Overexposure alert: Melissa Rycroft approached by Playboy?
If you watch any show on television, you've probably seen Melissa Rycroft. First, she was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. Next, she popped up on "The Bachelor." After that came a stint on "Dancing With the Stars." And now, according to Star magazine, sultan of skin Hugh Hefner wants to bring the curvy brunet into his fold to pose for Playboy. Talk about exposure!
According to Star, Hef sent Rycroft a letter inviting her to dinner to discuss the possibility of appearing in his magazine, to the tune of $500,000.
As far as I'm concerned, the most bizarre part of this story is that Hef contacted Rycroft via "personal letter." If that is really true, would somebody please teach the robed one how to use e-mail? Do you think he wrote Rycroft's letter with a plume?
And what do you think? Should Rycroft bare all for Playboy? Or would that tarnish her good-girl image?
And how do you think Rycroft's "DWTS" competitor, Holly Madison, will feel about her ex-boyfriend asking her competitor to bare all? And you thought "The Bachelor" was dramatic!
