I saw a brief clip today of the actress/reality star Lisa Rinna talking about her decision to pose naked in Playboy at the age of 45, and having had two children. This is her second time posing.
She had the support of her husband and I saw the pictures - done in a tribute to the movie The Graduate, with Rinna portraying Mrs Robinson - albeit a naked Mrs Robinson!
Ms Rinna looks absolutely amazing - not because she is 45 and a mother of two, but because she has a rockin' body! Anyone, of any age, with that body, should be very proud!
She said she wanted to show that you can be older, a mother, and still look amazing. I'm sure air brushing helped her a lot (and she does have breast implants and finally admitted that her famous plump lips are implants!) but still - she should be very pleased with the hard work she puts into having such a fit and toned physique.
But other women believe she (and anyone posing in Playboy) are doing women a great disservice by posing totally naked. They feel that women are objectified and due to the air brushing involved (and there is a lot of airbrushing, to be honest) it creates an unrealistic expectations of how women "should" look. And admittedly, many women don't really look like their Playboy spreads, in real life.
Other women have also posed at an older age, like Farrah Fawcett at age 50 and Carol Alt at age 47. Alt's mom said she supported her because a Playboy spread is nothing more than anyone could see in a museum!
Do you think posing naked for Playboy (at an older age than average Playboy models) is empowering to women? Why? Why not?
