In one of our absolute favorite unseen moments from season 5 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards were shocked to find out that co-star Lisa Rinna had appeared in Playboy. But of course they then had to take a peek for themselves of the spread.
Which got us wondering, what other Bravolebrities have bared all (or some) for the risqué publication? It turns out that throughout the years we’ve had several Housewives—past and present—who have disrobed for the men’s magazine.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County original was very open and proud of her Playboy past. The mother of three was crowned Playmate of the Month for November 1980, and admitted in a former blog that she still gets her “free issue for life every month.”
As a model, Kelly’s naturally comfortable in front of the camera. But she got really comfortable in March 2010 when she graced the cover of Playboy. Bonus? Her famous fashion photographer ex-husband Gilles Bensimon shot the sexy snaps.
Well before joining the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer was somewhat of a Playboy regular. The former 80s video girl appeared in the publication over 13 times throughout the early to mid-90s.
This Real Housewives of Miami beauty joins Camille as a Playboy return customer. Not only did the buxom blonde cover the magazine in July 2005, but again in December 2009’s Christmas issue. Merry, merry!
Must be something in the water in Miami, because Lisa’s also been featured in multiple copies of the magazine—prior to marrying her husband and appearing on the show. The Real Housewives of Miami star posed in 2006 and 2007.
There are also some honorable mentions worth noting, as some Housewives haven’t bared all for Hugh’s magazine, but for other publications. Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore looked gone with the wind fabulous posing for Smooth Magazine, and the ever elegant Countess Luann de Lesseps cozied up to a cowboy for a 1990 cover of Playgirl.
And some Housewives have done sexy shoots to promote worthy causes. Both the Real Housewives of Miami star Adriana De Moura and Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel pledged their support for PETA’s campaigns by going nude. And Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak and the Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge have both stepped up and stripped down for NOH8 ads.
