s just as hot as her sisters. She thinks her curves are a perfect fit for a men’s mag and being in Playboy has always been a dream of hers.”

Following Kim’s shoot for Paper magazine, and now pregnant sister Kourtney’s nude shoot for DuJour, Khloe is supposedly planning the most risqué project of all.

“She wants to cause shock waves when she reveals her new body,” the source added.

Those girls certainly know how to cause a stir!
